Dear Mr. Deepak Sadotra, I wanted to thank for the great support and effort of Mr. Bhaskar Chakraborty. He made my parents really happy. During the trip of my parents in India organized by your organization they fell in love with a painting. However, they didn’t buy it. After their return I contacted your organization and asked whether it was possible to buy it and send it to Germany. Mr. Bhaskar Chakraborty replied and made the impossible possible considering the fact that they couldn’t remember for sure where they saw the painting. Now my parent tells all their friend and family about the great support of your organization and particularly of Mr. Bhaskar Chakraborty. Read more

Sandra & Sebastian Jaeger, Germany

Dear Indo-Asia-Team, Thanks for taking care of the organization and arrangements for our India tour from Delhi via Jaipur and Agra to Varanasi, which we booked through Gebeco. It was really a nice journey that we enjoyed very much. There was so much to see, experience and learn. We would also like to thank your Driver Vijay Talwar. We always felt safe when we were driving on crowded roads, inside and outside of cities. We were amazed at how Vijay always knew the way to all the places without any SatNav and - most important - without getting lost! We really enjoyed the days when he was our driver and we would love to have him drive us again as soon as we come to India again! Read more
