    I know I am pretty late after my holidays in submitting my feedback, maybe I need another holiday. Just to say that we had a great time in Kerala in visiting the various places. The arrangements made through your company with Anju Malavia were excellent and were as promised. Just a few pointers in that care should be taken when arranging visits on places of interest in that for us as muslims to have seen more of islamic history with other sites as optional. Also for the driver to be aware of where the mosques for prayer time are as well halaal eating places. Also experiencing the windy roads and travel time a +-70km per day should be considered from destination to destination in order for it not to be so hectic. Overall I would not hessitate to book another holiday through Anju nor have any problems referring others through you.

    I went to Rajasthan and Varanasi from Oct 2014 to Nov 2014 for 16 days, on a private tour (with a driver). It was all arranged by Monks and Monkeys Travels Private Limited, through a girl named Kiran by email. Arrangement was done well, from driver, to train tickets, to hotels, to pick up and transfer from airport and train station. No problem at all. I will use this company again if I go to India again.
