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.

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.
