    Vishwesh's 4 days trip to Dehradun

    Worst experience with Amazing Uttarakhand. The travel agent Neha-7037168170 and Abhishek, both are greedy ducks of money. They promised us hotel near 3km from Mall Road in Nainital and gave 16km far. When we asked for so, they were cutting our call and asked only for money. For the entire trip, they kept on fighting and we explained them that what they promised and what they gave is different, so we need compensation for that. And they refused for that and said at all involved partners that, DO NOT LET THEM CHECKOUT UNTIL THEY PAY MONEY, DO NOT START CAB UNTIL THEY PAY MONEY. Worst people. Don't ever buy package from these people. Fake and fraud people.

    Amit's 5 days trip to Dehradun

    Helped us plan our trip to Uttarakhand, Shivam was available 24/7 on call whenever we needed help. He was able to re-plan the trip without any problem when we decided to change one of the destinations. When we did not like one of the accommodations he pro-actively changed it without hesitation. I would definitely recommend him for planning your next trip.

    Hotels were not that great just ok. The trip wasn't organised orderly. We didn't knew about all the places that were selected for visiting. Hotel food was average. Overall I can't recommend to use travel triangle. Visiting auli was a good memory in the whole trip.

    It was our first experience with 1 Point 5 Billion Inches Travel Co. Sandeep Bharadwaj has been associated through out the trip with us and he made sure he understands our requirements and provides a tailored itinerary accordingly to us all. The trip went smooth from start to end, no major hiccups. Sandeep was available to sort all the issues / confusions as and when needed. The accommodation and transport arrangements were exactly as promised (couple of them were even better than what we might have underestimated initially). Sandeep is bright and aspiring person in the field and he makes sure he provides you best of his services.

    Deven's 6 days trip to Dehradun

    The trip was executed excellently as per the plan. But due to travel distance between the multiple destinations and while returning it got a bit hectic. Over all experience with hotels and Cab was impressive, but overpriced which I realised later on the trip.

    Rajesh Mukundan Menon

    Bangalore

    Rajesh's 5 days trip to Dehradun

    My recent Uttarakhand trip covering Mussorie, Auli, Corbett and Nainital was an amazing experience. Krishna Holidays took care of all the arrangements right from my pick up from Delhi to dropping me off back in Delhi. Nisha from Krishna Holidays is a wonderful organiser and she has been on top of it right from day one. My initial trip was booked in April'2020 however due to the pandemic I had to reschedule it to December and Krishna Holidays took care of all of that without any issues. Due to the current situation I had requested them to work around the vehicle arrangement from Delhi as I wasn't comfortable using a Delhi vehicle. Mr. Nitin from Krishna Holidays personally came in his own vehicle to pick me up from Delhi Airport and dropped me at Dehradun where our Innova Crysta was already waiting to commence the planned journey from thereon. Following are some of their key highlights. 1. Excellent customer service right from start to end 2. Giving that personal touch professionally 3. Excellent Itinerary planning 4. Good hotel selection (could be a little better though at a couple of places) 5. Flexible and accommodative I would highly recommend Krishna Holidays and I myself will surely go with them again for all my future vacations as well. Huge thanks to Nisha and Krishna Holidays for making this trip wonderful and a memorable vacation.
