Trip to BhopalTravel agent was very cordial and was following up every day and if something's were out of place ( like power issue in a hotel), alternative arrangements were made immediately. Hotels were bit let down, had asked for 3* hotels, but they were max 2*. Also, tourism starts at Oct, but peaks only in Nov..agent knew this and could have suggested alternative places (e.g dhuandaar falls was a total letdown due to floods, could have planned alternative if floods were known) Has to be khajuraho, Gwalior..bee falls

Trip to BhopalOverall experience was nice. Reg Hotel at Jabalpur we had already offered our opinion. Pl try to avoid that hotel for future guests. Other hotels were ok. We had opted for stay at Orchha. But it was without knowing abt place. U can offer stay at Zasi rather than at Orchha which is more convenient. Bedhaghat was superb.Duwadhar fall also very nice. Bandhavgarh tour was nice. We could see Zasi Fort. As Rani Laxmibai was from Maharashtra, it was a proud feeling for us to visit the place.

Trip to BhopalWe 6 family members traveled to M.P. We booked the tour through Travel Triangle. This was our 3rd tour through Travel Triangle. The tour was well planned and managed by Club 7 Vacations through their team leader Neha Madam. We traveled to Ujjain, Omkareshwar, Maheshwar, Mandu and Indore. The driver Mr. Pintu was courteous and soft spoken. The hotels at Ujjain- Park Palace, Omkareshwar- Narmada Resort MPTDC , Maheshwar - Narmada Retreat were excellent. We purchased the traditional Maheshwari sarees . Seen the temples and beautiful ghats built by Devi Ahilya Holkar. The hotel at Indore- Golden Retreat was good but the restaurant have bar hence not comfortable for family. The hotel at Mandu - Jahaj Mehel was good but the food was not satisfactory and there were 2 big dogs and honey bees hence due to fear we could not enjoy. The manager was also rude. If Club 7 vacations have provided MPTDC hotel at Mandu it would be a better choice as same was readily available being a lean season.
