    Overall the service was good. Only problem we faced was the resort was very remote from the city and we don’t have mobile network or internet access. It was very difficult for us to communicate with our family members . Resort was good but very remote location.

    Rashmish's 4 days trip to Nainital

    Our recent family trip to Delhi, Nainital, Dehradun and Mussorie was awesome. All credits to Traveltriangle through whom we found the best agent Mr. Sanjay Arora of Doon World Holidays. The whole experience touched us royally- a luxury car and very well maintained hotel rooms. As a cherry on an ice cake, we got associated with friendly and service minded staff (Mr. Upkar Singh- drew our car, Mr. Govind- hotel staff). We enjoyed every bit of the North India tour. Thanks to Sanjay and Mrs. Indu Rawat of Doon World Holidays for co-ordinating everything well and making our trip a memorable one. Boating in the lakes of Nainital. Shopping at Mall road- Nainital Visit to Robbers Cave, Dehradun Zoo and Forest Research Institute in Dehradun. The view of snow clad Himalayas from our room at hotel Deep in Mussorie. Highly professional car driver- Mr. Upkar Singh/Paji
