    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.

    Всем привет !!! С данной компанией познакомился через интернет, вышел на их сайт, потом связались по скайпу, пообщались, и решили рискнуть. Оплатили напрямую индивидуальный тур на 4-х человек (2 семьи). И не пожалели. Улетели в Дели 26.12.13, прилетели в Астрахань 12.01.14.Тур получился шикарный, очень интересный и очень познавательный.Мы совместили путешествие по 3-м индийским штатам (с индивидуальным гидом и водителем на комфортабельном авто), с передвижением так-же на местном поезде в дальние точки (в Кожурахо - в горд мёртвых храм Кама Сутры) с дальнейшим перелётом на Гоа на 5-ть дней и возвращением опять в Дели на один день , где напоследок посетили незабываемый по своей красоте, величию и масштабом храм Акшардам. Огромное спасибо компании "monks-n-monkeys", а в частности одному из руководителей Шараду за тот комфорт, за незабываемые впечатления, за ответственность кот. он нам предоставил. Отдельное спасибо нашему гиду Диду (Диджендеру) и , конечно-же несравненному водителю Раджу "Капуру", кот. водит машину просто как один из индийских богов. В общим всем желающим узнать побольше об Индии как о стране, а не просто прочесать пузо на пляже на Гоа рекомендуем тур компанию "monks-n-monkeys" Спасибо Вам Шарад, здоровья и удачи.
