As it always happens with the best things in life, we cannot have enough! We started by hiring you for only six days and a quick Rajasthan tour within our big trip, but we ended up with you for all the remaining 16 days of our holiday, wishing to have more. Now people may think this was the clever and astute maneuvering of a good salesman. Nothing farther from the truth. Mr Roy “little bear” never pushed in any way, unlike most of the people we met before him. All his suggestions were for our own benefit and, skeptical as I am, in the first days, we lost the occasion to listen to him. Do so, and trust him, as he is really there to help you with his big heart, such as when we were sick and he went off to buy some special herbal Indian magic-stuff for us and take care of me on my bedside. This man is of a kind that is difficult to find anywhere. He really cares for his guests who he considers as family and friends. But…..too much talking, let’s have some good memories and examples.The surprise visit to the country-side in Ranakpur was one of the best things we did. It was not in my plans, but we could already trust Gautam enough to follow him. Visiting villages and Indians from the country-side, with someone talking for you and being able to understand each other was an experience that no backpackers would do. And what about those cooking lessons…..other great things, the guesthouse in Jodhpur, owned by the gentle professor who was so nice to talk to. The food at the dhabas’, always a little bit adjusted by Gautam to suit our tastes. And the few times we wanted to splash out and stay in top hotels (twice we did it….), never a complaint from Gautam ! He always agreed to our crazy ideas! Tired of desert. O.K. let’s whip the Contessa (our car) to the Himalayas……and then to the Sacred Ganga…. Man, you’re a star, and we really really wish you the best with your little business because no one deserves it more than you do. See you next time in your beloved Bengal. With love.

I have had a terriffic time with these gentlemen. Everything was so comfortable and easy. I wanted some specific things: to shop for antiques, to consult an Ayurvedic doctor and get massage, to hear local music, to visit the Temple of Hanuman the monkey god, and so forth. They found everything for me, and much else as well, not in any guide book. My trip was very safe, very healthy, beautiful, interesting, and stress-free. I am very happy I signed on with this company, and am encouraging my friends that they can safely travel to India this way! Warmly, Althea

Dear Roy: Wow what a fantastic 9 days!!!! Thanks for all your help and hospitality. Let me tell you Roy that when I first found you via the internet all my friends advised me not to go with you. They all recommended the government based tour agents. I took the risk and booked you and now I am very happy that I did. Your timely response and valuable advised helped me to get the best bank for my buck. We appreciated your patience and professionalism in replying all my emails with hundreds of questions. Your advised certainly helped us to create our own ternary. We are more than pleased with your services and of course your friendly and pleasing personality made us comfortable during our entire journey. We liked your up front style when giving information and prices. Of course we did not get any surprises during our trip. Your driver Munna is just like you and very professional and friendly. His driving and friendly service is second to none. What we liked most about is, we were able to do what we wanted to do and you were more than willing to accommodate our requests. Overall we enjoyed our tour and will not hesitate to recommend to any one coming from overseas. We have done many tours in many different countries but we will definitely use your service without any hesitation in the future. We hope we could do the Varnasi and Odessi tours in the near future. Once again thank you very much for making our trip a memorable one not only in our minds but in our hearts too. Your service is second to none. You are one of the exceptions when comes to punctuality. RegardsReuben & Ruth Mississauga, Ontario Canada Reuben404@yahoo.com

We are delighted with our tour! Deepak and Gautam helped us from the beginning: planning, meeting us at the airport, inspiring confidence. Deepak\'s safe and steady driving and the information he provided were very reassuring. Our tour was a good mixture of Nature and cultural sites. We were lucky to see four tigers at Ranthambore Nature Reserve and we loved the forts in Rajasthan and, of course, the Taj Mahal. We recommend their tours without reservations!

Dr.Vixara vizara@planet.nl Dr.Vixara vizara@planet.nl Dr.Vizara vizara@planet.nl After looking at many websites for my trip to India I chose for Gautam Roy and this was a great choice. I sent lots of emails asking him about all sorts of things and he always answered all my questions. We arrived on 19th March and he was there at the airport to pick us up. We met with our driver Deepak and then we went home with Gautam, where we discussed our trip and then had breakfast together.My friends luggage had not arrived (GULF AIR) so Gautam took us to the market to buy clothes.The next morning we left for Rajasthan with Deepak but not before Gautam had sorted out the missing luggage, which was delivered to us before we left Delhi. Deepak is a great driver and he took care of us all the time. We travelled to Jhunjuni, Bikaner, Jailsalmer, Jodhpur, Ranakpur, Udaipur, Pushkar,Jaipur, Ranthambore, Keoladeo and Agra. Deepak made sure that that everything was ok and when I couldn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t find any tonic to mix with my gin, Deepak searched all over town to find it for me. Thanks very much Deepak. Whenever we wanted to stop to take pictures......many times.....he never complained and always waited for us till we were ready with all the pics and video\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s. Deepak knows all the sights. He would always wait for us in the evening when we had finished our meal at the restaurants. One evening .....in Agra....we were late 50 minutes but he waited for us without a complaint. When we arrived in Delhi Gautam had arranged our next trip to Orissa. That evening he took us to a wonderful restaurant near his home: great food. Next morning Gautam put us on the train to Orissa where we arrived 28 hours later. We were picked up by Samar who was to accompany us for the next 12 days. We visited many temples in Bhubaneswar and then went to visit the tribes in Orissa. We visited little villages where we were invited by the local people to visit their homes and to have lunch with them. On our way we met many dancers and actors: we enjoyed their performances. We spent 31 wonderful days in Rajasthan and Orissa knowing that Gautam was always in touch with the cellphone. He phoned every day to ask if everything was ok and each time we had to report that there were no problems at all. Our trip to India was a great experience and we want to thank Gautam, Deepak and Samar. I took lots of pictures, more than 2000, and lots of video (6 hours) and hope to have them online soon. www.vizara.com Dear Gautam, thanks for everything and we\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ll be in touch.

