Tour companies

We recently came back from 14 days in Rajasthan. It had been a lifelong dream to visit India but I was overwhelmed with where to begin. As I was browsing on Tripadvisor, I came upon several posts about a tour company called Indian Excursions. I contacted them and the very next day, we began a back and forth email correspondence with Maddie. She was very efficient, thoughtful and precise. She put together a fabulous trip for us in the high-end style which we wanted. We scheduled a car and driver with a guide in every city we visited. Within two weeks we had booked flights, had our vaccinations and our visas. We finalized our tour agreement with them and made our payment to them in advance. We arrived in the wee hours of the morning and were met by Shiv at the airport with car and driver. They promptly deposited us at our hotel, handed us our local cell and thereafter everything went like clockwork. Shiv was on the other end of the phone 24/7. Our driver, Sanjay, was very kind and treated us like family - he was always on hand if we needed to go somewhere. We usually plan our own trips and in all honesty, it is hard to let go of the control and allow someone else to figure it out but hands down, the most amazing planning and organization that I could have dreamed of.

Our experience with Indian Excursions Co. left us feeling that a genie had granted our impossible request. As two couples, long standing friends, we contacted Indian Excursions requesting to see as much of India as we could in 20 days. With efficiency and a sympathetic understanding of what we were looking for we were presented with an itinerary that took us on a tour of Rajasthan, over to Varanassi and then to Southern India to Cochin and up to Munnar. We stayed in wonderful Heritage Hotels which gave us a real feeling of being in India and had guides whose local knowledge and willingness to help enabled us to get the most out of every visit. Drivers (especially Kushi Ram) who anticipated our needs and provided water, snacks, sweets, damp hand towels and hand sanitizer, making the trip and occasional long journey restful and pleasurable. We visited palaces, temples, rivers, lakes, towns and rural communities. No request we made was too much to handle for this amazing company, everything was handled smoothly, courteously and speedily. We cannot recommend them highly enough and if anyone reading this post is thinking of a trip to India, please contact Madeleine or Shiv, they really do manage to perform miracles. Just tell them exactly what you are looking for and wait for the magic to begin.
