    It was a great experience to be in Kashmir. We had opted for 3 nights 4 days through Travel Triangle. We were happy with the response of the Kashmir Holiday operator and driver Mudda ser wad prompt and was experienced. Hotel staff were cordial and accommodative, Food was good. Room was nice. We got a upgrade by operate as good will gesture. House boat experience could have been better since the time we travelled was very cold and chilly with snow fall. Rest was great. Trip to Gulmarg and Pehlgaon.

    Srinivasan Venkateswaran

    Jammu

    Srinivasan's 4 days trip to Srinagar

    Memorable experience . Young Bombay boat house experience was excellent. Boat owners are very lovable. Mr.Omar family gave me excellent service. Close to gate number 9. With Driver experience was average only. To be improved by the way of listening their guests. Totally Unforgettable experience. Jammu is quite ok. but Srinagar is full of military deployment. But lifestyle is normal. Not to worry to visit Srinagar.

    Prasaanth's 8 days trip to Srinagar

    Nice trip overall. But would have been better if hidden charges were removed. Tur Tuk is an amazing place to be in. Please stay in Tur Tuk atleast for a day if you are visiting Ladakh.

    Arnab Bose

    Kolkata

    Arnab's 8 days trip to Srinagar

    Peacock travels is a well managed and professional company but in my case they didn't provided the well located hotels and traveller friendly driver. Hotels were well maintained but very far from visiting spot. We although knew about it bcz our budget was on lower side. But biggest let down was the driver who was a bore and he was trying various tricks that will make us cancel our plan or change itinerary. Yusmarg was a miss citing security reasons. Still I do want to recommend peacock for this vacation. They might be best of the lot in Srinagar. But next time I will plan this tour by my own. Many, apart from the immense beauty of nature, I loved the people who were welcoming tourist. They were so down to earth and caring.
