Colonia Express Customer Reviews

  • "Colonia express were excellent but Bad info from direct ferries"

    The email we received from direct ferries stated we were to check in at the port. Incorrect. We booked a hotel near the port to walk the next day but turns out we needed an 18 minute taxi to get the bus. On the map of directions given by direct ferries it took us to a place 2 blocks away from the actual place where we needed to be. With 20+ kilograms on out backs that is not close enough. Misleading info spoiled the trip however we had no issues whatsoever with colonia express. Comfy bus with plenty of leg room and a good ship. All on time and very organised.

  • "Enjoyed the trip"

    Took the ferry to Colonia, it was a pleasant ride over. The return was a little confusing, getting in to the right line to board, etc. but the ride was really pleasant.
