Visited Thailand (Bangkok & Phuket) with my family in January 2024 through this tour operating company. They prepared a customised itinerary for us, booked our hotels at both locations and arranged all associated transportation and sight-seeing tours. We had an enjoyable trip. Both hotels were good. The tours and transportation too were good and very well arranged by their local tour partners. They had created an Whatsapp group for close monitoring of our tour, which was very effective and assuring. Many thanks to the Flying Squirrel Holidays team !

I booked a trip with my mom for Bangladesh with Flying Squirrel Holidays. As the caption says - its taken care of, the team stood up to my expectations. It was an awesome and memorable experience. It was indeed special for me as my mom had a fabulous time. We visited 4-5 places in Bangladesh and every arrangement in each and every place was great. Starting from their flight booking service, visa processing, currency exchange, hotels, cab, itinerary, food - all was top notch. I definitely look forward to many more memories with Flying Squirrel Holidays. Well done Team and thanks a ton for the experience 🙏 👍 😀.
