    • Trip to Nepal

      This was the first experience in booking a trip from TravelTriangle and the first time in putting the trust into someone else in booking the holiday details - and I am happy to share that this will not be the last time. Thanks to Traveltriangle (Ashish) for guiding in making the payments and bringing Snowyoda to the mix. Sumit from Snowyoda was very responsive and accomodating which is the main reason for choosing Snowyoda. My family and myself enjoyed the trip thoroughly and will have good memories. Specific thanks to the driver Sumit (yes, another one!) who was very accommodating and always had a smile on his face. The choice of hotels was great and specific highlights were the mountain flight and the food in Rainforest Hotel in Chitwan - I have not eaten better and nicer cooked Indian food in India... the hotel in Pokhara was good and beautiful, the Apsara hotel was ideally located. I was persistent that we would require a SUV for the trip due to the roads, but Sumit told me that it would be better with a sedan and I stand corrected, the sedan was a better choice than a Scorpio. Sumit will be choice for the next trip to Nepal for myself and also referred to my family for their trips as they are already going ga-ga over the pics!

    • Trip to Kerala

      Every thing was supercool just the boathouse was full of insects as the sun set. Kerala is the place I never wanted to leave and it’s the place I’d like to visit again with Travel Traingle. Mr. Vijit from Travel Unbounded has also been helpful throughout the trip asking for any problems and whereabouts. I would love to plan my next holidays with them. Driver Firos was helpful in every manner. He knew where he was taking us what roads he should pick to deliver us the sightseeing we wanted, he even acted as a local scout for us as we are from North India. He is such a good person that I will try to be in touch with him even after this trip. Munnar was the first destination for us at Kerala. This place has never ending beauty as such that My words aren’t enough to explain. Road side houses are very beautiful. Roads are very nice and smooth. Kathakali dance, wow I would never forget those expressions from the dancers and Kalari too. Backwaters Allepuzha nice to feel the house floating on water. Beaches on Kovallam and the sunset. It’s a must do tour. Planing to visit here in last weeks of June to first of July did the trick for me I guess as this place is known for its greenery and the best time to see greenery is after the first Monsoon shower right. Clouds covering mountains is also a sight to see. At the end of the tour I was really feeling down as I had to head back and I was just into the place. I can feel I am taking Kerala in my good memories. People say food here is bad and cooked in coconut oil. It’s not true to the core but yeah Punjabi food is a bit different from north but it’s good in taste. I would rate the taste to 3 out of 5. Place is safe for couple and people are cooperating. Kerala God’s Own Country

