    I loved India. The people were wonderful, and the countryside and cities interesting and incredibly colorful. The food was amazing.

    We were thrilled with the trip and impressed with your ability to craft a perfect itinerary. The staff in general was excellent and very professional. We particularly liked our driver Manoj who watched over us like a mother hen and drove most skillfully. In sum, we are in awe of India and of your organization; I have already recommended you to several friends and will continue to do so.
