Now that we've been home for a few days and jet lag is diminishing, I wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time on our trip. It was everything I hope it would be and more. I was most interested in the historical sites and the temples and found them to be even more impressive than I expected. Our appreciation for you and the people you work with is great. We were very well taken care of throughout our time there The arrangements were all good and transportation generally went very smoothly. And, when there were slight problems, Vidya, from the Delhi office, was always there to help out. In particular we wanted to compliment our first driver, Ravi. His competence was amazing and he was extremely helpful and responsive to our requests during the whole time we were together and despite the extremely difficult driving conditions at times. The other drivers were also good but Ravi was exemplary. So, again, thank you for putting it all together.
I wanted was to THANK you again tremendously for what appears to have been an epic trip for Andy and Vera. Normally I wouldn't just hand off clients to a supplier as I did with you but since I was traveling and their time was short, it was the best solution. Thanks for agreeing to it. I will continue to look for and bring you clients who want to visit India as I have no doubt you are now my #1 source for India.Thanks again! All the best,
I just had to send off a quick note to express how much I enjoyed India. The country, total experience, everything was so much more than I expected. It is most definitely a destination I will want to send my clients to, and hopefully tag along with a group so I can experience more of this fascinating country. My day to Agra with Vidya was nothing short of amazing!!! I will want him for every guided trip, he was so accommodating, knowledgeable and I just cannot say more regarding the time spend with him. He really knows how to take care of his people well.Thank you again
I still think the people’s personalities are different in different areas and for me, they have made lasting impressions. I met that wonderful woman in Chennai who was my tour guide. So knowledgable and had this regal air about her. Bottom line- I do know the power of your name in India. I remember being in many different places and if I mentioned you, things definitely took an upward swing and each person, would say…he/she knows Mark Sood!
The trip was utterly amazing. It was, I think, our best trip ever. Often on the trip Mark planned for us – it never failed to amaze us how guides appeared seemingly out of nowhere – it was the most well oiled and efficient vacation I think I have ever taken. It was classy and amazing, the gentle way we were handed off from one expert guide to another. Favorite Moments – Varanasi sitting on the Ganges in a boat watching the Hindu evening ceremony and then again at the sunrise ceremony.
