    • Trip to Nainital

      Considering it an Off-season tour, the quoted amount should have been a bit less. Otherwise every thing as per contact was there. Agents should be fully aware of the geography and the map of the region. Hotel and stay at Almora was very good.Hospitality of the Patroskhan ( in stead of Ranikhet) Hotel was very good though it was nearly 30 km away from Ranokhet proper.

    • Trip to Nainital

      Initially we were worried that after making so much advance payment if something goes wrong me and my friends (accompanied ) will be very upset. However each and every programme went through smoothly. Miss.Sandhya was indeed very co-operative . All the hotels were perfect, Breakfast and Dinner very tasty and hygienic. Room service of all hotels, location etc. was really good . No doubt we will again take your services for other locations but fully recommended to all our friends. All the best. Lovely Himalaya Darshan from Hotel Visakha Palace Kausani and stay at Jim Corbett Treat Resort stay at bunglows with swimming pool and of course guidance and support of Miss. Sandhya .
