Trip to EuropeGreece is an amazing destination indeed. Everything was arranged in a very comfortable manner by Amit. I really appreciate how well he had planned it. Best moments were in catamaran cruise in Santorini. We had barbeque in the middle of the sea.
Trip to Greecethe trip was well-managed. highly recommended to book through TT/Memorable holidays/Ramayana group.
Trip to MaldivesAwesome trip to Maldives!! KesiaTravels did a fantastic job planning our trip to Greece! I was recommended to Travel triangle by a friend who had plan a trip several years back. Saloni specializes in Maldives and has suggested us a great package. I am generally a "Traveller", however, in a country like Maldives, and with limited days, Saloni really made all the difference in developing a well thought out plan. She maximized all our time. Every detail was arranged for us with the best of drivers, tour guides, and hotels. I really trust Saloni and Kesia Travels and would certainly seek her advise again for my next trip. one word to say it's a " Paradise and heaven on Earth".. we really enjoyed our honeymoon on the Dreamland "Fushifaru" Maldives
Trip to GreeceOur trip started from Rome to Florence and Venice. The trip could have been much better and our one day to Tuscan village was ruined because of late info from agent. There were so many things which could have been included like museums, art gallery and so on. The place is worth the visit but nobody informed us about commute system in Venice and all the points were very far from hotel .The services should be improved definitely if we are spending so much money and special arrangements should be done for honeymoon. Marina da Pisa Beach day out which we did by our own because our Tuscany lunch and day out was cancelled due to agent late info.
Trip to GreeceThis holiday was planned in a very short span of time. Special thanks to Rohit and Prashant in helping us out get the best deals throughout the trip. They were always available on call and whatsapp even during the entire duration of the trip. I am sure even if I had self planned the trip it couldn’t have been better than this. Greece is a beautiful country and there are plenty things to explore. We had a mix of adventure, history and romantic destinations on our itinerary. In all it was a good trip. Athens to Mykonos cruise trip.
Trip to GreeceThe entire trip was very well organized. Garima helped us throughout the process - customizing our itinerary, suggesting places to visit, booking tickets as per our request, and providing assistance in the Visa process. She even helped us with our queries when we were in Greece. The hotels booked for us were simply superb. The hotel staff at Athens was not too friendly though. The sightseeing tours that were booked for us were very nice and hassle free. We faced no issues with pick up/drop, except for the pickup at Santorini but that too was because our ferry reached late, and it was handled well by the Destination Services staff. The itinerary had a perfect balance of activities and leisure time. We enjoyed the trip a lot. Kuods to Garima and Eji Travel Solutions for organizing such a nice and memorable trip for us! Thank you!!
