    Akshaya's 5 days trip to Delhi

    The hotel in Agra and Ranthambore we're good But the one in Delhi was not good... The travel agent was not readily available..and there was a major goodup with our jungle safari...I thought the safari was booked by agent.. which was not ..and the had no idea safaris have to be booked months prior..so we ended up going to ranthambore and not going on a tiger safari.i think the travel agent should have guided us regarding this. Overall management of the travel agent was not good Tajmahal of course

    Abhijeet's 5 days trip to Delhi

    My trip and points were well planned - Thanks to Garimaji. She is always present and available whenever required. Best Things (Unexpected help from Garimaji) My plan got changed in last moment and she arranged a hotel that to in good price range. Good Points: 1) Hotel in Delhi was really awesome 2) Arranged Cabs 3) Sightseeing points - all major and important points we could see in Delhi, Agra, Mathura 4) Food arrangement in Agra Hotel and food 5) Food was amazing in Delhi hotel- although service was slow, it must be due to rush time and all the things were getting prepared when ordered What could have been better: 1) The driver partner 2) Service in Hotel 3) One day instead of Innova we got old and bad conditioned Ertiga, and the driver never ready to show us more than 3 points on that day 4) On next day although promised for Innova at 8.30 - we need to fight for it till 10.15 am 5) The location was good for delhi hotel but the road was too small and ca driver were not ready to come to hotel gate What I didn't like: 1) Cabs keep on changing 2) Few drivers were really pathetic- didn't feel like they were to show us sightseeing 3) Hotel Manager in Delhi 4) Hotel in Agra - location wise good, but condition wise really bad

    Gourisankar's 4 days trip to Delhi

    I would like to say that few Pros & Cons- Pros- Agent Tripsailor service in terms of quick reply and any support was good Cons- The hotels which were booked , except Vaishnodevi rest all were poor in quality . Not considered as 3 star hotel. I myself could have booked better hotel within same budget. Suggestion to Travel Traingle- I have done 2 trips with travel traingle ( International - Thailand & Domeestic - Delhi , amrtisr, jammu & Agra) , I find your support service is very good , but the hotels were provided not at all appreciated. I just adjusted with things as i had to stay for 1 night in most of the places. But please consider this as a critical feedback and work upon it .

    Chetan's 6 days trip to Delhi

    The package we got was worth and we had some good experience and had some bad experience from the package. Hotel provided in Delhi was not good i can say because the water was salty and it was very difficult to take bath, wash the face. No service in hotel and complementary breakfast was at its worst. It was so dirty the place we had morning breakfast. Hotels provided in Agra and Jaipur were good and we are happy with that. Best part in the package was the driver we had with us for this trip. Vehicle had some problem as it was old but still we were ok with the travel part. Special thanks to driver Inderjeet. Overall i expected the hotel provided in Delhi should have been taken care as we specifically mentioned during our booking.
