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.

Good connectivity and flight was on time. BIAL is one of the best airports in the country considering the trip duration (45-50 mins) in-flight service (food and beverages) was limited.

Munnar is a place which has season throughout the year. If you need to relax with your family with few sightseeing the destinations is a right choice. The tea estates viewpoint is awesome once you reach out. Travel by bus can make you see through all the tea estate plants.
