I took an overnight bus with my boyfriend. We left nearly 45 minutes late. My seat was right beside the heater or just some part that got EXTREMELY hot- the ride was stifling and made it impossible to sleep. We had to open a window. Only after several hours was the air turned on to help circulate. The bathroom was also filthy and smelled horrible.
Thank you for the opportunity to comment. We did not have a restful evening. We paid for the semi-cama seats (160 degrees) so that we could get comfortable. Sadly 1 of our chairs did not work... every time you push it down, it just came back up. They kept a night light on the whole trip... so we all had to sleep with blankets over our heads (why?). I hope you are able to look into this matter for us. Warm Regards, Louise
Toilets disgusting. Driver to Puerto Maldonado nearly caused several accidents. No toilet paper. Excluciva didn't respond to my emails about vegetarian meals and we were given chicken sandwiches. On the trip back to Cusco there were not many movie and the movies were the worst movies ever made. We found it to be not what the website advertised.
