    Sriram Kasyap

    Chandigarh

    Sriram's 6 days trip to Kullu

    The hotel in manali was changed in the last minute due to some "shortcircuit ". But just infront of us, a couple were alloted rooms in the same hotel. Shifting hotel rooms isn't a pleasant experience. Even on the next day, after i've had to follow up with hotel, agent. Finally with travel triangle team stepping in, that they've alloted rooms in the hotel. I double checked with the agent while booking, if the hotel in manali was good. He insisted it was great. Atleast prior intimation would've been good from the agency or from the hotel. Apart from that the trip was good.

    Rajneesh Kumar

    Roorkee

    Rajneesh's 4 days trip to Kullu

    Hotel was changed at the last moment with no hot water facility in the bathroom. They are provided hand made water heater with no safety precautions. You have to fill bucket and bring to the living room for connection of heater. While booking they show 3 star hotel Snow Villa and then change to the Hidden Heaven cottage(Same name Malhaar Cottage). But view from the room is good. Taxi driver is good and cooperative. Over all trip was good.

    It was good, Check in for the customer should be immediate in hotel. Vehicle condition should be known to customer Delhi to Manali and Manali to Delhi traveling should be by Sleeper AC Volvo not by seater.

    Ambuja's 8 days trip to Kullu

    Driver behaviour was worst. Driver took us to the places where he could get more commissions. Stopped cab in the middle many time and went outside but didn't informed us where he went. We had to call and ask about that. Always asked us to go to those places which are not itinerary like solang valley is not good, vehicle will stay before 3 km either you have to walk or go via horse So go to hampta pass for that you need to pay extra to me. Same happened for khajjiar also he didn't took us to there by saying roads are closed.
