Kasturi's 5 days trip to MacauThank you so much Travel Triangle for putting together such a wonderful trip. The vehicle and meals were all good. The best part of the trip was the tour guides they were too good. They kept our schedule exactly how we asked. Very well organized. Many more trips to go
Gauri's 8 days trip to MacauThank you so much for the arrangements made by travel triangle. We had an amazing trip. Everything went according to the itinerary. We did not have to face any difficulty and very much satisfied with the services provided by travel triangle. There was a difficulty before departure, the ferry bookings were made incorrectly by our spoc. This is very sad to write but, he did not correct it nor he had a courtesy to call the us and ask whether it is rectified or not. And most importantly, i would like to thank Bijay Kushwaha for the quick support by him. I had contacted him at 11PM regarding the ferry tickets issue. And the very next day he corrected my ferry tickets and sent me the updated tickets. And even he told that we can contact him anytime if any issue is there throughout my journey. This is the support customers need, when making the bookings from travel agency. We had even contacted customer care and whats app group regarding the same issue. But we were told that they can fix this in official hours. When we did not know whether our issue will get resolved or not, as we were supposed to fly within 10-11 hours. We really appreciate Bijay for helping us.

Lokesh's 8 days trip to MacauOverall experience is not great. Even though we have started discussing about my trave needs 5 months before my travel dates, we ended-up in travelagenet dropping key locations from my iteranary. Travelagent drama started after full-payment of travel amount. Getting refund was nightmare .. (took more than 4 weeks) that to for the trips which they were not able to book (refer details below). When we requsted for Non-Veg dinner booking.. they endedup booking dinner with Beef and Pork .

Rajdeep's 7 days trip to MacauIt was a good experience, Overall the trip went well, There were a couple of minor hiccups which were dealt professionally by Mr.Chanpreet from Holidays2Cherish. We are very happy with the services. Surely we have a lot of memories to cherish. Only thing which could have been better was the Hong Kong city tour, it would have been better if there was any option of full day city tour covering some more tourist attractions. It was a good trip overall. The guides were good and helpful. Macau tower Skywalk experience was the best(this was not included in the package), closely followed by Disneyland.
