This tour was my first group tour and what a great way to start. Pete, our guide, was fantastic making sure we were all happy and comfortable at all times. His passion for the country and his people was very evident and he had a vast knowledge of his country. There was a good mix of activities visiting ruins, swimming in the Mediterranean Sea and exploring Cappadocia. The accommodation was great too. I felt completely safe at all times. Turkey is a beautiful country and I highly recommend this tour. Thanks Mech journeys for this wonderful and memorable tour

Had one day tour in Agra and Delhi. Absolutely loved both the guide Rupinder and the driver Rajesh. Both are professional, knowledgeable and accommodating to our requests. The trip started out at 8am and ended 11pm so we tipped quite handsomely.
Second day we had another one day tour in Delhi. While we had the same driver which was great (but he was less happy as we tipped less givne it was way shorter trip). The guide however was less professional. He was constantly texting, only told stories, information when we asked. And if we did not request for lunch, he would directly bring us to the some Bazzaar. I would not recommend him/

SUB: Best Best experience [ 26-28 May17]
The entire experience of Rishikesh camping and water rafting was one to remember forever! We went as a group of 22 people but those 4 hours of team work bound us so closely together that we returned as friends. The organisers were also experienced and trained which made us a little less worried about the whole experience. They instructed us very well on safety and how to follow their commands! It is important as if we don’t then we are only at risk! The rafting adventure itself was thrilling to no end and unforgettable! Whenever the raft was bumping the rapids, I used to have a knot in my stomach! Even if my friends were non-swimmers, they were very well taken care of by the instructors.
Thanks Team Mech Journeys and Camp Tree Pie to make our holiday as a memorable
