      HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE OF CONDUCTED TOUR WITH TRAVEL AMIGO
      HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE OF CONDUCTED TOUR WITH TRAVEL AMIGO I, along with 25 co travellers booked a tour program with M/S TRAVEL AMIGO on 24 th December, 2023 for Bandel, Chandan nagar and Sreerampore. This was my first tour with them, and definitely the last one. The terrible experience is listed herewith. • The pickup time from esplanade was at 8:10 AM.We reached the spot at 7:L30 , the bus left at 9:AM.The tour operator /manager who was supposed to travel with us was not available on phone. The sr. citizens had to wait there, standing for more than 1 and half hour. • The first destination was Bandel church, the route was not known to the tour operator. Went to wrong direction, had to reverse the bus resulting loss of time. • Throughout the tour , there was tremendous lack of professionalism, leadership quality and miscommunication .The tour operator was not bothered to organise the travellers at one point , prior to heading for the next destination, resulting delay .There were persons of seventy plus age, who naturally walks slower. • Even there were differences between tour operator and guide regarding the tour points. The museum at chandan nagar was not in the list, Burt suddenly he escaped from the group not announcing about the museum, resulting half of the party could not visit it. • The timing church at chandan nagar sacred heart church was not known to the operator, we found the gate closed. • The Dutch cemetery, which was in the list, was not shown. • Resulting of the above chaos, and mis coordination we had our lunch (or early dinner ?) at 4:30 pm.The lunch was scheduled at sreerampore earlier , but suddenly it was fixed at chandan nagar. However, lunch was nice, probably the only thing during the tour. This post is not intended to blame any particular, but to highlight the extreme lack of professionalism, communication, knowledge of the tour and lack of coordination of the tour operator. Shortcomings of a few things are always acceptable, but not expected to happen at every point of the tour.

      Durga Puja Parikrama Comments
      Had two Durga Puja Trips, namely Shohortoli-r Durga Pujo (on 22 Oct 2023) and DoshGhora+ Chak Dighi Durga pujo- (on 23 Oct 2023). -Pricing. Rs. 3100/- for each person each trip is pretty highly priced and is no value for money, only with merely 2-4 ordinary Pujas of some old Bonedi Bari or Rajbari being shown. (Surprisingly, WBTC conducts similar tour valued at Rs. 1800-1900/-). Value for money = 3/10. -Coordination with those Rajbari Pujo organizers is also pretty poor. So guests are often treated badly, despite paying a high price. Prior coordination of route, timings and with Puja organizers at respective venue = 4/10. -Timing management is extremely poor. They arrange for sitting breakfast prior to commencement of tour which is a little more than ordinary no frills breakfast. Lunch is a bit better but served at 6-7 pm post tour. By that time neither the coordinated hotelier is able to serve fresh food, nor the guests are in a mood to have lunch. Perhaps they aim to skip the evening tea and snacks. Lunch at Hotel Maureen, VIP Road was good with spreads consisting of mutton, parshey maach, chicken biryani and they were generally good, though served pretty late at 6pm. But their breakfast was ordinary. Also their service was rather below ordinary. Next day the lunch at KKR Cafe Delhi Road at about 6pm was pretty stale with a few dishes gone bad. They had kebabs, fish, mutton, rice, chicken and icecream. The hotel appeared unprepared to handle large number (27) of guests. But they were courteous. The hotel people were ready with their lunch at 2pm but we reached there at 6pm. Also there were no prior intimation from the tour conductors before we reached. Food and service = 6/10 - Transportation. AC Bus was provided of City travels. First day the bus was good but windows were all covered with ad posters so that one could not see outside. Second day the AC bus was not very good and seats were rather uncomfortable. Transportation = 6/10 - Basic Precautionary measures - Very Poor. The team was organizing a trip of a rather large group of guests which consisted old persons and children. Yet they had no first aid box. Basic medicines were not carried. One of the guests sustained an injury and the tour conductor was rather compelled to halt at a medicine shop and buy a basic medicine. The minimal amount of empathy is but expected. Secondly, the bus ought to have a Fire extinguisher, which could not be seen. I would rate 2/10 on this count. - Conduct of tour. Staff were courteous and helpful. Though most decisions appeared unplanned and impromptu. The tour guide lady was very courteous but knew very little about the visit spots or its history. The tour conductor was least flexible and rigid with regards to its prescheduled itinerary, irrespective of the wonky time plan they had. Tour Conduct = 5/10 Hope the team takes its lessons from guest's feedback and does some positive introspection. A much better service at a much better price is expected.

      It’s delight to watch Flamingos.
      It was beautiful nature walk in short trail and then ferry ride to watch Flamingos from close. The guide Bobita did a great job with sharing knowledge on life cycle of various birds.

      Great experience witnessing history before our eyes
      We did the Bonedi Bari Parikrama by Travel Amigo on 2nd October, 2022. It was a very well organised trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and informed us about the history of all the Rajbaris we visited. It was a great experience witnessing history before our eyes. The breakfast and lunch was also delicious. We enjoyed every bit of it.

      Amigo 2022 Durga Pujo trip
      Content of this 1 day trip was pretty good. The host was nice lady to get along with everyone and understand their needs. The afternoon lunch delayed so much that for one hour all of us were waiting for food. Most of the folks didn’t like the food so much but I loved it. So good timing and taste can be improved. The terracotta temples which we visited were so beautiful that we wanted to spend more time but I can understand it’s a day trip with many fun filled activities. For a person like me who comes from Maharashtra this trip was nice as I could see ruler part of Bengal.

      Terrible Pujo Parikrama - A disgrace when we are promoting the Kolkata and its heritage of Dura pujo
      Very disorganized travel plan, and it is nothing short of harassment in name of Puja Parikrama. Bus ran 2 hrs late, all locations not covered, no sync or connection with the places they visited. Breakfast served at lunch time and lunch at evening. The tour guide was crowd sourcing information from fellow Bengali and translating back. We called the organizers apart from apologies they didn’t have any corrective action plan. 3 familes including us had to abandon the trip mid-way in utter frustration.

    Our pujo parikrama tour was excellent. We were 7people together. Excellent hospitality and they have provided excellent food. The Bus was very clean and comfortable.
    The tour guide was excellent..He has narrated the history of each Bonidi bari that we have visited.
    Only suggestion please include sabarno Roychowdhury bari ....which is one of the legendary bonidi bari....
