Hi Devender,

The trip was excellent. Our travel guides in Delhi and especially in Agra (Arti) were excellent. Our driver SP Singh in Agra was also excellent.

The end to end arrangements from arrival at Mumbai airport to our return to the Mumbai conference at The Resort hotel were safe, secure, and enjoyable.

Thank you for your service.

Hi Devender,

I just wanted to say how great your travel company was to me. At first, I was so afraid I would get sick or be unable to walk well over in India, but I decided to give it a try. How happy I was! All the guides were great to me and so kind. Lal, our driver, was wonderful and safe as well.

Please tell everyone how much I loved them and thanks for the great experiences!

Also, thank you again for my lovely purse. Opera season starts next week and I will use it every time I go to the opera and will think of you.

You are very impressive!

Hi Devender,

I cannot say enough about the professionalism and attention to detail of you and your staff.

We loved India and the itinerary you put together.

Lalchand was an excellent driver, especially on the day we had a long ride.
He was friendly and always helpful.

All the drivers, guides, and contact people were first-rate, and I want to especially mention Zahid and "J," who helped Jeanne in Agra and Varanasi.
She requires a slower pace than younger people, and they helped her up and down steps at the Taj and into a boat on the Ganges. We were also very happy with the guides in Gwalior, Delhi, and Khajuraho -- they were knowledgeable and helpful. At Khajuraho our guide took the time to explain the temples in great detail and answer questions, so we were not just snapping beautiful photos without understanding.

We were pleased with the hotels as well; they were very comfortable. The service and food were excellent. The restaurants used off hotel property were superb as well.

I have only one minor suggestion. Given our arrival back to Delhi the night before the international flight, we wondered about staying at an airport
hotel instead of back at Justa, just for convenience.

Thank you again for putting together a trip that exceeded our expectations and allowed us to experience your great nation.

Hi Devender,

Sorry I didn't respond sooner. I meant to, but got busy with other things.

I just wanted to say how very pleased I was with the tour. I really enjoyed the flexibility of the driver and the tour guides. For example, I was able to skip Fatapur Sikri since I had already seen it, and was able to see the bird sanctuary instead. I like how you were able to readjust my itinerary in Delhi as well.

I thought all of the guides were really informative and took me to the most interesting places. I particularly enjoyed my guide in Jaipur the most. I thought he did a great job.

My driver was excellent. I thought he did an amazing job, was always on time, and I liked that he made sure I had plenty of water.

I thought all my hotels were excellent, although I didn't care for the food at the Tiger Resort. But the hotel manager was very nice, so I appreciated that.

Overall I loved the tour and thought I saw everything I wanted to see. You were very organized and very professional. I might not make it back to India for a while, but I would recommend you to my friends and family.

Thanks again,

Hi Devender,

We are sorry it took so long to get back to you we have been extremely busy with the continuation of our trip.

Thank you so much for making our vacation in New Delhi, Agra and Jaipur truly incredible. You made the entire experience very special, every aspect of our trip you handled was perfect, from the pick up at the airport to our final departure in Jaipur was excellent. The hotels that were selected were all what we expected and more.

Our driver is the best, we could not have asked for anyone better, extremely warm and friendly and most helpful in every way. He took extremely good care of us and treated us like family.

The guides that assisted us were also very friendly and extremely knowledgeable and did everything possible to make our tours a special experience.

We would highly recommend you and your wonderful team to anyone traveling in India as a truly exceptional, professional and caring team.

Wishing you the very best regards!

Thank You!!!!

Golden Triangle Tour
Sally Clifford and Caroline Aldrich Langen

Hi Devender,

It was a very long time ago--last April--when Sally Clifford and I were travelling in the "Golden Triangle" with Central India Tours. I just now re-discovered your address. And so I want to write now--belatedly--to thank you for everything you did to ensure our maximum comfort and enjoyment when in India. The arrangements were all really wonderful (with the one exception of the Tiger Safari Lodge). We were very pleased overall with our tour.

We especially want to commend the excellent driving and tour services and skills of DP All the tour guides were capable and fine, but we spent the most time with DP our driver, and learned much about India from him. In addition, we enjoyed his very good humor and courteous attention. Please extend our thanks to all, but especially to him.

We will be pleased to recommend Central India Travel to friends who are heading your way.

