Dear Rajiv,
We wish to thank you for arranging a pleasant 'Tailor made program' to do the Multi city trip during Nov - Dec 2013. The hotel accommodation in each city was congenial except the location of hotel in Bangalore was remote from any shops (small and large) .The driver service at Bombay and Bangalore were commendable. Unfortunately the driver at Aurangabad could not communicate at all in English, but he was quite a friendly young lad.

We thank you again for arranging this pleasant program.

kind regards

Hello Rajiv,
This is just a quick note to tell you we have now arrived back home from a fantastic holiday in India. I would like to thank you for all you hard work in organising our wonderful tour Delhi/Agra/Jaipur.
Everything was planned and executed wonderfully. Sanjay our driver was fantastic, he was very professional and knew the roads well. Please pass on our special thanks to Sanjay as I always felt perfectly safe him at the wheel. I must not forget to thank our Agra guide Raju. It was good to have a knowledgeable and particularly friendly guide in Agra, he provided a very good guided tour around Taj Mahal.

The quality of the hotel accommodation for the Jaipur Rama is excellent Our only disappointment and complaint would be the first day's hotel (Connaught) in Delhi which was not up to the quality level of the other accommodations. We really want to make an official complaint about the hotel and false advertising as I don’t want any other people to get cheated. However, it all worked out extremely well with help of our Delhi guide Chodi and we are very happy with the hotel, Royal Plaza - the food and service was excellent, beautiful and very comfortable. The hotel in Agra was a little basic but it is okay.

On a positive note, Vardhman Vacations more than exceeded our expectations and we had a memorable time. We will definitely recommend and use your company again!.
Thanks for all your work and help.

Take care and wishing you all the best.

Hello,

I had an excellent tour experience. My driver, Sanjay, was great! He was always on time and waiting when he said he would be and was always willing to stop for me to take a photo or to point out something of interest. I had an excellent time on all of the city tours and the tour guides were very informative and helpful. I was happy with the hotels and the suggestions for shops and shows that everyone gave me.

I would definitely recommend your group to any of my family and friends looking to travel to India.

Thank you again for all of your help,

Hi Rajiv,

Sorry for the delayed reply, I was away on business & came back this week end.

Overall the arrangements you made for us was good & we had a good time & was able to visit places we wanted.

The feedback,

Positive
(1) Airport pickup & drop off was prompt & excellent.

(2) The Hotels were very good.

(3) Drivers also good, didn't not request any tip at all, but we were very generous.

(4) The guides were good as well in all places.

Issues

(1) We should have spent another day in Delhi to visit few other places, which we could not make it. We only had half a day in Delhi. This is not your fault, we should have planned as well.

(2) The drivers in North India cannot speak much English, we expected that anyway.

Negative

(1) The vehicle provided for golden triangle trip & in Arungabad is a bit old & the travel was a bit uncomfortable.


Thanks for your assistance Rajiv.

Another group of our friends planning a trip to North India in April & I have recommended your service.

I will be in touch with you when their travel dates are finalised.

Thanks again

Dear Rajiv Bhai,
Thanks a lot !!

It was an excellent tour overall Journey

Upgrading our car from Indica to Innova at no extra cost turned out to be a boon as far as comfort was concerned …

Special compliments for Sanjayji’s safe driving and also guiding us throughout the tour.

All the hotels were nice but Harasar Haveli and Rajmandir Fort could easily be picked up as one of the best in terms of food and hospitality.

As for facilities, Gold Leaf was arguably the best !!

It was indeed a nice experience with you guys and we would surely recommend ‘Vardhman’ to our friends and relatives.

Next year around the same time, we have planned Leh / Ladakh.

We may go in for a group tour but in case if again we plan to have it only for the two of us, (me and my wife), we’ll surely need your help !!

…. And yes, Sarita at the very starting stage and later on Heena helped us a lot in planning our itinerary and was also responding to our emails regularly.

Thanks again !!


Thank you !

Dear Vardhman Vacations team
We made a wonderful trip through South-India and were delighted to visit the two regions, Tamil Nadu & Kerala; two complete different regions with a lot of interesting contrasts.
I would definitely recommend Vardhman Vacations to friends, family, etc. .

