“If you want to plan a trip to India, we strongly suggest planning the trip with GETS HOLIDAYS. We just came back from a three week trip to Rajasthan that we put together with GETS. They helped us build the itinerary and time frame. We had one driver for the three weeks, and different guides in each city. Our driver, Om, was not just excellent, he was fabulous!! He was timely, careful, personable, and accommodating. Driving in India is a daunting task, but he made it look easy. Om knew the roads inside out and never got lost.
He kept the car filled with snacks and bottled water. The guides from each city were knowledgeable, engaging and personable. They were all fluent in English, and some of them spoke French as well. Other languages are available. In addition, there was a greeter from the company at each hotel, to welcome us and make sure all was going smoothly. Every day someone from the main office called us to ask about the guide, the visit, the hotel , and wanted to know if there were any problems. There was flexibility in planning and GETS helped us make some changes in our plans as the trip progressed. It was reassuring to know that someone from the company was always available.
GETS chose beautiful and luxurious hotels in or near the cities we visited. We felt like visiting royalty. Indian hospitality is incomparable. We received turbans, little ceramic elephants, complimentary drinks and special snacks, welcome music, and special attention. The most unusual experience for us was the Damodra Desert Camp in the Thar Desert. There are ten luxury tents complete with bathroom and shower. The stay includes a camel trip in the dunes, watching the sunset in the desert accompanied by musicians playing exquisite Indian music and dancing, dinner and a show.
The maître d’ Mr. Nereyan saw to our every need and welcomed us as if we were entering his own home. He spoke to each guest individually and got to know them. When we left he gave us a souvenir of our stay: a beautifull little ceramic salt and pepper shaker in the form of a camel. Our itinerary included – Delhi,Agra, Jaipur, Pushkar, Udaipur, Ranakpur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Bikaner, Mandawa and back to Delhi. Thanks to GETS we learned a lot about Rajasthan and India in general. My wife and I highly recommend GETS as the company to organize your visit.”
