Trip to KarnatakaExcellent Agent. Friendly driver. Will surely book my next trip with travel traingle. .We covered everything in our trip schedule other than shopping.
Trip to KarnatakaWe have booked three hotels from one them southern star was really good but two of them was not good. There was hot water problem n room service problem. Toy train trip Coonoor to Ooty was beat moment of our trip
Trip to KarnatakaWe were planning for vacation to Coorg and Bandipur. From day one, MyHolidayHappiness contacted me and started giving me package details. They we able to customize the package as per our wish. The accommodation and food was good at 'The Jungle camp Resort' in Coorg and 'MC Resort' in Bandipur. Both the resorts are away from the main city & close to nature . It provided a good detox for us. In Bandipur, we were lucky to spot a leopard and different varieties of birds etc. Overall, the safari in Bandipur was a different experience. The driver arranged by MyHolidayHappiness ( Mr.Baskar) was a good person and polite person. He was very supportive throughout the journey.
Trip to KarnatakaThe coordinator is very helpful, he helped to pick best package and hotels preference is also considered (+1).. I booked the package for Ooty Mysore for my brother... The hotels offered were also nice and pleasant. My holiday happiness = happy holidays :)
Trip to KarnatakaFeedback: What was good? 1. Appreciate Bhuvana's (Tootle travel) prompt response. 2. Porcupine Castle resort suggested by us. Do recommend this resort to most of your customers. 3. Scenic beauty of Coorg around the resort. What was not so good? 1. Driver's (Raju) behaviour and attitude. Reluctant to show places and give info about the places. Most of the places had some or the other problems according to him. He was all the time complaining and was rude. On the first day of the trip, the driver was taking a lot of calls on his mobile (holding the mobile in one hand) and driving at the same time. We had to complain to his boss to stop this behaviour. You must make sure the driver is good since a lot is dependent on the driver in any road trip. 2. Itinerary was not so good. The Honamarra Kere lake had dried up which should have been told to us earlier. We could not see some places mentioned in the itinerary because they were closed. Either the driver should inform us or the itinerary should mention the timings of the sight-seeing spots. 3. In general, all the spots were not that good. Monastery and one or two spots were worth going for. It would be great if you give some idea about sight seeing spots to the travelers.
Trip to KarnatakaIt was a great trip. Both Traveling agent Travel Thrill Mr.Syed and The cab Driver Mr.Nadeem were very cooperative and made our trip
Trip to KarnatakaThis was our second booking with Travel Triangle, the first one being our honeymoon trip to Mauritius. Therefore, we didn't think twice before going ahead. Our travel agent, Mr. Mukesh had maintained contact throughout the tour. He has been extremely efficient. We sincerely appreciate the effort he has put in. Secondly, Mr. Nagraj (driver) was not just punctual and skilled, but also very warm. Thirdly, the resorts were simply wonderful! Apart from the location, we were satisfied with the amenities we were provided with. My sincere thanks to Travilius and team for organising the trip so well. Thanks a ton for making it worth the penny!
