    I was one of seven people that did this entire trip. When booking I think it is important to know that this whole trip is a combination of lots of little trips. Srinagar day tours are really good and drivers know lot of things about trip and they do stop anywhere n if needed and on the way to Gulmarg you can see Mughal gardens just in one day we all loved Gardens and the best thing was that it was in the evenings and during the day time it is packed with thousands of tourist and best time to visit gardens is either in the morning or evening Thanks ...more

    Dear Ghoomteraho organiser, What a wonderful time of my life i had with you in Kashmir-Vaishnodevi tour in May 2013. We were a group of 18 pax. The moment we thought of going for a holiday we contacted ghoometeraho.com and we did not have to worry at all. Preetam ensured that we book the flights at the earliest and we got the tickets at the cheapest price. All thanks to Preetam that the Flight tickets were in our hands even before we made the full payment. Our Tour Manager Siddhartha was a brilliant guy with perfect discipline and managing skills. He met us twice before the departure and guided us about the program, what to carry and what to wear. He took special care of our old grandmother when we all were up at the Vaishnodevi temple. hats off to you Siddhartha. The hotels in Katra, Pahalgam, Houseboat in Srinagar was beyond expectations. The bus was a bit issue but considering the budget we understood and adjusted in it. I must say this was the most cost saving tour we ever went because we met tourists from other tour companies and the money we paid was much less than what they paid. If you want to enjoy to the fullest even if you have limitations in budget, then there is no other option than ghoomteraho.com Many Thanks Sagar Rajput ...more
