Very happy that I chose you as my travel partner. Only issue we faced was the unexpected and random changes of Cab dr
    iver without any prior information, the agent could've informed us that the driver will be changed. This sudden change made us feel uncomfortable in such a new state.

    It was overall good experience. We travelled and stayed at different different hotels. Most of them had good service. While traveling our vehicle brokedown and driver arranged another vehicle which had another driver. He was doing rash driving always in call while driving. Old Driver arranged the gu
    ide for us and while visiting Gulmarg he overcharged us for the skiing and sledding. Never ever overtrust the guide and driver. travel agent service was really good. She was helpful thorough out the journey.

    Sayali's 6 days trip to Pahalgam

    We travelled to Kashmir in March 2021. It was a very good experience. Due to a family emergency we discontinued our vacation and the Travel home team helped us out at the last minute exit. All hotels were good, except the montreal hotel in Srinagar. Previously, they suggested me Hotel (Asian park),
    but I chose the Montreal hotel. They had good staff at the hotel, but the food was not good. Cab and driver - We were assigned a vehicle and a driver (Shabir) who made sure that we felt comfortable, guided us regarding sightseeing and also suggested us a good resturant for lunch. A special thank you to Farah from Travel home. She was in constant contact with us and took good care of everything till the time we landed in Mumbai. We highly recommend them, as the trip was really well managed and organised.
