When buying the ticket it said I would arrive in Lima at 12 at night. I arrived at 3 in the night! We stopped somewhere for over 2 hours so the driver could do a nap. Next time it would be good to change drivers, so the people can get to the place in time.
Our 16h30 bus ride from Arequipa to Lima passed by really fast as we were able to sleep most of the time! Seats are super comfortable and snacks are good. Really enjoyed the ride and would totally recommend!
I booked a window seat, but was given an aisle seat with no option to change. Movies played incessantly, with overly loud volume pumped through the entire cabin with no option to turn down or off. Seats were small and less comfortable than Econociva seats. Overall negative experience, but still worth the low price I paid (hence 2 stars rather than 1)
