    • Trip to Greece

      I’ll start by summing it up: Everything of our trip to Greece was exceptional and beyond our expectations. Memorable Vacations (my travel agent) and Travel Triangle have made it extra memorable and special for us. Nisar and Krishna Sir from Memorable Vacations and Shilpa from TT, were extremely courteous and have taken extra care of all our requests and customisations. Nisar customised everything according to our wishes. He has taken care of everything from hotels to transfers to internal tours, etc. all while keeping our budget in mind. The hotels at all the places (Athens, Mykonos and Santorini) were very very good. The ones at Mykonos and Santorini were superlative in their location and view. The siteseeings and islands visits were all breathtaking with extremly eye catching views. Of course Greece is one of the most beautiful country of Europe so it tends to be little expensive. But if one can plan this trip 4-5 months in advance, then it can be booked at quite reasonable price. Food wise, Greece is a paradise for Non-Veg lovers. Greek Salad, Cakes & Bakes and Greek Yogurts are out of the world. Overall this trip was totally satisfying for us in all sense. In the entire trip we have not faced with any unpleasant experience. I’ll like to recommend Memorable Vactions (particularly Nisar

    • Trip to Europe

      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.

    • Trip to Europe

      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.

    • Trip to Europe

      Holiday aces Is team of professionals I can say that for sure. When i decided to go for a trip and submitted my inquiry with Travel Triangle I was handled well by the team.Holiday aces provided me the best rates possible.Meenu Goyal was very supportive and was available for us when we were traveling the best part about the company is after sales support it is not that they will take your money and you will never hear back from them.There was whatsapp group which was formed after the booking was confirmed where in I am particularly happy with the support I received from Sumit and AMit in operation team they gave me update every morning of my schedule that is one thing where i thought where in the world this kind of service is available. I suggestion for Holiday Aces is if they can bring down the prices and give more affordable vacations then customize though it was not a big issue foe me but they are loosing out on masses. Having said that I will always travel with Holiday Aces and would like to thanks Travel Triangle tema aswell for their support.

    • Trip to Europe

      I went on a 9 days Italy trip with my wife and 1 yr old daughter. Trip was planned by Shashank from I need trip. From the very first call, the itinerary seemed interesting and value for money. He took care of each and every small need of ours and modified the package as and when needed. We spent 4 nights Milan ( including day tour to lake Como and Lugano and one day tour of Venice ) personally felt that one day tour of Venice from Milan is better than staying in Venice. the tours arranged were excellent. 2 days Florence and 2 days Rome. The location of hotels were extremely convenient.. in the heart of the city, close to metro stations and numerous food options around. We didn’t face any challenges. Following are the points for improvement: There were tours of lake como and Lugano which allowed baby strollers that would have made it easier for us in the day long excursion. So for families with infants try to book those tours. The last tour.. vetican and colosseum one day.. was kind of hectic as we had to move from vetican to colosseum on our own. There were tours which covered the transfer as well. Overall it was a fabulous experience.. full marks for hotels , trains and flights. Specially hotel Axial in Florence.. it’s is located right in the center of the city where all important tourist places are 2-3 mins walk Thanks to your team for making it a memorable trip for us! .

    • Trip to Europe

      Rome Florence hotel, transportation and location everything was very good. But Venice hotel, distance between the hotel and pickup point, ease of transport was not convenient and not aware of mode of transportation in Venice. Rome and Florence everything was wonderful. Venice City was mind-blowing.