Our trip to Agra from Delhi was overall a very enjoyable experience. Our driver was a very friendly man and sicere (and a safe driver). He allowed us time to take photo along the way, and got us to all our destinations on time. Our tour guide was also quite friendly and knowledgeable. The hotel Royale’ Residency was reasonable one, nice and conveniently located. We’d eventually like to book again with Liberty India Travel for an extensive tour of Rajasthan.

The ‘Golden Triangle Tour” which I booked with you turned out to be as pleasant as expected. The 5 days flow by so fast, especially the short stay in Pushkar. There it has got some special “flair” and in addition, the hotel had a nice swimming pool surrounded by fields of roses, quite remarkable location. Above all, the hotels were clean which is important for me in order to catch no diseases easily. Once we started this trip, Deepak showed me the reference other travelers wrote to him. I can fully agree to their statements that Deepak is a very agreeable fellow, was always on time, drove me safely through out Rajasthan and Delhi. I wish you all the best. Regards Erwin Austria

Liberty India Travel is the most reliable travel agency that I came to know. Mr. Gautam Kr. Roy took care of my travel planning very well. I travelled in Rajasthan and Rishikesh. He planned it in such a way that I enjoyed every moment of it. He made my holiday a memorable one. Mr. Gautam Roy and his driver Deepak is a great combination. Deepak became our guide and a friend.

We are very pleased with Liberty India Travel. While arranging our trip in the US, all emails from Roy were detailed and courteous. He is very organized and efficient at this business. Upon arrival, Deepak was wonderful immediately. We love Deepak! He took good care of us at all times and helped us in every way he could. he went above and beyond to make sure we had a good time. He has a kind & lovely personality and it was very pleasant to travel with him. We were glad to be able to pay with credit card our first night in Delhi. Delhi hotel was fine. Hotel in Corbett- Roop Resort was wonderful. The service was excellent! We wish we knew before our arrival that the actual Corbett Reserve was closed, maybe we would have altered our plan. But overall, we had a great stay there and they did a good job entertaining us even though the reserve was closed. We went for a beautiful walk in the jungle, they provided us with a great guide whom we loved. He and Deepak even built a bridge to help us to cross the river. Also Deepak is a very good driver. ///////////////////////////////////////// As for Rishikesh, we really were not very fond of the hotel. I do not recommend using this hotel again. The shower did not function, the toilet also did not function. The service was decent, the people were kind, but slightly unorganised.///////////////// Thank you for everything Roy, Deepak. We have enjoyed your services and we will certainly recommend you to our friends at home……………. Oh, but I wish, I saw an Elephant also!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Delhi – Agra – Ranthambore – Jaipur – Delhi BOOKING: From first contact Liberty were very much friendly and informative. We appreciated the suggestion of more than one hotel at each city within our budget. The addition of Ranthambore was genius – we loved it. We were really pleased with the whole booking process! OUR TRIP: We were escorted in the airport by Deepak & Mr. Roy… it was a great tour! The hotels were all satisfactory, but the Jaipur hotel was most satisfactory. Staffs were also first class. We were slightly disappointed in Ranthambore’s resort, where the food was not good, and lack of hot water was a problem. DEEPAK: A huge asset to Liberty India travel is your driver Deepak……He is polite, informative and very professional at all times.. he is more than a driver….This is a trip, we cant imagine surviving without him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We will recommend Liberty India Travel to any of our friends who are coming to India. Many Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ask him to explain how Gandhi walked “Totally fast with his stick throughout India, ……..tuck……tuck…..tuck – totally fast”. Ask him to listen to some music and to suggest you what to eat.

