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.
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 EuropeHello Team Memorable, I visited to Europe trip organised by Memorable trip majorly Krishna, It was fully customized. trip was of 11 days in which I covered Italy (Rome, Florence, Venice), Swiss (Zurich, Interlaken, Geneva, Lucerne) & France (Paris).
