Shirdi is one of the most preferred spiritual destination in Modern India. It boasts to be city of Sai Baba. It is located near Manmad Maharashtra ( Around 50 Kms away ). The main problem to travel instantly, faced by people like me is the " Confirmed Railway Tickets ". On surfing the net I came across the package tour offered by IRCTC. Since I had taken their trip to Vaishno Devi few years back. I was not sure if they still had the same quality. But on second thoughts I decided to go ahead and booked the tour. But to my utter pleasant surprise, I found the tour to be extremely wonderful and courtesy beyond expectations. We were well recd in an air conditioned vehicle at Kopargaon at 4.30 p.m. ( travelled by Karnataka Express ). The Driver of the vehicle called us as soon as the train stopped at Kopragaon station and told us about his location and requested us to come out of the platform and meet him. We were straight driven to Hotel Bhagyalakshmi at Shirdi. We had two rooms (with triple occupancy) and I must say that were not disappointed by the rooms. We were served with a welcome drink as well. What I was really impressed by is the Courtesy extended by Hotel and its staff and their mannerism. The staff is quite well mannered and ready to extend any reasonable help, which you are entitled to. The food quality and taste was reasonably good. Although we had fixed menu sometimes and Buffet on few occasions, we feel satisfied with both options. The staff was always at service and trying to serve us on the table even during the buffet. Their softness and willingness to serve is worth mentioning. All the meals are included in the package. We were taken to "Shani Shingnapur" on the second day by an Air Conditioned vehicle. Shani Shignapur is a religious place around 70 kms from Shirdi having temple of Shani Dev. We started at around 9.15 in the morning and were dropped back at 2.00 pm when the lunch was ready to be served. I would give a "Thumps Up" to IRCTC for creating such a wonderful tour with a useful itinerary.
