I started my journey from the Indira Gandhi Airport. I choose your flight because I heard a lot about Go Air from my colleagues and really the experience which i feel was very very good. The service which is given by Go Air was very excellent. The behaviour of the staff are also very nice. I enjoyed a lot my journey in the shadow of Go Air.
The travel was nice with excellent sightseeing and nice weather. No traffic jams and roads are good with exception of few rough patches. The ride was comfortable and good. Fuel stations are available en route so fuel is not a problem. Also availability of roadside dhabas for food which offer good quality with low prices is a plus point. Even though roads seem virtually empty at times with no soul in sight, it is not scary and in fact the tranquillity of the the places en route is part of the trip. Very well enjoyed, would love to visit again.
It was a wonderful experience in bus. Good service and good food, also good environment. The room was so good and well-decorated and bed was also very comfortable and cleanly decorated. The staff were good and service was very good. I was there in winter vacation. It was so exciting to stay in such hotel with all the facilities. Good ventilated room with all the amenities. Good stay and enjoyed the holidays.
Bus was as described. It was very punctual on both boarding and departure. It stopped for lunch at a good location. Only bad thing was that their were no curtains on the windows. So sometimes sunlight disturbed a lot as it was a day journey. But this isn't a big factor. Rest all were good like cleanliness, and comfortable seats with leg recliners.
