Hello Madam we had a wonderful trip. We have traveled a lot but never to anywhere like India, So we were nervous about the trip. As soon as we met up with your MR Surat Singh the driver we felt at ease we had a lot of confidence in him and were happy that all travel and hotel arrangements were taken care of by your company. We also liked the fact that the itinerary you have designed such a way that we could visit the sites that interested us, and skip the ones that didnt interest us or would be to tiring. Also the choices of hotels were wonderful. We really enjoyed our tour and would recommend it to our friends and family members. Thanks for making the trip so wonderful.
I read lots of glowing reports on Facebook and Trip Adviser about India Someday before getting your ideas, itinerary, quotes, hotel suggestions etc. They all said great things about you and all I want to do is simply say that they were all right! We have mentioned India someday to several people planning Indian trips and I hope for their sakes that they contact you! Thanks, Madam Mala for a great job!
India is so intriguing and mystical I knew as soon as I could afford it I would go. India Someday helped us with all the things we would struggle to do ourselves such as book train tickets, find cheap yet beautiful accommodation, stay with Indian families, visit spots off the beaten tourist track as well as giving us invaluable support and advice while in India. Aaliyah and Mala have been a joy & have made our first visit to India one I will remember for all the right reasons
