    • Trip to Himachal

      We had 4D and 3N stay in partriage hotel resort in manali and this was the most memorable trip. The best thing was the nature and greetings given by the owner of the hotel mr and mrs negi. We had very comfirtable and good stay there. Another most important and good thing is the food which we got. Its really good and you can't expect such hygenic home type food outside. They are always ready to prepare/cook extra items (if available) on demand as you might find less food items. In our case it was enough because you can't eat many things in such a place where temp alway be negative. They also guide for local sight seeing by giving suggestion as per their experience.

      Saritha from North India tours and travels was just amazing in coordination. She is the one who was with us in regular touch for all the updates regarding our Manali trip. She is polite, humble and very informative. We wish she should be accoladated with more incentives. Her works made us to have a very positive note towards TT and North India tours and travels. Thank you Saritha for making this honeymoon trip of ours a cherishable one. Thank you TTL.

    • Trip to Himachal

      Last week we went to manali. We found that camera was installed in our room. We thought to inform the same to hotel but almost all rooms are vacant in the hotel and only 2 people in reception and to keep our safety in mind we didnt inform. We cancelled our trip plan and left from manali. We people came from long distance to enjoy the trip. But due to this type of incidents we lost our enjoyment. We missed our happy moments and also spent additional accomodation and travel expenses. Only my money got wasted.

    • Trip to Himachal

      The entire trip was excellent. Everything was on time, no delays. Had an amazing experience. Jatin (our travel coordinator from Getz Destination) was super awesome right from the beginning. Stay in Manali was better compared to Shimla. Enjoyed much more in Manali, Shimla seemed overcrowded. Manali cab driver (Shiv) was a really jolly and proactive person. We enjoyed his company for the entire 3 days in Manali. The journey from Manali to Shimla (in a cab Swift Dzire) was a bit boring one as the driver was not much friendly. Sightseeing in Shimla, Kufri and the mall road was also good. I would recommend Getz Destination to my friends and family and would surely consider while planning my second trip to Himachal.

    • Trip to Spiti

      I had booked a trip to do the tribal circuit in Himachal comprising of Kinnaur/Spiti/Lahaul from Prince Tour and Travels towards 2nd week of September (nearly end Season). And I have a lovely memory of the entire journey. Also I must say that not only they are very wonderful people, but they understand the spirit of the a traveller. It has been a memorable experience with them. Special thanks to their head Mr. Sharma Ji, and Deepika for taking care of us. For fellow travellers, I have a suggestion, please travel in this circuit with atleast 2 weeks of holidays at your hand. - Waking up at Karcham Village's hotel (Rupin Resort) and the view from there was amazing. - Chitkul is yet another amazing spot - Trekking to view key monaestry from a distant spot (Recommended for photographers) - Lakes in the route is not to be forgotten. All of them are beauty in themselves - Kaza monastery morning prayer (8:00AM) try not to miss it!!! - The Grand Statue of Buddha at Lanza village, kibber village is an asset in itself - Chandratal camps
