    Vrushali Lok

    Delhi

    Vrushali's 8 days trip to Dehradun

    It was our bad luck that due to whether conditions we were not able to visit munsiyari. hotel and food were good however the driver was not good. He was good in driving but he was very rude and was talking continuously on phone . In mukhteshwar the car stop 4km before our hotel due to snow as it was not able to climb up but in the morning most of the other cars were able to climb up but the driver was very arrogant and said that it won't climb up and we had to travel ourself towards the car.

    Chandan Kumar

    Bengaluru

    Chandan's 6 days trip to Dehradun

    Our trip to Uttarakhand was very good. It was arranged by Mr Deepak, he booked all the hotels rooms, river rafting in Rishikesh and Jim Corbett safari. Whatever he communicated he was able to deliver it, but we had cab break down initially. Later he arranged a new cab and gave a good driver. I would recommend this travel agent as he is very kind and very responsive to your questions. Service is very good. One suggestions would be to give better cabs which are in running conditions and also communicate with the tourists about which place that are planned on daily basis.

    Aman Gupta

    Kolkata

    Aman's 5 days trip to Dehradun

    Trip was totally mis organized. Hotel option given was too far from sight seeing in dhanualti. After prior addition of cake for my wife birthday the cake was not provided. Tried to call the agent alloted he was busy sleeping. Till date i havent rec'd a call from his side. Driver didn't had any clue about the itinerary. He said he is just been alloted the duty for 5 days thats it. He will go wherever i say. After we reached dhanulti we see that the property booked is another 60km far. Whole day was wasted in a drive only not a single sightseeing was done in dhanaulti. Hotel haut monde was pethitic in service wise. I requested for change of heater in room 4 time non of the time any person from the hotel show up and the agent was busy sleeping as i mentioned. Every hotel asked me for the payment done receipt why will i show them the receipt. This shows that there is no communication between agent side and hotel.

    Vritijain

    Hari singh park

    Vritijain's 4 days trip to Dehradun

    The trip was quiet nicely planned. And we got the hotel of our choice which has a fantastic view. We enjoyed our stay and they gave what they had mentioned in the details. So all in all a good one. The skiing we did was quiet the fun part and going to the top via chair car was one hell of a view. Auli is quiet the beauty of snow.
