In India roads could appear to be pot-holed and traffic chaotic and hence our guests very frequently get very worried. We suggest that you catch up on some sleep or read a book or even better put on your in-flight eye shades and doze off. The drivers are well trained and they are used to these roads. The cars that we use are safe, insured for and routinely checked. Trains however are much more comfortable ride-wise. Do carry your dry hand wash and tissue always while taking train journeys. The flights are pleasant and service good.
