Fantastic busline that even provided a great dinner and breakfast on the overnight bus ride, and had personal entertainment!

Alena D.December 23, 2019 | 

We were dissatisfied with the meal. We were supposed to get hot meal, but got a bread with ham and for breakfast (I suppose) was the choco balls package.

It was so nice!! Highly recommend this company. Good chairs, had our own tv’s, got some food as well.

The staff was very unfriendly. The woman in the bus was not smiling at all. The customerservice was very bad. My friend had pain at his stomach and he couldn't use the toilet. She was talking with the bus driver to stop for a bathroom, but she never came back to us and they didn't stop anywhere. Also the entertainment in the bus was very loud because they only have a few televisions. So we must wake up very early.

First warm bus journey I've had in Peru!

Freakin cancelled all the buses from Arequipa because of the strikes without warning any of the customer nor offering a payback procedure

Comfertable seets, kind personal. Only the sound of the movie was too loud. Personally I would like it better when there is no movie at all.

Zak M.June 5, 2019 | 

My USB port didn't work and my table wouldn't stay up, the bus was also too hot

Lisa Maria A.May 15, 2019 | 

Comfortable but late. Food only snack.

Louise C.April 16, 2019 | 

It was a great trip. The only issue was that I couldn’t eat anything because they didn’t have vegetarian food, but perhaps I missed somewhere I was supposed to inform the bus line of this in advance.

Frederik H.April 15, 2019 | 

It would have been nice if the occasional message / information in the bus would have been in English. The guy in the bus was very friendly. The guy at the check in counter was not very communicative.

Excelent service

Emanuela B.January 13, 2019 | 

The bus broke down before Nazca we had to wait 5 hours for a replacement bus. We were not provided any extra water or meal on the bus. I am pursuing a complaint and a reimbursement.

Los micros son muy confortables. Sobre todo los suite.

No hubo wifi en todo el camino

Best bus I've had in South America, will be using again

Liam R.April 16, 2018 | 

Mostly the bus was fine, however the seats were described as "lie flat" when we booked through bus bud (the whole reason we chose this bus over any other) - in fact they were only 160 degrees. Also my chair was broken so would not stay in one position but reclined freely whenever Ieaned back. Bus left on time but arrived over an hour late. Food was alright.

Sarah C.April 8, 2018 | 

The bus was extremely warm even with the air conditioning. Also, having a meal is great but if the person in front has their seat reclined it’s quite awkward to eat on your lap.

Betsy A.October 22, 2017 | 

So comfy

Alessandro B.September 15, 2017 | 

Best bus company in Perù

Elnaz V.August 24, 2017 | 

Nobody spoke English. Not even when they started bording. Also during the trip. I was not too sure what's is going on .

Andrew K.June 1, 2017 | 

Best bus company in South America

Clay B.November 7, 2016 | 

The bus said I would arrive at 830am in Ica. I got in at 4am and was very shocked when they woke me up and told me to get off.

Lucy B.September 19, 2016 | 

I didn't enjoy the way the bus was driven, it was as if the bus driver was driving too fast and felt out of control

Isabelle L.September 2, 2016 | 

A Jack to recharge electronics would be nice
