I will write my review step by step.
Booking and planning the trip - Mr Vishal was very good in planning and in negotiations as he planned the itinerary very well and gave us the cheapest cost possible which made us to choose Shoes on loose immediately. He always ensured that everything will go smoothly.
Travelling and driver - I must say the driver was excellent. He drives very safely and smoothly. He even interacts with you time to time and cracks jokes in between. He really made our long travel enjoyable.
Travel agent during the trip - There were few glitches initially. The driver wasn't communicated that we had paid full amount in advance and because of this miscommunication, he had no cash during the trip. So we had to give him 2000 rupees in petty cash which he returned back after coming back to Delhi. So you must make sure that such small issues should not happen and other people may not take this lightly. We were even informed that the check in time will be adjusted to match it with our travelling time as Delhi to Kasol is a tiring journey. But when we reached Kasol at about 9 a.m. the dorm room was occupied and we had to wait in chilling temperature till the people staying check out. After calling the travel agent, I got the reply that check in time is constant. I can understand that its not anyone's mistake but this situation could have been avoided.
Hotel and hotel agent - Hotel agent Rakesh was very good while the hotel is quite good for bachelors or lone travelers. The dorm room was decent. There was a miscommunication about providing breakfast too as the hotel doesn't have a kitchen. So again I had to call the travel agent and then only the breakfast was made available from next day. Though breakfast was really delicious.
Overall trip - As I said the itinerary was very well planned and the trip went smoothly. So I will give this trip 3.5 stars. And definitely I will choose Shoes on loose next time. Thanks for making our Kasol trip a memorable experience.
