Ashokdangwal's 8 days trip to PhuketTeam has given us support during the trip whenever required and made this journey beautiful.
Ishanm's 6 days trip to PhuketReviews of the arranged trip: Day 1: private vehicle was a 16 seater uncomfortable traveller bus but not the car from phuket airport to krabi hotel. Apple a day resort: Good to stay hotel. Can plan the stay again. Day 2: krabi 4 island tour: Lunch served was not good as compared to the other travellers, travelling with different tour services in Thailand. Overall tour experience was good except lunch. Day 3: krabi to Phuket transfer: through private car, comfortable journey. Centara blue resort- Resort property was huge but not managed/maintained properly, basic Amenities like room slippers were not even provided, there is safety concern for individual to roam alone, no proper lighting inside resort in night time, no CCTV monitoring in the individual buildings. Construction work was on going and not feeling safety for girls. Only water was available free inside room rest kept things were chargeable even a packet of chips was to be paid. No prior check was done on the property by TT Thailand team. Day 4: phi phi Island tour: nice overall experience, good tour service provider, good quality food served. Day 5: transfer from phuket hotel to airport- again the 16 seater cab. Overall ratings- 2.5 out of 5. Improvement needed- 1. We were not getting any information about the driver name, taxi number to match with, only we were informed the times to meet the person at lobby. Huge safety concern. 2. Least guidance to the travellers who are traveling, not even a single call made by TT team to actively understand the traveller needs.

Indira gandhi international airport (del)
Gurinderjit's 5 days trip to PhuketI planned my last trip through travel triangle. It was just amazing with no hassles. But this time i faced problem regarding proactive communications from executives. We were 2 couples, planned this trip. But at last moment our itinerary got changed but not of other couple. Which created a great confusion. Also I needed to ask for everything. Although things were as planned. It was still a good experience. At Safari world
Rohit's 7 days trip to PhuketThe trip was good - right from airport pickup to the last destination. Local Trip coordinator Ms. Pum was very helpful and the whole trip was well organized. Cheers to Journey Routers for the amazing trip.
Priya's 6 days trip to PhuketI would like to thank each one for organizing this trip for us. We had lot of issues and some things went the other way, but appreciate your patience and all the help for the same. Khushboo - Thanks for coordinating so we'll. Also, a few suggestions: 1. Pls inform the hotel check in as we reached Phuket around 10:30to our hotel and the check in was at 2:00pm. If this was well adv booking, it should have been done and informed to us. 2. Leisure days can be cut down or may be discussed as in our 7day trip, we act had only 3days planned... Besides travelling we had a lot of time.

Diksha's 7 days trip to PhuketHello, Travel 2 Agent. We are happily back after the Thailand trip and we’re quiet satisfied with your services. The guides were all good and the hospitality in Bangkok, Pattaya and Krabi were impressive. We were not really happy with that in Phuket. The hotel could be better there. The cabs were good and always punctual. Special thanks to Mr. Jatin Bhawsar, our trip planner for having explained us things well and planning the itinerary as per our needs. We are surely going to refer you to our friends and family for any further travel plans.
