Samy's 5 days trip to ShimlaEvery thing was well managed driver was good on time hotel was also good would look forward for other destination Excellent trip was happy with the agents n everything managed
Mayur's 6 days trip to ShimlaEntire trip was well planned and organised. Ms Ansh & Ms Anushka were so helpful. Especially Ms Anushka who was engaged with us from booking till completion of trip despite of she was no more associated with 1.5 billion inches company. Both hotels at shimla and Manali were excellent and scenic. Hospitality and food was also appreciable. Volvo bus from Delhi-Shimla & Manali-Delhi was good and comfortable. Only concern was driver and his cab. Driver was very rude and unprofessional. His driving was very rash. We complained to Ms Ansh for his behaviour. Her help regarding this was appreciable. Manali hotel's food was very delicious and rooms were nice. Though we weren't able to visit various locations in Manali due to snowfall and driver's denial to service.(other vehicles were traveling through that period also) Overall it was a great trip and we'll managed by tour company. Thanks to Ms Ansh, Ms Anushka. No engagement from Travel triangle guys during entire trip. Nobody even bothered to contact us during trip. Snowfall in both Kufri and Manali.
Himani's 4 days trip to ShimlaIt was nice trip to manali... Affordable and comfortable stay, and Cab provided by TT.

Manish's 6 days trip to ShimlaGuest Name- Manish Aggarwal Contact -9643835035 Hello Sir/Ma'am, I have converted my Himachal trip into Chandigarh Amritsar trip due to some uncertain excessive snowfalls in Shimla and Highway of Shimla Manali has also been blocked, But the night I stayed in Shimla were worst night ,even my whole day was terrible, firstly when I reached to Shimla via Toy train by bearing OWN expenses, I didn't found any cab there even if I informed earlier to cab provider, when I reached there my cab provider siad that his Cab stucked some where in snowfall but I would say it's his responsibility to aarange cab as he know every thing in advance ,so after 2 hours we arranged UNION CABS for which they charged RS 700 from me and thanks to cab provider he adjust the same amount , in between that , I called hotels Nature ville and they said that they will transfer us in some other hotel due to cab didn't reach their hotels, and they provide us low category hotel and food was also average. next morning we again called cab provider but driver make so much excuses and he didn't reach at hotel on time even if we were ready at 9.30 a.m but when he come he made excuses but spoke harsh language., So I called my tour facilitator EKTA VERMA ,and she helped me to get new cab and change my tour itinerary, than we went Chandigarh in some other cab ,driver of which was really good and cooperative. Amritsar hotel PURI PALACE were also good and food were also awesome , but his toiletary were not working properly even if we have 2 rooms Than we went to Chandigarh hotel DIAMOND INN which experience were really bad, they Neither provide complimentary water bottle nor any sweet dish in dinner but only provide RS. 10 icecream cup , over all this hotel experience isnot good, location is very poor, one common gyser for 2 rooms, 2 room gyser not working properly. Tour facilitator were very helpful, cab driver awesome I thought that this trip can be done with In 30k bucks ,rest is good Second cab driver behavior is good, Amritsar hotel food is good
Sangeetha's 5 days trip to ShimlaAn amazing trip. Thanks to all those who made this happen. Especially the travel agent who helped in getting all my concerns rectified as soon as its raised .
Isvariyaa's 5 days trip to ShimlaThough the Manali stay was really awesome, shimla hotel was not up to the expectation. But the food was good in both the hotels. All the other travel arrangements were neatly done. Especially the travel agent Gaurav, made all our requests fulfilled and was always available through call/ message which made our trip easier. The driver Rahul was a good one who helped us a lot , knows the place very well and drove very well on the slippery roads :)
Prashant's 8 days trip to ShimlaHotel could have been much better. The one we booked ourselves at Manali was at same cost and was way more good than what we got in Shimla through TT. Cab and Driver was exceptionally good.
Neha's 3 days trip to ShimlaAmazing trip with Travel Triangle & Tanish Tours & Travels! The tour was well organized and planned. The assigned agents from Tanish Tours, Ms Mahima Chandel & Mr Bunty Thakur was extremely supportive and helpful throughout the trip. I would like to thank both for their assistance. The issue we faced was only with the cab driver, he was not responsive, cooperative and was very arrogant but later we did adjust with him. Also, the washroom facilities were really bad in the hotel allotted to us in Shimla. Rest everything was perfectly fine with the hotels in both Shimla & Manali, the food and the services. They also arranged a surprising candlelight dinner during our stay at Manali. Unfortunately, we missed Solang due to heavy snowfall. But overall, I am happy with my trip. It was one of the most beautiful and memorable experiences of my life. Looking forward to visiting again. :) :)
