Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "We had a fantastic time. After the initial shock of road travel, we soon had to admit that it did, somehow work and decided to have faith in our driver and sit back and enjoy! BP, our driver for the week was great, he looked after us at all times and was always punctual, informative and courteous. The guides in all 3 cities were very good, not only the historical side of the places visited but with general questions relating to daily life and cultural and religious questions. The old town in Delhi was a real eye opener, the chaos, the colors, the shops, the people, fantastic. We could easily have spent more time there. The Taj Mahal was as spectacular as anticipated. We went in late afternoon and again in the morning for sunrise. This is certainly worth doing, the different colors playing off the marble in the sun are amazing. Jaipur was probably our favorite city. A little less mad, we walked the streets and had a lassi and some sweets and even crossed the road ! The Amber Fort was fun with the elephant ride and spectacular views. It was just a week of full on assault on the senses, in the most positive way. The food was delicious, the people friendly and continually something new and different to see. Thank you so much."
Tribes Service: "Paul was excellent. As we booked last minute, it was all a little hectic, but we had all the information we needed and Paul was always there to answer my questions "
Guides: "The guides were all very knowledgeable and very forthcoming and open. BP, our driver was great and we knew we could trust and count on him at all times."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Local people yes, environment, probably less so"


Barwara Kothi
Again, very clean, very well run.
Mansingh Palace
It was nice and clean, but we preferred the mallee more personal places.
