Trip to HimachalOverall very good trip. Had a very nice experience in Himachal Pradesh. Hotels were good, food was nice but some basic facilities should be improved.
Trip to HimachalOverall it was a good experience but the food quality in the hotel was not good especially the worst manchurian dish. The solang valley awesome experience
Trip to HimachalThe arrangements were good, except for rhe poor state of the car... Ms.Ansh left no stones unturned to cater to our needs... Keep up the good work. The hotel that we stayed in Manali...
Trip to Himachal4 star completely for hotel Meghavan palace in Mcleodganj for rendering satisfactory services for one night stay. I would not like to give even single star to hotel Dalhousie grand for making our Dalhousie trip a tiring and painfully due to its poor quality of service plus defrauding us with downgraded quality of room categorybalthough we opted for deluxe. The mattress were so pathetic that we have to sleep on floor somplete night and on requesting hotel we were told that we can't provide the mattress .. even they can't able to arrange for sleepers ...will not recommended ... Mcleodganj
Trip to Himachalthe volvo bus experience was not comfortable, the bus broke down on our way to manali and during return from manali to delhi, the driver was quiet rude and did nt confirm that the bus was not serviceable. hotel was good but was under construction property. cab driver was good.
Trip to HimachalMy trip was overall good. For the first day on Saturday there was issues with the payments and driver and the agent (Dimple Malik) hasn't responded to my calls and msgs many times and I was so so upset but later on Monday she resolved the matters and the trip was overall good. Driver was very experienced and well versed with the conditions there in Shimla n Manali. He is a very good driver but not a good guide.
Trip to HimachalGreat trip managed by Sky High Manali Holidays.. I received your support as per my expectations. It was awesome arrangements handled by agent and they answered my queries on time.
Trip to HimachalWe had a wonderful trip. All the arrangements were hassle free and good. Only one thing i thought the road trip from manali to Dalhousie was too long and tiresome. It would have been better if we visited some other place near by instead of traveling on road. The Dalhousie place is awesome but it would be better to combine it with near by place instead from manali. Playing with snow with my love for the first time. Paragliding was mesmerizing.
Trip to HimachalHotel president is good, other hotel in Shimla was really bad. I really had worst experience with travel triangle agent.. He booked morning flight for my wife and evening flight for me. We thought our flights are in the evening and went to airport and by seeing our tickets we got shocked, we called agent and explained situation, but they helped... Finally I have booked flight tickets by own.... It was really unpleasant experience Hotel president is good, rontang pas is good, Shimla activities are good
Trip to HimachalI booked a trip to Manali from Pune with three nights halt in Manali in the last week. I got a quotation with itinerary from Travel and Time in less than 15 minuets which was so reasonable and amazing that I did not even feel to negotiate. I just gave a call to the number mentioned under and I was addressed by Mr. Amrit who was a very professional and politeness person, he has answering my all queries with transparency, that was based on logical answer and real figure, that’s why I was satisfied and happy and actually advised me in each and every aspect to give me the best. As I am from South India, I was unaware of the sightseeing places around Manali. He took interest by himself and gave me an itinerary including Kullu and Manali with Etios Car. Also I was surprise on that day because when I was entered the room I got a fantastic Cake on the table, which was indicating my Marriage Anniversary, while I never informed any person about my anniversary, After some time I asked to Amrit regarding this situation, How did you know about my Anniversary, He told me that during booking time on that day suddenly you told me only one time regarding this, that’s why I remember and did this arrangement, without any extra charge ( You can tip him if you want but neither he will compel nor its compulsory). Car Driver was very friendly & guided me every place perfect way. Actually the hotel recommended by him was little poor in google reviews and I requested him for a hotel change. He assured me that its very good and trust him in this and advised me to take it. Somehow I felt the confidence in his words and I checked in to the hotel and got everything was good, as he told that. I was very happy with the ambience of the hotel staff and the amenities provided at that reasonably low budget without compromising the quality of holiday. I want to say thanks to Travel and Time & also Mr. Amrit