In terms of feedback, I would like to split it into 3 categories:
1) Vardhman Vacations
2) Our Tour-Guide (Rani)
3) Our Driver (Ravi)

1. Vardhman Vacations
I appreciated your timely responses to the various emails that were exchanged before our trip, ie. very professional approach.
After having experienced the two weeks in South-India, we realised that maybe we should have changed our itinerary slightly. However, that's were the expertise of Vardhman Vacations would have to come in play as they have the experience, not us.
It would have been great if Vardhman would have made some further suggestions in relation to our itinerary; for example:
- 1 night at Periyar was not sufficient as there are so many things to visit and to see;
- 2 nights at Kumbakonam was too long;
- 1 night at Cochin was too short.
etc.
Of course I fully appreciate that we submitted the initial itinerary to you; however, a few useful suggestions/recommendations from Vardhman, based on other clients' experience in Tamil Nadu & Kerala, would have been helpful.

- The organisation itself was perfect (ie. Rani & Ravi were at the airport of Chennai on time and we also had our driver in Mumbai).

FYI - the hotels were all great, except for the OVM Resort in Kumbakonam; it was dirty and there was even no water on the second day. So I would definitely not recommend this hotel to anyone.
The greatest hotels were:
- Maison Perumal (fabulous and the chef cooked delicious non-spicy food for us)
- Elephant Court (Periyar)
- Old Bristow Light House
- GRT Regency (Madurai)

2. Tour-Guide (Rani)
Rani did ask for our explicit feedback from the individual group members, which we were more than happy to provide to her.
In general, our feedback to her was as follows:
- she was a great tour guide, always in a good mood and cared about her group.
- she was very flexible and tried to make last minute arranges (eg. the two separate drivers that would bring us to the airport on our last day given the fact that it was impossible for our driver to perform the two trips within timelaps of a few hours).
- she set clear timelines (eg. meeting at reception at xxhours, etc.)
- she did speak French but most of the time we ended up speaking in English. Her French still needs to be further improved but Rani told us that she intends to spend some time in France next year. This will definitely be very positive for her and her future career.
- we were hoping that she would have given us more explanations with regard to the places we visited; we are under the impression that we did not learn a lot within our 2 weeks. However, if we did ask questions, she tried to answer them to the best of her knowledge.
- it would have been nice if you would have given us a high level explanation about the history of India and also a slipsheet/diagram with the various Gods (as it got quite complicated: Vishnu, Shiva, Parvati, Murga, Ganesh, etc... :-))
- we were very surprised that around lunchtime, we ended up in a shop were tea/biscuits/bananas were offered to us. However, on Day 3, we did inform Rani that we did not just want to eat bananas/biscuits at lunchtime but would rather eat in a proper restaurant.
Our suggestion would be that the tour guide checks upfront with the group whether they are interested in going to shops daily and just eat biscuits, or whether they would rather not stop at the shops and eat in a restaurant. As long as things are discussed openly with the group, it's fine, but we felt it was kind of an arranged situation between the tour guide/travel agency and the shops.
- overall, we were very satisfied with Rani and we wish her best of luck with her future career!

3) Driver (Ravi)
Great driver who safely drove us from one place to another. He was also very flexible and thoughtful.

Kind regards,
Veronique

We'd like to thank you for the well organised trip we made with your company

Hi there Rajiv!,

Mum and I are back in Sydney and wanted to write to say thank you for our wonderful tour with Vardhman vacations! We wrote a review below which we would be very happy to go on your website...

We recently spent 10 days traveling in Rajasthan on a "customised" tour to include Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur. This included a driver throughout, plus a guide at several of the major sites of interest- Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, a day of sight-seeing in Delhi and Jaipur.

Our driver, affectionately known as "Sharm-ji" took great care of us- he was always mindful of our well-being and very accommodating with all our plans.

As two women traveling alone, he made sure we were always safe, even making sure we crossed the roads safely!

Our guides were all excellent, with a wealth of local knowledge- we always picked their brains for their favourite local joint to eat at that night, with success every time!

All our hotels were very comfortable- the two most outstanding were the stunning heritage hotels in Jodhpur and Udaipur, where we could have easily spent longer.

With only a limited amount of time to explore India for the first time, we felt that our itinerary, planned with the help of Vardhman, was busy and exciting, without feeling rushed. The distances between each city is not far, but the roads are difficult, so the driving often took up an entire morning or afternoon, which was tiring, but anticipated, and worth "factoring in" this additional time to the itinerary.

All our correspondences with Vardhman were extremely helpful and prompt and it was generally very well organised.

We would both highly recommend Vardhman vacations for those planning travel in India- either for the first time or for a return visit. Having local guides and driver made the experience more authentic and overall we were very impressed with the high level of organisation and attention to detail..

Hello Rajiv. My family and I are now back in the U.S. after a wonderful three week holiday in India organized by you and your firm.

