For our trip to Shimla we planned on going by bus to make it more exciting trip. So we booked this bus service. It was a nice and clean bus. The bus was big and seats were very comfortable to sleep with reckline. Journey hours were also less than expected. The driver was very good, he was not driving wild. This bus service added more value to our trip to Shimla.

Yeah it was good journey, food quality of train has been improved to the moderate level. It takes almost 12 hours to reach Chandigarh. Then from there, lot of buses are available which go to Shimla frequently. So overall journey was good. It was night journey so could not see any places. But still feels good whatever I could come across. The train staff was good and I enjoyed a lot. Veg food is avail. Just its thali system in lunch as well as dinner. They are giving you 4 chapatis and daal, some gravy and pickle and water too. For almost 100 rs. Dont know if they have increased (you never know its railways) accommodation 3 tier ac I travelled was good, seats were in good condition. So did not get any problem regarding anything. Coach attendant was also there.

Our flight from Lucknow-Delhi on 9 June 2013 was rescheduled just because there were not enough passengers on the flight we booked, we had a connecting flight from Delhi for Chandigarh, so we left early and had to wait for four hours in Delhi to catch our connection. Service on the flight and the service from ground staff was good.
