The transportation situation is an absolute disaster. We were told that the bus would leave at 8:15 and that we should show up 15 minutes beforehand. After much confusion upon arrival at the travel agency office, we were silently led a considerable stretch to an underground bus terminal far from the meeting point found on our itinerary. After sucking bus fumes in the darkened terminal for over 1/2 an hour with a large group of families, I asked our chain-smoking bus driver (who was far removed from our darkened and locked bus) when we were finally leaving, and he replied in the most rude and arrogant manner I've ever encountered. We left at 9:15. After a fantastic day in Parc Asterix, this very same bus driver left the families baking in the sun for over 1/2 hour past the clearly designated leave time of 18:30. When he finally found time to pull up, he managed to insult just about everyone who dared to ask him why he waited so long. He even found the time to tell me that I should go back to England (a country in which I, by the way, do not reside.) That he was still able to smoke so many cigarettes between insults is a minor miracle. I've never complained about anything online, but this man should not be working with foreigners, or people in general for that matter. It wasn't just the driver.The entire run-around from the travel agency is a minor disaster. Clear information, accurate pick-up and leave times and a bit of courtesy would be major improvements. That said, the park deserves 5 stars. It is lovingly conceived and executed. Just PLEASE do something to overhaul the transport arrangements.
