    It was a good package provided by the travel agent. But am little disappointed for the travel guide provided by travel triangle. During my journey, I called my guide Kaif Alam, but he neither received my call nor called me back. Somehow the matter was resolved. I also tried to call travel triangle c
    ustomer care, but there also my call was not attended. This was unprofessional and not expected from Travel Trangle. Otherwise my trip was good.

    Shivank's 6 days trip to Dehradun

    The hotel booking experience was good. 2 out of 3 hotels were really good whereas the 3rd hotel turned out to be more of a homestay in the price of a hotel. The worst experience was with the transport coordinator. The trip began with the driver not showing up on time and then showing up drunk. I fin
    ally had to resort to using an Uber cab to complete the whole trip (which i was lucky enough to find). The overall experience was good however 1 rotten fruit spoils the basket. Shruti from Enchanting is very prompt and proactive in booking and coordinating. However i would suggest better control over transport coordinators and more transparency in the break up of costs. While it is not a mystery that agents work on commission, a breakup of where the expenses are going would be nice.
