It Was A Demonstration Of True Flamingo Spirit!

I would like to share my experience of 'Eureka Europe' - Flamingo Travels! This travel story of mine happened at approx 3200 meters on Mt Titlis, Switzerland. By narrating this story I am trying to introduce you to the true Flamingo spirit! Our trip was indeed memorable because it was our honeymoon! Flamingo is the best in business because they know to touch hearts and being our honeymoon, they made sure that we get an extra night in Paris. We arrived a day early to Paris and got time to explore the city of love! We couldn't ask for more! After Paris and a few other wonderful destinations, we arrived in Switzerland. Our third day at Switzerland was planned for Mt Titles. Being a very beautiful place, Mt. Titlis experiences a heavy rush of tourist every day. Mr. Kiran Patel being our guide was very supportive of his approach and guiding us throughout the trip! Kiran Bhai instructed us really well about the situations in advance, so we all members were ready on time in the morning. We reached on the mountain earlier than other tours and we enjoyed the great weather and exciting snow activities without any rush. Our lunch was scheduled for 12:30 pm at the first base of Mt. Titlis, at the restaurant named as Trubsee. All members were supposed to reach there by the time. Now comes the tricky part! On the top of the mountain, there is a very popular PhotoStudio(www.phototitlis.ch) which dresses up the tourists in a traditional way and clicks a very beautiful photo for a souvenir. As it was our honeymoon, we thought to have a memorable photo for ourselves as well. It was already 11:30 so I told Kiran Bhai to leave for the lunch as we will come down ourselves after photo shoot to join everyone by the lunchtime. He agreed and all our tour members started leaving by 360° ropeway. But there was a trouble! It was almost 12:30 and we still were in a que. I called Kiran Bhai and make him aware of the situation. He told me to be calm and continue with the shoot as lunch is not yet started. It's about 12:50 and still, we were in a queue. Lunch was about to finish downstairs. There were other tourists in the queue with us. As the time passes by, many of their respective tour guides started internal arguments regarding time issues with the passengers. Their tour guides were blaming the passengers for being late and literally forcing them to leave the queue and skip the photo shoot, or else no one will be responsible if they miss the tour. It was surprising and strange for us. We were feeling fortunate as our tour guide was being very supportive. It was about 1:00 now, we were getting panic and thought of leaving the queue as it was a time to leave for a bus. I called Kiran Bhai again to start leaving or the ground as we will skip the lunch and join all directly on the bus. Now is the beautiful part. Kiran Bhai literally convinced us that it is absolutely fine that we would be late, as all other passengers were aware of the situation and they told Kiran Bhai that they would wait for us. It was so overwhelming for us! We finished shoot around 1:30 pm, one hour late! We rushed to the ropeway and reached Trubsee at 1:45. Everyone along with Kiran Bhai was happily waiting for us. They all made sure that we do not skip the delicious Pavbhaji of Trubsee. As we started having lunch, co-passengers started leaving for the ground. Mr. Kiran Bhai was waiting especially for us and he came down with us. We had a very good photo memory which we shared with everyone. It was family like feeling which words can't describe. We were truly blessed to have such family-like co-passengers and a guide! It was a demonstration of true Flamingo spirit!
