Dear Nidheesh,
I just wanted to say thank you for the very good organisation of our wonderful trip through Radjasthan. 
We have enjoyed it a lot and your excellent organisation skills contributed to that. Also thanks for being so flexible all the time. Both in preparation stage and even during the trip, we came up with changes and suggestions and you always tried to accomodate us as much as you could. 
Everything went perfectly well. We were also very happy with Jagroop as our driver. He is very professional, drives very save and has a very good personality. He was always willing to help out where needed and followed up for the details when we made an arrangement for a desert tour locally (he contacted the guide to check the details on where and when we exactly would get the pick up by jeep to go into the desert).
All together it was a fantastic experience that we will remember.
Big thank you and wish you all the best. 
best regards,

Dear Nidheesh

Thank you so much for  arranging such a wonderful holiday for us in  Rajastan.  We were all very happy with our time there and with your,  and your company's attention, to detail, which made a 3 weeks a truly  memorable time.

I would like particularly to mention our wonderful driver Raju, who  was not only an excellent and skilled  driver, but was  always  helpful and cheerful - a truly delightful companion to us throughout  our time in India.

I shall certainly recommend your services to any friends who might be  traveling to India in the future.

Best Wishes

Hello Mr. Saxena,

I would like to thank you for the excellent service you provided during our recent tour. I must say that he diver Mr. Harish was very accomodating, courteous and helpful. Our guest (from Canada) sat in the front seat for the entire raod trip and was in praise of his driving and personality.

We would also like to thank Mr. Vishal for meeting us at the railway station (on our arrival) and also for seeing us off at the end of our tour.

We all enjoyed our tour and look forward to using your services in the future (once we have saved enough). I am compleing a short holiday with our Canadian friend in Goa, who will then return to Canada. I will complete your questionaire and fax it to you shortly.

Please give our regards to Mr Harish and Mr Vishal.

Thank you,
Vinod Gonsalves.

Just a quick note to say thank you for a job very well done on organising our holiday

Your people in Mumbai and  varanassi have done you proud

All parts of our trip ran faultlessly

We had a wonderful time,

The hotels in Matheran and Varanassi were wonderful

The taj in Mumbai  was brilliant

The Fariyas was acceptable if not brilliant

All transfers were conducted very efficiently

It did make for a wonderful holiday.

Only one down point

Our guide in Varaassi took us to all the right places but did not protect us from the beggars/ con merchants trying to get our money and was  obviously trying to get us into his friends shops  to buy things - not what i wanted !

Thank you once again  and we will be in touch for our return visit!

By the way do you cover Sri Lanka by any chance?

Thank you once again

Tour Report

Mr. Gerald Hoetzel – Feb. 3 – Feb. 12 2007

First of all we really want to thank you for organizing this trip. What we saw was beyond expectation. It was not only interesting to see all the tourist highlights but to travel through the countryside and small villages, to watch people and to get an impression of both city and rural life. We were very warm welcomed at every place and not treated as foreigners. We hope the next time we will have a little bit more time to spend.

The table below gives you some information about every destination visited.




Sights and Guides

Hotel City Park

Room OK

Breakfast OK

very good lunch

Well organized and friendly reception at the airport

Absolute highlight: Qutab Minar

Interesting: Ghandi’s Cremation Site, Lotus Temple, Government District, India Gate


Hotel Castle Mandawa

Nice room, great view over the city, we felt very comfortable

Breakfast OK

very interesting havelies


Hotel Lallgarh Palace

Exceptional room, we did really enjoy it

Fantastic dinner

Breakfast fair

Fort very interesting, interesting camel breeding

Guide very competent and excellent English


Ajit Bhawan

Very nice room overlooking the garden

Breakfast OK

Dinner buffet excellent

Fort and marble memorial very impressive, city centre and market very interesting

Guide very knowledgeable, we got a lot of background information



Room OK

Full breakfast buffet was not available at the time posted

Dinner OK

Ranakpur was one of the highlights

Udaipur: Palace in a very poor condition, boat trip was very nice


Hotel Clarks Amer

Room OK

Dirty carpet in restaurant (needs some improvement)

Breakfast and dinner very good

Lunch: restaurant recommended by the local guide was sensational

Ajmer and Pushkar: very interesting

Jaipur: Fort Amber Complex very nice, city tour very interesting, especially observatory!

Guide: best guide of the whole trip


Hotel Clarks Shiraz

Nice rooms, extremely friendly welcome (fruits etc.)

Dinner buffet excellent

Breakfast on the rooftop very good

Deeg Palace: seems to be beyond repair (we got the wrong entrance tickets – 100 Rupies paid for a 2 Rupies ticket, local guide requested extra fee)

Fatehpur Sikri: very impressive, local guide well informed

Agra: arrival in bad weather – local welcome agent and guide could not agree whether or not to go to the Taj Mahal; we went there and turned around at the ticket booth – we were there the next morning; highlight of the whole trip

Agra Fort very beautiful, Akhbar’s Mausoleum very interesting

Driver: Excellent driving, timetable worked very well, very helpful at Ajmer, chose nice place for the stops (food and drink)

Car: was very comfortable to ride on a SUV, the car makes you feel safe

General Comment on Local Guides: We would have liked to get background information on Indian politics, everyday life, social situation, working condition, educational system, economy, …. and not only on historic details.

We were happy whenever we were served Indian cuisine at the hotels and restaurants because it´s authentic, delicious and of better quality than European style food.

Some improvements to be done: It was a little annoying to pay about 800 Rupies as bribe at the entrance of the terminal building to avoid the long queues when departing India. The airport itself is in a desolate shape.

Margit and Gerald Hoetzel

Hi Nidheesh,

Good afternoon !!

We have come back from our fantastic tour of Karela.

I just want to tell you that our was organised beyond our imagination. It was really a good experience to have well planned tour of such a nice place. We had a very good time out there. Especially House Boat was an ultimate experience.

Hotels were good & driver (Aneesh kumar) was really a good person. If a person like him is our driver than i am sure we don't need to hire any guide for tour.

I wish i could stay there for more days. And evrything was within our pocket size.

I am sure we'll go for some more exciting tours in future.

I wish you all the very best to PRAGEMA TRAVELS.

Thanks a lot.

Greetings from New Zealand.

I am sorry we have taken so long to write. We would like to say how much we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to India. The professionalism of your staff and organisation ensured that everything went very smoothly. We were impressed with the standard of the hotels we stayed in, the guide services provided and the exceptional dedication of your local representatives, especially Mr Gupta. As for Mr Kishansingh we cannot say how much we appreciated his friendliness, kind nature, and superb driving skills. We have sent him something from New Zealand which he should have received by now. If not please let us know so we can follow up from our side.  
Thank you again for an excellent holiday in your beautiful country. We will certainly return and use your company again and we tell everyone we meet to use you as well.

Once again thank you so kindly for arranging our tour in India, we greatly appreciate the time and effort that you have put into this tour, as a token of our appreciation I am asking you if there is a small gift that you would like us to bring for you from the USA. Please do not hesitate to let me know, I can give to your associate at the airport who can forward it to you, or we can meet in Dehli, what ever is convenient for you.

By the way can you continue to try and arrange for us the train on the 24 dec from ahmedabad to surat if possible as we would still prefer the train if some how you can get us the seats, otherwise the ac coach  is fine if the train is not possible. Also please forward the cell phone number to me, once you have the number.
