    It was nice experience with Brij Tours . Everything was exactly like it was discussed before the trip. The communication was thorough throughout the trip and the drivers were always on time. One thing that I would recommend would be go give more option To the customer to choose from, the people traveling might not always have all the information of the place. So if depending upon the customer’s needs and travel type, you can recommend them options and help them customize their trip personally. Apart from this everything was awesome. ...more

    I traveled with my family to Manali, Agra and Delhi during Feb end 2015. and booked package trip from Himalayan Navigators. This is the best travel agency I have ever met. Himalayan Navigators had given me the best customization package. Inclusion/Exclusions were clearly mentioned and are met as well. All the cabs/buses/hotels provided during are very nice. Best part of the service is they are very friendly and available all the time during trip on phone and assist you if any problems faced with hotel/bus. Special thanks to Chander Kant who assisted us getting best package and assisting during entire trip. Also thanks to Pawan and Sushil for showing us best sight seeing and eating places in Manali :) Final words: This is a genuine review, if someone is looking for hassle free travel in Himalaya or Delhi/Agra, I would definitely recommend Himalayan Navigators :) ...more
