Just did the Himachal Trip with BykoJourneys and probably is one of my best decisions of 2023 !! An awesome team of our trip captains nikhil and naveen who are super chilled out & fun to hang out with.We did have some feedback for the trip leaders at the beginning which was heard and we saw changes in the subsequent days, which was awesome. BykoJourneys team is open to feedback and did their best to make us comfortable. The stays/ hotels booked were safe, clean and awesome..no complaints there. Overall a fun trip with a fun gang ! Will probably do another one with Byko soon. Thanks for the memories Byko !!
