It was my first experience with Pick Your Trail. I wanted to try something new and I must say, I am really satisified with my decision. From planning my itenary solely customised on my preferences to the the live operations support during my Dubai Trip, everything was really well planned and executed. Despite of a few minor inconveniences (which were ultimately solved), the trip was really well handled by the team and the services provided were excellent. I would love to plan my next trip with Pick Your Trail ?Thank you for an amazing time and I wish you guys all the best for the future ?
