Mr. Raunak had planned our entire trip to the perfection with comfortable stay options. Raunak was keeping in touch during the entire trip. We had no problem whatsoever at any place.

Samridhi's 13 days trip to SydneyWe had a good trip to Australia. Mostly everything was very organised and at ease of convenience. We personally feel our hotels at Sydney and Melbourne could have been better but the ones at Cairns and Gold Coast were amazing. We didn't like our decision of self-drive car considering how it is a hassle specially when you don't know your way in the city. Australia is an amazing country to visit especially if you are looking for a peaceful vacation.
Rajinder's 10 days trip to SydneyVery co operative staff. All the activities were on time.
Padmapriya's 7 days trip to SydneyWe had an awesome trip and everything was taken care of. Only issue we faced was we were asked to download pick your trail app and use it. In the app our pick up time mentioned was 5.30 am whereas the driver said it was 5 am and charged us 35 dollars extra. We still have not received the resolution from pick your trail. Otherwise everything went well as per the itenary.
