really comfortable seats! The 10 hour journey was surprisingly bearable - and the food provided during the trip was, while not the very best - entirely edible and appreciated!

Catherine Emilie L.November 30, 2019 | 

Awful smell in the toilet with no paper. Internet wasn't functionning. The temperature varied inside the bus from very hot to very cold. Cheap lunch for a 10 hours trip (1 piece of dry bread, jam, cookies, small juice and tea).

Stephen R.November 29, 2019 | 

There was no clear instructions where to get the bus from. It said estacion waschaq on the tickets but there is no bus station there so I had to book another bus and take it from the main bus terminal. It cost me much more and 3 taxi rides

Shahar A.October 23, 2019 | 

No wifi no hot meal and the staff was apathetic.

Ofek D.October 22, 2019 |

Yara G.October 20, 2019 | 

Nice company. The chairs are comfortable.

Marlies V.August 15, 2019 | 

We were not in the system although we had a confirmation. We had to wait for more than one hour to fight about our Seats. Finally two minutes before take off we could finally come on the bus.

Lesley F.August 3, 2019 | 

This was the best bus that we travelled on in Ecuador and Peru. The departure station was very professional and organised. They provided food on the bus. The seats were wide and comfortable. I would definately use this bus company again

Katie B.July 29, 2019 | 

Everything was great with the exception of WiFi being advertised but not accessible on the bus.

Massimo A.July 22, 2019 | 

Bus was very clean and comfortable. Service arrived early in Puerto Maldonado

Edvin E.July 15, 2019 | 

False on the 160 degree, no wifi, and it was very hot. But comfortable seats otherwise

Eleonora F.July 12, 2019 | 

I lost my money in the bus. Very bad

Varvara B.July 9, 2019 | 

Good clean bus, good quality screens. The promised "hot meal" was not served, instead it was a juice box and a cold pastry thing. Don't expect to be able to sleep haha, but that's justthe nature of the trip :)

Milda K.May 18, 2019 | 

Wifi was not working, the bus didn’t have power outlets

Paul V.April 21, 2019 | 

The bus was canceled

Randi L.April 4, 2019 | 

Our bus was delayed by a landslide that made us 10 hours late coming in. Which is just bad luck for those of us who were on a schedule. However, there was no information provided as to why we were delayed or possibly how long we could be late. I and several other tourists had no way to contact the tours we had booked to let them know what was happening. Basically, the entire situation would have been less stressful with more information.

Emily U.November 13, 2018 | 

Very comfortable seats, nice blanket and pillow, nice TV. My seat did not recline as far as others which was too bad. I should have changed seats. Overall impressive service.

Wenqi J.August 17, 2018 |

Eric Y.May 22, 2018 | 

The bus left exactly at 9pm and arrived 30 mins earlier than expected. Staff are nice and drivers are safe.

Ausrine Š.May 1, 2018 | 

It was too hot, we asked yo turned iff heater and the smell of other people socks was terrible so we were riding with open window. But other things was great!

Simone R.April 7, 2018 | 

Great service, very comfortable. Hard process with only minimal Spanish but once on board, comfortable and easy to sleep. Food and entertainment provided.

Valentin M.November 21, 2017 | 

I booked two seats next to each other and ended up with one seat on the first floor and one on the second floor...

Emanuel S.September 14, 2017 | 

The best !!!!!! I love Cruz del Sur

Robyn H.September 2, 2017 | 

I took an overnight bus with my boyfriend. We left nearly 45 minutes late. My seat was right beside the heater or just some part that got EXTREMELY hot- the ride was stifling and made it impossible to sleep. We had to open a window. Only after several hours was the air turned on to help circulate. The bathroom was also filthy and smelled horrible.

Alaina S.August 27, 2017 | 

Would be nice if the staff also spoke some English. Was difficult for me to understand

Desley N.June 23, 2017 | 

A very good experience.

Marie Q.February 8, 2017 | 

Ever time the bus stopped the AC would go off and it would get extremely hot and humid on the bus. Even while the bus was running the AC did not seem to work well and it was hot.

Xinmiao S.January 1, 2017 | 

No Exclucive bus at all. We had to change another company.

Janice L.September 21, 2016 |
