Drmadhuyadav's 6 days trip to Dubai

I m not Happy with my agent mamta not planned my holiday properly every time I have call her for update

Drmadhuyadav Raipur

Gautam's 6 days trip to Dubai

It was a memorable trip for us, but i wold advice you, to look at the itinerary very attentively. Because once you reach there it would be very difficult for you to deviate from it, reason behind is that, in Dubai we have different agent who had actually organised trip for us on ground. Also do checkout for your dinner option, and insist your agent to include it in each day with same cost. As many couple had dinner in lapita, but our agent had failed to do that for us, also they had got the package way less then us. So my advice would be do proper research about the place and connectivity and choose hotel as per your taste.

Shaif's 5 days trip to Dubai

Timely updates were not given, agents were confused about the schedule and rude to us when we called for clarification of the discrepancies (Mr. Kapil). He was very rude and when we said we will complain, he said do whatever you want to and was not concerned about our grievance. This made me think whether to book any travel through travel triangle in the future
