Trip to KashmirI must say Kashmir as a place is amazing and underrated destination in the recent times. Zippgo agent Aalia was extremely responsive during the pre-trip planning and queries, however the response while on trip was not so great (During the Pahalgam stay) Travel dates - 16 March - 21 March 2019 ; Whether - Winter, occasional sunshine, Rainy, Snowfall for a few hours. Pros - We had opted for a 4 start accommodation. Great deal and economic package, Great food included. Cons - Agent was not able to customize our package, considering the whether was winter and most of the places that we visited were snowing we would have expected some customization. There was no much difference in Phalagam and Gulmarg, Both the places were covered with snow. We absolutely did nothing in Pahalgam. To visit Gulmarg to our hotel, we had to hire Chained vehicle from Tangmarg, which was 1600. however I found a lot of private vehicles without chain go up til the Gulmarg taxi stand, and from this point the hiring of vehicle would have been much cheaper, I was highly disappointing by this. At Srinagar the local sightseeing was not much great due to the winter fall season, I found no point in visiting the bagh. Now coming to the hotels we stayed - Ennco Resorts, Srinagar - The booking was done for a Executive suite, but I was given a deluxe room instead, upon some phone calls and discussions the rooms were changed. We had a birthday celebration planned and had a candle light dinner and a cake included in the package, however these arrived very late and we had to make our own arrangements with the hotel (The cake, candle, flower petals and the setup costed us 1750 rupees) Hotel staff was great, food was great, clean towels and bedding, Bathrooms clean. Kolahoi Green Gulmarg - The hotel was amazing, I was in love with the interiors of this place, Amazing food a very warm place, I wish I had stayed there longer than a day. This was the nest hotel in the whole trip. The washrooms had heaters, what more do you need :D Hotel staff was great, food was amazing, clean towels and bedding, amazing interiors, clean Bathrooms. Pine Spring hotel, Pahalgam - We were taken to a room in block A, and apparently this is the only bock which has central heating. the room here was horrible, dirty bedding, chipped off paint on the walls. upon showing dissatisfaction the staffed showed us around a number of rooms in the other block C (Block B was under renovation) and did I tell you this hotel has no lift. I had a sprained feet and I was taking stairs all the while. The room in Block C had no central heating, a heater with loud noise. upon a lot of discussion the heater was replaced. Hotel staff was great, food was the best, decently clean bedding, good interiors, tiny but clean Bathrooms. Wangnoo Sheraton house boats, Srinagar - Very nice place, very cozy and warm. amazing staff. food could have been better, but considering this was houseboat i was just fine. this house boat is in Nigeen lake which is much serene and calm than the Dal lake. Staff was great, food was average, Towels could have been more cleaner, bedding was clean, amazing interiors, clean Bathrooms. The Car driver Irshad and Nadeem were good, friendly, informative, and safe drivers, they helped us buy a lot of handicrafts and gave us some local tips too :) This trip will forever be remembered, Kashmir is extremely safe and the people here are lovely, amazing hospitality and I just hope next time I visit Kashmir I do it during July-Aug. I wish lots of peace and happiness to this state.
Trip to KashmirThe overall trip was a good experience. However, we were told that Tulip garden is included as a part of the trip. After going there, we realise that the Tulip Garden is open only in the month of April. This was not advised to us by the Traveller. Other than this, we were also not dropped at Gulmarg. We were stopped at Tangmarg and the had to book a cab on our own. This was not mentioned in the itinerary.
Trip to KashmirWe recently had a trip to Kashmir, the trip was well guided with the best service. The Mr.sameer trip guide did a great job. Keep it up. All the best
Trip to KashmirThe cab did not take to gulmarg instead we had to book another cab paying extra money. Also flexibility was requested at the very start but still the agent denied covering 2 areas in same day even though it was part of itinerary. One day we asked the driver to come back after an hour but he vanished and switched off his phone
Trip to KashmirService was good from Classic holidays I would recommend them to be the facilitator for anyone who is traveling to J&K.

Trip to KashmirWe had a winter trip in Jan 19 to Gulmarg. We have chosen Uniglobe. Their support was excellent, throughout the journey. Both the agent and the driver were caring. Very good follow up.
Trip to KashmirOur Trip to Kashmir was a memorable one with Rizz Tour Travels, just before the travel we had fallen sick due to viral free but Mr. Mirr had taken utmost care to make us feel comfortable. The best part of it was the daily followup and the travel guide cum chauffeur whose name was also Mr. Mir he had arranged also gave us that special attention and care which is given in our homes when we are not well. Gulmohar trip was the best part of it . All in all I will say it was awesome experience. I would recommend Rizz Tour Travels for my family and friends who would plan a trip to Kashmir, so that you dont miss on hospitality or any spot to visit.
Trip to KashmirTravel agent (Zippgo) were absolutely spot on and knew what they were doing. Aaliya Showkat and team made a very good and a feasible plan based upon the budget and were always receptive and cordial in terms of the needs of the guests. Driver, Mr. Irshad was extremely pleasant and accommodative. He made things even more easier for us. Hotel staff (Victory Inn) were very nice and easy to deal with. The trip was very nice. The trip to Pahalgam was very good! The roads leading to Pahalgam are very close to nature.
