World's Longest Bus Route To Launch From UK To India
Category: General

Brits will soon be able to get a new bus service from London... to Delhi!

An epic new bus route from Adventures Overland is set to launch in 2021 which will see travellers covering 20,000km in 70 days, with stops in 18 countries.

Passengers will be able to buy tickets for the full journey, or opt to travel for one of four legs. In fact, the bus route will be the first ever hop-on/hop-off bus service between the UK and India.

As for the journey itself?

We're talking European hotspots including Moscow, Vilnius, Prague, Brussels and Frankfurt, to the ancient cities in Uzbekistan such as Tashkent and Samarkand.

The bus will even include a cruise on the Caspian Sea in Kazakhstan, before continuing on to China to explore the Gobi Desert, hike the Great Wall, meet Giant Pandas in Chengdu and then travel through the Silk Route.

Oh, and before making the final stop in New Delhi, passengers will also have the chance to explore the spectacular pagodas of Myanmar.

Now, the coronavirus pandemic isn't exactly making it easy to travel the world, so at the moment while the bus journey from the UK is expected to launch in July 2021, there is no confirmed departure date.

(Then of course Brits will also need to see what FCO advice is for the countries included in the journey).

Adventures Overland's founders, Sanjay Madan and Tushar Agarwal, know a thing or two about epic journeys.

As a team, they hold a Guinness World Record and 15 Limca Book of Records for long-distance driving expeditions.

Tushar Agarwal explained: "Every single route in each country has been vetted to ensure that the journey is seamless. We take charge of documentation and permits to ensure that the entire focus of participants is on experiencing the journey.

"We ensure an experienced English speaking local guide is travelling with the group at all hours to ensure personal safety, smooth communication and travel.

"The bus on this epic journey is being customised to add all the necessities, comforts and luxuries which will ensure that participants travel in the lap of luxury all the way from the UK to India."

The bus itself looks pretty swanky too, with concept imagery showing that Brits will be travelling in style with spacious seating and heaps of on-board amenities.

Sanjay Madan said: "We share a common love for travel, and now we are thrilled to introduce the first bus service from London all the way to New Delhi with utmost comfort and luxury.

"Providing a niche and classy experience in a secure environment is our top priority. The route of this journey is tried and tested as we have already execute three back to back road trips from India to London on the same route so participants on Bus to London can get onboard with the knowledge and confidence that they are in safe hands."
