    Ashutoshmjoshi's 4 days trip to Indore

    We travelled to Ujjain, Indore, Omkareshwar, Maheshwar and Mandu. Our travel was planned earlier but we decided the travel date at very short time of one day. Still all arrangements were done very well by Club7 team at that short notice. Excellent support before and during the travel. Whatever fe
    edback being given about hotel and travel was being implemented immediately. Neha was checking with us regularly about how the trip was going on. One area to improve is the Driver. He was very good in his driving and very reliable. He was local but was not showing any interest in explaining local things or nor telling us what we should see or not see. He was not even aware of few places. When we couldn't locate him in one of the tourist places, he was not ready to come to the place where we were waiting. He needs to be trained on basic hospitality with customers.

    Souvik's 3 days trip to Indore

    Day 1: We reached the hotel MPT Amaltas, Pachmarhi. Initially i was worried about hotel location and ambience, but Travel Agent Club 7 Vacations continues tried to convince me that not to worry about hotel. But when i reached Hotel, i impressed! We reached at 12:30hrs But Hotel Check in time as per
    guidelines is 14:00hrs, But Hotel Receptionist is too humble and understanding person, so that he provide us for early checking without any cost. After that, Receptionist asked for Lunch(Paid Basis) but fun fact is that, they did not charged for lunch. As we reached pachmarhi by car so we are too much tried, so we took rest. In the evening, We explore local markets by our own car. Day 2: Cab Operator which was arranged by Club 7 Vacations called me at 9am and told me to get ready on 9:30am, but unfortunately Gypsy arrived at 10am. Then we proceed to Handi Khoo, In Handi Khoo generally knows as Suicide Point is very beautiful, We have done Horse Riding, ATV Riding etc. After that we went to Apsara Vihar, small trekking to see waterfall, But when we reached View point of Apsara Vihar we all said "this is it" actually very thin waterfall you will see, from my point of view its not worthy. Then we went Bee Fall, we can bath here, but be cautious cause no safety was there. i recommend not to bath in Bee Fall. Then we went to Dhoopgarh, After reaching Dhoopgarh, we felt we are in heaven, Dhoopgarh is Awesome place to Sunrise and Sunset. We must visit here. After that, trip ended for the day. Day 3: Today Gypsy driver arrived on time, First we went to Gupt Mahadev Mandir then Bada Mahadev Mandir, then we headed to Pachmarhi Lake, we have done boating here. After that, we checked out from hotel, And Back to Normal Boring life. From Trip Starting to Trip End, Ms, Neha Nema from Club 7 Vacations continuously take follow up, whether we reached hotel or not, any complain after reaching room, regarding cab, tour. Whenever we faced any issue we called to Neha Mam, everytime she received our call and help us

    Our experience was way Soul satisfying after a very long time. Pachmari is absolutely beautiful place to visit. All the resorts were good - especial remark to the Rock end manor and Tawa resort ..staff was helpful and polite with no hassle..food was delicious but on the very same page Bison resort d
    idn't met the standards though we managed any how. The trip ended with a blink but we had a good time ,the Bee fall was the main attraction ..the water felt heavenly..all the temples were well maintained at extreme locations..jungle safari was fun - Our guide was humble and dedicated to show us tiger ..other than that we saw Bison , spotted deers, antelope, wild boars ,monkeys and various migratory birds .Boat safari was also fun but we didn't explored much due to low level of water..the last day on Tawa resort was the perfect end to the trip with the breath taking view ..had a life time moment at Tawa Dam and captured the view in soul to cherish at hard times..had a wonderful time after a while ..we'll try to visit again ..thankyou
