Holiday review by Ms. Claire Pretty

Date of trip: 24/10/2019
Number of people: 2
Country: India

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "The whole experience was fantastic. "
Tribes Service: "Excellent"
Guides: "Most of our guides were amazing but some of the days (especially in Delhi) when our itinerary suggested we would get some choice about how were spent the day was not really an option when we got there. I had a couple of places I would have liked to have gone but we got told he had an itinerary given by the travel company and that was what we were doing. We enjoyed the day and got to visit a lot of places just felt a bit like a school trip or a large tour."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "There was still quite a push on the elephant ride when we got to the Amber fort, which is my only negative.
TRIBES REPLY: We are disappointed, however, that you were offered an elephant ride. This is something that we do not condone and our partners in India know this. The guide in question that pushed the elephant ride will be re-trained to be clear about this so that this does not happen again. We’re sorry you were put in an awkward position on this point, but obviously delighted that the trip as a whole was so good."


Colonels Retreat
One of my favourite hotels that I have ever stayed at
Fishtail Lodge
This feels like a slightly unfair rating for any other holiday but it is being compared to some truly excellent hotels.
Gaun Ghar
Nice place and good idea, however it all felt a little dirty. We were quite glad it was only one night which was a bit of a shame.
Kantipur Temple House
We loved the old buildings and all the staff were really friendly and helpful.

Our Memories
