TESTIMONIALS

Thank you very much for organising such a great holiday. The itinerary was brilliant and everything worked very well and there was always an agent to meet us on arrival at our next destinations. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and it has wetted our appetites to visit India again. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Indian Odyssey to any of our friends.

Tailor-made North India and Kerala

We returned home from India last week and just wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our Indian holiday with excellent co-ordination from your company throughout. We had a superb driver and some lovely enthusiastic guides, save for one poor guide in Jodhpur

. Our holiday was one of the most vibrant, colourful and cultural experiences ever with delicious varied food. Apart from the stunning Taj Mahal, we loved the beautiful Mehrangarh Fort and the larger Ranakpur temple was simply a/awesome! Udaipur was a delightful and restful city for our final destination with fabulous views of the lakes and away from the constant tooting of horns! Thank you for treating us to three evening meals – all very good and we ate both nights on the terrace at Ratan Vilas – super Haveli. We will return again and Sri Lanka also appeals as another vibrant and beautiful country to visit.
