I was particularly impressed with the early arrival of the driver and the free 1 hour wait which meant we were not rushed to get in the car. I will recommend the service to all my friends . EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY. Thank you.

Train #12716 2A - AC 2-Tier Sleeper, Indian Railways, Mar 22, 2020
The train looked like dirty and under maintenance when we arrived at the station. But the beds, sheets, blankets and pillows were totally clean, inside a sealed plastic bag. It was a shot trip - just 4 hours but we were exausted of a trip from Israel to Delhi, so we were thankful that we can go sleeping. The negative point was the toilet´s smell. I didn´t get to use it.

Train #12002 CC - AC Chair Class, Indian Railways, Feb 7, 2020
The train was fine and comfortable (chair class) but almost fell foul to a scammer at the station telling me my ticket was invalid and the train was 6 hours late. He stopped when I told him I would call our driver back to talk to him. No surprise then that the ticket was fine on the train. The station operators need to sort this out.

For India standards I thought this was pretty good. Comfy seat/sleeper bed. Available to charge/plug in a device. Only downfall is that they don’t announce the destination so you have to pay attention to timing to know when to get off

The New Delhi Railway station is full of scammers, we were stopped by two people claiming to be police outside the Delhi station saying our train was cancelled due to govt policy in response to recent protests. It was also very difficult to find your train. Overall condition was very hostile. There is no staff who you can ask. The train itself is alright. Train was quite full. However there was a 3hour delay to the original 3hour train ride.

Organised, left on time,the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The only thing that could be improved was that the Website showed that the train was leaving from platform 5 when it was platform 4 but as they were next to each other it was fine.

Train #12626 2A - AC 2-Tier Sleeper, Indian Railways, Nov 21, 2019
We were unable to book on-line 1st class for our train - the Kerala Express which left at 11.25 but when we arrived at the station over 1 hour before departure the station office were also unable to do anything about it. However the 2nd class carriage had AC and was perfectly acceptable for the duration of the journey. The chai and the biriyani lunch were excellent and very inexpensive!
