This experience is good, also there is no problem in such journeys, because holidayiq reviews helped us a lot. Sometimes, I felt very bad for travelling in train because I don't like the train journey but this time the journey was good as I have all the things well-planned and managed.
As, I said train condition was so like broken toilet seats and sometimes no water. Which is most important and lastly the Sulabhsauchalya at Jaipur Station was in very bad condition , very dirty toilet like they had not been cleaned from ages and broken taps and long lines. Even foreign tourists were standing in the line, shameful.
RSRTC which means Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation is fabulous and is the best bus service provider in India. The driver was good at driving and conductor was so funny. He was like a friend and it was a pleasant day of Sunday so I enjoyed the trip. The scenery around the great NH-8 was very beautiful and was like out of world.
Train is very comfortable as it starts the same day and reaches Kota by 11 roughly. So it becomes ideal for official visits. The only problem is that the train almost always reaches late by (around 30 min to 60 min), which if corrected is a very good train to opt for this route.
