Happy Traveler Says

Customer Review
Indira K S Panch Badri Yatra

There are very less tour companies offering this package so i was very happy to finally book it on yatra by heli. It was a dream of mine to take my parents for panch badri yatra. I just filled the form on the website and they immediately contacted me. I went for panch badri with my parents and it was awesome. We were guided by our tour manager throughout and she had even included all the places of sightseeing we wished to cover. We stayed in comfortable hotels and the car service available for us was always on time. The darshan was so good and my parents absolutely loved it. Even during the whole trip, the tour manager was constantly in touch with us to make sure we have no problems along the way. Thank you again to the whole team!
