    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      Great service offered. Very prompt in queries on and before trip. We were 2 girls going hence were worried about safety. But the driver Mr. Nagaraju assigned was really considerate , he drived skillfully and made sure we stop to eat at safe, non-skeptical places. Recommendations from me.

      No support from VFM. No help in planning out our days. Instead of suggesting a better option or a proper plan beforehand they just tried to finish the trip as if it was a ola/uber trip.

      Traveltriangle and Carlo Travels planned and executed our south India trip in a perfect manner and supported us well throughout the trip. Thanks to them for continuous assistance throughout the whole trip. Big round of applause for our driver Mahadev for his excellent driving skills, punctuality and humbleness. Sightseeing plan was flawless and hotels offered were also good. The Holiday Home Resort in Kodaikanal was very serene and peaceful, we spent a good time there. However, typical south Indian style food concerned us in ooty initially and we managed with good hotels suggested by Mahadev. Thanks to Carlos Travels and traveltriangle. We look forward to availing your services for our future trips...

      Travelling with Lee Vacations is not an experience but it’s an emotion.. Our trip to Mysore, Coorg n Ooty was very well planned by Ramaya.. Pickup from airport, hotels, sightseeing everything was very taken care of by Lee Vacations, n not to forget our companion for the trip Rajeshji was very kind enough to take ous to all the places n make us explore to the core.. He was very well disciplined, punctual n helpful with good driving skills. Also specials thanks to Ramaya to help us for some alterations during the trip.. A big thumps up for Lee Vacations.. Highly recommended Everything
