Mangala, Aitor and Ram Das really looked after us, the walks were stunning, and we ate so well. There are few places that are so tranquil, and we would recommend going here to disconnect and experience an amazing part of the Eastern Ghats.

I contacted Ashish and Srikant on Friday and by Sunday I was greeted at the airport as the first foreign tourist in Odisha with Alternative Tours after Covid. Ashish and Srikant both did an incredible job in challenging circumstances. The organisation and running of this solo tour were perfect from the start to the very end. My guide, Jaga, was extremely knowledgeable, hospitable, and was going out of his way to make this trip a memorable one, adjusting the itinerary to my liking. Can't recommend him highly enough! The driver, Naba, was amazing and kept us safe and the vehicle clean every day. He even organised the wrapping of a broom I bought on the way. Covid regulations were followed throughout and I felt in safe hands. I highly recommend Alternative Tours for trips to lesser known sites of Odisha and beyond, as well as for a less touristy and more community-oriented approach. As an anthropologist, I was happy to see the relation of the company to the local communities and their efforts to support them, without any pressure whatsoever to buy anything. Will definitely travel again with Alternative Tours!

I can't speak highly enough about the professionalism and service of Alternative Tours. I contacted Ashish on short notice at peak season for a solo tour. He immediately got back to me and squeezed me in! Guides and drivers were excellent, particularly the tribal guide with 18 years experience and very close ties to the tribes. I extended my itinerary toward the end of the trip, and they were again very responsive and accommodating. I highly recommend Alternative Tours for Odisha, as this was a most memorable trip.

Every detail was clear, accurate, and we had a very professional local tour guide, that was aware to our needs. We had lots of great moments with the tribes people . I happily recommand Aternative tours , as their service is top ! Thank you Ashish ! Dvori + Etty

My husband and myself just finished our tour with alternative travel. Excellent tour, perfect organization, professional guides. Ashish managed our trip in most amazing way, and we had wonderful experience visiting Varanasi, various tribes and Kanha National park. Many many thanks . Will definitely recommend to friends and family
