Dear Holidayz Mart ! We had a good time in Kerala. Thank you for arranging our tour plan so well and we enjoyed our stay in the hotels you reserved. The house boat ride was also good. Dixon took care of us well in all those days. I am looking forward to contact you sometime after a year or two for any travels in India. Thanks and regards !

Hello Holidayz Mart !! I wanted to write to you and thank you for arranging a very wonderful trip for my sister and I in Kerala. Your attention to detail and being proactive and staying on top of everything is very commendable. We enjoyed every day of our tour and especial thanks go to Anil Kumar our private chauffeur who was a very charming gentleman and very punctual and polite. I would recommend the travel company and especially yourself and Anil for a wonderful memories and a glorious time. I would be more than willing to give you a glowing reference. I did so after my trip and would again reiterate how happy I was with the services that you provided for my sister and my travel to Kerala in March of this year. I really appreciated the everyday contact that you initiated to make sure that our trip was going according to plan. The driver that was arranged for us was exceptional. Punctuality was exceptional. When he said 8 am pick up he was there and waiting at 7.55am. No 30 minutes early or 5 minutes late. I also appreciated the fact that when I complained that we did not have air-conditioning in one of the hotels you did not hesitate to remedy the situation with no extra cost. In fact I have also passed your name onto my cousin in the UK who are planning a trip to Rajasthan in Feb of 2017 so I am sure that he will contact you when he is ready to move forward. I would use your expertise again in any other future trips in India. Thank you once again and regards.

Hello Holidayz Mart !! I do want to provide feedback, but needed to wait until the weekend as work was busy after being away for 1 month. Here is the feedback from Steve and I. Re the pick up in Mumbai. our apologies - our flight was very late getting back from Madurai, and we had issues with our return flight (was cancelled and we had to book another flight) so we did not get to our hotel until 10:00 pm. The issue in Thekkady was not a problem.

Hello Holidayz Mart !! We had a great tour. Thank you very much for handling all aspects like flights, hotel bookings, car etc. in a very professional manner. Everything exceeded our expectations. I specially appreciate all the changes to itinerary and hotel bookings carried out promptly and happily by you. The driver, Mr. Monichan in Kerala, was extremely friendly and co-operative. Being a local, he also acted as a guide. We will always book our future tours through you and will not hesitate in recommending you to our friends. You handled our India tour in a professional manner. Your choice of flights, hotels and hire car was excellent. The driver was very friendly and acted as a guide as well. You accomodated the changes promptly. We are very happy with your service and pricing and I am sure that we will arrange for future holidays through you, MANY THANKS FOR HASHIM AS PROFESSIONALISM.

Hello Holidayz Mart !! It’s very nice to hear from your again. I hope everything goes smooth to you. I am very glad to share my tour experience in India at March. When I firstly contact through Internet with Holidays-Mart, Hashim gave me lots of valuable advises on my route design with competitive price. I chose the 4 days route which is Delhi – Agra -Jaipur and back to Delhi. Transportation : A car was arranged for myself during the 4 days trip. The local driver can speak good English. He took good care of me and he had good connection with local guide. I didn’t worry that at all. He was punctual on picking me up from hotels. Hotel Accommodation : I chose the package of four star international hotel. Those hotels I have been reserved were quite good, especially in Agra and Jaipur. It was so so for the first night staying in Delhi. But it was acceptably OK. Tour Toute and Guide Service : There were 3 local English speaking guides arranged in Agra, Jaipur, and Delhi. Generally I think they are all good. They followed the sightseeing destinations I initially booked with. And they explained in detailed introduction. The guide in Agra took me to two shopping points. But it was OK if I didn’t find any interest to buy. I am very happy with all services provided by Holidays - Mart. I am a female and travelling alone in India. And thanks to all the helps from Hashim, my driver and guides, I had a safe, and fantastic tour experience in India. I will consider to try different tour route in India for future and I will definitely come back to Holidays - Mart. Hope it helps.

We just got back this morning. I wanted to write to you on the night we came back from Haridwar, but we got to the hotel almost 1 am, the train was one hour delayed. First of all, thank you for the compliment. We do not like to cause trouble to people, especially when we see they are trying their best, and I could see from the beginning you were serious and efficient. It was during the booking process that I could find our more about your service and way of doing business. Keep up the good work !

