Reviewed: Wine Tour in Bangalore: Flat 10% off

 Rated : 2.0

Based on previous reviews, I booked a trip for the “Wine Tour”. It was just a waste of Money and time as it’s around 100KM from Bangalore. Activities included in the package: • Vineyard Tour First of all, there was NO Vineyard or anything. The facility has a restaurant, Children play area, wine shop and a wine tasting chamber BUT no VINEYARD. Thrillophilia didn’t even bother to get the latest update before including the activity in the package. • View Wine making process It’s mentioned that except Sunday the facility is active and they will take you for a real-time wine processing tour, BUT in reality, they demonstrated the process showing dead and disassembled machines. It was just an ORAL theoretical demonstration which someone can get online. I was highly disappointed as the guide was in super hurry to complete the tour and explained everything at the maximum pace and he wasn’t even clear, he was sort of mumbling all the time!!! • Tasting 5 varieties of wine The variety of wine you may get, depends on package you selected which is completely a silent feature and you won’t be informed about that. Overall, I would say, “thrillophilia” has a very bad offer in regard of the details and update. My suggestion would be to opt for some other option as you might be disappointed.

we went on weekday... the crowd was zero... due to that the food spread was less... we got cup ice cream which was worth 7 rupees. the curd rice and Biryani was horrible. . over all the spend was not good because of food and the weather was also too hot and humid.

So this place is pretty average.. The food spread and the menu was good .but the quality of the food was terrible.. . Few things were stale and looked as if they just recycled it.. The pools were maintained well but the chlorine smell was overwhelming. The ambience is good especially the cave entrance.... I would say it isnt good enough for the amount of money we pay.

Bad customer service. Not suitable for a couple. Probably good place to hangout with a big family or group of Friends. Not much activities to engage. Food quality decent. Swimming was the only positive.

We four of us booked for Narayangiri night trek with lots of hopes of having fun while trekking which we did but we found poor organising from the side of organisers. Many were assured that it will be dry and they started complaining about the rain, in Monsoon season you can expect rain any moment so they should have been told the real fact. Even though we were fine with the rain, it was hard to listen to people complaining. We were also told that we will be provided with coffee/tea on arrival which they happily skip as we were late Boz of late pick ups and had to wait for the guides for some time in the bus. It was a little disappointing to see poor organising while we left Bangalore with lots of expectations. Bus driver was rude and hardly cared how our trip went on, he even insisted on doing things faster next day as he had to return to Bangalore early but we took our time as it should be. One thing I really appreciate is that the guides were friendly and kayaking and swimming was an awesome experience. My suggestion is to stick to the itenary and what u promise. Improve on organising things.

Resort was good. But thrillophilla experience was quite pathetic. We followed the location map given in the pass that we got after the booking. We reached somewhere on Nandi hill road with almost no one around. Called up resort and realised that actual location is on a different road and we were some 20 km away from the actual location. Ended up wasting some 1 hrs in all this chaos. You gotta do your basics right Thrillophilla :(

It was very average. The places that have a smaller name have better hospitality and service. You get bored after a while. The food was oily and not as tasty. The welcome drink was Roohafza and then Rasna! Where's the effort guys? You've got such a good name. I think as of now only Mango Mist does justice to everything in terms of food, hospitality, service, games etc. Will not be going back to Guhaantara again.

Good place to visit... Lake camping was awsm experience... **********But If you are going alone without guide please dont keep your vehicles near the start of trek.. The villagers stole the fuel from our bikes n even broke the lock... We took 3 bikes and all three were damanged badly n no fuel left.... Worst experience ever......

We just went here last week end as 30 member team. Saw several reviews but it was not worth the money we felt. What's good : Only nature as you are outskirts of bangalore What's bad: They just had only trekking and swimming - they sent guide but that guy just stands and no safety measures undertaken - for swimming - they just give life jackets, no one will monitor or help you during kayaking etc. you are left alone to do your self What is very bad: Food is THE WORST part i have ever seen. Honestly! - Morning, idly, vada was not good taste. chutney n samabar too watery - lunch - they just gave veg pulao and water like butter milk n banana. No taste at all - evening - tea is again water. mirchi bajji is ok types. It might be good before. we did not quite like it Now.

WORST EXPERIENCE, we got to know about this resort in thrillophilia, took all info and booked over phone in one week before when we went there no welcome drink served, facility was not at all good, they only told us Swimming pool is dirty you can't use. Rain dance is not there due to motor issue dry games area was also not clean, they could have informed us this when we reached there but after 1 hour also no one came to us to talk so we only went to contact manager that time they told all these, dont even think to go to this resort if you want to spend good time.

Took my family for a day out here during the weekday.. the only thing my kids were looking for is to use the swimming pool which was unfortunately not in a condition to be used. The pool was very dirty and was told that it was due to the rain the previous day. Very disappointing outing. However the food was OK though served at the table and no buffet available...Staffs are helpful.

