We've been meaning to write you for a week now. We absolutely loved the trip you put together in India - It was 100% wonderful. All the guides, driver and personnel were great and the itinerary was perfect. The hotels were great each tour was interesting. Thank you so much!
We had an incredible experience and really appreciate all the details you worked out for us. We would love to come back! And we will definitely recommend you to our friends.
What is Itinerary #2--given what we've seen already--so we can start to think about it?
We have two suggestions for your future guests:
1) Tell everyone (or at least the women) to read "A Princess Remembers" before arriving in Jaipur and staying at the Rambagh. I happened to finish the book the morning we arrived in Jaipur which made the experience even more incredible.
2) At the Avanda spa - write in the itinerary not to miss the excursion to Ganga Aarti in Rishikesh- we decided last minute to go and it was one of the highlights of the trip.
Thank you thank you - We look forward to hearing about trip #2!
