Well, we have heard of family trips, couples’ trips, friends’ trips and now solo trip, but you know whats the coolest we have found till date? It surely has to be travelling with your siblings. Sampada, like the smart elder sister she is :-P, decided to take up one such amazing surprise trip with her sister and she chose WanderTrust!
I found out about WanderTrust while searching google for travel options. And when my sister saw it, she instantly related to it as some of her friends had also travelled with you guys in the past.
We can never be thankful enough for the good word that our lovely clients spread for us! Now, let’s dive deep into this travel story by Sampada.
Ans. It was very nice and the process itself was very relaxing, to be honest. I wanted to go on a trip since long but due to work and busy schedules, there was no way I could spend the amount of time needed to plan a good trip. Moreover, my sister lives in a different city, so to travel together she would have to come down to my place. This would all be a mess if not planned well, but the way everything was taken care of was amazing. We really did not have to do anything. It was very hassle-free. And we loved the destination chosen for us.
Ans. We were supposed to stay in a hostel in Coorg, I have tried hostels in the USA but never in India so initially, I was a little unsure about the thought but my sister was really excited so we decided to give it a try. And it was awesome! We even met some friends of friends, and after talking realised that we played together in our childhood, if not for this, we would have never met. It was really unique and new experience. We spent a lot of time reading books in the hostel and also talking to other people. Later at we stayed in a resort in Udupi which was also great.
Ans. Yes, the envelope had reached well before time and I was waiting for my sister to arrive to open it. We opened it together, just one night before the day of travel. It was really exciting. And specifically, because the destination was a surprise I really liked that the itinerary had all the good instructions like places to visit and eat at, it was very useful. We were really interested in trying local food and visiting cafes and the itinerary did help a lot. We just had to pick our likings from it and it was up to us to drop some, so it was pretty flexible as well.
Ans. Frankly, I was scared in the beginning while opting for it because I am the elder sibling and I had to convince my parents that I would take care 😛 But the way everything was planned was very very smooth. Especially we were concerned about language barriers and also the local tour cab, but there was no issue at all. The cab person was really nice, he took good care of us always and was very prompt. He helped us with our local shopping and was also very careful, he made sure to keep in touch and ensured we were safely dropped at places and back to the accommodation.
Ans. We were really craving for the beach. I am a beach-person. When we went to Udupi there was this absolutely clean beach which was amazing, it had a lighthouse. That was a great experience. Besides, Mangalorean food! Definitely loved it.
Also, me and my sister had not spent much time together since very long, so it was lovely. The whole surprise element itself was amazing. It was very stress-free, we knew things would be taken care of and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We didn’t have to think about anything going wrong.
Ans: No. But yeah, it can be too much to ask for because you people are already doing such a great job, but it would be really great if the itinerary also has small instructions about the time to visit a place and travel distance, so that we can plan each day more precisely, and would not have to use Google 😛
Ans. I would rate it a 10/10 and I am surely going to recommend it to my friends. In fact, I was so happy with the trip and intrigued by the concept that I offered to create a free application for WanderTrust! I am a professional UI/UX designer and yeah, I really liked the trip that much.
