    • Trip to Rajasthan

      Amazing experience. Very good and helpful staff. Only concern was "Kanj Avatar Resort" in Pushkar was a bit far from city, so even though facility was good it wasn't very convenient. Would've preferred something closer to the city. Everything else was perfect, best service no complaints !!! Kudos !!!

    • Trip to Rajasthan

      Took a trip with traveltriangle (and DIU holidays) to Rajasthan. It was my first trip via traveltriangle based on quotes and feedback from friends. But it turn out to be not so good. Contact person from TT was not available at all, when i need to callback, it was automated system no real person. Only time i got response is the time when i paid money installment. Even automated system asked for number so that TT can callback, but not received any call. So anyone booking with TT should note that TT will NOT be there when you need. Good thing in trip was Contact person from DIU holidays, he picked phone when required and had been in kind of constant touch. You can count on them. Coming to trip itself: DRIVER was worst, his objective was just to pass the time so that he don't have to drive and find a free parking even if we have to walk long distances (parking, toll etc. was included in our price). He will say negatives things about spots that were mentioned in itinerary so that we dont visit that place and refuse slightest detour as it was not part of itinerary. first HOTEL was not so good, far far from city and not at all family environment (it was a OYO hotel, you know what goes with those). Second HOTEL was good. Best thing was Sultan resort and sand dunes. DIU had planned trip well and will definitely book with them in future.
