    Zeeshanur's 5 days trip to Manali

    It was an awesome experience as there was heavy snowfall in kufri as well as Manali which is unlikely to happen in march. Travel co-ordinator Vinay was of great help throughout the trip. Driver Sunil has a great knowledge abt the area which proved quite helpful. Live snowfall in kufri and stay at kufri resort

    Shradha's 9 days trip to Manali

    We really enjoyed the tour. The tour was well planned. Our Car pilot was very polite, experienced and guide us throughout the tour. He deserves a speical mention here. Speical shout for Hotel Holiday Heaven at Manali. If you are visiting Manali try to get Hotel Holiday Heaven, the food is very tasty (veg only) and location is the best (very near to mall road). Finally the tour was only possible because of Devanuj Goel, who always manage our tour to his level best. Avoid Sky heaven resort at Dharamshala. Snow at Solang Valley at Manali.

    Sudatta Sarkar

    Kolkata

    Sudatta's 8 days trip to Manali

    Overall, the trip was good. However driver assigned was not professional. At certain places there were rash drivings. Coming to the accommodation, the hotels were well chosen. Especially the one for manali and dalhousie were the best with mesmerising scenic views. However for the hotel in dharmashala, the room was not provided as agreed before the trip and we had to face a lot of issues. Overall, the trip was memorable. However, would suggest improvements in terms of assigning good drivers, since thats also an essential part of the trip. Accommodation for manali and dalhousie was too good. Solang valley visit was memorable.
