You can opt this bus if you like travelling. You actually don't feel strain in travelling. Every 4-5 hr they will give a break. They had their own hotel in some where outskirts of Bangalore and it was very well-maintained. The TV is very good and every seat has a separate speaker.

Satisfaction is merely important when we travel to temples. My overall travel experience was awesome and great. I would love to come once again with my family. My family had a very good experience and travel by bus was too good.

Redbus.in service is good and I had no issues with it. This review is about the Almadeena Travels. Though I had KSRTC bus available for lesser price. I booked Almadeena Travels from Bangalore to Shirdi and return, only because its boarding point is nearer to my home and I had some luggage. But that's the mistake I have done. Just 1 hr before departure time, I got a call from Almadeena saying "as per your reporting time you need to be present so and so boarding place" and I felt terrible otherwise service was good.

We travelled in SpiceJet from Bangalore to Mumbai. From Mumbai we took a cab to Shirdi.
Be sure you book the cab which is in good condition, as we suffered a lot with the cab. Distance from Mumbai to Shirdi was far. Better choose the shortest distance. It will take nearly 5 hrs from Mumbai to Shirdi by road.