I want to let you know how very pleased and happy we were with you and your firm's services. I admit we were somewhat nervous, not knowing you personally except for your website and email communications. However, it all worked out extremely well. India is a large and culturally diverse country where oftentimes things can go awry, but your itinerary and your services were extraordinary.

Your planned itinerary gave us just the right amount of time to see the wonder and beauty of Rajasthan, Agra, Kerala and Pune but kept us moving at a satisfactory pace. All the drivers were excellent, particularly Raju, who navigated so well through some difficult traffic jams and poor road conditions. All the within-India flights you arranged for us actually departed and arrived on time (better than our return flights home).

The quality of the hotel accommodations were for the most part excellent, operating as a quiet and spacious oasis for the three of us. Our only complaint would be Fort House in Cochi which was not up to the quality level of the other accommodations. (Hotel Lohmod of course was adequate solely for its proximity to the airport which we needed). I must not forget to thank you for the houseboat you booked for us, which was simply first class and a highlight of our trip.

It was great to have tour guides in the cities we visited; though to be perfectly honest, the guides were a mixed bag - particularly friendly, articulate and informative were the guides in Jaisalmer, Udaipur and Agra. A suggestion here for you would be to provide your customers with tour guide vouchers, as you did hotel vouchers, as the guides often asked if we had them.

All in all, you created and fulfilled a wonderful vacation experience at a reasonable fee for my family that will leave us with great memories (and photos) for years to come. Please feel free to use me as a reference and I wish you and your firm the very best.

Regards,
Alan Silow

Hello all at Vardhman..... Now I'm over my jet lag it's time to thank you for a wonderful tour of Rajasthan and your efficiency. Everything went very smoothly. All the accomodations you booked for me were good and some were very good. The Hotel Jaisal Castle in Jaisalmer was a little basic but the atmosphere of being high in the fort, the view from the room and the friendly family that ran it made up for the comparative lack of creature comforts. Please pass on my special thanks to Sanjay Kumar. He's an excellent driver who reads the road well. I always felt perfectly safe under all road conditions with Sanjay at the wheel.I will be happy to do business with you again in the future. I am already contemplating another tour with car and driver to do a loop out of Mumbai in the near future. Can you suggest a route that would take in the Ajanta and Ellora caves and other places of interest on the way? Thanking you again... best wishes....

Dear Mr. Rajiv Jain Copenhagen 26.09.2007

We have now returned to Denmark after our visit in India, and wish to express that we are very satisfied with all arrangements made by you such as hotels, planning, visiting the sights and guiding. Some of our hotels were especially excellent for example Pushkar Palace in Pushkar and Shahpura House in Jaipur.

Furthermore we like to thank our driver Mr. Ram for excellent driving, service, and god company, we were always very safe and comfortable.

We would like to return to India again some other time, and will look forward to live the arrangements to you and the driving to Mr. Ram.

Kind regards

Hi Rajiv

We still remember the trip arranged by you. What an experience we had. Initially we were reluctant but you were confident that the weather won't effect our trip. Thanks we listened to you.

Give my regards to Sanjay.

Our best wishes to you and your family.

Our future India tours will be through you only.

Dear Rajiv,

Just a note to say thank you for a wonderful holiday experience. Ram was great as our driver for the first week and we felt totally safe and at ease with him at the wheel and accompanying us on our travels. The Sher Bagh resort at Ranthambore was a delight and cannot recommend it enough - the food and service was
excellent. Our only disappointment was that we did not see any tigers a Ranthambore on this occasion.

However, our expectations were exceeded at Bandavgarh and Kanha - where we were fortunate to have numerous tiger sightings (forgotten how many) which we can only describe as magical. I attach a photograph as evidence.We also enjoyed getting to grips with catching trains in India!

We also had a great day at the Vasant Continental on our last day to celebrate my birthday. We had a wonderful room and enjoyed a chance to relax by the pool - and the Chinese restaurant there is excellent!!

Thanks once again

Hello Rajiv,

We have now arrived back home from a fantastic holiday in India . I wanted to send you an email to thank you for all you hard work in organising our tour, everything was planned and executed wonderfully. Sanjay Kumar our driver was fantastic, he was very professional and tentative to our needs. Please can you pass on our thanks to him again.

On a positive note, Vardhman Vacations more then exceeded our expectations and all four of us had a memorable time. We will definitely recommend and use your company again!.

Dear Rajiv,

I wanted to write and give you some feedback about our vacation. We had a great time and were impressed by everything we saw. I know you worked hard getting us the train reservations and the train trip went well. Raju, the driver we had in Mumbai, was fantastic. He knew the city well, was patient with us and was always where he said he would be on time. He really made the vacation in Mumbai a success. We loved the Meadows and hope we can go back someday.

