Trip to EuropeHello Team Memorable, I visited to Europe trip organised by Memorable trip majorly Krishna, It was fully customized. trip was of 11 days in which I covered Italy (Rome, Florence, Venice), Swiss (Zurich, Interlaken, Geneva, Lucerne) & France (Paris).

I really like the availability for the staff to clarify me the things whenever needed. Only thing which I did not liked was of Paris hotel. Location was good but somehow room quality was not satisfactory. In future, I will surely go with Memorable, I also recommend same to try this once. Big Kudos to team Memorable.!!

Trip to EuropeWe loved our time in Italy, very well organized by Duniya Safari. The good - great booking for day trips and guided tours, Special mention to Ishita as she was always on her toes to help us in all our queries,.during the stay the hotel in Paris was very small, room size was like just the size of the bed but one thing best about the hotel was its location as it was walkable from the centre of Paris.Thanks to the team assisting us at Duniya Safariand Travel Triangle.
Trip to EuropeIt was a honeymoon travel, and we had an unforgettable trip to Italy. Everything was taken care of by holidayhub and travel triangle. Specially the pre trip preps and on the trip Mr Prashant and Yeeshu were of great help and made all the changes required even if it was last time changes and designed the package absolutely as per our demands.

Trip to EuropeWe had booked my honeymoon trip to France and Italy through Hub Holidays. Despite being a package tour, we had the complete independence to chose my itinerary. The hotels provided were just awesome, especially the ones is Venice and Rome. Our hotel location in Nice and Paris was also awesome. The hotel staff in Rome was so courteous that they upgraded us for a complete apartment with full amenities. To my amazement, it also had a terrace with it. Speaking about Hub Holidays, I have never had a better travel agency doing job for me. They were quick and generous while responding to any queries or problems. Keep up the good work guys. Also, I dropped my passport in Disneyland Paris and Hub Holidays helped me in getting it back and made me feel relaxed even though I thought I have lost it. Yeeshu and Prashant were too good.
Trip to EuropeWe booked our Italy Tour with Hub Holidays. Rohit was extremely helpful and managed the entire bookings/Itinerary pretty well. He was very supportive in managing any changes we suggested. The hotels booked were also decent with great location. Overall we had a great time in Italy. Looking forward to many more such outings. Cheers!!

Trip to EuropeI went to France, Switzerland and Italy. I got a very competitive pricing from Hubholiday. They provided very nice pre, post and on trip support. Thanks Yeeshu and Prashant for your efforts to make my trip memorable. They even provided support for information not part of package such as best option to buy sim. I really liked hop in hop off bus in France and Italy, it was a great way to visit major tourist places in less time in a cost effective manner. Swiss pass in Switzerland was also great I could travel anywhere in Switzerland via it. Tip for first time travelers - make sure you know all information in detail, less vegetarian options are there specially in Switzerland so you can buy fruits, chips, etc from there or bring from India, be well before time on famous monuments, make sure to take care of your stuff to avoid any issues on the trip.