Company: Email arrangements were very good; always prompt response from Smita and most courteous. Requests for changes to initial itinerary were made efficiently. It would be a good idea to offer different package rates for standard and more expensive ‘superior’ hotels/rooms. We like to see what we are getting for our money! Itinerary: 16 days is ideal for both sightseeing and traveling long distances. Flexibility of place is important for a personal experience and your company provides this type of itinerary. Take care with hotel and room selection! Driver: always smartly dressed and presented. Good time arrangements and collected us on time agreed. Clean car and reliable. Driver helpful and good conversation. Organized nice guides for us. Skillful driving in scary Indian traffic.

Mahendra Singh is an excellent driver and protective of both my son and myself. He is very knowledgeable about the Hindu religion and enlightened us on Hindu customs and mythology, our trip to Haridwar and going to the cremation ceremony was an emotional unifying experience. He went out of his way to ensure that we got the most out of our experience. He acted as our guide as well as our driver in many situations. You have a true gem of an employee. All of our Hotels were adequate with the hotels in Delhi, Jaipur, and Orchha being superb. I realize there were limited hotels in Khajuraho. Our hotel in Varanasi was fine but Varanasi is a very dirty city, but the boat ride on the Ganges was an experience beyond words. We did not know about the cremations or sinking of the dead bodies. I was surprised when a head floated by the boat. Mahendra had to move over his car through a very tight and long driveway to the Ganga Beach Resort. We have nothing but accolades regarding his driving skills. Again thank you for choosing Mahendra as our driver. We have a few critiques, which do not involve Mahendra. We went to a block printing shop where we purchase hand tailored shirts and two outfits for myself. After going to other silk areas, we realized we probably paid 4X as much as we would elsewhere. It is a learning experience as in the United States. We do not haggle over prices; just pay what the merchant charges. I purchase tailored outfits in Delhi for a quarter of the price (without haggling) and as good quality, also the guide through the old village in Khajuraho is a money making scam and the children do not benefit from donations. I don’t think this should be included for other tourist. Again, we cannot say enough well about Mahendra, we truly enjoyed our time with him. Thanks Susan & Austin Johnson

Maggie and Dez Stait dezstait@hotmail.com Trip to Rajasthan –Driver Whom it may concern: Firstly, we Dez and Maggie Stait, would like to say how superb a driver Sushant: has been throughout our trip from Delhi, throughout Rajasthan, and back. He has faced some very difficult and dangerous traffic conditions and handled them extremely well. His quiet kindness and respect for us throughout have been a joy to behold. He has always fulfilled any small requests and helped us to find good places to eat with a smile. Actual trip remarks concerning Hotels, Guides etc. 1). Mandawa Haveli:- Excellent introduction to Rajasthan, could not have been better. 2). Rangmahal (Jaisalmer):- Wonderful hotel, however too far from center for us to go off & potter about. Guide on his own schedule rushing us from pillar to post, we continually asked to stop sit on a roof top restaurant, but were denied that rest (unshaven). But had hoped for a substitute. 4 & half hours spent at hotel that day. 3). Harasar Haveli:- Good hotel, Sushant took us to Fort, v-good. 4). Inn Season (Jodhpur):- Busy road by railway track dirty full of mosquitos. 5). Hill Resort (Ranakpur):- Wonderful trip. 6). Rajputana Resort (Udaipur):- Excellent trip. 7). Master Paradise (Pushkar):- Major building in progress. 8). Umaid Mahal:- Excellent hotel & service. 9). Hotel in Agra:- Arrived very tired after horrendous journey to find there had a party going on hotel until 1.30 pm. Room over. Restaurant:- Noise from staff. Disappointing Taj to guide. 10). Florence Inn:- Building going on, next door. Good staff, nice hotel. The Guides:- Agra:- We were rushed around the Taj Mahal, such a shame as it is a once in a lifetime glimpse. Udaipur:- Krishna Das- Excellent. Jaipur:- Average guide. General Comments:- On reflection the offer of a four wheel drive (at extra cost) would have been a good suggestion – people not used to India find the driving & heat exhausting. The standard of the hotels met our criteria. But the noise aspect left us tired, spoiling the enjoyment. A more detailed list of options available in the areas would be helpful to the first time visitors to help their plan & full their time fruitful. Although we became very tired & sometimes distraught, by sleepless nights we enjoyed. All the sights of Rajasthan with your company. We certainly feel it was good value for money. It was also very comfortable to know that Sushant & Mr. Roy were always available in the event of a problem. Dez & Maggie Stait.

The highlights of the trip were Ramthambore & Jaisalmer which were lovely both in terms of the accommodation but more importantly the sights. Superb holidays, Shankar is a great driver who made the whole thing enjoyable. Would recommend Liberty Travel & Shankar to friend who wants to visit India in the future. As everyone says above we were really pleased with our holidays & had an excellent holidays. Our driver Shankar was brilliant & wise. In short we enjoyed our holidays. The accommodation was particularly good in Jaisalmer, Jodhpur & Ranthambore. We will be happy to recommend. Many thanks. Alyson Johnson.
