Amazing experience travelling with a group of 60 french people to Jaipur and Agra. We had 2 french speaking guides Pramod & Raju who helped us discover the culture, monuments & history of north india. They chose excellent hotels for stay & good restaurants too! Included a dinner with a dance spectacle and a Karaoke/DJ night. Thanks to Maavalan Travels, we made an smooth and unforgettable trip with a big group!

Maavalan Travels Review In Late 2018 I traveled to India for the first time with my friend Natalie who had been several times before and had previously worked with Maavalan Travels. She felt like Kawaljeet could manage our unusual itinerary. He helped us plan a bespoke trip that made best use of our limited time in three separate areas of the country. The first week we visited Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur, including the Taj Mahal on New Year’s Eve. The Guides arranged for us were all professional, knowledgeable and likeable, I especially appreciated their patience and skill to navigate the popular and crowded tourist attractions. Our Drivers were all friendly and calm, and well experienced with hectic Indian traffic. Their vehicles were always nice, clean and comfortable. Hotels selected for us were always just as described with excellent restaurants for wary American palates. The second part of our trip was to the Buhj area of Gujarat, where we hoped to learn about the textiles, embroidery, and crafts of the region, and we wanted visit to the Rann Utsav Salt Desert Festival. This area is more rural and less accommodating for foreign travelers but that is also part of its charm and we enjoyed the experience due in large part to the itinerary, Guide and Driver provided by Kawaljeet. Our third area of travel was to the Southern region of Kerala where we were delighted to spend a few days in Fort Kochi. Our driver, who was also an excellent impromptu guide, took good care of us. We loved our Hotel, the 8th Bastion, where the room, food, and staff were so lovely that we choose to extend our stay there. The chef even gave us the recipe for the pineapple jam we loved so much. The most important take away from my experience with Maavalan Travels is that I felt they took care of us. Prior to and during the trip, Kawaljeet was always available to answer questions and help us with inevitable issues that arise when traveling. He was able to be flexible to accommodate our last minute request. He definitely has my highest recommendation and I hope to start planning my next Indian adventure with him very soon.

My wife and I had made a tour in the Golden Triangle in 2014 with Maavalan Travels (MT) and were so happy with their services that we re-contacted them for a tour from Chennai to Cochi in February 2019. We did a standard tour offered on their website with some bespoke elements, which they were happy to integrate. We found everything perfect. If there has been a minor glitch anywhere we have not noticed because the clever and friendly driver Vishnu managed to smoothen it out. All hotels were OK, comfortable Toyota Innova car was always clean and in good condition, driver perfect (even managed to get my suitcase zipper repaired for next to nothing in no time - I had already been contemplating to buy a new suitcase). All guides were there on time. Communication with Kawaljeet during the booking process and follow-up during the voyage was excellent. Any downsides ? Not all hotels initially proposed were available at the dates we needed them so there was a change or two during the booking process, usually to a hotel of a lower category. An appropriate reduction in price may need some encouragement from your side. I guess this is standard business behaviour. Some of the tour guides in Tamil Nadu spoke English at a rather non-impressive level, so their hardly understandable explanations were a bit disappointing. MT's fault ? I do not know, maybe tour guides with an appropriate level of English are just not available in these places. Would I recontact MT for another tour and recommend them to you, dear reader ? Absolutely !

From the start of our journey maavalan and the representatives displayed professionalism and total commitment to making our holiday both comfortable and memorable. Kawaljeet has always been in touch, and on call throughout our journey. At every stop we had a luxury of having a representative welcome us and take us through the program of events. Selected tour guides were excellent and well versed. Our vehicle was always clean and our driver very professional. We would highly recommend using maavalan travels

Maavalan organized our tour to India to celebrate our 40TH wedding anniversary and the planning of the trip was very well done. The staff was professional and very committed to our comfort and safety. Driving in India is an experience and sometime a scary one, our driver was very calm and we never felt in danger at any time. The highlight of our trip was The Rawla Narlai, Raas Haveli and The Taj Lake Palace. The service and food was superb and the location... We are planning to visit the South of India and will definitely contact Maavalan Travels to plan our trip.
