Good place to visit. It was my first experience to see the man made caves. Please keep in mind to leave the place on time if you are visiting there by public transport.

Pune to Ellora journey time is appx 5 hours. 1st day if you are not tired enjoy Ellora. Ellora caves are west facing caves and there are no/almost no electrical bulbs/ lights inside the caves so if you see these caves post noon you get to see inside the caves with natural light. But do carry a torch, water, hat/cap, umbrella and something to be eat. Must see at Ellora is Kailasha Temple. It is single rock cut out temple and is awesome. Rest are typical caves. On day 1 visit caves as those need natural sunlight and 2nd day with fresh energy levels see Kailasha Temple and if you missed anything on 1st day. Do take guide otherwise you may feel looking at blank rocks (personal thought). When you go to Ajanta make sure you reach as early as possible (check opening hours). Ajanta Caves are EAST facing caves and as Ellora there is no/very dim electrical bulbs. so if you visit AM hours you get sunlight inside caves. But do crarry torch and do take guide who can explain you what you are looking at. Since you are reaching end of Oct weather should be pleasant. Last day what time you have flight I would say keep that only for traveling or at max visit Bibi ka makbara. But If I have to travel 5 hours and catch flight As well I will keep some time in hand and traffic plays very important role in commute here in India. It may take more time to reach back in case it's not your day.
