Adi's 6 days trip to HimachalManali trip seems to be full waste of money I've lose faith on following your directions, driver was also not that smart to at least let us know what is best and what not... I've wasted quite good amounts of money with your package + by spending there in manali.. which could have used really well otherwise There's nothing seems to be best from your end coz none of them at hotel were showing up any courtesy to greet us well like it's just there job they were doing to justify there salary
