We used this service from the Lima airport to our hotel in Miraflores. We arrived early and actually had to wait for the counter to open for tickets. It was fast and cheap. Bus was clean. We took a cab back to the airport as I was worried about how true to the schedule the busses would be. I would recommend this service if you are looking for an affordable option back and forth.

The Airport Express Lima counter is easy to find after leaving baggage claim, and service there was excellent, conducted in fluent English. The one way fare to Miraflores was only 25 PEN (about $7); credit cards were accepted. It felt safe. A guide on board the bus made sure that we got off at the correct stop, and provided directions to our hotel which was only a block away.

There are some minor drawbacks of this service, however. Buses leave only once per hour, so you'll likely need to wait. The circuitous path to where you meet the bus is not well marked and felt a bit isolated. We had to load our own luggage onto the bus. The bus was clean but did not smell fresh. And for two passengers, the fare was 50 PEN, exactly the fare for the licensed taxi that later took us back to the airport (although that very early morning trip may have been unusually economical because of the absence of traffic at that time of day.)

I was a little worried to make the last bus at midnight when my flight arrived in Lima at 11:00pm, but customs was very quick. Even considering how busy the airport was with all the teams arriving for the Pan-American games. Customs took no more than 20 minutes.

The counter was easy to spot and Anita Castillo was so helpful and sweet! She made sure to answer all my questions, she explained to me clearly where to find the bus, and some other helpful information. Thank you, Anita!

The bus dropped me off two blocks from my hotel and they told me exactly where to go and how far to walk. It exceeded expectations and for $8 USD, it was a great value as well 👍

I was hesitant about our airport transfer and we were arriving into Lima quite late but I asked around and researched prior to the trip and got the best feedback for Airport Express Lima so I went for it. So glad we did! The kiosk to check in is right outside of baggage claim. They give you a map and highlight your stop for you meanwhile answering any questions. The buses are big, clean and air-conditioned. You can't beat the price! Prior to the stops, one of the workers goes over his list to ensure everyone knows where they are going. We booked roundtrip so days later we stood at the designated stop and they were right on time for our pickup and return back to the airport. Just out of curiosity, I asked a random "taxi" driver at the airport for pricing one-way to San Isidro and was quoted $50. We paid $15 roundtrip thru Airport Express- it was a no brainer for us and such an easy process. I booked it all online.

As an organised individual, I booked my ticket for the bus to downtown Lima online, before I left for South America.

When you come through arrivals at the airport, it isn't apparent where you actually catch the bus. Eventually, after asking for help, I was directed to leave the terminal building and cross to the other side of the hotel opposite, where the coach parking is.

When I went to board the bus, the ticket inspector told me that I had not bought the correct ticket and had to pay an extra 13 soles. According to him, there are different prices for visitors and for locals, and I had purchased a ticket for Peruvian nationals, using the website made for Peruvian nationals to use. What puzzles me is that there was no information on the website indicating this when I booked. I also speak no Spanish and the website I used was fully presented in English. If I was using the wrong website, as he alleged, and it was intended for Peruvian nationals (where the official language is Spanish) then why was this website presented in English? Being a wary individual, I was pretty certain I was being scammed, but on contact with the oganiser, it seems there are different pricing structures and this is mandated by the airport owners.

After boarding the bus, it never stopped at all of the stops listed on the website and seemed to be providing a personal drop off service for each passenger. Whilst this is good, and I had told the ticket inspector that I was getting off at Larcomar (a listed stop) to meet a tour, the bus never stopped at Larcomar. I had to complain, at which point the bus turned around and headed back towards the stop which had been missed. This, however, resulted in me being quite late for the tour I had booked. Had the bus simply stopped at the advertised stops according to their timetable, then I would have had plenty of time.

If i ever return to Peru then I will not be using this service and I would not recommend anyone to. Whilst a taxi may be more expensive, I would suggest it is more reliable and trustworthy than this shambolic service. I have flown to many airports across the world and used many different forms of public transport to get myself to my final destination, but have never experienced incompetence at this level!

I think this service is really what was needed at the Lima airport. Safe transport to the city center was expensive and uncertain until this alternative arrived. It takes 15 minutes longer than a taxi but travel is very safe and comfortable. As far as I know there is no limit to baggage and there is free wifi in every bus.

I recently landed in Lima from South Africa, having little to no comprehension of Spanish I was a little apprehensive about how I would get to my hotel in miraflores.

After doing some research online I stumbled across "airport express lima" and duly booked a ticket online.

When I arrived in Lima, their counter was easily to locate, the staff members were very friendly and spoke English well.

In addition to showing me to the bus, they also printed out a map for me so that I could easily locate my hotel from the closest drop off point.

The busses are very modern (comfortable seating, wifi and the inclusion of USB charging ports was a nice touch)

Before reaching the applicable drop off point I was reminded by name that i needed to disembark and once off the bus, the staff member clearly explained to me how to reach my hotel.

Fantastic service all round from start to finish!!
