Holiday review by Neil Ritchie

Date of trip: 21/10/2011
Number of people: 2
Country: India

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "We'd definitely use you again."
Tribes Service: "Really enjoyed the suggested stays just off the beaten track that we never would have thought of ourselves. Paul listened to exactly what we wanted and planned a perfect itinerary around that. Timing to include Diwali was perfect as well."
Guides: "With a few excellent. Driving very safe apart from the taxi transfer from Bhainsrorgarh to the train station at Kota."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Nice to see local people employed at a a number of the places we stayed and support to the local communities - this was particularly noticeable at Nature Heritage and Kanha Earth Lodge."


Mansingh Palace
Fine for an overnight stop in a big chain style hotel.
Chambal Safari Lodge
We loved the river safari
Samode Haveli
Loved eating out in the courtyard and relaxing by the pool while watching the kite flyers. Very good location for exploring Jaipur.
Kanha Earth Lodge
Fantastic room and guide. Saw tigers as well! Enjoyed a visit to a real local market along with our guide.
Bhainsrorgarh Fort
Apart from the drive back to Kota station which was far too fast and felt dangerous with no seat belts. Superb place, very relaxed with good service and food. Eating by candlelight on the roof with the Diwali fireworks exploding around us will be a lasting memory.
