Fabulous it was!! Real fun, with amazing experiences. Exploring new places is always fun to me. Adding memories is what I call that tour to. Damn awesome. Need to go once more. If there can be one more added trip to south. Road trip. Or long- drive that too with my girl. That's what I really want to do.
The schedules as printed are quite frequent every 15-20 minutes in main routes. But unable to maintain the timings due to chaotic traffic. The staff behavior is very rough. Conductor sits in his place and you have to get the ticket even when jam packed during peak hours. But it is not so at all times. The buses are reasonably well-maintained with not many break downs.
