So happy to choose PYT to plan our Maldives trip. Toshita and Ajith were both very prompt and presented us with varied options for our stay. We stayed at Coco Bodu Hithi. This was one of our best holidays.. thanks to team PYT for always being prompt in answering all our queries. The PYT app is amazing. Well made with all the features Can't wait to plan our next holiday with you guys.

The experience right from the booking till the end of our trip has been amazing and hassle-free. We planned the trip 10 days before our departure and Pickyourtrail helped us with great offers. Everything was taken care of, this was my first international and it didn't seem like it, because I was well prepared thanks to Pickyourtrail. Maldives was amazing, August is probably the kind of season that suited me with not too much crowd, great night skies and beautiful marine life. Adding few pictures from the vacation. Also can follow me on instagram @samipghosh.
