The trip was highly enjoyable for me. All my objectives were achieved. The ‘sampler’ style of the trip allowed us to get a glimpse of India, its birds, tigers, and to see one of the world wonders. All for an attractive price that allowed me to add the travel from USA and still feel I received value for money. I don’t have words to express how grateful I am for the wonderful birthday celebration.”

The trip was very well organised, the hotels were really good (I loved their ‘rustic’ and rather quirky style – a real taste of rural Spain) and the scenery in both locations was superb.”
Paul ~ Southampton
