"Experiential Travel Specialists that’s what my tour operators call themselves. And the q5 days they planned out for me, really justify this name. The way the entire trip was executed right from boarding and lodging to the tour-guide, birding, stake-outs, etc. everything deserves applause. I had the best time of my life here, capturing more than 500 different varieties of birds. My favorite places were Pangot and Chambal. The kind of colorful winged beauties this region has ...the stark difference between these two regions have...the mystical experience I had, was simply amazing. I would surely love to come back to Pangot once more. AMYRA SLOVAKIA, RUSSIA"

"I have been intending to write to give feedback as I wanted to thank you for a great trip. Firstly may I say how impressed I was that from start to end you were very considerate of my requests and the flexibility you showed when I made a last-minute request to change my itinerary was greatly appreciated. Secondly, my driver, Jaipal was courteous, helpful and whilst not a widely experienced birdwatcher, he sought to assist with finding many birds and indeed did successfully point several out for me. He was prompt and reliable and his driving ability and artful negotiation of the crazy Indian traffic impressed me and quickly put me at ease. My bird guides were terrific, very knowledgeable and experienced that undoubtedly enhanced my birdwatching experience. You may well be aware that prior to contacting you I was in negotiation with Sunil as he came highly recommended. However, as he could not cover all my trip he suggested I contact you as so I was so pleased when I discovered that he was to be my guide in the Himalaya part of the trip. Delver was also very skilled and ensured that I saw as many birds as possible. The guide in Agra was helpful and informative and worked conscientiously to ensure I enjoyed my visit to the cultural sites acquired the maximum from my time there. I was impressed with all guides and would have no hesitation in using them again. In my many travels, I have experienced good and bad guides and the guides that you arranged are clearly for me some of the best that I have had, thank you. In respect of accommodation, I was greatly impressed with Kaffal House/ Jungle Lore in Pangot. The staff was very helpful and amenable, the food fantastic and the location ideal. I could easily have spent more time here. The Mapple Hermitage Hotel in Sattal was nice but not as good as Kaffal House and I guess perhaps I had been spoiled with my Pangot experience! The food in all hotels and accommodation was superb and I enjoyed the meals which were varied and plentiful, sometimes too plentiful as I had put on a little weight!! Overall I enjoyed my trip and was able to focus on my birdwatching, confident in the knowledge that all other aspects such as transport, organization, accommodation, etc were well taken care of. I thank you again for a truly wonderful trip and I have no hesitation in recommending you to other people. I am seriously considering returning to India, perhaps to visit the northeast corner within the next 18 months if possible and so I am likely to be communicating with you again soon. -Gary Buckett"
Review by Gary Buckett for India Foothills Birding and Wildlife Tour
"While the animals, lodges, scenery, and culture were great, what really made the trip special was Jaipal and our guides – Ganesh, Bachu, and Shyam. Ganesh did a superb job in Pangot and Corbett. He is an excellent birder and showed us many nice species. Bachu did the same in Chambal. We had a lot of fun with Shyam who has great enthusiasm and knowledge. All of these guides were patient, kind, knowledgeable, and fun. But perhaps the best part of the trip was being with Jaipal. He has a unique combination of admirable qualities. He is professional, very attentive to our comfort and safety, kind, always on time, patient, and very knowledgeable of the complicated roads. We felt like we were traveling with a good friend for three weeks. We learned a lot about your beautiful country, especially that it is full of many kind, hard-working, and special people. You run a first-class operation and we will recommend it to all of our traveling friends. All the best, Mark Pretti and Karen Blumenthal"
