I do like to organize my own holidays rather than go with large companies. I found LIH on line and read some reviews and went with them. They were excellent at selecting hotels and their Tour Guides at temples and forts etc were great. Just enough information without filling you up with too many historical facts and dates. Our driver RATAN was great and took us to good, sensibly priced, restaurants. It would have been easy for him to take us to "Posh" restaurants but we had really good meals from about £4.00 a head. Drinks generally were more than the cost of the food. We had no problems along the way, were always picked up from airports without any dramas,
All in all a "Nice" company to deal with.

We booked this family holiday to escape from freezing UK winter. The feeling was mixed.

PROS:
1. The firm did flex the itinerary to suit our needs.
2. Shyam Bir Singh: The guide in Agra was amazing and outstanding.He exactly knew how make to guests feel comfortable and his knowledge was impeccable.
3. Ratan Singh: The driver from Agra was excellent. He eased the journey for us by dropping us off at Delhi from Ranthambore as we were recovering from the trauma (anxious wait with entire holiday hanging by a thread) of delayed train (Varanasi to Agra).
4. Anjesh Chandra: The local agent in Varanasi looked after us like family, waited with us in the Varanasi train station until we were safe and on our jounery.

CONS:
1. Train delay and anxious wait: Delayed trains with some cancellation which i believe is infamous in North India and are surprised why this was not considered by Leisure India prior to finalising our itinerary. This could have avoided the unnecessary scare at Varanasi for us.
2. Delhi tour: Felt very 'rushed' and maybe should have handpicked the important ones.
3. Communication with leisure India: It was a challenge in maintaining communication with Leisure India either directly or via the local agent. This resulted in them sending a agent to collect the money from us even in spite payment been made but was unable to transact onto the agent.

For our first trip to India we chose Leisure India Holidays to coordinate our travels. This ended up being a terrific decision. Himanshu worked with us to arrange all our our hotels and flights based upon our preferences and we were able to see everything we wanted to see in a timely fashion. Our driver in India, Ashok, was wonderful and pointed out many things along the way we may have missed. WiFi in the car was a nice touch! At each stop we had well informed, punctual guides and the hotels were top notch. Just prior to our arrival in India, the government eliminated 1000 and 500 rupee notes which made access to money EXTREMELY difficult. Himanshu accepted our 1000 rupee notes as partial payment for our tour and helped us break the new 2000 rupee notes down to usable denominations. This was a life-saver! I would highly recommend LIH for personalized, economical travel to India.

We chose Leisure India Holidays to work out a personal tour for us of the Golden Triangle and followed by time in Goa. Everything was handled excellently before we arrived and this continued when we started our tour. Our driver Ashok was great - one simple but great treat was to be given a local mobile phone so we could keep in touch.
We visited Delhi Agra Jaipur Jodhpur Udaipur and Goa and had local guides in each golden triangle city. Guides were all good although we had to insist a couple of times on not going to places showing off cooperatives or craft skills or suchlike that are in reality selling spots. All flights transfers collections along with changes to itinerary were handled quickly and effectively. Happy to recommend them and I would use again if the occasion arose.

Just back from a wonderful first trip to India with Leisure India Holidays. From the moment we booked with Himanshu 6 months ago until our last day in Mumbai everytihng was superb. We changed itinery and hotels a number of times before going, all of which was not problem and speedily arranged. Our driver Hassan Singh in Delhi and area was excellent both in his driving (which has to be seen to be believed !) and his restaurant recommendations. We visited New Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Ranthambore, Goa and Mumbai in two weeks, saw everything we wanted to and stayed in some of the finest hotels in the world. All internal flight were also arranged with LIH. If booking India and do not want to pay the exorbitant charges made by UK or US agents I would highly recommend this company and am quite happy to answer any questions on our vacation.
