The company was perfect, and the trip was smooth and everything went as planned. My only problem was with the booking procedure, specifications regarding the seat should be chosen upon making the booking (on our trip from Sao Paulo to Rio de Janeiro we got VIP seats, while on our way back from Rio de Janeiro to Sao Paulo we got standard seats, even though we wanted VIP seats like the ones we got on our first trip but we didn’t know how to choose VIP.
Very pleased with trip
Good quality and cheap
Very pleasant journey. Comfy seats and lots of legroom.
Exceeded my expectation. Very comfortable seats, fast usb chargers. Internet is a bit too slow. Generally I am very satisfied.
I wish the bus had wifi or power outlets
Some leak on the bus caused hot air to enter the bus. It was way to hot
Good comfortable journey
It was mentioned as exclusive bus with food and drink service. I paid extra 70 brl for this. But there was none of them. I request this money difference back Also air contitioning was too high, so cold, that ı got sick.
Very comfortable coach. Professional, safe driver. Really heavy traffic caused delays- nothing could be done about it.
Good journey !
The bus stopped working in the middle of way.
comfortable seat , wifi was good ) left on time .
It’ is a really bad company.
We got the date wrong and they changed the ticket no problem at the ticket office for no charge , no hassles . No English but we got the job done. One thing to note was that the air conditioning rained down on a lot of passengers , luckily bus not full so we all could move seats .
Long story the bus was about 3 hours late making me late for my flight
Missed my flight

the bus was very nice with nice reclining seats so i had a good sleep. the only problem was the bus was too cold
Very comfortable coach. Nice quality seats. Good to have individual facilities to charge phone. Would have been useful to have a written sheet to translate info from driver into other languages.
Very comfortable. Difficult to understand sometimes as information about the service stop etc was not given in English. The driver seemed to have lots of difficulty driving up hills. Very happy with the baggage storing system.
Very comfy bus. Graft wi fi on board. Felt safe and enjoyed the drive.
Perfect bus ride, super easy experience. Spacious Bus & nice staff.
Comfortable seat. Air temperature could have been cooler. Slept most of the journey.
