Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingAll and all tour was good .but 1.parking was included in my trip but driver was not aware so paid parking at that moment and informed to travel agent . Now I am waiting for my refund but still did not get. 2. We were not able to see sunrise at tiger hill because travel agent is not aware when we should leave from hotel to see sunrise . 3.on daily bases I needed to call travel agent to take drive detail for next day which was really hectic for me.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingTrip To Gangtok was a really pleasant one and the experience with travel triangle was better than last year. Even tough response from the trip advisor Akshay Rana , was minimal and not there before the trip. The members from We Care holidays did try to help as much as possible. Mr. Ajay from WECare team was always available and responsive to our queries and was trying to help us through out the trip. Ms. Shuku did help us in getting a good Hotel booked , but failed to notify us regarding the weather condition and the destinations . It had been raining all while , which was not very usual at that time of year .But we were not notified or guided accordingly. Also Nathula Pass was not yet open due to the bad weather and we were not informed about the same as well. Overall we are satisfied with the services of WeCare Holidays .

Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingOverall, I liked the trip experience. However, I did not like the customer service from Travel Triangle. I was not provided the driver or car details even after repeatedly asking in the WhatsApp chat initiated by Travel Triangle. Finally, I had to follow-up with the agent so many times to get the details. Even after I landed in Bagdogra, the car was not waiting for me. After my first pickup, things were fine.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingNice trip. No problem with the drivers and coordinatation. But one thing, we had to always call our travel agent for drivers phone number. They will then send their phone number. That was disappointing
