I travelled to Munnar by bus on April 1st by SRS Travels. No problem with the pick-up time, but destination is horrible. As per SRS travels, they have to reach Munnar 6:30 Am. Due to hilly region we can accept at least one or two hours delay, but on April 2nd we reached Munnar at 11:00 Am! Horrible!. Yes because of hilly region travel time will be more, but at least travels should inform the passenger about this before.

While climbing the hills, they will not allow any passenger to have breakfast also, as for some people vomiting will happen. But reaching the destination at 11:00 Am without having anything from last night is very difficult. That too if we are travelling with children then it is horrible.

Munnar, the beautiful hill station with excellent countryside view in God's own country (Kerala). Spending time during summer is worthwhile. Going with family is added advantage. Kids enjoyed the tea estates sightseeing, Kannan devan tea museum, beautiful explanation. We can see tea processing...more »

A drive from Bangalore to Munnar is a good kick for petrol junkies. I enjoyed it although it was a bit tiring. It gets better and better after Coimbatore.. Once you hit the hills, the climb up is very scenic and pleasure some. Stopping on the way and having Kerala chai while looking at the clouds all around is an experience that cant be described in words.

We took the bus from Bangalore to Allepy. The bus was in very good condition and interiors were good. Blankets and sheets were provided and sleeper seats were comfortable. Service is poor and the helpers are rude. Bus is usually half an hour late and in our case it was more than 2 hours. There are 2 stops in between for 15 minutes each. Carry your own mineral water and food as this runs usually in the night and food at the stops isn't that filling or hygienic.

We had gone to Munnar for a 2 days trip. Searching for a good hotel during the peak season can be a bit difficult. We were pleasantly surprised with Archana Residency. The hotel is on the outskirts of the town, it is conveniently placed away from the din of the main town and still close enough...more »

The journey was fine by train and the place Munnar was awesome greenery all around. The hotel accommodation at Munnar, Hill Station Green Manson Resort was good with all the basic facilities. The climate was cool, nice place for a honeymoon trip. Over all a nice experience.

Have travelled at least 4 times through SRS within Karnataka, never got a reason to complain till date. Not even once! My suggestion to people is to use SRS Service as they are very punctual. Do try and see the service provided by them.
