Easy Tours of India Reviews

Maryellen Gurnon and Marie Gurnon       March 2013

I recently returned from India. We had the time of our lives thanks to Easy Tours of India!
I cannot say enough good things about the service we received from start to finish. Booking was a breeze, you were so helpful and responsive to all my questions, responding in a most timely manner, always professional & prompt. Thanks to you and your staff, our trip was seamless. I have been in the travel business for 30+ years and have not encountered such superior service. You should all be proud of that, it did not go unnoticed.
Every detail of our trip was meticulously handled, and the staff we encountered, just phenomenal! Our facilitator was always in place, smiling and helpful....popping up like a Genie whenever we needed him! Our driver was so sweet and careful and such a great driver (in the land of maniac motorists). The two of them never left our sides in public, and we felt so protected and safe with them. Very good companions-we miss them.
I would be honored to recommend your company most heartily to anyone contemplating a journey to India. It was a pleasure to have traveled with you! REFERENCE AVAILABLE.

PRIVATE TOUR OF INDIA
Review rating: (5/5)
Al Martinez, Winner of 3 Pulitzer Prizes spent a month with Easy Tours in Dec. 2007.
Out of a lifetime of travel, both as a tourist and a journalist, I found India the best of all worlds. Its history is deep, its people lovely, its accommodations special and its scenery compelling. I recommend India to all, and Easy Tours of India as the best way to see and enjoy this marvelous country.

5 things not to do on a tour of Indiasuggestions by our founder - -    Read More

5 things not to do on a tour of Indiasuggestions by our founder. Close


1.
Do not use overnight trains. Actually, we recommend that you avoid train travel as much as possible. Most visitors to India are unaware of the extremely poor sanitation and hygiene in almost all of India’s trains. Railway lines through most of the country are surrounded by both animal and human waste and the flies and insects that fester there have the ability to get into trains, including so called First Class compartments.

Many of the gastro-intestinal issues that visitors to India experience occur as a direct result of train travel. The two most expensive components of a tour of India are lodging and travel between destinations, by flights or by road. By using overnight trains, price focused agencies are able to eliminate both these expenses, but subject you to very poor conditions. Rats and other vermin are also common on most trains.



2.
Do not accept itineraries that include stops at “handicraft centers” and other similar “artisan centers”. All of these lead to one thing – forced shopping. Price focused agencies include these as standard stops on itineraries because their primary source of income is the commissions that they receive from shops that masquerade as centers for artisans. You will often spend more time being sold very hard at these shops (with no opportunity for escape) and less time at monuments like the TajMahal. Premier agencies facilitating tours of India will guide you to quality “no pressure” stores if you want to shop for local handicrafts, but will not include such stops as standard.


3.
Do not book your sightseeing tours and domestic travel arrangements from lodging providers, including luxury hoteliers. Visitors often fall for a low room cost on such packages from hotel chains, and are then fleeced on costs for travel between destinations and excursions, and are subjected to low quality guides and facilitators. The better guides and accompanying Tour Directors do not work with hoteliers as they are unable to get consistent business like they do from a premier tour operator. India’s better hoteliers are specialists at providing an incredible level of hospitality; premier tour operators are experts at providing a high quality tour.



4.
Do not select fast paced tours if you really want to experience the culture of India. Try to schedule ample time in the larger destinations in India. Current tour itineraries all focus on trying to show you as many destinations as possible and don’t allow enough time to really experience any of the amazing monuments and experiences that are included. When we compare the time that a visitor gets to experience each component of a tour in other countries in Asia, tours of India fall far short in this aspect due to the large number of experiences available at each destination. Current tour itineraries really do not allow you for any cultural immersion.

Although Easy Tours of India designs our itineraries to minimize travel time and maximize experience time, travel in India is very time consuming, and we strongly feel the need to provide more time for cultural immersion to our guests. With this in mind, we are changing our small group tour offerings to include additional days in some destinations starting September 2015. Independent travelers will be able to select from these more immersive itineraries and our current faster paced tours.


5.
Do not base your planning solely on the advice of your Indian friends or people that have visited India in the past. We realize that this sounds strange but feel the need to point out the potential hazards. Let us give you a couple of examples.

