                Deepti's 7 days trip to Himachal

                So we were looking for a good package for a vacation to Himachal. Of the various quotes offered, we chose the services offered by Travel Vichar. After a lot of discussion and negotiation, we chose three resorts and destinations - Shimla, Manali and Dharamshala. The vacation started off well. The cab driver, Kushal, was courteous, polite and helpful. As we had a senior citizen with us, he made sure that she was comfortable. Our stays at Shimla and Manali were great (in fact, the hotel chosen for Shimla - Grand Welcome - was a last minute choice as everything else was booked and we didn't get anytime to research it. But looking back, this hotel gave us the best experience. Ashapuri at Manali was a good hotel but the architecture was inconvenient for us. Our main issue happened at Dharamshala. The hotel that we booked - Quartz Himalayan Brothers - had very shady vibes - didn't seem like a place where a family would choose to stay. The menu was limited as there was no kitchen in the hotel. They were sourcing the food from elsewhere. Food taste was so-so and we aren't quite sure of the quality as later my son had an upset tummy. We had time and again emphasized to Travel Vichar that we have a senior citizen with us. Yet the hotel refused to give a proper hotel room - saying that "You didn't specify that you wanted mountain view". When we contacted Travel Triangle/Travel Vichar, they said that this is general level of hotels in Dharamshala. To this we say, that the travel agent should have warned us that compared to Shimla and Manali, hotels in Dharamshala is not that great. We should have been offered another alternative or we would have extended our stay in Shimla Manali or whatever. The travel agent didn't even bother to check in with us, despite knowing that we were not comfortable there. In fact, they - the manager - spoke rudely with us, adding insult to injury. What also happened was that Unfortunately, we had a situation late at night - my son had an upset tummy - for which we called the reception. But nobody received the phone, as everybody was asleep. We had to deal with the situation ourselves. Our advice to anyone planning a trip to Himachal is try to avoid Travel Vichar. But this bad experience of the hotel should not take away from the beauty of the place. Dharamshala is a serene place with great views - with a generous scoop of spirituality. Just don't book a hotel through Travel Vichar. Snowfall at Manali - it was an unexpected and memorable. Zip lining and yak rides. White Water rafting at Kullu in the playful Beas river. Snowcapped mountains at Manali and roaring and rippling of the Beas River through Manali. Horse riding at Shimla

                Siri's 7 days trip to Himachal

                We enjoyed our trip with Guruji though there were some communication barrier with our cap driver who can not speak English but things could be eventually solved out. We have faced unexpected problems during our visit to Manali; one member lost her purse and passport and the other got a stray dog bite while walking in downtown. But with our skilled and supportive driver despite limited English, my friend's passport could be located and eventually being picked up on the way of our next destination to Amritsar, thanks god. The member who got dog bite could reach to the public hospital in Manali for treatment. So thank you to Mr. Mukthiar, the driver, for the good job. I also like to thank you Avinash and Rehka for their support and fast responsive to our questions and needs from the beginning through our itinerary. I will definitely come back and choose Guruji Travels for our next trip.

                First driver was not knowing any places. Bcz of him we missed some places. No free time we got to rest. It was fully a tight packed travel. Shimla hotel was hopeless. No water in the morning. Bedbugs were there in the room. In Manali hotel was nice. An adventurous trip to rohtang pass.

                Abhijit's 8 days trip to Himachal

                Itinerary could have been better. Hotel locations at Shimla & Manali did not meet expectations. Hotel & services at Manali were substandard, the requirement was for 3 star deluxe / 4 star, whereas accomodation was provided at a sub standard hotel. Cab driver was very good and cooperative.

                Had a pleasant tour to Shimla & Manali. My travel agent, Ansh Mehta had been in constant touch with me to make sure my tour is going well. The arrangements, the hotels and cab services made by the travel agent were good as well.

                Shashi's 7 days trip to Himachal

                tour is well coordinated by the agent and agent has communicated with me regularly for any issues and clarifications and she is very approachable. only thing that made me unhappy is that they have wasted my day by giving a wrong distance to the driver for some place and driver denied me taking there and they give me some other place which is not even worst visiting. except for that day all the tour is very good and I enjoyed and I thank the agent for planning this well.

                Bikinaha's 7 days trip to Himachal

                Among the whole trip, the cab experience could have been better. The driver was fine, but was not very cooperative and was insisting on what he feels the best. He did not switched on AC when it was required after repeated request. He did guide us well for the places to be visited however, was not transparent interms of the extra charges. The driver should consult with the customers before taking the customers to any other agent for further activities and should also be clearing the pros and cons. He also always pushed us to start very early around 7 AM everyday wherever we wanted to go. His assumption was that, if we start late after 7, we would get stuck in traffic. And this was not the case, we did not get stuck in any traffic during our whole tour. I think the agent should clearly specify these timing beforehand. To just visit 20 KM beyond solang valley I was charged 2500 rupees which seems too high given it was just 30 min journey one way. Visiting Sissu lake.

