    Hi I would like to take this opportunity to thanks Monks and Monkeys Travels on such a wonderful tour package that was customized for my mom and aunts travel to India and its other States.. It was an amazing experience that my mom and aunt would not forget.. I would like to single out the lady herself, Anju Malaviya, for going all out to satisfy my mom and aunt and meeting all there expectations.. From there luxurious hotels, to sightseeing, tour guides and travel arrangements between states. I was a bit skeptical at first as it was there first time traveling out of South Africa but Anju assured me they will have no problem and she will be in contact with them and keep me updated.. Lastly, I would like to thank Anju Malaviya for taking my late night calls and when I could not get through to my family, you got me in contact with them.. You truly showed true customer service in every sense.. I would definitely recommend Monks and Monkeys Travels to my family and friends and Anju Malaviya for being an incredible agent to us, you are an asset to you company in every way. Well done on such a great job...THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN!!! Regards Sidrah South Africa

    Having recently used Monks and Monkeys, I had reported that we had a bad experience at one of the hotels booked and had to leave that hotel and find alternate accommodation. It seems that the hotel Blue Bay may have also been misleading Monks and Monkeys in the type of accommodation being provided. Following that I am glad to say that the rest of the hotels were much better and Anju went out of her way to ensure that no further mishaps happened along the route and that our stay in India was an enjoyable one. As I am writing this my parents are still completing the last leg of their journey. . The fact that the MnM kept in touch with us went a long way in providing us the comfort that we needed in a foreign country. Although we were not able to recover the full amount of the accommodation I understand that MnM will ensure that they chance the hotel to recover the remaining funds. If I plan another trip to India I will consider using MnM again especially for the service provided by Anju. A few suggestions is to consider: 1) Ensure that you properly vet the hotels and ensure that hotels are confirmed well in advance 2) Check the journey times between destinations to make sure that misguided tourists (myself included) don't try to pack in too long journeys on one day with too small children. 3) We stayed in many hotels for one night along he route and this did not give enough time to appreciate what each town had, some advise to future travellers. 4) Check the facilities provided by the hotels and advise the client. Many hotels charged rates upto Rs500 for one days internet access. Had I know this I would have purchased a Sim Card to save on roaming rates and hotel internet rates.
