Trip to GreeceHad the best trip so far. Travel Triangle in alliance with Pick Your Trail are through professionals and have made my trip extremely pleasing and a memorable one. There were instances where I could sense of a glitch, but the back-up telegram team were extremely responsive irrespective of the time difference and made sure everything was spot on as per plan. I did have plan B and plan C based on my previous tour makers experience, but then nothing came near to execution as everything went very well. I never expected, anyone be so prompt and responsive just on a phone app which made my trip extremely easy. Thanks to Apurva from Travel Triangle and Harish, Athul & Sashikant from Pick Your Trail. Kudos to you all.
Trip to GreeceI had very high hopes from the trip but unfortunately it did not live up to the expectation. The stay at Crete island
Trip to GreeceWe booked our holiday package for Greece for earlier this month. Mr. Shubham . Excellent services were provided by Mr shubham . He was available 24/7 on the trip to solve our query .Shubham Sagar from Travel Triangle was a great help.

Trip to SwitzerlandWe went for our honeymoon trip to Greece arranged by Centaur vacations - Kusum, Anil and Rishab. It was an awesome trip. The services of this travel agency are excellent, although responses needs to be more improvised and proactive, but overall experience was great!! Thank you Rishab for all the suprises and complimentary services which made our honeymoon trip memorable. Rishab and Team were available 24*7 for all the doubts. Even today after the trip is completed Rishab is still helping for all the queries/documents required for claim settlement. Looking forward to have many more trips organised by Centaur Vacations. Thank-you so much kusum and Rishab for all the planning and making trip memorable.
Trip to GreeceReally a very nice experiance as itenary planned by Travel Masters. All the hotels booked by Travel Masters are very convenient to reach... Very near to railway stations everywhere. We enjoyed a lot in complete trip. Thanks a lot to Travel Masters. Arpita... you have done a great job....thanks once again
Trip to GreeceThis is the first time we booked our trip with an agent, and we really feel it was a good choice. The trip was outstanding, more so because it was well-planned and we didn't have to spend a lot of time worrying over where to go and what to see (planning AND executing is a nightmare!). And this is where we felt you have really made a difference - all through the trip, we had a myriad doubts which were promptly answered and we were also properly guided through the entire trip. We also faced a few hitches because of our luggage which was resolved thanks to your team - it could have easily derailed our trip morale if it wasn't for your support. It was really nice having you watch our backs on these queries and issues. We'd like to personally thank Devaansh and Anupeksha for their wonderful support before and throughout the trip. You guys rock! We hope to book our next trip with you guys again soon. Warm Regards, Akshaya and Dhinesh
Trip to GreeceI am Mahesh & we booked a travel package from Travel triangle (Hub Holidays) & we got a decent package plan to visit Greece for my honeymoon from Shubham . Few unnecessary trips were added in itinerary that resulted in time waste, tiredness but yes memorable. The package was customized as per our budget needs and over that we got good guidance from Mr.Shubham.He is one person who talks with zero attitude and so sweet & wins customer trust/faith. Keep it up Shubham.
Trip to GreeceReally enjoyed the trip. Few things could have been better. For example, our cab pick up from the hotel to the airport did not arrive and we had to rush and catch a cab with a hefty amount. However, thanks to travel triangle and Pratik's prompt management we got the refund! The hotels in Amsterdam and brussels were excellent. Hotel in Paris could have been better. Also, we couldn't locate our guide for the Eiffel tour. It would have saved us a lot of money and headache if were informed about daily bus and train tickets that are usually available for intra city travel. Overall, really good service. Loved the Amsterdam canal cruise and the day tour to Bruges. The Lido show is a must if you are visiting Paris.
