Dear Nilesh. I have just returned from the Colouricious Kashmir holiday. Could I thank you and your staff, not only for a wonderful holiday, but for all the rearrangements you made when we could not go to Srinagar. This must have involved a great deal of hard work and I wanted you to know how much we appreciated this. You were not obliged to do this and we were very grateful. ​ We had a wonderful time in Jaipur and, as always with your company, everything was so well organised. ​ ​ Could I also take this opportunity to thank Amrik. He was amazing. His skill, his patience and professionalism, his concern for all of us and his calm demeanour meant that we all had the utmost confidence in him. This made the holiday a great pleasure for all of us, despite the change of plans. He maintained his good humour at all times and provided a wealth of information whenever we needed it. Thank you again to you and to all your staff. Please give my best wishes to Isha and I hope she is well. Above all my thanks and best wishes to Amrik. Your sincerely ​ Jill Jordan (Margaret Jordan) Read more

M BEAU J'ai découvert Tanirikka par hasard sur le web. Bien m'en a pris. Organisation impeccable, excellent choix des hotels et du circuit. Notre formule: deux personnes, une voiture et un chauffeur. Hyper pratique pour sortir des sentiers battus.​ ​ Merci Tanirikka, Matthieu et Mouneen.

Hello! ​ ​ After a few days of rest from the wonderful Gujarat trip Colouricious offered, I would like to take a moment of giving some feedback. ​ ​ Gautam was an excellent host/coordinator and expert on our trip. He has a unique ability to communicate with anybody, the Rabari nomads on the road, the British ladies, a small country Muslim community and more. He has built up many excellent relationships with so many people and it makes the trip more interesting. His pace of instruction and points of interest were spot on. ​ ​ There are so many memories, thankfully caught by camera to remind me of this trip. ​ ​ Here are but a few:​ ​ . seeing the nomads on the road, with their children and tables on their camels . going to a small encampment of travellers where children were making beaded bracelets (great skills actually) . Seeing a cotton factory and talking to the owner!​ ​ . Seeing a tribal dance at the Rann Riders and looking at the women's dress and jewellery . Seeing bells made and seeing a small community, I was particularly impressed with the community and how they interacted with a member of their community with autism.​ ​ . Seeing a variety of weaving, one that included knots in the weavings.​ ​ . Going to a embroiderers small house, where her daughter brought a jug of water on her head to the house. This woman was a character and her house was a warm inviting setting. ​ ​ These are but a few of my memories but just want to say you have a good leader in Gautam and he is an asset to your organisation.​ ​ I'm looking forward to the February trip and want to thank all of you for all your hard work in organising memorable trips! ​ Read more
