From my first communication with Sheesh, he has been responsive, cooperative and provided a very itinerary, accommodation, sightseeing and ground staff.
He also handled our early enforced end to our trip with extreme professionalism and sensitivity to our particular situation.
I unreservedly recommend Sheesh and Hidden Secrets as very professional and capable in providing you with an itinerary that suits your objectives in visiting India.

I travelled to India in December as part of a tour group, and while I was so excited to explore India, I was a bit nervous to travel somewhere so far away and outside of my comfort zone. However, as soon as I was greeted by Sheesh at the airport, all of my nerves disappeared. He was warm and accommodating, despite the fact that my pick-up was in the middle of the night.

As soon as we got onto the bus on day 1 of the tour, Sheesh handed us printouts of a very well-thought out itinerary. Sheesh had the whole trip planned down to the smallest details, and every site, restaurant, and hotel he took us to was wonderful. Sheesh was not only incredibly enjoyable to be around, but he was constantly educating us about what we were seeing and about the culture.

Sheesh is an extremely patient, knowledgable, organized, and thoughtful tour guide and he was such a joy to be around during our tour. I was so grateful to have him as my tour guide, I could not imagine having a better experience. I highly recommend Sheesh and Hidden Treasures of India to anyone traveling to India!

My partner and I wanted to bring my parents to Rajasthan and needed a reliable tour group to make the necessary arrangements so that the trip could be as comfortable and seamless as possible at a reasonable cost. We chanced upon HDI when doing our online research and thought that HDI offered greater value for money than other alternatives. During our correspondences with Sheesh, we found him to be patient, knowledgeable and approachable and decided to proceed with his tour. Everything was well-arranged with minimal hiccups, local guides in each city were engaged to keep costs low and we had the freedom to choose our food menus at each restaurant. If you want to stretch your dollar in India but still need an experienced tour operator to take you to less accessible gems, don’t hesitate to go with Sheesh and HDI.

A number of years ago I came to India knowing I wanted to make a textile tour of Gujurat. I researched what I thought I wanted to see and gave this information to Sheesh. He studied it and then came up with a route and an amazing collection of unique places to stay like a Maharaja's hunting lodge and a tent on the Arabian Sea. To support this he provided me with a car and driver which was essential for many of the out of the way places I went and local language inquiries. I have since recommended Sheesh and Hidden Treasures to others. He is passionate on offering the best at a very reasonable price and I count him as a friend.

Our first trip with Hidden Treasures was organized by a friend (Southern India, pre covid) and we had an amazing experience. Then came covid and all travel stopped. We wanted to experience Northern India and were looking at tours online when a friend who was on the South India tour told us she had used Hidden Treasures for a private tour of Indian textiles and gave us contact info. Tours are OK but we wanted something more . We wanted the major cities as well as rural areas and wild life safaris (tigers) on our own schedule. After much discussion we contacted Mr. Sheesh Moondh, founder of Hidden Treasures of India. We gave him an outline of what we had in mind and length of time we had available . The result was a detailed 55 day itinerary with private driver, 3 star plus Heritage hotels , guides and entry fees as needed. I realize our itinerary is much longer than most but we were traveling half way around the world and at our ages had more memories to reflect on that trips to plan for. It was a wonderful decision on our part!! From airport pick up to drop off every day was an adventure. Not traveling with a group meant we had flexibility to skip or devote more time to an activity . Our driver was amazing as he was intimately familiar with all the towns and routes on our journey and would suggest eating stops with excellent food that the tour busses or van travelers would by pass. In the crowded cities, where driving is as much an art form as a skill we enjoyed being the recipients of his expertise. He found ATM's when needed as well as out of the way shops for exploring souvenirs. Mr. Moondh definitely hires the best drivers.
For an amazing adventure, long or short, filled with precious memories we highly recommend Hidden Treasures of India. Sheesh Moondh is easy to work with and provides 5-star service.

p.s. We returned with some wonderful tiger photos.

Always the best. Sheesh spent time with us despite the birth of his and Anitha's baby girl. Each year we refine and improve and certainly we will move hotels and suppliers who gave us bad service. But Sheesh and his team were brilliant.
The most amazing service and support. Go Sheesh moondh. You rock. No other local trip, and I have been on them, compares.

I've been returning to India over and over again during these past fifty (!) years and have traveled with a number of organizations: American, British and Indian. By far the best of these is "Hidden Treasures of India," which I've now worked with on at least a half dozen occasions. My latest itinerary involved a month spent entirely within the state of Himachal Pradesh, of which I'd seen only a small portion in the past (i.e., on the way back from Ladakh). I was determined to see quite a number of remote, mostly untouristed locations and to spend some time in the town of Kullu during its annual Dusshera celebration. I managed to get to every one of those destinations thanks to Sheesh having spent a great deal of time organizing the route and the hotels and providing me with an absolutely brilliant driver (some of those roads seemed particularly difficult to negotiate). It was a great trip- better even than I had hoped for. Needless to say, I'll be traveling with Hidden Treasures again in the near future. I've learned after 20 or so visits, that not seeing more of India is unthinkable- as is spending my time there with any company other "Hidden Treasures."

Two weeks of sensual overload. Colours, flavours, aromas, noises, new experiences and antiquity all rolled in to one fabulous holiday. The trip was superbly organised by Sheesh Moondh and his team. Air-conditioned transport, hotels, guides, porters, tips and local tours all happened like clockwork. Real value too. This is the only way to do it!

This trip was scheduled in 2019 for ~ a three-week visit and was planned with Sheesh Moondh, the founder of Hidden treasures. Then COVID hit. Every year I thought this was the year, and finally, it was. Sheesh reached out periodically through this terrible global time. I have no words to describe the adventures this itinerary gave us, from making us feel SAFE with excellent 5-star accommodations and fabulous informed guides. On landing, we were greeted by a company representative, Jaspal Singh, and a driver in New Delhi. Jaspal checked us into the Claridges and explained the morning program. This set the tone for the complete trip. Every night I could not believe what I had seen, and every morning what adventures awaited for that day, from visiting temples to riding elephants and going on safari looking for tigers. This trip could not have been any better and met all expectations. I highly recommend Hidden Treasures and am so glad I decided to do a private tour with a driver and a guide. I saw other tour groups in the hotels looking frazzled, but not me.

This was my first time in India and I couldn't have been happier with the services of Hidden Treasures of India. I used them in both Jaipur and Delhi and they provided top-notch guides that were extremely knowledgeable about the culture and history of the country and the sites we visited, but what blew me away was their ability to answer even the random questions that we had about events and places (probably because they both had studied history!). I can definitely recommend Rajesh Pandesar, and Hemant (Delhi). Further, the drivers were very professional, the vehicles were clean and had great AC. I would recommend this service to anyone who wants a great experience and it was well worth the money.
