We had a wonderful Swiss vacation that was curated by Pickyourtrail. The team is engaged with you right from the day you express interest till days after you are back from the vacation, ensuring its your best experience ever! :) They ‘handhold’ you literally with their app which provides constant notifications and support on information about activities, local maps, eateries and even a currency converter. Thank you PYT!

"So it all started with the catchy site of Pickyourtrail. I would say it is one of the best travel sites I have seen, with very easy customizations and cost calculations. The planning for the trip to Switzerland and Italy was great with good suggestions provided, they were knowledgeable about the locations, distances ,means of transports and must watch things, also the customizations as per our needs were considered.There visa support team was also very supportive in following up with of our Visa status. All the hotel, internal travel vouchers and Swiss pass were provided right in time and to add to the perfection it was properly ordered. The support during trip is one very cool thing about them. They were actually very supportive in runtime arrangements. 2nd June was National day of Rome and we had return flight same morning. The roads near our hotel were closed but support team helped in early drop off to Airport. Overall it was an excellent experience. All the locations were superb and it was our one of our most memorable trip. Thanks to PYT team for making this one memorable. Would like to mention special thanks to Subbu, Suresh, Sahal, Customer support team and customer happiness team."

We planned our vacation to Switzerland and Italy with pick your trail in April this year. It was a lovely experience. I recommend PYT because : 1. PYT gives flexibility in planning and you own your vacation plan. PYT team does help you with useful suggestions. 2. Their app and tools are way better than many giant travel planners. 3. Online support during vacation is good and you can expect help easily using the PYT app. 4. PYT team is supportive and proactive to assist before and during the vacation. I'll definitely consider PYT for my coming vacations.

I am a bit late in writing my review here but I owe these guys one. They helped us plan our Swiss trip which turned out to be the best trip so far. They were open to make any changes in our itinerary whenever we requested. Were kind enough to give extra info regarding the commute and places to visit. Will definitely go with pick your trail for future trips.
