    • Trip to Madhya Pradesh

      We 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.

      Chose Traveltriangle as an experiment. Website assigned a tour helper who was supposed to contact me but could not contact for reasons known to her. I would not name her. Two travel agencies came in with their offer. One Bandhav Journey started with mistakes and went on correcting them with new mistakes but was prompt in replies. After continuous erroneous quotes I dropped them. The second Travel Agency Club7 Vacations had Neha, who was extremely courteous and prompt in her responses and planned the entire trip excellently well. She took care of every thing and was approachable for all clarifications. She however apparently did not know the cab provider and the cab service was miserable right from the word 'Go'. The driver Mr Sami Ullah Mobile (+91 9300675280) Taxi no. MP04TA2766, was a compulsive lier. Did not report at the airport with the placard, had to be called on phone for picking us up. Few of the lies are: had pain in the abdomen so could not report at the terminal, as against a journey of approximately 925 km. in total he exhorted the travel agency of a reported 1000/- extra claiming the run in excess of contracted 1750 km. In between he told that the cab had to be repaired for defective tyres and rim and the clutch plates were not capable of taking us to Vijeshan temple at Salkanpur, Bhopal. Never reported in time and always had excuses not sustainable. He continuously was on phone risking the lives of the cab occupants and was also instructing his caucus over phone to quote absurd mileage to their cab owners. He cheated the cab owner, the tour operator and the customers alike. The tour was otherwise organised in very good manner by Neha of Club7 Vacations, who also could not be contacted over phone on the last day of the tour. Lok Ranjan

      A very well managed and coordinated tour. The Hotels were all excellent. The stay in Indore , though comfortable, could have been managed in a Hotel in the outskirts . The places suggested for visit were worth visiting. Thanks to Club 7 Vacations for the well organized trip. A memorable and satisfying trip. We enjoyed beyond our expectations and value for money spent. Thank you Club 7 Vacations. Looking forward to a tour to Jabalpur, Khajuraho...... next year.

      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
