I am writing this to tell you that your company's efforts (and Mahender in particular) made our stay in Sri Lanka just PERFECT! Everything went smooth, Mr. Mahender was just the right mixture of guide and driver - sometimes taking us to places only he knew, on other occasions doing everything in his power to make sure we got to an attraction we had found... He is a fun, intelligent, capable and extremely friendly driver and it was an absolute pleasure to be under his care.Your own personal help and acommodating manner also made everything so much easier so that I would like to extend a thank you to you personally as well.When my friends go to Sri Lanka you can rest assured that your company is the one to get the best reviews from me!

Based upon the advice of a local associate, we selected MECH Journeys to assist us with some complex aspects of our planned 2015 trip to India. Devender Dimri looked at our proposed itinerary, made suggestions, determined costs, and made bookings after consulting with us, hence almost every detail was handled well before we left Canada.
Shortly after our arrival in Delhi, Devender and Prakeet made a special trip from their downtown offices to our hotel (the 4 Points Airport Sheraton) during Delhi rush hour, just to meet us and go over our Itinerary. They also provided us with 24 hour phone numbers in case we needed any assistance over the course of our 2 months in India.
As we travelled, a driver was on-hand to meet us at Rajeev Gandhi Arpt. in Hyderabad even though the flight was hours late. Several days later we were able to effortlessly board the train from Jabalpur to Agra because Devender and Prakeet had explained the train system to us in some detail. About three weeks later, on the road from Udaipur to Bhuj, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call from Devender confirming that everything was going smoothly, that the car and driver were appropriate to our needs, and to once again assure us that he was available to assist us 24 hours a day throughout our trip.
I wish to thank MECH Journeys for all of their assistance, and to assure them that I will definitely use their services for future trips to India.

I would like to thank you very much for organizing our tour to India. The tour was planned exactly as per expectations. From the beginning to end we did not face any problems. Regarding the Kerala tour the car provided was very comfortable and a very confident driving. Whatever I mention about our guide a very intelligent young man with depth of knowledge about India's history. He is very polite and good company to be with. We thoroughly enjoyed having him with us. My sister and brother in law enjoyed their Rajasthan tour. They found the car comfortable and the driver Mr. Singh very confident and polite. I have already recommended you to one of our friends who might be going to India next year and hope they book with you. Would you be able to book holidays for us anywhere in the world? If so we would love to book through you. I sincerely thank you very much for such a wonderful holiday

This was the most amazing tour. I had wanted to see India for a long time and I was not disappointed. Adil was a wonderful guide and nothing was too much trouble for him. We had trouble getting any rupees and all through the trip he kept his cool and good humour. We also had a great driver. India was dusty and noisy (on the roads) but it was also very colourful and vibrant. The people were amazing, kind and generous with their time and happy to answer any questions or help out. I would go back in a heartbeat to see more of the beautiful countryside. Mech Journeys was great, I like the smaller tours over others I have been on and would certainly take one of them again. A fantastic experience.”
