One of the worst bus experiences ever. Never take these private buses. No professionalism, no responsibility, rude staff, threatening to cancel tickets and leave you stranded, even if you arrived 2 hours early on their request! Multiple private bus bookings go through the same bus, including Himachal Tourist Volvo bus and Cool Himachal Travels. Different people paid different ticket prices

From Delhi to Manali, boarding time was 6:45, they called and asked us to arrive 20 minutes early, but the bus arrived at 8 Pm! They stopped a long time for dinner at a random dhaba on the way, and arrival was supposed to be before 9 Am, but it arrived in Manali at noon after a long stop at another unnecessarily long rest stop at 9 Am. On the way, they attempted to move a mother with a small child away form the child to a different seat just to adjust for overbooking. A/c also dripped onto the seat, blankets had holes in them.

Even worse was the Manali to Delhi travel. We booked a 6:30 Pm bus. They called 4 times to tell us the bus time was pre-poned to 5 Pm, then at 4:30 as we were just getting food, staff called and demanded that we arrive at once or the bus would leave. When we said this is not fair and we had booked a 6:30 Pm bus and already this was too early, they said "fine, your tickets are cancelled then" and we had to fight, and rush to the Bus Stop to board, into seats that were different than what we booked. Just 10 minutes into the journey, the bus stopped for 30 minutes to load random cargo that belonged to none of the passengers!

The travellers should always prefer the AC bus depending on the availability. It's good that one should board the bus in the evening around 5:00 pm so that he/she reaches by the time the sun rises. I found Heera Himanchal good and can be my next times choice too.

I had a comfortable journey while travelling to Manali and I enjoyed at the halts where it stopped. Arrangement in the bus was up to the expectation. Locations for halting were nice, economic, safe and had good surrounding.

I did not have a good experience while returning back. Kalpana Travellers did not seem to be a good choice since no water got provided, place for night dinner halt was not nice.

Please be careful while choosing the right traveller and always carry the required amount of luggage specially clothing as per weather condition.

The volvo bus by which I travelled was good. I really liked it a lot. The bus was really comfortable and we hada great journey. It was a smooth travel overall. The AC was good. While travelling from and to Delhi to Manali, they had provided enough rest stops. Volvo from Manali to Delhi was not semi sleeper, it had only reclining push back seat and AC.(Half point deducted for this). Same Manali to Delhi Volvo have only one charging point near driver seat! There was no individual charging point at seat, as well. I have deducted ONE POINT for their pick up point (Majnu Ka Tila) which is a very isolated area. They had not provided any basic shelter for the passengers waiting for their bus. All passengers had to wait for the bus in the open. I faced one of the most horrible cyclones (on 29/05/2014 evening) at Majnu ka Tila area without any shelter, or any protection! I am very thankful to nearby people who offered us shelter, and we survived. During travelling they provided only blanket and one drinking water bottle and a plastic bag in case of vomiting. They didn't provide any pillows, neck rest, or any light breakfast during the journey. However, I am not sure that these amenities are included in the bus fair or not.. But I was expecting neck rest for better journey. Bus Staff is not clear about the sitting arrangement. They changed my seat twice and send me to the back seat and told me that front 6 seats are for Chandigarh passengers!!! I got 25 & 26 No seat for my Delhi to Manali and vise verse journey even though I had booked my tickets on 24/5/14 . And some passengers who booked their tickets after 24/5/14 were allotted front seat.

I did a lot research about the bus operator, then finally decided to board HPTDC bus. Believe me, it was one of the best decision to opt HPTDC bus. The bus quality, staff behaviour was very superior. But was very clean, very comfortable. I did not travel to Manali by private bus operators, that's why I can not comment on their service, but HPTDC provides very fine service in comparison of other Government buses.

If you want to experience amazing travelling, then I will strongly recommend everyone to travel in HPDTC bus.

Resort location was amazing, far better then the hotel/resort available on mall road. Surroundings is very superb, amazing view from the top floor, but ok kind of from ground floor. Resort is located at the top in a very calm environment. One can actually feel the beauty of Manali at this...more »

We took Himachal Pradesh bus service from Kashmeri Gate bus terminal New Delhi. Bus was in a good condition and we booked online ticket from website. Bus was on time,there were 2 halts during the journey. We travelled during night and it was a very cold season that time so we slept all the way.
