Tour reviews

Ms. Haimanti Mandal

This is just to appreciate regarding the services that Travotic Holidays have offered to us. I had booked 6 days Old silk route package rather than booking through a local agent. We had gone for Travotic Holidays only on good faith and some reviews. They had come up with the best services and kept the commitments whatever they had promised. All arrangements like Home Stay, Car everything was perfect but little bit improvement required in food selection.

Mr. Chiranjit Sutradhar
