    Vpmunjal's 4 days trip to Shimla

    Everything is good except that before finalizing the package, its details must be made crystal clear. The client should not be expected to read the fine print. In my case, we had been told that we would be provided with Innova ac cab but did not specify about the seating capacity. As a result it w
    as very uncomfortable as we had to be on the road for 10 hours, I had asked for including sightseeing of our choice within a radius of 45 km from our hotel. This was overlooked and sightseeing was decided without our concurrence. This resulted in the cab driver asking for extra payment for one additional sight that we visited.

    Jitesh's 6 days trip to Shimla

    Journey from New Delhi to Shimla at night was very dangerous, as we followed some interior village route from Delhi to Haryana due to farmer protest. Please don't plan late night journey for other couples in future. Cab and the driver was very good. Shimla hotel was not up to the mark. Manali hotel
    was good. Overall, considering all points, I say my trip was memorable. *Include some adventure activities in your trip, it will help to get good feedback*. Adventure activities we performed in Shimla, Kulku Valley and Manali.

    Sarvesh's 8 days trip to Shimla

    Our himachal trip in feb last week was very good. All hotels were good and food was excellent. Travel agent Meenakshi was very good. I asked for changes in the itinerary multiple times and also asked for change in the hotel multiple times and she politely and patiently worked on all the changes. Cab
    and driver Raj Patyal was very good. Couple of minor issues.. 1. Kamna Hill Resort in Shima was exceptional in terms of hospitality, view and food but the location was not that great. The location is far from mall road and the road is also not good. Our driver was from shimla so he was able to understand the instructions from hotel reception otherwise it would have been a nightmare to reach this place. Even the driver was frustrated with the location of this hotel. 2. Snow Peak Retreat in Manali did have a balcony but there was no privacy or view. The balcony was facing the hotel. From the balcony we could only see other rooms and their balconies. There was no mountain view from the balcony. 3. While booking the package, travel agent Meenakshi had convinced me that cab will be from their company and not from any third party vendor but of course that was not true. One day before the start of the trip there was some confusion as to who exactly our driver will be. Initially one driver had called but later someone else told me that he will not be my driver. Then another person called. When I asked him his car number he said he will not come but his brother will come. Ultimately the mess was sorted out and luckily the driver who showed up turned out to be good and the trip went very well.
