    Surbhi's 5 days trip to Pahalgam

    My trip was organised by Mushtaq and I must say it was very well planned. I went with my family and was scared due to the negative temp there as my parents were with me. I had a plan of 4 days 5 nights, we went to pahalgam, local srinagar and gulmarg. My parents were extremely happy and didn't want to come back. We stayed at Ennco resorts and anarkali houseboat. All the hosts were very warm, food was really good. We felt like home. I would recommend Dream Valley to you and dont worry they have got it. Our host there who drove us throughout Reyaz Ahmed was exceptionally good and warm. We felt like family . / home with him.

    Rashmibhat

    Bengaluru

    Rashmibhat's 6 days trip to Pahalgam

    Travel agency drivers can provide honest inputs on the activities involved around and what is the best way to do it, instead of blindly tying us up with the local guides there who have more interest on money and less interest on person s interest. This unhappy experience happened to us in Gulmarg where our personal numbers were shared with the local guides there and they were behind us to go with them for the local activities.
