Varun Elavia Day Out at Panchgani
Attended this package in Feb : 2021. There were couple of Misunderstanding and Miscommunication between me, supplier and thrillophilia. The Actual supplier is different and the contact person showed by thrillophilia is different. Had to raise couple of support tickets to get connected with the correct supplier. The Food (Both breakfast and lunch) was super tasty (both veg and non-veg). The host was a perfect gentleman and very helpful person. He arranged food for our driver in no time without any issues. The day was full of adventure and got heavily tired towards the end of the day. All the 5 activities mentioned above were perfectly covered.
