Passenger reviews out of total 61 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

★★★☆☆
Only 15 minutes late at arrival station. For us there was no need to exchange Voucher sent - printed IR confirmation was enough at Chennai Central. Train seating in CC class adequate enough for daytime travel of 7 hours duration.

Trip OK. GoAsia overcharged me. On their voucher the total amount was higher than the sum of listed items: tickets+fees. GoAsia corrected their mistake and refunded fee overpayment after my email pointing this issue.

The journey was smooth and comfortable, with good amenities provided (towel, blanket, pillow, bedsheet) and clean washroom. Only thing is that there is no food provided and server, as advertised. All in all, trip is good; comfortable and on time.

★★★★☆
Trip from Chennai Central to Bangalore KSR was on time and uneventful. Early booking yielded pantry mid level seats. Smaller and cramped, but alternative was to try to navigate rail India website and reservation system from Canada. Two thumbs up to 12GO Asia. Travel experience and help from Rail India folks great. ,
