    • Trip to kathmandu

      It was an excellent and the most memorable trip ever for us. We travel to various countries every year for vacation. This time we have chosen Nepal (based on our current budget). We traveled to Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Chitwan. Kathmandu was so good. Hotel Mahadev people were a bit lethargic fellows. Laughing on us all the times (I don't know why...!). Next, in Pokhara the hotel where we stayed was Splendid View. V Nice hotel. Hospitality from the crew is awesome. Particularly, Abhilash and Eeswar were very nice people in the hotel. Finally, we stayed in Hotel Royal Safari, where we felt a bit disappointed. This is due to the reasons that the ambiance is not so good (Many people were drinking liquor, smoking around us). We were a bit terrified due to the situation as ours was a family trip (3 Couples and 2 Kids). Also, in the hotel royal safari AC was not properly working and furthermore bedsheets were not clean. The hotel wala charged us 12,500 NPR for Kumrose Jeep Safari (hyderabad zoo will be far better than that), which was not so exciting as we thought. Overall, the first two hotels were so good. Therefore, it was a great trip. Really, the agent Kunal ji was so polite. We were a team of Eight (08) and have different opinions for everybody as far as the trip is concerned. Every time, Kunal was changing the itineraries without any irritation. That was really awesome feeling what I felt. We got some other quotes from different agents, even from some Nepali Agents. But, I have chosen Trip Master only because of Kunal ji. Really, he kept the trust that we kept on him throughout the trip. Special Thanks to Kunal Ji and especially Me along with my wife decided to go with Travel Triangle (if possible Kunal ji again) in our future trips. New people may feel scared a bit to go with this agency. But, I assure you to please go ahead for experiencing budget friendly and awesome trips. Further, we should thank Raushan Kumar Ji for his timely approach and concern on us. He was calling us regularly to verify our satisfaction. Really Thanking him from our side for his tremendous support. Finally, we would like to Thank an excellent driver of the era Binda Ji for bearing us till the end :). He was an excellent and the most experienced driver. The best part of him is his smile that he carried always throughout the trip. Thank you Binda Ji. Definitely, your trip will be memorable and go ahead without any hesitation. It is the best travel agency. I will definitely go with this agency for the next time undoubtedly. - Dr. Raghu Chandra Garimella

      We had booked nepal trip for 7N - 8D package through traveltriangle ( snowyoda agent). The hotels given were very good with good staff and services. Overall experience was decent The main points of concern 1. Horrible car service provided. Car was in good condition but faced lot of trouble with driver. He was not answering anything we asked, was rough driver and didnot bother much about taking care of passangers needs. He also didnot take us to some of the mentioned itiniary places 2. It was already informed that we prefer jain meal. Some hotels, we had to really face lot of troubles getting jain meal 3. Support from snowyoda representative was good but we didnot get much satisfactory solution to the driver issue. 1. Nagarkot was good location. We had a beautiful view from our room and had good time on our wedding anniversary there 2. Hotel staff at kathmandu hotel was very caring and helpful. Helped us wilth all our needs

      Brilliant trip! I'd suggest you stay at Pokhara for longer than Kathmandu. Great natural beauty and the Himalayas make everything worthwhile. The hotels were wonderful for our budget and the drive to various places was memorable.

      We made the plan in a very short time and Ashirwad Tours & travels makes it a complete success. We enjoyed the trip very much. Our cab driver Mr. Deepak was very good in his job. Because of Dashera we were not able to visit Manokamana Temple on the way to Pokhra. Love the place Pokhra. The hotel provided to us was The Pokhra Batika which was a awesome.. The balcony view, service everything was excellant. Recommended Ashirwad Tours & Travel to other travellers who are planning to visit Nepal. Fewa lake. Boating in fewa lake. Pashupatinath Temple at Kathmandu. Glimpse of Kailash from fewa lake.

      Excellent trip, however, would like to suggest to review the tie up with Hotel- Amdabalam in kathmandu. The staff was courteous, but the room service was poor and the restaurant was managed poorly. The stay at Landmark Hotel at Pokhara was excellent. The driver Mr. Ravi and Mr. Khem were perfect. Overall I strongly recommend Mr. Asutosh and team. The lunch and dinner stop, mid way between Pokhara and Kathmandu- managed by the driver Mr. Ravi.
