I just wanted to say, thank you very much for your tour, I really enjoyed it and will be recommending it to my Colleagues when they visit Delhi
I really loved the tour of Kerala. You choice of hotels was really good. It was one of most rejuvenating journeys I ever had. The food was different and interesting!
I wanted to say a big thank you to you for your efforts in providing an excellent value for money trip to Delhi and Agra. We saw so much in such a short time, which was exactly what we wanted out of the experience. Many thanks also for accompanying us on Saturday around Delhi. It was fantastic getting your insight into the MANY sights of Delhi. The tour to Agra, the Taj Mahal and Fatehpur Sikri on Sunday was fantastic too
Thank you for arranging the trip to Rajasthan. The driver was really helpful. Since it was our first time in India, he assisted us very well. I recommend the hotel in Udaipur…lovely place! See you next year!
I travel to India, for personal holidays and work as well. I had used their services before; when traveling with elderly parents, and the accommodation and transport they arranged was fabulous (I was surprised how they could give me such good rates for hotels. This March, I requested them to help me organise my work travel and used them for a personal holiday (also including transport - chauffeur-driven SUV) too. Thank you Sutra Voyages, and specially Subhransu Pal, for not only sparing me the stress of organising holidays (and finalising travel plans) but also making my Indian holidays so comfortable and memorable! :-) It's great to know that I can always fall back on you guys for a fab holiday in India! Your eye to detail, punctuality and immediate intervention to sort out any issues is highly appreciated. Best wishes and big thank you!
