Trip to Uttarakhandthis 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.
Trip to UttarakhandTrip was good. Hotels were nice and at beautiful location but food was average in one hotel. Candle light dinner and hotel sun n snow. Snow in mussoorie and swimming pool in Jim corbet resort
