The 10 days sikkim tour was just amazing as the ground team had made superb arrangements in terms of accommodation, sightseeing, and food. I would say it is one of the well planned and well executed vacation experiences I have ever had in my life. Despite the ongoing covid situation, we managed to make our way to some of the best tourist hotspots and were able to enjoy the alluring vistas all around. The customer support team was very responsive and helped us with all our queries. Thank you Thrillophilia for some of the best memories.

Booked a sikkim tour for my parents last month and this was our very first vacation experience with Thrillophilia. Luckily, it was just amazing as they made sure my parents get everything covered in the package starting from hotel accommodation, meals, sightseeing tours, pick and drops and what not. Spending 10 days amid the beautiful scenic beauty of sikkim and being pampered with highly personalised offerings has given my parents some everlasting memories to cherish. Taking this tour package from thrillophilia, my parents were able to taste the authentic cuisine of Sikkim as well as get time to interact with the locals to know more about the culture and traditions. I would like to thank every single member of the team who have worked to make this trip a delight. If anyone is planning for a vacation to Sikkim in their holiday vacations, then do consider the package offered by Thrillophilia which is very cost effective as compared to the long list of offerings.
