Service and coordination from Blooming has been extraordinary and they took utmost care of our safety and comforts. We visited Manali in a very tough month to travel and the guidance, vehicle provided, hotel in Manali were top notch. We had a change in our schedule and people in Blooming showed no hesitance to help and change it without any cost. I wish to travel few more places through these folks once again in the Himalayas.

The vacation to Sri Lanka was a refreshing change from the daily rush that characterizes life in Mumbai. The driver assigned by Acquasons, Mr. Priyantha, deserves special mention for his courteous behavior. However, it would be nice if better options for vegetarian food are explored by Blooming Holidays
Excellent service by Mr. Ashish and our point of contact in Leh, Mr. Wangdu. Very accommodating to our constant change in plans throughout and hence made us feel at home.Good rooms and taxi service, on the back of a good trip itinerary, made for a great trip overall Thanks Blooming Travels
The Itinery was well designed. There was always scope for customization. We didn't have to worry about anything. We just relaxed & enjoyed the entire trip. Ashish always was in touch to check the status & comfort. At every hotel the hospitality was very good. We were taken care. We would definitely recommend Blooming Travels & we will opt them for our future tours.
Thank you for a memorable holiday. Ashish had contributed greatly in planning and making this a great holiday for us and my thanks to him. The personal touch and care provided by Wangdu in Leh, as well as Gigmet (the manager at Kidar Hotel in Leh) were exceptional and greatly contributed to our enjoying the holiday. Please pass on our thanks to them.
