      Driver was not at all friendly. When we reach coimbatore, he was not even coming out of the car to meet us. Myself and my wife had to search for his car in parking area. he didnt even help us with placing luggages in dickey. We have seen him friendly with other people/drivers on the way. he never smiled at uss and didnt even say good morning which is very basic manners tourist drivers should have. Firsttime ever in my lifetime i had tour with such a difficult driver. There were some communciation gap happened in between with driver and agency. I had to inform sky tours to coordinate it. He just did his duty by taking us to good spots. And his drIving is good. I am very happy with the services provided by hotel. We were having headache when we reached there and hotel guys gave us tablet and vicks. They have arranged very nice food from outside which is delicious and Moderate price.

      Best quotation I received from Lee Vacation and service they provide was excellent. Quick response to my all queries. I recommend Lee Vacation confidently to everyone Rajesh ( Our Cab Driver) he was a very good person we enjoyed his company and there was a lot of jokes and chit chat. He guided us very well and was very conscious related to our securityNext time when I will visit there again I will meet him surely

      since this trip has ended i m better at summarising the experience -: Negatives 1-at times travel triangle team response was very carefree, they did not look into complaints carefully and did not check for errors before posting the asked documents. 2-customize my trip(CMT) though promised complimentary breakfast in all three hotels ,but the very first oyo homestay hotel denied breakfast and gave it only when told that it had been promised in hotel voucher.this was brought into notice of designated CMT agent next day but still the next two hotels in beginning denied provision of breakfast and only provided when they were repeatedly told and shown hotel vouchers.instead of complimentary breakfast it felt like begging.Even when informed after day 1st the repetition of this suggests that that CMT team had no interest in instructing the hotel about complimentary breakfast. 2-none of the hotels had proper cutlery and utensils for serving of complimentary breakfast, it was as if they were forced to provide breakfast. 3-whatever the star status category CMT team might think they provided us but even a small hotel provides proper bedsheets ans towels .the hotel in rameshwaram was pathetic it had dirty sheets which were changed when told and dirty towels Positives 1-driver for trip nizam was good and was the only good thing in this travel experience 2-CMT advisor was prompt enough to tailor the invoice as per need all in all not what i expected