    • Trip to North East

      I login to travel triangle for trip to northeast and from there fukran (reify travels) and many others from different travel agents contact me and start sharing the iteneary to northeast india trip. And atlast i finalize with fukran because he was so calm and fulfilled all the requirements and very much into that trip like he is planing his own best trip. The best part is that he didn't use any "similar" type of word in anything like in hotels and vehicles. He gave the exact hotel name and vehicle name what he is going to give and atlast stick with the plan. Very very nice experience. Thanks alot fukran and reify for making our trip so happening and successful. And atlast i would definitely thanks saiful Islam our trip driver for his calmness and punctuality.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      This review/testimonial is coming a lot late in the day. Nevertheless the entire experience of my travel/ trip to Bhutan compelled me to write it down. Before I start I must give a disclaimer that the words written here will never be able to put down the real experience that was originally felt or seen. My trip was from June 6-11(6 days) in which I covered Phuentsholing- Thimpu- Paro and back to Phuentsholing. I wanted to surprise my parents by taking them with me to some place nice to beat the heat of summer. I being a practising Lawyer I had the month of June available to put the plan in action. However due to work pressure I couldn't plan anything. I couldn't even choose a place to visit. Naturally I planned my trip at the eleventh hour in last week of May. I was web searching various holiday destination in and around India. And Bhutan caught my eye. Then while searching for various travel review and also searching for a travel agent ( cause as I said I had no time to do self booking) I stumbled upon this website Travel Triangle (TT). I looked up on its website, read various testimonials such as this. Ms. Sushmita From TT helped out a lot provided me with various trips from many travel agent and after a little bit of research I zeroed on the trip provided by Himavat Destination. I called up the number given in web. Ms Ranjita Thapa was my point of contact in Himavat Destination. My entire was practically tailor made as per my specifications given by me as I wanted to have maximum comfort for my parents. I choose from the best hotels as per my need to the car for pick up and drop right from New Jalpaiguri Station (NJP) to Phuentsholing then from rest of the trip and back to Bagdogra Airport. And Sushmita and Ranjita made it possible for me. I must compliment these two persons as I disturbed them a lot and they basically stayed connected with me the entire trip. Both of them were very courteous and we're extremely helpful. Not only that once the trip started on 6th they made a WhatsApp group with many other people who were my point of help in Bhutan. That really helped. So now the details of my trip: We reached NJP on 6th at about 11am. On 5th itself I was given the details of driver who was waiting for us before our arrival. Car was WagonR. After a quick lunch at Teesta Barrage we started our journey towards Phuentsholing. The road goes through Hasimara- Alipurduar- Jaigaon. Road was comparatively good. The entire journey took is about 4-5 hrs. Road goes through Lush green forest in Hasimara. Huge Tea Estates in Jaigaon Alipurduar. Scene was worth capaturing. You can see groups of women plucking tea leaves. When you reach Jaigaon you can see the Mountains on distant horizons which indicates that you are nearing Bhutan border. The entire trip was very comfortable. Just as you enter Bhutan there are few things which is bound to falls in your notice. One the population-crowd ( Entire population of Bhutan is approximately 7.5 lacs only) and temperature suddenly and significantly goes down. Buildings have distinct architecture. Very little cars on road therefore zero pollution, air quality improves. Lots of trees which are not deforested for urbanisation or otherwise. Roads are butter smooth and well maintained and finally but not lastly no garbage on streets. Bhutanese people in their native clothes Gho (clothes worn by the men) and Kira(worn by Women). Bhutanese people are highly sensitive about cleanliness of not only their own homes but also their country which in my opinion is commendable. So we finally reached Phuentsholing checked in Hotel Alem. It's perched on a hilltop. The hotel was very good. Rooms were spacious, with all amenities Hotel staffs were very courteous and friendly. We reached there by 4-5 pm. As we were little exhausted we had our dinner in Hotel only and spent the night in the hotel only. Please note the driver who brought us to the hotel was given only till this point. Next day onward we got a local driver named Ugyen Rinzin who stayed with us for the entire trip within Bhutan. So next day (7th June) early morning me and my father went for a little Morning walk around the town. We did a heavy breakfast (which was included in the package itself) then Ugyen (driver) and Ms. Karma (our guide) was waiting with his Hyundai Tucson in which we first went to the immigration office for getting permits. It took us good 3 hrs over there as it was a little crowded. We bought a local sim for mobile as Indian numbers don't work over there. Also got currency exchanged as we were told that 2000 RS and 500 RS notes in Indian currency was not accepted in Bhutan which later I found to be not true. Yes, Indian currency is easily accepted all over Bhutan. After completing the immigration permits we started for Thimpu. Road to Thimpu from Phuentsholing goes through mountain pass at high altitude. As we climbed up the altitude the Greenery increased many folds and temperature droped further. we were going through heavy clouds and rain with almost zero visibility which made the journey mountain pass quite dangerous yet full of adventure and excitement. Scenic beauty was beyond words even the photos captured by my camera has watered down it's beauty, rustic smell of ground after first flush of rain and it's overall serenity. I was reminded of the lines from the poem written by John Keats - "A thing of beauty is joy forever." We stopped for lunch on the way and reached Thimpu after 5 hrs of drive at around 4 pm. We checked into our Hotel Oro Villa which is on the periphery of city perched on an elevated Hillside overlooking the city itself. View of the city from our hotel room was breath taking. One can spend hours overlooking the the imperial capital locked in the valley of mountains on its all sides. Thimpu is the only place which you can term as a city. It being the capital of Country has all amenities like big Hospitals, Markets, etc. Plus the major portion of population of the country resides here. That evening we took a stroll and explored the surrounding areas of the city. There are many shops of curios, local clothes and handcrafts which one should explore. People throughout Bhutan are very honest, friendly, approachable and are extremely helpful. One thing is visible everywhere is that people of Bhutan loves and respects their King And Queen like their own parents. Present King is also called People's King. Indian food is easily available in the hotels so we had dinner and spent the rest of evening overlooking the city from our room balcony and chit chatting with each other. Next day (8th June) we went for local sightseeing which includes Tashicho Dzong, Memorial Chorten, Buddha Dordenma which is a huge statute of Buddha over a hill top overlooking the City., a place called Simply Bhutan which I will recommend for every tourist to visit as it gives you insight of Bhutanese Culture, traditions, taste of local Cuisine, etc. We got a guide named Ms Pema who showed us around. We had the lunch there and also met a famous national paraplegic sculptor Mr. Pema Tshering. We also visited local Textile Museum and local Handicraft Market. Bhutan is famous for Sterling jewellery, Gem stones, Tankhas, and crockery. After a day well spent we returned to our hotel took a little rest and again visited local town on foot in the evening. Weather in Thimpu is very pleasant. Hotels don't have Fans, air-conditioning systems. Next day (9th June) after Breakfast we went to Paro. The trip took us 2-3 hrs as the roads were extremely good and well maintained. We reached Paro by 11 am and went straight to Taktsang Lakkhang (Tiger's Nest) monastery. I did the trekking with my father. Now one thing to be kept in mind trek of Taktsang is Moderately tough. It takes 3 hrs to go up and equal time to come down. But the view and the experience was simply mesmerizing. I being trek lover person would recommend it for every one who are physically fit person to undertake this trek. So we completed our trek and got down by 6 pm. We were completely exhausted so took rest for the rest the day in our hotel Yanki Resort. Next morning (10th June) we did local sightseeing visited Airport View point overlooking Paro International airport. From this point the entire airport looks like Hotwheels Play set, then we visited Paro Museum, Paro Dzong and then we started our return journey to Phuentsholing. After completing the sightseeing it took us another 4-5 hrs. That evening we went out again to explore Phuentsholing. Here we bid adieu to Uygen as there was other driver given for our journey back. Next day (11th June) after heavy Breakfast we bid adieu to Bhutan and Returned to Bagdogra Airport for our returning flight. So this was my testimonial for my trip to Bhutan. now during this entire trip Ms Ranjita Thapa from Himavat along with other people stayed in contact with me looking after our comfort which I truly believe made the entire trip wonderful and joyable. I thank Travel Triangle ( specially Sushmita) and Himavat Destination ( specially Ranjita) for their support.