Overall, our trip to India & Kashmir were amazing except for some minor glitches. We enjoyed it very much! Best experiences as follows : 1 : The hospitality of our caretaker Mr. Habib at the houseboat in Srinagar was really outstanding and incredible - he took care of all our needs. Our tour guide in Kashmir, Hajj Yaakub was also excellent. We felt very safe with him around. The landscapes of Kashmir are just awesome, no wonder people call it "heaven on earth." 2 : The snow in Gulmarg is so beautiful. The kids enjoyed the ski very much. Thanks to our snow guide Mr. Ghulam for his great service. Wish we could stay another day ! 3 : In Delhi, Jaipur and Agra, we were chauffeured by our great amazing friend Mr. Raj - his service and hospitality are just indescribably excellent! He is so accommodating, never-complaining and very helpful. If we were to tour India again, Mr. Raj would be our first choice to carry us around - he is just a wonderful person !. 4 : The tour guides you provide us are good. Some of the not so wonderful experiences are as follows : 1 : The service at the restaurants in Hotel Shahneshah (Kashmir) and Taj Resorts (Agra) were very poor. Restaurants staffs (specifically the managers) at both hotels were rude and looked down on Asians. Services were also very slow. If we have the chance again to visit these places, these two hotels must be avoided at all cost ! 2 : Due to unforeseen circumstances which were beyond our control, we missed a few places like Agra Fort in Agra and Gandhi museum in Delhi. The itinerary should have been planned more precisely to fit the intended tour. Attached are some snapshots of our tour of India and Kashmir for your perusal.

Hello !! Sorry for the delay. The planned trip was great. I am giving you both the good bits and the bits that could be improved – hope that is OK. Our driver was excellent, although we had a little trouble with communication, maybe I should have asked you to ensure the driver spoke English well. The trip to Munnar was lovely. We were disappointed to be told that we could not visit the wild life park listed on the itinerary (apparently it is closed for 2 months) and no alternative similar trip was offered. Accommodation in Munnar was good. The Allepay houseboat was a highlight and we particularly enjoyed the configuration of the boat we were in which allowed us to spend the night on the top deck in under the stars! Unfortunately we were late arriving at the houseboat (the houseboat driver told us we should have be there by 11.30am, the itinerary stated 1pm; we didn’t arrive til 2pm). Of course we should have had more time! Thanks again

Hai !! Thank you for the well planned holiday by you and your company. Overall there is no issue except for communication breakdown between the driver and us at Kolkata and Puri. Please take note (for future improvement), for foreigner like us, it is important for driver to know some basic English and able to communicate to us. The both drivers did the best to explain to us but not to our understanding. Hotel rating from top to bottom 1) Puri - superb 2) Chennai - superb 3) Varnasi- superb and the driver was super good 4) Bhunesswar - okay only 5) Kolkata- - not up the mark Train journey was good with 2 AC seating as requested. Take care. t.q

Hello !! Thank you for a memorable trip to India. I enjoyed it very much. My only regret is that I should have allocated more time in each city. I think three days in each city would be perfect. I was vey pleased with the accomodation that you booked for me. No problems with cleanliness and water etc. like we heard about. My favourite was Hotel C7 and least favourite was Emerald in Chennai. They were fumigating while we were there and it was not pleasant. But otherwise it was perfect. Even though there were a couple of mishaps like Choki Dhani and Thekkady riverboat, your company still shines. Every company will have problems, its how one solves the problems that shows a company's true greatness. I will definitely recommend you personally as an agent as well as your company to others. Yes i am also definitely looking forward to sharing a cup of coffee or even a home cooked meal with you :) Thank you once again

Hello All !! The service we received from you was most excellent! And on the whole the trip was a great success. Thank you!

Hello Sir/Maam !! At the end of a thoroughly enjoyable visit to India, my wife and I must thank you profusely for your outstanding management of our package. From the outset, you were prompt, courteous, eager to oblige and so discreet in your suggestions to make our plans the best they could be. We are still marvelling at the precision with which you attended to us and your attention to detail to ensure that the three weeks unfolded without a hitch. I can say without reserve that your work was impeccable and we enjoyed a brilliant engagement with what we came to India for: to soak up the rich history and culture as well as to trace our roots. I am very grateful for your warm reception on our arrival in New Delhi, your occasional calls to inquire about our comfort, your regular and timeous telephonic notificatition about arrangements for succeeding legs of our tour and your choice of obliging and courteous drivers. With best wishes and immense gratitude.

Hai Holidayz Mart !! Thanks for the e-mail. I apologise for not writing sooner. I only got home last Monday and have been busy sorting out things. I just got back to work this week. Thank you for everything on our India Tour. We had a very good and interesting time. The children also really enjoyed themselves and my daughter cannot stop talking about you! Thanks for the beautiful flowers and chocolates! It was so sweet of you! It would have been nice to have more time in India so that we could do things at a more leisurely pace. I think 8-9 days was too short and very hectic with very long, tiring drives. I think if given the option again I would definitely have taken more flights and driven less! India is rich in culture and history and there is so much to learn. The tours were very informative and the children couldn’t wait to come home and watch the movie Jodha Akbar again. There were times when we did find it a bit frustrating, when some of the drivers were unable to communicate in English as we had so many questions and requests and were unable to get pass the language barrier. Had this not been an issue I think we would have learnt much more. On the whole we had a good time and I am sure we will return to explore the southern part of Incredible India. Once again thank you for your efforts and we will keep in touch. I have some photographs which I will send to you later. Take care and all the best for 2012.

