    Avedis's 6 days trip to Bali

    I am really thankful to Devesh Tiwari of Befikre Ghumo Travels for all the arrangements and memories for our honeymoon trip, everything was properly done, pickup, drop, arrangement of all the tours and activities, we did not face any issue. This was our best honeymoon trip to Thailand. I am giving 4 stars because of the hidden costs not told by agent including few mentioned in itinerary. Please carry 20000 baht at least to make your comfortable with the expenses you need to have such as Indian food is quiet costly( around 150 baht for one person), Shopping is great in local markets,but price is little bit high. For island tour if you want to perform any water activities like scuba diving, snorkelling you have to pay, which is quiet expensive. Overall services provided to us was excellent, Befikre have done good job Day1: Phuket: After a lengthy trip from Kolkata to Phuket, we reached hotel around 3 PM( Hotel was 1 hr drive from Airport), same day around 5 pm pickup our tour started for Siam Niramit Show with Dinner. - When we reached at the destination around 6 PM, everyone welcomed us in great thai culture and traditions, we clicked some pictures and went inside, then traditional Thai dance show started with lots of elephants and warriors showing the Thai history, it was great, we clicked pictures with elephants and local Thai artists of the show, then we went for dinner, all types of food it was awesome, after dinner around 8 Pm we went to theater for Siam Niramit Show, which was awesome, you must watch it when you visit to Thailand, around 9:30 we went back to hotel after finish of show. Day2:Phuket: Our pickup time was 8:30 AM for phi phi island tour, we reached around 9:30 and done registration for 800 baht for island fee and went to phi phi islands bay, monkey cave, Thai bay, all the islands were awesome, we did snorkelling in Thai bay with Crystal clear water and also swimming in phi phi with my wife which was one of my best memory of Phuket, I would love to be there again. We clicked great pictures with memories and lunch was also awesome, we went back to hotel around 5PM. Day 3: Phuket: Our last day in Phuket was city tour, our guide was Ms Nana, she guided us very well, first of all we went to temple, great architecture, saw lot of Thai worshipping culture and traditions. After that we went to Dolphin show( paid 700 baht) this was not included in itinerary, great show really loved it. After that we went to Tiger kingdom in Phuket, we clicked pictures with tigers( paid 900 baht), not included in itinerary, after that we had lunch in Indian restaurant and went back to hotel to leave for bangkok same day. Day-4: Bangkok: We went for Bangkok City tour, guide took us to Golden Buddha temple, it was great architecture and awesome designs, similar to Phuket, then we went to another temple, saw some great Buddha idols and went back to hotel, city tour was around for 2 hrs, we relaxed at hotel, around 6 PM, driver came for pick up for dinner cruise, Chao Phraya Dinner Cruise, you must go in Bangkok, beautiful boat with DJ music, lots of foods and all people around the world will give you unforgettable experience. We went back to hotel around 10 PM. Day 5: Bangkok: Jungle Safari and Marine World: Our trip started with Dolphin Show, it was not that much great as Phuket Dolphin show, but was ok, next we have orang utan show(monkey boxing), bird show, cowboy show(all were awesome,once you must watch), after that we went for lunch and after lunch sea lion show was awesome, then we left for Jungle Safari inside car, we saw all the animals from nearby, you must do jungle safari, went back to hotel around 4PM.

    Shivaraman's 4 days trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

    After consulting with my friends and relatives, I came to know about Travel Triangle! All of the sudden I didn't trust a virtual travel agency! I had planned for a Honeymoon Trip to Gangtok, Sikkim and I was very much confused in choosing a trusted/reliable travel agent! After requesting for a quote in Travel Triangle, I received a call from Sai Tours and Travels, Kolkata. First thing that impressed me is their customer friendly interaction. Ms.Alisha spoke with me over phone and not to forget her Patience while answering my questions and clearing my queries. I'm not exaggerating an inch more or an inch less. Sai Tours and Travels is just amazing. They helped me carry sweet memories back home from Gangtok. Mr.Shiv Ashish of Sai Tours and Travels was in contact with me prior to the trip and even after to know how much I liked the trip. The driver, Mr.Bishal Pradhan was so friendly. Since I don't speak Hindi, I was too much worried about communicating during the trip. But Bishal spoke good English and I felt very much relieved. The hotel which we stayed was The Sikkim Retreat. Rooms were clean and decent. The Buffet was delicious and filling. Bathroom and Toilet were clean and hygienic. Only thing that I would suggest to the travel agent is to follow an order in sightseeing according to the importance of the place. I felt I had no time to spend in Institute of Tibetology rather spending much time in a flower exhibition which is of no use. Please consider this and fine tune your services during sight seeing. Apart from this, other sightseeing spots were amazing. Changu Lake, Nathula Pass and Gangtok City Tour was memorable. Thank you Team Sai tours and travels. Special thanks to Alisha and Shiv Ashish ❤ Cheers!

