Kaas Plateau Sightseeing, Satara has been an amazing getaway for us. Being in Mumbai, we have a lot of getaway options, but with a couple of friends coming from Pune, we wanted something midway to both the places. So, Satara was pretty much a favourable option. Overall, the experience of sightseeing was awesome. The planning was professional and we loved being part of this wonderful trip. Even cost wise it was indeed very cost effective.

All I should say is 'wow'! This is the perfect place to come face-to-face with the Mother Nature and revel on her meticulous beauty. Not every day we get to see so many colours of the nature! Each moment spend on this plateau will etch a memory in your mind. All the thanks should go to our guide who helped us a lot in booking and completing this amazing sightseeing experience.

One of the trips that is worthy to be taken as a package. This trip is worthy if taken as a package than it is to be taken as an individual one. Cost-effectiveness is not the only advantage, but it improves the overall travel experience. I have done this both by myself as as by taking package and taking package was the best bet.

The biggest advantages of this trip were: 1. Food was good, 2. Transportation was comfortable, 3. The tour guide was having a lot of knowledge and experience with the area. 4. It wasn’t monotonous like other paid tours that I have taken. 5. The co travellers were fun to be with. The only disadvantage was that the trip was very short and I would have preferred it to be much longer than it actually was. I recommend this to all travellers.
