We had a good time. The train was good and it was on time; we had a good time indeed. The service inside the train was also very good, and it was also pretty clean. I had a wonderful time there. Fully enjoyed a lot. The journey was really hassle free.

Though an exciting drive is guaranteed, but it can be a difficult drive for people with travel sickness. They may have to frequently stop if they experience nausea and vomiting. Ask the driver to go slow. Travel after a light meal, those with travel sickness should take medication. Otherwise an enjoyable and picturesque drive.

It was a very good experience, I had all together. Outer look of the bus is amazing. You feel good when you travel with them. But the bus drivers are not so polite enough enough to communicate with them. Over all it was a good experience. Given a chance I would go again. and I recommend this to all travellers as well.

I travelled with my friends and left Bangalore to Munnar by train and reached Coimbatore. Stayed in a friendís house refreshed and from Coimbatore we went by a hired car. It was a good experience. Train journey was average as we could get tickets only in a sleeper compartment but within the company of friends everything is enjoyable.

Normally I am a frequent traveller. I have been visiting so many places for business meeting. If I compare with that experience the service is average. There is entertainment. Bus operator did not provide the services as mentioned at the time of bus booking.
