Left on time, arrived on time. Plenty of space, a couple of short stops, and a functioning air-con.

The trip took longer because of festivities on the way (not companies fault), it was very hot (not companies fault), the aircon did not work and everyone was sweating like in a sauna (van was overheating). The driver was trying his best, but everybody was reliefed when it was over.

This is a great company...I pre-booked and paid on line from Australia with a minimum of fuss...very easy. It’s a great way to sit back and relax for approx 4 hrs travel time to Kampot (which is well worth the journey). Be warned...The road is unsealed in places and really bad with lots of uneven stones and big potholes....much safer and easier for the bus to manoeuvre rather than a small van or car. Large reclining seats make the trip even more enjoyable...don’t go any other way...take a tip...just sit back and enjoy the safe comfy ride.

Comfortable seats and given a complimentary pastry. Long journey 4 hours not 2. Very slow and bumpy.

The bus was really comfortable, the viennoiserie and the water were well appreciate. The staff was nice. The toilet was broken ( but the driver stopped if we needed too) and sometime, I felt we were going a little bit fast despite the conditions of the road (really bumpy). It took us double time to get to Kampot, but it was understandable knowing the conditions of the roads. Overall, I suggest this company and will take it again.
