  • I have been intending to write to give feedback as I wanted to thank you for a great trip. Firstly may I say how impressed I was that from start to end you were very considerate to my requests and the flexibility you showed when I made a last minute request to change my itinerary was greatly appreciated. Secondly my driver Jaipal was courteous, helpful and whilst not a widely experienced birdwatcher, he sought to assist with finding many birds and indeed did successfully point several out for me. He was prompt and reliable and his driving ability and artful negotiation of the crazy Indian traffic impressed me and quickly put me at ease. My bird guides were terrific, very knowledgeable and experienced that undoubtedly enhanced my birdwatching experience. You may well be aware that prior to contacting you I was in negotiation with Sunil as he came highly recommended. However, as he could not cover all my trip he suggested I contact you as so I was so pleased when I discovered that he was to be my guide in the Himalaya part of the trip. Delver was also very skilled and ensured that I saw as many birds as possible. The guide in Agra was helpful and informative and worked conscientiously to ensure I enjoyed my visit to the cultural sites acquired the maximum from my time there. I was impressed with all guides and would have no hesitation in using them again. In my many travels I have experienced good and bad guides and the guides that you arranged are clearly for me some of the best that I have had, thank you. In respect of accommodation, I was greatly impressed with Kaffal House/ Jungle Lore in Pangot. Staff were very helpful and amenable, the food fantastic and the location ideal. I could easily have spent more time here. The Mapple Hermitage Hotel in Sattal was nice but not as good as Kaffal House and I guess perhaps I had been spoiled with my Pangot experience! The food in all hotels and accommodation was superb and I enjoyed the meals which were varied and plentiful, sometimes too plentiful as I had put on a little weight!! Overall I enjoyed my trip and was able to focus on my birdwatching, confident in the knowledge that all other aspects such as transport, organisation, accommodation etc were well taken care of. I thank you again for a truly wonderful trip and I have no hesitation in recommending you to other people. I am seriously considering returning to India, perhaps to visit the north east corner within the next 18 months if possible and so I am likely to be communicating with you again soon.

  • Thank you so much for arranging our trip to India. It was simply a fantastic journey in every way. Your logistical planning and support staff are outstanding. Every place that we stayed was great, and we really enjoyed the variety of lodges and hotels. Of course the food was delicious…..everywhere. Thanks so much for the upgrade to the Ranthambore Kothi. It is a lovely place with superb service. One of the things that we were very impressed by was how nice and quiet it was every might at every lodge and hotel. After long days in the field, it’s very relaxing to have a nice quiet place at the end of the day. We saw about 340 species of birds and 21 species of mammal, including a tiger and a leopard. We greatly enjoyed the scenery and especially the rich culture of India.
