      The travel agent was really kind and helpful. They need to be little aware of the time management. But the overall experience was good.

      Travel Agent: The agency was professional in their approach and all planning and execution were good. Would recommend. Hotels: The choice of hotels were not great. So i didn't use that service. I booked hotels on my own. Itinerary: The plans for some of the days just has a hotel drop off. There is no consideration for what we will be doing for rest of the day. This is a bad practice and needs to be improved. Bad Experience: The driver would only exactly follow the predetermined package. Even if you want minor detours he would charge extra. Change of vehicle every day and non-availability of vehicle at your disposal takes away the flexibility. It is almost like taking Uber for pre-planned destinations.
