    Someone asked about using Monks & Monkeys Travels. My wife and I used Monks & Monkeys on a recent trip to South India and they did a wonderful job. Monks and Monkeys Travels, responded to all my queries immediately and selected some excellent hotels for us during our visit. We had to make a few changes to our original itinerary and they helped us with it. I only good experiences from the agency and have recommended Monks & Monkeys Travels to friends who told me they are thinking of visiting India.. Their prices are very reasonable and the service is first class.
