Guest reviews

  • While the animals, lodges, scenery, and culture were great, what really made the trip special was Jaipal and our guides – Ganesh, Bachu, and Shyam. Ganesh did a superb job in Pangot and Corbett. He is and excellent birder and showed us many nice species. Bachu did the same in Chambal. We had a lot of fun with Shyam who has great enthusiasm and knowledge. All of these guides were patient, kind, knowledgeable, and fun. But perhaps the best part of the trip was being with Jaipal. He has a unique combination of admirable qualities. He is professional, very attentive to our comfort and safety, kind, always on time, patient, and very knowledgeable of the complicated roads. We felt like we were traveling with a good friend for three weeks. We learned a lot about your beautiful country, especially that it is full of many kind, hard-working, and special people. You run a first class operation and we will recommend it to all of our traveling friends.

  • Thanks for following up on our tour to India. Although initially disappointed that we could not go to Kashmir I am very happy with the way you have handled the situation and rapidly arranged an alternative tour for us. Although we could not see all the birds we had hoped for in the areas due to the summer period we had a rather successful trip with some very good species. Furthermore, we greatly appreciated the flexibility of you and the guides to accommodate our wishes something that worked out very well. Generally, the food was great and the accommodation as well. Actually, the accommodation was for my taste to luxurious, but I guess that is actually my mistake as I did not clearly communicate my accommodation wishes (something I will do the next time I travel to India).
