Fast, safe, clean.

Perfect journey. First time I've been on one of your buses where the Aircon wasn't freezing. Finally a bus I could sleep on 🤙

Robbie B.October 8, 2019 | 

A 10 hour bus with no charging ports is a joke. I also misplaced my luggage tag so the guy said I had to pay him, which I knew couldn’t be true, so I gave him what was in my pocket and he told me to get off the bus.

Terrible service bus left and arrived late, no toilet paper and the toilet didnt flush

Tres bon bus

Anna T.March 16, 2019 | 

Very professional, punctual and comfortable. Cold in the night

Noa L.February 1, 2019 | 

The drive drove too fast, it was dangerous and scary. The way was dark and the path was really curvy so we could not sleep peacefully or walk normal to the bathroom. I came and asked the driver to slow down a little bit but he answered rude without the willingness to help me feel secure. My friend and I are disappointed and will never go on this company again.

Everything was great except it felt like a fridge, not a bus...

Lindsay S.January 3, 2019 | 

Great trip. Fell asleep and woke up for a timely arrival. Only complaint was the thick smell of urine inside but everything else was great! Would def use again.

Tom F.November 11, 2018 |

Bruno G.November 11, 2018 | 

The bus driver left me in a stop. He forgot me. And I had to find another bus

Miriam H.September 25, 2018 | 

It wasNT cold inside the bus. Thise was great. But my seat was moving a lot. That's not nice.

Raul D.August 15, 2018 | 

Muy recomendable y cómodo! Buen conductor!

Ernie T.August 5, 2018 | 

The duobus was great - there was a rain storm enroute thru road construction and driver handled very well. The only problem that my bags were put in luggage compartment in area which got wet in storm - i had to take them to get washed and dryed - cost 40,000 peso or $15 USD - I think a gift coupon of $15 that i can apply to future bus trip

Gabriela F.June 12, 2018 | 

The bus was clean, well kept, with free wifi, and power outlets. The bus was spacious and comfortable. The bus was on time

Alexandria E.May 8, 2018 | 

The bus was cold and no tv but good otherwise

Sami S.April 26, 2018 | 

During the night bus, my laptop was stolen from my carry on luggage, which was located under my feet.

Joshua U.March 28, 2018 | 

There was a leak in the roof and I got drenched. Worst experience yet.

Myran Karnig B.March 6, 2018 | 

Nice, helpful people. Bus made good time despite much road construction. Seats were good too. I will use them again.

Busra C.December 17, 2017 | 

One of the staff was very rude. He wanted to change my seat with two Colombian girls but he didnt know any English and was COMMANDING me to change. Its not nice. Altho the bus driver was driving so FAST i couldnt sleep! He drove so fast we arrived 2 hours early. The roads are already bad, but the driver could drive a little slower so we could sleep cause it was a night trip. I dont think ill buy another ticket from this company.

Eoghan T.October 28, 2017 | 

Driver kept music blaring and had loud conversations all night. Could get zero sleep.

Emily H.October 18, 2017 | 

The bus was freezing, and arrived 3 hours early as the driver was a maniac

Chad D.October 16, 2017 | 

Toilet was clean and spacious. Seats great and comfy slept well. Movies and music but Spanish only couldn't find subtitles. Arrived early

Rodolfo R.October 2, 2017 | 

Clean, good timing, good pitstops. Best quality in Colombia imo

Alana K.September 17, 2017 | 

Would be great but for the ridiculous unmoving footrests that don't allow anyone taller than 5'7 to stretch their legs out. Other bus companies also have the footrests that fold down from the seat in front and considering Bolivariano is supposed to be "the best" I was sorely disappointed. Won't be using this bus company again.

Camille F.September 19, 2017 | 

the driver was driving so fast it was not even pleasurable to be in the bus. It makes me feel sick and i went to the toilet when the staff told me i could not be sick in the toilet and i had to go back to my seat and vomit in a plastic bag wish i did not have. They didn't care of me at all. The bus was scheduled at 9 and arrived at 9:40 which is very late and they took my ticket ike it was not a good ticket told me they were coming back but they never did. I thought i would get kicked out of the bus until the bus leave without saying anything.

Raphael J.August 17, 2017 | 

Great service, in time, comfortable seats with powerplugs and movies played, all good!

Julian S.July 24, 2017 | 

Very disappointed that tv was on full volume till 1am!! Couldn't sleep!!!
