I am a solo traveller, but this time I preferred travelling in a group, so I was searching the best group tour organiser. While, surfing on internet I came across Max Holidays group fixed departures, I could find everything which I wanted in a tour program within budget. With their tour programmes I could travel in group as well as have an experience as a solo traveller due to so many optional tours. The services provided were upto the mark. Thanx to the entire team of Max for providing such flawless tours.

Overall we were very pleased with our trip; however a couple of problems that was also sorted by the Max Team, at the earliest. First of all i would like to convey the feeling of satisfaction of all the group members if we consider services. The complete program designed by you made our trio very rich in information and so enjoyable. The guides were helpful and flexible; tour was full of so many optional visits at some of the destinations and kind of very interesting ones. The hotels quality was as expected upto the mark. I would like to thank the entire max team for their effort and wish to see you soon. I’m sure i will be coming again to India to discover more of India.
