Mayur's 6 days trip to HimachalEntire trip was well planned and organised. Ms Ansh & Ms Anushka were so helpful. Especially Ms Anushka who was engaged with us from booking till completion of trip despite of she was no more associated with 1.5 billion inches company. Both hotels at shimla and Manali were excellent and scenic. Hospitality and food was also appreciable. Volvo bus from Delhi-Shimla & Manali-Delhi was good and comfortable. Only concern was driver and his cab. Driver was very rude and unprofessional. His driving was very rash. We complained to Ms Ansh for his behaviour. Her help regarding this was appreciable. Manali hotel's food was very delicious and rooms were nice. Though we weren't able to visit various locations in Manali due to snowfall and driver's denial to service.(other vehicles were traveling through that period also) Overall it was a great trip and we'll managed by tour company. Thanks to Ms Ansh, Ms Anushka. No engagement from Travel triangle guys during entire trip. Nobody even bothered to contact us during trip. Snowfall in both Kufri and Manali.