Many of our guests, when they first contact us, ask for Goa to be included in their travel plans based on their Indian friend’s recommendation. While Goa is a charming coastal region, it has lost some of this charm during the last couple of decades as it has become a favorite party destination of youth from all over the world. Most beaches have a party scene where copious amounts of alcohol and drugs are consumed and most of the inland communities are full of businesses that cater to this clientele. There are luxury beach resorts in the Goa area that have a much more sedate environment and if beach time is your only interest, Goa is still one of India’s best destinations. But it is no longer what immigrants from India recall from their visits 20 or 30 years ago. The state of Kerala and the city of Kochi (Cochin), a couple of hundred miles south of Goa on India’s western coast, offer everything that Goa has to offer and have a much more organic culture and ambiance.

Some of our guests tell us they have no interest in Delhi because their friend who visited India did not enjoy it. This is a major error for anyone planning an exploration of India. Delhi has more UNESCO World Heritage Sites and more unique experiences than any other city in India. We know why some visitors develop a negative perspective on this amazing city. Most travelers land at Delhi late at night or very early in the morning and start their tour within a few hours, especially those arriving from the Americas after 20 to 30 hours of flights and stops. While they are experiencing severe jet lag and their internal clock is telling them they need to be in bed, their tour operator carts them off to Old Delhi. Old Delhi is an assault on the senses for most visitors even if they are rested, but it is also India’s greatest opportunity to really experience urban middle class India. The sounds, smells and the incredible congestion are the first thing the weary and jet lagged visitors experience and it surprises us that more of them don’t immediately ask to be put on the next flight back home.

We recommend that our guests arrive in India a day before they start touring so as to rest and acclimatize. We almost always start our Delhi sightseeing with the various attractions of New Delhi, much of which has broad, tree-lined roads and avenues that are relatively uncongested, as well as buildings and an ambiance similar to other world class cities. Only after this do we proceed to Old Delhi. Our upcoming itineraries will not take guests to Old Delhi until their second day of touring. We have never had a guest recommend skipping Delhi to the referrals they send us.

You can spend a significant amount of time researching your travels plans, which is something that many explorers enjoy. Please note that a lot of the information out there, both on the web and in print, is outdated and often incorrect. If you are going to use a premier tour company to facilitate your tour of India, select one that has real India specialists who can guide you and make recommendations. Such specialists should have travelled extensively in India themselves, and most of the large companies that sell the world do not have such specialists, despite their claims to the contrary.




By taking some time on this website you will be exposed to an incomparable wealth of information, selection and functionality. Alternatively, you could also call us, or click here, for our most popular tours of India.

A decade ago Easy Tours was the first company to offer luxury travel experiences in India on the internet. Although there are now thousands of companies doing so, we remain trailblazers by constantly evolving and improving our offerings.

Are you interested in India’s most interesting regional cuisine? Are you passionate about unique local experiences, India’s best golf courses, or its finest spas? Our guests can get expert recommendations and instant reservations.



Unique Local Experiences - Polo at 12,000 feet in the high altitude desert


Who is the best Tour Operator in India? The best tour can only come from an agency that starts with the premise that your time and your money are both very precious and neither should be wasted. We design and facilitate every itinerary while placing a premium on you getting the most for your time.

The best India tours cannot just include monuments, hotels, guides, and transportation. The other key ingredients are unique experiences, great value, local expertise and the highest level of personalized service. We are unmatched in these four categories.

The smart way to plan a tour of India is by letting our India Specialists assist you while you research and plan. Thousands of our guests have expressed gratitude for this service after they returned from India. You can also start by reviewing the web’s largest selection of unique experiences in India, or design your own tour, by clicking on the following links -



Slow Travel – we strongly recommend experiencing India at a slower pace than all the itineraries you will find everywhere. This does not mean that we are suggesting that you spend more time relaxing while in India, although that is definitely worth considering at some of the world’s most amazing hotels and resorts.

A number of destinations in India offer a lot more fascinating experiences than what existing itineraries offer. Current India tour packages have focused on offering the most destinations possible, and have sacrificed quality for quantity. We are changing that.

Slower Food – preparing really good Indian food has always been a time consuming art, just as it is with most cuisines. We are very conscious of the fact that discovering the culture of a country in inextricably linked with exploring its cuisine. In India this is taken to a significantly higher level because of the extreme diversity of regional cuisines. Yet we also realize that not every visitor is partial to Indian food and so the hotels, and other dining venues we select (including visits with chefs and cooking lessons) offer the very best that the region has to offer, as well as excellent western options (in almost all cases).



