Would recommend people to travel. Safe and secure. Punctual. It was nice
Bus is good but there was no video coach as said earlieer. there was tv set but that was not working. but puntuality was good. but they charged 10 Rs. per luggage bag that was not mentioned earlier.
This so called Volvo bus was straight out from nightmare. Air conditioning didnt work for the whole journey. Pathetic depressing songs were played to entertain all tourists instead of any movie. For dinner, bus stopped at the filthiest Dhaba ever. For 1 dal and 4 rotis they charged, 500 INR. Really bad start to a short vacation. Never boarding HRTC buses again.
When i booked the bus i was told the bus would be AC but in reality it was non-ac, bad expereince.
