    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      Overall, the trip was well planned. Only issue we had was with the hotel. On papers, it is a 3 star hotel, what we got in reality was a hotel with 2 (and at times 3) staff manning the entire property. The entry was up a slope with stones and construction debris scattered all over the place. Facilities were not up to the mark either. There were no quilts, only blankets. When we asked for the bed sheet to be changed, we were handed a (hopefully) fresh bedsheets which we had to put on the bed. They were not able to take food orders since their cook was not available. But there was a menu in the room. Upon checkout they did not even bother to carry the luggage down to the car, even upon requesting. On a positive side the room was spacious and clean. The trip to Tsomgo lake, baba mandir and Nathula pass was awesome.

      Travel agent (deepraj)was very helpful and always reachable . Hotel quality cud have been better for 4 star hotels. Cab cud be given for full day. Like if i m going from pelling to gangtok. So once we reach gangtok at 2 pm driver will drol n leave n come next day. N i ask ant to go to market for 2-3 km then i have to gire another cab. They could proved cab on rental basis for full day n driver can stay with us n if we want to go market n shop 3-4 km he can go. It very inconvenient after taking the full package of 7 days then also we have to hire separate cab. Nathula pass

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      I must thank Sai tours and travels for the amazing experience i had during my solo trip to darjeeling- sikkim from 6th to 12th aug 2019. I had multiple issues from the time of booking however it was smoothly arranged and sorted by Mr Shivasish. I also had an amazing driver/guide Mr Binod who went an extra mile to make my birthday a memorable one. They made sure i had the best experience in every place i visited and also ensured i was safe and comfortable throughout.I celebrated my brithday there in a monastery and they were so thoughtful to get me a lovely cake and some candies to be distributed to the children in the monastery. Unlike regular tours and travels, they ensured there is a human touch to the services provided which in the end gave a high level of customer satisfaction. They look into the issues highlighted seriously and rectifies it as soon as possible to ensure customers and well taken care of. I will strongly recommend their service to any traveler especially if its your first time and you are not quite sure of whereabouts. I am very sure they can not only create a good and safe trip but also a memorable experience that you would cherish. gangtok , darjeeling

      Hi all this is my first trip with TT and expected a lot . Thought this trip would be a memorable in my life but unfortunately its not , because of poor coordination , planning and communication . I missed few places like natulla pass and few others . Travel agent by name DEEPAK was very rude . Accomodation was not upto the mark as there were poor facilities like lack of hot water , door hinges were dangling and food issues . Travel agents ( Neeraj and deepak ) dont answer / reply to the calls and they didnt communicate propley. Shivani was helpful through watsap Rest all omg ...... 1. Driving ......really appreciate drivers .A big applause 2. Yumtung valley 3. Zero point 4. Lachung
