Trip to Maharashtradriver doesn't know localities around pune lot of time need to see in maps and time wastef
Trip to MaharashtraMy trip to Pune was good. Driver was good but using lot of mobile while driving and skipping some sightseeing places. Overall my trip was good
Trip to MaharashtraThe services of Travel Agent was very poor, they promised something and delivered something else. They were very nice untill the payment was not completed, once I paid in full, they changed their tone. Very rude and unprofessional. The hotel booking was not right. They promised us to give a balcony room and booked a ground floor room. When we asked them the lady who arranged everything was not ready to even talk, she transferred the call to someone else... They ruined our trip. I wish I could give them a negative rating...

It was like we were taking the driver for a tour rather than he taking us. When we pay more money,they shld provide us a good driver ,but the driver was very veryyyyy bad .
