Reviews for Sikkim & Kolkata cultural tour in India


review 29 Dec 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Taking a traditional, herb-infused hot stone bath outside overlooking the valley Driving on the roads was also either thrilling (the views) or terrifying (the conditions). Luckily our driver was highly skilled. Donít always expect seat belts by the way.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared to be welcomed enthusiastically. And remember to take warm clothes. It can get chilly up in the mountains.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely. Incomes are low and life is close to subsistence level. Staying with these families who share the financial benefits makes a significant difference to them.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Unique! Brilliant. Do it!!

Thank you Katherine. Having you and Sara with us was an absolute delight. We are happy to know that you took back beautiful memories from India, and left a positive impact locally. Regarding your feedback on seat belt, we had given instruction to wear it as part of our training. However, it seems a refresher training is required now. We will take care of that. Do visit us again :)
