    • Trip to Himachal

      Overall experience was good. Only before start of the trip travel triangle agent Ms Ankita Sinha never responded to my call. She immediately switches off her phone. I suggest please do not get in coordination with ms Ankita Sinha as at the start of the trip she will not respond to any of your call. Manali hotel service was good. Only device of the Shimla hotel name hotel applyn is not good. Also please send the itienary to driver before start of your trip. As he will say that this places are not considered in trips when the trip starts. Shimla Kufri Manali Solang Valley
