Tracey W.January 9, 2019 | Staff: 4 | 

Comfortable trip. No wifi or USB power points

Sharmayne R.January 9, 2019 | Staff: 3 | 

The ticket was easy to sort out. The bus was clean and comfortable. The journey was relatively smooth. It was late to arrive, but that was due to traffic. It could be better signposted in the station.

Stephen C.January 6, 2019 | Staff: 5 | 

Very good service I was very impressed

Andrew B.January 4, 2019 | Staff: 5 | 

International traveller and found Expresso do Sul was a comfortable drive with good seats. Wifi was also pretty good.

Lilly R.January 4, 2019 | Staff: 2 | 

The bus took me to the wrong location/directed me the wrong way. I was told online and when purchasing the ticked and by three employees that the bus would take me to the GRU airport. I was trying to get to the airport not some crowded bus station with zero WiFi capability and no one to talk to. The BUS also had no WiFi at all!! That’s the only reason I went with this company! The seats were broken and it smelled bad!

Grazia C.January 4, 2019 | Staff: 4 | 

Very good transport

Mmakutu M.December 28, 2018 | Staff: 3 |

Denise Z.November 26, 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

Seats are not as comfortable. Especially the semi leite could have been better. Staff was very friendly and the blankets comfortable.

Shanelle W.October 31, 2018 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

It was a lovely experience. I was comfortable and that made the time pass so quickly. I am definitely sticking with Kaissara.

Benjamin M.October 12, 2018 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 4 | 

The bus was freezing cold and the journey took twice as long! Not great.

Tamoya S.October 12, 2018 | Timeliness: 3 | Staff: 2 | 

I missed my stop. The driver came and barely whispered something to the people in the front.

Amazing!!! Comfy seats, large with a lot of leg space (I’m 180cm tall so it’s important). Lovely staff. On time.

Amazing coach

Mulham K.December 23, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 2 | 

The bus was almost 3 hrs late arriving to Sao Pulo. We were supposed to arrive at 5:30 we ended up arriving at 8:15pm I missed my bus trip with my friends which departed São Paulo at 8pm

Carina C.December 18, 2017 | Timeliness: 1 | Staff: 1 | 

Do not use this company. I bought a ticket from Rio to Sao Paulo which was supposed to arrive at SP at 6 pm. I had to take a flight at 9 pm. The bus was late and I lost my flight. Now I can't afford a new plane ticket and have to go back to Uruguay by bus. So I also have to miss 2 days at my job. I would like someone to be responsible for this. It was totally not what I expected. Also the seat I bought was different from what it was actually the bus.

Ekaterina V.December 18, 2017 | Timeliness: 2 | Staff: 4 | 

The trip took 8,5 hours except of 6. It was hot in the bus.

John N.December 16, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

Excellent service. Very comfortable seats with plenty of room to stretch out and reclining the seats did not inconvenience passengers behind.

Lizzy S.December 6, 2017 | Timeliness: 5 | Staff: 5 | 

I would totally recommend it and use it again!
