Driver was personable. Coach was in excellent condition. We were advised of the stops before reaching final destination, and we arrived on time!
No request for improvement. 5 Star experience!

I fell asleep with my head against one of the chairs in front of me and it irritated the skin on my forehead. Maybe change the cleaning solution on the fabric?
