The highlights for me were our tiger safaris, for which I feel very privileged and will never forget. In total we saw 6 tigers, a pretty good score. In Jim Corbett we had 2 safaris and saw 2 tigers on the 1st safaris. Thank you very much for organising such an excellent trip for us. " — Mr and Mrs Kirby, Dorset UK, April 2019

There have been several within our group who have either never travelled or had limited travel experience.

Andrew has responded to these numerous request with the utmost professionalism. If I was asked to give a rating to Andrew's performance it would be without a doubt 10/10!

It all made for a perfect holiday." — Kerri and party, Mackay, September 2018

"We loved Rajasthan, the incredible warmth of the people and the jaw dropping sites. We really enjoyed Jodphur - great ambiance. At the Marigold hotel- we were the only guests and so had the wondrous balcony area and a really lovely room. The manager and his staff were great and the stay turned into a real highlight of the trip. Udaipur was a highlight and the Palace Hotel a joy. We will always rave about our stay at The Exotic Hotel Marigold." — Veda and Lynda, Cairns and Auckland NZ, November 2018

"We had a fabulous time. The guides were fantastic, respectful and knowledgeable. All of our accommodation was great. Our group felt very comfortable and safe the whole trip and any request was not a problem. To sum up: Delhi – crazy traffic, fantastic sights and mix of culture’s. Agra & Taj Mahal – breath taking and such an awesome sight of Engineering for its period. Jaipur – mix of new and old and steeped in history – hot air balloon over countryside seeing villages and locals starting their day with big smiles as we slowly glided over their rooftops. The tour was well organised, and we were kept up to date with everything that was on the Itinerary, and if we wanted to slightly change anything i.e. shopping, this was accommodated with no hesitation. I would certainly recommend anyone to go with Get about Asia tour to India, very worthwhile. " — Robbyns and party, Brisbane, September 2018

We went to a Sikh temple in Delhi that was absolutely fascinating,& touring the kitchens was a particular highlight for me. The tour guides were all great & we were particularly lucky to have Rishab travel most of the way with us. He was extremely caring for our well being & a bit sad when we had to part.

Again our drive Anil is outstanding and your office in India is above expectations. " — Mr. Patterson, Gold Coast, February 2018

"The trip was excellent. Always someone to meet us and we did enjoy the company of the two drivers we had in Rajasthan and Kerala – the length of time enabled us to form a friendly relationship. We loved the Marigold hotel – and I had no idea it was in such a small village. We had a couple of gin and tonics whilst they put the first movie on for us – Rob had not seen it before. The guides were good – and did all they were meant to do. There was fascinating history of intrigue, wars, conquerers and the destruction and rebuilding of palaces and temples Hard to think of highlights – as everywhere was so different. The differences between Rajasthan and Kerala was very marked – but both equally fascinating, and very enjoyable. One of the highlights must have been the tiger in Ranthambore though. Thanks again for the organization." — Mr and Mrs Harris, Adelaide, December 2017

"Absolutely fantastic experience we ever had in this unique, diverse, exciting country India. Every guide and driver needs to be congratulated. Loved all our accommodation, selection of restaurants, tours, etc. - extremely well planned. The Marigold Hotel was our highlight, we had the best time there. Every toilet on all our tours was very clean and western, the food was amazing (we stayed with vegetarian options and had absolutely no regrets). We will returning perhaps next year to a different place, and we will definitely use your services again!" — Collen and Sean Caulfield, Adelaide, October 2017

"We would recommend this tour, with maybe a little more time in Agra and Ranthambore to have another go at spotting those elusive tigers! It was well organised, with someone there to pick us up straight away at airports, hotels, etc. and our minibuses were comfortable and spacious. The drivers were good despite some very difficult conditions and the local tour guides were good and sometimes amusing. " — Mrs and Mr Springle & party, Kallista VIC, March 2017

"I had the absolute privilege of being on the GetAboutAsia and Remember Forever Photography tour of India in March this year. While the photographic opportunities were plentiful and varied, due in no small part to the masterly guidance of Luke Ballard, it was the immersion into the culture and daily life of India that I found so rewarding.
