HOME : Commendations
All of us have arrived home safely in Seattle after a long flight. I counted up about 50+ hours for myself, as I had a 6 hour lay-over in Salt Lake City. But, of course, it was all worth it.
You could not have made our India experience more enjoyable. All the details were handled so efficiently and smoothly by you. We kind of are a “pain in the neck” group with all our special requests. You were most gracious on every occasion regarding these special requests. Your knowledge of your country is excellent and this made our trip ever so enjoyable. Your choice of local guides was tops, as we learned so much about each of the destinations.
Of course, our highlight was seeing the elusive but beautiful Bengal tigers—truly a majestic animal. We learned so much about the tiger’s habitat, habits, footprints, and special naming. We loved the movies shown of the tigers which added to our knowledge. The terrain of the parks was unique to each park and beautiful in its own way.
The trip was a hectic and aggressive schedule due to my desire to have the group see the Tigers. I was fearful we would not see any; thus, the reason for the booking of the 5 parks. I was so pleased that the one park was open in the morning on that Wednesday so we had an extra opportunity for sightings. The accommodations were excellent; only at Ken River Lodge did we have any complaints and that was my choosing.
India is a country of so many dimensions; its culture, people, flora and fauna, and animals are unique in the world. We all came away with a sense of awe of its many wonders.
On behalf of the Seattle group, we send you again our appreciation for a fine job on your part. We shall fondly recall our wonderful memories of your fair country for a long time to come. We thank you for sharing your wonderful photos with us.
If you ever get a chance to visit Seattle, we offer you a warm hospitality to stay with all of us.
Sending warm regards to you, Laxmi, and much appreciation,
Dear Manoj,We had a wonderful two weeks holiday in India, thanks to your well organized arrangements. The first week in Rajastahn was unbelivable and we really had a good time. The combination with Camel/Hourse safari was very good and we specially enjoyd the Horse part of the trip. Very much because the very good guides (Shive and Pushbinder) and there horses. Give them our regards and thank them for a very good job.
The Camel part was well oganized aswell evan if the camping was I bit basic, according to our program we very going to stay with with a landlord family in Raas but we ended up in tent wich was i bit of a surprice. Specially since the camp was not ready when we arrived, i bit tired, after a long day on the camelback.
We enjoyed the visit to tempel in Pushkar and the camel ride itself though with very kind and helpful camel owners, they prepered very good food and were helpful in all ways and Perry did a good job as guide so give our regards to him aswell.
The night at Nimaj Palace with special arrangements for Didi was most appreciated, aswell as the evening and night at Ravla Narlai, that place is something extra!! The night at the private home in Padampura was also most appreciated, give our regards to the Owner!
Overall we have had a fantastic two weeks in India and are just looking forward to our next trip to India, which could be to Sikkim or maby once again to Rajasthan which we really "felt inlove with".
We enjoyed the nature tour organized by you very much and I have already recommended it to others.
Christa & Markus
How are you! We are fine. We have started to work, and that feels not so good. It was much more funny to travel in India.
We have started to fix our pictures. We will send you some that you are on pictures. We hope you send some too us where we are your pictures.
We have a great time in India. We hope we come back.
I am not god to speak english as you maybe notice, but i am understand the most.
Once again thank you very much för a very good planned and guided tour. I learned a lot more about India.
Thank you so much!
Just started to work with all pictures. The magic hour in Dudhwa when we first got a glimpse of a tiger, had an elephant ride and saw the Indian rhinoceros in abeautiful forest...
Wish you a very Good 2012!
Best regards Eva A
Very beautiful christmas-card. Manoj.
A powerful animal!
I will always remember those days in India and I hope Pia and I can return some day. It would be nice to show our children and grandchildren your Country. We keep in touch.
Thank you for your X-Mas wishes.
The trip to India was such a fantastic experience and we are delighted that we saw not only the tiger, but so manyother animals and fantastic sceneries.
We especially want to thank you for your splendid organization and control of all the details that made the trip so easy-going. We are absolutely delighted and spend our days in Paris watching, and showing family and friends, the thousands of pictures we brought back.
We send you some pictures. Perhaps you can give us the name of the animal on which you made us visit the market ;-)
The 2 others are from a snow-free Paris in X-mas time.
We wish you a Happy New Year to you, Kartk and your family.
Marika & Peter
Thank you very much for such an interesting and exciting tour in a small part of the huge and fascinating India. Thanks to you we got a much better and more varied picture of India and its development . I have attached a few pictures although I haven't sorted all the pictures yet.
Best regards and thanks again for your guiding and interesting discussions during the visit in India.
we would like to thank you for the excellent organisation of our trip to india from 04.03 till 19.03.11. Everything worked very well and there were no problems during this journey at all.
Thank you for that again.
We also would like to express our contentment with our driver Mr. Harrish, based in Nagpur . He was our driver between Orchha and Nagpur for at least nine days. In this time we got him to know as a really nice and caretaking person. He is a very secure driver and we always felt very comfortable with him. He was always in time and really concerned about our welfare.
Due to his competences we highly recommend him, especially for long-time drives.
India Tour 19.2-06.3 2011 with Stefan
We would like to thank you for the nice time we spent in India. It was really very well managed and the guides and drivers very skilled at all the parks. Sending you a picture of the wild dog we saw. You said it was scares and you had not seen it very often so we must have been very lucky. It was good to see so many animals and birds. We are trying to sort out all the pictures we took. It takes time.
Thank you very much for your assistance and company on yet another excellent visit to your incredible country. I enjoyed it very much and was especially impressed by the amount of work and effort you put into pleasing us and providing us with extra activities for which we gave you nothing in return. It was simply amazing.
I'm sorry, I really meant to let you know sooner just how much of a wonderful time I had. After returning to Dehradun I moved to Shimla the next day and have had intermittent Internet access since. :
Yes, lovely. No tiger sightings but being abslutely honest I would have considered that an additional bonus anyway. In terms of the overall "package" experience I was very pleased. The Wildcrest is a lovely hotel - much posher than those I'm more used to! And their Internet site really doesn't do them justice as I was far more impressed than their site led me to expect. The driver, Saqeel (not sure if the spelling is right) was great, as were the guides.
In terms of Corbett itself, apart from having lost much of the grasslands and therefore trails as well due to the amount of rainfall, the whole experience of being under such large trees, both size & quantity, and spending quiet time, just sitting, watching and listening was such a refreshing and beautiful experience and I would definately consider coming back in a few years time.
I came away with over 1000 useable-ish photographs and nearly 5 hours of video tape yet to be sorted.
Slightly disapointed that I had to pay for my elephant ride - as I'd thought that was within the "package" - but that was an interesting experience. Certainly one thing I've learnt though is that in those types of environments you really need to have as many camera bodies as lenses that you intend to use as lens swapping with some much dust is a real no-no!
So, thoroughly enjoyed and thoroughly satisfied.
Best regards and thanks,
Thanks very much for sorting out our Sunderbans trip. All the arrangements
I would just like to say that i had a fantastic time at the tiger reserve
Everything went perfectly so many thanks for all your efforts.
INT Family Tour Dec 07-Jan 08
Wonderful way to experience India. I am happy that Adventure Tours selected your company. Everything was so smooth, checking in at hotels, rickshaw drivers waiting, excellent organization, tours and guides with very good knowledge AND than you for sorting out the tips for us!!
Paivi Nomtak n family.
A Satisfactory visit!!
Corbett was excellent and Ranthambore was also very good (except for the safari vehicles). The people, everybody was really nice and friendly. Excellent level of service. On an overall basis the food was good but lacked some variety. I would like to go to different parks on a history and cultural tour.
I think you have done an excellent job Manoj!!!!
One of the best holidays I have had!! An excellent tour.
I liked the Jeep Safari in Corbett
Johan & Lena Holmdahl