The vacation went off without a hitch and this was due to your hard work. Rest assured, we will be passing your contact information to the Community Liaison Officer at the Embassy and to all of our friends. Thank you again for everything!

Dear Mr. Rajiv,

I have sent several mails to the hotel. The first time they replyed that it was the wrong e-mailaddress... After that, they did not reply anymore. It seems they are not willing to make some arrangement or to refund the money. I will keep on trying and will contact our organisation about this. They can't help us directly, but they can publish bad reviews about the hotel...

Regarding your services and company. We were very happy with the tour. It was a wonderful experience. We hope to make another tour with Vardhman Vacations soon, maybe in another country, maybe in India... Some of our friends and family are very interested in your company, but as you know a lot of people only want to go with a Belgian tour operator. I can only tell them that your services were very professional, that the hotels and cars were very nice, aswell as the services from drivers, hotels and you. If anyone has a question about your company e.g. you may always send them our emailaddress. It's always reassuring when someone gets information in his/her own language (we speak French and Dutch).

Kind regards and hope to see you soon,

Dear Rajiv Jain,

We are now back home after our Tiger Safari. I would like to thank you and your staff for arranging this holiday for us. The arrangements were very good, the Tiger Trails and Wild Chalet Lodges were excellent, the service and food in these lodges were great.

Although we only had two full days on safari we saw three tigers in Tiger Trails and one in Whild Chalet. It was amazing as was all the other wildlife we saw.The overnight train journeys were an experience!!!!!!!

When we return to India we will most certainly book with you again. Once again thank you and your staff for a well planned short holiday and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who wanted to holiday in
India.

Kind regards

Dear Rajiv

Thank you for organising our tour of Rajasthan. It was rather rushed but given the limited time we had it was well planned. We will make sure we have more time next time we visit India. We finally developed our photos and they look great, bringing back good memories.

Regarding my CD stuck in Sanjay's car, have you had a chance to mail it to Melbourne Australia? It would be greatly appreciated if you can mail that soon if you haven't already. Thanks.

Dear Mr. Jain,

Just wanted to let you know how pleased Mr. Battelli and I have been with the service you provided us on our trip in Rajasthan from Jan. 3rd to Jan. 21st 2006. For a reasonable price you had us stay in a range of hotels which suited us, some actually beat our expectations, being in the former palaces of maharajas. Your driver, Veejay, was an expert and knowledgeable guide along with his superior driving skills. The locations you selected for our itinerary were outstanding. Don't hesitate to refer future interested clients to me.

With best wishes for the growth of your enterprise

Dear Rajiv,

Now we are back in Sydney, we wanted to thank you again for the most wondeful time we had in Rajasthan and Varanasi.
You and your company delivered so much more than we had ever imagined !

Your close personal attention, the wonderful,helpful and thoughtful service of our driver Vijay and the standard of the guides in every location greatly surpassed our expectations ...and ensured that we had the best time possible. The convenience of having the car at our disposal plus the detailed knowledge provided at every site visited ensured that the trip was very comfortable,fruitful and trouble free.

Overall, the standard of the hotels was high, and we appreciated the mix of styles of hotels...from castles to havellis to a hunting lodge !
We particularly enjoyed the 27 hour train trip from Varansi to Mumbai, a very comfortable cabin and great service.

And thanks so much for throwing in the 4 hour driving tour around Mumbai to fill in the time before our plane departed. We got a bonus "taste" of Mumbai, enough to ensure that we will go back there.

We plan to return to India , next time we will concentrate on the south, Kerala, Chennai , Goa etc....and we will definitely book through Vardhman Vacations !
Again, thank you so much for making our trip to Indai so memorable!

With Best wishes,

This is just a quick note to tell you we arrived home safely and had a wonderful time. With the exception of the drive from Hubli to Goa (there are train stations much closer) and having to argue with hotels to stay late (or just pay more as I did in Bangalore), the trip was wonderful. South India is little known in the US. There is no advertising about it. We have, as you know, been to the north a few times and we are very happy to traveled so extensively in the South this time.

We will give your name and information to others and see if they are adventuresome enough to come there.

Thanks for all your work and help.

Hi Rajeev,
Came back home safely.
Had wonderful time in India. The places that were arranged for us to tour were beautiful. At the end of the tour we were bit worn out but never the less, the trip is worth venturing and the memories will remain for ever. Have met some very nice people such as your car drivers/guides who made our trip worthwhile.I have sent the parcel to Mrs Gayatri today and I have also spoken to her after posting the gift. She told me she moved down to Sydney and works from her home. She will track down her parcel.

