Cruz del Sur Arequipa Cusco recent customer reviews
We enjoyed the space and the confort. It arrived more than an hour late which seems a lot.
No ventilation In the bus until 2-3:00 AM. First time in these buses. On the top we need to reserve in front (1,2,3 or 4) or in front of the stairs (otherwise not enough spaces).
Usually good but the driver should be made aware of the temperature and should be adjusted when too hot/cold
Customers have expressed dissatisfaction with the service, mentioning that it was too hot and staff were rude. Additionally, there were complaints about broken chairs, a smell of gas throughout the ride, difficulty breathing due to heat, and even boiling water bottles. These issues seem to be consistent across multiple reviews.
Excluciva Arequipa Cusco recent customer reviews
My chair was broke coudlt sit normally when I wanted. Cpuld manage that but the chair was falling apart. There was a smell of gas for the whole ride and i could barley breath. And it was so hot my water bottle boiled.
Bus left at 20:30 instead of 21:10 I just made it by a minute. On board we saw the safety video I guess more than 10 times because it wasn't shut off. Then after an hour the k 't I let didn't work and everything smelled like urine. It was a horrible ride... Never taking this company again
This was my 2nd Excluciva experience and unfortunately both were poor. The 2nd bus left on time but then stayed stationary for around an hour at some random place? On both buses the communication between staff and passengers was none existent. I was at the toilet when the snacks were handed out so missed out on any. The staff member could not be contacted in any way. The bottom deck was boiling and I couldn't get any water. This wasnt too bad but I tried to knock on the door and use the staff contact buttons above the seats, no one came. If there had been a serious issue then no-one would have been able to help as they couldn't be contacted! As a result of the high temperature i got no sleep on the nightbus. I used Cruz Del Sur for one trip and have to say the overall experience was more organised and professional.
According to customer reviews, there are mixed opinions about the comfort of the seats. Some customers found them shockingly comfortable, while others had difficulties sleeping during overnight rides. However, it's worth noting that seat number 6 should be avoided as it has a heater underneath that can make the seat extremely hot and cause overheating issues for personal belongings such as laptops and cameras. Additionally, some customers mentioned being disturbed by movies playing during their journey.
Oltursa Arequipa Cusco recent customer reviews
Seats are relatively comfortable and bus left on time. Lights were turned off immediately after departure even though it was only 8pm. A vent or similar was located directly underneath my seat, which emitted very hot air, making the journey extremely uncomfortable
DO NOT book seat number 6. Underneath the seat is a heater which makes the seat extremely hot. I had my bag beneath my legs and both my laptop and camera got extremely overheated as a result.
Shocking comfortable seats. The overnight ride was a little rough, since it was difficult to sleep