Athangudi Tile Crafting (presented by Easy Tours of India)


We are the premier boutique agency for luxury tours in India for many reasons, one of them being that we are the only North America based Agency with ten operations offices in India – most do not even have one!

Why are our own offices in India important? Because our expertise and local presence empowers us to offer the finest services at all three levels of luxury tours that we offer. Any agency can book a room or give you a guide or chauffeur. No one will provide you with the passion and care that our guides, chauffeurs and facilitators will demonstrate – compare our verifiable guest reviews with anyone.


We feel that India has more fascinating experiences than the next five nations on our planet together. Whether it be when you gaze closely into the eyes of a wise elephant, explore incomparable millennia old cities such as Varanasi or UNESCO Sites such as Hampi, Ajanta, Ellora, and Khajuraho, or take your guide’s recommendation and play in a game of football (soccer for some) or cricket or kabadi, with kids in a small village that you just happened to be passing through during your explorations.

Monuments and experiences also have the ability to touch most explorers – for example, any visitor (with even a trace of romance in their soul) will experience their heart skip a beat when they get their first real look at the Taj Mahal.

When most of our guests return from one of our India tour packages, they tell us about how passionate every Easy Tours staff member was about India and our company. How they were deeply committed to providing the best and most immersive experience possible. What this does also mean is that, if you are more interested in a sanitized and westernized tour of India like most luxury tour operators provide, we are not the company for you.



Dashashwamedh Ghat at Varanasi


India will be a good experience for you as long as you do not travel with agencies that sell based only on cheap pricing. The nature of the country and its people ensures that, even with organizations that do not focus on providing excellence at every level, and are thus, sometimes priced lower than Easy Tours.

Will any experience be close to what we provide? NO. Most organizations are not motivated by wanting to show you India as the amazing nation should be experienced. For example, independent travelers often ask us to design a tour of India that is too rushed, not realizing the realities of travel durations in India. Our India Specialists consult with the client and recommend that they either add more time, or reduce the number of destinations that they have selected. If the guest is unwilling to do either, we politely inform them that we are not a good fit for their travel plans. We do not want to facilitate travel if we are unable to provide the best experience possible. No other agency has this philosophy.

We design our package tours of India so to give you the most for your time, not just your money. We keep you away from distasteful experiences that are a part of most train and some road travel. Our India Specialists, Facilitators, Chauffeurs, Guides and Accompanying Tour Directors are passionate about India and will share their passion with you.



The Oberoi Hotel, Gurgaon


The experts in our Guest Relations & Operations Department’s, both in India and the United states, work together to give you amazing service from the day you first reserve, or request information from us. This continues all the way until you return home from your journey through India.

Our Small Group Tours of India are exquisitely planned & facilitated and are All Inclusive. Our Independent India tours include breakfasts and most include a few other meals, but all are facilitated for independent travelers and give you complete flexibility in orchestrating your exploration of India.

An incredible level of service begins when you first contact your US or India based Travel Specialist. Read some of our Verifiable Guest Reviews and compare them to ANY Company servicing ANY part of the world. While our guests are effusive about their praise for India and the hotels we use, what they rave about the most are our people. As the pages and pages of praise for our guides, chauffeurs, guest relations managers, and US and India based Travel Specialists will illustrate, our staff is unmatched in their level of commitment.



Alpha Male Tiger in Ranthambore National Park


Our website is an example of our commitment to being the very best at what we do. Please take the time to click through to one of the tour pages so that you can experience the amazing interface and incredible depth of information – this website is revolutionary in its simplicity and functionality.

The vast majority of Foreign Tour Operators do not have even one office in India - they are middlemen selling the whole world and marking up the price they receive from an India based company. They all have huge sales offices in the west or in Oceania. Most of the itineraries they advertise have errors in their descriptions and, to someone that knows luxury travel in India, illustrate how that they have very little knowledge of India.

We have 10 well staffed offices in India and we do not have to add additional mark-ups. Our large staff of dedicated professionals in India personally facilitates our guests' vacations and luxury tours of India.

The Specialists in our US and India sales & design departments only cater to travel in South Asia and are true experts. Each one of them spends significant time experiencing India about once every eighteen months - they use the same lodging, flights, vehicles and roads that our guests do - they visit the same attractions.



Humayun's Tomb, Delhi - UNESCO World Heritage Sight


There are budget agencies that have facilitated tours of India for hundreds of thousands over the last 10 years – we have barely crossed 16,000. Our boutique approach to travel does not allow for much than that and that is why over a third of our travellers are now repeat guests and referrals.

