Aarushi's 7 days trip to SpitiIt was a fanstastic experience. At first I was quite skeptical about this group tour because it was a new experience for me. I have never travelled in a grouo with strangers that too in a land with zero network connectivity. But fortunately had the most amazing people join us and also our tour guide was quite helpful. Our tour guide made sure we explored each and every spot mentioned in itinerary and at the same time not rushing. He gave us enough time to explore each place and capture enough memories to last for lifetime. All in all Immventures and team and Travel Triangle restored my faith in group travelling and I am grateful to them for giving us such a nice experience. Kudos Team Immventures!

Jayanth's 5 days trip to SpitiNikita was our coordinator, she has been in constant touch with us right from the planning of the trip to completion of the trip. We had initially planned to go to Kaza but due to weather we couldn't continue with the itinerary, Nikita made another itineary in manali on the last moment and it turned out to be good. This guys give the best service and any one who is looking to travel around spiti, manali should consider them to plan their trip

Hotels & Food Our trip is 8 days long and we almost stayed in 7 different hotels 1. Shimla --> Rajat Hotel (Food is decent but Not the hotel ) shimla is a good place and they can get better hotel 2. Sangla --> IBex Camp (Excellent view and decent food with the surrounding nothing to complain about) 3. Kalpa --> Tab Exotic, ( Decent hotel with Decent Food) 4. Tabo --> Sidharth (Nice hotel with Nice food ) 5. Kaza --> Spiti Valley -> (decent hotel with decent food) then can do little better here as its also big tourist place 6. Chandratal --> didnt stay in Tenzin camp due to heavy snow 7. Manali --> Mountain View --> Nice Hotel with Nice food 8. Chandigarh --> Hotel Oscar Regency --> (Worst hotel and worst food) we stayed for night room is full of alcohol and cigarette smell Overall : Its great trip, and on the last day we got the snow fall my kids enjoyed it a lot and its beautiful journey. Precautions: Food is only Parotha, Rice and Bread available mostly, as it takes a lot of journey if you are going towards spiti better keep some snacks of your own and some pickles in case you miss your home food
Manjushaw's 9 days trip to SpitiOverall a very good and seamless experience. Initial assistance before the trip by Ambika was very helpful and she clarified all the doubts all the time. Covered a lot of places in the short time span of the trip. Anil managed the trip well, also took us to Apple orchid on request while it was not part of the itinerary. He took a lot of photos of the group and always tried to encourage everyone for the group activities. Areas which can be improved upon is the lunch timing, and may be updating the itinerary to visit chandrataal during day time. We reached chandrataal late in the evening, and it was dark out there, so we asked Anil if he could take us again in the morning and he did that for us. It snowed that night, and in the morning it was all white. The traveller couldn't start due to freezing cold weather, so we trekked to the lake and the trek was the beautiful and so was the lake.
Ankit's 7 days trip to Spiti1Our Chandratal Camp was canceled due to snow fall, so Classic Expeditions booked a good hotel for us in Manali including breakfast and Dinner without any charges. Camps were very good. In camps they provided warm water for drink and bath. Food quality was good in Camps. Please improve food quality at hotels
Mithila's 5 days trip to SpitiIt was an amazing experience. Eveything was completely sorted and the trip was scheduled very wisely. The vehicle was great and the driver was helpful and cooperative. No issues faced till the end of the trip. The trip was perfect. Except one little issue. The pick up point of the bus from Delhi was not confirmed earlier. The pick up point changed thrice and it was a lot of inconvience. Apart from that, everything perfecto!
Virender's 7 days trip to SpitiIt was my 1st solo travel with other unknown travelers. Some improvement are possible on home stay as well as in food for have option for local & traditional food especially at Home stay. Agent involvement & efforts were nice in complete travel. Tracking towards Chandratal Lake after snowfall was awesome. Overall it was very nice experience for such travel.
Valaru's 6 days trip to SpitiThe overall experience of the trip was awesome,the travel Agent Ambika effectively answered all our queries and was very helpful .the cab was good,driver was very kind and nice and only thing to comment about is the driver from Chandigarh to Delhi on the last day was demanding for money to visit the India gate which was already discussed and included in the itenary and also delayed for extra penny to drop us to airport since the terminal was changed last moment due to flight cancellation. Every moment was great, we enjoyed the SPITI valley And Rohtang pass.
