Attendant was excellent. 1st driver was slow and steady and got lost getting in and out of Juliaca bus station. 2nd driver was ridiculously aggressive trying to overtake when it was obvious there wasn’t room so had to keep slamming the brakes on. We hit a number of speed bumps really hard as he was going too fast and braking too late. Really uncomfortable for the passengers when every stop is an emergency one and you’re thrown up out of your seat due to such poor driving. really disappointing when our previous experience with Cruz del Sur has been excellent.

I love riding with Cruz del Sur. However the food was just a croissant with a slice of bologna, no condiment, (so extremely dry) and a slice of sweet bread. Further the bus was REALLY hot for the second half.

Good drivers today! Nice seats. Unfortunately the hostess was hardly present. No towall at the entrance so the floor in the bus got wet. No attention during the 7 hours trip. No stop to stretch legs and buy some food and water. We only got a sandwhich, cake and tea at 08.30 hrs..

Es hat gestinckt nach Urin im hinteren Teil des Busses auf der 2. Etage die ganze Zeit. Sogar in der Toilette war der Geruch nicht so stark, wie im Buss. Es gab keine Information auf Englisch.

Nice Coaches

I paid extra for seat 1-10 on the bottom in order to be able to sleep. However, water was dripping all over my seat from the window and ceiling, so I had to move upstairs where the seats don't recline and there is more noise, and more people. I did not sleep as a result.

Super nice bus!

Constance H.December 3, 2019 | 

Déçu par le repas servis. Un petit morceau de pain avec un demi tranche de jambon et 1 part de cake... un peu léger. Pour le reste, rien à redire.

Benedikte R.November 25, 2019 | 

This company has everything in order to create a great travel experience. They are profesional and the travel feels safe. But, on both on my journeys now, they have the same problem. They can’t figure out how to use the aircon/heater in a way that makes the passengers feel comfortable. My last trip to Cusco was a nightmare, with the heater on and no understanding of why we don’t need the bus to be 30+ degrees. And when they finally turned the heater of, they put on the aircon that made us freeze. Why not something in between??

Good comfort. Too hot on the 1st floor.

Vivien K.October 26, 2019 | 

It was a great experience, the staff was nice during the whole trip

Willem W.September 24, 2019 | 

Picking up passengers in Juliaca making twice the same round in town without a reason. Flat tire just before Cusco.

Małgorzata M.September 23, 2019 |

The bus is uncomfortable and the time to get on the bus and have back the luggage is too much. Poor organization.

Great service

Jean A.July 14, 2019 | 

I’ve travelled with CDS several times but I was scared by the reckless driver today. Everything about the bus etc was great except the driver was too fast, overtaking in dangerous places and a couple of times I feared we would overturn.
