    Srinivas's 3 days trip to Shimla

    My Manali 3 days trip was screwed up by Travel Triangle and Bhavesh holidays. I hired a cab for 3 full days (4500/-) for local transport, but they forced me to spend only 4 hrs as first day, next day it was only to a limited trip and they were forcing me to go with their plan, they charged me extra
    2000/- for Shivu caves. You should be really careful with these guys. I paid 50% amount initially and thought of paying rest of the amount on finishing the trip, but they forced me to pay the rest of the amount before 5 hours, when I said I want to pay in the end as the internet connectivitiy issues, they threatened me to drop in mid of the road. Vikas from Travel Triangle is the guy who handled very roughly. Suggest to avoid using Travel Triangle,
