Will definitely refer it to my friends & family. Only bad thing is Archit from TravelThrills. I contacted him so many times on my date of return as i was facing some issues. He didnt pick up my call & not even has a courtesy to call me back.

      The hotel room in Coorg was not upto mark. The agent did not describe the room category before hand and we had to adjust to the room type given. In Mysore, also we had to pay extra to upgrade to the room category. It is also good to be transparent with the room types so that the guest can decide accordingly.
