Seats were comfortable and reclined to a good degree, making sleeping comfortable. The bus temperature was a little too warm

Superciva Bus can be a good experience but 2 hours late departure and 5 hours late arrival was not okay. Also, it said in the booking no other stopps but we stopped in Ica and Nazca. But at least I arrived in one piece
