"I travelled with my mother to Kailash-mansarovar on 11days Heli-Kailash tour of ‘Max Holidays’ in July’18...I am happy the way Max team handled our entire journey... Specially Mr. Prince Bedi who extended his helping hand at every point during booking and then while traveling with us to Kailash. He calmly n patiently handled all our queries and was making sure to provide a safe n secure environment for women travellers like us (In our Grp we were 5 solo women traveller). The journey like this needs lots of preparation, manpower management n paperwork. Max holidays paperwork in terms of all required permits was perfect and we didn’t face any issues regarding same. Thank u ‘Max Team’ -Mr. Prince for making this journey successful for us."

"I along with my husband and two sons participated in the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra’s Helicopter tour from Kathmandu. When I communicated with your team, I was highly impressed by the way they greeted us and also guided us about the whole tour and that was the time when I decided to seek their assistance for the holy Kailash Yatra. You guys worked really well and I surely enjoyed my days with you."

"Few things command more respect than hard work, integrity, dedication and the ability to follow through. These are among the many attributes we experienced from start to finish after completing our trip to Kailash Mansarovar with this travel agent. This travel agent is an excellent listener and pays attention to every detail; a lost quality in today’s world.
Although our itinerary took us to one off the beaten path village of locals, our agent managed to coordinate every aspect of our trip. The choice of guides were perfect for us. They were all skilled and reliable. The vehicles were always clean and stocked with water, and in some cases snacks for us to enjoy. Safety was never a concern.
Our agent's recommendations for hotels and accommodations were spot on and extraordinary. I am a big believer in managing expectations and I must say that thanks to this agent, his years of experience and wonderful demeanour and disposition, our 12 days journey to Kailash Mansarovar was significantly exceeded all of our expectations. Selecting a travel agent and advisor can be frustrating and even dicey at times. Not in this case. We could not be more pleased with every component of our yatra and must give this agent, the tour company, the highest marks possible. Thank you!!!"

"We 04 passengers me, my parents and my husband travelled together to Shiva’s home with Max Holidays and we had an amazing experience. I agree that there were many things not in their hand during this yatra such as …. flight operation, weather condition, accommodation in Similkot …... Hilsa and during trekking etc. but I appreciate the way they handled the situation….. As a traveller I have spent almost 170k per person and of course I want upto the mark services because in 170k I can explore the whole Europe with all good facilities. But this is not a leisure trip … this is a pilgrimage to the homeland of Lord Shiva and who said to meet SHIVA is easy …… at the end …. Great job done by the team of Max holidays.."

"Dear Ms Vidhushi,
I write this note as a token of appreciation for the way you handled Guruji's (Mr. Bhopal) trip to kailash Mansarovar. Our interactions in your office were not only comforting but made us feel confident that Guruji would be well looked after. Your suggestions n attention to the minute details in his travel itenary were a source of great encouragement to his followers as Guruji was traveling alone.
Please accept our heartfelt thanks for making this trip so memorable. Wish you all the very best in life from all of us."

"We, a group of three people undertook the sacred the pilgrimage to Kailash Mansarovar on 6th of May. We were a little tentative to begin with since we had a terrible experience within a travel agent the year before.Our Yatra was via Nepalgunj-Hilsa-Taklakot route and we had a helicopter ride from Simikot to Hilsa.
At the outset I must say it is extremely difficult to provide any kind of service in the terrain and the atmosphere that one tackles there not to mention that one has to travel across three countries which makes it not just tedious but cumbersome as well. Add to that the weather can be inclement and can disturb even the best logistical planning that one may have done."
