We used daytrippers last month to go to hampi, khola beach and a boat trip to see dolphins. We had no problems at all the service was excellent and we thought the prices were really good. I would definately use them again .

There are many negative posts here about Daytripper not being the company with the same level of service that used to be provided...

I've booked through them many times, over several years, and never had anything other than first-class service, at prices that main (UK-based) tour operators could match.

Would recommend highly, regardless of what some posters here suggest.

(In India, and like anywhere else for that matter, one's approach to how one deals with people in business, dictates the quality of service that results.)

Day-tripper had a lot of problems after Eddy retired and wasn't even doing the Hampi trip for a while but that was a couple of years ago and it sounds like they are now back on track

We booked the Hampi trip with an agent in Candolim as Day-tripper could not help us, it was well organised with a guide travelling with us and we had a great time, think it cost about 3800 Rps per person

Daytripper took the Hampi trip off their schedule even before Eddie retired.

We went up to book it and Eddie told us the agent had not been booking train tickets and hotels and he wasn't prepared to risk his reputation unless/until he was sure everything would run smoothly.

He also mentioned a very large compensation payout by a tour operator who'd booked their clients on the trip through the agent, found they had no seats on the train and no accommodation when they got there.

Last time we went up to the office, the Hampi trip had been reinstated.

I've always found Daytripper to be good, although it is a while since we booked anything with them.

If you do a search for 'daytripper' and sort the results by date, you'll get some more information.

We've always found John's Boat Tours to be OK.
