    Charu's 4 days trip to Indore

    A very nicely organised trip by Neha and team. We went to Indore, Mandu, Omkareshwar, Maheshwar and Mandu. The hotels and food was really very nice. My parents really enjoyed a lot. The cab arranged was soo comfortable as the trip involves a long journey. The driver Sajid was really nice. He took a step more and guided us to different places and gave us a light on the history of each place. Being from South i felt language would be a problem but as requested they have arranged for a driver who can speak English which made our journey really very smooth and enjoyable. Overall a heartfelt thanks to Travel triangle Chandeep Singh , Club Seven Vaccations Neha and Mr.Sajid ( Car driver ) for making our vaccation really memorable and enjoyable one :) We covered a lot of places in the trip and here are some places that still remain fresh in my mind. These places are a must visit Maheshwar Holkar fort ( early morning ) Mandu Delhi gate Mandu Rani Roopmathi Palace Mandu Boaboa tree ( enroute to Mandu) Mandu Royal palace Mandu Hoshangshah tomb Omkareshwar Narmada boating Indore Sarafa market

    Arun's 6 days trip to Indore

    I would like to thank Club 7 Vacations for designing such a wonderful trip. It was a great and well-arranged trip. I shall surely consider my future trips through Club 7 Vacations. The best part of the tour was stay. This resort is definitely far better and beautiful than other stay arrangements. The concept, excellent restaurants and large variety of dishes offered in breakfast, this resort truly makes for a memorable holiday. That's not all, the resort also houses a spa center, a gaming zone and hosts events every evening was well-arranged.

    Arunabha Das

    Kolkata

    Arunabha's 10 days trip to Indore

    Gwalior: Hotel Landmark A professional hotel that provided standard room and substantial breakfast, however the restaurant food quality is not good. Tourists generally prefer homely food. Also tired senior citizens would prefer to have dinner at the hotel. Tourists also prefer to have a window to look out of. Orchha: Hotel Nilayam Heritage - No heritage at all. New small irregular hotel with rooms on the ground floor and a sparcely provided dining hall for breakfast only on first floor. Packed Breakfast only Aloo paratha. Nothing else. Khajuraho: Hotel Isabel Palace - Good hotel. Food quality good although much delayed. Bandhavgarh: Tiger Trails Resort: Good professionally maintained Resort with excellent service. Amarkantak: Hotel The Residency - Totally unprofessional. Poor service. Rude front desk. Had to leave shoes outside before entering reception. Monkeys disturb the TV antenna therefore TV never in order. No lift with dining/breakfast on the 2nd floor. No view to the outside from groundfloor room. Room with bed view of toilet. Leaking commode shower. Stiff flush tap. Attendant barge into room without knocking. No buffet. Stingy with breakfast. Do not serve as per order even in presence of Hotel owner in spite of repeated request. Jabalpur: Hotel Rahul. Good hotel. Professional service. Good food. Bandhavgarh Tiger Trail Resort.
