Pralay's 7 days trip to Mount AbuThe best & memorable trip......The Cab driver they give is absolutely awesome....Full arrangements and planning is great....Trip is really a value for money...and they give the best hotel properties......Love the trip and Rajasthan.
Jitendra's 4 days trip to Mount AbuThe trip was really well organised and at an affordable price. The driver, Mr Pradeep was so humble, honest, very punctual and honest person. He was more than just a driver. He was a friend and our guide. I'm so thankful to tourpedia for this wonderful friend during our journey. The trip organiser constantly contacted me throughout the trip to make sure everything was going okay. The Alleviate hotel in Agra and Hamston park hotel in Jaipur were really nice for a 3 star hotel. The hotel in Delhi, Rupam hotel was little below our expectation. The trip was really memorable and I hope to travel more via tourpedia in the future. India is an incredible place and we had an amazing time.
Sanjay's 3 days trip to Mount AbuI recommended 3 star hotel...but I doubt...it didn't look like! Cab drivers n all travel was good!
Anita's 6 days trip to Mount AbuThe coordination by Aapka tripwala has been exemplary. They were always available whenever intervention was needed.They have a personalised approach which is commendable. Coming to hotels, we stayed at Souvenir Peppermint at Jaipur and they offered a very comfortable and hassle free stay with all needed amenities. Sri Ram Excellency was not to our satisfaction and they do not even provide basic requirements like a hair dryer and the place permanently smells of stale cigarette smoke. The breakfast though, was good. Heritage Juma camp was good and they took care of our requirements. The cab driver was good and he knew the terrain. The trip was generally good, but for a couple of hiccups, but that is not an issue, as the agent (Mr.Chirag Jain) of Aapka tripwala was quite proactive.
Sathyanarayanan's 5 days trip to Mount AbuNot worthy for money spent. Mostly we are in car travel. Poor time management, planning . Tiger reserve Safari
Shrilatha's 6 days trip to Mount AbuI would like to start on a positive note , we did enjoy the trip and the best part of the trip was the desert camp at jaisalmer. I would agree that all the hotel rooms were neat and comfortable with our stay. On the other hand, we wasted time at Jaipur and the sightseeing at Jaipur recommended was worthless as all the 3 places were just ok roadside and could be covered easily in roughly one hour . The tripadvisor did not recommend that we visit amer fort which was worth place to visit at Jaipur . Moreover the cab drivers had some tieups with local shopkeepers at Jaipur and misguided is to shop first which took most of our time and they were really reluctant to get us to do sight seeing . In fact they took commission even at the restaurants. We could cover udaipur in half a days time and frankly there was nothing much to do there and it was just a city with a lake and not recommended at all not worth the 12 hours of travel from jaisalmer. The desert camp at jaisalmer was the best highlight of the trip and our families had a good time and taste of Rajasthan
Bhaktaranjan's 10 days trip to Mount AbuThanks to Travel Triangle and his tour agents Ganesham tour and travels india ltd.for excellent trips arrangements by the team.I Will definitely recommend your travel agent to all my friends.Food quality to be improved in hotel Tokeyoo at jaisalmer.
Grkadekar's 6 days trip to Mount AbuThe overall service was good. And all the arrangements made was good .hotels was very good.one comments about the hotels was the Vinayak desert camp though it was good , we were given tent with out geyser. We were not knowing about this. Even if we have to pay for tgat , the availability of the same should have been told to us. Once again over all experience was very good . I definitely recommend both travel triangle and asiago travels....govind
