    An excellent tour organised by an excellent & well organised Company in Bout India Tours. Right from the start of dealing with the Managing Director Himanshu & his team I knew our trip would be great. This was a private tour with only two of us & we were driven by an excellent driver in a very comfortable & modern car. The hotels we stayed at was excellent as some were Palaces & some were Havelis, others were well known brands with 5 star ratings.The local guides were all very knowledgeable & showed us many places of interest such as Forts, Palaces National Parks with lots of wildlife which also included a camel ride.Being a private tour we could do as much or as little as we liked which gave us ample time to meet the locals & shop away from the tourist spots. The guides & driver were very helpful in this area and pointed out the places to shop or recommend restaurants, mainly where the local shop or eat. The cost of the tour was very reasonable. We were loaned a mobile phone to keep in touch with the office or the driver when we wanted to be picked up from a restaurant as he was at our disposal the whole time.I cannot recommend Bout India highly enough & anyone travelling to India or nearby countries then look no further than Bout India Tours as you will not be disappointed

    Simply awesome! We booked a customised trip with Bout India after researching a number of tour companies based in India. This was one of the best decisions we ever made, as the tour organised by Himanshu and his team was truly amazing where we experienced different cities of India in a very short time we had there. From the time we expressed our interest, Himanshu was in regular contact with us, providing great insights, advise and reassurances to ensure the very best for us. He also provided us with a local mobile phone, with free calls within India and tonnes of data to ensure we were able to capture and share our moments and keep regular contact with our families at all times while we were in India. We had a grand welcome, and felt like kings and queens with the hospitality, love and care shown by Bout India, the drivers and guides throughout the tour. The guides and the drivers at each of our locations were very knowledgeable and friendly, and it felt like we were travelling with families and friends. They showed us great insights into local cultures and traditions and were flexible enough to show us what we wanted to see. The hotels and the transport booked were all of excellent standard and had great variety of delicious food. We had a truly amazing and memorable experience of India. If you want to have a hassle-free and relaxing holiday in India, I very strongly and genuinely recommend you to book with Bout India.

    Thank you so much to Himanshu and colleagues for the most wonderful trip. The attention to detail you offered was beyond outstanding. From the moment we landed in Delhi, we did not have to think about anything. Our driver, Amrish was absolutely fantastic and made us felt safe at all times. Your company called us every day to make sure we were happy and comfortable. We have never experienced such professionalism before. It has opened our eyes to the magic that is India. We cannot wait to come back and will recoomend Bout India to all our friends.Lee, Megan & Pete, Perth, Australia
