Our bus was d parts close to 2 hours after it's scheduled time. No one could tell us a definitive time on when our bus was going to arrive at the terminal for us to board. This caused us to miss our flight to Cusco.
The service was good, but there are a lot of room for improvement.
- Food needs to be improved (oltursa has better food)
- No information of the need to byo headphones was given (we were allowed to borrow a pair from the guy in charge of service 👍)
- Bathroom only offered possibility to do nr 1.
-No blankets were offered
There is no information on the check in procedure. We struggled with this as we do not speak Spanish. We went to one counter who told us to go the VIP section. We stood in a long line in the VIP section to be told that we did not have to check in and we gave them our bags when we boarded the bus. We were also told to wait and board the bus at the gates when called. The gates were not labelled and there were multiple buses in the terminal so we asked a third person where to go after 20 minutes and two check In Counters later. The third staff person pointed out the gate and bus. No mention of the process at booking is made nor is there any clarity at the bus station. This created a frustrating experience for us.
I have written the company. They were 50 minutes late boarding. They were rude and told us at check-in that we no longer has the seats 2-1 and 2-2 that we reserved with explanations that made no sense. When we did sit down there was garbage, the blankets were dirty and there was food on the seat.
There was only one seat left when I made the booking, while in reality the bus was half empty. For the rest Cruz del Sur was good as always, although they seem to think they are in the airplane business instead of bus transport and take that a bit too seriously, like filming all the passengers before boarding... Why?
