    Authentic Traveler Reviews for Shimla

    View All
    • Trip to Shimla

      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 Shimla

      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

Simply saying lunch or breakfast does not help for the travelers. Travellers should be given information details regarding veg and non veg meals.

      Excellent trip ..... Happy with the appearance of cab driver and trip arrenger mr sumit and really enjoyed a lot. the hotel in shimla was good in decoration and quality but in very far from shimla main town and road conditions are very bad have to improve that point and after 10 pm when returning to hotel saw a tendua crossing the road so I was not happy with that matter and inform mr sumit at that time. Very bad response from kasturi as when ever called regarding any issue on trip she not even pickup my call also not call me back so very much disappointed with the company's contact person but walk holiday is fantastic and thanking mr sumit for his very quick response and help. Thanking mr jogindar and kuldeep for their humble and gentle behaviour. Other wise all are good but request you to provide a driver with voucher so that he can aware of the plan. River rafting and hotel golden Apple resort view.

      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.

    • Trip to Shimla

      Overall had a good experience except that the hotel provided to us at Manali was not as good as in Shimla. Also it took much more time communicating between all cities than mentioned in itenery like it took more than 10 hrs from Delhi to Shimla, more than 11 hrs from Shimla to Manali and more than 16 hrs from Manali to Delhi. It should have been mentioned beforehand. Our driver took us to a apple orchard near Manali which was very nice.

      We had a wonderful and beautiful moments to cherished. The agent we got contacted to was Samriti who was ever ready to answer all our questions and clrify our doubts patiently right from the very beginning like going through the different tour packages, inclusion and exclusion of more member to our team, payment issue and all. We feel lucky that she was there. The driver was from Karnal who was very good nad cool. The hotel in Shimla was nice. But the one in Manali was a little bit below our expectation. We had a great moment tht we will fondly cherished since it was our first family tour and nicely arranged by the Agent. Thank you Travel Triangle.Thank youAgent Samriti. Thank you Driver. Hoping to have another journey with traveltriangle soon
