Diksha's 7 days trip to EuropeIn case of crises getting refunds or help from you guys is extremely difficult We just keep on following up
Nitesh's 7 days trip to EuropeI choose Travel Q Shop after discussing my holiday plans with their team as they seemed to have an expertise in the area of tourism. I had a rough idea idea what I want to do in Ireland and after discussing it with Mr Dushyant and Mr Praveen, they helped me me to chalk out a detailed itinerary and also quoted a very competitive price for the tour. I was a little apprehensive about driving a rental car in Ireland however, Mr Dushyant assured me that it will be a good experience. This was honestly the best decision as it was very easy to travel and move around in the country. Both Mr Dushyant and Mr Praveen were available 24/7 on call and on WhatsApp when we came across small hiccups during the tour. Unfortunately we had to cut our trip short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. When we decided to fly back early to India the Travel Q Shop team booked the tickets for us as late at 2:30 a.m. in the morning in India! Even though our trip was cut short, me and my wife had a great experience in Ireland. I would like to thank the Travel Q Shop team and especially Mr Dushyant and Mr Praveen for managing the trip and assisting us throughout. 10 on 10 for these guys and I definitely would recommend Travel Q Shop to my family and friends.
Akshay's 7 days trip to EuropeFirst of all many thanks to infinty & beyond travel for organizing mesmerizing and hassle free europe trip! Especially devyansh & sumedha you were very supportive also great suggestion of hotels and trip, the only tip is please arrange pick up and drop of travellers for particular day tours and destination (only with child and family). Visa travel documents should assembled and cross checked by the tour company . Else everything is five star . Travel triangle and the agent company got confused with final pricing , but it didn’t got in our way to the trip vouchers. Best moments were the trip to salzburg to hallstatt, although we arranged that trip ! Best landscape and snow in the march season.
Neha's 8 days trip to EuropeIt was an awesome trip to Europe (Italy, Venice and Barcelona). We really enjoyed a lot and had great experiences while on the trip. It was actually beyond what we expected from Travalot. Timings were perfect as per the places we had to visit. We covered almost all the main attractions or places we had to visit. Hotels were perfect with perfect ambience. Provided Cab service was good. It was my second trip arranged through travalot team and it was as expected. However, there was one miscommunication happened during the trip at the time of flight checkin which resulted in extra payment of Euro 110 (Rs 9000). It would be very nice of you if you can refund this amount as this was a mis communication from travalot side. Client does not know anything if he/she has to checkin early or late according to the airport regulations as he/she is not a frequent traveller. Travalot agent should pre-inform the client about this. Thanks to Travalot team.
Shivank's 7 days trip to EuropeI opted for europe trip there service was beyond expectation provided me more things then promised . Ankit was available 24*7 helped in each and everyway possible.
Shailesh's 7 days trip to EuropeStay at innsbruck,badgoisen and salzburg was wonderful. Magical countryside views from train was something to cherish in our eyes,heart and soul forever Snowfall at nordkette mountains was thrilling,beautiful and peaceful. Evening experience at swaroski crystal world was colorful and decorated pure snow covering badgoisen streets,trees,cars and everything was simply a dream. Exploring salzburg by walk as weather changes from rains to sun to snow,was artistically satisfying experience. Coordination for intercity train tickets,use of public transport(as language was german) could have been better.We missed our connecting flight as layover time was only 90 min(margin should have been more) and eventually missed our train.We had to buy last minute train tickets,which caused inconvenience on day 1. Stay at badgoisen in snowfall was wonderful.Evening at hallstatt was simply aweinspiring.
Harish's 7 days trip to EuropeWe had a great experience in Italy and France for our honeymoon. It was my first outside India travel experience and initially I had lot of concerns about how will things be planned, itinerary, food etc. But everything was so well planned by the Traveltriangle and Hub Holidays agent Vishal, that I didn't have to worry. Hotels were good, itinerary was well planned covering all major sightseeing and still not getting hectic. There was always a less travelling day followed by a full day sightseeing tour day. Airport pickups and drops added to the convenience, only the local travel was not covered and everything else was covered in the package. Also, the agent Vishal was always a call or message away in case we needed any help or guidance. The package cost was very reasonable compared to similar packages offered by others. Overall, it was a very well planned and personalized honeymoon trip at a very reasonable price. Rome sightseeing and Eiffel Tower visit were the two best experience on the trip.
Ajit's 7 days trip to EuropeDeciding on a place for our honeymoon wasn't a breezy task. Shell and pearl travels has been a great deal of help in terms of all the planning. Be it acquiring our visas or offering us the best deals on the list. We travelled around like locals, soaking in every inch of beauty that each country had to offer. At present, sitting at my office, feeling jittery about all the work that's piling up, a quick glance at the pictures from our trip gives me hope to keep going. We'd totally recommend Shell and pearl for your next trip. A big thumbs up to you guys.
