Trip to KarnatakaOur trip was good. I will defiantly refer my friends about your service. We just straggled from the Bangalore railway station for pickup only. We reached Bangalore at Morning 6.45,But driver picked up us at 10.45 a.m. After that all is good. The travel triangle representative Shefali Maurya gave a good response and arranged for the cab. Then the cab driver Mr. Mahasboob is very kind. Nice guidance from him and helped us to plan the sightseeing very well. We felt the room was very nice and clean especially Suhashini palace in Mysore .And Santhi Castle International in Coorg also good but very for away from the city.

Trip to KarnatakaOverall trip was good. Hotels were comfortable. However driver was unable to speak hindi as well as English and cab was different from what was given in quote. After 2 days of trip driver got changed and the communication became better. Almost all the places are covered which were mentioned in the quote. Management of Lee Vacations was very good as they rearranged the trip in between due to cyclone FANI and still we were able to cover all places. Thumbs up for that.
