Rajeev's 3 days trip to KulluI was on a family trip along with my wife and parents to dalhousie in month of January. Everything was good except last moments change of hotels and decreased pre-planned services. Due to heavy snowfall, roads were blocked hence unable to reach said hotel and then hotel were changed with some services being reduced. Also there was some places to visit under said itinerary but that was also not done. However, My Overall experience with Veena Travels was good and satisfactory.
Vijay's 4 days trip to Kullugood but some coordination with the local travel agents should be guided properly
Shyam's 4 days trip to KulluWonferful experiamce. No hurdles inbetween and everything went smoothly.
Ravindranath's 9 days trip to KulluHotel in Shimla (Hotel Rajat) was ok. Nice food Hotel in Manali (Shaina Mareema) was good. Food was ok. Hotel in Delhi (Apra Inn) was good. Nice Food. Horrible experience with tempo driver who made us walk 2-3 km from Shimla and also Manali hotels even if the roads were accessible towards hotels. Doesn't know how to talk to customers. Was literally fighting with us when we asked to cum near hotel. Didn't even consider ladies and kids. Very good support from Himgo travels agent Rohit, who supported us throughout the trip. We had to roam on our own in all the places, no guide and even the driver doesn't know where to go. Shaina Mareema hotel view was excellent. Nice support from Himgo travels agent Rohit.
Kiranks's 5 days trip to KulluTrip was awesome. Enjoyed a lot. Hotels were good and cab driver was nice person and new all places. Driving was good. Didn't had any issues either with hotel or the driver. Travel Agent was super. Gave us good hotels and driver. All in all a good, happy, enjoyable trip. I never had such kind of travel before. I will recommend all to get your trips booked from Travel Magazine if they are available for your destination. Travel Triangle is a best place to book your trips. They always gives you best quotes possible and most of which will matches your expectations. Trip was awesome, no second thoughts. Enjoyed snow in Manali and shimla as well. It was a never forgettable trip in my life. Snow games in Manali was the one that stood out of all where i enjoyed a lot with my lovely wife. Trip from Shimla to Manali was also memorable with scenic views.
