We had the most amazing trip to India. Our concierge Alok met us at Mumbai airport and after that everything was just perfect. We were given a phone with WiFi with a hotspot, so we could keep in touch if needed, this was a really nice idea and really made the experience feel all that more personal. In another personal and impromptu moment, Alok even organised a surprise cake for our 42nd wedding anniversary, this was so unexpected and really added to the personal experience. The trip included the service of having Alok personally follow us throughout the entire trip from arrival in Mumbai right through to our departure in Delhi and this gave us the peace of mind for the safety and comfort one would otherwise be very hard to find when exploring a country unknown to us.
All the guides were informative, particularly the guide we had in Kochi who not only knew the history of the area but also told us very interesting facts about the flora and fauna.
The accommodation was more than up to standard and we particularly loved Maidens Hotel which was grand in a colonial way and extremely comfortable, an experience that will last for a long time to come. The one hotel in Jaipur was not up to standard but this didn’t spoil our holiday, the staff were very, if not over attentive but all that was really needed was to keep the place clean and hygienic. We mentioned this to Alok who we have every confidence will sort out for future tours.
All the guides and drivers were polite, respectful, and friendly, even to the extent of making the driver available to take us to a restaurant and waiting until we had finished our meal.
We, when all said and done, had an absolutely amazing holiday which will stay in our memories forever. It gave us just a solid taste of India and we look forward to returning to explore in more detail in the future.
Thank you for running such a professional and classy service and for making our first ever India trip a lifetime experience that we will treasure forever!
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this trip with Ravishing India to anyone.
