It was not great as our car was not well-maintained and had some trouble enroute. It was difficult to mend as communicating was tough. Road was nice and driver knows which places to visit so it made more beautiful. I would recommend to take your own car if you are travelling from Bangalore.

It was an AC sleeper bus and I enjoyed travelling. Journey was so comfortable and bus staff were so co-operative. They, provided everything on time like water, food and blanket. I always go by SRS Travels only because they provide best service. I suggest all to take this bus service.

It was the first time I was travelling to Kochi by train as I had a friend to accompany me. We were pretty surprised to find the 2 AC coach virtually empty. Also there are very limited refreshment options as there was no in-house pantry. We had to take the pre-packed meals offered by the vendor. A word of caution to foodies, please carry food from outside or you would be stuck with the limited options.

I headed to Cochin for a holiday trip and was suggested to try this hotel by a friend. Beaumonde - The Fern, the first 5 star hotel in Cochin was apparently known for its great service.

I was quite impressed by the welcome received at the hotel at its spacious and luxurious lounge. I...more »

We preferred three tier AC and went for a business trip. It was very good, comfortable and on-time journey with clean berths and toilets and sleeping accessories. But they are not providing refreshments like food/water. Overall, it was a very good journey.
