An on the go group in India

Postcards from India

Here's what some of our past traveller's have to say about their holiday with us:

 

Good morning Mark

Just wanted to let you know that Jane and I had an absolutely brilliant time on our trip, returning home on Saturday.

The whole thing ran without a hitch. During the first week we were with 12 other travellers with the same Guide (JUSUF) the hotel in Delhi left a little to be desired! Apparently anything any good is expensive but please look into alternatives. The Tuctuc drivers around there are pretty sharp and they take you all round the houses to get back to a restaurant just 80 metres away. However,as we continued there was much improvement in the hotels, the bus was comfortable and Jusuf was absolutely great. Vastly knowledgeable and proficient.

During the second week are trip was contracted out to TravelInn. The driver supplied, Bharat, was firstly a very good driver, but also 100% reliable, a great time keeper, always there when we wanted him and considerate. He drove us for over 1500 km and we at no time felt vulnerable. We felt like royalty sometimes turning up at the better hotels. He always greeted us with a smile and we hope we tipped him sufficiently!! The car was good quality (almost new). Whenever we arrived in a new town there was always a representative there to meet us, if not immediately then they came to find us on the hotel site somewhere. Then arrangements made for a pick up time the next day or later on the same day as appropriate.

The quality of the guides there after was always very good.

Just remains to say that we will not hesitate to use On The Go again in the future if the opportunity presents itself.

With many thanks

   Passage to India - 15 days

Janet
Wanted to thank you (well your company) for a super trip to India. I was apprehensive I have to say as I had never heard of your company and nor had anyone else I spoke to before I booked. I was able to have a very direct comparison between two companies because, as you know, I did a trip with another company first and then yours. The contrast between the two was significant. I learned more about India, its customs, its culture, its people, its way of life, its structures, its quirks etc in three days with Satendra than in just over two week on the other trip. Yes I saw some fantastic sights on the other trip but came away thinking what on earth I gleened about India itself.

We had a fantastic little group in the main and I know that was a bonus and whilst we all got on, the trip was made by the tour leader and of course his support crew, drivers, meeters and greeters, helpers. They were all great.

Satendra gave us so many precious moments. There were great sites and for me, even more spectacular and awesome than I anticipated and experiences too numerous to mention and quite unexpected, joining in wedding celebrations in Jaipur, into restaurant kitchens, the bathing at full moon in Orchha, the game drive to Panna, the village walks etc etc. He went out of his way to find out what was going on and this was often well beyond what one would normally expect e.g. organising for two of us (mad as we were) to go to see the sun rise over the Taj. He was also great when it came to food, helping out those of us who were not keen on hot spicy and those who wanted spice and hot and the ones in between. He also had such a wicked sense of humour and most of us really appreciated it and how patient he was when people were indecisive or needed help and support.

Satendra was enthusiastic and very caring and really added that 'wow' factor, something which is hard to describe but comes from someone who is not only passionate about their country but also their job and take a great pride in sharing knowledge etc with others. Rare and so seldom found in many leaders.

I know that a small group is often easier to manage more personally than a larger one, but he was such a professional I am sure than whatever the group they would all feel that had equal value. It is a true professional who can make each member of the group feel they got something extra and not to feel they are just one of a number.

A great big thank you. I am just wondering where in India my next trip will take me and had I not travelled with you, I am not sure I would be going back.

   Highway to Himalayas - 18 Days

This was a dream trip for a long time and lived up to expectations. A lot was packed into the tour but the organisation and support made it all run so smoothly. I wish we could do a rerun now!!!
Yusef is a real ambassador for India and on the go. He is courteous, helpful friendly - everything a perfect tour guide should be - thanks!!

   Taj Express - 8 days

Hi Ryan,

I wanted to thank you for organizing this superb tour for us! We have been to India before but never had a chance to go to Himalayas. I think it is a brilliant idea to put these two together in one tour. Views of the mountains were simply breathtaking.
We had an amazing time! Thank you once more.

   Taj Traveller - 8 days

Hello Janet

Now that we are back in the UK, I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your colleagues for organising our trip to India. We had an amazing time and an experience we will never forget. The efficiency of your people in India is incredible! There was always someone to meet us at the appointed time and help us with whatever was needed. We felt really looked after the whole time. Special thanks must go to Mr Singh, our driver in Delhi and Rajastan, and also to Vijay, our 24 hour point of contact who really was exactly that. We had occasion to call him twice, both times I might add when we were in hotels which you had not recommended, to ask if we could be transferred to somewhere else and he sorted it within the hour both times. We should have listened to you in the first place because all the hotels you recommended were superb.

The Lake Palace in Udaipur for our anniversary was really special because you had obviously told the staff that it was our anniversary and they upgraded us to the presidential suite and baked us a cake! Fantastic. We also loved the Khem Villas in Ranthambore, (where we saw 2 tigers), and would like to go back there to stay for longer one day.

We feel we have leaned so much about India from our guides who were all very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. It was great to be there during the elections and learn a bit about today's politics.

Anyway, thanks again for all your help. We are now considering going to Russia in February for my 50th birthday and you can rest assured that if we go it will definitely be with On The Go.
