No words can explain how great our Auli trip was. Everything was perfect from the minute we touched down.The local agency All Seasonsz was fantastic communicating everything that was going to take place and it all happened without a hitch. I highly recommend this company for a great travel experience especially in Uttarakhand....

Unforgettable Uttarakhand Trip with Allseasonsz.com
Every step of the trip planning was very professional and totally took the stress out of the planning. The itinerary and tours recommended exceeded our expectations! What a wonderful family vacation in beautiful hill state of Uttarakhand.
Fantastic trip and we enjoyed every moment of it. Tanuja did a great job working with us to understand our needs and create the perfect itinerary for us. We had very specific requests and Tanuja was incredibly patient with us, making multiple changes to the itinerary. She was also very responsive to email, oftentimes responding in less than 12 hrs. When we had 1 small glitch with scheduling during our travel, she fixed the problem right away. Overall, a well planned schedule with a good balance of tours and free time with excellent choice of hotel locations. I would highly recommend services of Allseasonsz especially their competent manager Tanuja !

Faced Issues during the Uttarakhand trip !
We recently completed a 12 Days trip to Uttarakhand. The exeperience was mixed, had to change the room in Mussoorie hotel Green N Breeze as the size was vey small and our family could hardly fit in and faced issues regarding going to Lal Tibba and Landour as the taxi we hired from the company refused to go there citing the local txi union issues and we have to pay INR 2000 from our pocket.The Jim Corbett safari was average as there was no tiger spooting though our driver Nandan tried his best to take us around the different spots where we could spot one.We again faced the challenge during the room changing in Hotel Ashdale Nainital as the room allocated was facing the back wall of the garden and in the process wasted our precious 4-5 hrs.
All Seasons helpdesk persons Ravi & Saurabh and tried their best to resolve all the issues we faced but in the whole process we wasted the significant amount of time during our trip.
Thank you very much for your review Aarti & Manish . We appreciate your candid feedback to help us to build on areas where we are doing well and work on those which need to be improved.Thank you again and we hope you are traveling again soon with us with enhanced services.
Completely top notch experience from start to finish. Our agent mr. Vijay at this travel company was such a good listener and collaborator, and he developed a perfect itinerary for our family. I always prefer to work with a travel company, and this company is excellent at what they do.
