Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingThank you so much for making my trip so awesome. For the first time I have opted online services and it was beyond expectation. Special thanks to travel agent Dipak and my cab driver Sunil cherri. You all guys were awesome.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingThis trip was awesome...right from the beginning trips to nature was very helpful .. Providing quotes covering all our destinations....at a reasonable price . They have personally suggested few locations which were definitely worth visit They have changed hotels on our request and have added meal plans to our package. Drivers were good at their job We have changed few local sightseeing spots on the way..and the agent co ordinated the same with the drives. Had few minor problems during our stay at lachen and lachung ..but both of these are small villages so people there aren't professional enough...but still nothing to make a big issue of. Trips to nature is recommendable! Will definitely think about this agent whenever I plan my next trip to this part of country!!. Memorable trip indeed!

Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingThe room in darjeeling, i guess the name is hotel white yak was horrible. no change of room provided. tsongmo lake was closed in sikkim and no better alternatives arranged. As explained, the major cost of the trip was the drive to Tsongmo Lake, even though it was cancelled no discounts were provided. I requested for discounts, but with no respite. Apart from these two problems, the trip was good and the drivers were really friendly.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingSanjeev did a great job is assigning very good driver and cars for complete trip. I would also like to thank Suraj for informing about the location which will be closed so that we do not end up spending for those locations while making the trip plan. I will recommend Travel triangle also for providing a platform to give competitive rates from local vendor's. Hotels were booked separately so feedback only for car packages and drivers. Clear mountain View from the top of Tsongo lake rope way point, Kanchanjunga clear view from Tiger hill and playing in snow in Lachung.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingVineet Holidays , Subratha has made our complete Sikkim trip plan turn into a reality from our plan. We had a completely customized plan from what they have actually provided. But Subratha has made all the arrangements as per our requirements and plan and even supported us with back up plan even when things did not go as planned due to weather conditions. Overall, its a very nice experience with Vineet Holidays for our complete trip to go very well and leave us with wonderful memories.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingOverall trip was good. Hotel stay and travel arrangements, drivers were good. But they need to improve coordination with the client. They need to inform client by themselves one day prior about the next day itinerary or any changes in itenerary and not when the client asks them. The certain rules like while going to lachung from gangtok, before 3.30pm check post needs to be crossed should be informed one day earlier and not on the day when client is travelling to lachung so that the client shouldn't be missing the tour to lachung. We were given driver contact number without him knowing that he will be dropping us to airport.Luckily we called him prior. He got to know from us and not from the agent that he is dropping us to airport. Though they helped our friends to make arrangements for sightseeing and hotel stay for two more days on the last moment. It really helped.
