    • Trip to Gangtok - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      Wisely and in excellent way our tour was managed by the Cloud Tours. We all have fully enjoyed the trip to Sikkim and Darjeeling. Special thanks to Mr. Santosh and soft spoken girl (whose name I don't know) both were always available and eager to satisfy our query. The tour really enreached me with the landscape and culture of Sikkim and Darjeeling. Thank you Travel Triangle and Cloud tours. The people of Sikkim and Darjeeling were soft spoken and well mannered. They perform their duty in the most dedicated way.

    • Trip to Gangtok - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      We picked Tourepedia based on the very good reviews. While the agent assigned to us Mehul did a great job being available for us to resolve issues, there was a lack of planning at every stage of the trip. We had to keep calling the agent at multiple points to ask about our next step of the joirney. They wouldn't inform the cab driver details, change the cab on every day, don't inform the driver about the itinerary. So the driver was clueless about the plan and was asking us where we want to go. At the last hotel, the payment wasn't made to the hotel for our stay fully. The hotel guy was saying there is pending payment. Every step of the way we had to keep calling the agent to intervene. All in all, not a smooth experience. The hotels chosen were good. But the cab drivers were just taking us from place a to b without explaining anything about the places they are taking us. It felt not like a guided tour but a prebooking of hotel and cab, which we too could have done ourselves.

    • Trip to Gangtok - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      The trip to North East was excellent the hotels provided in Darjeeling and Pelling were excellent, however the hotel at Gangtok was bit away from MG Marg (Main market of Gangtok). All hotels were neat and clean . the services provided by White strok were excellent and they were always in touch with me Special thanks to Ms khushboo Soni for making my trip memorable though we were not in best state of mind as burglary has happened in our house before start of trip, i.e. 04.10.2019. This trip turned out to be great stress buster and we were able to forget all the trauma and started enjoying the life again. Good Job done by White Strok holiday in providing excellent services and designing iternary and selection of hotels in Darjelling and Pelling.

      My trip toGangtok, Pelling and Lachung was organized by Tourpedia and Travel Triangle perfectly. Hotels, Cabs and Sight Seeing was taken care by Tourpedia and coordinated every day to make sure we are not facing any challenges or problems. I will sure recommend the Tourpedia service for Family and Couples to visit Sikkim, especially North Sikkim and West Sikkim

      The tour was really good. Both Deeki and Steve tried their best to make the tour special. The special gift and other help made the tour really an exciting one. The thing to be mentioned specially is their way of talking of Deeki and Steve was really nice which gave a sense of Family. Hotels were pretty good and as per expectation.
