    New delhi

    Akash's 5 days trip to Shimla

    I went to shimla trip with my wife with privet cab for to & fro from gurgaon, i would request you please go through below feedback which may make your trip more hassle-free & enjoyable : 1. Hotel Royal Vista : Hotel location was not good at all, in addition to that food quality & menu not even average. 2. Amenities like: Geyser & Room heater not works properly even in this regard hotel management also not bothered. 3. In that colder environment [ Snowfall was there ] I took shower with cold water because geyser was not working or it takes huge time to warm-up the water. 4. I took honeymoon package [ Room decoration & Cake ], the quality of room decoration & Cake was not up to the mark, that cake you can easily get Rs. 100 / 150 Rupees easily, epic thing hotel person did they put up the " TAG " of " Happy Marriage Anniversary " on Cake because of that I have been scolded by my wife during the journey. 5. Last but not the least, agent may charge some extra amount with the name of " LUXURY ROOM " but once you will reached hotel than you came to know there is nothing which distinguish the normal room with luxury one. 6. Most important is security concern: hotel manager will not allow you to do your entry in their register, since I am a frequent traveler from last 10 years so i understand the importance of proper check in process, it may also get you in trouble during the police verification. I believe that above few points will surely help you out in choosing your travel-agency, the only thing which was good during the trip that was our " CAB " & " CAB DRIVER " but that was also belongs to a third-party agency. that was not a " TRAVEL TRIBE " cab it was hired bt TRAVEL TRIBE from outside. In short for next time i must have to think about different source for my travel so that i can make my trip more peaceful and enjoyable with more luxury amenities in same cost.

    I had a nice time in Manali, everything was nicely planned loved the view from hotel, cleanliness and it was a luxury stay I would say, only thing was payment had to be made in cash and there was no atm nearby... making everything possible in our budget was good ... Would give a 4

    Mumbai

    Rahulswami's 6 days trip to Shimla

    Hotels in khajjiar was very pathetic .Would have been better if accomodation was provided in Dalhousie as it is just 22 KMS from khajjiar as there are less options of hotels in khajjiar. Panjhpulla was the only sight seeing spot covered at Dalhousie visit as Kalatop route was blocked due to snow. Cab driver had his problems of Fast tag payment at toll plazas which were covered by me. Just full marks for Dharamsala arrangements. Overall trip was good.Could have been better. Travel triangle should seek suggestions from those who have experienced the location which the customer wants to visit so that they can provide better itinerary solutions. Dharamsala visit only.

    Nandee's 4 days trip to Shimla

    This is my 2nd vacation booked via Travel Triangle. For my Shimla and Manali trip,I received 2 quotes from 2 different providers. I booked my 6 days 5 nights vacation with Mysterious Himachal Holidays for their professionalism. Agent Sakshi was too good in explaining me the quote. She clearly understood my requirements and gave me the perfect quote. The way she interacts, follow ups and co ordinating my trip was top notch. Cab drivers I got on my Shimla and Manali were also very professional and Supportive. Cabs were comfortable and clean. Everything went smooth as my planned. Thanking Sakshi for making my trip a pleasant memorable one. My Manali cab driver's communication skill was great. He took care of all my belongings during my paragliding and River rafting activities and gave us lot of recommendations which helped me to take better decisions on my trip.
