"The car driver was co-operative"

The car was the best selection we got to have from the travel agent. The agent offered us his best option of a new Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. The car was very spacious for three of us. Also it help us a lot to overcome the hilly nausea effect which is a common problem for not so frequent hilly travellers. The driver of the car was very co-operative and he was more than a driver to us. He was a fellow companion who helped us choose the best dhabas, restaurant and market options for us. He would suggest us the best time to see certain spots and also told us to avoid some areas which would not be effective for us considering our jam packed tour routine. If anyone wants to have a guide cum driver I would suggest to hire him for your trip next time. The driver name is Praveen and he would ...Read More

"A splendid experience"

We started early morning from Mysore. The road till Nanjangud is under construction. After Nanjangud, it was a good journey through Bandipur National Sanctuary(KA) and Mudumalai National Park (TN). We traveled via Masinagudi. This road is meant for expert drivers. There are about 36-38 hairpin turns on this route. As it is on hill terrain and visibility of the vehicles may be a issue, would advise drivers to use horn. The road is good and beautiful scenery around. We reached Ooty within 4 hours. While returning we came by much longer route, because we wanted to visit Pykara waterfalls. The road was very bad and was in shambles, at least till we reached Mudumalai National Park. We had to travel very slow. It took us almost 7 hours to reach Mysore.

We travelled in our own car and the journey in the car was good. Fully busy traffic was there from Mysore to Nanjangud and the roads are in very worst conditions. After Nanjangud journey took its excitement as weather was excellent.

It was a really very good experience to visit Ooty by car. You have lot of options if you are going by car. You can get down on the way and explore some areas nearby. Half of the memory in our camera’s memory card was full even before reaching Ooty. It was a really amazing experience! We hired a taxi, but if you can hire a car. That way, you can be relaxed. And if you have your own car, nothing like it. I can tell you, you will never regret the decision to drive to Ooty.

we found a nice journey in a ac bus, but while travelling through ghats/hill My son suddenly felt the sensation of vomiting since it is a ac bus he cannot popout through window and nor a bag to vomit. they didn't stop the vechicle. infact 2 to 3 passengers felt the same, there was a conversation between passengers & conductor for not providing a bag/paper bag etc. since it is a ac bus.they have to provide these facilities

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.
