    The Hotel location provided by the agent was so bad, that we couldn't get food outside the premises. We already specified that we are travelling with one child & one infant. So the food availability near the hotel should be the priority. Also we had to spend lot of money in travelling with personal cab in entire trip. All specific instructions were given to all the coordinators. Still it got unheard. Its a very poor approach to the customers. I am not at all satisfied with the Hotel. Due to that, we had suffer with unnecessary extra expenses. I expect a call from the concern team to discuss the same. I want a proper explanation.

    Achin's 6 days trip to Dubai

    The trip was very well planned and executed by your team of Eva Butterfly in Dubai. The management person was very helpful there (Mehul) with all possible changes which were done on the spot. Just one place where i had a bitter experience was in Desert Safari, In this Driver came last to pick us and forced us to sit on the last seat of the Land Cruiser. Despite of the fact that I was travelling with a child of 3 years there was no consideration from the Driver for the same and was very rude with the whole process. Regarding this I guess you should provide updates and requests from the traveler regarding the possible seat selection (can depends on Cost basis as well). rest of the trip was very well executed. Thanks for the whole streamlined process and I will definitely recommend others to others for this selection via Travel Triangle. Note :- I did only Choose for site seeing and Hotel and Flights + VISA was on my own.
