“...It’s been one of the best experiences of my life, thanks to Craig and his wonderful team

Eileen Hunter

“In January 2019 I was part of a group of 12 women who toured India with Craig. The itinerary was great, we saw and experienced a huge amount in the three weeks we were there - from sites, historic areas, beautiful parts of India, shopping, shopping and shopping as well as experienced some of the culture including an evening dressed in Saris with live indian music while we ate in a hotel that just catered for our group. All very special. Craig smoothed the way with his relationships and knowledge of the country and the hotels.”

Sue Wright

“We have been meaning to get in touch and let you know how much we enjoyed our trip with you. I must say, it is taking some time to get India out of our heads. It certainly gets under your skin doesn’t it"

Trish and Dale Shann

“Our Bikaner hotel - Stunningly elegant. Decadent and gorgeous”

Maureen Wood

“A fantastic trip, truly epic. You did a fantastic job for us and we felt very well looked after"

Tony Kellett

This was the trip of a lifetime. We were so well looked after by our guides who are passionate about sharing their love of India. They made us feel like part of their family while introducing us to the bustling, colourful, often surprising and enchanting, historic but modern, carefully organised chaos that this country is famous for. The accommodation was beautiful and ranged from home stays to palaces. We saw the breathtaking Taj Mahal with the very best local guide. We saw amazing old forts and temples but we did not stay only on the well beaten tourist tracks. We got a taste of village life and witnessed the huge impact the different religions have on everyday life firsthand. The food was unbelievably good and in plentiful supply. We even were shown how to look after ourselves as future more independent tourists with tips on bargaining and the local culture.

Julene Kelly

We had an amazing tour through Rajasthan for just shy of 2 weeks. Quite the most impressive trip I have ever taken - stayed in places I could never have found, ate in places I would never have known existed! All up a lifetime notable event!

Andy Crawford

Great small group tours, everything is taken care of. you just relax and enjoy the journey.

Dianne Sargent

“I enjoyed the tour very very much, everything was amazing. It was the perfect tour for me, and at the right time. I have been telling everyone who will listen about the fantastic time I had. Thank you so much for an amazing time and for making my dream holiday come true!”

Glenda McLean

“Thank you so much for your organisation and skills in arranging and carrying out this trip. Trip was brilliant and I can’t compliment you enough on the way you have organised and run this. As I said to you I knew nothing about India other than Delhi belly, overcrowded and a marble tomb where someone buried his wife. When asked where I was going in India I just said I have no idea as the places meant nothing to me and I was just going to meet this bloke in Delhi and he would show me what I needed to see. Couldn’t be better. I think your heart is in India and you understand India which means we did see all I needed to see and experienced the real India. I don’t believe this could be done as well through a conventional travel agent. The trip was full on and if I did this myself I would not have done half the stuff we did. The modes of transport alone were amazing - from flying, driving, tuk tuks, rickshaws, camels, elephants, Mewpar express train and Kerala backwater cruises - yoga, Aruyveda massage, monkeys, elephant with cataracts, plenty of dogs, snake charmer, spice markets, fantastic craftsmen making jewellery, carpets, tapestries and marble. We went from cold to hot and I did like the way we wound down at the end with the relaxing Kovalum beach and beautiful sunset and the Kerala backwater cruise which was one of the highlights for me. Waking to the sunrise, 25c with a gentle breeze while sitting at the front of the boat on the topdeck, still water and so quiet. It was true peace. The trip was full of highlights and another for me was the St. Francis of Assisi chapel - what a beautiful little church for a beautiful saint. Thanks again for your organisation and trip Craig and thank Shyam and your other guides - they were great and the work you have done over the years to create your network has really paid off”