We start with the premise that your time and your money are both very precious & neither should be wasted. The experts in our Guest Relations & Operations Departments in India and the US work together to give you amazing service from the day you first reserve or request information, all the way until you return home from your luxury tour of India.

We then add World Class Service. From the moment that you are greeted by our Visit Facilitator or Tour Director, you enter a world of impeccable service and hospitality. When you journey through India with us, your biggest decisions are what places and experiences you'd like to spend your time exploring, and what cuisine you will want to savor on your next meal. Because of our unmatched local expertise, you get to see all that India has to offer without having to think about logistics.



Villagers in Andhra Pradesh


We have built the Best Relationships. We are preferred partners of the finest hoteliers in the world - The Oberoi Group (including the Trident Hotels) and the Taj Group (including the Vivanta and Gateway Hotels) both enjoy reputations that are the envy of every other hotelier on this planet - they both have received more Top 20 accolades (from western experts such as Travel & Leisure and Conde Nast) than any other hotel brand on earth. We are committed to almost exclusively using one of Asia's finest airlines, Jet Airways, unless they do not offer viable options for the relevant flight segment.

We offer the most diverse selection of lodging and services in India. You can choose from the finest luxury hotels to exquisite boutique hotels, from Grand Heritage Palaces to smaller heritage establishments. India's finest staff of expert Tour Directors & Guides will show you the best vantage point for the unusual photograph you seek, or the special restaurant that most tourists never hear about. A wide selection of immaculate late model vehicles is available to suit any preference for your journey through India.

Quality & exclusivity are standard equipment. Our Small Group Explorations have a maximum of 12 members; our average group size is 8. Both Small Group & Independent travelers can choose from 3 different levels of travel, ranging from fairly luxurious to almost decadent.

Guests interested in India vacations or theme based holidays can ask us to arrange just lodging and transportation, and then select from a menu of sightseeing and other options if they so desire.

We offer unique and imaginative itineraries. Unlike other tour operators who offer India tours with the same old tired themes and canned presentations, we offer unique and fresh perspectives that are designed with today's luxury traveler in mind. Read the brochures and /or websites of a few other tour companies. Observe how their India Tours all feel and sound the same. Then read a description of one or two of our tours in India.


School girls near Hampi, Karnataka


As most Foreign Tour Operators (including the top luxury outfitters) do not have a presence in India and rely on local agents in different Indian cities, if their India based agent suggests a change, these organizations have distinct command chains and thus they do not have the ability to be flexible so they can improve. An example of this is that most of the largest Tour companies in the US are currently showing luxury tour itineraries that include flights that were cancelled over two years ago. Instead of an hour long flight, their clients get an 8 hour drive and lose a complete day of exploring, but are only told this when they arrive in India, with an implication that the flight was just cancelled.

So called “Luxury” agents based in India tend to focus on offering the lowest price. They will find which 4 or 5 star hotel will pay them the biggest commission and design and quote a tour based on that. We base our hotel selections in India on the consistence of quality and the duration of drive time that you will experience during your activities at that destination. We feel that paying a little more to save our guests a couple of hours in drive time is well worth it. An example of the benefits is that you can leave for the airport at 7 am, instead of 6, for an early morning flight.

Other ways we value your time - one of the biggest differences between us and other agencies is that our recommended tours of India are based on you flying between most of your destinations in India, or driving where that is the least tedious and time consuming mode of travel. We do include very short train travel in some itineraries, when that is by far the best option, and can customize an independent traveller’s desire for more. We know the drives that offer great opportunities to experience and photograph amazing rural life, or natural scenery, and when these do not add too much time to a flight for the same journey, we facilitate your travel by road.



Tribal Women Visiting Jaisalmer


We specialize in all aspects of luxury travel in India, including trains like the Palace on Wheels, Maharaja Express, and the Deccan Odyssey. We believe that these trains will appeal to rail enthusiasts and to those that India is just something a on a checklist of places they have been. These trains have limited advantages (& luxury, despite their names) and a number of disadvantages. Unless you really love train travel, these experiences are also a poor value.

Besides the above mentioned expensive train tours, it is not a good idea for most foreign explorers to travel by train while in India. Many explorers planning an India tour have a highly romanticized image of train travel. This has been propagated by many motion pictures and other accounts, most recently by a movie called The Darjeeling Express. Take our word for it, these accounts are completely fictitious. In almost all train travel the sanitation is very poor, the hygiene in food options unsafe, and comfort is pretty much non-existent. Is it a very unique experience? Yes, it is. Is there a very good chance that you will suffer some stomach issues that will severely affect your India tour? YES, there is.

