I travelled to Varanasi by vibhuti express. The journey was pleasant. The housekeeping staff of the railways was very good. They cleaned the compartment every half an hour with the toilet also. Very good journey. I travelled by sleeper class. My co-passengers was nice and good.

I visited Varanasi just to have the idea of holy city and its splendid ghats which are really known worldwide. The boat trip on the ganges to visit the ghats and seeing the arati is really amazing. Each ghat tells a different story. The temples and the mandir is also beautiful

what an experience in this train I travelled in A/C 3rd tyre, the train service was very good and vendors were very friendly, and one of the best things in this train are toilets were very neat and clean. The bed-sheet which was given in the train was very pleasant and we have a great experience in the train.

We are in A/C two tier completely unprotected no rpf and during night time ticketless passengers block the toilet passage and open the coach door which is scary. There was no food available in the train whole night hawkers are in the coach TTE is useless and it is very scary journey if you travel with lady as co passenger.

I will always prefer Upper India Express to visit Varanasi and I travelled in sleeper class.

PROS:

1) The train go through Gaya which is very nice place for site viewing through trains.

2) The train goes through many caves which makes the journey really interesting.

3) The train rarely goes out of time.

4) Seats were in good conditions.

5) Hawkers were coming fluently.

CONS:

1) No Pantry Car

2) Unclean toilet.

Average experience, no pantry. Toilets were clean and Housekeeping boys were active. The journey of around fourteen hours, so Benaras is overnight journey. The train usually runs late and food is a problem en route. If you are travelling from Howrah pack your food from their and have breakfast in the hotel, in between have snacks.
