      1. The type hotel room which was told at the time of booking not given. Called several times the point of contact but they had not provided any solution. Then we had to switch the room by paying extra money. 2. The driver was not friendly at all. I had already told them senior citizens will went and good driver needed. But who cares. 3. The travel agent named Rambabu told me that he will call me by providing a solution. Nobody called still now. Horrible experience. Will think twice before booking from Travel Traingle. NA

      We were 5 ladies travelling to Bandhavgarh for jungle safari. The trip was well arranged and planned. The accommodation, staff service, ambiance of the resort was really good. The food options were less, however i would still rate it as best for making things available in a place of dense jungles. The transport facility was also punctual and responsive. I would definitely recommend travel triangle, especially Mr Alan Sahu for arranging everything so smoothly with his contacts and for having quick responsive attitude anytime. Thank you so much Alan Sahu :)

      Overall 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.

      Traveled 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.

      Booking through Travel Triangle is hassle free. Agents listed are quick and more friendly. Its home like feel from day one of booking to end of Trip. Rewa Resorts at Omkareshwar , Hotel Panchawati at Maheshwar and Hotel Atharva at Indore are best choices of Hotel in Itenary. We have planned in such way that we check-in at destination a day before i.e in evening to plan darshans and holy poojas of next day. This saves time and gives peace of mind to cover all interested poojas at holy place.
