Vikas's 5 days trip to AndamanWe had a memorable trip visiting Andaman for 6 D/5 N. It will be remembered for life time and thanks to Anitha from Jubilant travels for arranging things very professionally.
Rajatsen's 7 days trip to AndamanThe experience of travel traingle is memorable and I will definitely recommend it to my colleagues also. The best part of the journey is that I enjoyed each and every moment without any worries about travelling and accommodation.I want to recommend something that I experienced is that the client should also be provided with the room no. Initially because during check in the hotel staff sometimes provide the rooms which are not up to the mark. I want to add if any other island should be instead of Neil is possible. If talking about the memories,the whole journey is memorable to us.some best of which we experienced at ross island,North bay island and moments we share with Neil island staff specially suman.Water sports activity at eliphanta beach. The best part of the whole Andaman tour is its delicious morning breakfast
Maan's 4 days trip to AndamanIt was a great experience and well organized by sky tour travel agent and cab driver were well behaved and professional. We thoroughly enjoyed our time Scuba diving
Mohit's 6 days trip to AndamanDrivers were not at all professional in Havelock and Neil. Even in Havelock, one driver left us to do Kayaking at a very high cost, more than double, setting his share in between. And then not coming back to pick up back after activity. Got cheated badly there.
Rumana's 6 days trip to Andaman. The hotels suggested by Yugal were excellent in terms of Quality and Service. The Drivers and Trip Co-Ordinator's in all the Three Islands were knowledgeable about the places and were extremely punctual and active. The communication within their team internally is superb hence we did not face any issues. Yugal is an excellent travel agent. He is very proactive and very patiently responds to all queries. He customized the travel plan according to our requirements and took care of everything that we requested for. For our future travels we would definitely want to book with Lazyatra and also recommend our friends and family members to experience their service.

We thought to skip the place due to busy schedules but then Taposh ( tour manager) has managed to get us in another time available which was very kind of him and was surprising.Only One word for Yugal - Superstar. We had couple of hiccups with our flights and Yugal has just managed with ease to create new plan within a small time window. So much passionate about his work and ready to help at any given time.
