Thanks to Pulak for the perfectly arranged bike tour around Puri and sharing your knowledge of the area with us!! Pulak is a very relaxed though passionate guide who speaks perfectly English. If you are looking for a non-touristy discovery of Odisha's hidden gems, this is your go to your organisation!

We are just back from our second visit to the area organised by Grass Routes and it was just as good as the first. We ventured into Chattisgarrth this time, having started in Odisha. We visited lots of tribal villages and saw and photographed everyday life there as well as being treated to several traditional dance displays. We were thoroughly looked after by our driver and guide so all we had to do was enjoy the visit. We stayed in two heritage homestays which were small heritage palaces where the visit is very personal with the royal family. In both cases they will tell you all about their area and take you out and about. Claire and Pulak of Grass Routes do very well in determining what it is you want from your visit and make absolutely sure you get it - you aren't fobbed off with a fixed itinerary which doesn't suit. They also provided a very good quality vehicle and a most helpful and safe driver. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

We visited Odisha for a week towards the end of October. The Odisha highlights tour was facilitated by Grass Routes. Our experience right through the visit was very smooth, pleasant and enjoyable. The travel arrangements, hotel stays, guided visits to places of interest- all handled very capably by our guide (Mr Prassan) and our driver (Dhardu). The highlight of our trip was our visit to the majestic and awe inspiring Konark temple ruins and the secluded and peaceful lakeside stay at Chilika. We realised there was a lot more to Odisha than we knew of before this trip. Look forward to visiting again to explore the tribal heartland and the forests as well as return to Chilika to spot the annual migration of birds. Would highly recommend Grass Routes - they offer a personalised travel experience with a rich local flavour. Thanks for a great trip!

We booked a tour of some of the Odisha tribal regions through Grassroutes, and also some onward travel arrangements. From booking, to travelling, to the actual tour itself, they were fantastic. So knowledgeable, so helpful, so friendly, so professional, the list could go on! They made everything so simple and stress free. The itinerary they put together was fantastic, the guide was great and we got to see some incredible places that we wouldn't have visited without their local knowledge and expertise. I cannot recommend them enough!

In January I went on a 2 week tour of the tribal villages in the hills of Odisha and can not recommend this more. Our guide (Pulak) was very accommodating and took care of everything. He was very respectful of the villagers and had their best interest at heart. I would highly recommend using "Grass Routes Journeys" if you are planning a tour to India, especially of Odisha, since it would be difficult and irresponsible to experience the villages without a guide who knows and cares about the people that live in the region.
