      this is my Nth tour with travel triangle and my 3rd trip with TripSailer. To be very honest i was very satisfied with a trip with tripsailer before and never even considered anyone else. But the hotels were not that good. The homestay in auli didnt have proper doors that closed, i had asked for a romantic dinner and that was promised and paid for but did not happen. When after the trip i asked for the same, they said there was some lack of communication and they will give the money back. but it has been almost a month from the trip and we still do not have the money back. repeated communication trial with the travel agency has failed and they are just deliberately not replying to any calls or messages right now.

      We went for our Honeymoon to Nainital and Jim Corbett in February. Doon World Holidays managed our trip very well, everything was well co-ordinated. The trip was well planned so we got equal time see the locales and spend time with each other. Naini Retreat Hotel in Nainital was awesome, we had great time staying over there. Driver for our trip Nitin Kashyap was well behaved, knowledgeable and knew the area very well. He took us to all locales given in our itinerary. The Clarissa Resort at Jim Corbett was good and we loved the Jungle Safari. All and all, a great experience. Thanks a lot Doon World Holidays for arranging such a wonderful trip for us.
