      It was a nice trip, loved the beauty of Prague and Budapest. Should have planned one more day in Prague than Vienna. Thanks a lot Rohit and Prashant for all your help and guidance. Both of them were always available whenever we needed them. Also, due to flight delay our airport pickup was missed and we booked taxi by ourself but they provided us the refund. Overall, nice trip and good experience from travel triangle.

      The tour was good and well coordinated including staying in hotels, transport and other facilities. The experience of Hop on & Hop off buses both in Vienna and London were good. Vishal Thakur's coordination during our trip was commendable. His help in searching out transport to reach to Crystal world in Innsbruck and his 24 hours availability on phone was really helpful.

      My tour of Munich, Vienna, Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam was very well organized by Memorable Vacations Holidays. They took care of all the hotel, flight and train bookings including all the pickups. The sight-seeing which they had arranged was also very good. In this regard, I would like to express my gratitude for all the help extended by Pratik and everyone else at Memorable Vacations. They were always there to help me out during the entire journey starting from the initial planning until the very end of the tour.

    • Trip to Europe

      Overall it was an excellent tour of Vienna, Budapest and Prague. Some point of improvement for the agent or things which can be taken care by new travelers... 1. Searching for cab driver after landing at the Vienna airport was tough. 2.Rooms of Ramada encore in Vienna and IBIS in Budapest were very small. 3. There was no electric water heating machine ( used for tea/coffee) in IBIS-Budapest and Fortuna west-Prague, so it was little problem for us. 4. Fortune-West hotel in Prague was far away from the main city. 5.We should have been informed that exchange price in India is best as compared to European countries. Excellent response time, proactive and very professional. Special Appreciation to Agent- Daman, who designed my entire itinerary and made all the bookings

      Not booked the flight, 7 months ago

    • Trip to Europe

      The itinerary for Prague, Vienna and Budapest was well designed with good hotels, enjoyable sightseeings and a pretty good flight, all these things at a reasonable price. However, a few negative experiences were - The initial list of documents for Schengen visa shared with us was incomplete, so we had to postpone our visa appointment Even after asking the travel agent multiple times for vegetarian meals on the flights, they were not requested for The agent informed us that the baggage allowance on Emirates is 23kg, even though 30kg check in baggage was allowed For one of our transfers, the cab pick up time was 40 mins after our arrival time. So we had to wait for our cab at the railway station Overall, a good experience for me and my family. Slightly better services would have made it a 'Perfect' trip for me.

    • Trip to Europe

      Hey Shubham, i would like to than you (Travel Triangle ) and Memorable Vacations for the recent Europe Trip of ours. I would like to list few things on which you guys can improve upon so that our travel would be more pleasant. First let me speak about the good things that happened , thanks for giving us one of the best quotations which took nearly more than a month and it was worth the wait and customizations were allowed too. Second thing was we got to travel thru Flix Bus, EU Train while travelling across the different destinations in Europe, whcih helped us in exploring the scenic views and few of the scenes were magnificient and breath taking. Things that dint turn out well, NEVER EVER GIVE JUST 1 HOUR TRANSIT AT THE FRANKFURT AIRPORT, Just like how you guys had given to us, there was bit delay in departure in Blre we reached few mins late to frankfurt and airport is so so HUGE, we had go through security check again there and then by the time we reach the boarding gate and the gate was closed and lufthanse people said our flight is missed and we need to contact their help desk, this is when we need your help more than anything, when we contacted Memorable Vacations people, we hardly got any help from them and that moment i lost all the hopes on them. I was so much worried about the flight that we missed and flight rates were more than 400 Eruos per ticket and by EU train it was 100 euros and it would 8 Hrs to reach to Prague, we would have lost one day and it did create lot and lot of chaos for us. When i biught up this issue with Memorable Vacations about the flight miss, they were very eager on telling about the Cab they had arranged for us to pick up at the Prague, that was utter non sense, When we have missed the flight how come travel guide can speak about the cab they had arranged. Hop on Hop off were arranged at Prague, Salzburg & Vienna, first of all its very difficult to reach to the place to board these buse's and these hop on hop off doesnt include all the Travel Destinations that we need to look at, In prague we stayed for 3 nights, 1 day we got hop on hop off and one day we got Cruise and Can yoy imagine the duration of cruise was just 55 min and reaching to place were the cruise is very difficult. They dint assist in getting the flight for us nor they assisted in getting the cab at the prague airport. Hotel in Prague was below average. Hotel's in salzbur & vienna was good. But the hotel's are located far from the city so they are available at less price and these travel portal make lot of money in that too, again no transport provided to reach the hotel. One Advise to people--> Check your travel itenary, check the Hop on Hop Off vouchers along with the duration & details. Never Ever have your Transit time as 1 hour in Frankfurt airport, go for mimimum 2 hours or more. One advise to Travel Triangle and Memorable Vacations: Please provide the taxi to reach to the hotel and to reach the hop on hop off desitnation and Cruise destination and what so ever. That's the whole intention is we book our tour through you guys, if it was only booking Flights and Hotel's any one can do it. But i felt, when our flight was missed, they would have assisted in better way rather than raising their hand up, luckily, we dint miss the flight because of delay from our end, we missed it because of late departure and security check which took longet than expected, We had work with Lufthanse customer hellp desk and they gave us the next available flight which was in next couple of hours, that eased our tension and we continued with our Tour with barely minimum loss of 4 hours. Overall the tour was GOOD, but it would have been more pleasant, if the above mentioned points were taken care.

    • Trip to Europe

      Me and my husband had just about 1.5 months and a tight budget to plan a trip to Eastern Europe (Vienna, Budapest and Prague). We were in touch with multiple trip planners with TravelTriangle being one of them. In this whole process of finalizing the itinerary, travel dates, accommodation etc. Shubham Sagar from Travel Triangle was a great help. Shubham worked really hard on understanding our requirements and went through several iterations to give us the best possible plan. Truly speaking, we couldn't have created one like this ourselves. We were booked at centrally located 3/4 star hotels and had all the transfers included. We wanted to keep our schedule relatively relaxed, so were given bookings on cruises, day passes which included free public transportation & entry to some of the spots, hop on-hop off city tours which gave us a lot of flexibility and still let us see the best that the city had to offer. Shubham constantly kept checking with us about our travel and stay when we were on the trip and was always available for any help. Prashant was also a great help for helping us with any questions on bookings. Overall, an amazing trip where we could enjoy every bit of the travel free of all the hassles of bookings, planning etc. Would definitely recommend TravelTriangle to others.