Our Wine tour with lunch at Nandi hills was postponed to February from January as we were told that harvest begins only in February. So the date was set for 14 February 2015....4 of us girls decided to embark on this fun tour. All excited we arrived at the venue at 10.30 am sharp, alas a group of foreigners were yet to arrive and we had to wait about 45 minutes. Spirits still high we waited for the actual tour. Package had mentioned - Vineyard tour, wine tasting , Lunch and guide charges. What actually was undertaken was - guide talk about the process of bottling and labeling , wine tasting and Lunch. Lunch could have been better - as this menu was just a veg Soup with Veg/Chicken biryani , Raitha, Papad and a Jamun at the end. The buffet spread was indeed missing ;) we were still wondering about the much awaited Vineyard tour and the process of grape crushing. But much to our dismay, the guide casually mentioned at lunch that we could undertake the vineyard tour on our own , if we wanted to.....to a place 20 kms away in our own vehicle with no guide in hand......essentially be at the mercy of the watchman there to educate us about Cabernet and Shiraz..... All in all, correct information should have been shared so that we would be prepared for all that had transpired. Hope the Thrillophilia team can ensure that other guests don't encounter the same set of problems.... Cheers .... Preetha

I had been with my family last Saturday. You can only do trekking, ziplining and swimming. All other outdoor adventure activities are damaged so u can't do. Food is pathetic. They don't have proper cooks. One can taste only salt or sugar in the food prepared. They had taken so many bookings during covid 19 saying they are operating with only 50% capcity. All the tents were placed so close to each other that u barely have space to walk. Big fat rats seen running around in the kitchen.

We went as a team of 34 members for a day outing and trust me guys, this is not at all worth for day out. No proper maintenance, the pool is small and water is soo dirty, for food, you have to wait for at least an hour because there are only one queue and no space for further, they don't have many activities as well. Nothing much you can do by going here. For us, it was a day waste and we felt like we would have planned to some other place. So guys, plan properly and enjoy but not to RD.

I wish I had stayed Home instead of going to this so called resort(Just a Bigger Hotel Only)!!! Tl:Dr; Avoid this place if you can! Worst staff, bad facility!! Would suggest though to Read through! 1st thing...This place is hardly a resort. It's just a place which is able to squeeze in a tennis court cum basketball court and a pool big enough and a garden. Yet none of this would have mattered if the hospitality and management were respectful towards their guests. We booked a overnight stay with breakfast and lunch the next day. Next day after checkout we were moving in for lunch when the manager told us that the Lunch(Brunch) that day was a special one and we have paid for a normal lunch. We had made the booking 5 days in advance and here they are telling us we cannot eat after having paid the money because it's a more expensive lunch. That's how they treat their guests!!! Wait...This is not it!!! This was just the start. After having sternly telling them that we are not responsible for your goof up and we won't pay anything extra for the lunch they agreed after around 30 minutes of waiting. Then came the Food & Beverages Manager "Mr Ronit" telling us that the restaurant is full now and they would give us a table in 15 minutes time. We agreed to wait. Within 5 minutes we saw some guests going out and another batch of guests going in. Curious I went in and what I found out was beyond comprehension. THE WHOLE DAMN RESTAURANT WAS EMPTY WITH ONLY 2-3 TABLES OCCUPIED. Now we were furious beyond our wit and when confronted with the above fact a "Mr. Gopi" another F&B Manager asked us to talk politely after being treated like this having fighting for the food that too after paying the money in Advance. You would think that this would be it. Wait..... We asked for a refund for the Food as we cannot any more think of eating in this god forbidden place filled with Idiots but no, we were to face a last act of Stupidity. While booking the place, I had enquired of adding a dinner as well which they said would cost us 600+taxes extra. When asked for a refund for the Lunch which we paid for, "Mr Ronit" the F&B manager said the refund will be room wise and not PAX wise which would be 600 per room for 4 rooms :) :P We were exasperated like anything and couldn't even think what to speak to these bunch of idiots. After a few very loud responses from us, they came to their senses and refunded us 600/PAX. @Fellow Travelers: If you have option please book another place else if you don't have any choice then do note the below points and follow them to the "T" 1. Carry your own Towel. The towel provided by them is full of LINT. 2. Forget about playing Table tennis, lawn tennis. All you would be able to play would be Badminton given that they don't complain that some guest has taken the rackets to their room. 3. Please do carry nylon clothes if you want to use the swimming pool. They insist on Nylon clothes so that for unsuspecting guests they can sell swim clothes. 4. None of the Fridges provided in the rooms work. We booked 4 rooms, None worked. 5. The staff is non-responsive expect for the service boys who are kind enough to try and sort the issues out for you. One AC was not working. We had to call them 4 times to get it to work. 6. Food at this place is OK. Nothing to praise about. So don't opt for food if you have option. Order online. There are tons of great options nearby especially "Maa Da Dhaba" veg food(Awesome food). @Management: You don't deserve it yet a BIG THANK YOU for the embarrassment we have to bear!! Hope we don't cross path again. You guys still owe me the Taxes part of the Food.

worst experience, there were a lot of things mentioned that it will be there but after reaching the resort it was told that the motor boat is not working, the boat on which we have to row is also not working, I was ready to pay for the water scooter but they were saying the person is not available as it is festival, after insisting only I got the service.overall I feel that the it was a loss of money for me by paying and just using the swimming pool and rain dance.if it was that only I could have used the same in some resort nearby why go so far????????????
