Feedback from Tour guests:

“I think it was a very well organised trip with a diverse itinerary. It was the quality of the itinerary that drew my attention to the trip in the first place. I also think the quality of the trip notes was a professional touch. The update that was provided prior to departure was also nice for those of us who like to be aware of the details. The level of organisation that was done before the trip showed with everything flowing as smoothly as can be expected in a country like India. Even when our flights were cancelled plans were changed so that everything fell into place. Our guides along the way did a great job of showing us their piece of India. Especially Sunil and Dr Danny, who couldn’t do enough for us. The accommodation and food were wonderful and I think the trip provided value for money. Thank you for inviting me on what was a trip of a lifetime with a group of friends who soon all became family!” Elise

“I had a fabulous time and would love to travel with you and Muktibodha again.” Atmakripa-Karen

“I would give 10/10 on all the items. It was a fantastic trip. What might have been a daunting trip to India to plan on my own, your organisation made accessible and thoroughly enjoyable. You were very accommodating with my special requests. The tour guides in Delhi and Agra were spectacular. You and Mukti have found a great network of local people to trust with the group, and even when things appeared to get a little chaotic everything always worked out wonderfully! Overall I wouldn’t change anything about the itinerary.” Erin
