    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      It was fantastic trip. Hotels provided were of best service but I expected more luxurious rooms. All the drivers are very friendly and didn’t face any problem in the tour. Enjoyed a lot in the trip. Only concern is they didn’t cover all the places which are mentioned in iternary. They have to plan alternatives if the weather is not supporting. Apart from this everything went well. Thanks to tour advisor & travel triangle do the memorable trip

      Feedback : overall rating : only 3 star Day 1: pickup done at 12.15pm.the vehicle condition is very bad. Driver is not at all guiding us for sightseeing and for food. He took us to a restaurant where the quality of food is a disaster. Valley vista reaort was provided for us. Where too much smoking smell in the floor where we were provided rooms. Day 2: pick up time was not intimated earlier. Suddenly, The driver came at 7.30 am and stated that he would not pick us if we don't start immediately. Which is very disappointed for us to get ready in the last minute. Later, everything went on good. No nathula pass permit. Vehicle condition is not good. Black smoke came from the silencer, due to which everyone fallen sick. Visited Tsomgo lake and baba mandir. Restaurant in the hotel also not provided sufficient quantity of food/ juice/sweet for 8 mem. They have provided the same quantity of food for 4mem and also 8mem. When we asked for extra,there was no arrangement and inturn told that the juice/sweet/ is over, also shown some displeasure. Day 3: Way to Lachen...vehicle provided without luggage carrier. Lack of communication between transport team and sales person. Vehicle condition is good. Driver passang has good patience and shown sightseeing places.felt comfortable with him. Last minute changes in hotel rooms in hotel blue pine lachen, were done by subham. 4 mem has to share a suit. Even though,its costly room than deluxe room, it was not convenient to 2 couples. However, the cook/receptionist john approached nicely and arranged nice food for the next day too in-time... Breakfast -only bread n jam is provided. Day4: way to lachung... Not visited gurudongmar lake as already v were tired. Started at 1pm.. the hotel receptionist is ok. And even though i have booked for breakfast,lunch,dinner in lachung, the receptionist has told that only dinner and breakfast will be given to us. He told that he confirmed from the travel agency that there would not be lunch for us. Day 5: way to gangtok. Started early as anyway no lunch was provided by the hotel, only breakfast was had by us. Candle light dinner should be provided to us on this day. The hotel people have felt that its an extra work for them. After long discussion,they hav shifted it to the lobbey. However, only 2 candles were put on the table where all the 8 members had to sit together. Nothing extra.not even a piece of sweet. Felt so bad/disgusting. I felt that i have paid 3000 extra for just 2 candles. Not even single table per couple. Day 6: way to bagdogra. Vehicle is in good condition. Driver has dropped us at airport in time. However, he expected some money from us. All the hotels provided only bread n jam in the breakfast. Only valley vista resort, gangtok has provided poori during first 2 days. Overall im not happy with the travel agency. Everytime i have to call either subham/rakesh for the next plan. no proper coordination and plan. I hav to wait till 11pm to know about the next day trip. I am not satisfied with what they gave. They have not provided what they promised. I felt bad among my friends. Visited Tsomgo lake. It was good. I like the View at tsomgo lake and Lachen.

      It was a great trip. We'll remember this forever. However 2 of the 4 hotels we stayed at were missing minimum basic amenities like availability of hot water, dustbins, chairs, tables, tissues and more.

      All in all it was a best honeymoon trip . . At some place one of my cab driver took as waiting charge as Rs500 and at other place wen we went through there were elections , the cab dint arrive at right time ,they asked me to hire a private cab and go to hotel which vosted me Rs300 . Finally we missed that days iternary visits, wen we had left with 4hrs on the last day , wen we asked to cover the left over places , they charged us Rs1000 . Finally additionally I had to pay Rs1800 which was not at all mentioned . Cab drivers really damage the authenticity of the Services provided by the reat of the travel agencies .

      Excellent! It was a very good experience with Tharingsa Holidays with whom we got connected through Travel Triangle. With a group of 6 and the tour being planned only for 2 days and 2 nights, we had no clue regarding the connectivity and possible no. of explorations within the given time frame as we were first time travelers to Sikkim. Credit goes to Tharingsa Team especially Tour Co-coordinator Ms. Sushmita, who patiently listened, understood and accordingly planned the itinerary to our expectations. Receiving from Bagdogra airport, river rafting in Kalimpong, sightseeing in Tsango Lake, Baba Mandir, Nathula on the next day till dropping back on Airport was so well co-ordinated and executed that we didn't give a second thought for a single moment. Honestly this was one of the reason that our group could enjoy to the maximum in the short duration. Would like to suggest to the first time travelers or even to frequent travel freaks, if you want to enjoy to the fullest and keep aside headaches for travelling arrangements. Go for Tharingsha Holidays! Thank you Travel Triangle! Keep up the good work ! :-)

      In Gangtok Hotel Powring Guest House is very nice, rooms and bathrooms are very neat and clean, food is also good except complimentary breakfast. Staff of the Hotel are really nice. At Lachung, Katau Road House is outstanding. View from room is awesome, speechless. Staff of Katau Road House is better than Gangtok Hotel. Food taste, quantity and quality is very good. All the staff including manager is so polite. Car provided us its also good, Manasarovar kept their promised by providing Xylo and Innova as per our desire. Drivers are also very polite and their behaviour is also good. At the end of the tour we had drop at Bagdogra Airport, our flight timing was 5pm, we planned to start from Gangtok at 10:30am for airport but they forced us to leave at 8:35am. While we requested repeatedly that we have 5years old kid, they were giving excuse if election. Even driver threatened us to cancel the car if we won't get ready by 8:30am. There were no problem in Sikkim during election, tourists were went for sight seeing and all. Its a peaceful state. We reached at Airport at 1:20pm. After reaching at airport we get to know that car driver had pick up from Airport at 1:30pm to 2pm.

      Overall it was fine.. this could have been an awesome trip, had i not wasted my time in visiting yumthang valley in lachung which is closed to visit for more than 2 months still the tour operator put that in my itenary. I would have scheduled some other location if would have been aware of this earlier. Baba Mandir and changu lake was the best thing to be visited.
