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.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingTravel leisure arranged our trip with utmost efficiency. The drive to Gangtok was comfortable and driver was very careful and good with driving on the hills and stopped whenever we asked him to at restaurants. The Hotel the agency had put us in had very good rooms and service, even the breakfast was nice. Our stay in Lachung was also very comfortable and even though the temperature had dropped below 0°, we were warm and comfortable. The travel agent Nanda was very sweet, she called us whenever possible to ask about our whereabouts, whether we were comfortable or not and even got us a discount when we paid extra because our designated station was closed due to snow and went to another place, katau. The experience was breathtaking and Travel leisure agency made it simple and hassle-free.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingSikkim - Gangtok - Lachen - Lachung- Darjeeling Sikkim..... great place to visit in summer vacation. This was our first experience with travel triangle . Being first it was not bad :) We booked through Udaan, the staff members are co-operative. Mr. Aditya , Arnav and Amruta supported good during the trip. Our experience - Got good support from Udaan staff during journey. Initially there were too much miscommunication regarding vehicle n room , but all our concerns got noticed and resolved. I would like to mention office staff is good and trained but local staff need improvement. I would like to mention for Mrs Khooshboo from Power Guest house in Gangtok. The lady is so helpful and kind. The service at hotel and food was up to the mark. We did not had good time with driver Bijoy, he was not helping and just spoiled our 3 days journey. Driver Ajay was awesome, was very helpful n with a great support for tourist. Its good to go with Uddan but make sure to inquire and confirm for all your concerns. Important - Do carry all your medicine. Some areas are very remote to get anything. The people having any kind of respiration problem, due carry oxygen cylinder. I would say compulsory carry oxygen cylinder, its ok if you do not use it but u never know if you need it. At last a big thanks to military camp , the medical staff at Gurudongmar . These people are real heroes of India. We got a great support and help for medical emergency from them. Don't wait .......Plan your summer vacation to Sikkim......
