Comfy, nice operators/drivers and a good service all round. Toilet smell did make its way through the bus a little.

We found the bus to be very comfortable, the driver was cautious (not always the case in Peru in our experience), and the lunch stop was great.

The bus didn’t turn up to the dropped pin given on the app. I had to get the overnight bus and extend my stay in Cusco.

According to customer reviews, the bus service was punctual. However, passengers complained about the extreme cold on board, which made sleeping difficult for everyone. Additionally, there were reports of delays with a nearly 2-hour delay upon arrival in Puno.

The bus was freezing cold during the night and we arrived to Puno with almost 2 hours delay

Laura M.August 26, 2022

Punctuality was good. We were burning with the heather in front of the bus. Fortunately, the bus had empty chairs on the back and we were able to switch. Nobody was around to help us.
