    Dr Amber's 9 days trip to South Africa

    The trip to south africa was planned and customized very well according to my needs by mr inderjot, our travel agent from flyocity. He was in contact the whole time, was up to date on our check ins in hotels and all transfers. Our all events went as planned hassle free. The only one little thing that was okay and not the best were the hotels which were around 10kms minimum far away from the main city. That caused a little bit of problems. But rest all was bang on and everything was well executed by our travel agent. Sterkfointan caves,Paraglyding, scenic beauty of SA on garden route, Suspension Bridge, Table Mountain

    Brilliant place to visit. Good services provided by travel agent - but I had to chase the agents many times to confirm for certain vouchers and reservations.

    Vishal's 7 days trip to South Africa

    Hotels were good, but the taxi driver offered were really terrible. They were in such a hurry as if they had to catch some return flights to their home. The best part being that they will not drive at night, whatsoever the case may be. Instead they will pick u up in 6:00 in the morning and then make you wait for hours on the airport or wherever the destination is. Surprisingly our agent also didn't bother once we are on the trip. They would just ask you to adhere to the timelines as if it was a group package. It's a better option to book in group rather than booking private tour then. Further , I would give a 3 star just for the ease of getting Visa and thereafter providing vouchers and other services like airport pick up and drop on time. Rest the guidance part during the trip was completely missing. And no doubt, SA is a very good country with very good people., excellent landscape, much to see and witness. The experience in the country was too great.

    Shilpa's 6 days trip to South Africa

    The overall trip to south africa was very good. The Besten tours in Africa was very well managed. The services were on time and the guides/drivers were extremely polite and accommodative. The kruger safari and capetown tours are worth every penny. the sefapane lodge is a very good option for stay. Mr. Manoj from Besten Tours India had been very sensitive to our requirements and whims. There was a delay in sending our passports for visa processing, but Mr. Manoj had been very helpful in getting it sorted within time. Some of the not so good experiences were: There was a mix up in flight booking where the tickets were given to us on the dates the flight was not operational. We came to know about this in the airport which was at midnight. However, we stayed overnight at the airport to catch the same flight next day. The stay in Johannesburg was not so great. The hotel Park Inn Sandton's service was very bad. They did not have our rooms ready on the last day of our trip till atleast 2.30 in the afternoon. We had to leave our luggage in the reception and go to the already booked tour. We got our rooms at 7 in the evening. These were some of the things which were not so good memories. So the tours can work on these issues, so that tourists like us donot have to face such problems.

    Olivia's 11 days trip to South Africa

    I was really confused while choosing a travel agent for my trip to South Africa, that’s when I turned to Travel Triangle and got connected to MK holidays, the trip was exactly customised as I wanted. Mr. Manoj was extremely helpful, we were 6 people. He made sure we have a great trip. The hotels were given exactly the ones I wanted, plus he suggested few and we went with those. The hotels and places were amazing. He gave me an itenary very unique and different than what other travel agencies were giving me. Places like Kynsns, Hermanus were amazing and usually other travel agents won’t take you there. He has made the plan as per our requirements. The drivers provided there were very professional and great. Masaimara experience was superb, he made sure we have a great time and trust me, it was a lifetime experience. The chauffeur in Masaimara was great, he did amazing game drives....the animals were right near us. It was amazing. We missed whale watching in Hermanus due to high tides and thus, Mr.Manoj arrangement for a day trip to Hermanus without any extra cost on another day and we were really impressed. Keep up the good work. If you are planning for a trip abroad, my only suggestion is Mk holidays. I would choose Mk holidays for all my international trips henceforth.

    Ramesh's 14 days 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
