Its 6-hour drive from Delhi to Gwalior which is quite reasonable and decent for a weekend gateway. So, we opted for Ola outstation service which is You can also take Delhi-Habibganj Shatabdi for this journey, but I will suggest you take Ola Outstation because in the way from Delhi to Gwalior you will get many photo opportunity which you will miss in Shatabdi.
