    First of all thanks to Disha, who encouraged me to take this package and guided me a lot. Rest everything was fine. The behavior of the hotel staff was very good. They took good care of us. Hotel's services was good, food was good. Also, cab drive Adil's nature was very familiar. Polite behavior,
    soft nature, and caring. Next time I would like to prefer this driver. Thank you so much everyone :) We enjoyed every moment.

    Kaushik's 6 days trip to Pahalgam

    The arrangements were good and we were all set. The driver Nazir was more like a personal guide and a brother who guided us really well. The only disappointment were the hotels. They were clean and comfy but there was no heating in the rooms. The weather was hovering below 10 and the only hotel whi
    ch was great was Hotel Alpine Ridge in Gulmarg. All in all it was a great trip except for the houseboat stay and hotels.

    A's 6 days trip to Pahalgam

    Pros - Ms. Meherin was very supportive while booking and guidance and also take feedback between the trips. - They also arrange the sim as our sim was not working there. - They also provided a good driver(Mr.Sahid ) who also guide us to every place. (Extra one star for him :) ) Cons - Complimentary
    shikara ride is of no use, just a time wastage. He takes us to the Meena bazaar only and drop to our houseboat. He was also rude as we didn't agree on his quoted price. For a proper round, he asked for an extra 4500. Once we reached the houseboat, we booked another one at 800rs only. So be alert while paying to them. - We faced multiple problems with hotels. Be careful while selecting the recommended hotels. - first Pahalgam hotel (very bad experience) - Phalgam Retreat Detailed Review - https://goo.gl/maps/kTerk4d37xR4Szsj9 - second Srinagar hotel - Hotel Aqeeq Towers - Average Experience Detailed Review - https://goo.gl/maps/6Gkvpp1PMK4avrHE9 - third houseboat - Anarkali - Good Experience > Houseboat staff is very supportive. >Houseboat is well maintained and you will enjoy your stay there. > They also provide an electric blanket. Just recommendation is to opt only for a day in winter to get the experience as it's too cold there. Please avoid recommending the above hotels. These hotels are not good except houseboat.
