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.

The train's timing was perfect for my family. It was on time. We had booked AC 3 tier. The coach was clean. Bathrooms had water. The linen was clean. Although we were carrying our food, my husband ordered a non-veg meal, which was served to him in due time. The food was average, so itís better to pack your food from home, hotel or station. The train arrived on time in Varanasi.

Reserved non AC sleeper compartments are occupied by many passengers (without any reservation) from early morning who sits everywhere and starts talking among themselves in loud voice. There is no control to check the inflow. The widows did not close properly thus cold breeze coming in throughout the night made the journey more uncomfortable.

Vibhuti Express is by far the best train one can avail to reach Varanasi. We travelled in 3 AC. The train was on time (very surprised) as most of the trains in India run behind schedule. Its timings are suitable i.e. it departs Howrah at 8 pm and reaches Varanasi at 9.30 am. The journey was very comfortable.
