My stay at the Wild Mahseer in Assam was very special. Great hospitality, beautiful lodgings and interesting environmental projects. (more)Liz Mcmanus
I have told the vacation provider that they do a great job . (more)Joel Montague
The most exciting part was not on the original programme. We asked Rajat to give us somewhat more nature and less culture. He arranged for us to spend a day and two nights in a resort on the Kabini Lake, across from the Nagarhole National Park. On a boat safari at dusk, amidst myriad birds and beasts, we saw a male tiger emerging muddily from the river, slinking into the jungle. (more)Robin Fox
Cycling vacation in the Maikal Hills, Central India
From
Rupee85,000

Memorable parts? My wife and I went on this trip with our 17 year-old son. Even as seasoned travelers to India, we would never have been able to do this trip on our own because this part of central India really doesn't have much tourist/traveler infrastructure. Cycling from village to village was absolutely fantastic. Our wonderful guide, Saurabh, based in Raipur, was not only brilliantly organised and wonderfully knowledgeable about wildlife, architure, people, plants, birds, customs etc.... (more)Jonathan Drori

From
1,700
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Every day we did something new and our hosts Saurabh and later, Sunny, always had a surprise in store! Though it's hard to choose one particular part (because the entire experience was amazing), the memories that will always stay with us - without needing to look at the photos - were the day-to-day interactions and chance meetings that we were fortunate to have with the local people. From watching people go about their daily business, to joining in their celebrations, we... (more)Heidi Fuller

5 stars all round. The vacation was so unique .......... busy, relaxing, fun, massively interesting and a huge privilege. (more)Claire Martin
Highlights have to be the Puri ceremony at the temple at Bhoramdeo (not for the feint hearted). The abundance of amazing home cooked, freshly prepared, organic food. The local market at Neur, which was beautifully vibrant and colourful. The train ride was a great experience...it was all fabulous! (more)Rosy Everitt

Amazing, we would love to go back! (more)Vaughn Lewis

From

Memorable parts? Every day of my trip was exciting and memorable. It was a truly wonderful experience to explore rural Chattisgargh with a seamlessly tailored vacation. I felt I made friends every step of the way and a part of me has stayed with a wish to return. At Bhoramdeo jungle retreat each day felt magically like two as time seemed to stretch effortlessly to accommodate an activity of our choice; maybe visiting the local home or the sewing school in the morning and another, maybe a...

It was too short - only 7 days- due to our work commitments. However we both agreed it was one of the best, most authentic trips we have taken, and we have both travelled extensively. So I would rate it as 'excellent'. (more)Patti Wallace

The highlight was getting to Nagaland... Really very organised as it was also last minute in India! I had my wise list of what I wanted to see, and I saw it all and more. (more)Ricky Patel
Overall the most memorable part will be the warm welcome and friendliness of all the people we met. Seeing the tigers in Kaziranga National Park, meeting the retired head hunters in the Konyak villages and lunch in a traditional Ao hut at Moponchuket were also wonderful. (more)Terry Chambers
Ladakh cultural tour, India
From
899
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The most memorable part of the vacation would've been the experiences from visiting some of the Buddhist monasteries. The sense of calm and the quiet, friendly welcome extended in some of these beautiful oases perched amongst rugged mountains was at times overwhelming - in a very good way! The most exciting would have to be the travel on some of the roads, especially up over the Khardung-La. If a bit funny about heights, look out the other window... Tips? We went 'off...

From

The most exciting part of the vacation was traveling on the overnight train and the many opportunities we had to meet local people and glimpse a little of what their lives are like. I must also add the bustle and colour of the camel fair and the friendliness of everyone we met. (more)Avril Vallance
Bhopal Singh is undoubtedly the best guide I have had on trips to India. He actually knows the history as well as the culture, habits, etc...Excellent. (more)Nancy Hayward

From

Memorable parts? The dramatic mountain scenery on the pass from Leh over to the Nubra valley. And the lakes at Srinagar. Tips? Be prepared for different temperatures and aware of the effect of the high altitude on your wellbeing. Local benefits? Yes with the tour's use of local guides, drivers etc and the responsible attitude to ensuring that no debris was left behind on any sites. Overall rating? This was a trip of a lifetime for me as I had wanted to visit this area... (more)Irene Nicoll