    Kuntalm's 3 days trip to Rajasthan

    We had a decent experience with Global Trek Travel. But 2 issues need to be reported here. 1) We stayed one night in a Desert Camp in Jaisalmer and our package did include free Jeep Safari. But the camp in-charge asked for Rs 2200 extra for the Jeep safari. Luckily we re-confirmed our travel schedule and went ahead with the Jeep Safari with them and did not pay anything. Later he (camp in-charge ) realized his mistake and apologized to us - but we were almost agreed to give him extra money for the Jeep safari ride. 2) We traveled to Jaisalmer from Kolkata - thus we had to take 2 flights - 1) from Kolkata to Ahmedabad and 2) from Ahmedabad to Jaisalmer. Air tickets were paid by us and was not part of package cost. Originally we planned to stay 3 nights (2nd, 3rd, 4th Jan 2020) in Rajasthan and our package cost, car service charges, and hotels were booked based on that plan. But due to unavailability of our return flight (from Jaisalmer to Ahmedabad) , we decided to take Red-Bus service in the night (at 9:30 PM) of 4th Jan. Thus hotel stay on 4th Jan were not needed, as well as there was no more need for car service after Jan 4th night . Travel agent did book the bus tickets for us, but they did not provide any kind of hotel for short stay on Jan 4th night. That was needed since our bus started at 9:30 PM and we were exhausted after full day travel in Jaisalmer. We had to pay for that night's stay in a hotel, as well as next morning's (Jan 5th) hotel stay at Ahmedabad. Altogether ~ Rs. 1800/- extra were paid by us. We requested our travel agent to book any hotel in Ahmedabad, but they could not since they do not operate in Ahmedabad. So we had to find a decent hotel by ourselves after getting down from Bus in the chilly, early morning of Jan 5th. Other than these hassles, trip went smooth. Car driver was very nice and helpful. Desert camp was kind of okay - but hotel stay at 1st night was nice.

    1. My flight at 11:45 AM from the Singapore to India. flight was having some issue with the air condition. due to that they asked all passenger to deboard the flight and again we boarded flight at 4:30PM from Singapore. it was my direct flight due to low fuel in the jet. flight first landed to kolkata and then they fly back for delhi. my estimated arrival time in Delhi was 3:10PM IST and due to all this shit i reached delhi at 10:30. 2. due to scheduled maintenance we were not able to take ride on the cable car and we asked Nam Ho travel agency to refund the amount they asked to contact local agency and they will refund the money however i didnt get any refund of cable car as well. i have already shared my ticket with the rocking trips agent. i would like to file the compensation for the both issue. due to flight delay my full one day got waste and cable car was on maintenance so we need refund of that too.

