"Taking care of one's group is great. But helping people of other group is greatest. This we found in Vishal of Max Holidays. When our tour operator, Nepal Pilgrim Travels, Mylapore, was nowhere to be seen and who had left us high and dry, it was Mr. Vishal who helped us a lot. Stranded at Hilsa on 3rd July and when some of us were ill he brought in his team doctors immediately and assured us that we would be taken care of. We have all decided that in future our travels would be with Max Holidays. One can be sure that he/ she is in safe hands."

"Om Namah Shivay ! Har Har Mahadev ! It was divine! It was mystical! It was magical! And the best part, it was safe, comfortable and very smooth journey to Mount Kailash Bhole Baba ! Yes. That was the reaction of my father when he return back to home on 4th July from Mansarovar yatra."
"Not only is the divine aura of Mount Kailash awesome, but also the scenic views as well as the very beautiful backdrop at each and every destination here is remarkable. I have never been to a hilly area before and Max Holidays made my very first experience amongst the hills a very memorable one!"
"I always had a dire wish to have some Darshan of Mount Kailash and Lake Mansarovar, I would like to thank Max Holidays for the same. It is the result of their continuous efforts and highly satisfactory assistance that I was able to be a part of the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra without any hassles. Glad to have the team of Max holidays by my side every time I wanted their help."
"Always heard that Mount Kailash is one of the most revered peaks in Asia, but I never believed the same. With the same intention, I decided to undertake this trek and as a result, I can undoubtedly say- ‘I am also a firm believer of this peak now’. Mentioning about my tour operator Max Holidays, each and every member of its team did a great job! They are very knowledgeable and know every small thing about the trek to Mount Kailash."