Christer & Eva Granbom
I liked the mixture of Nature & Culture. Really enjoyed the stay in Forest Rest House in Corbett. Would have liked to have stayed there some X-tra days because of simplicity of coming out in the Nature.
An excellent Tour.
One of the best holidays I have had!!
The quality of the guides, knowledge about so much of wildlife ..OUTSTANDING
Highlights of the tour were A) Taj Mahal B) Python coming out from its borough C) Some of the birds.
I was taken care of in a very good way and the information was good.
Never met any guide with such knowledge about the birds, mammals, trees etc. The "Boss" was extremely caring. Thank you both.Tor Ahlstedt
Our accommodation throughout the trip was very well presented. The vehicles were all mechanically sound. Our guides were very thorough and informative.
Mr. Sharma was very professional and we appreciated him checking on us throughout our tour. We hope to come back to India and look forward to using Indian Nature Tours again.
Thoroughly enjoyable and excellent tour!!Charlie, Roxanna & Sarah Brierley
All enjoyable, a tourist needs a positive attitude in India, it is a big experience that some would find daunting but our transfers etc were so smooth they made it easy.
Accommodations Great variety of places all special in their own way.
Very good cars for the transfers.
Escorts great.. tour guides great, some of the park guides were a little too focused on tiger.
Overall one of the best holidays I have had.Sharon Ryan & Leslie Allen

