Unfortunately we didn’t have a great experience from Bogota to Medellín. The bus was comfortable at least and played movies. We had a 6:40am bus scheduled to arrive in Medellin at 4:40pm. We left at 7:00, and we were not even in Manizales by 4:40pm. Which Ian nearly 4 hours away from Medellín. Unsure why this was because at that point there hadn’t been no stand still traffic. It was past Manizales that we hit stand still traffic 3 different times. Traffic is understandable, there is not controlling that, but the fact that we were so far behind prior was frustrating. We at least had enough water. There were no updates or explanations. We arrived in Medellín at 10:40pm.

Bus driver careful in his driving. Bus : toilet facilities totally unacceptable, lacking soap, hand paper towels, toilet tissue. No flushing availability to toilet bowl. A disgrace and/and a public health hazard! Driver advised of same and customer referred to company HQ to lodge complaint!!

A good service and bus

Sandip M.October 27, 2019 | 

Great seats. Lots of legroom. We left late and reached late. There’s roadwork on in some parts so we lost time there too I took the bus to experience the Andes, and be up close to the mighty Magdalena. Both objectives fulfilled The driver was quite “wild”

Ashwin S.October 25, 2019 | 

Good, can give blankets as is a cold drive

Kurt R.September 24, 2019 | 

There are no safety belts in the bus. I've been in a bus accident before and it wasn't pleasant. It would have been a lot worse without a safety belt.

Robert S.September 22, 2019 | 

very comfy, large seats, good temperature

Elpidio R.September 4, 2019 | 

Better than many riding experiences I read.

Aniss G.August 26, 2019 | 

Good. Nothing bad but also nothing special. Would take again.

Rimma K.July 29, 2019 | 

A bit cold on board.

Nathaniel B.June 16, 2019 | 

Friendly staff and a comfortable ride. Cam seats recline to a comfortable level. Bus did stop randomly throughout the night.

Cemal E.May 14, 2019 | 

We waited for more than an hour

Tin K.May 11, 2019 | 

The trip was smooth. But the Aircon was terrible

Harmit S.May 10, 2019 | 

Long route but Bolivariano trys To make it comfortable. The route is very windy though, so be ready to feel uneasy.

Alice H.April 14, 2019 | 

Very uncomfortable bus. No blankets provided. Sat next to the toilet as we booked last minute, very smelly. Also the Rapido Ochoa sign on bus meant some passengers (like us) couldn’t see out the window. Seatbelt did not work properly. 2 hours late.

Lora S.April 5, 2019 | 

Had a very cold night! The AC was blasting. Everybody was covering themselves with jackets. No English subtitles on the movies and the light wasn’t working so couldn’t read :(( NO food as opposed to Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador so need to bring your own. On the other hand the seats were comfortable, the TV was working and the bus was clean.

Nathalie V.April 4, 2019 | 

Good service

Sabrina K.April 3, 2019 | 

Very good

Andreas P.April 3, 2019 | 

The bus was well equiped but arrived too late

William M.March 30, 2019 | 

The driver stopped constantly - he added about 3 hours into the journey time - he was stopping to talk to people and drop packages and it make a 9 hour ride over 12 hours - not a good time

Ramon N.March 26, 2019 | 

Safe, skilled experienced professional

Christian M.March 22, 2019 | 

Bus was comfortable and easy

Victoria R.March 9, 2019 | 

Everything on time, the bus was just not really comfortable even in the premium class. Not enough space for a regular European (1,75 meters).