    • Trip to Italy

      Holiday aces organized my tour perfectly. I have traveled with so many other travel agencies in the past and this time I choose holiday aces along with Travel Triangle. Both the teams work very efficiently. Aaryan from Holiday aces is a super guy his domain knowledge is second to none. I would like to highlight once we were stuck with some issue in the middle of the night and we called Aaryan he along with his team came to the rescue when they helped us at 2 AM India time which you don't expect however they delivered. Lastly, I would highly recommend Travel Triangle and HoliDay Aces to my friends and family as it is not the price you should have in mind while traveling it is when someone is looking after you and your travel like a FAMILY MEMBER. Please give some chocolates from my end to Aaryan.

    • Trip to Thailand

      First and foremost i should appreciate Riya for the timely planning and updates from the start even before booking and till our trip got over. It was difficult for me in a way to book and coordinate since i was away from India but she made is really easy for me. My experience in Thailand was great too but i would only have a problem in miscommunication where the agent told me that visa on arrival was only necessary when i reach Phuket Via Bangkok but things were different when i landed where i had to be on a long enough queue and apply for visa with very minimum English speaking people in that airport. Finally i was able to fly before my connection flight departed since asking some English speaking people and advise me about fast track counter for visa which was a big stressful for me. But otherwise my trip had been great. Thanks a lot to Riya and the Team !! I will definately plan my future trips with you guys with no hesitation. Cheers :)

    • Trip to Char Dham

      Changes in the hotel which were confirmed - The hotel agreed on the voucher for haridwar for 2 nights were different from the one provided. The hotel for Kedarnath was cancelled and no other arrangements were made. All these things were informed after I reached haridwar. I was told to look for my own hotel in Kedarnath. Bad conditions of hotels- The hotel of haridwar was very poor in service and cleanliness. The bathrooms were not cleaned and cupboards were dirty. The hotel in Badrinath had it's Breakfast and Dinner in another building on the 2nd floor with no lift. False booking confirmation- Hotel in Mathura was not booked. Had to wait for 1 hour with family in 40°c before getting the confirmation that too after checking for availability in another hotel near by. Travel agent feedback- Travel agency was unapologetic about changes in hotels. They were very casual about it. I had agreed to pay the remaining balance using card but was asked to pay in cash. The travel agency owner and their employees had a complete miscommunication. I had to struggle to get cash from ATMs on the way to kedarnath. Had to take it from the driver at the end. Travel agent did mistake in booking helicopters. He managed to book it for only 4 instead of 5. It was not the issue of availability of tickets but he booked the 5th ticket with a duplicate name. I had to argue to get back 100% of my helicopter ticket price. I was assured to get my breakfast and dinner expense at mathura reimbursed. The amount was 1600 and they reimbursed only ₹1500. It is not about the ₹100 which is left but about their professionalism. My only motive to have everything booked through an agency was to have a stress free trip. I guess I would have had less stress if I had booked everything on my own. Would not recommend explore India destinations to anyone for sure. Haridwar hotel on voucher - Urmi actual - Park grace Kedarnath hotel on voucher- GMVN actual - cancelled with no replacement. Rudraprayag hotel on voucher - Sun international actual - Suri Driver was friendly and vehicle condition was good.

    • Trip to Turkey

      Turkiye Cumhuriyeti! (i.e. Turkey!) It was an amazing experience. Thnz to Mr Sunil Sahu. The trip was properly planned out: flights, transfers, hotels and tours - all was well sorted and Sunil had advised and helped us right from getting the visa done. All the stays were fantastic, the airport transfers were royal and tours were enjoyable. Apart from one or two hiccups, our honeymoon was memorable! Once again, thnz to Mr Sahu, Aionz Sojourn, for his professional management. Antalya is a beautiful town! Hot air balloon was an amazing experience. Do book atleast a month in advance as prices will shoot up very high later. Istanbul too is a very clean city. You get to experience Europe at half the price and half the distance from India!