I would be happy to provide reference for either the quality of the tour or the financial arrangements for money transfer. We all feel a little concerned when we transfer money to a name on the internet.
Accommodations .. Excellent no problems in any hotel.
All guides had very good knowledge.
An excellent tour.Dr. David Jones, UK

One of the best holidays we have had.
From Start to the end we have really enjoyed ourselves and experienced enormously. In only 10 days both Culture and Nature, wildlife and the everyday life in India.
2 nights in Agra instead of Bharatpur was a perfect solution for us.
An excellent Tour.
We had a great time and a tight schedule which I like. I’m very satisfied with the trip and our driver. Great that we visited both parks and Agra.Charlotta Aberg
Solna, March 2008.
Thanks for the email.
The trip was a real success. We all enjoyed it very much. The three national reserves were a good contrast. We managed to see two lions in Gir on our last excursion into the park together with lots of other wildlife.
The Rann of Kutch was good. We saw lots of the wild asses, a family of Nilgai in the open and birds. Corbett was good too. I could certainly recommend any of them for future trips.
UK April 2008.
Got back home safely after a very long and arduous journey. The flight from Delhi was 5 hours late, meaning I missed my connection in Paris and had to wait another 4 hours there. So instead of being home by Friday lunchtime, it was finally Friday evening.
Thank you once again for your friendship and companionship on the trip, and as always for your impeccable organization, especially in the face of adversity with my delayed arrival.
I shall be back in touch again.
Kind regardsRupert Fisher, UK
Many thanks for a prefect arrangement that was very efficient, interesting and has learnt us a lot in an only 2 weeks.
Many of the sightings will be remembered for the rest of our lives. Especially the beautiful day in Dudhwa with Rhinos and Tigers.Peter Hunger
" Fantastic Experience"
As I promised I hereby give our thoughts on our trip to India in December 2007 and the arrangements organized by Indian Nature Tours.
Travelling around in India with a family of five people was a fantastic experience and we were more than delighted to see so much wildlife including tiger and leopard in there natural habitat during our week of nature trip.
The itinerary was extremely well organized into the smallest details and made our trip unforgettable. The efficiency and friendliness that we were happy to receive at any part of the trip was overwhelming in particular during our stays at Mowglies Den and Tuli Tiger resort. I would like to give our personal guides Bolla and Raj, a special thanks as they were acting not only as professional guides but also made us feel that we were amongst friends.
We are already looking forward to our next visit to India and will definitely be asking Indian Nature Tours to arrange the coming trip as well. I would recommend any smaller or bigger group a similar arrangement, as it is great to trust someone to organise things exactly according to your demand especially when travelling as a family with kids.
Great thanks to Mr Manoj Sharma and Indian Nature Tours far a perfect arrangement and personal engagement.
Mats Sigvant with family

Tiger & Lion Safari Nov 2006
It was a true joy and pleasure to meet you and your team at Indian Nature Tours. I felt treated like a queen from the day we arrived with Anders Wallin, until the night we left your India. Every day in Rajasthan was filled with only nice adventures and pleasant experiences in a very grand way. Thank you for that whole arrangement and also for the well tasting farewell dinner you generously provided for. After that I even like Indian food! Hope sincerely we will meet again on a "safari-akvarell-tour" next year as discussed. I will push Anders hard in that direction!
Sincerely yours Boel (Looström von Sydow)
" We were very pleased with the arrangements of our trip.
" We have had a really EXCELLENT driver, who took good care of us.
" Good choice of accommodation.
" The guides have been uttermost professional, except a little poor English in Corbett.
"We felt like King & Queen"

Thank you for a fantastic tour in your beautiful country. We all enjoyed it very much and now when it is snowing in Sweden. I think of the sun in India.
