EXService Man Dependent Tourist Service is really horrible. Without any prior notice they changed the bus in last minute because no schedule bus available at that time. Moreover no information regarding internet booking was available to them, they accommodate us in the last row (middle seats) of the bus which not at all expected as we booked for window seat.
Started 20 minutes late...comfort level was s0.....the sits was too little to be comfortable for two...there was no leg space....pushback facility not working..
the bus had some infrastructure problems.water was flowing from roof top and in spite repeated request the authorities didnt listen to it. try to avoid this bus service if you have other options.
Travelling in ex serviceman bus is s horrible experience. Bus condition is very poor. Water is coming out of the a.c and falling on our seat. Whenever it is raining outside we get bathed by the rain as water is coming within the bus from the window joint at the roof of the bus.
