Trip to KashmirHad a bad experience particularly with saarer travels.No response in true sense after the entire payment has been made.Was stuck up with some problem & called up surav by mail,but no response from his side too
Trip to Kashmir- Hotels mentioned in Itinerary are allotted. - My itinerary got disturbed on 1st day as the roads were closed. - As we need to reschedule our itinerary, I only had to manage everything and come up with the idea so that we won't miss any destination. - Tour agent was relaxed and almost about to skip my Sonmarg destination if I would not have contacted them. - Driver hindi was not fluent but still we somehow managed to understand. - At least Ahmad, the manager, booked Gulmarg hotel at 11th moment and was ready to take permission to allow us to go to Gulmarg on Wednesday even if roads were closed, but he sometimes misunderstood our situation and then started talking bit rudely. - Shikara ride was waste and that guy didn't even complete 1 hr ride, we told him about time but then he was arguing with us. - Overall I could not sit comfortably and could not enjoy my trip as we had to manage many things which are supposed to be managed by agent
Trip to KashmirEven after requesting the cab driver for local sighseeing of Badamvari garden (which is not known to tourists), the driver didn’t took us to the said location. Also on the last day the driver hurried us to drop us to airport even when we had time to see Hazratbal dargha. Eventually we couldn’t go n see the dargha. Tulip garden - Unlimited range of tulip flowers with different colour shades. Gulmarg - Snow everywhere, enjoyed alot playing in snow with my daughter. Pehalgam - Aru valley’s scenic beauty, Betaab valley n Chandawari (snow everywhere) Dudhpathri - A new destination not known to outsiders (tourists). Again superb cool temperatures, snow, dudhganga river. Srinagar - Shankaracharya temple, superb 360 view of city, an amazing panoramic view. Very good service by all the hotels as well as the houseboat members. Very warm n caring. Very informative.
Trip to KashmirHighly recommended! Everything was perfectly arranged. We were extremely satisfied with Young Bombay tours, Mrs Zara, has proven to be very courteous and helpful from the very beginning, trying to organise the best trip to srinagar.without young bombay and Our Wonderful tour guide and driver "Burhan, bhai this trip would be incomplete. We were accommodated at the Victory Hotel for 4 nights and one night at houseboat, which were awesome and very comfortable. Our tour guide was really patient and understand that people from different cultures and background would need extra time to absorb all the information about kashmir. Not only Burhan Bhaijaan, every person we met in kashmir was humble and nice, that we were just overwhelmed. Our tour was to visit at local sightseeing of srinagar, gulmarg, pahalgam, sonamarg, and one day in houseboat. But due to snow blockage at sonamarg, we decided to visit at Doodhpatri . This place is tremendous beautiful and mesmerising. Special thanks to Mrs Zara and burhan bhai, to arrange the doodhpatri trip despite poor road condition. This tour company is very professional and friendly. I highly recommended it, Mrs Zara will turn your trip into an unforgettable experience.
Trip to KashmirWe were a group of 9 adults and 4 children. Classic Holidays Kashmir provided us a customized Itinerary for 7N and 8D to travel to Srinagar, Sonamarg, Gulmarg, Pahalgam, katra and Amritsar. Our agent Rabiya was very diligent and patient enough in preparing our itinerary. It was a memorable trip for all of us. Though we had a few hurdles in our travel during our trip due to the convoy, Rabiya helped in rescheduling the hotel bookings and our driver Thanveer was very friendly and cooperative and he guided us very well to reach our destination with a private van that we had to book on our own to reach Katra on time so that we did not miss our helicopter to Vaishnodevi Temple. He was helpful in getting a good guide in Gulmarg and also helped us in getting cabs in Sonamarg. The following are the reviews for the hotels that we stayed: Royal Milad , Srinagar - very good hotel and good service Montreal house boat- food was good, but cleanliness and hygiene was an issue Moon view, Pahalgam - Good hotel but service was not very satisfactory Hotel Dolphin,Katra - good hotel and good food Hotel Roopa International, Amritsar - leaking taps, dining hall was under construction, some sewage problem so the lobby area was stinking. Se we definitely recommend Classic Holidays Kashmir. Thanks to Rabiya and Thanveer.
Trip to KashmirKashmir is really heaven on earth, and if anyone is travelling to Kashmir, I strongly recommend to choose Travel Home as their tour manager. My trip was a five star experience all because of Miss Safaa from Travel Home and our dear cab driver Aijaz, who treated us like family. Thank you, Travel Home. This has been such a wonderful trip, citing one memory as the best is really difficult. However, I personally got mesmerized by the beauty of Gulmarg. That was the best snowy moment of my life.
Trip to KashmirTrip is memorable for lifetime. Services provided by Mr Aamir Sb was par of excellence. Cab Driver Mr Helal was very nice. He was such a noble and kind man. At no places felt any bad experiences. All was well. Wishing in future, if I plan any trip to Kashmir Area, it would be my pleasure to be with Aamir Bhai(Kashmir Holidays). Thanks to the team. Gulmarg snow and horse riding at Pahalgaon is memorable. Excellent place to visit again. Local site in Srinagar like Nishat Bag and Tulip Garden is incomparable .
