    • Trip to Maldives

      It was a nicely arranged trip from your side. I was happy with the arrangements made and the responses i was getting from your advisors particularly Himani who responded even on a day of holiday. Will definitely book next rip with you only. My next destinations are Bali,Sri Lanka, Andaman. About hotels : the friendliness shown by Hotel Fun Island resort for checking in is not there while checking out and the they are aloof from everything and adamant. I requested them to allow me to sit in the room after 12 checkout time for some time as it was very hot outside and my speedboat time was 2 :00 pm or to call speedboat by 12:30 and they expressed their inability for both. We had to sit in the open but covered lobby for two hours. They could have allowed it or in the other room where they welcome the guests.They did not helped for Wind surfing and canoeing though was mentioned in the itinerary as free and finally we did not do it.. But the rooms and the food both were very good. Even after reaching the airport for transfer to Hotel Coconut Tree they did not inform the Coconut Tree representative and we waited there for one hour for the cab on counter no. 27 as informed by you.. The system was the Fun Island people to inform the airport representative of Coconut Tree which was not followed. Finally I called the hotel from the Helpdesk at the airport and then cab was arranged . The Hotel Coconut tree seems to be a Transit Hotel as they do not have proper arrangements for food or breakfast. The breakfast is arranged at other hotel at the side and there was only bread and omelette for breakfast. Even for food I was not informed that the bill has to be below 12 USD per head and above it we have to pay which is ridiculous. Even arrangements were for one dinner and breakfast only and not for afternoon lunch which could have been avoided. But the approach and other things at the small hotel were excellent and two three times they mentioned about the inconvenience caused due to cab issue. On there own they asked us for sightseeing in Maldives and arranged at a discount to us. Also for this tour let the customers know that they can check in the luggage upto Maldives but the immigration things are to be done either at Cochi or Bangalore. For return trip the checkin is upto Cochi or Bangalore and one need to take luggage at these points including immigration for onward journey. Even though these issues were there I am happy with your arrangements. Regards, Gangawane

      Thank you for the prompt service, looking forward for future travel. We were happy to travel with Kushark Holidays Pvt Ltd for the first time, even though we are based out of Bangalore, we were not sure about travel accommodation for our maiden international tour to Singapore & Malaysia, Shalu and the team did a great job by taking care of our requirements as well as itinerary. We were contacted by Shalu in a timely manner to complete the procedure for the visa . Drivers and tour guide were well informed, the schedule was close to perfect for a vacation.

    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      I recently opted for the package offered by Foxpro Travels through Travel Triangle for a road trip to Mysore-Ooty-Coonoor from Bangalore. The entire experience has been an enriching one for me and my family. We were a group of 4 women and our driver ensured we were comfortable throughout the trip. The entire process, right from booking to paying off installments for the trip, was hassle free and effectively organized online. The agent assigned to the trip also ensured to stay in touch and follow up until all the formalities were finalized before the start of our journey. She also, at regular intervals, checked on if everything was going as planned. Overall, it was a memorable trip for us. Special thanks to Srishti from Foxpro Travels and our driver, Mr. Manjunath. We look forward to more happy trips such as this one through Travel Triangle! Thank you!!

    • Trip to Bangalore

      The entire trip was handled very well... the driver was very trained and a very honest guy We visited places in ooty, mysore and Bangalore in 5 days and the trip was a total success I was able to get everything costumized as per my wishes... and even after there was a fixed itenary.. when i made changes in the trip at those instances the driver did not create any fuss and was ready to take us to any place we wanted. I had to reach my office and also had to enjoy the trip... so this specially designed package helped me cover both. Very happy and definitely recommended!!!!

    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      I have given rating 9 instead of 10 because there is always a scope for improvement. My trip was from Bangalore - Ooty and Coonnor. First of all, I would like to call out few names here who where extremely helpful and very friendly through out the TRIP : 1. Karthik- I would say he was the show stopper for this trip because he was continuously in touch with me from the time I started to enquire about the trip till I came back from the trip just to check if everything was alright Kudos to him. 2. Roopa: She was the one who explained me clearly to choose the correct Travel agency by reading all the comments and ratings because I got cheapest travel agencies in terms of money but when I saw the ratings I thought I should go with TRAVEL TRIANGLE Kudos to her she deserves a pat on her back and definitely a Hike in the salary this goes to both Karthik and Roopa because they are the Asset to company they work for . 3, Mr. Imran - The Cab driver, I would feel bad if have to call him a cab driver because he was more like a family member to me through out the trip, my one year old son became closer to him within a span of a time because he was so friendly and polite and very good at driving. I will definitely choose Travel Triangle for all the future trips for sure. There were some flaws as well but that was not under any body's control so I would just leave that aside because I will cherish the Memory through out my life as this was our first trip with my son and he enjoyed the trip more than any body else, it was mainly planned for him so my trip was 100% successful. Thanks to Travel Triangle and all the people who where involved for planning a wonderful trip for my family. One friendly advice to who so ever reads this review please do not always think about Money because there are more important things to think about when you plan for a trip which is you safe Journey the place where you stay. First trip with my one year old son he enjoyed it a lot more of a family time that will be the best memory.

    • Trip to Bangalore

      Karnataka trip (Bangalore-Mysore-Ooty) had gives us lot of energy , peace of mind and refreshing our soul. Its very nice experience with this trip. Good Points 1. Cab driver was Cooperative and helpful person. 2. Cab driver suggest good spots in this journey. 3. Hotel Grand vanam was good. 4. Ooty and Mysore spots are good for tourist in June month. 5. overall experience was nice. Bad Points 1. Corporate host destination didn't share tour plan with cab driver. 2. Hotel The Baron in Ooty gives bad service. Temperature of Ooty was cold so we need hot water for bath, but hotel was unable to provide us hot water 24x7 . My hotel room was placed above kitchen cum dining hall so lot of noise (exhaust fan ) were came to room . Its irritating experience. 3. Trip was not completed as per plan . lot of changes we made while travelling. 4. All tourist spots were closed in Ooty in between 5.30pm to 6.30pm . Travel triangle should intimate this type of information with travelers.

    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      My trip was for mysore and ooty ( pickup and drop @ Bangalore ) not so great experience. Plus points:: > Good hotels and good budget. > Early morning pickup from airport as requested. > Cab Driver for mysore and mysore sightseeing. Minus points:: > We don't want to visit tea factory,rose garden but local agent was forcing me to visit these places, nothing was on plan for ooty trip, i want to visit avalanche lake in ooty but driver/agent was not ready to go ( though we get 1000 km per day , these people only go for city sightseeing ) > Local travel agent of corp-orates host destination was very bad, the day we left from Ooty to Bangalore airport , though we have reached before 9PM @ Airport, agent asking driver to collect extra 1500 Rs from us. > Ooty driver was asking for tolltaxes charges, parking charges,highway charges ( though it was included in my package ). > i also paid Bangalore airport parking charges . Overall poor experience , will think twice if i ever want to go with corporate host destination agents.
