    North East Would extend my appreciation to Harrak for a well-organized and well-informed trip to Gangtok, Darjeeling and Kalimpong, that I can recommend it to everyone!! The trip was awesome, educational and inspiring. It was well planned tour with polite drivers and adequately comfortable vehicles. The organizers complied everything needed meticulously. Even going to great length to keep us informed and updated through messages and calls whenever needed. Even the itinerary to suit our compressed time schedule. Throughout the journey there was no hassles , no delays and no missing elements from what was offered at the beginning. It was a safe, enjoyable and quite adventurous trip overall. Special thanks to the gesture of making our reception in the Gangtok hotel extra special, going out of the way of a usual Tour provider. ...more
