    Aniruddha's 9 days trip to South Africa

    We had an amazing trip to South Africa. It is a beautiful country to visit with very hospitable people around. Everything went well without any hiccups. The hotels, cab drivers and other details were well planned by Nikhil from Besten/MK Holidays, special thanks to him. Some elements which can be improved were the visits planned during our stay at Knysna as they were quite some distance away from our hotel. Will definitely recommend Travel Triangle to others for planning their trips.

    Its good ..but i did not had same experience as travel factory they used to provide us our day activity one day ahead.but hear besten tour everything is clumsy and messy every time we have to call our agent to get the details through out the tour.and some othe place we have to pay from our pocket even after paying for the pacakge. We had a very bad experience with besten tour.Half of things which promised not taked care by the vendor.We paid extra from our pocket for some of the tickets (activity) even after paying the complete amont..vendor promised he will pay us back..but we are still chasing behind him.This is the worst experience I ever had...I will never reccomend any one neither nor besten tour..learn something from travel factory

    Utkarsh's 7 days trip to South Africa

    Would recommend the location to everyone for a must-visit Bucket list item. Would NEVER recommend the travel agent to anyone regarding any trip. About the destination: South Africa is definitely one of the best places to visit in the months of January. The weather is pleasant throughout the day with light breezes greeting you wherever you go. We were really lucky with our safari in Kwantu as we were able to sight almost all of the variety of wildlife that they have in the reserve. The stay at Kwantu was also equally comfortable. Knysna and Oudtshoorn were another pair of scenic locations and the drive from Port Elizabeth to Kwantu to Knysna & Oudtshoorn was undoubtedly one of the best drives I have ever had. The visit to Cape Town was as exciting as we were expecting and the city welcomed us with a marvelous evening sky as we drove in. The local sightseeing service available in the city was a good enough option as it drove us through almost all the places of interest within and around the city. The Table Top Mountain did live to it's grandeur and the view from up top was really breathtaking. The entire Cape peninsula as well as the town were so tiny yet so vast. The Cape Peninsula tour on the next day was equally interesting, covering the entirety of the Cape of Good Hope, the Botanical garden, Hout Bay Harbour and the most awaited Jackass Penguin colony in Boulders beach. About the travel agent: The approach of MKHolidays before and after the first payment for the trip was in dire contrast. While they were following up with us multiple times throughout the day with even minor changes in the itinerary before we made the first payment, after that we had to call them up over 4-5 times for every update or voucher request. We did no get the hotel vouchers till the very last week of our travel. The flight ticket from Johannesberg to Port Elizabeth were given to us at midnight just before the day of our flight. Without that, we had been stranded in JoBerg with no onward flight tickets. The downpayment for the car rental which was included in the travel package had not been made and I had to pay for the same from my pocket. Upon arrival in Cape Town, when we went to Holiday Inn (a 4-star property), we were told that there was no booking in our name and the hotel voucher given to us for that place was invalid. All calls to MKHolidays went unanswered & the Travel Triangle representative merely shrugged off saying that he would not be able to help as the bookings were under the agent's purview. I had to pay for the first night from my own pocket. Upon the next day, I was told that the hotel booked for me was the Holiday Inn Express (a 3-star property), even though the package specifically included the other property. We reluctantly moved to Holiday Inn Express, only to realize that our booking there was cancelled due to a no-show the previous night. We had to wait for a longer time for the bookings to get re-listed. The vouchers for each day's activity were given to us only on the previous midnight. This caused an aura of uncertainty throughout our trip as we never knew what time we had to wake up the next day for the pickup. Had South Africa not been that marvelous a country, the callous approach of the travel agent during the trip would definitely have ruined the experience for us.

    Vidhan Khanna

    Mumbai

    Vidhan's 11 days trip to South Africa

    It was a troubled trip with respect to service of the agent since day 1. Attention to detail to itenary was very poor. First they were denying many inclusion but on closer scrutiny of the itenary they finally relented. Second there was lots of errors regarding to hotel and dates. I had to check each and every voucher they provided and it used to be wrong on couple of occasions. Had to get them rectified. Also had to chase them for vouchers till the last minute inspite of repeated reminders. They never even told about baggage allowance of internal flights and tried to play fraud on each point. It was my honeymoon and not once in South Africa and Seychelles was there any honeymoon decoration and goodies. Cab from Cape town to Kynsna was cancelled last minute and they arranged 1 at the nth hour delaying my program by 2 hrs. Over all the agency lacks a clear intent and is very deceptive
