We took 7am Kolhapur - Ganapatipule ST. Started well in time. The highlight of the journey is climbing down Amba Ghat between Amba to Sakharpa. You keep turning left and right every few meters going down towards sea. Well, thats your destination. There are couple of Ghats between Sakharpa and Pali, too. Hatkhamba to Ratnagiri and back and then to Ganapatipule is more like going from Hill Station to Desert. Once you reach Ganapatipule, you are back at hill station, although you are once more near sea. :-)
The bus reaches Ganapatipule at 12noon rather than 2pm as listed in online schedule.

We got good bus from Parel stand and bus was very good. Being daytime, it was my sitting journey, so I got good seat. Being senior citizen, I got concession too. I paid only 156/- or so, for 1 way. It goes up to Nashik Mahamarg, from where I took auto to reach hotel. Roads are very good, and our driver also was good and not rash. Bus halted for tea at 1 hotel for 20 mins. Conductor was helpful in giving good seat to me. On way, there is no much to see, but nice to see the good road ahead.

Impressed with new Scannia bus in Fleet - nice & sturdy bus as compared to volvo. Seats are comfortable. Suspension is superb. Arrangement for announcement in bus makes it easier for new passanger. On time & safe journey by. Bus driver should voluntarily give nespaper & water bottle instead of passange demanding for it. Anyway we can understand burden on him. LCD provided in bus is never used by, don't know reason why?

The most punctual bus service is surprisingly the government service called Shivneri. However, it's slightly expensive but the buses always leave on time as they do not wait for the buses to get full unlike private operators. Also stops are short and quick.

It was a quick one day trip to Mumbai. The hotel is situated quite close to the highway airport and andheri station and is situated in a peaceful locality. The rooms could've been better. The food from the restaurant was tasty. Super open terrace bar.more »

The buses begin at Dadar. The bus was clean and tidy and we were provided with water bottles. Though the in city speed limits were slow, later it was quite good. They halted once for a break. Overall the trip was fine. We reached the destination on time.

Had a great stay at Gateway Hotel Hinjewadi. With proximity to Rajiv Gandhi IT Park, it is a good place to live in, the check in and check out was very smooth. Was very near to major corporates, right next door we had the D-mart and brandfactory. Well furnished rooms with good amenities. Great...more »

We reached Nasik by train and from there took State bus MSRTC. There were simple reason to take the bus of state service as we wanted to explore the locality through this. Local people local language and the smell of Maharashtra can be gained using basic services only. The ride was very soothing, the route through the way was not pleasant but the ride must say was good as I had a wonderful accompany.

Bus stop for some time for snack there through the highway you can start feeling the devotees feeling.

Traveling to Pune by Shivneri Volvo is a pleasure. Buses are clean. They depart on time and not many stops. Good air conditioning. Comfortable push back seats. Not many jerks. Drivers drive safely. You can get on spot ticket. Buses leave every 15 minutes.

Stayed at St Laurn Pune for two nights on a business trip. Overall had a decent experience except for few shortcomings for which I am not rating this hotel as excellent. The check-in was smooth but took some time. The staff at the reception was courteous. The lobby was comfortable and pleasant....more »

I think MSRTC should use different buses from there regular buses. They can use specially made buses of big windows or buses of glass, where visitors can view the beauty of Mahabaleshwar.

Bus was in good condition. Driver and ticket checker were polite and cooperative. Bus driver was driving bus safely with reasonable speed and driving sense. Bus was punctual while boarding as well as while dropping us at the destination. Halt was at okay place but it was in accordance with majority of commuters, i.e., economic class.
