      We booked himachal trip of 5 days through travel magazine.I would not recommend booking through this agent because the last day driver was very rude and harsh it was really a bad experience to us.Lot of miscommunication and delay after payment of total amount.Hotel rooms were good but very far from main places and the hotel Lotus inn river view in manali does not have lift and they gave us room in 3rd floor.My hubby got leg operation done a year back and we felt it very difficult to claim the stairs everyday thrice(NO BUFFET in the hotel).We paid for Business class bus and he offered normal bus one way the bus journey in that bus was horrible.Agents know that the hotels does not allow early check in though they wont let us know.We paid extra 1000 per room in shimla for 3 hours early check in.

    • Trip to Shimla

      Hi, Myself and my wife were on a trip to Himachal ( shimla- Kulu manali- Dharamsala- Dalhousie) for 8 nights and 9 days. Let me give feed back on everything . We paid huge amount for this trip , but what we got is not as per our expectations. 1) Hotels : Hotels in shimla and dalhousie and dharamsala are far from towns. And in shimla literally it took hell lot of time travelling to hotel and city in the huge traffic we have there. Food in shimla and manali is not as good as we expected. But dharamsala hotel is nice in all aspects except the distance . And I am not sure how the selection of hotels from either Travel Triangle or travel agencies happen. 2) While paying money or on itenary you do not mention any details on hill view from rooms , but later we get normal rooms with no hill view. If we ask we get reply that itne pise me itne hoga. After spending 54k just for package I don't think any customer thinks on spending 3-4 k on hill view rooms. Being in a closed rooms does not make any sense after travelling that much distance. 3) And on the travel, most of the things on itenary need us to walk or go through horses and all for which we need to spend again, u should clearly mention that on the itenary that those cant be reached by car. 4)most of the travel is simply wasted on mornings for travelling between Delhi- Shimla 12 hrs, Shimla-Manali 9-12hrs, Manali- Dharamsala 9hrs, Dharamsala- Dalhousie 4-5 hrs, again Dalhousie-Delhi 11-12 hrs, so I cam see almost 4-5 days are completely wasted on travel. Rather you should come with a good plan of organizing the travels by night and arranging local sight seeing something differently. 5) Again on the local adventure activities I can see the local authorities demand huge money with out any proper rate . Travel agencies should have tie up with some of the adventure activities organization's and provide coupons for us for normal price. We didn't perform any adventure stuff due to the huge price they demand. 6) About Driver: He is very nice, professional, humble, good and experienced on hill side driving. 1) Manali Rohtang pass , ofcourse again need to spend huge money from my pocket as there is no proper plan from travel agencies. 2) Natural beauty of Shimla and Manali .

    • Trip to Shimla

      The trip has been amazing as it was planned perfect by the team. Everything went smoothly hotels Cab Driver and the local guides were all good. The only thing you have to provide information earlier about the expenditure we may get because of local places and adventures as you are aware with local guides. That was a huge burden but if it is premeditated we would be ready for that . Thank you for the memorable days. Kullu River Rafting under heavy Rain. Shimla Hotel location and the climate. Manali Rohtang Pass. Travelling is the only thing we have not liked but it was unavoidable.

    • Trip to Spiti

      What was intended to be a soul searching trip turned out to be a worst nightmare. The travel agents were pathetic in handling their duties. There was absolutely no communication from their end w.r.t the change of accomodation or the reporting time unless asked for. There was mismanagement from day 1 till the last day of the trip. The accomodation on the last day in Shimla was horrible. There were heaps of hair on the floor and even the dining area wasn't clean. Only the 4th day sailed smoothly. Addressing the elephant in the room - convincing the travel agents to take us to kunzum pass was an uphill task (inspite of the place being included in our itinerary) 2 weeks before the trip the travel agent informed us about ruling out Chandraral lake, kunzum pass and rohtang pass from our itinerary. Chandraral lake and rohtang pass exclusion was understandable as it was subject to the opening of the roads, whereas, there was no proper explanation for striking out kunzum top when there were other tourist vehicles visiting the same. I constantly kept in touch with Ambika to include the visit the kunzum pass and she assured me it would be done until the day before the trip began. As soon as the tour started, all the co-travellers insisted on visiting kunzum pass and communicated the same to the travel agent. Ambika assured to get back with the update every single time, but failed. Finally, before beginning our journey to kaza from pin valley, we had to take a call on visiting kunzum pass otherwise it would've been impossible to cover the other places in kaza as well as kunzum pass within a period of 2 days. Even after reaching kaza, there was absolutely no response from the travel agents and we literally had to stop our vehicle on the middle of road to know the status of our trip since we had no idea about how/where to proceed. The travel agents kept giving every possible reason to not take us to kunzum pass. When I had an altercation with of the supervisors, he threatened to terminate my trip. He made absolutely no sense when I was just asking for what I had paid for. If they really had the intentions of taking us to kunzum pass right from the beginning, they would not have waited till the last minute and given multiple reasons for it to not happen. The itinerary that was approved by me on travel triangle is different from the final updated voucher that was followed for the last three days of the trip. I hope travel triangle chooses their associations wisely and not ruin the trip that people dream of for months together.

Before the trip North India Tours & Travels executive Saritha explained everything in detail about travel plan & she managed well in booking the hotels, arranging the cab and all the facilities. On-trip Neeraj coordinated well. Provided Hotels are very good & having good view to enjoy the nature. The cab driver was very polite and was very punctual but he missed some places that are mentioned in the itinerary. Overall the trip was awesome & memorable.
