Great Service - nice bus and bathrooms for a long hall trip - good safety and nice movie and food too

David F.February 17, 2020 | 

I like the professionalism of the staff. The seats are comfortable and the ride is smooth. The food is poor. In Arequipa the bag claim was a big confused mess, not like Paracas where it was organized.

Staff didn't make any announcements (stopovers..), just gave away the snacks and turned off the lights directly, no drinks..

On this trip no USB charger was available to my seat as it was broken and when l asked crew member on other socket to connect he didn't propose any solution (eg. on his seat for example), they also needed to be reminded on switching on the tvs for movies, didn't intoduce the trip details and themself etc

Hot and slow

We had tickets from Puno to Arequipa at 8am and we arrived early to the station, that was when the staff told us the bus was not going to leave to Arequipa due to the demonstrations. They did not give us any more alternatives and we lost our flight from Arequipa to Lima. They could basically let us know the day before so we could rearrange the trip, but they didn't.

A comfortable trip. Drinks could be offered another time other than just with lunch but overall a good trip.

Anna V.July 14, 2019 | 

Everything perfect, fast, the staff was helpful!

Ricardo B.July 2, 2019 | 

I went with my girlfriend and the counter attendant sat us 7 rows apart even though there were about 11 open seats!! I thought it was because the bus was full but again when we arrived in Arequipa I realized there where so many seats empty

Rokas R.June 14, 2019 | 

We have bought vip travel with hot meal. Unfortunately we did not get hot meal. Additionally there was no wi fi. Dissapointed on waisting Additionally dollars...

A disaster, worst experience ever

Rachel S.May 22, 2019 | 

Mine and my three friends bags got sent to Cusco instead of Arequipa. Meaning we had none of our belongings for almost 24 hours. We are going to the terminal today as they should have arrived then. We now have to spend more money on two taxi rides there and back to collect the luggage.

Virginia Z.May 22, 2019 |
