“From the moment I contacted GeTS Holidays I knew I was in good hands. Yogranda was so helpful (I believe we had over 40 emails in all). He was so helpful and wanted to make sure that my husband and I got the holiday we wanted.

We had a fantastic holiday from the moment we arrived in Cochin. Our driver Shoukath was excellent. All of our hotels were great especially our hotel in Thekkady the Poetree Sarovar Portico and we thoroughly enjoyed the Tea Plantation visit in Munnar. Plus the Periyar Tiger Reserve - what a special day. We finished our tour with 3 relaxing days at the Flamingo Boutique Villa, such a special boutique hotel.

We found the services of GeTS Holidays excellent throughout our tour and stay excellent. I would highly recommend this company to help you design your tour of India every time.”

“Dear Ritu,
When we left India at Delhi we were transported to the airport by driver arranged by Gets Travels. At that time we gave him a evaluation form for our time in India that we had filled out. So you should have our responses Generally speaking we had a fantastic time.

The transfers were timely, we loved our driver/guide (Jo Jo). He was very helpful and found interesting little things to see and do along the way. Great guy. We thought the hotels were superb and location perfect Loved the houseboat experience. Perhaps forewarn travelers that there may be extra activities or costs while on the boat The train experience was very good. We had some long stretches between meals on some days. Prepare travelers to carry snacks...

Thanks for preparing a great itinerary and suggesting that we go to Kerala as well as experiencing the train.

Sharon Mander and friends”
