Overall a good experience. Mendoza bus station isn't the greatest and the woman at the Andesmar counter (who run the Nevada service to Santiago) wasn't very clear about which platform the bus was leaving from but we found it anyway. Staff on the bus were much friendlier and helpful especially with immigration procedures at the Chilean border. Bus was comfortable and got snacks plus a sandwich which we weren't expecting. Slightly late departing and arriving but less than 15 mins so no real issues. Would travel this route with this company again.
Very clean and comfortable bus, except that several passengers, including myself, complained that the seat backs’ reclining feature did not work.
I would like to give the driver a 5 star rating. He was excellent!
For two non Spanish speaking people the staff was great. When crossing border double checked our papers to make sure we filled them in correctly. Lunch was really good. Will travel by bus again on another trip.
