All of us are quite familiar with the concept of “Use and then choose,” well something similar has come true for services by WanderTrust, but for us, it is “Use and then choose over and over and over again”! 😛 Basu Srivastava, a passionate traveller, has been to a lot of solo trips, and this is what he has to say about his surprise solo trip experience with WanderTrust. Basu chose us, do you?
Ans: I came to know about it through Instagram ads and then I checked their profile. I noticed that they have organised a lot of solo trips and planned trips, so I was just waiting to plan my solo surprise trip with them.
Ans: There are two things that really pushed me into this- the first being that I did not have to plan anything. The main part of a trip is planning, budget, timing, stay and everything else that goes around, and WanderTrust took care of all that. I had gone through the reviews and they were nice, so I was not uncertain about the service too. The second reason is that I was not able to decide which place to go to.
Ans: I would say that it was something like a telepathy with the WanderTrust team because I had planned to be in Varkala on new year’s eve, so the trip being to Varkala, it was very satisfactory for me and I was happy to have it crossed off the list. I had got a package Kovalam, so was an add on to the already amazing Varkala plan.
Ans: I would say that it was very well planned, my trip was for two days to Varkala and two days in Kovalam, so the WanderTrust team made sure that I visit the best. The itinerary was so detailed, and the places were so vibrant and exciting, and when I checked online for places to visit, they were the same. So yeah, great work!
Ans: The stay in Varkala was amazing, I was staying in this amazing hostel and I could just go to the balcony and look at the sea, it was so amazing. No hustle-bustle of the city but just the waves and I could read along, it was so serene. The other place, Kovalam, I stayed in a hotel. The hotel was aesthetic and had a nice ambience with a spa and all the Vedic treatments, so the stay was exquisite.
Ans: I walk a lot, so I woke up at 6 in the morning and started walking on the Varkala beach and there were a couple of roads and I just kept walking and I found myself lost. I could not find anything but then I spotted someone cycling so I ran for him and asked him the way and I had to come all the way around so it was quite a stretch of walk for 3-4 hours. But it will be a memory to cherish!
Ans: Nothing at all, all the numbers that were provided to me by the WanderTrust team, the arrangement of the bike pickups and the hotels, they were superb. Very smooth!
Ans: I would rate it a 9.5/10 and I do not have anything specific to say but I would like to say just one thing. If you are a female traveller, be it group or solo or be it, anyone, for that matter and you love travelling, WanderTrust is the place to be!
If laying back yet loving to travel fits exclusively on your travel resume, you are at the wrong place, the right place for you is here! Oh and yes, if you are wondering that your dream place might not be the one for the surprise trip, do not worry, we know telepathy too(smirks)! 😛
