Ayush's 4 days trip to MaldivesI booked ticket for 2 everything was ok but the honeymoon special was not fulfilled as promised that was so disappointing. When the trip was made to be honeymoon n nothing went special what could be memories nothing.
Abhra's 8 days trip to MaldivesIt was fantastic planning this trip with bookitforgetit. The whole team starting from sahil, Anjali and the local contact everyone was very accommodative. We were travelling with a three year old kid at a time when the world was panicking over corona virus. Our guide cum driver Hashitha ensured that the car was thoroughly disinfected, took us to quaint but classy restaurants and maintained his own personal hygiene. The hotels/ resorts we stayed were top rated and we liked the experience overall. Our tour operator called us everyday to check whether everything was as planned and take feedback about our stay and travel. We loved Sri Lanka for its peaceful and welcoming nature. It's clean and an happy environment to be in. Right from cultural hotspots like dumbulla caves, sigiriya rock & Kandy temple to beaches like bentota and Mirissa to wildlife Safari in yala, it's a complete package in itself. The whale watching (we saw two types of whales - pilot whale and blue whale... And two types of dolphins) is an unforgettable experience. It was a week we'll spent. Thanks to bookitforgetit in helping me plan this out effortlessly. Whale watching @ Mirissa, Sigriya rock fortress and pinnawala elephant orphanage.
Shashankshashank's 4 days trip to MaldivesIt was good but it was not in heart of Maldives, it was restricted to resort only. Wanted to explore more of Maldives. So missed that The location was memorable and especially the rooms were beautiful. Struggle was woth the taste of Indian food
Puneet's 4 days trip to MaldivesNitish sony from step up travels helped in finalising my resort. I had few apprehensions initially, but, was sorted out by him to perfection. I also tried him contacting for resorts other than his suggestions, for them also he was patient and helped me. But due to my tight budget, I couldn't finalize that resort. Overall 5 ++ rating. Thank you step up travels and travel triangle for making my honeymoon a memorable experience. Complementary Sea plane transfer along with sewa boat transfer. So well arranged that we didn't require local currency all through our stay.
