On behalf of the Bren's and myself I would like to thank you very much for arranging our 3-4 week programs in India in February/March 2009. Your programming and arrangements went off without a hitch, a wonderful thing for India. The accommodation (4 & 5 star) and transport (car, train and plane) arrangements were well selected, on time and comfortable. As we chose not to have local guides we also found the English speaking drivers very helpful. The highlights for the Bren's were Varanasi, the Taj Mahal and the Alsisar Haveli Hotel (in Jaipur). As this was my 9th visit to India, my additional highlights were the Attari/Wagah Border closing ceremony and Mumbai. We would recommend Reju Jacob and Insights 2 India to anyone considering travel to India and wanting a tailor made tour. We simply listed the features and timing what we wanted and Jacob did the arranging and purchasing. His tolerance to our changes and additional requests was appreciated, especially as it was all done by email. Unfortunately we had 4 withdrawals in the weeks leading up to the tour, but refunds were readily processed and returned to Australia without hesitation.
I first travelled with Reju and the team for a month in January 2007 and had a fantastic time - nothing was too much trouble and what minor issues occured were dealt with efficiently and amicably. I returned to India to travel again with Reju and the team in February 2009 for another month with an itinerary which was, to say the least, challenging by anyone's standards. And Reju and the team delivered - having taken on an incredible challenge they ensured that I always ended up in the right place at the right time. So if you want to travel in India you should work with Reju and his team - a number of travel agents sought to to obtain my itinerary along the way!
We booked a two weeks holiday in Goa (17th January 09 to 1st February 09). Whilst there we booked a 3 night/4 day trip to Delhi, Agra, Mumbai and then back to Goa. The “internal” trip was booked through “Insights 2 India” before we left home. From the time we arrived at Delhi to the last day of the trip we were looked after marvellously by “Insights 2 India” at every step. The hotels, vehicles, drivers and guides provided at each sites were excellent and very professional. I would have no hesitation at all to recommend them to any prospective travellers to India.
I just wanted to drop you a line now that I am back in the States and alert again. This trip to India was so wonderful that I don't think words could convey how wonderful. Thank you for arranging such a trip for us. I am so glad we found you and that you gave us Rampal as our driver/protector/extra guide. He is a true Indian treasure. I would highly recommend you, your company and Rampal to anyone who wishes to see the real India.
We travelled this time all over Kerala. It was a beautiful trip with so many different aspects to enjoy. We spent an unforgetable New Years Eve at Carmelia Haven where it was COLD!! All the hotels were lovely we couldn't decide which we liked best. We felt like royalty must feel on the night on the houseboat, however the final nights by the Arabian Sea did take the prize! The high standard of accomodation for the price we paid was amazing and the trip was completely tailor made with Reju showing the utmost patience with our needs and changes.
We had a great and hassle free time in India, thanks to your organisation. We were promptly met everywhere and at all times, and the accommodation was better than expected. Also, leading up to our departure to India we found your prompt and clear response to all our queries exemplary, and the itinerary you put together, and provided, fully met our needs. We have already recommended your agency to friends also interested in visiting India sometime next year. Regards, and thank you again for the professional service you provided.
