The website is very informative and detailed. Almost all my queries about bus timings, the night tour timings and redemption of tickets were sorted on the website. The best ticketing website I have come across.
I liked the tour but it all depends if you get a good bus with a decent crowd. Since it was the peak holiday all the buses were running full and always had too many crowds, it kind of feels cramped.
