    • Trip to Manali

      Hiii myself Eshak. I booked a trip with North India tours and Travel to shimla and manali from delhi through TT. So about this trip i would like to share with other travellers and agents abouts some good and bad experience about this trip. Here are some points below: 1. Firstly the Hotels they provided us were very beautiful also the service of the hotel Royal Regency in shimla is awesome, the staff there is alwz at ur help but the hotel in manali i.e. Hotel Himalayan Heights is is also good but there service is hopeless. Please never choose that hotel. The only good thing bout the hotel is that it is beautiful and nothin els. The provide avg quality brkfst n dinner. You wont get the basic needed things u would expect from a hotel from them 2. Thou the hotels are good but both the hotels are far from the main centre so if u enter the hotel early you have nothing to do other thn watchin tv....or whatevr u do in idle time 3. The itinerary is a baseless thing. It wont be the same as shown in the itinerary. I made a mistake i dint checked the itinerary while on the trip and the driver also dint told me much about the places included in the itinerary. When i got back home i checked it again i saw in it many places which i dint visited during the trip...like, zoo, jaku temple etc etc. 4. I had an issue with the payment but TT agent solved it thou late and after my repeated asking fr a couple f time. 5. The agent Neha from North India Tour and Travel is good and polite.

      It was certainly a nice trip. Only thing I want to say i.e my tour cooardinator never felt to contact me during the entire tour. The hotels are ok. Manali arrangements were really good in comparison to Dharmasala n Dalhousie. The driver Mr. Raj Kumar is appreciable in all respects. Nice driving, punctual n very well behaved. And above all is a gentleman. Lucky to witness the fresh snow at Rotang Pass.

    • Trip to Manali

      Not too happy with the booking First the good parts: 1. Well-arranged trips, ample time to go around for seeing different places 2. Good hotels in Shimla, Manali, and Dalhousie. The views were amazing from all these hotels, and so were the rooms and the service. Special mention about the hotel in Dalhousie, beautiful place, amazing views and awesome food. The parents were very happy. 3. The driver was quite well mannered and had equally good driving skills Not so good and improvement areas: 1. The driver had very bad navigational skills, was uncooperative, especially when it came to asking for directions in a new place. It was strange as you would expect to get someone who will have good knowledge about the place where he goes almost regularly 2. This trip was customized which is why a lot of responsibility rested with the driver who was either unhelpful when it came to assisting or suggesting something to do, or was unaware of most of the things 3. The hotel in Chandigarh was unhygienic, one of the rooms had cockroaches roaming around, another had bedbugs and the third room was damp and smelled as if it always remains shut. My father had to stay up the entire night because of bed-bug bites 4. The hotel in Dharamshala was again old, dirty and unhygienic too. They tried to pass-off the water from the dish-cleaning area as drinking water. Rooms were shabby, blankets were worn out and dirty, furnishings were very old and shabbily kept. Not something you expect from an apparent 3 star hotel

    • Trip to Manali

      Some of the hotels are good but locations are not easily accessible particularly when there are aged tourists with you. As for New Delhi hotels, please check with the hotel authorities whether they really meet star standards. For example, Good Luck hotel at Delhi does not fulfil the standards of a three star hotel. They don't even have plates to serve the food. Manali Hotel was the best. Hotel at Shimla was very co-operative and extended all possible assistance. On the way back, New Delhi hotel was very good. In all the hotels, except Good Luck, the staff members were very helpful.

    • Trip to Spiti

      We have planned for 8 day tour where Nikita our tour coordinator helped us booking the Trip Will divide the review into multiple parts so that it will help others to decide(Hotel, Food, Places, CAB, On Tour Support) CAB Lucky(Lalchand Bhatia) : knows every inch of Himachal and the vehicle is Innova Crysta and the best we can expect. itinerary was well communicated to Lucky and that we need not to worry about our schedule On Tour Support : Nikita, helped us to prepare ourselves for the travel before a day what to bring for wearing and all and gave good support during the journey providing quick support by coordinating with cab driver and changing the hotel in case of venue changes in the last minute. Hotels & Food Our trip is 8 days long and we almost stayed in 7 different hotels 1. Shimla --> Rajat Hotel (Food is decent but Not the hotel ) shimla is a good place and they can get better hotel 2. Sangla --> IBex Camp (Excellent view and decent food with the surrounding nothing to complain about) 3. Kalpa --> Tab Exotic, ( Decent hotel with Decent Food) 4. Tabo --> Sidharth (Nice hotel with Nice food ) 5. Kaza --> Spiti Valley -> (decent hotel with decent food) then can do little better here as its also big tourist place 6. Chandratal --> didnt stay in Tenzin camp due to heavy snow 7. Manali --> Mountain View --> Nice Hotel with Nice food 8. Chandigarh --> Hotel Oscar Regency --> (Worst hotel and worst food) we stayed for night room is full of alcohol and cigarette smell Overall : Its great trip, and on the last day we got the snow fall my kids enjoyed it a lot and its beautiful journey. Precautions: Food is only Parotha, Rice and Bread available mostly, as it takes a lot of journey if you are going towards spiti better keep some snacks of your own and some pickles in case you miss your home food

    • Trip to Manali

      I had booked a 5day trip to Manali for a couple through Getz destinations. I had been promised in writing a Honeymoon Suite room with Private Balcony by them in Golden Apple Resort. However when we reached they the Hotel gave us a ordinary room. I raised this issue with Getz Manager Mr. Jatin on the same day and subsequently to his subordinate Kavita however to no avail. When I raised this with the Hotel they were clear that only a ordinary room was booked. I had raised this Travel triangle representative Mr.Nitish as well however he did not respond nor did he bother to come back. Clearly this was offered just to get the customer with clear intent of non-fulfilling. The dinner and breakfast was ordinary as well. I am writing this as I am upset with the way these guys choose not to respond as they already had the full payment. I demand refund due to non fulfillment of commitment if this is a professional company. My recommendation - do not choose Getz and do pay in full.

    • Trip to Manali

      I'm highly impressed with the level of services I've received at each point for our Manali trip by Travel Light (Tripmarlo) and TravelTriangle. From pocket friendly trip packages to easy payment process, from bus to cab boarding-deboarding, from hotel check-in to sight seeing. A special thanks to our travel consultant Kanhaiya Gupta who was responsive and personalised our travel package as per our comfort and requirements. Appreciate all the efforts he had put into making this trip easy and safe for girl travellers. Our cab pilot was punctual and shared alot of information about the place. A shout out to the Hotel Out Town located at the heart of Manali-Aleo with a scenic view of entire Manali at our feet and Snow top mountains at sky above. The hotel staff was very polite and generous. The breakfast and dinner served was delicious. This trip was only possible with constant efforts of your team and each step made it memorable. I'm extremely likely to refer them and book my next trip. Thank you.

      Travel agents were professional and helped in all the time until our tour got finished. I got this package with a very reasonable budget. Hotel stay and service both were very satisfactory. I had faced a few issues with cab driver (Puppy Shimla), who was not very helpful. Manali stays and its beautiful landscapes from the hotel view was a great experience.

      Mr and Mrs Negi both are very good human beings. We had a pleasant trip. Then never compelled us for payment. and Mrs Negi Instructed cab driver to dive carefully and safely. Hotel In Simla was very good but too far from the Simla (About An hour Journey). Hotel In Manali is good but we didn't like the food. They have delivered all the things as per the agreement. But we are not happy about Candle lite dinner. It could have been much better. If you want to have hassle free trip please go with drift 9 Travel Zone. But dont go with huge expectations. then you will enjoy the trip. Once again Thanks to Mr and Mrs. Negi.
