Trip to UdaipurRajasthan,This was a tour of Family and Friends with 17 people( 11 adults and 6 kids) for 10 Days and 9 Nights. We were little apprehensive of the Places, Travel and Accommodation due to group size. we could not judge what would be the best deal and who could provide the best service, but to our surprise, One stop Solution for all our requirements happen to be "SURAJ of UNIQUE TRIP MAKER". He took care of all our Trip requirements and could add Rooms everywhere with my last minute addition of the people. He has given us Good Bus, though not a great Driver. Suraj was very supportive throughout the trip and was very helpful with daily check-update of our trip status. He never shied away making the necessary changes, if required. Our Accomdations were at 1)Jaipur - Rajputana Haveli; 2) Bikaner- Jaswanth Bhavan; 3) Jaisalmer- Tokyo Palace; 4)Samdunes- Rojani Resort; 5)Jodhpur- Kuchaman Haveli; 6)Udaipur- Mukund Vilas; 7) Pushkar - Country Side Resort. I would rate all of them VERYGOOD with "JASWANTH BHAVAN @ Bikaner and ROJANI@Samdunes- OUTSTANDING" while "Kuchaman Haveli - BAD. It was my mistake of Choosing Kuchaman based on pics , though suraj insisted me to opt other one, wish we could have followed his instructions. This was a very organized trip and We, as a large group highly recommend "Unique Trip Maker" to plan vacation and we Rate 5 STARS for the service Suraj has provided. My first choice for our future Trips would be UTM- Suraj. Thanks TRAVEL TRIANGLE and UNIQUE TRIP MAKER for your OUTSTANDING service.
