Himanshu's 6 days trip to GreeceMe and my wife booked the complete package from Travel Triangle, TT managed to book the complete and the itenary and details were well articulated and details. the onsite support which they offered during my travel as well as very nice. Best part of the Trip was the Rome and Venice. Look the plan and travel to foreign destination via TT.
Bhavsimran's 12 days trip to GreeceI was very skeptical in using and trusting Travel Triangle at first since it was my first time I was trying my hands on their website/app. I was shared with quotes and contacted by various vendors associated with them and at that point I took them lightly. What needs attention is how Vikas( from Travel Masterz) was able to brilliantly modify, customize do all the permutations and combinations to match almost all of my requirements. ( unlike other tailor-made offers) Vikas backed by Arpita, had made my entire process painless and effortless right from choosing the right destinations, hotels, visa assistance, designing the itinerary and had been guiding for each detail as possible and provided friendly advice beyond being professionals. Most importantly they had brilliantly helped in fulfilling all my requirements and kept the budget optimized which has been unbelievable. Both had been constantly in touch on whatsapp if everyone was going well. It was our honeymoon trip and thanks a ton to both VIKAS and ARPITA for providing us this great experience in Italy (covering Rome,Venice,Florence,Milan). Best wishes for the entire team of Travel Masterz
Hinita's 4 days trip to GreeceThe trip was most enjoyable thanks to the services provided by our travel agent Shubham of this tour company. Our agent Shubham was very attentive to our wishes and interests, and arranged a schedule to meet our needs. He was very patient, and made adjustments to our schedule as required. During the trip, he provided excellent coordination and support. This included helping with tracking a checked bag which did not make it with us on a flight connection between Madrid and Porto. All of the private drivers and guides was very professional, punctual and considerate of our interests, needs and comfort. We cannot overstate how pleased we were with all of the services provided. We feel like our amazing family trip to Spain (Barcelona, Seville, Cordoba) and Portugal (Porto, Tomar, Sintra, Lisbon) actually began when we started working with our travel agent six months prior to our departure date. He consistently followed up with us to understand our interests, priorities, likes and dislikes, in order to create a wonderful itinerary that satisfied our entire family. Even our last minute request to add a stopover in Tomar on our way from Porto to Lisbon was handled expeditiously. The private guides that took us around in all of the cities we visited were top-notch, hotels selected were comfortable and conveniently located near the city center, drivers were on-time and friendly… Our travel agent Shubham was also very responsive and helpful in giving us advice during our trip, especially when we encountered some unexpected problems such as a lost luggage during airport transfer.
Jan's 7 days trip to GreeceThis travel company was great to work with and the trip planner Shubham was very helpful, making suggestions and fitting the activities to the kind of trip we wanted—some structure without being scheduled every minute. The tour guides in Prague, Austria & Vienna, and Budapest were excellent, with a great command of information and history. It was particularly interesting to hear about their experiences before and after the Iron curtain. Our guide in Prague was amazing . Shubham and prashant were great in there services . One suggestion I’d make in Budapest—-it’s really too big to do a walking tour and see much in half a day. It would be better to use a driver for this half day tour to save time. We wound up only seeing Buda due to walking. The hotels provided by shubham were all very nice with great breakfast buffets—appealing to many cultures, especially the hotel in Vienna. All the drivers were prompt and friendly. We loved it and are already planning the next trip from Hubholiday !
Prajna's 7 days trip to GreeceThanks to TravelTriangle for making our honeymoon trip to Italy one of the best trips of our life. The entire trip was planned flawlessly. The cab was waiting for us when we reached the airport and all the bookings were made in advance. Not just that the trip was so efficiently planned that we could tick all the activities we had planned. It was so well organised taking into consideration the arrival, departure of the trains and giving us enough spare time to explore the cities on our own. I sincerely thank TravelTriangle for making this trip one of the most memorable trips of our life
Gaurav's 10 days trip to GreeceThis is my 3rd family trip with Duniya Safari. They were extremely helpful in customizing our trip to our requirements. It was the trip of a lifetime and we cherish every moment of it. Our trip was really well planned in terms of accommodation, commutation, sightseeing and a combination of best of things. Ms. Mayuri handled everything exceptionally and was available 24*7 for any query that we had during our trip. The best part of this experience is the daily updates that we received every morning. We highly recommend Duniya Safari for your next trip.
Prashant's 7 days trip to GreeceIt was a wonderful, memorable trip. The support and services we received from our Shubham . Our agent shubham was incredibly patient, answering all our questions with grace and interest. He and his partner prashant are extremely knowledgeable about travel to Turkey. We were so impressed with the services on the ground. We believe they assigned their best guides to us, since each of them went out of their way to please us. Turkey is a multi-faceted country with a rich history, and we all came away knowing so much more about it than we imagined. All of the services were well coordinated, including the four intra-Turkey flights we took. All transitions went as smoothly as possible. All in all, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to anyone who was interested in traveling to Turkey! Thank you again shubham sagar and prashant for such a great trip .

Sonia's 4 days trip to GreeceThis was our first trip to Europe planned by shubham sir and Pooja mam . Shubham was there with us from starting of preparing of itinerary till end of our trip . I decided to take an extended (7 week) vacation through Europe, visiting 4 countries and 13 cities, with various friends coming and going throughout my travels. The trip itself was complex, with the added intricacy of the various desires, personalities, budgets, and availabilities of my traveling companions. Despite the unique nature of my trip, the travel agency managed to plan an outstanding, memorable, and unique vacation for all of us. As a young woman partaking in a multi-city trip (some parts solo), I wanted the vacation to be stress free and safe. The representative Shubham sagar I worked with, planned an itinerary that required zero worry, planning, or stress on my end. Throughout my travels, I knew with confidence that I wouldn't need to worry about transportation or navigating a foreign city on my own. Most importantly my travel representative provided me with a local contact in each city who was simply a phone call away, available whenever myself or a traveling companion needed an issue resolved promptly. Furthermore, because of Shubham vast experience, I was able to visit cities I otherwise would not have while staying in beautiful, boutique hotels. Most impressive, however, was the agency's ability to plan a trip for all of my traveling companions with such varied budgets and interests. Each friend who participated in this trip was more than pleased with their segment of the vacation-- many recommending the agency to other friends of their own soon afterwards. Because of the hassle-free nature of the trip on the part of this agency, my friends and I were able to relax and truly enjoy the experience of being in each unique city.