Tell my regards to every one at home.

Dear Rajiv,

Just a short note to say that we are back home safe and sound.

Thank you for the great holiday that you organised to Rajasthan. The 10 days in Rajasthan / Agra will remain fond memories of the trip that we enjoyed very much. Every part of the journey went according to plan and we want you to convey our special thanks to Sanjay Kumar who was our driver and protector all the way.

I had completed the Tour evaluation form on the hotels that we stayed at, but forgot to give it Sanjay when he dropped us off at the airport. I will fax this to you tomorrow.

Thanks again, and we will certainly use you on other tours with in India.

Dear Mr Rajiv,
Thank you for a very memorable trip. We enjoyed every minute of our tour in India. The only upsetting part was the flight from Jaipur to Mumbai and having to get the connecting plane to Kochi. Impossible, as you know that all flights in India are always late.

Thankyou for all your good services, excellent drivers and guides.I hope that within the next two years I will be back and be able to use your services.

Will refer to my travel agent your name and company and hope to send some more Israelis through your company.

Many thanks and good wishes,
Cecily Peretz.

Dear Mr. Rajiv,
one week ago we returned back home from our Rajasthan- plus Rishikesh-tour. Also on behalf of my friends, Traute Schroeter and Dorothee Krause, I wish to thank you for the perfect organization of the Rajasthan-tour and additional transfers and bookings in New Delhi, you had arranged for us. We very much appreciated the punctuality of your drivers in New Delhi (Mr. Anil?) and cannot enough praise Mr. Sanjay Kumar, who drove us during our Rajasthan-tour. He is a wonderful person and absolutely safe and reliable driver. Thank you also for the good car you had organized for us.That made the long distance tours comfortable.

With thanks and kind greetings from Germany,
Gisela (Chakravorti)

Hello Rajiv,
Thanks for taking care of my passengers for me. They had definitely enjoyed their trip in India and I will be getting a lot of recommendation from Ms. Elsie Lin as she knows a lot of in Canada.

I would like to first clarify the payment with Ms. Lin about the flight cost upon her return and I will get in touch with you as to where you can sent the payment to in India. In the mean time, you can hold on that amount.

Apart from that, it was a great pleasure dealing with you as you are very prompt with your quotes and replies. I sure hope, I will get in touch with you again for my next passengers to India. In a meantime, I am just wondering if I can use sample itineraries from your website for me to market to my other passengers here? How can I get approximate cost relating to those trips that I find on your site? If I need to set up bookings for palace on wheel, when do I start doing that and how can I find availability?

I am planning on a group tour to India for the next season and I will get in touch with you on that.

Thanks again, and will get in touch with you soon.
Sincerely,
Leo

Dear Rajiv Jain,
We are came back in Belgium since four days. We have excellent memories of our trip in India. Rajasthan is one interesting country and your organisation is very professional. We have asked to you cultural, romantic trip and desert and you have organised all our wishes. It's impossible for us to drive in India and our driver was very prudent and careful. You have maked good choice for hotels. It's the second time that we travel with your agency and we are very happy (first 2004 in South India).

Thanks and we hope to see you later.
Best regards
Christine and Jean Hanssens (Belgium)

Greetings
.
Almost two years ago, you set me up with an excellent one day trip and tour of the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort. The driver and car were most satisfactory and the local tour guide you arranged was incredibly knowledgeable.
I will happen to be in India again this month and would be very interested in the same tour. This time I am traveling with my wife, so there would be two of us. A mid size car would be preferable.

Regards,
Henry Werchan

Hello Rajiv,

Just a little word to thank you for all your good services that contributed in making our honeymoon an unforgettable experience! Service was perfect, sites and hotels beautiful and very comfortable (except for Holiday Inn!). Your country is beautiful, very colourful and full of interesting contrasts. The backwaters and the Kovalam beach resort were so relaxing after our travels in Rajasthan.I could have stayed in the resort for another week easily! Wonderful place!

Now, it's back to reality for us which is a little hard on me but I must adapt! I do keep very nice memories of the holiday and have been telling our stories to family and friends. Many have asked your coordinates for the day they plan to visit India.We give them willingly and will certainly call upon you the day we plan another trip to India.

Thanks again and please give our regards to Chanden (don't know whether I spelt it right but I mean our Rajasthan driver). It was very nice to be driven around by him.

Take care and wishing you all the best,

Mireille & Serge
Belgium
