Hi - we'll be traveling in February with our two youngest sons. We're taking an overnight train from Varanasi (how exactly am I supposed to book that BTW?) and arriving in Gorakhpur where I prefer to take a private taxi to the border. We're in a bit of a hurry and I try not to do any public transport with the boys in case someone gets sick etc. (based on past experiences with that happening...).
I found a couple places online but am not sure if they're reliable and honest (bad experience in Vietnam with a taxi attempting to charge us more than we agreed on upon arrival - we didn't pay it).
I read on here that there are the big and smaller buses to the border? If we get stuck, I'd opt for the smaller bus. How long does that take to reach the border? We have a ride once we arrive and pass through immigration.
