The air conditioning was broken, so it was absolutely boiling inside the bus. We ended up having to break open the emergency exit. It was so uncomfortable, I couldn't even fall asleep.

Sharmayne R.9 January 2019 | Staff: 3 | 

The ticket was easy to sort out. The bus was clean and comfortable. The journey was relatively smooth. It was late to arrive, but that was due to traffic. It could be better signposted in the station.

Stephen C.6 January 2019 | Staff: 5 | 

Very good service I was very impressed

Andrew B.4 January 2019 | Staff: 5 | 

International traveller and found Expresso do Sul was a comfortable drive with good seats. Wifi was also pretty good.

Lilly R.4 January 2019 | Staff: 2 | 

The bus took me to the wrong location/directed me the wrong way. I was told online and when purchasing the ticked and by three employees that the bus would take me to the GRU airport. I was trying to get to the airport not some crowded bus station with zero WiFi capability and no one to talk to. The BUS also had no WiFi at all!! That’s the only reason I went with this company! The seats were broken and it smelled bad!

Grazia C.4 January 2019 | Staff: 4 |

Mmakutu M.28 December 2018 | Staff: 3 |

Bus was fine. Staff was ok. The bus arrived late and got to the destination even later.

Denise Z.26 November 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

Seats are not as comfortable. Especially the semi leite could have been better. Staff was very friendly and the blankets comfortable.

Shanelle W.31 October 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

It was a lovely experience. I was comfortable and that made the time pass so quickly. I am definitely sticking with Kaissara.

Benjamin M.12 October 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 4 | 

The bus was freezing cold and the journey took twice as long! Not great.

Tamoya S.12 October 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 2 | 

I missed my stop. The driver came and barely whispered something to the people in the front.
