Worst service by Air India staff. Our flight was scheduled for 8:30 am take off but there was no staff at the airport gate till 9:00 am. No information about delay. Then they rescheduled it to 12, again at 12 they rescheduled it to 1:30. Delayed by 5 hours. We can take a cab to Shirdi in 5 hours.
The journey from Mumbai to Shirdi takes 5 hours of drive, that may vary depending upon the traffic situation. Now for that 5 hours drive we plan such that we get minimum traffic such as leave early in the morning, you get less traffic, have breakfast on the highway dhabas. There are many dhabas on the way to Shirdi and they serve their food in their native way and that is worth trying it.
On the way you get to see beautiful lakes between the mountain, wind mills rotating in the cool breeze and curvy roads to drive on. The journey becomes even better with good friends, music and cool weather.

I travelled to Shirdi last month in SS travels a/c bus with friends. I chose SS travels because one of my relative suggested this bus. After travelling in this bus it was memorable experience.

Hotel location is one of the greatest advantage, as it is just 2-3 min from Shirdi Temple. Rooms are decent with good cleanliness. Didn't try the food in hotel, so cannot comment exactly on the same. I think rates should be slightly reduced during non peak season. Else Hotel is good with good...more »
