    • Trip to Madhya Pradesh

      I travelled with TT second time. The first tour was in Oct 2018 Kerala and recent one to Pachmarhi & Madhai. TT services are very professional and gave me ample of options to choose & pick my destinations. The tour planner takes regular follow up, not annoying beyond the limits of irritation. This was a good thing about TT and agents from TT. Our Pachmarhi tour was planned as a family tour through Club 7 Vacations. The Tour Planner Neha was excellent in her communication and follow up. She helped me well to meticulously plan the trip. Also the back up on phone during the ongoing tour was good. I got regular calls from Neha asking if there were any hassles . She helped us tide over minor inconveniences. One experience I would like to share. We went for Jungle Safari at Madhai Tiger Reserve. I had paid online charges of 1500 through TT/Club7 of which the receipt was with me. While booking the gypsy at the reception, forest dept. clerk told me to pay 2360 /- in addition as per the tariff card, which I paid without protesting as I thought it was meant to be by rules. When the driver dropped us at railway station on the way home, he returned that amount saying I got a call from tour manager that the payment was included in the package. The driver apologized politely and offered me money back; saying what's the point in cheating Sirji, Duniya to imandari se hi chalti hai na!! I was touched. I was unaware of the refund to be made he could easily have cheated me. Thanks to TT/club 7 for all the support and services.

      The agent was helpful. However, faced trouble with safari bookings in kanha. Also, the property at bandhavgarh (natures heritage) suggested by the agent needs serious upkeep. Spotting tigers made up for it though. The driver was really helpful and courteous. Had a decent trip overall.

    • 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
