Driver was very rude, mis-behaving, always tried to escape many locations, put on AC as per his choice even on plain areas, didnt park the car properly in parking, asked us to get down on road instead of parking. I contacted make india journey but there was no positive response from them. Then their channel partner Blessing holidays assured to provide new driver, but ultimately he also raised his hands. So we did not have a comfortable journey. Pls take suitable action.
