Here are some reviews from our past travellers to India. For more details on each tour, simply click on the tour image.
Everything about the tour was timed to perfection and ran really smoothly. Sat was brilliant, helpful, knowledgeable, fun and excellent company. He went out of his way to ensure that we were never concerned about our safety. On a first visit to India we didn't know about dealing with tipping, street vendors, beggars, costs of tuk tuks etc, he was brilliant in all these areas and made me feel more confident in a very different culture. Our group had some very difficult clients and he was extremely professional in the way he dealt with them.
The tour was very hectic at a lightening pace, definately a taster of India.... Absolutely loved it and will be back soon probably for a month at a slower pace.”
This was a well balanced wonderful tour. Our tour guide was informative, well organised and most considerate to all our needs. As two ladies travelling on our own we felt very safe and well taken care of. This was particularly apparent on our overnight train journey from
Varanasi to Delhi. Our party was spread out along the compartment but Nand made sure we were ok.
At each place we visited Nand gave us plenty of information and then allowed us enough time to explore the site for ourselves. His deep regard for his country and his religion were also evident. He was a great ambassador for India. ”
The tour offered very little time to experience the locations at your own pace. We understand the tour was trying to take in as much as possible in the time available, but felt more free time could have been factored into the tour. Maybe extending by a day or two would help. The planning and organisation of the tour was of a high standard.
The guide, Yusef was excellent. His knowledge of the places we visited was tremendous.
He reacted to the needs of the group and laid on extra activities (Bollywood dancer in Agra). He managed a difficult situation very well when returning from Shimla by train, the coach was not present at Delhi railway station and caught up in traffic. Yusef organised alternative transport and guided us through the circumstances after a very long and tiring day of travelling.
The trip to Alsisar and the school visit was the low point of the tour for us. We did not feel welcomed at the school by their staff and teachers. Although supporting the school is a good cause the school visit did not add further cause justification. The Alsisar visit involved two quite long days of travelling for little enjoyment. The journey back from Alsisar to Delhi involved 9 hours coach travelling which was excessive when we considered the overall Alsisar indifference we saw.
The tour was made an overall enjoyable experience by the friends we made. This helped us get through the travelling on the last day.
We would consider using OnThe Go tours again and look forward to receiving details of their special offers.”
