Got the chance to meet some really friendly people on this trip and we had a nice time going all around Old Delhi with our friends. Cycling tour started early morning and we cycled to ghats of Yamuna river. We also indulge in boat ride and seen a church. At the end of the trip we had nice breakfast. It was very well organised tour. Our guide was very good and had awesome knowledge of the city.

I must say that it was an amazingly superb experience.. the Segway ride was too good and the guide was very polite and nice to us.. we thoroughly enjoyed each and every second of our ride.. I want to honestly thank Thrillophilia for being such a good platform for finding these adventures and rides!! Hats off to Thrillophilia.
Gurgaon has a lot of party hubs but this one stands out. With unlimited food, drinks, music, and dance, Smaash Cyberhub created a special place in my heart. Every New Year's party I spend somewhere near Gurgaon or Delhi. And this time also, I didn't find a better option than this. I took my friends to this place. Reasonable price for what they provided us. Great group of people having so much fun. Staff seemed very professional and lovely. Service was impeccable. I completely enjoyed it and recommending this place to those who love parties.
It was great days we loved it we got good service and good driver

Being my first solo trip, I was too nervous prior to boarding the bus to Kasol. But man, what a trip. First of all, I encourage all the readers to try going solo at least once especially on the mountains. The experience was overwhelming. I met other people as well in my journey that came via thrillophilia that made my trip pretty interesting. I enjoyed every bit of it. Whether it was on road, at Kasol or the kheerganga trek, I enjoyed every moment. Since it is October, the weather dropped significantly at Kheerganga, which was surprisingly pleasant for me. The trek was pretty hard but my guide helped me reach the destination comfortably. He was a lot friendly too.. I enjoyed the food as well. The best part was the bonfire at kheerganga to loosen us a bit. To sum it up, each and every moment of my trip was something I'd relish for a long, long time and I just can't wait to plan my next trip again. Thanks Thrillophilia. Cheers!

It was my first trip after waiting of long six months due to covid. This was first time I booked some travel plan and thrillophilia was the best option. I was so enthusiastic that as soon as Himachal opened its borders I wanted to be there and no other site could do it but thrillophilia arranged it. I am solo female traveler and my coordinator Mr Rohit and Tushar made every possible way that I am safe and comfortable during my trip to kasol. The trip was so well organised and planned that I didn't have to worry about anything. Thank you thrillophilia and team for great support and concern. I am looking forward for another adventure with you guys. Talking about kheerganga trek, it's amazing experience, full of greenery and water falls. It pushes your limits as it has some steep ascends. It took 6 hours for me to complete. Hot water spring is delightful after long tiring trek. Only a true mountaineer will understand how it feels to complete a trek.

A luxurious stay with all the modern amenities is well defined at the Roseate house of Delhi. It was my first trip to New Delhi,. Based on the recommendations I have booked this property from Thrillophilia with their user friendly website and hassle free check ins and check outs at the property. Their clubroom accommodation is too spacious, clean and well equipped with all the modern amenities. I have loved my 2 days stay at this property. Highly recommended to book through Thrillophilia for best price and value for money package.
