I am fond of adventures. Max has landed me to a perfect destination for quenching my thirst for adventure. The trekking activities in Ladakh have been mind- blowing. I loved the ladahkis there. They lived a very simple life and looked really happy and satisfied from that one too. Thank You Max Holidays. I enjoyed your company."

Hello Sanya, hope you are doing great. It was such a wonderful trip and thanks to you for arranging it so well. Starting from arriving in Cochin till our departure, everything was so well organized. Exploring scenic places such an Munnar and Thekkady, staying on houseboat, spending time on white sand beaches was just few highlight of the trip. Our driver Ramesh is a down to earth person with so much of patience. We will definitely come back to India and in our wish list, next place would be visiting Ladakh on bike which I hope you do organize.

We are in contact with Max Holidays for the last 17 years and have done many trips with them. They are one of the most professional set of tour operators, working under a good system in their office. The team is awesome as they are capable of dealing with almost every situation. Not only Rajasthan, Ladakh, Sikkim but we also travelled with them to Mt. Kailash in 2018 where we felt their strength to perform in adverse conditions. Hats off to their efforts and kudos to the team of the Company.
