What our travellers have to say .....

For me it was a great way to explore the nearby attractions during business trip to Bangalore. Halebidu and Belur temples are amazing. I keep travelling to different cities in India for business and I am simply in love with your style of organising the quick tours which gives me so much of flexibility, freedom and at the same time they are well organised and well executed. Thanks Max for your extra work for arranging drop off for me to the airport the following morning."

We spent good time with innocent and calm elephants at your farm near Jaipur. We had elephant experience earlier in other countries but this one was the best. During the sightseeing trip our tour guide was just fantastic and his knowledge about the culture of India was great. My teen boys are already talking about coming to India with me again and enjoying such trips which gives them a different experience they never
had before. India is really incredible" !

I have returned to home after a long and hectic business trip to India. I stayed in Mumbai for quite a long time and wanted to explore some beautiful locations around. I booked a Wine tour and Dabbawala tour (Tiffin system) with your agency and though Wine trip to Nashik was close to my heart (bcos I love Indian wines LoL) but to be very honest both the trips were perfectly arranged and the drivers on both the trips
were very friendly and a great support."
