Keeping in mind the COVID – 19 regulations our trip was organized and completed with the guidance of Mr. Arpan Adhikary, and we had a lovely time on the trip.
After getting married post lockdown, Sikkim Darjeeling Tour was the only one within my budget and with the help of Mr. Arpan Adhikay from NatureWings, my honeymoon went very smoothly without burning a hole in my pocket. The selections of the hotel and car were excellent, and we had a great time visiting this ever loving honeymoon destination.
I went on a Sikkim Darjeeling Package Tour, along with my aged mother, and booked my package through NatureWings, with whom this was our third-time travel. Mr. Sandip Raha arranged our trip, and like every time, our trip went very well, the hotel rooms were booked on the ground floor, the driver was well mannered and even helped my mother get up and down the car. All the credit goes to the team for their efforts to gift us a good time.
My Darjeeling Tour was with my baby girl and my husband in 2019. The destination was stunning, and as I am a tea lover, my favorite was the tea factory visit at Darjeeling, where I tasted the freshly brewed and purchased a lot. NatureWings kept my request and passed on the information to all the hotels regarding milk and hot water for my baby and provided me with a good driver who was very helpful and kind. The arrangements were excellent, all thanks to Mrs. Mousumi Raha.
We went on a Darjeeling Trip at the beginning of 2020 and got a chance to stay within the sprawling tea estates while tasting the fresh brew from the tea factory. From the busy city of Darjeeling, Mr. Sandip Raha suggested the stay within the heritage bungalows of the Britishers, and surprisingly this was by far the best stay we had to date as we woke up every day with a great view of Mt. Kanchenjunga from our room. The check-in & check-out was smooth, and the arrangements were great.
Locating from the busy city of Mumbai, visiting mountains brings an inner peace within me, so for my honeymoon on Jan 2020, I planned to visit Darjeeling, well known for its vast stretches of tea plantation and world-class tea. After booking the air tickets, we started our search for a trusted travel agency where we came across NatureWings Holidays from Kolkata. After placing my travel requirement, Mr. Soumalya Ghosh explained everything in detail with a proper itinerary and perfect selection of hotels. The booking process was smooth as everything was online, so from the money receipt to Hotel vouchers and driver details, we received on time. After landing in Bagdogra airport, we met our driver Mr. Bikas a friendly Nepali man, who accompanied us throughout the trip, and transferred us to Gangtok Mayfair, a luxury resort surrounded by nature with a casino and after two nights stay we advanced towards Hotel Windamere in Darjeeling town near to the Mall, a colonial gem with the best view from the rooms. We covered sightseeing at both the places and had some pleasant time visiting M.G Marg, Darjeeling Mall, and the iconic Glenary’s. From town, we moved to the Glenburn Tea Estate, the best part of our stay, which was suggested to us by Mr. Sandip Raha, a close to nature stay in beautifully decorated rooms from the colonial era, away from the crowds with breathtaking views of Mt. Kanchenjunga. We walked across the tea estates and took a guided tour to the tea factory where we purchased and tasted the freshly brewed. The host arranged a bonfire with a barbeque where we spend our evening warming up while listening to some local music. All thanks to the NatureWings team for making our trip remarkable while Mr. Indrajeet marked his presence with follow up from day 1. We suggest NatureWings to everyone cheers to the team for their effort.
Being a Tea lover, I can drink tea at any time of the day, so when I came to know about tea tourism in the sprawling tea estates of Darjeeling, I knew I found my heaven. So without wasting time, I made a quick plan with my friends to visit and taste the world-class Darjeeling tea to warm up the winter of 2019, where one of them suggested NatureWings Holidays being an old customer. But good things come with good price and spending nights in tea estates were expensive, all thanks to Mr Sandip Raha from NatureWings, a pioneer in this territory as he suggested an itinerary along with tea garden stay within our limit. From booking to pick up at Bagdogra airport, everything was perfect, as we checked-in at Gomtee Tea Estate for 02 nights, an old tea bungalow in the lap of nature surrounded by greens with a homely feeling and well maintained clean view rooms. We enjoyed our walks across the gentle slopes of the garden covered with endless tea plants and visited the small factory within the estate where we tasted the freshly prepared tea. From the vast estates, we moved to the Darjeeling town at Hotel Elgin, a property with modern amenities and a lovely view of the mountains. The driver appointed was a nice punctual person while Mr. Indrajeet accompanied us over WhatsApp and phone. Thanks to the team for their arrangements, wishing to visit the “Mecca of Tea” soon while recommending NatureWings to others.
