At the conclusion of our tour of India, we wish to thank & comment AART & its officiates for the success of our journey. Thanks to your care & planning we have experience “The Real India” in safety & comfort & have enjoyed many viewed sights.
We especially appreciated our careful drivers, Mr. D.K Sexana was excellent and also unavoidable train problems were well handled. And when one hotel proved unsatisfactory, we were quickly taken care of. The itinerary was very fine as well.
For the most part our Guides were very good to excellent. The one exception was in Mandawa, where a young chap simply took us from place to place, but he could not speak much English & knew no history.
The Shani Vilas in Ranthambore should not be used. Very poor management & no food! We recommend using the Ranthambore Regency- an excellent faculty. Otherwise Hotels had good service + friendly Staff. We recommended including at least one Son-et-Lumire show at the Gwalier.
We recommended allowing fine for train delay (our original itinerary cut it too close & we would have missed out our flight) Overall, we rate this experience & AART staff, facilities + itinerary was excellent. Well paced, diverse + comprehensive. Thank you for taking such good care of us. We are happy to recommend you highly

First of all it was a great pleasure to meet you and your wife and the AA Recreation team on our arrival in Delhi. Many thanks for the most useful gifts of hats and that travel bag which we never stopped using. My wife and I would like to thank you for all your efforts on our behalf, as the trip was truly "super". We enjoyed the hotels; the people of your country, the food and of course the people who acted as guides and the drivers. Pradeep is one in a million. He was always there when needed and would always ask if he could do more. His skill at driving was evident on many an occasion and much appreciated by us
We enjoyed the whole visit but Dogcart more than any of the stops. The owners or family were so hospitable and friendly that we all said we would like to return. We only had one stop, which we requested, but which we would suggest you not think of using and that is the Gordon House Hotel. It is two hours drive from the airport across Mumbai central and the disco continues until 3am. We have already suggested to friends that they contact you and that you are now on the Internet. Should you ever want a Recommendation we would be very happy to supply one. Our thanks again for making our holiday a memorable one
With best wishes,

Dear Mr Suman Dharamvir
We just wanted to write and tell you how much we enjoyed our recent holiday in India, organised by your company, AA Recreation. Everything worked out perfectly – all the drivers were always there to meet us together with the guides and all the hotels were expecting us with very good rooms. Pradeep was an exceptionally good driver – we were very impressed with him – always very neat and tidy with lovely manners, and he drove beautifully. We thought all the hotels were good, especially the Imperial, Delhi, the Samode Haveli, Jaipur, and the Deogarh Mahal, Deogarh was really lovely. We told the Deogarh Family that you were our travel agent so do contact him if you send other people there – I am sure your other clients will be very impressed with the service and hospitality we received there. The only hotel we do not recommend is the Gordon House in Mumbai – the hotel itself is very nice but they have a nightclub on the premises which is very, very noisy until 3.00 am in the morning so it was impossible to sleep! We shall be passing your brochures onto our friends and strongly recommending your company to them. We shall certainly return to India in the future. Many thanks for your all your help
