      Complete value for money! I had done my bookings for my Russia trip with Tripo Holidays. There were multiple iterations that we discussed before finalising the itenary. The travel advisors at Tripo were patient enough to address and also rework the itenary. They were also always available during my trip and for any queries that I had, they responded immediately. Would surely look to book trips to more destinations through Tripo as well as through Travel Triangle registered travel advisors.
