    Mudit's 4 days trip to Dwarka

    Bhuj Hotel - Click - Great service with equally great location Dholavira Hotel - Rann Resort - Below Par services, we were the only ones staying in the resort hence they cut down on their amenities and activities. Cab Service - Driver had no knowledge of the area, he skipped couple of points which were mentioned in itinerary, and was cribbing when we took him to an impromptu point. However, the driving was decent. Travel Agent - I was liking the travel agency at first, but during the trip i totally lost all hope with them. Driver had no intimation of our itinerary, Secondly, the agency just gave me the itinerary what i planned looking up on internet and they do not do their research well. Had to miss Light and Sound Show at Bhujodi because of this carelessness of the agency. No follow up on daily basis which points driver covered or not. Only when we took cab to additional point the travel agent was all furious. Dholavira was a wonderful site and absolutely loved it.
