    Saxenasakshidei's 3 days trip to Coonoor

    The trip was good but in the first day of my trip driver was unaware about the hotel and location. He doesn't know the English so I face some difficulty. In rest of the two days driver was also hood and he has covered all the places very well. Pondicherry trip was awesome.

    Gourangi's 4 days trip to Coonoor

    Our whole trip was quiet good.The driver was good as he took us to each and every destination .Although there is a little bit communication problem. So there must be some person with you who at least know english or tamil. One major problem that we have faced on our trip is that we have lost most of our belongings. We are not sure where they were lost but for sure they were stolen dont know by whom and where.

    Kolkata

    Gangulydebarati's 5 days trip to Coonoor

    I became aware of this agency from google.I had to pay all my installment except one before my trip started.That is very ridiculous.When I first got into the cab,the driver was asking for money.That is completely disgusting.When I was Traveling from Bangalore airport to mysore,on my way I got a call from travel agaent that our first hotel got changed due to some issues,which is really disgusting.Atlst after paying 95% money before the trip it was not expected.When I checked in the hotel,in reception they were unaware of our booking. Samething happened in our ooty hotel also(Maurya Sudersan).They even didn't know that our rooms were booked with breakfast package. They asked us to pay breakfast bill.When I told all thing to Mr.Gagan he that time somehow managed it but later pinged me in whatsapp very rudely that hotels people could be wrong but he couldn't.,which was very unprofessional.Then driver was not good.He asked us to pay some amount during the trip and somehow managed to complete the trip .We had to ask him about where are we going but he was least interested about these.Do changes these first..
