Budapest, Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam, London & Paris - July/August 2019
My name is Kiran a Kiwi from Auckland New Zealand but truly a Mumbai Indian.
This all began with my desire to travel to Europe, this wasn't my first solo backpacking trip but I was very excited about it.
I have been traveling since an early age in groups, with family and friends. I would like to believe that I understand the dynamics of such tours or maybe? While I was in Auckland I came across an ad of Travel to Discover on FB. I went through their trip plans, photos, websites, etc.
TTD travel plans/itinerary had good gist of the tour including dates, travel plans, costing, inclusions, exclusions, etc. Finally, in April I called TTD and spoke to Naman, this young lad was very friendly, helpful yet professional and from there on we started communicating via emails, text, and calls. After a couple of calls with Naman, I felt comfortable and thought of giving it a go. Apart from Budapest, Prague, Berlin, and Amsterdam I wanted to add a couple of other cities/country, seamlessly Naman helped me add London & Paris and provided me a revised quote. A few days later I booked the trip and was on board. Naman suggested me few airlines and helped me with booking info but before that most of my hostels and other bookings were promptly done by Naman and emailed me all the booking confirmation. There wasn't any latency in this process. Naman advised me on insurance, forex card, sim card, how much cash to be carried, etc. which was really helpful. I carried cash, International debit card, and jio international roaming plan. Naman also helped me with London and Paris travel plan and after a few days everything was arranged/organized from both ends. Closer to the travel day Naman also arranged a call with other fellow travelers and patiently answered our queries and walked us through the travel plan etc. Whatsapp group helped stay in touch with fellow travelers and Naman throughout the tour. The only suggestion I think worth mentioning is if any hop on / off or site seeing attractions are NOT just booked under one person’s name where it increases the dependency on that person to avail entry when his or her presence is required. As any business model should be open to change as change is constant. I always believe if you don’t ask you may not get it hence please explore more hostel options as there is always a room for improvement.
Overall the trip was great, I think TTD has put a lot of effort, time and material to prepare the travel plans. Naman was very helpful, patient and professional hence will not hesitate to recommend TTD.
Until next travel plan haera ra.
