Very good experience

Mode of Transport: Car

It is a nice trip. My family enjoyed the trip. Really we feel that we are not in the car. Car travelling is very comfort. Because we can closely see and enjoy the natural beauty. Roads are fantastic. So we can safely drive the vehicle without fear. On the way we eat very good Tamil foods.
