Great service and comfort. Just a bit late.

Tim B.January 10, 2020 | 

WiFi no sirve nada, demasiado paradas para un bus "directo".

Natalie D.December 8, 2019 | 

Comfortable and fairly timely. Requested veg meal but they gave me meat.

Vidmantas L.November 23, 2019 | 

Nothing spectacular

Judith W.October 26, 2019 | 

It's a very comfortable bus and the seats are great, comfy and spacious. The bus attandent was friendly, the ride calm. The Staff in Arequipa was unfriendly and rude.

Caroline R.October 26, 2019 | 

Good service comfortable seatd

Zeev S.October 14, 2019 | 

Because of the late I missed the next bus (of your company, even than the stuff told me it will wate)

Sebastian P.October 11, 2019 | 

Comfortable seats but entertainment didn't work, no usb plugs and checking in at arequipa was confusing

Sarka V.October 2, 2019 | 

Not very comfortable, noisy, movie out loud at midnight wasn't pleasant.

Samuel B.September 26, 2019 | 

Very late, due to being held up at a police control for an hour. Uncomfortable for someone with long legs. It is the economy option I guess

Erez P.August 3, 2019 | 

Great overall besides the delay

Ashleigh S.July 9, 2019 | 

Budget bus - okay for short distances but wouldn’t recommend for a long trip

Pascalle K.June 21, 2019 | 

When buying the ticket it said I would arrive in Lima at 12 at night. I arrived at 3 in the night! We stopped somewhere for over 2 hours so the driver could do a nap. Next time it would be good to change drivers, so the people can get to the place in time.

Suzanne Sally Dassis F.June 19, 2019 | 

The food and 180 degree bed seats were excellent

Josef G.April 29, 2019 | 

Bus way too hot. Sticky air. Movie ran 2 times the same

Colleen C.March 29, 2019 | 

Comfortable seats, professional staff and service.

Rachael B.March 5, 2019 | 

Great company. Would definitely use again. Amazing customer service which is rare to see in Peru. Our atttendant was amazing!

Diana M.March 2, 2019 | 

Really good company,nice service, comfortable seats

Lena T.November 8, 2018 | 

We ordered vegetarian food in advance and got chicken for dinner. That was very disappointing

Aila N.October 1, 2018 | 

The violent and grazy DVDs shouting very loud 5-6 hours during the journey were awfull...no chance to avoid seeing or hearing them.

Anna D.August 20, 2018 | 

The toilet was a bit messy, otherwise all was fine

Romy L.July 7, 2018 | 

Excellent company Our 16h30 bus ride from Arequipa to Lima passed by really fast as we were able to sleep most of the time! Seats are super comfortable and snacks are good. Really enjoyed the ride and would totally recommend!

Jacob R.June 13, 2018 | 

I booked a window seat, but was given an aisle seat with no option to change. Movies played incessantly, with overly loud volume pumped through the entire cabin with no option to turn down or off. Seats were small and less comfortable than Econociva seats. Overall negative experience, but still worth the low price I paid (hence 2 stars rather than 1)

Cornelia S.June 9, 2018 | 

Very confortable

Robert F.June 4, 2018 | 

A smooth ride. They provide modest snacks along the way, and entertainment. However, even if the website, and bus company advertise WiFi, doesn't mean that they will give you the password.

Shannan P.April 9, 2018 | 

Great food, on time and friendly staff

Shirley G.December 19, 2017 | 

after taking many buses over south America recently I rate tepsa the best, would travel on them again and recommend to friends and family

Deyan D.November 27, 2017 | 

Comfortable and safe, great service.

William D.September 25, 2017 | 

Good. But no wifi.
