      We did our trip to Manali-Kullu. We got the best quote from Ms Deepa, Thanks you very much Deepa. It was an awesome experience for my parents. The trip was very well managed by Mr. Neeraj, who was very helpful and supportive during our journey. Also thank you for Mr. Bhanu, who provided the best drivers: Mr Ravindra and Mr. Raj for our sight-seeing tours @ Kullu-Manali and Snow point respectively. Hotels were good and arrangements were proper. Enjoyed each moment of trip. Solang valley and Madi, Snow point I enjoyed the most. Thanks to North India tours for making my holidays memorable.

      Travel agent is careless we book the hotel for 3 night and at last night he change our hotel so it’s is difficult to shift from one hotel to other same thing he do in Shimla. Rafting , and sightseeing are awesome It is recommended to search for pricing of adventures activity before visit

      Best memories was definitely after we reached Manali. It would be absolutely wrong if I don't mention the cab driver Mr Khubram Singh, he was not only knowledgeable, he was always eager to help, show us new places, and also suggested local places, local food etc. The hotel New Harmony Inn is pretty new, has awesome views, very well mannered staff, and great service. The only point of concern remained that we had to wait 1 hr in Delhi for the Volvo bus to Manali. Also while returning, the bus which the travel agent Assure Trips provided was very bad in condition, no window curtains, no bottle holders even. When we complained to the SPOC person, he made some lame excuses, that curtains are banned in Himachal. Even tried to reach Travel Triangle so many times, no response from them. Send numerous text in the WhatsApp group, no reply. After much persual we finally got the bus changed. So that was a big relief and hugely disappointed when Travel Triangle tried calling me after we reached Delhi. Best memories was definitely after we reached Manali.
