    • Trip to Karnataka

      There are two things very important which is making any trips grateful the one is hotels & location and second one is cabs & drivers. In our case we got very nice cab and driver Mr. Naveen moorti and he served very good services to us and we satisfied with him during our trip also we are thankful to MS Bhargavi from VFM holidays she provided flexibility to us for shuffling our trip dates to one day and she was very polite and manageable. The only thing which we have disappointed the first one thing of hotel and location choosing skill we are not satisfied with hotels at all the places (Ooty,Mysore,Bangalore) except coorg. The banglore hotel was really worst in above all. so they should improve this thing rest of the thing are very good we really enjoyed during our vacation. Thanks VFM.

      It was a very well planned trip with a great cab and friendly driver. The hotels were superb and stay was comfortable. We would definitely plan our next trip with you, if it's possible. The stay at Mountain Trail resort at Ooty was memorable. The views from the balcony are out of this world, like straight from a movie and heavenly. The food arrangement need to be strengthened.

      A very well organised trip overall by VFM Holidays. Ooty was amazing, Mysore and Coorg were good as well. Only advice is plan either Ooty or Coorg at one time as weather/landscape almost same. I would prefer Ooty over Coorg. Also, dont plan Coorg in Monsoon, e.g July. It rains 24*7. Cheersssss!

      No proper communication.No proper arrangement of travel. So many agent involved but no proper planning made for trip. Driver is good but since he is also new for ooty so he couldn't help us.its duty of agent actually to provide good quality of service by providing proper planning.

    • Trip to Ooty

      It was a nice and memorable experience of sightseeing in ooty. Hotel Mountain Trail is bit disappointing in services.Poor staff management and limited and costly food items. Hotel Staff not bothered about inconvenience caused, TV was not working properly. Same menu items are served in breakfast daily and no variation. Driver Rajesh really made sightseeing experience to next level. his humble, sincere and polite nature is really worth a praise. Ms Ramya helped in trip arrangement well. Overall good and memorable experience.

    • Trip to Ooty

      I recently opted for the package offered by Foxpro Travels through Travel Triangle for a road trip to Mysore-Ooty-Coonoor from Bangalore. The entire experience has been an enriching one for me and my family. We were a group of 4 women and our driver ensured we were comfortable throughout the trip. The entire process, right from booking to paying off installments for the trip, was hassle free and effectively organized online. The agent assigned to the trip also ensured to stay in touch and follow up until all the formalities were finalized before the start of our journey. She also, at regular intervals, checked on if everything was going as planned. Overall, it was a memorable trip for us. Special thanks to Srishti from Foxpro Travels and our driver, Mr. Manjunath. We look forward to more happy trips such as this one through Travel Triangle! Thank you!!
