Hi everyone.
I am looking to book organised bus tour to Ellora and Ajanta caves on to 2 consecutive days.
So far I have been only able to find car with driver but I would prefer to go with group tour to save some money.
Do you know any agencies that do that?
I have read that MIDC office offer this kid of service but cant seam to find any information on their website as well no email-address to speak directly to them.
I arrive to Aurangabad at 20:30pm and would like to go to Ellora the next morning so I am trying to book transport beforehand. I could go to their office first thing when i arrive but i am not sure till what time they are opened.
Any help would be much appreciated

According to my travel diary we went to the tourist office in Aurangbad but is was closed after 13.30. Also the dependence near the railway station was closed.

We took a rickshaw for the trip to Ellora. Ajanta we visited on a different trip.

On this site you find an email address and phone number for the MTDC.

Might try some of the private operators. I saw this happening in Vizag..

Don't have any contact info for it but maybe Ajanta Tours.
Winter is the best time for this area..

I have absolutely no idea about MTDC bus tour or how it would offer an advantage while visiting Ellora. The caves are only a short way off from Aurangabad (beyond the cantonment area). Take an auto or a bus. Spend the day and take one back.

Ajanta is farther certainly and you could take an early bus to the Ajanta T-point. From there it's an electric bus as such.

The bus v/s DIY option has been discussed here - http://www.indiamike.com/india/mahar.../3/#post728439

Ellora is around 32 kms from Aurangabad Bus stand via NH 211. So, doing this route by auto would be little bit tedious.

There are other mode available for traveling between both the places. Buses going to Dhule may be one option. Shared vehicles could be another option.

Thank you for replies.
Do you know if bus to Ellora could be taken and booked that morning from CBS?
How often do they go? Do they stop outside Ellora caves? And do I catch bus going back to Aurangabad CBS from the same stop?

Regards

There are regular buses and it will drop you just in front of Ghrishneshwar Temple.

Ellora caves are situated just behind the temple.

The tea shop owner in front of temple will tell you the return bus timings.

Maharashtra state road transport corporation (msrtc) runs daily early morning semi luxury (asiad) & AC volvo sightseeing buses to ajanta & ellora from aurangabad cbs. Stops at mtdc center, kranti chowk & cidco bus stand. All the buses will leave from aurangabad cbs. So go to the aurangabad cbs & check next morning availability of bus seats at aurangabad cbs enquiry counter window.
