    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      It was my first trip with TravelTriangle and everything was in absolute perfection as planned. The hotels, the journey and the guide+driver made our journey worthwhile. It was a surprise trip by me for my husband’s birthday and everything went extremely well.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      Hello we have visited Srilanka as on 6 th June 17, 2019 would like to mention that Narang (Travel Triangle Holiday Expert) was extremely helpful. We were five couple to visit Sri Lanka . Secondly, Madhusudan(Tropical Ceylon Experts) who was working with Tropical Ceylon was left job .when we reach at Colombo Air port owner Mr. Sujeet was to receive us, made sure our requirements are met. Thirdly, our chauffeur guide Mr.Dilip was not knowing Hindi, so we have faced lot of problem of under sting language, he was cooperative but left us on 4th day and back to his home, Tempo Driver does not know English so last 2 days was not received any information of sight sneering that day there was need of Mr. Narang but he was also not available. Any how we have enjoyed Trip. As per our quotation Tropical Ceylon has to give us Hindi specking Guide, but given English specking Guide, most of our friend doesn’t understand English, this was main problems. Food and hotels was very good

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      I would like to thank Ranuka from Amara lanka for his support during our trip to srilanka , there is an advice to them to provide the right guide or cab driver to take us to the right hotel as we had wasted most of our time in going to the wrong place then followed up with the booking agent & ended up in the middle of the night . As i said ranuka was helpful but am not sure whose fault it was when it came to cordination part.
