Sudeshna's 2 days trip to Bhubaneswar

It was a very nice trip. We have a very good experience

Sudeshna Banerjee Pune

Shalinee's 4 days trip to Bhubaneswar

The trip was a great experience. Our trip was planned for 4 days, where we tavelled to Puri, Konark, Chilka and Bhubaneshwar. Along with us, we also had elderly people. The experience was really nice and relaxing. Our travel agent helped us at every step of the way, whether it is choosing a great hotel, or suggesting us jain food outlets to eat, or planning the trip in a way we could enjoy. The hotel itself was excellent in itself. The food preparation was phenomenal, and coupled with great hospitality from the staff, we had wonderful time at the locality. The only qualm we had was the hotel's location, which was quite far from the temple, and we could not go to the temple aside from planned times. However, the beach the hotel had was divine, with a quiet atmosphere and a beautiful sunrise. The driver was another person who made the trip great. He drove very comfortably, which helped us a lot especially as we had elderly with us. He helped us everywhere in our trip. Overall, Inde D Voyage helped us make our trip the wonderful experience that it was.

Pradeep's 7 days trip to Bhubaneswar

Very great experience with TravelTriangle and its tour agent Mr. Shibashish (Inde D Voyage). I took the Cab service from TravelTriangle and they connected me to the Mr. Shibashish (Inde D Voyage). He is very nice and understanding person. I asked him for the drivers having good behavior and non drinking habits and he provided the best drivers Mr. Santosh and Mr. Sanatan Mohanty. They were also nice human beings and having familiar behavior during the trip and were fully awared of my trip area i.s. Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Konark, Puri, Gopalpur, Chandragiri etc. Next time I will also book the hotels through TravelTriangle for Odisha trip. Thank You TravelTriangle and Mr. Shibasish.

Pujari Zigisha Law Bhubaneswar

Agkhandekar's 7 days trip to Bhubaneswar

I am not a very organised traveller sort of person, I usually prefer going with the flow, let the road surprise you kinda person and hate fixing itinerary before starting the travel itself. But my husband on the other hand, is totally opposite and more organised. So, for our second wedding anniversary we decided to do a week's worth road trip to Odisha. As we were to take our own vehicle, we wished more to explore rather than just to travel. We came to know about Travel Triangle through a friend, so we approached them and came in contact with Shibashish(agent). We conveyed him a blur idea of what we were looking for and he came to the rescue!!! He suggested some extra-ordibary home stays and unusual travel destination worth visiting, most importantly considering our wish to explore, he addressed us a whole list of all the tribal villages on our route, which are known for authentic odiya paintings, handloom art, original brass articles and the list is never ending. As we travelled, we came to know about the rich art culture and heritage value of Odisha and many lesser known rather unknown facts that we overlook as a tourist. These guys made our anniversary trip so special and enriching. People everywhere were genuine and friendly. It was a memorable trip which had all the ingredients of a perfect vacation and travel. The win of travel triangle was that they were able to understand our expectations and make a itenary suiting perfectly to those!! In the end, we were left with a feeling of shortage of time and a wish to come back again with even more time in hand! Our best memory is funny and eyeopening kinda one. So after visiting some of the best home stays and resorts, we came to Mangalajodi, it was almost our last stoppage. It was a simple village, hotel was regular and neat. But we were overwhelmed by the previous stays so weren't clear about the point of visiting the place. As we met the Hotel manager, he informed that the place is a home of 216 different species of migratory birds. We were not very much into bird watching and photography still we decided to give it a try. So early morning we were to start our 3 hour boating ride. As soon as we reached Chilika lake and stepped on the boat, it was a whole different world. Such a blissful beauty and heavenly sight of chilika wetlands where hundreds of birds were roaming all over the lake. It was the most unforgettable part of the journey!!!

Akhilesh's 4 days trip to Bhubaneswar

Overall trip was good . Driver is very friendly but hotel at puri was below the expected level. Puri beach moments.

Akhilesh Bhatnagar Bilaspur

Motwanihetal's 3 days trip to Bhubaneswar

It was a wonderful trip. We didn't have to worry about missing anything on the itinerary as our travel agent was always there to help us. Even in testing times like Covid, we managed to have a carefree trip. Shibashis was always willing to help us and we didn't feel we were in a new unknown place all by ourselves. Orissa is truly India's best kept secret. Thanks Travel Triangle for making it a smooth trip. Since I am a bird watcher, my best memory of Orissa is Chilika lake where we were outnumbered by birds by thousands. It was a paradise indeed. Wish could have stayed there longer.
