Thomas Cook brings people closer. This was proved when our office’s team of freshers went on a corporate team. The intention being to let everyone know each other better was understood by Thomas Cook and they arranged for various activities at different places. Travelling with Thomas Cook is the best experience one can ask for.
On our visit to Sikkim, Thomas Cook’s team upgraded our hotel and provided us a honeymoon package stay at Gangtok. It was a nice gesture which made our trip even more memorable. Since it was a honeymoon trip, we didn’t want to go on much sightseeing. Keeping this in mind, they arranged hotels with rooms that offered gorgeous views of the hills and clouds floating over them.
My wife wanted to visit Darjeeling and Sikkim for our honeymoon trip. The majestic Himalayas and the fresh air was what we needed to know each other better. Thomas Cook offered an extensive itinerary that included Darjeeling, Kalimpong, Gangtok and Pelling. The team organized rafting in Teesta River and Paragliding at Ranka. It was a fun and enthralling experience.
