"Sorry for sharing my feedback so late as after reaching home I got occupied in some important work. I was so amazed receiving your e-mail on the day we returned back to home. Talking about our recent India trip, it was a well-organized trip and I really appreciate Mr. Amit for taking care of our trip and listening to our requirement. Sometimes, I really felt bad for you as I modified my tour schedule numerous times but you patiently acted on our recommendations and planned trip to Rajasthan which also includes our visit to Pushkar during Pushkar fair. Everyone in my family and friend circle who joined us on this trip were pleased with your services.. I would definitely recommend you to everyone who wish to travel India and are looking for a reliable tour operator in India. Thanks to everyone for taking care of us and special thanks to Mr. Amit..