Darjeeling is a most preferred destination to visit if one wants to experience the beauty of the nature. If you are a person driven by tea then you thrilled with the beautiful gardens and sensational landscapes. Darjeeling has many tea estates including Glenburn, Goomtee and Sourini, one can see the process of tea growing and plucking and some of the region’s finest brews.
On a side note I found Glenburn far warmer with a little more of an eclectic atmosphere than some other expensive hotels in Darjeeling. We had a pleasant experience at our stay in a Bungalow that was typically the residence of a British tea planter built during the old colonial time. The property is well maintained and retain with a colonial charm, acres of space, panoramic mountain views as well as a beautiful lawn. Food served is usually made of fresh organic produce from the backyard garden. At Glenburn Tea Estate, your comfort and satisfaction come first, and they look forward to welcoming you to Darjeeling.
Just completed my Sikkim Darjeeling Package Tour, we were two members. I planned well my trip in advance with the help and guidance of Naturewings Holidays Pvt Ltd. They were supportive and communications done were very easy. We got a very comfortable stay and food in an excellent hotel at Gangtok. In Gangtok, the most amazing thing that we noticed was there was no AC/fan, etc used anywhere in hotels, houses, shops, etc as the climate is almost cool throughout the year. The weather was amazing for sightseeing at all locations Gangtok. Tsomgo Lake, Baba Mandir was like a doorway to heaven, so beautiful and we have wonderful memories to cherish from this tour. We went to see the famous MG Marg, an exquisite road. After Gangtok, it comes to Darjeeling’s review. Among the hill stations of India, Darjeeling is the most beautiful among all. Throughout the year the temperature remains low, so anyone planning to visit should take warm clothes with them. It is in West Bengal. Darjeeling is famous for 3 T’s Tourism, Timber, and Tea. The best part of Darjeeling was the morning view of sunrise from Tiger Hills. The breakfast in Keventer’s was bliss and the shopping at Darjeeling Mall was like a therapy. We stayed at Glenburn Tea Estate at Darjeeling to feel the tea beauty; I feel lucky to stay at the Glenburn Tea Estate. What a gem. It sits on a hilltop surrounded by hundreds of tea fields. We tasted the tea also and bought different flavored tea for friends and family. I will recommend this place and would rate 5 out of 5. I want to go there once again as I want to enjoy a peaceful life again and it is only possible in Darjeeling. Thank you NatureWings for this beautiful experience.
We have just returned from our trip from Switzerland to India, which is Gangtok and Darjeeling. We were two families and booked the package from Naturewings Holidays Pvt Ltd. As it was Durga Puja season, both Gangtok and Darjeeling was crowded so we could not get splendid hotels and cars. Naturewings helped us with booking. We stayed at Denzong Regency at Gangtok & Mayfair, Darjeeling & Goomtee Tea Estate. Gangtok stay was bliss; starting from the hotel to food everything was great. The driver which Naturewings provided was also friendly. After exploring Gangtok, it was an exceptional experience to stay in Mayfair Darjeeling. Outstanding ambiance with prompt services. We stayed in an executive room with a personal balcony with a magnificent view, the room and premises maintained properly. We highly recommend Mayfair, Darjeeling. And for a unique experience for a lifetime, please stay at Goomtee. It is an old tea bungalow maintained properly and spotless. They make food by local vegetables. We stayed in this tea garden. The stay was delightful. It is a serene place with breathtaking surroundings away from the chaotic Darjeeling city. An absolutely recommended place to visit if you are going to Darjeeling. As we are from Kolkata, so these kinds of places is heaven for us. And we are grateful to Naturewings for this stay. As a tea lover, we enjoyed every sight there, watched the tea plantations also, Tea tasting was a fantastic experience. We did a hike to the waterfall; it’s just an hour’s hike from the bungalow which was also an amazing experience. I would like to recommend it to everyone who wants to enjoy their holiday surrounded by nature’s beauty. Looking forward to visiting again. Thank you to the entire team for this amazing trip.
