Prabhakaran's 7 days trip to EuropeI had used your services for my honeymoon trip to Europe for 10 days. Mr.Yeeshu Dhiman was very helpful right from the beginning by suggesting places to visit, planning the itenary and helping with the visa. Was a wonderful experience with no hassles and every query and grievance was handled professionally and immediately. Keep up the good work. Will use your services in the future too.
Axat's 7 days trip to EuropeOur experience with Shubham and this tour company has met and exceeded our expectations from day one. Upon contacting Shubham, we were asked to fill out a form detailing the length of our desired stay, countries and cities to be visited, ages, and brief descriptions of our interests. Within days, we received replies from agent for Italy, who gave a brief overview of their thoughts on filling our needs. We immediately saw that this tour company had a great feel for what we were looking for. We then worked with the company by email through several iterations of the plan. Initially, we were seven of us, then nine, and finally seven. The travel planner was responsive to those changes as well as a desire to add Cinque Terre and Rome to our Tuscany Tour. Shubham chose only the best hotels, guides, and drivers. All hotels included wonderful breakfasts and were very well located for getting around on our own after our planned tours. We were allotted enough free time to either rest up or hit shopping or take a second look at something that realy picked our interest.

Sandip's 7 days trip to EuropeHad a wonderful trip... returned with fond memories...thank you and duniya safari for the excellent arrangements...would have liked to have better and detailed information about the individual tours ( places to visit, when and if they are closed, entry fees if included in the tour we booked) included in the itinerary provided by you so that we could make informed decisions to visit or not visit such places as the time was limited and we had to see a lot of places in the hop on hop off city tours. Not all the sites in the city tours are worth spending time. As most of us travelling to the said cities for the first time. Thank you.

Tanuja's 6 days trip to EuropePlease find my rating below (out of 5 ) and comments at the end 1. Hotels: 4 (the hotels were amazing apart from the last one which was a little less amazing then the other 2, hence the rating of 4) 2. Cab drivers : 5 3. Services of travel agent : Shalini assisted us from the start of the trip till the end like a pro. Even with such a fussy being like me she showed so kuch patience and had all the information. For my fathers first solo international trip i found her very dependable and trust worthy. What ever was promised was delivered with amazing service. I recommend shell and pearl holidays. Looking forward to more such trips with you 4. Overall star rating :5
Payalduseja's 10 days trip to EuropeOur recent vacation to Switzerland and France is one we will never forget! Shubham and Prashant made planning our honeymoon a breeze considering our busy work schedules. We were connected with Prashant from HubHoliday who specialized in our desired countries and worked directly with Shubham and Prashant. Together we discussed our needs, time frames, "must see" landmarks, budget,etc. in which Shubham used to create an initial itinerary. She provided valuable advice in which we used to perfect and finalize our itinerary. A month before we embarked on our trip, we received all needed materials. Everything from a master list containing hotel/activity confirmation info, addresses, etc. The Vouchers also contained maps, tickets, tour information, and other useful details. We will strongly recommend HubHoliday for our future travel .
Pranali's 8 days trip to EuropeSo I had the most amazing and memorable Italy trip with my Family and all credit goes to Yash and Pawan from HubHoliday. Yash made the best and perfect plan for us where we could cover all the desired places. He was very cooperative throughout. He guided us and gave each and every information about the destinations with details! Until the end of our trip he was in constant contact with us. Cannot ask for any other better planner!! On the other hand, Pawan was the best in getting our visas! He guided us with each and every required document and answered our questions patiently. And tada! Our visas were with us within 10 days!! HubHoliday for us is the best so far and looking forward to plan more and more trips with Yash. :)
Mrsahebali's 5 days trip to EuropeIt was really good & memorable experience. Travel agent took care of everything staring from our day tour time, driver details and was sharing the details a day before in Istanbul. Hotel staffs were very nice & professional and were ready to help for any inconvenience. Really impressed with the way travel triangle coordinated with Istanbul counterpart agent. Great thanks to uday, prashant, visa team for assisting and helping us from beginning. Trip to bursa, cable ride on a snowy weather, enjoyed a lot. Cultural trip to Haziya sophia and blue mosque. Bosphorus trip on a cruise over two contients was really fabulous. Good gesture of hotel staff to upgrade to better and big room when our room's AC was having problem
Dheena's 6 days trip to EuropeAmazing planning and organization by traveler members. Also, they assign an agent who works closely with you in helping u showing what's best to make trip great!!! A Big Thumbs up
Ishan's 7 days trip to EuropeHad a great experience with travel triangle for my trip to Europe. Everything was planned well & executed. Received daily updates from the Duniya Safari as well. A few sugestions for improvement: 1. A shared gondola ride was booked which was not mentioned in the itenary. A better clarity can be given beforehand. 2. Hotel in Florence was pathetic. A real mood spoiler i would say. Not at all a 3 star level. Was a residence instead with no one at the reception ever. Would suggest not to book for any other client ever. Had a great trip altogether. 1. Hop on hop off tour 2. Hotel in Rome (Highly recommended)
