Great scenes - & scenarios during Ghat sections. Driver was very experienced.

Stopped buses at right places, bus conductor was helpful. Overall bus experience was good but I don't know whether they have every day trips or not?

So that's why I am saying worth giving a try with Govt transports.

Simple Review. Got the car serviced! Checked the scenic route. Got loads of music. Got ready with family to burn the road :)

Roads were good for approximately 75% of the time. It was raining heavily hence great caution was required on the narrow roads of Munnar. Fantastic journey to Munnar.

So far I have travelled in Air India, Qatar and Air Asia. I see no difference between Qatar and Air Asia as both are 5 star service providers. You would enjoy the way in Air Asia. Time, punctuality is also very good. Service is awesome. Very smooth journey.

We were very excited for our travel to Munnar. However, the long journey took a toll on us wasting half of our day. We expected a good AC volvo bus. But is was a ordinary semi-sleeper non- AC bus and it took hell lot of time to reach Munnar. All our excitement had gone by the time we reach Munnar. However, the places in the Munnar rejuvenated us back.

I and my wife visited Munnar for honeymoon during the month of May 2015. I need to say that it was indeed a great experience we had. Our choice of Hotel Saravana was perfect as we found that the hotel delivered the services to our satisfaction. Overall I would say it was fantastic hospitality...more »
