“Gets Holidays arranged a very 13-day trip for my friend and I to tour different places in South India. They were able to accommodate the places we wanted to see in South India (Tamil Nadu). They arranged nice hotels for us to stay in, had a nice safe driver who drove us to places we wanted to see, and arranged an overnight stay on the houseboat. Everything was well arranged and someone from the company was checking with us daily to see how out trip was panning out, and if we were enjoying our trip. My friend and I enjoyed our stay in the hotels they had chosen for us, and I would use them again if I plan to travel to India again, and would definitely recommend them to friends.”
