    • Trip to Himachal

      I had gifted honeymoon trip to my brother and as per him enjoyed the trip like never before. Trip went on very smoothly since day 1 till they reached Hyderabad. The best part was agent Nikki who had followed up everyday to know how was the trip and day wise and had also asked for feedback in case of any inconvenience. She deserves 6star service and should appreciate her great service. I'd certainly recommend travel triangle to my family and friends Snow point was the best place in Manali and also hotels were fabulous. Driver was very knowledgeable with lots of patience. Overall since the day my brother landed at Shimla and the day he de boarded Manali every moment was memorable.

      I was not sure in the beginning of the trip as it was our first online booking. But yes it was safe and better. AMIT from journey dreamers have been most helpful since the very beginning. You can trust his words. Although there are few things that should be brought into light. Like the bus timings were mentioned 5:30 pm on the voucher but it departed at 8pm Also on our return we didn't get the same volvo. seats were not up to the mark and the condition were not very good. Specifically at night we were having trouble adjusting the feet and seats. There are two persons who made our trip easy and Comfortable. One is AMIT from journey dreamers. Who was always there to help us in any situation. Although at some points he handed over the control to other people like bus incharges etc who were not helpful enough sometimes. I am sure if Amit was there then we might not have faced any issues. And the other person is KARAN THAKUR, the cab driver. He was very helpful. Always on time. Waiting for us when we were late. Guiding us on every route about the sites and even adjusting according to the weather. He was very friendly and jolly.

    • Trip to Himachal

      I am 'just' satisfied with the services of Travel & Time , as they could not end my trip on a positive note. We traveled to Manali from Delhi and vice versa. The bus to Manali was very fine (Subhyathri travels) and the hotel named ''FOGHILLS'' was exceptional where we stayed for 3 days. The cab arranged was just ok as the person (the cab driver) was not communicating well and taking to the places acc to his convenience and always hurrying us for next locations. I said just ok because we landed back safely at bus departure location back to Delhi. Now comes the worst part!! Due to lack of communication b/w my agent and bus coordinator, i had to contact the bus conductor who was just an annoying figure (Shubham Travels). As the time of departure was nearing and my seat and bus confirmation was not given, i asked the coordinator to put me on con call with the bus conductor, who spoke these beautiful words to me...... '' uss madarchod ko bol ki uska seat number 3 aur 4 hein........... This left me embarrassed and with some difficulty i found the bus and while boarding again i asked the seat number (as coordinator told me its 11 &12 acc to my request for middle seat) an the guy tried to made me sit in 3 & 4, but i ignored and sat on 11 & 12. After all this nonsense, when i reached delhi bypass road in the morning, 1 guy woke me up and told its my destination. I knew delhi area, but he insisted me to get down and took out all my luggage from bus. In half sleep, i got down and noticed that it was an auto person who made me get out 25 kms away from my destination for his benefit. And those 2 bloody bus representatives was keep on watching this drama. Really, got very much annoyed and felt like after spending this much money, i was not even treated averagely. Dear travelers, think twice before booking, and make sure your agent keeps things on check.

    FAQ's of Dalhousie

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Since Dalhousie is a small town, walking is a viable option. That is only for enthusiasts though, the common practice is to get motorcycles or cars. Due to the temperature though, a car is a better idea than a bike.

    In terms of attractions, Dalhousie doesn't offer much. The nearby sites of Khajjiar and Chamba are must visits when staying in Dalhousie and so are the markets and the malls that the town was built around back in the day. Obviously, going to Dainkund is also a priority and there a few beautiful churches around the town as well.

    There are rooms available in Dalhousie from upwards of Rs.1000- Rs.8000. A fairly luxurious room on an average would cost roughly Rs.4000 a night and an average to decent meal costs in the range of Rs. 250- Rs.350. Therefore, an average but luxurious day in Dalhousie would cost around Rs.2500- Rs.3000.

    Regardless of whom you go on the trip with, spending roughly 3-4 days in Dalhousie is quite long enough. While it is a quaint little town and it is very beauiful, there are not many things to do. So 3-4 idyllic days spent in this small town with the beautiful scenery should be good enough that include visits to Khajjiar and Chamba.

    Dalhousie does not have many hospitals, the main hospitals in the town are the Civil Hospital and the Military Hospital in the Cantonment area. Civil Hospital is on Subhash Chowk Road. The number for Civil Hospital is +91-1899-242125 and the ambulance number is 108.

    The best time to visit Dalhousie has to be the summer months of March to May. The summer months are refreshingly cool here and it is a welcome escape from the heat. However, this is also peak season for tourism and it is quite crowded at this time. Winter, of course, is excellent for those who enjoy snowfall.
