Great locations in Kochi Thekkady, houseboat from Alleppey and our transfer driver and hosts were excellent. Chenganda was slightly less attractice, however the staff in each location were superb and unussually helpful. They truly made our holiday a wonderful journey.

Another excellent holiday - thanks to all! Our driver, Roy, was fantastic and the hotels were all great. The guides were also very informative. The whole trip ran very smoothly, even when we had to make last minute changes due to a strike in Cochin.

We wanted a relaxed but interesting holiday in Sri Lanka. You listened to our requirements and helped us to put together a private driver and guided tour which gave us a memorable and wonderful holiday. You organised the route giving us ample time to enjoy the wonderful scenery and way of life in Sri Lanka. The standard of the hotel was outstanding.

I found Western and Oriental extremely professional, very friendly and extremely knowledgeable in everything they arranged for us. The local representatives where generally good, but where the company, in my opinion excelled, was in London through Nikhil. Amazingly thorough and professional. It was a pleasure working with him and his team.

The trip was amazing, it exceeded my expectations. The hotels were all fabulous particularly the Samode, and the Raas. The Western & Oriental team in India looked after us very well and the entire trip went by with no problems. We travelled by cars, trains and planes and the representatives were always there to see us off and meet at each new city. It was a memorable time....

Just a quick email to say a huge thank you for all your help with our Indian holiday this month. We both fell in love with India and the package you arranged for us was wonderful with amazing hotels, first class guides and brilliant service and attention to detail.
The sights and sounds of the places we visited will stay with us for a long time and we will certainly use your company again (next year I hope!) and would be happy to recommend your company to anyone.
Many, many thanks

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in India, perfectly orchestrated by yourselves. We flew to Delhi on the 4th February and as soon as we arrived we were taken care of very efficiently by your local representative. We’d not been to India before so were a little nervous, but we need not have worried. The idea of the phone for emergencies was very reassuring. When we booked in July 2013 we went with your hotel recommendations … which were excellent. All the transfers between trains, hotels, tours etc worked like clockwork. Our driver, Nitin, was superb and we were able to sit back and enjoy the ‘road experience’ !
You managed to capture in our tour all the things we wanted for our first visit, even my husband’s request of something ‘Bollywood’. The show at the Kingdom of Dreams in Delhi the night before our return was great fun – and a very happy ending to our trip.
There is just one complaint ….we never saw a Tiger on any of our 3 Game Drives. Other people did, but luck wasn’t with us on this trip. Therefore we have a good excuse to return.
We look forward to organising something else with you in the future.

The holiday was excellent, the itinerary was spot on. In each destination the guides were excellent, we would have given them all 11 out of 10! Because of each of them and the way the holiday was arranged we felt we had a real flavour of India. We learnt so much and saw so much. We would recommend the holiday to anyone who wants to see India.

Fantastic from start to finish. In fact from before we went with the expert advise given and the time taken to identify our needs and requirements. Everything was done with attention to detail and extra little touches that made our whole trip so wonderful. I cannot recommend highly enough the quality and service that we have experienced by booking through Western & Oriental. Absolutely first class.

What a fantastic holiday arranged so successfully by Nikhil. We were quite apprehensive about visiting India but it was a holiday of a lifetime. The country is everything we had been promised - vibrant, colourful, dirty, welcoming, noisy, bustling, historic, unforgettable. The hotels were a perfect have. Thank you.
