Trip to ItalyListing the cons here first. On one of the days we were to reach the hotel at 8am after an early morning flight. When we reached, we were told that we had to wait till 2pm since the check in time is from 2pm and they wouldn't be able to provide us a room till that time. So we had to roam nearby for 6 hours just to pass the time. In one of the sightseeing trips (to Cinque Terre, which comprises of 5 islands) we were given the tickets of the tour for the same. But when we started the tour we came to know that our ticket was only for the round trip bus tickets. From the drop point we had to take take trains/boats on our own to explore all the islands. Overall, we travelled to 5 cities in the entire trip and the experience was good as planned, except a couple of the hotels booked were not upto the mark, and the rooms were very small, almost the size of the bed with no space to open our luggage. Except for these, every other thing was planned nicely and we had a great time during our trip!
Trip to EuropeReally appreciate the management and service of the agents to make our trip to Italy truly memorable. I customized whole tour according to my choices of hotels, activities etc. I got complete co operation from Nisar with good suggestions at good price. It was the best quotation I had received from all the agencies. I would definitely prefer memorable trips for my next trips.
Trip to EuropeMy trip was for Italy and it was great. Everything was taken care of by Agent assigned and was very well planned. I faced no issue what so over over 6 days of my travel.
Trip to EuropeI took help of Vacactions Madcap for planning my trip to Italy and France with my wife. Amazing planning done by Saurabh and his team. Timing of flights, selection of hotels and their location and other guided tour was excellent.I wish the bond with Vacations Madcap continues for our future trips. I would strongly recommend Vacations Madcap for Europe trip.
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. Also Mr Sagar Sharma took care of arranging all the packages suitable to our need. A 5 star on the services provided by travel agent Florence and Venice are unforgettable. Specially the 30 min gondola ride and water taxi provided
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.
Trip to EuropeMemorable Holidays left no stone unturned to make our holiday memorable for life. From the right advice while drafting the itinerary to last minute bookings since our visas were delayed, the support was very good. Krishna recommended the right tours and the hotels selected had excellent location. Had a lot of fun. Italy was wonderful and we felt that it deserves a vacation on its own with a minimum of 3 days in Rome and a visit to the Amalfi Coast
