Agra to Varanasi Destination Reviews

Bus didn't show up, and when contacting
Bus AC Sleeper, Kalpana Travels Kanpur, Mar 9, 2023
Unfortunately the bus picked us with 1,5 hours delay, on our way the bus driver had to repair one front tyre and so we arrived in Varanasi with 6 hours delay.
Bus AC Seater, Goyal Travels, Feb 19, 2023
Bus stand is reasonably easy to find. Area around it is a bit dark though. There was a surcharge of 20rs for luggage in the luggage compartment. Not too expensive, but would be nice to know about it beforehand. Beds were about 175 cm long. So taller people might have some trouble when sleeping. Sheets were provided but a bit small for two. So ask for a second if sleeping next to someone. Bus itself had working airconditioning and was quite smooth once you leave the city, and we arrived without technical problems at the correct destination. My main problem was with the crew that was shouting announcements, banging on the walls throughout the night and being overly stressful and hyperactive. They also keep pulling open the curtains while we were trying to sleep. They also let salespeople aboard who try to sell you stuff as well as people along the way who didn’t have a reservation. As such, the hallway was filled with people as well. So best to prepare for some lack of sleep due to staff being obnoxious. Overall, they will get you there and the points of pick up and drop off are clear, but prepare yourself for a loud night without a lot of privacy.

Great experience. Understood the carriage numbers and found our berths ok.
Train #13238 1A - AC First Class Sleeper, Indian Railways, Oct 17, 2022
The pick up place is very dark and unclear. Is a normal bus with bunkbeds. Not long enough for large people. You need to share bunkbed side by side (same space).
