Excellent service. Highly recommend. Only thing I would suggest is cleaning the windows from the inside more often. It was hard to take photos due to smudges from previous passengers. Other than that, perfect service
This was completely different than my last experience with Superciva. The bus was much more luxurious, no loud music, comfortable seats (3 across), clean bathroom, and light snack suitable for vegetarians. Had there been wifi, it would have been perfect.
We missed our itinerary in Puno (our only day in puno) and we have to head out to Arequipa tonight. The bus was supposed to get to puno from Cusco at 1430 but they made it at 1630. Our tour started at 1600 and we had to cancel with no refunds.
Better than I expected. The staff was attentive and polite. The seat was quite comfortable. The only thing I wish is to have food as the bus arrived much later than lunch time and the break was too short to grab some food.
The bus arrived 1h late, therefore we missed our trip, and had to buy new tickets, because we weren't allowed to modify our return ticket anymore. The new ticket cost us significantly more than the previous. Please update your schedules to make it more realistic.
The Cruz del Sur bus was comfortable but we were supposed to arrive at 4.30am and did not arrive until 8.10am meaning we had to cancel the trip we had booked. Can’t understand why the bus was almost 4 hour late and we weren’t given any reason.
Very disappointed by this travel: we haven’t been informed by the crew about the 3h of delay, didn’t receive any water for compensation, and the smell coming from the toilets was contaminating all the back of the bus. Nice to be sitting in the last raws... we bought two sits in the same time a week in advance and were separated in the bus. A lot to improve!
The chairs were much more comfortable than i expected, however most of the riders spoke English and none of the staff knew any. We were an hour late to our destination and took a stop for no reason with only one and a half hours left on the ride. And the bathroom was disgusting on the bus and no toilet paper. Our screens for tv also didn’t work. The food was gross.
Bus didn't start. Only after 1,5 hours of trying did we move onto another bus. The bus was an upgrade, but during trying there was no communication. The bus driver did not make up time and we arrived 2,5 hours late.
Bus was nice and comfortabele. Staff otherwise friendly.
