Puthlijaya's 4 days trip to GenevaThis is definitely a scenic and worthwhile vacation which was planned by shubham from Hubholiday, we had an amazing time. Some of the excursions, like the trip up Mt Titlis , can be pricey as are many other things in Switzerland, but worth the cost. The Swiss public transportation is about the best I've seen, so it's easy to get around and even tack on time before and after the tour without any stress. Highly recommend. Shubham has provided us the best competative price . I would highly recommend Shubham from HubHoliday for our future travel .

Annu's 15 days trip to GenevaWe undertook a 14 day trip covering Italy, Switzerland and France from 02 to 16 Oct 19.

Ragib's 11 days trip to GenevaThe trip was well planned by Globus Holidays. They understood what we wanted, which is the most important part of planning a trip. It was a customized trip covering 3 countries and the planning was effective considering the tight schedule. Swati from Globus Holidays was really helpful before and during the trip. Always available on whatsapp or call, even after her office hours. It is a 4/5 star trip. 1 star lost because some aspects of the trip could have been corrected if the vouchers were booked a little early. Overall a good experience and will definitely recommend Globus Holidays to anyone.
Rachna's 14 days trip to GenevaWe went for our honeymoon trip to Greece arranged by Centaur vacations - Kusum, Anil and Rishab. It was an awesome trip. The services of this travel agency are excellent, although responses needs to be more improvised and proactive, but overall experience was great!! Thank you Rishab for all the suprises and complimentary services which made our honeymoon trip memorable. Rishab and Team were available 24*7 for all the doubts. Even today after the trip is completed Rishab is still helping for all the queries/documents required for claim settlement. Looking forward to have many more trips organised by Centaur Vacations. Thank-you so much kusum and Rishab for all the planning and making trip memorable.
