Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingHotel in Gangtok is very good but Hotel in Darjeeling is good but not as per commitment. Overall experience with tourpedia is good
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeelingour holiday trip 5 nights 6 days was wonderful ie. wef. 21st October, 2019 to 26th October.The driver Pawan who piked up at Bagdogra to Gangtok and remained with us for three days was nice,courteous and expert driver.l The Hotel Parley Boutique at a high gradient was giving panoramic view of Gangtok .The Manger Ravi Thapa was very hospitable person who took care of all provisions/facilities as per terms and conditions of the tour.The road from Gangatok to Darjeeling passing through thick forest of Pines,Red wood Tress together with beautiful slopping Tea Gardens had left indelible marks. The Hotel Delight Norling Retreat had initially given a bad impression as the room provided was having a dead intercom Phone. The shampoo and lotion bottle provided was found opened.But When I brought it to the notice of Ayush the agent of Trip 2 Hills the matter was immediately resolved.I am thankful to Ayush because he was taking our personal care till we reached our home.We had Seldom met with such a nice guy like Ayush. Travel Triangle had done our to and fro booking from Dehradun to Bagdogra. The air fare charged was reasonable.The driver Neeyat a young guy at Darjeeling was also very punctual and courteous one. In all it was wonderful tour organised by Travel Triangle and many thanks to Trip 2 hills.

Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingI had been to North Sikkim (gangtok, lachen and lachung) for a family tour with Himavat destination via travel triangle. Mr. Ashish was the person who made my itinerary as per my request. Thanks to him for customising my itinerary. My tour was very nice and memorable. Thanks to Mr. Ujjwal and Mr. Rajat. Everything was taken care of. My driver Mr Sonam was very experienced and was very nice. Only observation was that we were not informed that lachen hotel (Lachen Deezong) booked was pure veg restaurant and also that Nathula pass cost should be fixed and not variable. I was told by Mr Ashish that the cost will not be more than Rs 4000/- for you. But in quote it was mentioned Rs 4000 - Rs 4500/- and finally I was charged Rs 4500/- when asked I was given lot of reasons which was not convincing for me. Himavat pls make note of all this for future.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingHad booked Only Travel Package (2 Innova's) for our Gangtok and Darjeeling trip through Ms Alka ( Wecare). She was always supportive and guided us through our entire tour. The Cab drivers in Darjeeling (Prashant and Nitesh) were extremely good but we were a bit unhappy with the behaviour of drivers in Gangtok. Overall a good experience.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingLindsay Himalyan Heights: poor maintenance of bath room fittings. No hot water on 2 occasions. For B/F they could not provide proper toast as they have no toaster given by management. Visit to Zero point with plenty of snow. Also visit to chardham complex was memorable.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingFirst day experience was bad. Govind is a nice guy but he didn't picked up the call very first day in morning.

Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingOur cab and driver was amazing. He was the most courteous driver and guide we could have had.
