The staff was not friendly helping to print out the ticket.

Since we crossed the Jama Border, a short briefing about the altitude and it's dangers would have been appreciated. Some people fainted at the border because no one told them to eat light and drink much. That's kind of unprofessional to me.

Bus man was very nice. Very happy and polite towards me even tho I dont speak Spanish. Was even snacks 3 times during the trip. Stopped quickly at a volcano to take picture which was nice of them

Our bus broke down 90 minutes after leaving Salta. We then did not move for nearly 6 hours whilst the drivers tried to fix the problem. In the end Pullman sent another bus but we did not arrive in San Pedro until 23.00 am 8 hour delay. We needed a replacement bus earlier.

Great service. The only reason we were late into San Pedro de Atacama was due to a passenger getting held up being processed by Customs etc at the Argentine /Chile border.

David Anthony F.July 18, 2019 | 

Everything was fine up to the border, where we were supposed to swap passengers with a bus coming up from San Pedro, which would then return to San Pedro. But that bus arrived at the border three hours late, so we had a very long, very cold wait up at 4,200 meters. Moreover, its bathrooms were broken.

Good service. Friendly staff.

Chauffeur a la conduite irréprochable . Staff très sympa. 3 "repas" nous ont été servis pendant le trajet. Toilettes immondes, pas de papier et pas d'eau. Sièges abîmés et pas de place pour les pieds au premier rang à l'étage. Pare brise fissuré +++

Really good

Matthew V.December 18, 2017 | 

Bus was delayed by 18 hours. Staff provided little information. Will not use the service again

Erwin M.November 12, 2017 | 

The Belt snapped AND the battery went flat: 3,5 hours delay. No reserve battery on board. Staff was great though.

Peter S.September 10, 2017 | 

Bus was nice and clean, food was okay, staff were not very friendly but nice enough.

Martti W.May 23, 2017 | 

The bus got returned at the border, we headed back to Salta. The staff did the best they could, it was not their fault that the border got closed. In any case, we never reached our destination and look for reimbursement now.

Michael G.May 9, 2017 | 

Didn't even get the bus! It was cancelled as the staff were on strike and I wasn't told

Michael F.April 19, 2017 |
