We certainly enjoyed our trip to “Incredible” India. The people, as well as the historical, cultural and geographical aspects of the country, exceeded our expectations. We felt that the itinerary you put together for us, while touching on many of the highlights in India, also provided us with plenty of variety.
The food and hotels, for the most part, were very good to excellent. The only exception was in Varanasi. The drivers were amazing! We would also like to acknowledge our guide, Srivastav in Varanasi as well as Ramesh, the local representative there. They were exceptional.
The overall tour was excellent: a once in a lifetime experience!

We recently traveled to India with family & 2 kids. We contacted MecH Journeys Travel services. From the start, Jaswinder Randhawa (Jassi) took time to get to know me and my family.
The itinerary he designed for us was very thoughtful and considerate. He put us in touch with Eisha Ji, his travel advisor/manager who took care of all of the details of the trip.
Our welcome at the airport and at the hotels were warm. We asked for a reliable and trustworthy driver who can take us around each city (jaipur/jodhpur/Udaipur + more), and they assigned us Joginder. I couldn't imagine someone better. He was very nice, polite and professional. He took very good care of us & he made sure we saw all of the great sights of Rajasthan. He took us to some of his favorite restaurants & food joints and it was great !
We had minor problem at udaipur hotel BUT Jassi and Eisha ji got involved rite away and everything was resolved in minutes. Very caring and professional staff !! Overall, we were treated like family.
Thank you "MecH Journeys" for taking such a good care of us and making our trip memorable. we will for sure contact you again for future travel and vacation packages. THANK YOU !