    Free's 5 days trip to Thailand

    To start with it was first trip to an foreign country for both me and my wife. On top of it, it was our Honeymoon. So this trip was very much special for both of us. Let me start with my booking experience. When I expressed my desire of an package in Travel Triangle almost 5 months before the actual trip, I got quite a few offer. But I like the one from Tripoholic because it seemed to me comprehensive as per my liking and within my budget. Sourav and Sree from Tripoholic was very much straight forward about what they are including in the package and what not. They also helped me with the other expenses I might incur for this trip apart from the package. So I was able to calculate accurately how much I am going to spend for this trip. Once I decided to book the package, first thing Sree did was to get the Flight and Hotel booking. One good thing here, Travel Triangle gives you flexible payment option. Total package was divided into 6 installments. Trip itinerary was planned meticulously 7 days prior. Gaurav suggested me to have speed boats for Island Tours which I accepted and it was very right move I say. I would suggest don't hesitate to pay few extra bucks for this. Now to start the tour we boarded from Kolkata Airport landed first in Bangkok and then from Bangkok to Phuket in a connecting flight. We checked in the hotel around 2:30 am in the night but we found bed was well decorated and it was a deluxe room. Next day we roam around the Patong beach and we immediately stuck by clean and beautiful scenic Patong Beach. Next day we had James Bond Island tour in speedboat. This tour was really awesome and the experience was out of ordinary with green sea, clear blue sky and scenic island in the middle of the ocean. Even the SIC lunch was nice both Veg and Non Veg. Special mention should be for Canoeing which was really a splendid experience. Third Day was for Phi Phi Island Tour which was also very nice. But I must say for non Swimmers like us it was not as enjoyable as Swimmers as we missed the Snorkeling there. But the Indian SIC lunch and beautiful Islands with Speedboat tour was really good. Forth Day we were transferred from Phuket to Krabi via Boat service. The experience from boat deck was out of ordinary. One must try this. Upon arrival to Ao Nang we were transferred to our Krabi Hotel by TukTuk Van. After some rest in the hotel we went out for Krabi beach and Market tour. We enjoyed the coconut Icecream and famous Thai Message that evening. Next day it was time for Four Island Tour. This tour was also very nice with Blue and Green sea water, Blue sky and lush green Islands and clean white sand. In the evening we went for some shopping in the Krabi Market. Next day we returned to Kolkata. Now coming to overall experience I must say the trip can not be planned better. Special thanks to Sree, Gaurav, & Pum. They were for help all the time. They went sometimes out of way to make our experience nice. I liked their dedication and personalized care for us. Flights were scheduled very nicely by Sree. Both Phuket and krabi hotels were very good. Pick up and drop from airport and hotel were on time always. Apart from this Sree and Gaurav were always suggesting us to try different things. At last me and my wife like to thank both Sree and Gaurav for making this trip a memorable one. Keep up the good work guys. Thank you again.

    Pushkar's 4 days trip to Thailand

    We are very happy with the wonderful trip arranged by ease o trip (specially Kunal). This guy is gem and has very good contacts in hospitality industry. Our trip to thailand memorable only because of him . All the arrangements done were exactly like we expected. Kunal has given his extended support when we were about to miss our trip not because of him obviously. we have booked thailand tickets from kolkata but because of mess created by Air India(own booked) we missed the flight booked by kunal.we have lost all hopes of this trip but kunal was saviour at last minute and just few hours before our departure he arranged another ticket for us from delhi. Cant forget this extended support and help. Trip experience was amazing and thailand co-ordinators were also nice and helpful. will definitely recommend ease o trip to everyone and now we are one loyal customers and will definitely recommend him to all our friends and family and for all our future bookings. Big thanks to kunal, Renu and ease o trip team. you guys are awesome

    Abhishek's 4 days trip to Thailand

    We had booked our trip with setango travel. Everything was good till the time we landed Thailand airport. Our travel agent Mr Rahul has told us that we require passport size photograph of ours for visa purpose which we were not carrying as it was never told to us earlier.It was big rush at Thailand airport and no airport authority was willing to help.when we called our travel agent Mr Rahul for the help then he suggested that we should search for photo booth at airport and run for fast visa as our connecting flight to Phuket was only 2 hours ahead. Somehow we managed to click our photographs and requested fellow passengers to allow us to go-ahead in queue so that we didn't miss our connecting flight for Phuket . we had to pay 200 TBH for instant photo and 400 TBH for fast visa. now another problem was waiting for us. When we reached hotel we were told that check in time is 2pm and it was 9am of the morning there, means we had to wait for another 5 hours to go into our room.when we called me Rahul then his answer was you pay early check-in fee and go to your room if you want to go early.just imagine that a person who has come after a day long journey and he has to wait for another 5hours to go to his room and get freshed.i had to pay 600 TBH for the same. My travel agent was frequently changing itenary by his own.he changed my hotel and flight from Bangkok to Kolkata as per his convenience. Half day Bangkok city tour was scheduled on 4th day of our journey. When we started city tour then we came to know that only two temples visit was planned for the day . Only good part of our half day city tour was our guide.she was very poilte and humble lady. In a nutshell it was our first international trip which ended with haphazard schedule fixed by our travel agent. In a nut shell it was a painful
