Visit http://www.tirumala.org/darshan.htm for dharsan booking

There are many buses available to thirumala and taxi is another option

First things first, once you reach Tirupati without wasting first go and get the earliest time slot available, as its Sat. Sun depending on the piligrim flow you may either get after 6 hrs or after 12 (in peak periods you may get after 48 hrs also something like if you visiting on Weekend followed by public holliday like August 15).

Your hotel staff should guide you on the nearest point where the token time slot is given, its normally available around the Railway Station / Bus Station. If you can get the time slot on the same day then next day you can do the local site seeing. AP Tourism also operates a daily site seeing tour.

When you take a time slot the time of darshan will vary anywhere between 1 hr to 3 hrs depending on the day (like weekends, holidays, national holidays, special religious days, special poojas at Tirumala on given day and so on) so its all guesses but average time will be as specified above.

As you are arriving on Oct. 15 and a tuesday and considering Duserra holidays will end i think you should be able to complete in less than 2hrs but again its all guess. Lets say a VIP arrived wtih a group of members at the same time you in Q it means definitely it will delay by 15-20 minutes further.

You can take the Print along with the ORIGINAL PHOTO ID OF ALL THE ADULTS and proceed to the Q complex where you will have large cabins with basic seating arrangments along with toilets and some food stuff available for sale. As already mentioned above the darshan time will take anywhere between 1 to 3 hrs once you enter it. Once the Q starts moving you should be able to have the darshan in one hour time. Ofcourse exceptions are always there depending on the days and pooja time the Q will be stopped in between and that again varies on the time.

I would strongly recommend to avoid visiting during this period as its holiday season, the online website accommodation & darshan tickets are over, so you can try at Delhi TTD office even if you cant get there just drop the trip. I dont wont to repeat what i had been already mentioned in some of my previous post related to this topic.
