    Guide should talk and get everyone involved instead of just a few selected individuals. Forcing yourself into pictures does not make you a good guide, maybe to some but not everyone!

    This was a fantastic tour well organised and enjoyable. The CEO Raja was fantastic and really made the trip memorable. The country and the places visited were just beautiful The tour gave a good balance of organised activity as well as free time to explore. Bus transport was clean and modern and accommodation was good. Take my recommendation and book the tour.

    It was more than exoected I loved every minute and Suri is the best guide ever he was patient thoughtful kind organised and fun and we enjoyed his company so much there is just one thing with the aster inn as a single woman traveller I was with another couple in the tour and we were followed by 4 men in daylight which scared me maybe inkybuse mehar castle with was great . Loved toy train and express and our driver was brilliant so skilled. Not much more to say except there was 2 people on the trip who complained from day one about everything which was totally out of order and any bad review they may write must be disregarded as it is not fair. So just one last thing - Suri deserves a Gold star - miss you Suri regards Jenny theodoulou

    A very enjoyable tour covering some of the lesser visited parts of Northern India.The Golden Temple in Amritsar was spectacular, especially the colour and vibrancy of the place. Dharamshala was truly like visiting mini Tibet and Shimla felt like a European mountain town. Altogether an insight into a different side of India.
