Utkarsh's 4 days trip to Geneva

It was good Europe trip. The most important thing is how trip advisor solves your query and make a reasonable price trip. I was all time good support from Memorable Vacation consultant. One of the hotel location was good in Interlaken while another in Zurich was bit far from city. Overall it was good trip and special thanks to Varsha Rahuja (My trip advisor) for good Itinerary and positive response and support. I would definitely recommend for others.

Anand's 8 days trip to Geneva

The service was fine ... Though we did not have a good experience at the hotel in Paris.... Considering it was a honeymoon trip,you cannot have separate beds and such a small room that cannot even accommodate our bags... We were not even aware about the station in Switzerland..it was wen we googled and asked the agent, we came to know about it... These things could have been kept in mind..other than that it was good.

Natasha's 8 days trip to Geneva

In Rome, timings to Colosseum should have been earlier or on the previous day as it closed at 3:30 pm sharp. In Switzerland, the half day city tour of Zurich and Lucerne cruise was a repetition as same was covered on the previous day except for the cruise. All in all the organizing of the tour was good and Arindham did a good job.

I booked my honeymoon package with these guys..and it turned out to be excellent. I gave it to them and then It was nothing to worry about. They handled everything. Every information was available to me before anyone else and helped me prepare beforehand..They planned everything so well out ..from hotels to sightseeing to flights...awesome...it became a memorable experience for us. Their professionalism was commendable as they were available 24-7 before, before and during the trip.

Vagarwala's 7 days trip to Geneva

We booked our trip through Centaur vacations. I personally feel Kusum is the best you've got. She planned our entire trip along with Rishab. Apart from a few lows, the entire trip was amazing. We have absolutely no complaints in Switzerland. Yes, our hassals began in Paris. The city tour of Paris was not well planned (I've spoken to kusum about this) and the hotel booked in paris wasn't upto the mark as well. But again, we all are really happy that we chose centaur vacations and will look for to do the same in future. Mount Titlis day. The entire day we spent in titlis. It was just wonderful.
