      Too many mistakes. The procedure for raising invoice needs correction.Was made to turn to both agent n Travel Triangle: Travel Triangle rep including a lady higher up the chain promised to mail me the correct invoice. But am still waiting for the mail. The hotel selected was not a Star hotel that I had indicated. It is clear that the same was selected from the net which I could have done also. Trip was good n well executed but the planning process was poor. I however would compliment Mr Yadav of Shoppers Trip for he did help to the best of his abilities.

      My yrip for first two days in coorg was amazing, but ejen we reached ooty and saw the hotel it was one of the worst, what seen on photos and what it is actually it is completely different and when we tried contacting lee vacation, they told us they will see what they can do and after that they stopped recieving our phone calls as we have paid the complete amount just before we reached ooty, further we had to see other hotels on our own as well as bear the expense of it on our own

      Mysuru trip was great. But stay at Porcupine Castle resort was not great. Bad thing about resort is that they do not provide any facilities for driver to sleep in. This is required as resort is far away from population. Also, resort accessories, fittings and services were ordinary
