Just that it was a hill journey, still the bus was comfortable, we were able to enjoy the scenic beauty during the travel. After the hilly roads, it was more comfortable. Overall, a good trip. The bus was on time, some travellers had some issues with the driver but personally I was comfortable with this bus and its driver! The helper was very a nice person too! More »
