Narayana's 11 days trip to Penang

First of all both me and my friend had booked the trip together with our families. He booked a different flight for both of us from Singapore to Malaysia and didn't arrange for the pick up from Airport to the hotel in Kuala Lumpur for my friend. Also because of lack of co-ordination, we could not do the half day city tour that day and we had to squeeze in this on another day. They had charged us for the fast pass at universal studios in Singapore but finally gave us only the regular pass. We had to separately pay 60 Singapore Dollars per person to purchase that. Overall i would not recommend this agent to anyone. At one point of time we were at mercy of this guy because the plan was not in place and that too this happened after we reached Kuala Lumpur.

Kumari Priyadarshini Phuket

Sumit's 4 days trip to Penang

4 star hotel with good name was provided on the recommendation of the agent. When we reached hotel they were not ready to provide room before their check in time of 3pm. On the last day hotel power supply outage was there and we had to be without electricity for about 5 hours in the midnight. Really bad experience. Trip was ok, points were ok city tour could have been more.

Sumit Bist Ahmedabad

Prasun's 5 days trip to Penang

I am quite happy with the trips and all around management of the same. Most of the things were good with few exceptions and that might be because of some lack of knowledge from my side or their side but still overall experience is good. Anjali - with whom we planned our trip was nice, coordinating and humble throughout the trip and even at onsite destination she was regularly in touch. Malaysia local tourist agency was also very professional and supportive. Pick-up, drop, local guiding, behavior, in all spheres they maintained their decency. So on gathering all the points on the scale of 10, I will give them 7.5. Langkawi hotel , Bella Vista, its sea side view and location in the city with all around facilities including Indian restaurant nearby for food gives us good experience there.
