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.
