Thank you very much for organising such a wonderful trip. Firstly I must say a great thank you to our wonderful driver Mr Praicash he was brilliant; very informative; supportive and knowledgeable. He looked after us both for the whole trip and went over and above on a number of occasions.
I just wanted to give you some feedback on a few things;
In the main the hotels were great but I would like to make the following comments on some of the hotels.
Pondicherry – we were disappointed that we were not located in the hotel in the French quarter but the hotel was good. The fact that you could walk out of this hotel and walk to destinations was great.
Madurai – the hotel was lovely and it was nice to have a bath (perhaps a consideration when doing such long trips.
Perryar – the Spice Village was great lovely rooms and the ability to walk out was great.
MV Vindra Cruise was out of this world.
Cochin – the Taj hotel in Cochin was beautiful.
They were on the whole very good and informative I must highlight the guides in Madurai and Cochin both of whom were excellent and deserved to have a mention. The guide in Pondicherry was not the most informative.
I would like to thank you very much again for organising the trip.

Further to my telephone conversation with you today, this is to confirm our profound thanks to you and your team for the amazing tour of the Deccan and Kerrela.
As you know it was a profound disappointment when our train was cancelled – the Deccan odyssey with such short notice. However your reorganised itinerary did not disappoint.
Everywhere we went; we were met by highly efficient teams who whisked us to our hotels and picked us up to return to the airports. They even checked us in, waiting until we had passed security.
Our guides were knowledgable, the sightseeing amazing, the hotels first class, the house boat wonderful. What is more none of us became ill! One small improvement would have been two nights on the boat rather than one, but one night was our suggestion.
It was fortuitous that we alighted on your company. I cannot praise you enough.
Hope that you will look after us again in the not too distant future.

Congratulations on a excellent tour, all went seamlessly.
A special mention to our driver who was fantastic in all ways.
A good/safe driver and also guide. We saw many other sights specially requested because of him.
Most of my friends are now back in the US. Everyone enjoyed the trip thoroughly on board the Luxury Palace on Wheels . Thank you for everything & arranging such a fantastic holiday.
Hi Rajiv and Team, thanks you for all your help on these tours. We were most happy with your product (timely drivers and clean transport) and services (guided tours).
I would like to personally recommend how well the tour guides were and happy to review on line. Please advise how / where to do so for each of the guides;

We have just returned from our holiday and wanted to write and thank you very much for all your work in organising such a wonderful trip.
From the moment we contacted you about the possibility of our venture in Indochina, we have felt incredibly well looked after and well informed. Your attention to every detail is much appreciated even to the degree that before we travelled we had received information on everything we would need even including what the welcome notices would look like at each airport .
We really liked everywhere we stayed, each hotel was perfectly located, near, if not in the centre of the towns and not in the midst of the tourist areas. They were all interesting and had a local flavour to them, they felt relevant to the area rather than the homogenous big chain hotels.
Each of the four guides were truly wonderful, Mr Ha, Mr Lup, Mr Vu and Mr Chin, were all charming and helpful whilst imparting useful and interesting information, they followed your well-structured and thoughtful itinerary, as well as being open to adjust it as we felt necessary on arrival in each place. We felt incredibly well cared for, and really valued the small considerate details, as well as the ready supply of bottled water which was always much appreciated. The guides were wonderful in being aware of particularly busy routes or times when visiting the sites, and managed to lead us away from these to make the most of everything we saw. We would like to mention that all the drivers were really good too…
The choice of meals in interesting restaurants with local food was fantastic too (we had 2 not so good meals and fed back to the local guides our thoughts on this which they seemed pleased to hear as they were keen on getting things right for the next travellers)
Extraordinarily, we received a message when we were on the boat in Halong Bay to let us know that our flight was delayed a little. What amazing communication!
We have been impressed by th organisation every inch of the way, resting certain in the knowledge that all was taken care of, which allowed us to enjoy a fantastic and memorable trip at every moment.
With our gratitude and thanks and we are already thinking about when we can be in touch again for another adventure…

Just a short email to say ‘thanks’ for making all the great arrangements that made our recent holiday to Kerala so enjoyable.
Everything went to plan and we had a super time.
Finally I have written a review of our : South India Highlights
January –February 2019
From start to finish the trip was superb.
Booking and communication with Tailormade Journeys was excellent. Rajiv was always just a helpful email or phone call away.
The trip was very well organized, from the first moment when we were met by a representative at the airport and our fantastic driver for the next 3 weeks , Anbu – a true gentleman and ambassador for South India; knowledgeable, friendly, kind, caring and helpful.
The Hotels were generally excellent, particularly worthy of mention for service and quality :
Tanjore -Ideal River View
Houseboat Deluxe Air Conditioned Houseboat – wonderful staff
Periyar -Cardamom County (Periyar Cottage) – excellent staff and restaurant
Munnar -Tall Tree (Cinnamon Cottage) -Location
Mysore Radisson Blu Plaza – Outstanding Restaurant staff.
The trip was a tremendous opportunity to visit parts of India new to us and to revisit parts we had previously visited. The contrasting scenery, sights and sounds of cities, lakes, waterways and the sea, temples and the tranquility of the hills.
An outstanding trip from start to finish. We wholeheartedly recommend this company .
Please use this review in any way you wish. I am happy for people to contact me for verification.
This was our 4 trip with Tailormade Journeys and we have been meaning to congratulate you on arranging the most amazing holiday to Sri Lanka . Thank you so much,we had the most marvellous time. Wow,what a country.

We just wanted to write and say how brilliant our holiday was to India and to say a huge thank you for such amazing organisation.
Every pick up and drop off was to exact time and we didn’t have to worry about anything at all.
The guides we had were so friendly and have enormous knowledge, there wasn’t anything they couldn’t tell us.
We covered everything we wanted to see and appreciate the complexity of our requirements but it was all executed perfectly.
Also thank you for your intervention to finalise things with the outstanding issue with Sol de Goa, that helped us so much.
I would just like to say the quality of care and service throughout our stay was faultless, particularly at The Tuli Tiger resort in Kanha, the people there were incredible and we did see a tiger (!) and the Brijrama Palace, that was a real Palace, a beautiful location with really amazing food and such helpful people.
So thank you again, we have recommended you, your company and services to friends already and will continue to do so.
Very best wishes,
Shelley and Shaun
