Coach Trip Reviews from Wanderu Customers

Overall score for coaches from Halifax to North Sydney

(Based on 2 ratings and reviews)




1 November 2023- Visiting family

Maritime Bus

Pros: Loved that there is no smoking and it is quiet with no loud music so you can read quietly. The driver was excellent and the drive very smooth even in a snow squall. I wish the phone charger had been working as my phone was low so I couldn't really use it much. But overall all its a great way for family to get home from the airport. Cons: It would be good to write instructions on where the bus station is at halifax airport as I had to ask at the booth. I'm so glad there was someone at the booth for ground transportation at the airport. Tips: Bring a pillow so you can rest your head and snooze and bring snacks .

The bus driver. He announced where each stop was going to be. He also let everyone know how long the stop was and, if smokers had time to get off for a cigarette. He was such a nice, courteous driver.
