Trip to KashmirThe cab did not take to gulmarg instead we had to book another cab paying extra money. Also flexibility was requested at the very start but still the agent denied covering 2 areas in same day even though it was part of itinerary. One day we asked the driver to come back after an hour but he vanished and switched off his phone

Trip to KashmirOur Trip to Kashmir was a memorable one with Rizz Tour Travels, just before the travel we had fallen sick due to viral free but Mr. Mirr had taken utmost care to make us feel comfortable. The best part of it was the daily followup and the travel guide cum chauffeur whose name was also Mr. Mir he had arranged also gave us that special attention and care which is given in our homes when we are not well. Gulmohar trip was the best part of it . All in all I will say it was awesome experience. I would recommend Rizz Tour Travels for my family and friends who would plan a trip to Kashmir, so that you dont miss on hospitality or any spot to visit.
