Dinesh's 5 days trip to LondonTrip not conducted due to corona virus , RS 20000 still yet to be received from your side.
Vishnukumar's 6 days trip to LondonIt was really great and a safe trip and through out the UK trip only one person she was always picking up all our calls and days schedules on time she was really helpful as it was our first time to UK but she really helpful thank to
Mudit's 11 days trip to LondonWe got UK package for 6 nights and 7 days from CRED. And it was the best decision of Travel triangle to assign my trip to be arranged by HubHoliday. Hubholiday are too good in planning and customizing the trips especially Yeeshu who plans itinerary has been diligent in doing so. Also post booking the service they provide is much better and should be appreciated. Visa services provided by them was also excellent and efforts by Yeeshu to pre travel was really excellent he takes care of everything related to travel period is commendable.The best part about them is you get your query answered in like less than a minute any time of day or night especially during travel in UK, Yeeshu was always available to help on days and even on nights. We we're impressed so much and one of my friend after viewing our holiday pics on social media booked a trip from Travel triangle immediately for his Europe travel even before we were back from our trip. Just few points customized takes care of everything but still we need to do basic homework like checking docs and validating all tickets provided before travel to make smooth trip. Thanks Hubholiday and especially Yeeshu for your entire assistance and effort and making our UK trip possible. Will definitely take further trips with them and recommend others. Once again thanks for making our trip smooth.
Neha's 11 days trip to LondonMy husband and I had an amazing trip to Switzerland this summer, thanks to Duniya Safari. I was researching online when I came across their website. I was unsure if I should even consider a travel company out of my home town, where I cannot judge their authenticity on my own. I spoke to Siddhanth, and the way he guided me in planning the itinerary, is highly appreciated. I recommend their service. Every inclusion in the itinerary was well explained and every service well implemented. I am planning my trip to Croatia with them already.
Arpita's 5 days trip to LondonParas from Hub Holidays was my travel planner. He had made a good package keeping in mind that my mother and me were travelling together and this was our first trip to London. With regards to Hotels, both were good and located in the center of the city which made a lot of sight seeing attractions accessible by foot for us. Also restaurants and markets were nearby which benefited us. Flights suggested was the best. Even the attractions were good . Also to mention here, the trip was worked out as per the budget requested by me. Thank you guys for creating beautiful souvenirs for us :)

Watchjanu's 14 days trip to LondonIt was one excellent service and memorable trip as I wanted to do a solo trip to Europe for 10 days. When I was searching for good packages through travel triangle I was connected to MK Holidays. One of their agent named Prabhjot Kaur contacted me and gave me an quotation. Later we discussed and modified and they customized it to my needs. The final quotation was perfect and I started my payments. For the whole visa process and financials Prabhjot connected me to Pratik who helped me for further procedure. I should really appreciate Prabhjot Kaur and Pratik for constantly being there for all my queries sometimes even after office hours. My trip went really well. The bookings made were just perfect and everything went went smoothly. Thank you Travel triangle and MK Holidays for such a memorable trip I'll cherish through out my life.
