Dear Rajiv,


We had a wonderful holiday on the Maharaja Express


The staff were wonderful especially our valet.

We were treated like royalty.

The trips were excellent and the food lovely.

All of our Guides were so interesting and we learnt so much about India.

Our Dutch friends where very impressed with everything too.

What more can I say a great trip enjoyed by us all.

We’ve been back a few days now, and I thought I would drop you a line to tell you how thrilled we were with the holiday and all the arrangements made for us.

It exceeded even our highest expectations, and certainly makes us want to return and explore further. Everything went to schedule, and all of the agents, guides and drivers were where they should be at the right time.  I don’t know where to start with the Maharajahs Express, suffice to say we were treated like royalty, and for a first trip to India and a special birthday holiday to boot, it was the only way to do it.

Thank you again for the seamless arrangements.

Kind regards

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…


Best wishes

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.

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
