Thank you so much for organizing such a wonderful trip for us encompassing such a variety of experiences. Our driver Lalji was a skilful driver, a wonderful personality, very thoughtful and caring with a great sense of humour and a beautiful singing voice - how fortunate we were. All our guides were very good but Sunda in Trichy and Abi in Kumbakanam did stand out with their professionalism. The hotels we evaluated for you - the Paradise Resort in Kumbakanam was disappointing but it was only for one night. There were the many contrasts of city and village, beach and country, temples and forts, the crowds and the empty spaces, not to mention the adrenalin rush of the roads with so much traffic and so many horns! . It was particularly interesting to compare the practice of the Hindu religion in India with Indonesia, to visit the Gandhi museums in Madurai and Mumbai, enjoy the peace and tranquility of the houseboat on the Alleppey backwaters, to see the tea, coffee and spice plantations and the cooking class - I could name everything!
There appeared to be a great respect for each other among the people, living side by side with different life styles, religions and ways of life - even the chaotic traffic had a fluidity depending on one to allow the other into the traffic stream - well maybe not the local bus drivers! I did appreciate your thoughtful messages and the lovely flowers on tour. I hope you received my messages of thanks during the tour Manoj and that you have fully recovered from your respiratory problem.
There is still a lot of India I would love to see and I will certainly contact you if I can make another trip to your wonderful country. Thank you again very much for giving us such an interesting and varied tour........said Helen McCathie travelled through us Jan 2015.
The driver Krishna was outstanding, polite, well-dressed and very patient. The road conditions were hazardous at times, but he negotiated them very capably. This is the second time I have used your company and I am extremely satisfied with your service. I will continue to recommend your company to colleagues visiting India and will be in touch for my next trip.......said Randy Bindra, USA travelled through us from 04 Mar. to 09 Mar. 2013
We would like to thank you and your colleagues for a very well organised three week holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed it and everything worked very well. The overnight on the houseboat was a wonderful experience, it was such a change from being on the busy road, and to have the peace, silence and tranquillity for nearly 24 hours was indeed very nice. So, we can also recommend that and the two crew were very good indeed, and we thoroughly enjoyed the meals they provided for us. It was really good experience..........said Ketty Tomes, UK travelled through us from 28 Jan. to 17 Feb. 2013
Thank you very much for great trip in India. My 4th trip to India has made that I’m more addicted to India than I was before (I thought that I couldn’t be more addicted but I was wrong). I tell only positive things to all my friends about my trip and TSI. Maybe my girl friend decides to visit South India with 3 other girls. I also look forward to visit Ladakh and Kashmir.........said Robert, Poland travelled through us from 29 Jan. to 13 Feb. 2013
Everyone is safely home again after our spice discovery tour, and we can definitely consider it one of our successes. Once again you won everyone’s hearts with your thoughtfulness and thoroughness in all our activities. I don’t know how we would have coped with the flight cancellations between Udaipur and Madurai if you had not been there to sort it out! ..............said Liz and Ian, Australia travelled through us from 13 Jan. to 29 Jan. 2013
Our tour of your wonderful country was fantastic. I was returning, after 36 years, but it was Helen’s first time and she loved every minute of the amazing journey. Our precious eighteen days seemed to stretch—there was so much to see and do! Each night we went to bed tired, and occasionally exhausted. And so, we really appreciated the extra effort made by all the Indian hotels to provide us with additional length in our double beds. Thanks you for making those arrangements. We were always very comfortable at night so we woke up refreshed, ready to enjoy the delights of the next day.........said Helen & Richard Walker, Australia travelled through us from 13 Jan. to 29 Jan. 2013
We just want to thank for the amazing service provided to us. We are very happy and impressed with all assistance and support you gave us during the whole trip......said Manha Cleusa, Brazil travelled through us from 22 Oct. to 02 Nov. 2012
We have enjoyed our trip to India and will certainly recommend TSI to any friends who wish to visit your beautiful country.....Dr. Chanvit, Thailand travelled through us from 11 Feb. to 20 Feb. 2012
