    • Trip to Mysore

      There are two things very important which is making any trips grateful the one is hotels & location and second one is cabs & drivers. In our case we got very nice cab and driver Mr. Naveen moorti and he served very good services to us and we satisfied with him during our trip also we are thankful to MS Bhargavi from VFM holidays she provided flexibility to us for shuffling our trip dates to one day and she was very polite and manageable. The only thing which we have disappointed the first one thing of hotel and location choosing skill we are not satisfied with hotels at all the places (Ooty,Mysore,Bangalore) except coorg. The banglore hotel was really worst in above all. so they should improve this thing rest of the thing are very good we really enjoyed during our vacation. Thanks VFM.

    • Trip to Mysore

      It was a well arranged trip from Bangalore to Mysore (2days and 1night) by Madurai Eco Tourism. Cab: Very neat and comfortable. Driver: Velu's driving was good. But I think he should be familiar with the routes a bit more. We couldn't visit Brindavan gardens due to raining. Instead Driver suggested Srirangapatanam. We reached there by around 3:30pm. But temple opening time was 4pm. Before entering in to the temple he told we have to leave soon as he need to go another trip at Bangalore by 7:30. Since we don't want miss visiting the temple, i told him to wait for sometime. After temple opens we suddenly finished our visit asap and get back to the cab. Before reaching our home (around 11km back) driver dropped us near a metro station, and requested us to take uber or ola from there. It was very difficult for us to manage packing our luggage suddenly to shift the cab as I was travelling with my 3year old son. But since he requested we had to agree. But he is a good driver still I recommend for such trips. Hotel: (casa meridian mysore) It is a 3star oyo hotel at Mysore arranged for night stay. But their service was very disappointed. Hotel room was ok and neat enough. But restaurant food on the 5th floor was very bad. We were offered free breakfast. It was very bad quality. They were serving same curry for all dishes. Thanks. We visited First day: St.Philomina Church, Mysore silk saree shop, Mysore palace. 2and day: Chamundi hills, Srirangapatanam Thanks

      Thanks Lee Vacations for arranging a back-up trip to Hampi. I planned Coorg-Mysore trip but coorg was totally flooded and Lee Vacations arranged a back-up trip to Hampi. It was totally enjoyable and looking forward to our next trip with them. The driver and the cab were very good. The only bad experience in this trip was the hotel. The hotel was not up to the mark. They didn't take card payment or online payment. And the receptionist was rude and not helpful. The AC and TV was not working. Except the hotel, the total experience was very good.

      A very well organised trip overall by VFM Holidays. Ooty was amazing, Mysore and Coorg were good as well. Only advice is plan either Ooty or Coorg at one time as weather/landscape almost same. I would prefer Ooty over Coorg. Also, dont plan Coorg in Monsoon, e.g July. It rains 24*7. Cheersssss!
