we changed bus in the middle of the journey (near the border) no one told us anything, there was no ac on the bus
Bus left on time and all seemed well Seats were very uncomfortable and the aircon and even fans hardly ever worked so even though it was cold outside it was hot and stuffy inside. There was no indication to us that we would have to swap busses in the middle of nowhere and our luggage was thrown out on the ground. This 2nd Bus absolutely stank and the seats were broken, there was also no aircon at all for these next 5 hours. After 5 minutes we stopped again and had to take all our luggage off of the bus. The 2nd part of the trip the driver was very aggressive and did not know how to not press a horn even when travelling through small towns
Decent bus. I found it a pity that we spend nearly two hours at the duty-free zone between Chili and Bolivia
Bus was 4 hours late to Uyuni, major hold up at the border for some reason. Also, buses are pretty old and uncomfortable especially the one you change onto for the Bolivia leg of the trip
The bus broke after about 2 houres of ride, and in the end we had to be taken by some truck to the border. It was about 3 houres delay.
The Good Left on time, arrived on time The Bad Buses used were old and decrepit and the bus from the Chilean border to Uyuni was dirty.
The bus got to the "station" or gate on time. Staff was helpful and kind. Chilean customs control went okay, but it took us ages to leave Avaroa, the Bolivian side.. something wrong with the passengers list or their IDs, which resulted in a 1.5-hour delay.. we got to Uyuni at 4:10pm, not 2:30pm as expected. I had to hire a transfer to my hotel in Colchani since the van provided by the hotel had already left :(
