Nazca to Cusco by bus

Has anyone taken the bus from Nazca to Cusco? Is there a way to see the bus schedule for that bus route? Is it 14 hours or longer? What is the bus companies name.

We took Cruz del Sur (www.cruzdelsur.com.pe) and it took about 14 hours (it may take more with other companies that use older buses or make more stops on the way). They have two daily buses. One leaves around 3 pm, the other around 9 pm.

Did you feel safe on the night bus? I read in the Lonely Plane book that there are night robberies on the night buses. was it uncomfortable to sleep? were you tired after the bus ride?

We (in our 50s) felt as safe as can be, just a little tired after 14 hours. Cruz del Sur ist one of the best companies in Peru, a little more expensive than others, but worth it.

We made reservations one day ahead (actually asked our hotel in Lima, and the tickets were delivered - very convenient !).

Seats are assigned (from the start in Lima, but we jumped on the bus in Nazca). It was a very quiet and "civilized" ride.

We particularly enjoyed the daylight part (about 5-11 am) when it was actually possible to see the beautiful mountain scenery and small villages.
