Service of SOTC

Address:Bangalore, Karnataka, 560038
Website:SOTC

I have just finished my Dubai Shopping Festival 2017 tour with SOTC. Horrible services, just WASTE A LOT OF TIME without showing anything on the first day of arrival...no proper planning or proper co ordination of the guide with the tourists...does not cover all the important places properly. If informed before itself, tourists can go on their on...but waste our precious time...last minute surcharges are just a trap for us. BEWARE of SOTC!....

Sotc are the biggest cheats of the travel industry. they display attrective price on their web portal to allure customers and then the call center asks for more. they are even non apologetic. i am shocked at their unprofessional behaviour.
i have travelled with so many but they are really shocking. the website books the tripa at a certain rate and they ask for more.

Horrible experience to get refund from SOTC. They have charged outrageous cancellation fee of 50000/- per person for a Europe tour for my parents who are senior citizens but their visa got denied and had to cancel booking. They have charged 10000 to some and 25000 to some others but to us, 50000 without any company policy.

When booking a package, visa fee is included but in refund, it is not. They also do not provide details...

Mice events abroad

Address:Mumbai City, Maharashtra
Website:www.sotc.in

There is a lot going in name of mice corporate events thats being done broad.Internal workers will try to get all the payment for the events in cash from the clients.
Sotc already puts up bracket of 30% margin on the cost. The sotc manager puts up another 10% margin on the cost

So actual event cost id lets say 10000 usd — manager will quote 11000 usd — sotc will quote 14000 usd to corporate client.
