    Anand's 8 days trip to Malaysia

    Trip was excellent with few cons- Communication and daytrip n transfer. The local transfers was good, hotel value Thomson was good but small. hotel Arenaa star is not so clean but spacious and breakfast is horrible. Singapore- My first day, voucher was not delivered on airport as mentioned and nothing was communicated, i had to call them for the vouchers and day tour was to start by 10am but it started for us at 12.15pm ly since we were asked to wait at flyer for more than an hour and some shop which were no interested and because of that we were not able to spent much time in actual itinerary places. Malaysia- we had to wait in gentings for an hour since our co travelers were not provided with proper transfer to hotel or cable car tickets for there hotel transfer. Apart from this negative all the transfers and sightseeing was smooth. Overall 8/10 If they short out the issues than it will be a memorable one.

    Anubhav's 4 days trip to Malaysia

    I went to Malaysia trip. Rocking trip has organized my package for hotel and other amenities apart from flights. It was really good. Service providers was great. Just the one thing I didn't like is that airport drop was just 4 hours before flight which is very risky. As according to international flight we have to reach 2:30 hours before flight timing n we reached 2 hours before but luckily I was able to check in. I would recommend to take private ride to airport atleast 5 hours before flight as it's 40 kms from airport. Hope to take another foreign trip with them with some improvements.

    Flight timings hectic and for vegetarian it become more difficult. Not proper guidance provided on the security check policy due to which sunscreen , and other cosmetic products taken away at the airports by security staff. Hotels provided negligible options for veg meals. In 5 days trip less sight seeing provided by the agent.
