    ArHershita Wadke

    Ar Hershita's 5 days trip to Dharamshala

    We hired the taxi services from Turn on vacation for 7 day during our himachal trip. The vehicle provided was a good one and our driver was very helpful and a reliable person. He was very flexible and well tailored to our plan. The pricing for 7 day long trip was reasonable amount, considering with
    the state tax and tolls including. I would definitely hire their service if I plan any further visit to Himachal. Thanks for your service travel triangle.

    Rahul's 3 days trip to Dharamshala

    The hoilday package offered by the travel agency Travelepedia was economical and well within the budget. It was a 2 days & @ Nights hoiday package for Kullu & Manali. The travel agency offered us transportation to and from Manali. The hotel was a really awesome in terms of hospitality, ambience & fo
    od. We were provided cab for sightseeing and the driver was very cooperative. We had a gala time holidaying in Kullu & Manali. It was a very pleasant holiday altogether. I am satisfied by the services provided by travel agency.

    Shilpesh's 7 days trip to Dharamshala

    The staff at Hotel in Manali lodge where we were going to have special honeymoon candlelight dinner was rude serving us candlelight dinner. The videos shown to me of candlelight dinner were different than what they given us in actual. There was mismatch in itinerary provided to cab driver and me.
    Also check-in/check-out scheduled listed on Travel Triangle and actual check-in/check-out date for Hotel in Dharmashala were incorrect due to some technical glitch which resulted me in paying out of my pocket. Despite all these issues we were able to enjoy the trip but I was expecting more smoother experience.

    Kumar's 6 days trip to Dharamshala

    Service for the trip was good overall. Quick response from agent to attend any issue. However , the hotels were changed last minute leaving no room for options to change. Felt that quoted price didn't match with the standard of hotels provided to us( hotels with small rooms/uncozy locations with no
    outdoor view.Few Hotels provided were upto standard). Visit to Rohtang and adventures of Kullu valley made our trip pleasant and joyful. Cab driver was helpful and polite always.

    Rama Narayana

    Hyderabad

    Rama's 5 days trip to Dharamshala

    Hotels provided were very good. Courteous staff and the meal quality was very good. Rohtang pass with extra money was a good experience. The activities at Rohtang seems to be on the higher side. Shimla-Khufri activities were a total waste of money. We were clueless about the activities in adva
    nce. Overall an OK experiene but not a great one. I am told by Cab driver that AC will have to switched off when the temparature outside was around 40degrees as we have reached the Ghat section. Normally all vehicles these days are equipped with AC and it should be by default. I would not like to go for a Cab who does not provide AC. It is the customer's wish to switch it on or not. Booking agency should provide detailed information on the activities available and how to avail them and its associated costs. Somethings are know only after enquiring and on the day of travel or the day before which leaves us very little time to think and plan. Travel Triange should curate the packages based on origin of the customer and if it is his first time then additional information on the trip should be provided.
