I recently had the privilege of embarking on a transformative Kailash Yatra tour with Max Holidays along with my mother and father from the US, and I can't praise them enough. From start to finish, their commitment to customer satisfaction was evident. The knowledgeable and friendly team at Max Holidays meticulously planned every aspect of the journey, ensuring a seamless and stress-free experience. The presence of experienced guides from Max Holidays enriched the journey significantly. Their extensive knowledge of the destinations and their ability to share fascinating insights and stories made the entire experience more meaningful. The weather was tough there, but Max Holidays team was there throughout with us! We completely understand the uncertainties in the weather during the Kailash Yatra and undoubtedly, we were informed about the same by their team. Good work Max Holidays! All three of us had the best time of our life while witnessing the Kailash Parvat right in front of our eyes. Throughout the trip, the Max Holidays team displayed professionalism and genuine care for every participant. Their prompt assistance and willingness to go the extra mile truly made a difference. From handling travel arrangements to providing assistance during the Kora trek, they ensured that each traveler's needs were met.

Frequent updates on itinerary to accommodate requests. Impressed with very quick upgrade of car and immediate response to change accommodation on last leg of the tour due to weather conditions. We would also like to highly praise and recommend the driver Dharmendra - his experience in driving round blind cliff edge hair pin bends is amazing. Our heartfelt thanks to Vishal for personally stepping in when necessary. To Vidhushi - Keep up the good work and many thanks once again- Har Har Mahadev.

We took the tour from 26Aug to Sept4. It was a wonderful experience.we were 10 in our tour and everyone came with different spiritual backgrounds. It was a full moon trip. Max holidays provided excellent service. They checked out oxygen levels and provided support when needed. Accommodations are shared and are reasonably good. Services such as porter can be improved but it is on the Tibet side. Food was provided by on site cooks who travelled with the group. Schedule changes could have been communicated better. Vidushi was excellent. Overall out trip was excellent.

The support from Max Holidays team before the tour was excellent. We received quick response from Vidushi every time I had any question or quarry. She was the best in communication and replies. The Nepal team of Max Holidays was exceptionally best to help and support us. Mr. Dorgee and Subhman were very helpful in any way they can do for us. I would like to thank from bottom of our heart to Max Holidays teams in Delhi and Nepal.
