Trip to MacauVenetian hotel in Macau was excellent. Breakfast difficult for vegetarians. Hotel in hongkong - Regal hongkong was good, but breakfast was worst for vegetarians. Driver (lady) in Macau was good. But drivers in Hongkong were not at all good. Marium was good, even Astha.
Trip to MacauThe trip was well organised...only thing was that after booking the quotation was changed...in macau ..the driver was a bit late to pick up us from the hotel..n before leaving no one could clearly say how to get into the ferry from the airport without luggage collection...anyway it was easy in the airport... It was a memorable trip...the best day was at disneyland...my kid had an amazing time....
Trip to Macauexcellent We went for a trip to Hong Kong / Macau through Sharing travels. It was very well planned and coordinated Trip. They connected us to their local partners which made travel very smooth. Akshay from the Sharing Travels team was very helpful and quick to respond, I am so thankful to him that he made us feel so comfortable all through our trip. Regards Gopikrishnan
Trip to MacauThe whole trip went off very smoothly. The Macau property was amazing. The Hong Kong property was just average the room was too small for 4 persons. The food options for Vegetarians was very limited that needs to be improved. You need at least three or four filling options apart from the regular bread and fruits. Macau stay was very very good.
Trip to MacauNot Communicated about exess of luggage in freey transportation,and we paid for it, and missed the water show in Venetian (Macau) this also not communicated
Trip to MacauFlight ..spice Jet is not good, Venetian stay is must in Macau, ,bshould be in basic package
Trip to MacauThe hotel in Macau was very wonderful and good, but free shuttle bus has dropped us another place near Westwood hotel which was very far from origin place. Hong Kong hotel Harbour plaza north point is good but rooms was very cozy not suitable for family. Plz don't give this type of room to family tourist. Overall it was good managed tour, tourist place, no issue. The pick up from hotel on 15.6.19 in the early morning was shared, why? Travel Triangle has make good tour, but the Hong Kong agency was less cooperative. Best memory in our trip is Disneyland, Macau hotel the parisian, hong Kong city etc
Trip to MacauThe trip itinerary was good but the trip pre-arrangements were not satisfactory and support was minimal. Initially my trip was to Hong Kong but due to my PAR rejection the support was not up to mark for the alternatives or options. The flights were booked by my side as suggested by TT representative and I suffered a loss of 24K for flight cancellation. Another loss of 16K I suffered for Hong Kong and Macau hotel bookings cancellation but I did not get any visibility for the cancellation charges as per contractual terms. The invoicing transparency to customers is making me doubt where my money is being put in and how much refund did I get. A total loss of 40K I have suffered for which I have not got any consolations and did not get recorded anywhere. The flight from Delhi left too late at 3am in the morning which wasted the half day trip as I reached Bali late night. I am not sure whether I can recommend Travel Triangle to my peer group for planning any holidays. Hoping management of TT pays some heed to my testimonial.
Trip to MacauNice arrangements, agents in Hongkong and Macau were nice. Macau Hotel was excellent. Hongkong Hotel was just OK. Time management was good.
Trip to MacauWe booked a package tour of hong kong and macau for 5 days with Travel triange/Timeless trips. We had booked our own flight and had let TT handle ground transportation and hotel booking. It was a smooth experience. The local agency handling transport is very efficient particularly in HK Mr Sunny is 9/10 on time and courteous. Couple of things for TT and Mr Sunny as feedback. Macau -> HK ferry, they charged baggage fees for checkedin luggage @25$/piece. This was not known earlier. For Mr Sunny - On the HK evening tour day, we had asked to be dropped at the ladies market but the driver dropped us at night market and said ladies market is a short walk from there whereas it is absolutely not the case. This was horrible. Rest was smooth. Sheraton at Macau was very good. We recommend it . HBPlaza 8 degrees is also good though space is small but thats true of all hotels in HK. The location has small shops so its convenient for buying stuff for kids etc. BTW we had taken 2 days for Disney and Ocean park tours. Both were good.
