Trip to EuropeI took help of Vacactions Madcap for planning my trip to Italy and France with my wife. Amazing planning done by Saurabh and his team. Timing of flights, selection of hotels and their location and other guided tour was excellent.I wish the bond with Vacations Madcap continues for our future trips. I would strongly recommend Vacations Madcap for Europe trip.
Trip to EuropeWe had booked my honeymoon trip to France and Italy through Hub Holidays. Despite being a package tour, we had the complete independence to chose my itinerary. The hotels provided were just awesome, especially the ones is Venice and Rome. Our hotel location in Nice and Paris was also awesome. The hotel staff in Rome was so courteous that they upgraded us for a complete apartment with full amenities. To my amazement, it also had a terrace with it. Speaking about Hub Holidays, I have never had a better travel agency doing job for me. They were quick and generous while responding to any queries or problems. Keep up the good work guys. Also, I dropped my passport in Disneyland Paris and Hub Holidays helped me in getting it back and made me feel relaxed even though I thought I have lost it. Yeeshu and Prashant were too good.

Trip to EuropeI don't know how should I start but from the planning of the trip to the come back to India you guys(especially Yeeshu@Hubholiday.com and Prashant@hubholiday.com) helped us a lot. We faced visa issue from the France embassy as they held the wife's passport for an unknown reason that made us worried about the trip but with the support of your visa assistance team we got that in time. The trip was very well planned. We explored the Paris(the whole city With Hop On Hop Off, visited Eiffel Tower (Amazing experience), Disneyland), Lucern, Bern(as we got the spare day that we utilized), Zurich in and had a very great and memorable trip. A big Thanks to Yeeshu, Prashant and your team for providing the excellent arrangement and support throughout the trip. I would love to have another trip with HubHoliday in future.
Trip to EuropeI went to France, Switzerland and Italy. I got a very competitive pricing from Hubholiday. They provided very nice pre, post and on trip support. Thanks Yeeshu and Prashant for your efforts to make my trip memorable. They even provided support for information not part of package such as best option to buy sim. I really liked hop in hop off bus in France and Italy, it was a great way to visit major tourist places in less time in a cost effective manner. Swiss pass in Switzerland was also great I could travel anywhere in Switzerland via it. Tip for first time travelers - make sure you know all information in detail, less vegetarian options are there specially in Switzerland so you can buy fruits, chips, etc from there or bring from India, be well before time on famous monuments, make sure to take care of your stuff to avoid any issues on the trip.
