It Was Our 1st Trip Which Is Made A Memorable One
It Was Our 1st Trip Which Is Made A Memorable One

It Was Our 1st Trip Which Is Made A Memorable One

With flamingo tours, it was our 1st trip which is made a memorable one. Our tour manager Mr. kushal shah is just perfect guide.
On the very first day Mr. Kushal shah wanted us to have a great bonding amongst each other so that we get the best experience possible. He always tried to serve the best food and at the proper time. The thing that was best in him was that he always shared some or the other things related to the place we were visiting in an interesting manner. Mr kushal shah tried to give information about the place in an easy language understoodable by every participant and never meant to behave partial with anyone. A negative or say a sad point  was that the Orlando hotel which was felt comparatively poor quality. We were given quality shopping time and he also enlisted what activities are to be done in parks that are the best in that particular part. It was overall a very good and unforgettable experience. 
At last would say that hats off to the tour manager Mr. kushal shah.

Thank You So Much For Such Amazing Services !

Our trip to USA and Canada wouldn’t be so wonderful if it wasn’t flamingo. We had the best experience of all, the sightseeing, the stay, the food, the tour headed by Nirali. 
She was pretty good with the management and gave the best ever experience and guided us through everything. Our highlight of the tour was definitely the Niagara falls, Canada and the room with the view was a complete surprise. Thank you so much for such amazing services.  Also thank you Palak for all the support and guidance for the tour while booking.

We have no words to describe how impressed we were with the flamingo's American Dreams tours. It was the most detailed and extensive tour we've ever had, nothing was left out. Specially the tour manager Mr. NIRAV SHAH was superb, personable, attentive and accommodating to every detail for our total comfort. Best of all, he was informative. This man was a fountain of knowledge in history, politics, economy, geography, and all around local information. His sense of humor was timely making the experience entertaining and interesting. We couldn't wait to hear more of the subject. We highly commend him for a job well done...
