Kerala backwaters and City Palace in Jaipur
Thanks to all the team at Travelbay for a great first tour experience and first time to India! We've never been on a tour before so weren't sure if this kind of experience was for us. It proved to be very easy to just leave it all in your hands to arrange our trip for us, even as we modified our plans and flights quite close to our departure. We very quickly adjusted to being looked after every step of the way from the moment we were met by your Indian team at the airport.
Thanks again. We absolutely loved our time in India and how easy you and your Indian team made it for us.
The 9 days we spent in India were amazing, filled with historical sites, natural wonders and colourful sights and sounds. The local guides and driver were excellent, always helpful and professional. Seeing tigers in the wild, up close on the Safari was breathtaking. Would highly recommend this tour.
We had a great holiday. Your partner team in India was great. They were very helpful and made our holidays great. Fantastic partners to have in India. The car driver was very reliable and helpful. Always on time. The guides knowledge was fantastic. They had answers for most of the questions. We would also like to thank all of you for our fantastic time in India. Itinerary worked beautifully.
The nine days were packed with all of the things we wanted to see and do on our short trip through the Golden Triangle. Each of our guides were amazing, not only for their local knowledge but the way they managed to fast track us in to all of the sights to maximise our visits. They really brought all of the old forts and palaces to life with their narratives and stories of life under the Maharajas.
All of our transfers between cities and the drop offs at the sights were really smooth. We felt very relaxed despite the hectic, but normal, Indian traffic outside and always arrived at another great relaxing hotel after the days journey.
Between the guides and our driver we were always led to great restaurants for our lunch stops and the best and most comfortable (read that as the least hassle) places to shop for those things you really want to bring home from India, like marble elephants and cashmere scarves - you can never have too many of either!
Taj Mahal and Hawa Mahal (Palace of the Winds)in Jaipur
Just a note to say a big thanks. I just loved Kerala. The trip and Kochi was utterly amazing, you must go. I LOVED Kochi itself, the shopping, people, history.. And the river boat cruise an absolute highlight - BRILLIANT!! Staff were gorgeous, open, cooked whatever I requested without issue…really super. I would do again.
We had never been on an organised tour before India. When we arrived in New Delhi it was late at night and after a long flight it was so nice to just walk out of customs and have a smiling face holding a sign with our names on it and straight to the hotel without having to haggle and organise our own transport.
What can we say about all the guides and all the drivers - nothing but friendly and beyond helpful.
We did have one hitch along the way - the train we had booked from Varanasi to Agra was already running 15 hours late before it arrived LOL!! All good was quickly sorted and we were on a flight instead.
Loved Loved Loved India saw things there we have never and never will probably see again in our life - but hey isn't that why we travel.
Thanks again for the hard work you guys did and your colleagues in India.

Thanks for organising an excellent holiday! Everything went like clockwork and we had an amazing time.
Our guides were knowledgeable and our driver, with us for the whole trip, was terrific company. He had a great sense of humour. He really went out of his way to make sure we had the best possible time.
The hotels were very good. We would certainly consider using your agency again for another trip.

Lake Periyar, Kerala and the Ganges River, Varanasi
We had a fantastic time. The hotel in Delhi was a great place to stay. All the staff were exceptional. Best food, bed and pillows. They treated us as if we were family. Abhi from the tour company was fantastic, as were the guides and drivers. Thank you Nikki, Nicola and Fiona for putting this trip together.
The trip has been fantastic. Abhijeet, our driver Arwin and all the tour guides have been great. Could not fault them. They went out of their way to please us and make sure we are comfortable and were enjoying our tour. Their knowledge of the history has made the trip even more interesting. What can I say about the Taj .......speechless!!! Our dream fulfilled.
Thank you Nikki for putting this tour together for us.
It certainly was a new experience and we enjoyed visiting the various monuments especially the Taj Mahal (the highlight of our trip!). One off the bucket list! Were glad we went for the upgrade because the accommodation and meals were excellent (that was one of our main concerns with going to India).
Going through the cities, it has opened our eyes and we are so lucky to be living in Australia. We had always planned to do/try something different every year and this is definitely one of those trips. The time spent amongst nature in the forest at the Bird Sanctuary was one of them we didn’t think we’d enjoy that but we did.
It could have been the worst holiday of our lives but due to the honesty of the cleaner at Courtyard by Marriott at Agra, we managed to retrieve my jewellery pouch which contained my engagement ring, eternity ring, pair of ear-rings, bracelet and another gold ring. Being distracted by a phone call, my husband inadvertently left the pouch in the safe deposit box and we only realised it was missing when we reached Jaipur and checked into the Marriott. A few frantic calls and the receptionist confirmed that the cleaner had handed in the pouch. Now to arrange a courier to deliver it to us in Jaipur, being the Holi Celebrations and a public holiday it would take at least 48 hours which meant we would be on the way to Delhi by then. Fortunately, the representative, Abhi, came to the rescue. After several calls between him and my husband, Abhi arranged for their driver to collect the item and deliver to us in Delhi by 10.30am the day we were to depart to KL flight (7.30 pm).
Thank you for organising our trip and we look forward to more travel plans with your company.

Agra Fort and Royal Bengal Tiger in Bandhavgarh National Park
We were very pleased with the representatives, tour guides and the driver. They all performed their respective jobs well and were very friendly and accommodating. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and provided us with a great deal of information. If we went on our own, we would not know any of the details they provided. The driver was experienced, were not sure how wed survived with driving in those conditions!
We were very impressed with our hotel accommodation and all the meals included in the tour package. Even the lunches/dinners at the outside restaurants were good. We find no fault with the inclusions in the tour package.

Thank you for organising our trip. Everything went smoothly and the local tour operators were very obliging. We enjoyed ourselves more than we anticipated. So thank you again. This is our second trip with Travelbay and we will keep our eye on your newsletter for more destinations.
Many thanks. We had an absolutely awesome time and were looked after from the time we arrived in Delhi to the time we left. Peter very much enjoyed his time in the kitchen learning how to make authentic curries. A highlight for us was the night at Sardar Samand Lake Palace overlooking a lake teeming with birds including flamingos and being cared for by the Maharajah's staff, a jeep safari and chai made by one of the local villagers in her "kitchen". The children here were delightful. Also the most magnificent lunch at the Ambrosia Restaurant in Ajmer. What can we say, so many highlights. Our driver was magnificent! For anyone who might be a little nervous about going to India rest assured that you will be fully looked after and very well cared for.
