It was a memorable trip good service was given by shoes on loose team.excellent service and wonderful time in our trip.
Had an awesome time. We booked an innova. Though it was an old one, the driver was very helpful. We didn't face any issues while checking into the hotels.Altogether it was a very good trip. Shoes on loose
My experience with SOL was very good for Pushkar trip. It was a memorable trip as the tour manager, co-travelers, locations, stays, folk music, live in concert by Harshdeep Kaur, Ajmer dargah and the fun, everything was perfect with imperfections. I loved the overall experience.

My first time experience with Shoes on Loose - Excellent... From the travel itinerary till the end of the travel was well organised and they were well connected. Thank you so much and will definitely recommend
Thanks shoes on loose for making my 1st marriage anniversary special , specially ashish he did excellent coordination and Kritagya too for confirmation of my tickets while returning back to Mumbai The only bad experience was the driver as he was a bluff master and used to show spots as per his convenience. My mistake was I didn't check the itinerary properly hence missed a few ......He even said his business does not depend on shoes on loose and the reviews don't matter . Anyways concentrating on the +ve..... I loved my experience !!
Rajasthan - this land of dunes, forts, history and wonderful hospitality. We had our tour booking done through Shoesonloose and the hotel arrangements were done perfectly. Initially we faced some issue with our cab bookings but later it got sorted, thanks to Mr.Suraj for his support during the journey. I would recommend to engage with this team if you are looking budget and leisurely options. Deals offered by them are really value for money. Overall a very good experience!!
