    • Trip to Indore

      Travel 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

      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.