Experience more of the incredible culture of India, and less of India's limitations - India offers the richest & most colorful culture on this planet and its people are among the most gracious in the world. However, this ancient civilization also has a lot of facets that can be hard on an unprepared visitor - especially in terms of optimum utilization of your time, and the lack of proper sanitation / hygiene.

Time is not usually valued highly in India and most companies (including western tour operators that are middlemen depending on Indian agents) design travel itineraries where you waste a significant portion of your time in uninspiring and inefficient travel, often because this allows the agent to offer a lower price.

If you follow our recommendations on travel, you end up avoiding wasted time and poor levels of sanitation. This enables you to spend more time experiencing, exploring and relaxing at your destinations. Click here to learn more.



Monkey Business


We save you money. Luxury tours of India cost less with us, unless you are comparing us to agency’s that don’t really know what true luxury is. Compare us to the other reputable companies that offer luxury travel in India. No one offers the value we offer. If you find a less expensive India tour, there will be many good reasons why it's cheaper.

You are the boss! You determine the priorities. It's your time - you decide what to do. Most activities during our India Tours are elective, and you can even opt out of most excursions when you are on one of our exquisitely planned Small Group Tours of India.

There is a severe shortage of good hotels in India during the peak tourism season and availability can be slim. We have the relationships to secure the better rooms when others can't, thereby making your India tour a better experience. It is fairly common for

No one offers the vehicle choices that we do. Most so called luxury Tour companies only offer the vehicles we offer at our First Class Level. We include two levels of automobiles above that, starting with a Japanese Crossover and moving up to larger vehicles of Japanese and European origin.

We do not cancel our Small Group Tours. Guaranteed! Every month we are contacted by people whose upcoming group tour of India was just cancelled. Almost all agencies do this if they are unable to sell 70 or 80% of the number that they had projected over a year ago. North America’s premier worldwide luxury Group Tour Operator did this on almost a quarter of their departure dates in 2013.

We will operate a group tour even if we only have one guest shows up. The exception would be a very obvious incidence of force majeure. To put it into perspective, we have not cancelled a single departure (out of almost one thousand) in 10 years.

We respond quicker than anyone else. When you send us an inquiry. When you have questions or concerns. When you have special needs arise while you are on a tour of India. When you sent in your inquiry, or a follow up question, which tour agency responded faster than the others? Are you OK with waiting a few days every time you have a question or a concern?

E-mails get to India pretty much instantaneously and calling there is pretty much the same as calling locally. If you are on an India Tour and have an emergency, would you like to count on the agency that takes two or three days to get back to you?

Easy Tours of India is a socially active enterprise. We support a few carefully chosen (local and international) charitable organizations. We are conscious of the fragility of our environment, and aggressively pursue policies of conservation and preservation throughout our operations.

Your comfort is of utmost importance to us, and we treat you like royalty by making sure all your needs are taken care off while you are on one of our Luxury India Tours. You have the option to take any of our India Tour Packages by yourself, starting on any date you choose, and you can build your own India Tour.

There's no rushing from one tourist attraction to another. The discriminating traveler has a vast array of choices. Select & combine India luxury tours ranging from wildlife tours, to horseback rides in the fabled desert of Rajasthan, to a cruise on the incredible backwaters of Kerala.

We offer luxury tours
to India & South Asia only. Other companies offer India tours along with tours to every other country on this planet, then leave you at the mercy of local travel agents at each location. Unlike them, our India tours include personalized service because we have large operations offices in the main tourism destinations of India.

You're not risking your money. Unlike India tour agencies based in India, your payments and deposits are protected, and are refundable as per the terms you agree upon at the time you decide to tour India with us.

You get more for your money. All our India tours are excellent values. Our Opulent Level tours of India exceed the best our competition has to offer. They are exquisitely planned and offer the ultimate in service, lodging and dining.

Be pampered in Palaces & other boutique hotels. We invite comparison on any grounds, and the hotels we use are an example of that. You'll stay at the best hotels in the world on our luxury tours of India, and we invite you to compare them to what our competition has to offer in their India Tours. Our guides and other staff are also the best that you can find, and they are trained to satisfy the most demanding guests. When it comes to package tours of India, no other agency has the talent that our staff has.

