Surat is believed to be founded by a Brahmin named Gopi, who built a water reservoir which was known as Surajpur or Suryapur. Surat is popularly known as the “Embroidery capital of India”, as it houses the highest number of embroidery units in India. Surat is also the diamond capital of India. Diamonds from all over the world are cut and polished here. Surat is also known for its textile mills and is also engaged in manufacturing muslin, cotton, silks, and brocades.

Lonavala, often called Lonavla is a picturesque hill resort situated in the Pune district of Maharashtra. A popular getaway destination, Lonavala is famous for the unique charm that it possesses, especially during the Monsoons. Although it is more renowned as a hill resort, the place has achieved a special place in the gastronomic chart of the country because of a hard candy sweet known as chikki (sweetmeat made out of Groundnuts and Jaggery), which is the specialty of the region. It is also a major railway station placed on the railway line connecting Mumbai and Pune. Lonavala is also an important town along the Mumbai-Pune road. That the place is important is apparent from the fact that both the major highways - the Mumbai-Pune Expressway as well as the Mumbai-Pune highway - passes through Lonavala. Lonavala is the ideal spot to spend a quiet weekend with family and friends, away from the fast-paced city life.
Instead of 11.30 bus reached by 12.45 and reached at lonavala by 8.30 aginst scheduled time of 6 AM. I was asked driver for 2 min stoppage for Toilet but he dont. Also, I was charged heavily
No proper pick up information, dropped on middle of highway at lonavala, very bad system, need to change, no proper response over phone
The bus came 45 min late and it was a very old volvo with lots of vibration inside. It arrived also late. Seat was so congested that I could sleep at all.
As per my trip timings, trip stands cancelled and they had planned two hours early trip bus. i had to face problems due to 2 hours early journey. Requesting if travel agency is not ready to provide facility, they should not show that trip while bookings in redbus.
