Yashwanth's 5 days trip to Karnataka

4 years ago
Hi, this is the first time I'm giving a review for the travel agent and their service made me give this review. As promised, Trip Asia made our 5-day trip successful. We have customized our itinerary to visit multiple places like Coorg, Sakhleshpur, Chikmagalur, Shimoga within the budget planned. As planned we have covered all the locations with an almost exact itinerary planned. I would like to thank "Pratheek"(Trip Asia Agent) for his pre-trip responsiveness & on trip guidance. On a special note, I would like to mention our driver "Manjunath", who has helped us to cover all places within the time frame without any hassle. I would give him 5 stars for his behavior, timeliness & cab cleanliness. Con: The only con is hotel provided in Sakhleshpur(Hotel Durga International) is not that good in terms of food and stay. So I request TripAsia to avoid accommodation in such hotels and provide a better one next time. Finally, I don't know about the other reviews given for this agent but trust me this is 100% genuine review I'm giving for their trustworthy service provided. I will choose TripAsia for my further trips as well. Thanks.
