Trip to HimachalFirst of all thanks to Chand for being patient with me and my requests. Since it was my first solo trip I had a lot of doubts and questions about safety and stuff. The travel agents Akash and Chand made sure to check up on me everyday and if I was comfortable. Monu bhaiya, the driver made me feel very comfortable. He would talk about the places we were traveling to and sometimes if I wanted to take a detour he was very accommodating with that too. Overall I was very happy and will go for the mountain people again if I plan another trip in the north east. So I had a camp stay for a night in billing at the mountain top and was supposed to paraglide from there the next morning. To my surprise, I was the only girl in the whole mountains. There were groups of guys but no girl. However, I met a group of three guys and we got along so well. They took care of me and were very prot of me since I was the only girl. And the next day we flew together and ended up traveling for a short distance from bir after which we sadly had to part ways. But I made very good friends that day and will never forget that day.
Trip to HimachalWe have faced problem with cab driver. He was not given proper service. Our flight timing was on 12: 30 am on 14th and he dropped us on airport on 6pm on 13th april. We have to wait 6hr 30 min on airport for same thing He was picked up on 4:30 am. Also dropped on wrong airport terminal. He was not listening things like start AC, stop car for lunch break. Our trip was awesome except cab driver experience. Hotels and hotel service was awesome.

Trip to HimachalHi, The trip was good. The stay at shimla in honeymoon inn was more than expected. The cab pickup and drop was on time. The cab driver was driving rash. The drive was not comfortable. We had to be attentive all the time, as we had no idea when our driver will apply brake. The drive was like a roller coaster ride. The quote given to me had air conditioned car, but the AC was on only for 10% of the total journey. The driver refused to switch on the AC, even when my wife was not feeling well, she vomitted 3 times, while traveling from shimla to manali. The driver used to take us to the spots and adventure stall which were costly. Instead of helping us to select package at actual rates, the driver would suggest us to take a costly adventure package for his commission, saying this are union rates and fixed. This was not at all expected. The next stay at manali in snow flakes resort was disppointing. The stay was booked with breakfast and dinner. We got buffet dinner only on first day and for the next two days we were told to have a-la-carte with a excuse of not having enough people for buffet, even though we paid for the buffet dinner. The options available for a-la-carte were limited to us, due to which we couldn't enjoy our dinner. I felt like being cheated here. The stay at Chandigarh in Ramada Plaza was awesome, 5 Star from me. The food and hospitality was excellent. The travel agent assure trips and the car driver were not on the same page, when it comes to site seeing. The driver used to plan site seeing as per his convenience. The plan mentioned in the quotation was not followed. Overall the trip was below average even after paying so much.

Trip to HimachalThat was a great trip we had. It was our Honeymoon trip and it was made the best experience by North India Tours and Travels. The support and patience of our driver Mr. Mohinder was also great!! Best hotels and inclusions were provided at a very best cost!
Trip to Himachalnice trip but some point is missing like army museum etc Manali is best memorie
Trip to HimachalI 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.
