1) The Bus started at 10 pm from Bangalore, instead of the scheduled departure time of 9 pm. 2)The Bus reached Kodaikanal at 11.30 A.M instead of the arrival time of 7 am. 3) The Bus could not climb the Ghat section as the Engine condition was extremely poor.
Dont ever promote this travel for Kodaikanal travel . The staff does not know what is punctuality or what is basic courtesy . They are highly corrupt. Even though the bus could have reached the destination on time, The driver stopped at three restaurants after 7.0 am and reached the destination at 10.30 am instead of 6.30 am. When we questioned the driver , the driver behaved very badly.
Really unhappy with the timings. When it was mentioned 9pm departure and the bus delayed for 1hr which made a delay in our arrival. The staff behavkour is too rude though unnecesaary they take extra ticket for kids and do not provide Proper ticket. This journey was a bad experience, if the punctuality cant be met then any passenger will not be satisfied. Hope you understand our pdoblem. Thank you.
Bus broke down 40km before Kodaikanal. Horrible experience :(
