    • Trip to Himachal

      Return Bus journey was very hectic because of the bus booked by Assure trip. Seats of bus were not at all comfortable considering the journey of 14-15 hours. Also the condition of bus was not good. I am not satisfied with assure trip because of this Bus and also they had not properly communicated with Hotel management. Further, I still not got ₹500 cashback which Assure trip promised. Mini Switzerland was awesome and also the Kwality restaurant's food was delicious.

      Overall excellent trip planned on short notice.......baring aside the payment issue they had with the driver (he said the travel agency didn't pay him so he will have to stop the trip on last day). The issue was settled in few hours. Manali and solang valley trip Both Hotels were with a awesome view

      It was a nice trip! However i do want to mention that Travel Triangle agent wasnt much active and I had serious doubts before going on the trip, unlike my last TT trip where the agent was very proactive and supported me to plan my trip. Anyway, the selected agent i.e Tanish Tours and Travel managed my trip really well. The resort stay was comfortable, served good food and staff was helpful and polite. The cab driver was also very polite. Overall a good trip and we enjoyed our stay.

      After reaching Shimla there was a little bit inconvenience as we had to travel another 50 mints by cab to reach the hotel after our overnight journey. But apart from that we had a fantastic experience. The hotel in Manali was superb we had a three star experience. Though the car provided to us was Alto which was not that comfortable the driver was really a nice and helpful guy and guided us in a proper way. Overall the experience was really nice and the agent Ms.Rennam had properly coordinated the trip.

      We enjoyed our trip with Guruji though there were some communication barrier with our cap driver who can not speak English but things could be eventually solved out. We have faced unexpected problems during our visit to Manali; one member lost her purse and passport and the other got a stray dog bite while walking in downtown. But with our skilled and supportive driver despite limited English, my friend's passport could be located and eventually being picked up on the way of our next destination to Amritsar, thanks god. The member who got dog bite could reach to the public hospital in Manali for treatment. So thank you to Mr. Mukthiar, the driver, for the good job. I also like to thank you Avinash and Rehka for their support and fast responsive to our questions and needs from the beginning through our itinerary. I will definitely come back and choose Guruji Travels for our next trip.