With very best wishes from
Sally Clifford and Caroline Aldrich Langen

Hi Devender,

Yes, we are home and we had a wonderful trip to India! We can't thank you and your associates enough. Everything we planned worked out perfectly! There were no problems. The guides in each city were professional, knowledgeable and caring. We enjoyed each of them and learned so much about India's fascinating history and culture! Each one also made sure we were comfortable, taking care of restroom needs, water and money. However, we want to especially comment on our driver. He was fabulous!!! We were with him for 5 days and really cannot tell you how much we appreciated him. His driving skills were outstanding and he made even my husband comfortable when driving in a completely different environment from what we are used to. He was also professional and extremely caring, making sure all our needs were met. He was always exactly where he said he would be and always on time. By the time we left we felt we were family and I find myself thinking about him even now that we are home. I cannot imagine that you could have any better driver in your company. I will certainly be recommending your company to any of our friends who want to visit India, and our daughter who wants to bring her husband and children next time will call on your services again. Again many thanks for a wonderful experience. We could never have done it without you.

Hi Devender,

I would like to take this opportunity to say that Keshav was the most careful, considerate driver, who always made sure I was taken care of at all times, he is an excellent driver, you must be proud of him:-))
I would also like to mention that Amir was an excellent guide while in Agra, also kind and considerate at all times, who also advised me on what to be aware of, another great employee you have as well as Jay in Agra, very polite, has a great sense of humor, also very helpful and protective of me at all times, your employees are a huge credit to you.

the first 2 hotels were very comfortable, clean with great food Nd service.

Once again thank you for a wonderful holiday and bestowing your wonderful staff to take care of me, I will miss Keshav :-))

Hi Devender,

Helen and I had a wonderful time in both Delhi and Agra!

The folks who met us at the airports / hotels were very friendly, professional, personable and courteous.

The driver was very friendly, also very knowledgeable, and we learned a lot about India (not just where we were) from him. A wonderful man - we laughed a lot! The car was perfect. the A/C worked well, it was comfortable and quiet.

Our Dehli tour guide was super knowledgeable about Delhi and its monuments / streets. We had a (very hot) lovely day. Although, due to jet lag and having worked very late the night before, we were tired, and the heat got to us. We therefore didn't experience everything on our agenda. Delhi is a wonderful, busy city, and I hope I can visit again to see the rest of it.

Our Agra tour guide was equally as impressive. His knowledge of the city, the history and the buildings was first rate. He also went out of his way to make sure we took some of the important "standard" pictures, which are some of my favorites (including the Taj Mahal reflected in the garden fountain). He introduced us to some of the local artisans, and as a result I did my part to prop up the Agra economy! :)

I have recommended your company to several people already, and will be sure to contact you again when I'm next in India, to make sure I get to see more of your fantastic country.

Many thanks,

Hi Devender,

We thank you all for the great time we had during our holidays in Rajasthan. Though it was burning hot, the driver and his assistant, all the guides and the people at the hotels and the family at the Haveli were wonderful and sweet. A very few tourists and plenty of space, so everybody was enthusiastic and we shared great moments.

Thanks again for this great organization.

Hi Devender,

We must give you a very big thank you as you and your team ensured that our first visit to India and Katmundu was such a tremendous success and a really wonderful experience.

From our earlier exchange of emails where you tailored our itinery and programme we already had good vibes about this adventure and must congratulate you and all your staff as the most professional and caring people we were privileged to meet during our 2 week tour, always giving us kid glove treatment.

First and foremost thanks to our wonderful driver Shyam who constantly kept us entertained during our 11 days and 1800 kms drive in India with his long term experience about the local peoples, customs religions and politics and also the agriculture and local life. All this whilst silky smooth driving us safely through many times chaotic traffic in cities highways and the winding narrow local roads - always with a smile and good humour.

Every stop we were met by your local friendly caring managers and the very knowledgeable local guides - the Jaipur guide JK was particularly outstanding with his knowledge and way of expressing things and also his sense of humour - we really enjoyed him and especially his advise that there are 485 different snakes in India and all found in one place - at the parliament in New Delhi !!

Also in Katmundu we were well cared for with good people especially our careful driver and extremely knowlegeable guide there.

All our hotels were all first class - especially the Samode Haveli in Jaipore staying with the Maharaj in his wonderful old palace - probably the most exotic room/suite that we have ever stayed in throughout our life long World travels. The Samode Palace was also very nice and also a good place to relax with a great modern swimming pool deck area set in its mountain backdrop.

Agra Wyndham Grand was also first class as well as the Soalter Crowne Plaza in Katmundu. But the Justa Residence hotel in Delhi also a first class boutique hotel with very friendly staff and good food.

Highlights of our trip

1) Ranthambhore National Park where we followed a big tigress up a stream only 20 to 40m away for almost an hour and the final charge at some grazing impala - she missed ! Having lived for 50 years in South Africa we have seen many wild animals but none as beautiful as this tiger.

