    Mrs's 10 days trip to Dehradun

    Overall good trip but On-trip assistance was not good by Kamal. The worst part is the last-minute change of hotels when trip is in progress and those changed hotels were cheap ones compared to booked ones as per trip itinerary. Other than that its a good trip. Ideally, I thought of giving 9 ratings before the trip started as per the communication with agent Kamal. But he disappointed me only by last-minute changing the hotels when trip in progress, which indeed made us face difficulties as it was a family trip. When this was discussed in conf call with Preeti from TT & Kamal, He was rude too, stopped the vehicle on the road. Other than that all went good, So giving a neutral rating.
