"Great trip with Kabara Travels"

First of all I have to tell about one thing about Kabra travels. I booked the ticket in one phone call. From time to time I travel to Surat and between this time, I have seen this bus take two stops from Ahmedabad to Surat. Stops at a great hotel to eat some food and relax as it is a long journey. I have to say great service by Kabra Travels.




"Best way to avoid highway traffic is to go via Ankleshwaria"

It\'s approx 4 hour journey by road, provided you don\'t meet with a traffic at Bharuch. It\'s a horror show if you are stuck up there which often happens. I found an alternate way which is via Ankleshwaria to Hansot to Olpad to Surat. Nice scenic roads with almost no traffic. Best way to avoid highway traffic.

All over its good experience to travel by train. Easily got the place. but train was late for 1 hour from its defined time because of rain. Overall, it's good, so its fine for families to travel by train. and also good to book tickets prior, else it can lead some stuff. Surat and Ahmedabad both are nice destination.



"Comfortable and safe road trip"

The Road from Ahmedabad to even Bombay is really good and safe too. You may have to pay toll fees in between but the journey will be awesome. You can find good hotels for refreshment and meals too. It may take 3.5 hours for 260 KM travel. This is national highway including one express highway from Ahmedabad to Vadodara. Enjoy and drive safely.



"Good train to travel and on time service "

It good to travel by Navjeevan as it starts early morning at 6. 40 Am so that you reach Surat by 10. 25. The train will be always on time except 10-15 minutes early or late. Food is available in train.
