    • Trip to Nainital

      Driving was good but there was a problem in the attitude.He was just trying to escape from his duties and also misleading us. Behaviour was a problem and forced us to wrap up everyday by 5pm. We have hardly seen any places and also didnt get any knowledge from any place. Traveling was a pain cause there was no place to sit coz the luaggages had to be kept since there was no carrier on top. Since kausani was 200 km more he convinced us for Ranikhet to avoid extra driving. Behaviour was rude.As far as the experience goes, traveling with Mr. Sonu Joshi was pathetic and horrible..

      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.
