Lia Johnson – was given a gift by her grandparents – a tour of India in November 2018
Dear Yasin,Thank you very much for the wonderful surprise. The day of the surprise we went the very kind persons house and she took my measurements then we went back to their house and the lady gave me a beautiful dress and she put a red dot on my head which I think is called a bindi but I’m not sure and then she drew a beautiful henna on my hand ,it was a flower with different layers sort of thing and at the end she gave me a glass bird but on the way back to the hotel I broke it so the next day the husband very kindly brought me 2 more birds and the birds were like whistles except for when you put them in water they make a bird noise. One was a yellow bird and the other one was a chicken. When I got back home in Lanzarote I wore the dress that the lady gave me out to a restaurant and we got the little girl some English books one was The Stickman and the other one was the Gruffalo. I love India because its so different to other places and I love that there are cows, bulls and pigs wandering about in the streets and the monkeys jumping around on the wires. I loved the Taj Mahal and the golden temple and to think that one man would put all that effort into building the Taj Mahal is just mind blowing and at the Golden Temple its amazing that 100,000 people go there every day. I also liked how 99% of the people that I met in India are really kind no matter what. Everyone in Dungarpur stared at us like we were famous. Thank you very much for making my holiday so special, I will never forget it. Lia

Hi Yasin,Thank you, once again, for a very memorable holiday. As always it ran like clockwork which made the whole experience especially enjoyable. Lia had a wonderful time from the Taj Mahal and Golden Temple to elephants, monkeys and chipmunks. She was thrilled with her surprise and the family who carried it out were lovely. Than you so much again for the personal attention, Kind Regards,

Finally got around to writing to thank you for the most amazing trip. Everything, and I mean everything, was spot on. The hotels, flights and transportation was just right. Everyone was were they were supposed to be, on time and very welcoming. All the guides were knowledgeable and made sure we were able to cross the road when required, which in India is not easy. Shimla - Two train journeys to get their, both on time and great fun - particularly the Himalayan Queen from Kalka to Shimla. Amritsar - Golden Temple was the most amazing experience - we went twice once in the morning and then later at night. There was a celebration of some kind so the Golden Temple was lit up at night with a firework display - never seen anything like it. We also ate at the temple - what an experience. Agra - Taj Mahal - Fantastic from the outside but rather disappointing inside, the rooms are completely empty but worth the visit. I will never forget the traffic, all of our drivers were fantastic - how we didn't bump into tuk-tuks; rickshaws; buses, cows, etc. is beyond me. My wife is quite a nervous traveller particularly in busy traffic and steep roads but not on this occasion. Particular mention must be made of Manoj - our main driver who was with us for most of the trip - he was wonderful. Could not do enough for us, found us good restaurants to eat in, ATM's when we needed some cash, shops when we were looking for gifts - what a star he is. Thank you Yasin, for arranging it - we will never forget it.

“I travelled to India with my art and architecture group to North India and Central India. I cannot begin to tell you how amazing our trip was. From the impromptu mehndi competition on a free evening, to a complementary talk by a Delhi historian arranged by Indus, our long trip was spectacular. What made our trip effortless and special was the Spanish speaking escort chosen by Indus, who within a span of two weeks became a dear friend. We will cherish the memories forever.”

“Today our wonderful trip to India ended and we are back in Belgium. We look back with the most beautiful memories and experiences. Everything was very well organized and the people we met and our guides were very friendly and helpful. Also a special thanks to our drivers Rana in the north and Bidju in the south. They drove us safely through the hectic traffic. We trusted them completely and could rely on them if needed. We will recommend Indus to our friends and in the future we will surely book another trip with your agency. India is in our hearts!”

Mr. Robert & Mrs. Anne Nicolle travelled with Indus Discoveries DMC on their tour to the Royal Rajasthan (Udaipur, Bundi, and Jodhpur). Having returned from the trip back home, they said that they were very pleased with all the arrangements, which worked perfectly and made it a memorable tour for them. They appreciated the excellent services of our partners Mr. Luvkush of Four Season in Udaipur and Mr. Dhir Singh of Rajasthan Venture & Tours in Jodhpur. "We were looked after very well and received a warm welcome - everywhere we went in Rajasthan. Thank you Indus Discoveries for making this one of the best trips of our lives."

“Our mutual clients – “Mr. Stewart Roberts & Mrs. Sharon Roberts” travelled with Indus as the DMC to the Golden Triangle (Delhi, Agra, Jaipur) and also visited Goa. Having returned from the trip back home, they said that it was the best holiday that they have ever had. Everything went very smoothly and we want to thank Indus Discoveries for looking after our clients so well.”

"I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent holiday in Northern India. Our driver Mr. Dhaniram was excellent - always punctual, always in a clean car; and the Indus representatives in India were first class, looking after our every need. We stayed in some beautiful hotels, saw many wonderful sights, and enjoyed some amazing experiences. I won't hesitate to recommend your company to anyone who is interested in a tailor-made holiday in India - well done! Many thanks for ensuring our visit was trouble free and full of happy memories."

"Our trip to Rajasthan and all the travel arrangements you made for us worked perfectly. Wherever we stayed we were given a warm welcome and looked after with such kindness. Our driver, Gian Chand was excellent, not only a careful driver but full of information and insight in to Indian culture. Every hotel knew beforehand it was our 50th wedding anniversary and we received several celebratory cakes and good wishes. The places we visited were all so interesting and the guides were excellent. I particularly enjoyed the traditional crafts and demonstrations. We had a wonderful trip, thank you for all your help arranging it."

"I would like to thank the managing director of Indus Discoveries, Yasin Zargar and all his team, for their help with what could have been a serious booking problem – out of their control – with regular clients of mine while enjoying a multifaceted holiday in India. The Clients were very well looked after and impressed with the personal involvement of Yasin who managed to rejig my clients’ whole itinerary at very short notice; the clients had already arrived in India. The real test of a travel company is how it copes with an issue of this nature and in this case Indus Discoveries scored 100%."
TTG Talk, Simon Gemmell, Designer Travel (United Kingdom)
"I wanted to thank Indus Discoveries for their help in making our visit to India so special. It was absolutely perfect from start to finish. The itinerary was well put together & the hotels you booked for us were all marvellous. The representatives were all very efficient and helpful. They were always waiting for us when we arrived or made a departure and were particularly helpful at the airports. Each local guide was interesting, entertaining and full of knowledge and passion for his country and its heritage. Our driver was of the highest standard and we felt safe in his hands at all times. My husband and I would like to thank you for an excellent 30th Wedding Anniversary holiday. Your advice throughout the whole booking process was invaluable and your attention to detail first class."
