DISHONEST COMPANY. Possessions stolen from underneath the bus sometime during transit. Would never ride with them again, not worth the low cost as that money will now have to be spent replacing stolen items.

Anna M.December 24, 2018 | Staff: 3 | 

Disappointing. Long delay on arrival felt to be predictable due to road conditions and route. Windows are not air conditioning! Toilet needs maintenance.

Jacob S.December 6, 2018 | Staff: 1 | 

Check in at station was easy. Seats were terrible. We got stuck near the back and could feel every single rattle and bump of the engine and road. Drivers were pretty jerky on the brakes. Seat tables did not stay up and I almost spilled hot tea on my lap. Bus was advertised as having wifi, there was no wifi. Snack was dry bed and meat, hardly worth it. Seats on this bus are smaller (shorter and narrower) than other long distance busses I have taken in Peru.

Charles O.December 1, 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

The quality of the bus and ride and staff was exceptional but being two hours late meant I missed my train leaving Poroy to Agua Calientes

Erik L.November 18, 2018 | Staff: 2 | 

The staff didnt ask ud for drinks, like she did with the rest of the passengers.

Lorin R.November 17, 2018 | Staff: 2 | 

The man next to me was rather large, and took half of my seat. Therefore I was cramped between the window and this guy and I haven't been comfortable once

Stephen L.October 17, 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 4 | 

Very cheap and relatively comfortable for the price. Journey took longer than timetabled.

Yoav A.September 29, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 4 | 

very good

Ian C.September 15, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 4 | 

Again no wifi, no pillow for a 10 hour trip and the bus was 2 hour late

Hiral P.September 5, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Very comfortable and safe. Felt like I was going on a plane

Leana V.August 2, 2018 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 5 | 

The lounge was great and staff very friendly. However, the bus was extremely hot, with heating turned up and was informed it can't be turned down otherwise other areas will be colder. We had to open a window to get some fresh air. The bus broke down and there was a 3 hour delay.

Lucy T.July 17, 2018 | Staff: 2 | 

Coach smelt bad and was bumpy. The coach was an hour and a half late. Seats incomfortable and the entertainment cut out half way so we just heard background noise for the entire journey

Joshua B.May 17, 2018 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 3 | 

Bus was about an hour late arriving at destination.

Eric Y.May 14, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 3 | 

Staff was good but difficult to understand sometimes, the bus left the station 15 mins late but arrived to Cusco 15 mins early. During the trip they played a movie and it was too loud. I couldn’t even hear my own music. They had several stops along the way before arriving to Cusco which were scary cause they were overnight.

Rosemary J.May 11, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

The bus driver tried to leave my boyfriend behind when he jumped out at a stop to go to the toilet. Despite being told he had 5 minutes the bus driver left after 1 and I had to yell at him to wait which he really didn’t want to do. He really did leave behind 2 other people who then had to take a taxi to catch up which made everyone late.

Morgane K.April 28, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Terrible journey. Very hot then at 3am the radiators burst leaking boiling hot green chemical water everywhere. Fumes were unbearable and our feet were burnt because of the water flowing through the bus. We got off for only 10 minutes before the bus driver told us to get back on despite the flood of boiling green water still being on the bus. Windows were all shut so the chemical fumes still filled the bus. When we got off (late arrival) our clothes and hair stank, and to top it off the sticky green water had leaked into the hold so our luggage was covered and our clothes stained. No compensation or apology given.

Derek R.April 25, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 4 | 

We stayed behind the driver in the VIP area on the main floor. The seats reclined Far and were comfortable. The meal was surprisingly decent and surpassed my (low) expectations. Pasta with chunks of beef, a vegetable quiche and a little baked dish. Watched a movie in Spanish with English subtitles.

Tymoteusz M.April 16, 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 4 | 

I would improve the way a passengers pilots refers.

Te Honiana A.April 13, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

For a 12 hour bus ride it was relatively painless.

Larry H.April 12, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Drivers that put safety above all. Check in was very efficient and the bus leaves on time.

Jaclyn C.April 9, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Not sure what happened, but I purchased econociva and ended up in superciva seats. They were so comfortable, I slept so hard for 10 hours. The bus left on time, but was two hours late into Cusco, which was fine by me because it put me in town by 630 as opposed to 430.

Miia S.February 19, 2018 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 3 | 

Good seats

Ksenia S.December 31, 2017 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 5 | 

11 hour travel without a single spot is a challenge

Emma B.December 30, 2017 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 3 | 

Left Arequipa on time. We were told by the chap at the counter that we'd stop in Juliaca for 30 minutes to have lunch... Never happened. We stopped for just five minutes and I was lucky to be able to grab some meagre sandwiches. Other stops along the way were brief toilet stops. We arrived into Cusco almost one hour late.

Karel L.December 8, 2017 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 4 | 

Cant say much about the food because I already ate before getting there. Seats are comfortable, the drive is rather smooth, but arrived 45 minutes late to my destination.

Michael B.October 27, 2017 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 2 | 

The staff at Arequipa were rude and bored. The bus was old and windows shaking very noisily. The toilet was disgusting and stank. The flush mechanism hardly worked and when it did it splurted faeces and urine vertically out the toilet, splashing my legs. A man stood and talked for nearly two hours at the start of the journey, preaching about something!!? And my bag STUNK of fish after being in the under-bus storage. Not happy at all.

Alisa B.August 7, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

I travelled through Peru a lot (lived there for a year) and with many different bus companies. I mainly made good experiences, with a few inconveniences in between. But my travel with Econociva yesterday from Arequipa to Cusco was the worst ever and I am really shocked by how unprofessionally this bus agency acts. Although it should be a DIRECT bus via Juliaca to Cusco, the bus driver stopped at every corner and little villages to let people get on the bus- just for to sell the free seats of course. Because of that, we demorated a lot and even when passengers told him this was a direct bus, he didn't stop this. Bus toilet was a mess, bus toilets are never in the best condition but this was just too bad. Staff was extremely unfriendly, have never made such a bad experience with other companies. Will definitely never choose CIVA again.

Simon V.July 14, 2017 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 2 | 

Blankets aren't big enough. No English instructions anywhere. Air conditioning turned off so bus was smelly and cold.

Michel L.July 10, 2017 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 3 | 

Hostess can be more customer oriented.

Garry W.June 20, 2017 | Timeliness: 4 | Staff: 4 | 

Why do the staff put on movies but then turn them off before they finish
