What our clients are saying about their journeys through India
“The trip was an enormous success.”
The trip was an enormous success on every level and was hugely enjoyable, the memories of which will always stay with me. I loved every second of the journey, and Explore were very efficient in organising a replacement flight home for me after the problems with Jet airways, including booking me into a lounge at Doha airport for an 8 hour layover. Many thanks for that courtesy. (Review provided by Explore Worldwide.)
“Great trip through Northern India”
We experienced a great trip through Northern India, with so many highlights it is too hard to mention any one as a standout. The Taj Mahal was a wonderful sight at sunrise followed by the Agra Fort. The forts were amazing and the Palaces were an insight as to how the rich lived years ago. The Ancient Agrasen Ki Baoli as well was a real surprise along with the jeep ride to the desert tribe. We loved Udaipur, it was our favourite city with all the lakes.
“Memorable for all the right reasons.”
Because of the nature of the country and the heat, this could have been a very tough trip, but Abhay's knowledge, humour, style and ability made it memorable for all the right reasons. (Review provided by Explore Worldwide.)
“Really good tour.”
Really good tour with sufficient space for recovery when sick, respite from heat or additional visits if required. Least enjoyed Delhi and Delhi hotel but everything else was excellent. Please give more advice and information for early arrivals as they are on their own and advise explorers to exchange some money at the airport if not provided at the hotel.
