Customer Review : Trip to Manali during January.

Q Why did you choose Manali as your tourist vacation spot ?

I had never experienced snowfall , and it was in my must do things before I die. I always enjoyed reading new stories about snowfall in the hilly regions of Himachal Pradesh , Kashmir and Uttrakhand. So one day while reading about snowfall in early January of this year(2013) in Manali I and three of my College friends planned a trip to Manali. This was a instant decision as we had to reach their at the earliest to enjoy a vacation. So we scrambled to find a bus , a hotel and a guide to show us around in Manali. While searching we hopped to the DelhiTourist Website.

Q Tell us more about your Trip in brief .

There were cons and pros of visiting Manali during off season in Snowfall.The cons were most roads were blocked due to snow , which made us reach Manali a little longer and we could not pay a visit to Rohtang Pass. [adrotate group=”1″]The pros were there were no people on the streets of Manali and SNOWWWWW!!!!!! , the main reason we were there. We spent two nights in Manali and half day in Vashisht and Kullu.

Q How was your journey from Delhi to Manali?

Staff at Delhi Tourist got us a deluxe Volvo bus from Delhi , we boarded the bus at Ramakrishan Metro Station which was convenient to us as we reached there via metro from Gurgaon. Bus was very comfy , we were provided a WiFi , small blanket and a Water Bottle , there was also a TV in the bus. This was quiet cheap for a price of Rs 1200 we paid per person for a bus ticket. As I said earlier our journey was delayed due to snow , apart from that bus journey from Delhi to Manali was awesome . The bus stopped at three destinations for Food etc which was enough to satisfy my small bladder. Same bus was provided to us while we returned .

Q How was the hotel we booked for your Group?

We were booked in the hotel which was very far away from the little crowd there was at the mall road. Our hotel was just opposite to the Hadimba temple , just in the middle of snow (again we loved it). Breakfast was awesome at our budget , we did not take dinner or lunch at the hotel . Beds were good , heaters were provided at extra cost , there was 24*7 heated water supply. Bathrooms were not that good.

Q How was sightseeing in Manali ?

Snow Sightseeing I would say. We visited Vashisht ,did some sliding and trekking over Salong valley. Then mostly we strolled around near monasteries and other local attractions . There was rafting at Kullu but we coudn’t go over there on last day due to some reason(our). I would say it was value for money , and we enjoyed our journey and bonding over bonfire with friends.

Q How would you rate and would you refer us to your friends .

I would definitely refer you to my friends as you were among the most friendly travel agents we met.

I would rate the following services as follows :-

  1. Bus/Journey :- 4.5/5
  2. Hotel:- 3.5/5
  3. Guide for sightseeing:- 5/5
  4. DelhiTourist Staff 5/5
