  • Richard and Barbara N. from USA

    The folders with the stamps, printed stationery, post cards and the beautiful gifts were unexpected and outstanding. The gifts at every stop were a delight!!! We will treasure each of them. Thank you for the time and effort involved. The staff has been excellent, could not have asked for better. We were so well taken care of, we always felt watched over, and so comfortable wherever we went. Thank you so much.

  • Newton & Ellen M. from USA

    We had the best trip ever. We have traveled for 45 years around the globe but I think that we were most taken by India. the guides you selected were wonderful, knowledgeable and easy to understand and the driver made us feel safe and for that we are most appreciative.
