VIP seats, but no blanket and pillow, in the same seat from Lima to Nazca we have it

Tatsiana V.March 12, 2020 | 

Best owernight bus experience! Absolutely horizontal seats on the second floor

Nanna L.March 10, 2020 | 

There wasn’t much leg space in this bus, which we’ve been used to in all other Cruz del sur busses. Also the Bus arrived to our destination 1,5 hours late... We can’t complain about the staff !! Very helpful and good service.

Nice Bus and Good Food

Andrew Michael F.March 8, 2020 | 

This was the third journey in a suite bus over the last few weeks. On the first two journeys we received a hot meal and on the last overnight journey we also received a bun for breakfast. On this journey we were only given some crackers. I do not understand the inconsistency of this service.

Poor communication. Bus was cancelled with no further information provided.

John M.February 25, 2020 | 

VIP seats have zero leg space when the seat in front reclines full back. Being 6ft 5 it made for very uncomfortable journey.

Annika N.January 8, 2020 | 

The air in the Bus was really bad, i got verry sick on this journey because of this

Gabriela Corina N.January 7, 2020 | 

The seats were really comfortable and we could actually sleep. It was a very positive experience. I would do it again!

Lizanne C.December 24, 2019 | 

The ride was very bumpy and I was unable to sleep. The station staff was effective.

Temi A.December 14, 2019 | 

Good bus company with attentive staff, but seats are not so comfortable for sleeping in the semi-cama section.

Christopher D.December 6, 2019 | 

The staff had no idea where i was supposed to go. I was there 2 hours early and the bus left without me because staff kept sending me to other terminal locations. I ran after the bus caught it and they refused to let me on. They took my luggage. The next bus left late and broke down and arrived late

Agneta L.November 12, 2019 | 

Great improvement from my former trips was that there was toilet paper. Very good!

Daniel M.November 12, 2019 | 

Sat by the toilet which smelt, it’s was way too hot so I was sweating for most of the night. Bus felt like it was going to fall apart at some points. Food was terrible, chairs were super uncomfortable

Esther V.November 12, 2019 | 

Bus left at 20:30 instead of 21:10 I just made it by a minute. On board we saw the safety video I guess more than 10 times because it wasn't shut off. Then after an hour the k 't I let didn't work and everything smelled like urine. It was a horrible ride... Never taking this company again

Nitisha P.November 11, 2019 | 

Horrific. Perhaps the worse 13 hours of my life. Uncomfortable in every way

Man In C.November 4, 2019 | 

The bus's suspension system was too weak, couldn't sleep the whole night.

Laura V.November 3, 2019 | 

We booked a xl seat, but in the bus were only regular seats! Couldn’t sleep at all!

Aisling K.October 31, 2019 | 

Comfortable bus, very organized and secure.

Costas C.October 27, 2019 | 

The bus was very late and also the bus was cold and no blankets or cushions were offered.

Rebecca S.October 9, 2019 | 

The bus was extremely hot on the window seat by my feet. Felt like they were going to be burned.

Jake W.October 8, 2019 |

Great service and amazing seats. Was able to sleep comfortably most of the night.

Marie G.September 25, 2019 | 

The street was horrible and I couldn't sleep well on the bus, but I guess that would have happened with other bus companies as well. Staff was very friendly!

Mireia P.September 20, 2019 |
