We were in 3rd AC and we enjoyed a lot, especially my kids were very happy for this long awaited family trip. The tickets were booked by my brother-in-law. Train was few minutes late but we got every thing in train on time like bedding was cleaned and fresh. Temperature was very well-maintained.
Traveling by Rajdhani was awesome. Ya, it would be preferable to book train at least a month prior, though we did it a couple of weeks before and it was waiting. But thankfully till the end we managed to get it confirmed. I am a regular flight person so it was great to travel by train (offcourse everywhere flight doesn't go). Food service was good, train was clean and tidy.
The food available is not too great plus the quality of the bedding provided was not good. The journey by car would be better keeping in view the bad services provided in the train. But with small children it becomes a little tedious to travel by car but had the trains been cleaner and neater the journey would have been far better.
I took a non AC bus and it was great. The journey was very comfortable and service was superb. It was like a journey to heaven. The only advice I would like to give that be-aware of pickpocketers, thieves and frauds because there are too many fraud persons who are always looking for an innocent person and try to make him fool and some illegal money. So be aware of frauds!
