    Mr. Aman Grover helped me plan my honeymoon trip in Greece. It turned out to be an amazing experience. To quote some examples - based on my requirements, he suggested the property 'Celestia Grand' in Santorini for a night's stay..this was easily the highlight of my trip!. Also, whenever I reached out to him for any queries during my trip..I got prompt response. There were instances like these which made it a hassle free journey and my trip more enjoyable. Really appreciate the services!

    Our seven-day trip to Greece (Athens, Mykonos and Santorini) was excellently planned by Shubham Sagar . Right from the start he suggested the best hotels and activities as per our budget, guided us for getting the documents ready for the visa application and helped in booking the transportation as per our convenience. Be it in India or in Greece, Shubham was constantly in touch with us and facilitated our communication with the local tour operators in Greece. I am thankful to Shubham for his support and will recommend him to my friends for future bookings. Kudos to the Hub Holiday team.

    Harpuneet's 7 days trip to Thessaloniki

    We had been planning our trip to Europe since the beginning of 2019; however, considering my wife and I have really hectic job schedules - we could only manage to plan something in September. As much as we love to travel, we really find it extremely cumbersome to plan the whole trip on our own. We kept asking our friends for recommendations and that's when we got to know about Holiday Hub. Through Holiday Hub, we got in touch with Rohit who helped us a lot in planning our trip in the most comfortable manner. While we knew the countries that we wanted to travel to, we didn't have much idea about the destinations that we should cover. Thanks to Rohit, he recommended us the best of places at best prices! Rohit has great knowledge about different destinations in Europe and he could guide us on a lot of things with regards to those destinations. He also helped us in making all the prior bookings for the air tickets, boat rides, train tickets and sightseeing spots. While making these bookings for us, he was extremely forthcoming in recommending the best options to us. While we were planning the trip, we were facing many challenges in terms of budget, leaves from office and other personal commitments. However, Rohit always showed great flexibility and never lost patience! Thanks a lot Rohit for planning an amazing trip to Italy and France for us. Harpuneet

    Had 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.
