A Fabulous Trip

Thank you for arranging a fabulous trip.

I must admit, the hotel and the staff at Mykonos and Santorini were fabulous and went out of their way for everything we needed. And the place of course was ‘breath taking’.

I would like to thank Dhwani & Travelmartindia team so much for such a wonderful trip. J
