Sunil's 7 days trip to Florence

Had a great trip to Rome, Florence, Venice and Paris. Uday and Prasanth from Travel Triangle supported us well with flight, rail tickets and hotel accommodation. They also suggested to book Skip the line tickets for major attractions and it saved a lot of time. They were also available 24/7 during the trip on phone for any queries or support. Thank you Uday and Prasanth!

Armaankohli's 6 days trip to Florence

Firstly thanks to Mr PRASHANT and SHUBHAM from hubholiday . It was our honeymoon Trip ,and we had an unforgettable trip to Italy. Everything was taken care of by Shubham And Prashant from HubHoliday. Shubham was extremely helpful and managed the entire bookings/Itinerary pretty well. Hotel Property Were really Great and at good Location . It was an unforgettable memory of my life . We have booked the jet airways flights , but before our travel jet airways flights cancelled , Mr Prashant called the airlines and booked ethihad flights with no extra charge . A special note to Hub Holiday team - Prashant and Shubham who were 24*7 available on phone and never left a stone unturned to address my query or provide guidance as and when I required. Shubham worked really hard on understanding our requirements and went through several iterations to give us the best possible plan. Truly speaking, we couldn't have created one like this ourselves. We were booked at centrally located 3/4 star hotels and had all the transfers included. We wanted to keep our schedule relatively relaxed, so were given bookings on cruises, day passes which included free public transportation & entry to some of the spots, hop on-hop off city tours which gave us a lot of flexibility and still let us see the best that the city had to offer. We we're quite confused in the beginning as to how the itinerary will be and what are the best places to visit in Europe .Shubham has guided us to go to italy as italy was within our budget . Audi cars were provided for pick up and drops!!A big Thanks to Shubham , Prashant and your team for providing the excellent arrangement and support throughout the trip.I would love to have another trip with HubHoliday in future.

Sahil's 5 days trip to Florence

The itinerary was very well planned to cover and give a very good experience of entire Italy. The tours offered were also great. Hotels were nice and located near to train stations. The cab drivers were also good as they reached to pick up well before the time. In all the travel agent provided a good package with continuous timely assistance also whenever required. Looking forward to book further holidays through them also. Well Done.

Kadambri's 6 days trip to Florence

The overall experience was really good.we had a great time in all the three cities.Things moved as per our planned iternary.However would like to share few experiences so as your team can keep this in mind for any other travelers.first experienxe-the driver who came to pick us up looked little irritated as he had to wait for quite sometime.Though our flight arrived on time but I guess he came there an hour before and thus had to wait long but with no fault of ours. Second I-I believe planning a visit to Venice itself makes Gondola ride inevitable.It is a kind of experience which every traveler looks forward to.I would suggest to keep it a private tour instead of a shared tour so that the experience goes at par with expectations.I would suggest to prediscuss this with each traveler and then take it forward accordingly and customize if need be.Rest all was really good,the services and responses from the agent were very prompt and supportive .Thanks for making it so beautiful..Will definitely like to take your services in future as well Visit to Vatican city, florence -tower of pisa and so many others

Gaurav's 7 days trip to Florence

Thank you @ Mr Rajat from hubholiday. Our trip to Italy was planned very nicely and with comfort as well. Hotels he selected were near to each and every station. Itenary was planned in a manner where we had time to rest at night but covered all iconic spots of the city. Mr Rajat was very helpful in timely informing about the corona issue, which was very important for me and my family to know about this outbreak of news. I would recommend from my personnel experience Mr Rajat from HubHoliday to plan tour and holidays.

I had a wonderful experience with travel triangle. Simran from Knowravel Holidays was of utmost help. She helped in curating the best itinerary for us. She was also looking for the best prices of the flight so we got a good deal in booking international flights. The hotels were also good. The tours organised were good and comfortable. The pickup cabs were of good quality. Overall an overwhelming experience for us. I would highly recommend booking a trip with this agency. Thanks Simran!! :)
