I liked the seat of the bus, while travelling to Munaar. But there was no good songs in the bus. Otherwise everything was comfortable. Bus was very punctual. We were dancing,singing and enjoying very much. The bus driver and staff co-ordinated with us and they didn't disturb us. When we returned, we also had a nice sleep in the bus. I like the lines in the bus "Don't copy my style".
