Lark's 4 days trip to GulmargOur trip planner is awesome, he prepared everything for us and we really enjoyed our valuable time. It's worth to mention cab driver is really cool and honest guy. Thanks. Gulmarg (Gondola) Houseboat Shikhara
Praveen's 4 days trip to GulmargHi, The Following points I observed during the travel. 1. In my tour plan the car was etioss but I received swift dezire. First they give us Tavera then I raised the issue, after that they provide me Swift dezire. 2. When we arrived in srinagar, hotel The Victory, the room was not ready, Room service also not good, everytime we called for soap/ hot water/ bucket & other items. 3. The hotel apple tree food was not Good, Room service also not Good. Electricity service very poor, Pls do not recommend this hotel to customers. In two day entire night no electricity & no proper power back up. 4. I already shared my AIR Tickets for pre arrangement but I have seen there are some delays. 5. Sikara ride is to short, When I say why u r not doing complete round of sikara, then he replied we can provide only this ride, thenafter I will give him some amount for sikara ride. 6. Our Driver Mr. Nazir is Very Good, He help us every time. This is my worst experience with travel triangl, last time kerla trip was very good and I expect this trip give me wonderful memory, but I take bad experience with classic holiday. Only because of our driver, we take some good memory also.
Mamatharaghuraj's 6 days trip to GulmargOur trip to kashmir was well organized and executed by shoib and Our driver Imran was very polite,professional and helpful.
Devansh's 6 days trip to GulmargSo this trip was well planned and well-executed, it's just don't fall into the trap of special arrangements from the agency as they will raise your expectations and end up screwing your special days or your surprises for your honeymoon or anniversary. I recommend you not to get any arrangements in the houseboat as you will be stuck in the middle of DAL Lake and you cannot do the last-minute arrangement either on your own. I had a special request of room decoration + candlelight dinner in a room + anniversary cake. I ended up getting a cake and a candlelight dinner in the common area and which is kinda uncomfortable, at the same time room decoration was not at all done and the excuse was that sorry sir we informed the hotel but they missed out and the hotel guys said that we were not informed about the same. Rest the trip was good but they screwed my special moments and arrangements
Pradeep's 4 days trip to GulmargOver all good experience in terms of the trip. Driver was helpful for bargaining at times
Mayur's 6 days trip to GulmargWe really enjoyed our first trip to Srinagar. We are looking forward to visit again in summer as we are alredy missing being there. We got to see and learn about Srinagar because of our driver who made out trip more enjoyable. Also the agent was always available during the trip to hear our concerns. We also got 1 hour complementary Shikara ride in Dal lake as part of our tour.
Gourav's 4 days trip to GulmargI booked a trip to Srinagar.The hotels were good. Hotel manager and the cab driver were so friendly and helpful. Our agent also helped to solve all our small problems.