2) Jaipur City with its bustling crowds and a kaleidoscope of vibrant colours of the ladies dresses plus beautiful old buildings and city walls and elaborate gates. .Next morning a ride up to the wonderful Amber Palace on elephants - a marvelous experience and the very interesting palace and fortifications. Then a visit to the historical observatory - most interesting.

3) Agra - Taj Mahal - just wonderful and the large fort visit.

4) Delhi with its very contrasting New Delhi colonial capital buildings, and Old Delhi with its magnificent Red Fort and the beautifl old Jama Masjid Mosque and the Qutab Minar tower built in 1199.
The bike rickshaw ride through the narrow alleys of Old Delhi was a most erotic experience of bustle sights and smells.

5) Katmundu - a great experience of old religious cultures - but much more polluted than India !
Highlight was the return flight to Delhi above the clouds and 30 mins flight parallel to the Himalaya's seeing Mount Everest, Annupurna and the other great peaks.

Wow what an experience and we will be back and certainly only using Central Tours of central India.

Thanks again.

 

 

10 Days India trip

Hi Devender,

We are finally "home sweet home" in the Napa Valley, California, from our wonderful, exciting India adventure, and we cannot thank you enough!

Our driver Keshav was absolutely the best!!! We could not have been more pleased! He was always on time, friendly and the most excellent driver. We rewarded him nicely and we will certainly request him again when we come back to India!

Every guide we had was fantastic. We loved being with each of your guides in every city - great English speakers, knowledgeable with lots of enthusiasm, showing us the beautiful sites! We appreciated everything! These were truly world-class guides who love their jobs!

Devender, we thank you so much for all your kindness and attention to detail. Our trip was perfect - and you can be sure I will be writing very good things about you and your tour company - both on your website and Trip Advisor. We will tell our many friends about your tours too!

The palace hotels were wonderful - and we got big upgrades to suites at the Rambagh Palace and the Nanargarh Palace. We also upgraded ourselves at the Shiv Niwas Palace to the big suite, with a balcony on the lake, in Udaipur. We were thrilled to stay in Palaces!

Don has been in the hospitality business for 40 years - and he was quite pleased with how beautifully you set up our trip, and how you made sure that we were happy every step of the way. That is quite a recommendation for you.

We are frequent global travelers, and we send you our sincere thanks for a world class trip!

All the best to you and your family!

Thanks again.

Devender,

Hello once more! Firstly we would like to send our grateful thanks for the gifts you gave us when we met in Agra. Secondly we also send our thanks for the quality of the service we received from all members of your company. The guides were very knowledgeable in all the locations although sometimes the number of details and dates they provided caused us (old) pair some mental indigestion! The standard of accommodation was very good everywhere.

The drivers were excellent, and in the case of Mr Shivpal Singh Jodha his local knowledge rendered guides almost superfluous!

Overall we had a wonderful tour if a little exhausting for oldies like us! We will be recording our impressions on the Tripadvisor web site and you and your team can be assured that our report will be very favourable.

Once again all our thanks and best wishes to you and your company.

Hi Devender,

The hotels were very good except for the Parkland in Delhi. The Gateway in Agra, The Fern in Jaipur, and Justa The Residence in Delhi were very nice. The Gateway is particularly pleasant.

The guides in Agra and Jaipur were also very good, as was Arun, our driver. I understand there was to be a guide in Delhi on our last day who didn't show up, but Arun managed very well.

We were particularly impressed with Qutb Minar, Jama Masjid, Humayan's Tomb, Taj Mahal, Itimad-ud-Daulah, Agra Fort, and the Amber Fort.

Overall it was a very interesting and lovely trip.

Thank you.

Hi Devender,

Back in Delhi now after our excellent tour of Agra and the Taj Mahal that  you arranged for us.
I'm sure many people considering the same tour would like to know that  everything about it was MORE than promised.
Our guide was courteous and informed, our driver excellent, our  accommodation 5 star and the organisation to the minute.
In this era of internet booking, with all its guesswork, our decision to  tour with you was a perfect one. We'll do it again.

Thank you,

Hi Devender,

We had a great time on our tour thanks to your very capable and kind staff. Special credit should go to Dennis for getting us around safely, making sure we had everything we needed, and being a generally great guy! We felt very well cared for.

Thomas in Wayanad was very knowledgable, had excellent English skills, was happy to adapt the tour plans to our requests, and made a special effort to make sure we saw what we wanted to see there. In conversation he held his own very well with my professor husband who really appreciated his insights.

Jeesu in Kannur did a great job getting us to an amazing Theyyam ritual, explaining what we were seeing, getting us behind the scenes to see the preparation of the performers, helping us communicate with the townspeople and performers. He also had excellent English skills.

Jay in Cochi gave us a good tour in the very little time we had available, managing to get us in & out of a lot of sites while giving good histor
