I guess City Tours is a fake one.I booked bus ticket from Palakad to chennai on City Tours.23rd(Travelling day)for 1099. I got a call from City Tours and they informed me that there is change in the seat number and bus.Bus name is Parveen Travels and they have given me Driver Number.When I aksed the City tour person about his office location,he asked me to call the driver and ask me to check where the bus will come.At last I went to Parveen Travels Office . When I checked the list of passenger name, I saw few list of passenger name including me but all phone numbers are same (City Tour Travels Number.Parveen Travels charges around 860 Rs but City tours have charged 1099 for this ticket. I suspect this is a tie up between Parveen Travels and City Tours.Because when I was booking ticket Parveen Travels bus was showing as filled up and City Tour has space.Please take some action against this
The departure time of the bus was at 0930hrs but it reached at 1035hrs and started journey to Chennai at 1100hrs. Instead of reaching Chennai as per projected time at 0700hrs it reached at 1015hrs. The planning of mine to reach office on Monday (31/08/15) has totally failed due to poor punctuality of bus timings.
Most pathetic travel I ever had,bus was 4 hours late and the Bus was uncomfortable,no push backs,no proper ac,no alloted seats,they made us wait half an hour on the road in the midnight as their bus got repaired
This was the horrible travel, first I have to wait for the bus for almost 2 and half hours and there were no proper response from the bus staff. After boarding the bus, the a.c.wasnt working and in few seats water s dripping over the vent. Never optfor this travelswater.waswawasdfdffddripping from the vent.
