Suite bus not available at Puerto Iguazú, had to change in Pasados, this meant a seat change to one I had no booked, I asked for a singluar seat or my original booked seat and was told it was already occupied. Not happy
The coach arrived on time. We were driven safely to our destination on time. The coach was not the highest standard but comfortable. The toilet was quite clean with water, soap, loo paper and towels. But the coach drivers were unfriendly, never smiled and on the 21 hour journey never once invited us to get off even for 5 minutes. When I asked if there were 5 minutes at one longer stop, the driver replied, “No hay minutos!” We have travelled in similar long journeys with other bus companies in Argentina where the drivers have been friendly, pleasant and have offered a few minutes at stops for passengers to have a very short break. It was a relief to get off this coach in Buenos Aires.
Very comfortable recliner seats, with support for resting legs. The USB charging ports were broken on several seats, and I had to hunt for an unoccupied seat to find a port that would work. Overall, I would recommend. Always better to see a country by land, if one has the time.
Seat allocation didn’t match bus layout so our booked tickets together split us up. Everybody else seemed to do a ‘free for all’ so difficult to get any sleep before about 1am when the bus was finally full.
Comfy seats. Friendly staff but a bit of a bun fight until everybjj oh dy calmed down at about 1am!
When I first arrived for the bus 20 minutes ahead of time the man at the desk was very unpleasant and started shouting at me that my bus was already here and to move, I was only asking him to print my ticket as my hostels wifi had been down and felt 20 minutes was enough time to spare. I then got to the bus and there was a big cue anyway to put your bag on. I was told i had no time to run to the shop right next to the bus for water even though I waited another 15 minutes to get on the bus anyway, staff were not very pleasant. Was told we would stop at 11 and I could get water (this was 5.30pm) when the bus did stop there was no shop open to get water and the meal that was served was a tiny cheese and ham sandwich and a tiny cup of orange juice. I was also told the bus would stop in the morning which it did to drop people off or for petrol but nowhere to buy any juice. I felt severely dehydrated as had been on a bus for 21 hours as the bus was 2 hours late and had only had a tiny cup of orange juice and didn't feel the staff were very approachable to ask for more due to my first impressions of them. Moreover not only did my charging port not work but of all the seats around me none of them worked and down the side of my chair there was loads of leftover food and some had gone mouldy. Not ideal for a 21 hour journey. I had read bad reviews before booking but thought people were probably just being picky and understand it is a budget bus but I have travelled with other budget buses and not had this experience. I am not usually one to complain but felt these things should be highlighted and people should be aware to buy things before boarding this bus to avoid a very uncomfortable journey.
Enjoyed the journey with Rio Uruguay, food was good considering we are vegetarians so we just took out the meat. It was not the bus's fault that we arrived late as we were stopped many times by the police. The lady working on the bus was not very friendly. I did not understand what she was saying and she refused to let me use the toilet twice by shouting at me.
There was no one at the ticket desk up to 45 minutes before my bus left. I waited to get my ticket printed, but no staff member showed up. A lady at the help desk even asked the bus driver if I was okay with just an electronic copy and described the situation, but that was not allowed. I had to run down the road 10 minutes before my bus left to try and find somewhere else that could print my ticket for me. Not a good first impression with this bus company.
Super friendly staff. We got food but we didn’t know that, so that was a good surprise. It was a bit on a strange time though (10:30pm) and it was not so good. In the morning we good some food again which was fine (a very sweet cookie and some salty cookies). The chairs were great and we received a blanket and pillow. Again, very friendly staff!
I was not happy with this company. no blanket was provided. this is the only company where this has happened, and it was cold. dinner was at 11pm. and the toilet was dirty abd leaking on the floor. not to mention 2 hours late arriving.
We were unsatisfied with our bus journey. We left 25 mins late, no information was given to us from any of the staff. There were not stops to service stations as we have experienced with every other bus we have travelled.
