It was a great time with Holiday scout in Arunachal pradesh.
We traveled Bomdila, tawang, dirang, bumla pass,shungester lake, mandala top,some unknown treks, monasteries, shergaon and many places which are unknown,everything was incredible. Homestay, specially Dirang boutique cottage and food provided was awesome. Traveling with Dilip Da was a wonderful experience...He was always informative and enthusiastic.Will love to travel again with Holiday Scout very soon.
Regards.

We traveled on an 11-day Arunachal Itinerary with Holiday Scout and were totally blown away by the dedication of the team. The entire trip from start to finish was meticulously planned. They had excellent knowledge of the places and were able to spring surprises in the form of many offbeat and immersive experiences. They seem to know the North East like the back of their hand and are truly the best company to travel with in the North East. We also love that they are focused on developing sustainable and ecofriendly tourism.

Sange was fantastic and customized our 11 day Arunachal Pradesh tour including some offbeat places to make it a very enjoyable and informative trip. The home stays he arranged provided not just a very comfortable stay but also the opportunity to meet some local families; and we thoroughly enjoyed the local cuisine!!
The guides he arranged - in Dirang and Tawang - provided a historical and cultural context to the sights and places, making it a very meaningful experience.
Transportation very comfortable and our driver, Tsering knew the backroads and ensured a very safe and enjoyable journey. Thank you, Sange,

Extremely happy with the way Holiday scout planned our trip to Arunachal/Tawang in April 2022.

Planning - We started feeling confident in Sange with the way he detailed our itinerary. Our comfort and preferences were well taken care of throughout the 9days trip.

Drive - Kudos to Deepak da for his mature and sensible driving on the hilly terrains as well as for keeping his car super tidy. Arunachal has some really well maintained roads, despite the altitude. And of course, you’ll find postcard pretty landscapes throughout.

Stay - we were a bit hesitant about homestays being basic, before we arrived. However not only were the homestays well equipped with the relevant facilities, the care and hospitality of the local folks (something that holiday scout rightly promotes) filled our hearts with warmth and gave us the most beautiful memories!

Food - nice basic homely food at stays. The restaurant scene out there in the hills is picking up gradually, hence a handful of cafes/restaurants might offer change for your taste buds. If interested, plan these in advance.

Would definitely recommend Holiday Scout, and be happy to use their services whenever I plan my next trip to the North East.

North East is beautiful geography , with old Buddhist monasteries. Plus, I am a proud Indian to see the war memorials and pay homage to war heroes. The good thing about Holiday Scout is the guides and driver. At Kaziranga safari and Bum La trips our guides had excellent knowledge. Our driver Mr Deepak is very skilled and experienced to drive in very foggy and bad road conditions. Mr Senge of Holiday Scout makes his money by choosing low budget middle of nowhere homestays and taking good money from us. In Cherrapunji, our driver was panicking while driving through dark, no road terrain to reach our homestay. In Shergaon was the worst, Senge arranged our stay at a creepy place with washrooms outside in the BALCONY !!! My Dad had to come with me or mom when we used washroom. Holiday Scout survives ONLY because North East India is beautiful. Jai Hind.

If you are travilling to NE, and you really are a person who likes not just to travel but to know and experience local culture, food, drinks, villages, offbeat places. . Holiday scout is the best choice. Sange is an amazing guy and he personally takes interest in tailoring your tour memorable. 3 Cheers to holiday scout.

Loved my trip to Arunachal with Holidayscout. As a frequent traveler, I usually go solo and plan my own travels. However Arunachal is a bit tricky with permits and rules and I didn't want to step on any toes so decided to go with Sange or Holidayscout.
It was the best decision ever. Our ten days in Arunachal covering Bomdilla, Dirang , Tawang and Shergaon were blissfully spent knowing there will be zero hassles traveling WITH locals. We got to try several things which we couldn't on our own - like partying with locals, checking out monastary kitchens, donating to old age homes/schools... Traveling deeper and with a purpose. That's how all your trips with them will be, no doubt they are the best in North east. I would highly recommend them to anyone planning to head to NE.

Holiday Scout is a run by a local person from Arunachal Pradesh. Mr.Sange who runs this, knows the local area, local hotels, local homestays very well.
We are a family of 3 who visited this amazing state in nature's lap.

Our trip was Guwahati > Bomdila > Dirang > Tawang > Bomdila > Guwahati.

Bomdila: Homestay was government sponsored (Pradhan Mantri Paryarak yojana) beneficiary. It was comfortable stay for family of 2. Hot water was easily provided. Food provided by local team was lovely. Zamumo was very good care taker.
We loved the flowers and plants they had.

Dirang - Gonpalok Homestay: This is a comfortable homestay with spacious big room. Easily accommodates 3 or 4 members. Food was fine. Do try the local Kiwi wine
(try to get Dirang Boutique Cottage if available)
Riverside lunch was arranged for our family. And we loved the experience.

Tawang - Tenzin Guest House. Comfortable stay.
Bumla Pass, Tsangestar Lake, PTSO lake - no words to describe these points. Beautifully maintained and facilities provided by Indian Army. Hats Off to them.

A good driver is a must in this region. someone who is local and who communicates well with all border checkposts. Mr.Chetry was our driver and is 28 years experienced veteran who is superb.

Indian Armed Forces are polite and helpful. RESPECT for them has increased after this trip.

Tips:
** If WIFI is a must for you, make clear your requirement at the beginning. Not all hotels/homestays offer wifi facility
** If western toilet is a must for you, make it clear before the bookings. Many hotels have Indian toilets.
** If you get travel sick, keep you medical kit ready. Arunachal Pradesh has long distances and it is not easy for people with motion sickness
** Ensure your permits are secured with you in advance. Ensure permits cover all the places you agreed upon.

My holiday hasn't even began and the Holiday Scout painted a very different picture of Arunachal Pradesh for me than I have heard. After reading great reviews about them, especially for woman solo travellers, I decided to get in touch with them. But, instead of helping me out, all they told me was, "solo traveller is expensive. If you wish to book with us, you can or else find someone else". And, while I was contemplating, was requesting him to speak slowly and was in middle of a sentence, the man talking to me decided to cut the call on my face. Clearly I wasn't worth their time and energy. Good luck to whoever decided to book them.
