I am writing this email in regards to the wonderful and memorable trip we had with mech journeys. The trip was organized beautifully and the trip Managers Santosh were one of the best we have ever come across. They did their best to make our trip special and beautiful. The credit goes to their cheerful and joyful yet a professional behavior. Great to have someone like them in your team and if I do another trip with mech journeys I will have to insist that it needs to be with Santosh. I would give him 100%
Thanks again for the experience of our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Mech Journeys made our this anniversary a memorable one.

We had planned a special holiday and MecH Journeys certainly did their best to make it special and memorable for us. The planning was meticulous and all went to plan. 23 days touring Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh. The representatives were professional and guides adjusted the program to suit our requirements with no fuss. Thank you, and I have already started to recommend your service to all that have shown an interest.

What can I say, but that everything was fabulous! The Guides (All cities) were brilliant. The information and their knowledge of their regions were insightful and interesting. Their interaction with the group was great, they were able to adapt and engage with the wants and needs of our group. We loved every minute and were a little sad when we had to say farewell to everyone.
As you know I was travelling with my children - aged 14 & 19. Both enjoyed the tour and are now asking when we will be going back - maybe to spend a little longer in Jaipur just to see everything again and more.
In short, this was one of the best family holidays that we have been on. The trip was brilliant, you and your staff couldn't do enough for us, everywhere we went was beautiful and home visits in Udaipur were a highlight. I will recommend you and your company to everyone.
Thank you so much, we had such a wonderful time. We love, love India and are already planning and saving for our return.

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.