                Mani's 6 days trip to Himachal

                My experience is very bad with travel traingle. 1. Agent Sahil offered me a quote of 70k when i selected hotels and explained him what I was looking for like river side view, 4 star etc he offered me few good hotels lile allure grand in manali and a hotel in Dalhousie. Thsi conversation happend and advance was paid in jan- Feb because he said this will confirm my booking. 2. Also paid my second installment no one informed tht my itenary has changed. 3 few days before my planned trip, Kewal contact me and informs tht he cannot book allure as it was not available, this is 3 months after paying advance. 4.He also advised me to change Dalhousie as it was long and trying journey. 5. Which means now I'm paying 85k for a downgraded hotel and less killometer. 6. I don't want to cancel anything last minute and I agreed on condition that hotel wud be top class. 7. A day before journey I was informed driver would contact me for pickup from Delhi. This didn't happen 8. On the day i tried contacting the agent multiple times and was finally able to make contact with driver. 9.after a long and trying journey reached the hotel assigned, hotel was not bad but the room assigned was average. This was a basic room not what was promised. 10. Regarding itenary driver was not informed about the places. According to divert he was updated the day about my trip. 11. Drive informed that he was not informed about my solang valley and rohtang( this never happened as acc to driver rohtang was closed) so driver took me through atal tunnel and solang and asked me to pay 4,500 as it was not covered according to him if co.pany pays him he will refund that. 12 reach jibhi again I was promised stars and moon and was gives stone. Hotel again good but room provided wa basic not river facing funny part is this time room was booked for 2 adults and child not included Missed out Mt Kewal when I was in Manali threated tht he don't care if I'm satisfied or not but if I don't pay the remaining amount he will cancel my jibi which means on my wife bday iw 7d be left on road. I told I will for sure pay once I look the room provided. He didnt accept. He said if I'm not paying he will cancel jibhi or ask me to pay for manali. Very u professional 13 last but not the least while checking out jibhi hotel informed that co pant has not yet paid them and i shud pay thn for room and kid. Made multiple calls and got tht taken care of in 2hrs Sontravel triangle traingle team I'm very diaaapointed. Still in on vacation once I'm done and back to my place me and my wife are sharing Thai experience on social media. We work in a corporate and our view will have huge imapct Non

                Chaitanyakumar's 12 days trip to Himachal

                I opted EasyGo Vacation for HP trip of 12 Days, And I was right in choosing Aman joshi from easygo vacation. He has been very helpful right from the first day i interacted with him. He was willing to change the itinerary and make adjustments just the way I liked it to be. The selection of places and the hotels with good view under a budget is what Aman good at. He is also good at explaining his thoughts. Our trip included Cab and transfers along with Hotels. And Driver - Goutam Sarkar was really nice person. He used to suggest time to leave the hotel each day before went to hotel at night and be ready 10 mins before we come down. he used to call us 30 mins before to make sure we get ready too. Hotel staff in all the locations were more than willing to help and accommodate our request. A pleasant family experience.! The rating can nothing be short of Extremely likely, because of Aman and Goutam. They were really nice persons to have interacted with. But there is small scope of improvement which I have brought to notice of Aman and hope he improves upon them for future tourists!

                Mahendra's 6 days trip to Himachal

                I had booked Shimla - Manaali six days tour with North India Tours & Travels. From the starting there were trouble with agency. I was asked to contact Mr. Neeraj Negi for driver details. I had followed him four times over phone but he didn't provide the proper details. I got three drivers number and had to call all of them to know who will pick me up from Chandigarh. Once driver was fixed, he asked me to leave from Chandigarh early (though I didn't want it) in the morning because he was in Chandigarh that evening and he wanted to return early. when I called Neeraj Negi to know if Hotel room will be available if I reach early, he was blunt and said will you check out early if you are checking in early. Taxi and hotel coordination was his job but I was doing it and he was playing boss role. while travelling to Shimla, taxi driver (Prakash) informed me that he is not from North India tour travel. Taxi driver on day one left without informing. raised the issue on Travel triangle whatsapp group but no help was offer either by travel triangle or Neeraj Negi. During the travel, I had four different drivers (Prakash, Sanjay, Ajay, Raju) and on each day I had to coordinate with these drivers. No professionalism at all. Although, I was informed that I will have single driver through out the tour. while returning from Manaali around 1 PM during the day we were passing through planes (Sundar Nagar, Bilaspur etc) and temperature was 37 deg C and dust outside. requested driver to switch on the AC but he hadn't. this is despite the fact that we were descending from hills or travelling in plane areas. This driver (Ajay) had to pick client from Chandigarh therefore he had asked us to start early from Manaali, which I agreed to. I had to skip the breakfast because of him but when we requested him to switch on the AC, he straight forward denied it. No support from North India tour travel . Only good thing in this trip was hotel in Manaali (Himalayan heights), which is newly built and well maintained. view from this hotel is quite good and it has apple orchard within it's boundary.
