    • Trip to Goa

      Hotel was a bit small but good.. There were only two ppl taking care of everything.. So the service was slow.. Food was good but limited menu.. Rooms were well maintained.. The initial room shown to us was pretty small but on our request they gave us a bigger room.. View was very good.. The cab drivers were ok.. But there was nobody at the airport with a placard of my name.. As mentioned in the itinerary.. We had to call the main travel person and wait for about 30 mins before the cab came.. The North Goa and South Goa tours were good but the drivers took us to some exorbitantly priced restaurants.. Other than these.. Our trip was good and enjoyable.. Goa beaches are spectacular.. We mainly had at blast at Baga beach and Vagator beach.. We also hired a scooty..and roamed around on our own.. This was the best part...

    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      Rooms were not clean. Coorg hotel was no where near the market. Cockroaches in the room. We have to wait for more than 3 hours to check in Mysore hotel. Mysore hotel's manager was too arrogant. Service was very slow. We have been told there will no Oyo rooms from the package. But have got Oyo rooms in coorg and mysore. Need to travel for more 4-5 kms to reach to coorg hotel's breakfast restaurant. There was only 1 option given for breakfast in Coorg. I have been told I will get so many options in the breakfast. Nothing I got. Mysore hotel didn't give us breakfast. I ate it outside and Lee vacations paid me for that. Ooty hotel was good but the service was damn slow. We literally have to wait for half an hour to get water bottle. Breakfast was very limited. Only idli and bread. Cab driver was good. He knows each and every thing about the place.

    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      Travel Agent just looked at the budget i have provided, but he didn't cared whether the basic amenities are available or not at the hotels provided. When enquired the same with them, then the response really surprised me. He was stating how can I expect the basic amenities when my budget is just 30K for 4 days :( and intern told me that it was very challenging for him to accomodate. Overall trip went fine, but we faced issues at the hotel at Ooty.

    • Trip to South Africa

      Hi sirs Thanks for arranging our South Africa tour consisting of 12N / 13 Days. Would like to give some fair feedback for your reference and records and corrective actions wherever necessary. The feedback is graded on a scale ranging from 9 to 1, where 9 is the best and 1 you can understand. I will be rating the following for your benefit of better understanding – Hotels for Stay Breakfast in the same hotels Transportation / Logistics Drivers Local numbers for emergency calls for any requirement Starting with Hotel for Stay – Peermont Suites – Comfortable stay but so great, hence would like to give rating of 6 Breakfast in the above hotel was good but not many choices, hence would like to rate it as 7 Kruger Park Lodge – Comfortable stay, we liked it. Hence would like to give rating of 8 Breakfast in the above was just ok and nothing great, hence rating is 5 Sun Soho – very compact room, child bed is a sofa converted into bed, my son is almost 6 ft. hence rating is 6 Breakfast in the above hotel is good, manageable. Would like to rate it as 7 Blackwaters River Lodge – Pls do not recommend this place, its very pathetic. Only plus point is it is close to Knysna. Otherwise there is no reason why this hotel was given to us. We had to travel to go places. Would like to give ratings 4 Breakfast in the above hotel is also very pathetic. We were the only guests in this hotel and the hardly any choices in food. Hence we would like to rate it as below 3 Holiday Inn – Name is big, but the room is very small to accommodate 3 people in the room. It was just ordinary room with a double bed ( just not enough for two people to sleep ) and a single bed. Hence, would like to rate this stay of 5 Breakfast in the above hotel was just fine. Its ok. Hence rating may be like 6. Transportation / Logistics was good all thru. Good vehicles given to us. Would like to rate it as 9 Drivers – Both Haroon Ismail upto drop to Johannesburg after 6 days and thereafter Sipho from pick from George airport till drop us back to Cape Town international airport were very good. They were humble, obedient and very supportive. We like both and would like to rate them as 9. Local contacts for emergency was just fine. However, we enjoyed the full tour without any problems and your arrangements were fine. The Shark Cage dive was cancelled by the tour agent there due to sea roughness as told us. They said they would refund money to you. Pls let me know how you want to refund us the same. Many Thanks once again for arranging the tour for us. Regards / Ramesh

    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      Overall stay was great. Enjoyed a lot. All three hotels were good. I would like to suggest one thing, as tourist doesn't know much about the place , you should guide then accordingly. As which places to visit, how many days required per city. Because there were so much travelling that almost one whole day of my respective city tour went in travelling. So tourist can cover less but atleast can enjoy current place. Else it was a memorable trip. Thank you. Journey was beautiful than the destination. I really enjoyed bful road trip to Ooty .

      The overall arrangement by Lee Vacations was exceptional excepting the Hotel at Ooty. Initially Bhagravi effort to convince me to book a trip with Lee was unforgeatable. She left no stone unturned to ensure the booking. Than the driver Jitenderji tried his best to ensure the trip ends smoothly & becomes a memorable one for us. Ramya & Murrugun also tried their best ensure we get the best hospitality as pissible. I thank the whe Lee team for their sincere and honest effort to keep us happy, God bless them. The Rameswaram trip particularly to Dhanuskodi & Kalam Memorial was amazing

    FAQ's of South Africa

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

     

    To make the most of your excursion to South Africa, try to avail an accommodation somewhere in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban, and Pretoria, where you cannot only explore the major attractions, but can savor a lot of other experiences as well. 

    If you are going on a safari in South Africa, then it is recommended to wear neutral colors, a light jacket, and a wide-brimmed hat. Besides that, carry light clothes, sweatpants, and sweatshirts. 

     

     

    Morocco, which is located in the northern parts of Africa is the only country that is considered as the safest country in the continent. Though, it is surrounded by some countries that are famed for their rebellions, Morocco continues to be known for its safe and peaceful environs. 

     

    Apart from South Africa, other African countries like: Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Mozambique, Uganda, and other countries are also good options to enjoy a wildlife safari in South Africa.

    If applied properly with all the correct documents, South African visa can take anytime between 5 working days to a couple of weeks, depending on the traffic.

    June to October is the best time for all the safari programmes, including the Masai Mara migration and game viewing in Tanzania.
