Sachinsri's 4 days trip to UttarakhandVery nice, but there was nothing in ranikhet Kausani view
Guptasubhi's 3 days trip to UttarakhandEverything seemed to be good in the package when we went for it but when it came to matching the services with the amount you pay,it wasn't worth it.The hotel we were provided was stinky and untidy(though when told they cleaned it up).The kettles and cups were not for those people who would prefer hygiene over anything.Only good thing about the hotel was a scenic view and that is why we compromised.Second day ,the package included four places which were not even known to the driver as well as the local people.When contacted the travel agent,they kept on giving promises that we are talking to aur seniors,our agents and to no end we were dropped at the hotel only after visiting 2 places of the package for that day.If you are booking a package please confirm the places which they included as it may only be the icing on the cake.
Surbhi's 4 days trip to UttarakhandI had my trip booked by Krishna Holidays for Haridwar, Musoorie and Rishikesh. Services were good in the hotel except in Mussorie where i had to pay 2000 rs extra for having room heater in the rooms. Also this information was not told to me before so it came as a shock. Toilet was stinking bad, even after changing the rooms the situation was same. Whole night we had to keep exhaust fan running so that the room does not smell bad. Food was however good. No guide was provided for the trip and the driver was very rude and arrogant.. Most of the times he would not talk properly . None of the information about the places he said, he would just park the car and will ask to go and see the place by ourselves. No body was checking through out the trip. If we have some issue then i had to call my travel agent . She was helpful after reporting the issue but it would have been great if she was in constant touch keeping a track if everything is going well. Overall i would say my experience was not that great. the service could have been much better.

Prathmesh's 5 days trip to UttarakhandHotels were great. As I expected. Food was good. Can driver was not aware of the route from Delhi to nainital. I was guiding him throughout the route. And at times he was not even listening to me. That resulted in slight delay. Agent was helpful throughout the trip. Only cons was we were not able to visit the said zones in jungle safari. Instead we were taken to a nature zone. Overall trip was good. Could have more better. Chilled nainital. Yummy food. Horse riding, and many more
Prem's 6 days trip to UttarakhandThanks to Sandeep and Ansh who were trying to accompany us all the time keeping us engaged all along the trip.

Agents were also able to get us the good deals for hotels and rafting. We had a very good experience. Highly recommended Place and Agents!