Le saludo cordialmente ya desde nuestro país deseando se encuentre bien, nosotros después de tantas horas de vuelo ya de regreso a casa desde el día 3 , un poco retrasada en comunicarme con usted por cuestiones de trabajo, pero quiero darle las gracias fue una bonita experiencia visitar su país sin duda para mí de las maravillas del mundo el Taj Mahal es la más bella y el conocerlo,estar ahí es algo inolvidable , en nuestra travesía por el sur le diré que se asemeja al sureste de mi país la vegetación, la gente se me hizo muy amigable y atenta y Auroville invita a vivir ahí, podría decirle que nos fue muy grato en general los días de nuestra estancia,le adjunto dos fotografías, una con mis compañeras y la otra donde estoy sola para que me identifique,no hubo oportunidad de verlo pero el servicio de su agencia fue bueno, muchas, muchas gracias por todas sus atenciones.

Lo primero pedirte disculpas por no haberte escrito antes. Quería agradecerte sinceramente en nombre mio y de Patricia el magnifico trabajo que habeis hecho para organizar nuestro viaje. Ha sido un éxito total, estamos encantadas y supercontentas de este maravilloso viaje. Teniendo en cuenta que has sido tres paises en tres semanas ha salido todo perfecto, ningún problema en absoluto y desde luego con muchas ganas de repetir. Puedes tener por seguro que si volvemos a India o conocemos a alguien que quiera ir os recomendaremos con mucho gusto. Por otra parte quería pedirte un favor: necesito que me des la dirección / correo electronico / pag. web…. o lo que tengas, de la agencia con la que hicimos el viaje en Leh, ya que le dije al chofer que le contactaría pero no puedo hacerlo Te lo agradecería muchisimo. Te envio unas "dulces memorias" del viaje, tenemos muchisimas fotos, pero no puedo enviar más en un solo mail, si quieres más dimelo y te enviare más. Un cordial saludo y espero que hasta pronto.

Esperaviamos el papel que te pidimos para rellenado ,pero no lo mandastes.Toda nuestra familia se fueron ayer despues de haber pasado los 2 meses de vacaciones, asi que ahora podemos reponderte. Estuvimos muy contentos de nuestr viaje a la India. Todo se paso bien y el chofer fue excelente,puedes trabajar con el porque es de mucha confianza. A lo mejor a una proxima vez.Thanks again for your excellent accompaniment of our trip in India !! It was a fantastic holiday!! Everything was very well organized: perfect hotels, very punctual chauffeurs, very punctual, friendly and helpful guides. They were well-informed about our program. We especially loved our guide in Kajuraho, who showed us the old town he lives in. We were even invited in his own house. Our daughters found it the best part of our trip. We also loved our young guide in Varanasi. By then, we were all sick ( vomiting and diarrhea) , and he took so good care of us. He was so helpful, did whatever we needed. It was very busy at the gaths in Varanasi, but he helped us through the crowd. We loved him. But his car was too small for 4 persons with luggage. One thing you need to know about hotel Star Rocks: the rooms on the 2 nd floor were much better than the rooms on the 3d floor. Thanks again, Best regards, also to your boss and your collegues, Family Peeters from Belgium PS We have been contacted by Mr. Jos Tholens about your company. We have recommended Holiday Links

Thank you soooo much for the wonderful organization of the trip! As you understood we were quite worried in the beginning as it was our first time in India and your habits are quite different from ours. Thus it turned out that you could pre-see things we even did not think about. And we really could enjoy some parts of India with its extremes. Some impressions: Taj Mahal was beautiful. We were so happy to see our driver. In the evening, the Ganga arti ceremony was impressive. we had a really skillful driver. As he did not speak English much we even could not thank him enough. Please tell him in your language that we really trusted him and that he made the journey enjoyable. All the hotels you had chosen and booked were different but good. We liked the food (your tandoori breads are irresistible! And so many variants of vegetable foods....) and people. Birahi was really nice with quiet surrounding and friendly people. In Badrinath there were several things to see besides the temple and we walked a lot. Mana village was also different and we walked to Vasudhara waterfall which was really as coming directly from heaven. We were amazed how calm, kind, and helpful you people were And of course your culture! And the differences between regions – it was good that we saw Delhi, some south and north. We discovered Akshardam in Delhi which made on us even greater impression than Taj Mahal. Just that it was new but so well planned, with many details and different places. We spent there whole day but were not able to see everything. The Sunset water fountain performance was impressive. As you see, the experiences are diverse but in the plane we had similar thought – it is the country where we would like to go back – to see different places as well. Once again – thank you! I we will come back and if you still work in the field, we will contact you. Also – we recommend you to other Estonians. We wish you good luck! Eve, Mairi, Piret (Helsinki Estonia)
