Nice buses, but a bit cold at night. The ac too strong!

Lewis W.October 21, 2019 | 

Very cold and the bus driver was playing loud music the whole night.

Coral J.October 19, 2019 | 

Very comfortable reclining seats, lovely staff. Wi-Fi doesn't work. Bus was very late but due to road works so not the bus company's fault.

Not so happy, we came 3 hours and 40 minutes to late in Medellin.

Drivers listen to loud music all night, impossible to catch sleep in the front seats, i.e 3 and 4. Less leg room in front seats. It’s outrageous that tickets for the front seats cost the same as elsewhere on the bus.

it is very dangerous that these bus drives let random people on the bus to sell chips and sodas because ny phone and someones wallet was stolen by one of them! This is a company that lets anybody on the bus and lets them jump back out ??? Never again will i put myseñf in that dangerous situation

It was very cold on the bus with the air conditioning. Several passengers and I asked the bus driver to turn down the air and he said that it is automatically controlled and he had no power to change the settings. We could not sleep during the 10-hour ride due to the coldness. Thanks! Dr. David A. Smith

Bus got into Medellin over an hour late. The ticket said that it would arrive at Medellin Norte but it went to Sud. The films that were on throughout the trip were way too loud and I struggled to sleep.
