Manju Gupta , India

There are so many good points to talk about;a picnic lunch in a scenic paddy field, the trek to Tiger nest and the hot stone bath afterwards, the rafting and thevisits to the monasteries. It would be wrong if I said that I wasn't a bit hesitant to handover my money to someone I had never met. I am wary of tour agents who promise the world because they never deliver. But this was a very different experience. They delivered all that they promised and more. Our guide Mr MukeshBiswa catered to all our demands ( some very unreasonable) From the time he picked us up at the airport with a placard saying ' Saptrishi' to the time he took a detour for some last minute shopping , he made it all possible. We called him a genie...a name he truly deserved. I strongly recommend Ad Tours and Travels for their professionalism and passion. We were a group of seven middle aged women meeting for a reunion so you can understand how difficult a task they had at hand. But they achieved the impossible.. Read more
