Pros
Not the trip back of course.
Cons
I didn't like the fact that the bus broke down and that we had to stay for over an hour in a parking lot, in the middle of nowhere with no possibility to have a coffee or to seat. This is not very professional. Several passengers told us that it had happened before.
Tips
Please don't use Idirondack. The company should at least reimburse us. that bus company.
