We hired a cab. The journey was really comfortable. There were many refreshment stalls. It was quite relaxing. I think the best time to start the journey is at the morning time. Then we visited church, and Lulu Mall. Because we stayed for a day so we couldn\'t travel much. But it was really a very wonderful trip.

The train journey to Kerala from Bangalore is always good and on time. Most of the trains start during night and suitable for working people. Also multiple choices will be available to travel to Kerala. The service was too good and too many vendors to provide various food and varieties. More »

Flight was not at all good. There was no place to seat comfortably. It was very congested and while landing it had come technical problems due to which we had to land in Coimbatore and we were delayed by 2 hrs from our schedule. Airlines didn\'t bother to serve some complimentary food either, as we passengers were thirsty and hungry.
Wont prefer this airline in future More »

The KSRTC as everybody know is the best in INDIA. We had booked 2 sleeper berths and it was a AC bus .The berths were comfortable and and the hotels where they stopped for dinner was good. Since journey duration is ten hours, people travelling from Bangalore to Kochi are advised to go for a sleeper. Overall it was a safe and comfortable journey. More »

It was a very nice experience. They provided biscuits, blanket and water. It was an AC bus with clean sheet and I could sleep peacefully.
