It was an experience of a lifetime. A perfect memory I will never forget!
This was our 6 th visit to India. We have travelled before with companies specialising in the country, but they tended to get too big and the personal service was lost. Indian Odyssey gave us that personal service, and also came up with an itinerary that offered us one or two different locations from other agents – thats why we chose Indian Odyssey. The person who dealt with our enquiry is also familiar with the country which makes a big difference when you are discussing holiday options.
Many thanks once again for a wonderful trip enhanced by your outstanding organisation & attention to detail.
