    Shantanu Paraswar

    Palghar

    Shantanu's 5 days trip to Himachal

    The quality of service of Tour operator was very good in terms of responsiveness. The hotel at Shimla was the best. Other hotels were also good, but selection can be better from approach wise. White water rafting at Kullu was enthralling experience.

    Ravindra's 5 days trip to Himachal

    It was great trip (Shimla-Manali) by availing cab service by Getz Destinations Tour Travel (Travel Triangle). Ashutosh helped to provide all required details for finalizing trip plan. He was available every time when I called him for my query. I faced problem on second day for availing cab but he helped during that time. I really appreciate his service and recommend him/ travel company to everyone. Drivers were good and polite and always come before scheduled time. Driving skill was amazing and always reached destination on time. Also they availed this service with proper charges. Once again thanks to Ashutosh/ Getz Destinations Tour Travel and Cab drivers/ Agency for making this trip memorable.

    Nicky's 5 days trip to Himachal

    This was our 2nd booking with TT, having booked a Maldives trip last year. We must admit that our himachal trip was decent, but we were not very satistied with our hotel booking in Manali (Royal Regency). We faced issues such as no elevator facility, no hot water availability 24x7 (everytime need to call the hotel reception to switch on hot water), on going refurbishment work on our floor which made it extremely noisy and uncomfortable. No tissues available in the room. No complimentary coffee/tea sachets available. Overall, we would not expect our stay quality to be so poor, having informed and paid as per our stay requirements. Kindly ensure that other customers booking through TT do not face such issues as the trust is broken. We hope to expect better service & disclosure on our next booking with TT. On the other hand transportation and hotel booking in shimla was well handled and hassle free. Shimla sightseeing and Rotang pass (booked separately)

    Pkraj's 3 days trip to Himachal

    [19/10, 22:20] Prahallad: Shimla ke nam pe app ka package ekdam bekar Raha. [19/10, 22:22] Prahallad: Mini zoo was closed. White flower house is a five star hotel. No entry. Only site view. [19/10, 22:27] Prahallad: Chini bunglow and Indira Gandhi tourist park is a joke. Nothing was their. And all the places are at one place and nearly 15 km away from Shimla. [19/10, 22:28] Prahallad: Jakhu temple is a nice place and u have not included in it package.

    Shaher Ak

    Bengaluru

    Shaher's 4 days trip to Himachal

    It was family trip for 5 days at manali and shimla during oct. Trip was worth it, nice location and driver was helpful and caring about the situation as i had 2 year kid. Overall the trip went well. Only concern i would like to suggest is the communication between agents and drivers regarding the itinerary and money. It was quite mood turn off during end of the trip when the driver was checking about the payment every now and then.

    Raghavendra's 8 days trip to Himachal

    Overall trip was great, few things which could have made the trip awesome. Travel agent - was expecting calls in between the trips to ask about the trip progress. Hotesls - Shimla and Amritsar hotels were ok. Both the hotels water problem in the morning. Grand galaxy was allocated to me in Amritsar however hotel staff changed that to Hollywood heights on arrival. Experience with Hollywood heights was not good at all. Cab and driver - really happy with both.

Such a nice man he was.. thank you travel triangle.

    Sunny's 6 days trip to Himachal

    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.
