Recommended for traveling overnight! We even got a vegetarian meal! We had seats all the way in the back downstairs, very comfy and everything worked (usb charger, tv). It was very hot and moist during the night. Every once and a while it seemed they turned on the aircon and then it was freezing.
Our experience with Tepsa was horrible. To start, the bus was 2 hrs late. The bus driver drove 100 down the road and got pulled over by the police , he was also going 80-95 around all the bends on the hill. Trucks coming in the oposit ditection kept honking because our drive was always in the other lane on the high hill.
The movies played at a very high volume and when asked by multiple passengers to turn the volume down, he did not. When the movie finished, the opening scene would play over and over for about a half an hour because the guy responsible was talking with the drive.
This was not en enjoyable experience.
The service was smooth and we quite enjoy using Cruz del Sur around Peru. However, the bus did not match what we booked online. They said we would have XL seats and we found them to be no different from the previous seats we had in other trips with CDS. There was also no USB ports, which we had in previous trips.