Now that we have time to catch up, I want to thank you and Easy Tours of India for an unforgettable trip.  We could not have asked for a better tour company.  You exceeded our expectations. We certainly feel that we got what we paid for and more.  The tour guides were wonderful as were the drivers.  In every city we were greeted by a representative from that city to make sure everything was as we expected.  Guest Relations calls were an added bonus. Thanks again. REFERENCE AVAILABLE.

Mr. Adam Benjamin Hirsch / Ms. Dana Ashley Pomerantz Hirsch.       Jun 10

I'm writing on behalf of myself and my wife who recently took a personalized trip with Easy Tours of India. I would just like to give a few comments about how amazing the trip was. From the moment we landed in Delhi until the moment we left, we felt like we were VIP guests that were taken care of in every way possible. All of the activities were a lot of fun, and every tour guide we had knew so much about India and gave us a different perspective that we felt that we came away with a much greater understanding of the country than we originally had.
I also want to point out one tour guide that really stood out, our Agra guide. From the minute we met him we hit it off with him and his warm personality. He immediately became our personal photographer and posed us in all different places around the Taj Mahal, the Black Taj, and the other sites in Agra. We were able to get so many great photos of myself and my wife thanks to him. As he gave us the tour, he would give us a little time to sit and think about all of the information he was providing, and was always quick to answer questions.He knew the answer for every single question we could throw at him, and never made us feel stupid for asking anything. His personality was also greatBy the end of our two days in Agra, we had become close friends. He also told us so much about Indian culture and Muslim culture that we were curious about. He made sure that Agra was the highlight of our time in India. While the city of Agra and the sights of the Taj Mahal were beautiful, he made Agra so amazing for us. As we recommend Easy Tours to every single person we know of that would like to go to India, we will also recommend him for anyone's stay in Agra. He is a great asset to have with Easy Tours, and you are very lucky to have him.
Again, the trip was unbelievable, and Easy Tours really was everything we had hoped it would be. Thank you so much for everything, and we will happily recommend Easy Tours to anyone we know of who would like to travel India with a great tour company. REFERENCE AVAILABLE.

Mr. Joseph Countryman       Jan 09.

I had a fantastic trip in January 2009. My drivers and guides were the very best. Humble, knowledgeable and above all concerned that I have the best trip of my life! I never dreamt that a one person tour group would get such outstanding service. They told me I was the Maharaja and they meant it. I am not used to be treated like royalty but after two weeks I started to get used to it!!
Your staff was just outstanding. Meeting me and assuring everything is perfect. I felt like part of the India family and I will never forget your competence, your attention to detail and your kindness. I am telling everyone that will listen that Easy Tours of India is the BEST tour company in the world and a GREAT BARGAIN. Please feel free to publish this and list me as someone to contact.
Thank you again for a wonderful experience. REFERENCE AVAILABLE.

We are back and recovered from jet lag and finally able to reflect on what was a truly great trip and wonderful experience. The trip was well thought out and provided multiple highlights.  Arpita did a great job and called several times to check our progress. Raju, our driver from Delhi thru Jaipur, is a warm and good person. The hotels were exceptional and the service was at a very high level. Thank you for letting the hotels know that it was Robin’s birthday.  It made the trip very special for her.

Easy Tours did a wonderful job. The whole time we kept saying to each other, "Easy Tours is so great." Everything went like clockwork . Everyone bent over backwards to give us the best service . The guides were highly intelligent, knowledgeable and patient. I felt safe at all times, except on our drive to Delhi. Theresa worked hard to arrange getting us to an orphanage we needed to visit near Trichy, as well as adding in experiences that might interest us. We would especially like to commend our first driver, Logan. His level of caring really added to our trip experience.

Our honeymoon trip to India, organized by Easy Tours was absolutely incredibly. My husband and I are both experienced travelers, but knowing this was our honeymoon, we did not want to have to think and simply enjoy the people and the site and the culture. And thats exactly what Easy Tours offered -- we literally did not have to think about any planning! We were always greeted at the airport with a representative, quickly taken to our car and hotel. Since he chose to put a lot in a short time, we had the flexibility with each tour guide to tweak the day, some days we were more tired so opted to enjoy the hotels for longer portions. The hotels were STUNNING. True luxury at its finest. We are very grateful for this opportunity and would be happy to recommend Easy Tours to anyone -- because it is Easy!!!

