I went on a 9 days trek to Goechala with Trust The Locals in May 2017. It was one of the toughest treks I ever embarked upon, but all credits to trek organisers Tapan and Roman who made the journey as comfortable as possible. Right from arranging a taxi to pick us from Bagdogra to base of the trekking camp Yuksom, to making camp arrangements at all halt sites enroute, and providing us with healthy and tasty food, the trek was extremely well organised. It was a difficult climb, made easy and pleasant by Trust The Local, who took best care of all members of the trekking group throughout. Thank you for making it a memorable Himalayan trek. I highly recommend Trust The Locals for those who are planning a trek to mountains of Sikkim.

I arrived at Yuksom as a solo traveller and didn't know what to expect as this was a first for me in many respects. But, upon arrival, Trust The Locals gave me a complete breakdown of what to anticipate. They were absolutely amazing and sorted out everything for me. A mountain climbing stick, a raincoat, a sleeping bag, a porter, and pleasant food among other things.
Although the viewpoints of Goechala trek were simply breathtaking, it was very challenging to say the least. But while the climb was tough, Tapan and Roman were so encouraging along the way. Their positive attitude and kindness sets them apart from the rest. They are reliable, easy to get In touch with and are very responsive through text/calls/e-mail.
i would highly recommend Trust The Locals as they're so thorough with every region in sikkim and the mountains in general. They took care of us like a family and made my overall experience truly unforgettable.

First trip to Sikkim and Tapan and his team of local guides (Robin and Dinesh) ensured it's a memorable one.
1. Tapan is very flexible with his tour itinerary and suggestions to ensure you get the plan of your choice.
2. The team goes extra mile so that you get the flavour of local cuisine, best sites and get to appreciate the beauty of town from the eyes of locals/insiders.
Would highly recommend 'Trust the locals' if you want an icing on your cake during your trip to this beautiful state.

We were introduced to Robin while we were already in Sikkim and things with the previous travel agency were a little off so we switched gears to Trust the Locals. Right from the get-go, the very first call for coordination on our pick up from Gangtok, until the next five days driving around Sikkim covering the beautiful terrains of Pelling, Yuksom and other untouched remote areas, and then the final drop to the Bagdogra airport, we couldn't have asked for a better partner than Robin.
He drove us around with utmost commitment, safely maneuvering through the difficult drives and weather. It was evident that he knew the areas at the back of his hand and that gave us a lot of confidence in him and bis abilities to handle any aspects related to our travel.
Apart from being a great wheel-man, he also proved to be a fantastic company with interesting and informative conversations through the long drives, making them worth a while, coholed with some great music that ensured we didn't feel a pinch of tiredness! He also introduced us to some very pleasing local sikkimese and Nepalese music which we are humming even while we are back at home! Got us some great recommendations to try local foods and a variety of it. And of course he was effeciently able to customize our sightseeing plans depending on the weather and our interests. He also very professionally navigated through our needs and requests along the journey. A very pleasant and soft spoken person!

I'd like to mention that i usually get car sick on the mountains, but those five days i didn't even feel a spec of discomfort and didn't have the need to take any motion sickness medication, and i would owe this to Robin's phenomenal driving and interactive skills! So thank you dear, Robin.. We take back a piece of Sikkim in our hearts.. And you better be ready the next time we plan our trip to North Sikkim.. We ain't going with anyone else but you!!
Wish you the best!

Thank you Trust the Locals for your wonderful team of partners and for all the great work you are doing to put Sikkim in the tourism map of India! Well done...

Excellent car and travel services, we booked an Innova crysta from them for a family of 4 adults and 3 children, the car was clean well maintained and was driven by an very friendly gentleman by the name Deepas. He was helpful, willing to cater to basic needs for our travel and very amicable as a person. He made sure we were comfortable and ensure conveniences like playing the right music or switching on the air conditioner whenever needed. Highly recommended, and a shout out for both Tapan and Deepas!

They helped us organize the trip very efficiently, given that we were unaware of a lot of things about Sikkim. The agency, driver and guide were all integral members of our trip who helped make it memorable and insightful.
Would 100% recommend opting for Trust the Locals as they are prompt, handle difficulties well and do their best in making the experience great.

We had one of the best persons to escort us around Sikkim . Our driver Bhushan was one amazing driver! Patient, friendly, careful and considerate of each one of us ( mostly senior citizens) . The way he negotiated the tricky and rough roads was a lesson in good driving! By the end of the week that he took us around we felt he was part of our family of friends. a full hundred to our wonderful driver Bhushan who made sure our trip was comfortable and complete, doing everything that was possible in the days we had! His smiling good nature will stay with us as a pleasant memory!!

I just came back from a wonderful 8 days trip to Sikkim and Darjeeling. We booked our cabs (2 Toyota Innova Crystas) from Trust the Locals Tours and Treks. I found their service a 5 star experience. All the people I communicated with were pleasant and cheerful. Mr.Tapan helped us curate our trip. His expertise and suggestion were helpful. Their customer service was the icing on the cake-available and always ready to help.
Special mention and kudos to our drivers, Deepas and Robin. They were extremely kind, friendly, polite, professional, patient and always did their best to keep us smiling and engaged. They were really flexible up to the journey date. They educated us with interesting facts and titbits aboul local life. We felt very safe. The car was clean and comfortable and we couldn't wish for a better service. Their service, and reliability, made the long journey and a memorable one. They will be my go-to person for my next trip.
