Trip to Madhya PradeshTrip was good but I feel it was overpriced. We were made to wait for safari in the evening. We started safari one hour late. Services in Vrindavan Gopal resort are not upto the mark. Its clientele is limited to wedding guests only, thier staff is not trained to handle hotel customers.
Trip to Madhya PradeshIt was overall a very good trip. But madhya Pradesh being a huge state, the distance between two places is quiet large, hence it's quiet some journey. the places are worth seeing though. the driver provided to us was a very good person but he did not have much knowledge of the roads so it became an issue at times. kanha forest safari and boating at marble rocks.
Trip to Madhya PradeshWe finalised the trip with Club7 vacations after evaluating 3 to 4 tour operators suggested and short listed by Travel Triangle as I liked their plan and itinerary. Tapas and his associate, Neha from Club7 explained all the pros and cons very efficiently before finalising the trip. She was attentive, courteous and always gave a patient ear to our requirements. Everything was as per commitment and plan. The hotels suggested were good, vehicle and driver were efficient. It was an overall good experience and a good value for money deal. Maheshwar was a surprise package as the ghat at Narmada river was amazing and beautiful which was not expected by me. Boating in Bhedaghat amongst marble rocks in Jabalpur was a great experience. I had seen it in many hindi movies and had thought that it must have been shot abroad but was surprised to know that this was the place. Pachmari was enchanting. Kanha had beautiful forests although we were not lucky enough to spot a tiger. Had heard that Indore is the first and Bhopal, the second cleanest city in India and indeed it was true.
Trip to Uttar PradeshEven though the quote was little high for the rooms, the overall experience was satisfactory.

Trip to AndamanTraveled for the first time using TravelTriangle and Bandhav Journeys to Madhya Pradesh. Bandhav Journey is extremely responsive to all the requests and questions. The whole trip was excellently coordinated and smooth. Whole team was available all the time. few hiccups arose but they were not due to the travel agent but du to last minute location changes. If Local coordinator would have been more vocal, this could have been avoided. But still, issues were resolved immediately. Both Alan Sahoo and blocal agents were available on call and took ownership and sorted out the issues.Drivers provided were very helpful during all trip.

Trip to Uttar PradeshWe went to Varanasi thru Travel triangle (DeeJohn Local tourism supplier) and the trip was fantastic. First thing is DeeJohn's patience to give us to different options for hotel booking. I would like to thank the driver & Guide Mr. Kapildev Pandey. He is punctual , guided us properly and drove smoothly to all the places. Ofcourse due to short time, we could not cover all but has seen most of the places. The card was in good condition. Would like to travel with DeeJohn and TT in future. All the best and thanks again for your services.