We had a great time on this tour of India. We especially liked talking with the guides and learning about Indian culture from many different views as each guide had a different perspective. Easy Tours made everything work efficiently and reduced our concerns. When British Airways misplaced our luggage (and that of thousands of others) the Easy Tours representative in Mumbai was particularly instrumental in leading us through the back areas of the airports luggage logistics to retrieve our bags which had been sent on from Delhi to our stop in Mumbai five days later.

Sites were remarkable and memorable. Transiting was lengthy and always exciting. Our drivers were excellent and we felt quite safe. Mr. shyam our driver for 6 days was very attentive and I hope you use him for many of your other clients. He did know quite a bit about great shopping opportunities and did save us $$. All guides were well informed. Our guide in Agra was quite passionate and we enjoyed him most of all. Hotels were exceptional, and we were treated like royalty!

Our guides and drivers were wonderful. The tour, as planned was about the ultimate for the time we had in India. Only one miscommunication occured - we expressed a preference for vegetarian, but including seafood, at the places Easy Tours arranged for our meals. Somehow in one place this translated to strictly vegetarian and in another place, seafood was interpeted to mean only from the ocean. Not a complaint - just a mention.

It was a dream come true! I really enjoyed the tour, the people I met, the incredible things I saw and the wonderful well mannered and caring people from India. I have traveled extensively, I consider myself a real gobble trotter, I have participated in a lot of tour company groups but nothing like Easy Tours of India!
I arrived sick, really sick, the medications I brought with me didn't work, I called two doctors at two different hotels, they sure made the difference! They changed my antibiotics, gave me 5 more medications including an anti-allergic one and made me feel better enough, that with some effort on my part, I was able to enjoy and finish the tour.
Ali our guide was sure a gentleman... WOW! he has so much patience he could be a teacher! the gentleman driver was so pleasant and caring, especially when he noticed I was feeling so bad.
I am already planning to go back to visit South India and this time I do not plan to be sick at all.
I love India!
Specially the hotel in MUMBAI, they were the best, they took care of me really well, gave me an upgrade of a beautiful room, let me check out at 8pm and gave me free internet access. They were so and so sweet caring and nice I felt my heart broken when I said goodbye...
Chandni always called concerned about my health, thanks CHANDNI!

Bus transportation SHOULD definitely have a daily seat rotation of guests. Some people always have to be on first and grab the front seats. The rickshaw ride in Varanasi I felt was a little dangerous. Wish our guide would have given us times and more details a couple days ahead and then kept reminding us. We had a Lauren in our group that should have been on a different type of tour. She kept giving to beggars and going off on her own and was most upsetting for our guide. He is responsible and she made life misserable for him.

Chandni, we are back safely and had a great time and will definitely travel with your company again. I wanted to take the time to write to you to let you know what a superb experience we had at the Marwah’s home. They were very warm and welcoming, so eager to teach us about Indian cooking and customs. We have done home visits in many countries and this one was by far thefinest experience.

We had a wonderful time. Your company made it very Easy to navigate the hustle and bustle of India. Our guide in India, Abid Ali, was superb. He was knowledgeable about all aspects of Indian life (culture, art, history, religion, traditions, etc. He was very open when we asked him personal questions about his family and their traditions and beliefs. Our guide in Nepal, Vejay, was also wonderful. He adjusted our tour slightly, to accommodate our needs. His knowledge of the history, religion and traditions of the country was excellent. He had answers to all of our questions. I cannot say enough in this small area to adequately compliment your operation for running an absolutely first class trip. India would have been impossible to tour on our own. From the ceremonies at the Ganges, to the glamor of the palaces, to the splendor of the Taj Mahal, we were exposed to the many faces of India. The sensory overload of the traffic, congestion, horns, garbage, food was so overwhelming in the beginning. But it became just the way of life after a while.. As the traffic is so wild in India, our lives were in the hands of your drivers who were very competent. We were grateful for their expertise. Our trip was a wonderful experience. I have been telling people that it was not a vacation but an education. You are never too old to learn! I now want to read up more on the history and religions of India. Thank you Easy Tours for making it easy!


Al Martinez, Winner of 3 Pulitzer Prizes spent a month with Easy Tours in Dec. 2007.
Out of a lifetime of travel, both as a tourist and a journalist, I found India the best of all worlds. Its history is deep, its people lovely, its accommodations special and its scenery compelling. I recommend India to all, and Easy Tours of India as the best way to see and enjoy this marvelous country.
