Mr. Soumen Manna
This is my second domestic trip with Abhijit. Now I have taken Kerala Package (for 6nights /7 Days) from Travotic Holidays on 10th to 16th Jan 2020. I must say I'm not disappointed at all. It was a very well-organized trip right from the start till the end. Also, a beautifully constructed itinerary made it fulfilling. Definitely recommend Travotic Holidays to all of my friends and family.
Mr. Santanu Ghosh
Nowadays review means a lot. I recently went to Kerala with Travotic. I would say it was an awesome experience to be there in association with Travotic. It was a wonderful arrangement made. My daughter got hill sickness and I had to cancel Periyar. I was surprised that Mr. Avijit again took initiative and after talking to the hotel adjusted the money also. He had helped me in many ways from flight seat allocation to boarding pass etc. Apart from the support system, they have done wonderful arrangements with the beautiful Hotels. This guy has become my friend and I shall choose Travotic in my future trips also. Thank you Travotic and thanks Abhi. Wish all the crew members a good future ahead! This is not a paid review and what I have written is true in nature which I confirm.
