Our trip was fascinating and the service provided was up to the mark. All the hotels were very comfortable and hotels staffs were friendly and mindful of all our needs. Our tour executive was really helpful and was quick to respond to all our queries. We would strongly recommend Great Escapes !
On behalf of my wife and myself I’d like to thank you for offering Le maritime and The Great Escape to us. We enjoyed our stay very much. Mr Benny deserves a big thank too. The proposals were all very useful. Who knows, one day we’re back .
Dear Binu,

Firstly I would like to thank you for organising a fantastic holiday for us. All our trip was so well organised that everything went to plan, from Santhosh meeting us on arrival to the point of dropping us on our final day. We are still talking about our holiday and the beauty of Kerala. Having travelled on many such organised Holidays this was far best well organised holiday we have been to. Thank you again and keep up the good job.

Our special thanks to Santhosh.
“We visited India for 3 weeks during August 2018 with Great Escapes (The Great Indian Tours), who were recommended to us by a work colleague. We gave them a list of places that we wanted to visit, they put together a personalised itinerary for us, and also added in some extra delightful places based on their local knowledge.The daily local tour guides provided by Great Escapes throughout the tour were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and made the sightseeing really fun as well as very informative. Great Escapes provided a personal chauffeur who was an excellent driver, and this enabled us to visit places easily, and go to stunningly beautiful sites in remote areas off the tourist track. Great Escapes customer Service was also fantastic. The Great Escapes team are professional, friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable, they went the extra mile to make our holiday really special, fun and a very memorable one. Overall, the whole tour was absolutely amazing, we had a fantastic holiday.

After a long way back home I finally ordered my office again.
We have to say a big thank you to everybody who made our holidays in India so fabulous. We had all over so warm and friendly welcomes, we saw so many things and with our charming drivers we could visit so many impressionable spots. They always took care of us and of our luggage and Backpacks. We felt very secure and protected. With their help we were visiting so many places and they explained us all the spices greenery and a lot of more questions.>
If we should come back to India I will contact you again for any assistance to coordinate a new tour trough India.
Warmest regards to everybody

We must say that we really very much enjoyed our tour of North India and your company was largely responsible for this, so thank you. There was a little difficulty with our return flight being cancelled but with help from Kichner our marvellous driver we were able to get alternative flights with no real difficulty, as you say it was not your fault or responsibility .The hotels you provided were all good, we liked the Vivaana in Mandawa best! just brilliant!

I am just sorry I did not get to meet you Binu to thank you personally for all you hard work in preparing for our visit, I wish you and your family well.
Dear Great escapes. Here we are giving our sincere comments about our tour organized by your company. The car was good and neatly maintained. The driver was good ,very friendly and adjustable with a smiling face. The hotels Water scapes and aranyanivas are excellent. But houseboat and kovalam hotel are satisfactory. Your executive was friendly and very responsible. Entire tour package is satisfactory But we found a little difficult in Thekkady as we could enjoy jeep trail,forest trail , It will be good if we stay there for 2 nights.

  • Not happy with the arrangements of the houseboat stay .the houseboat people were not interested in taking us around .the boat was anchored for almost more than 3 hours .they didn't have proper platform so we could not go into the village . The boat people were sitting on the sofa and were enjoying the loud music .

  • Prompt service with good guidance. Arrangements were excellent from the day one picking us from the railway station followed by the two days trip till the drop at the railway station. Excellent coordination by the driver and your staff Ms.Anuja throughout our trip made the trip very enjoyable. The driver was very kind and polite and made our programme very successful. Our stay in the house boat, visit to Allappey beach, Marara beach, Fort Kochi, Marine drive were mind blowing. Ms. Anuja was very caring and guided through phone excellently. Hats off to her. The accommodations for two days were appreciable. Thanks to your team for making the trip memorable for us. All the very best for your future service.
