Trip to KashmirOur travel organiser Mr. MEET is too awesome. Very friendly and Co operative The stay in Gulmarg and the snow fall was the best moments of our trip very unforgettable and created a good memories too to cherish
Trip to Kashmiroverall the trip was nice but there were 2 very very loose points - 1. on our arrival day we were taken to the sites, directly with our luggage in the car. they should have taken us to the hotel first so that we would have freshen up. 2. we were left with random people 2 times. though nothing happened but it was blind spot.
Trip to KashmirBatool was the best travel agent! From contacting me ahead of time to make sure all preparations were in order to staying in contact throughout the trip to make sure we were able to do all of the things we wanted, she was organized and responsive. We had the trip of a lifetime even in three short days. Best of all her package was the most inclusive of all the bids I received on travel triangle. We enjoyed her services so much we have recommended her to family who also plan to visit Kashmir in the coming months. The suite at Hotel Kolahoi Green in Gulmarg was stunning with amazing views and amenities.

Trip to KashmirOverall experienced is good, due to snowfall we missed some of places, rest is awasm. Gulmarg experiences
Trip to KashmirI was traveling to Kashmir for the first time and was quite confused initially which travel group to choose. After speaking to Ms. Anjum from Milli group of tours and travels, I was satisfied with the package they were providing. But what really impressed me was the service. Any requirements from our end were met with just one phone call and Ms. Anjum responded to our requests as swiftly as one could ask for. From the driver,Mr Arzoo, who was very co-operative and helpful to the multiple stays in Srinagar,Pahalgam and Gulmarg and to the car arranged, everything was spot on. I cannot thank Milli and Ms. Anjum enough for giving the best possible Kashmir trip and I would highly recommend Milli group of Tour & Travels.
Trip to KashmirMy recent trip to Kashmir with my wife became a heavenly episode with Young Bombay Travels. we had always dreaded to go to Kashmir but travel triangle made our stay absolutely safe and joyous. We planned a 6 days tour to Srinagar, Sonamarg , Gulmarg and Pahalgam. Omar Bhai would call us every morning to ensure our wellness. We were provided wonderful house boats in Dal Lake, memories of a life time. Hotels, hospitality and food were awesome. The cherry on the cake was our driver Jahangir Bhai who guided us all through with all his knowledge and experience. We look forward to making more trips with you. Thanks so much Young Bombay Travels. We wish you all our best wishes. We had an absolutely incredible trip that was very low stress due to the tremendous effort of the travel team! My wife and I could not have been happier with our experience working with this travel agency. We're sorry that we can only give this travel agency 5 stars -- we'd have preferred 10 stars or more! Special thanks to Zara and Lubna for excellent communication. Keep up the good work guys. Thanks and love you all.
Trip to KashmirHotels and houseboat provided were very good. Also the cab for travel was good but the driver didnt help us much with places to watch in Gulmarg which resulted in more expenses for us. We completely felt like the driver misguided us here in Gulmarg with the local guide. Umeena the travel agent, helped us throught in this tour and responded very fast. Definitely travel designers provided great service but the only thing to improve for them is to guide/educate visitors about the places and local guides. Also if they can give payment options through credit card it would be nice. Enjoyed Sonamarg and Dal Lake houseboat. The New Zealand (name of the houseboat) was great and the responsible person of that boat had taken care of us and also I want to mention that the night our group stayed in Dal Lake houseboat was the coldest in Srinagar in 28 years with formation of ice on the lake surface.
