I really enjoyed the journey and the bus moved in express speed. I was really happy to travel on that day and I travelled with my brother. We enjoyed the route and we passed our time with comedies so the time passed away. The conductor was good in character. The conductor served the passengers really very good and they reached correct on time at the Chennai Bus Stand. I liked the travel very much.

Nice travel experience I enjoyed the same. I got all facilities at halt station. They met punctual time at destination place. I would recommend this operator and Ticketgoose to all my friends. It would be better if we get water bottle and TV entertainment which was missing. I liked this journey.

The whole travel was fully comfortable and good experience because I did not travel in AC bus before. But they gave us a wonderful punctuality in both boarding pass and destination time. But they got extra 50 Rs from me as tax. They could have informed before about the extra amount while booking tickets online.
