    • Trip to Andaman

      We had a nice trip. The cab services were nice and all the hotels and tickets were taken care properly. But when we wanted to visit alternate places when some places are closed due to rain the driver was not ready to take us there and instead asked us extra money since it was not there in the itinerary. We had to waste a whole day because we visited a place in itinerary when it was raining before and they were not ready to take us to any other places.

North bay island is cool for scuba and other water activities. Glass water boat ride is good. The 30 KM ride to chidiya tapu was amazing. Overall the tour was awesome.

      Trip was good. Hotels and cabs provided r neat. Only thing is that they wasted nearly 2 days out of 5 days in travel itself. Nothing can be done after making the bookings. Atleast things has to be discussed b4 making the booking.

      There was no tour/ site scene provided to me on day 1 of Havlock island eventhough it was written in my itenery. Also, I called my travel agents many times for the same issue, however there were no response from their side for the same. This was very disappointing. Properties of Neil Island & port Blair were wonderful. Services of Drivers were also very nice and they were very polite.
