We had a great holiday in Thailand. We do appreciate yours and Neha's help in planning and arranging the holiday. All the arrangements worked out very well.
Your follow up and offer for us to contact you at any time if necessary was also very reassuring.
Thanks again for your help.

Dear Ms Khushnuma,
I am back from the tour of Italy on the 8th. My wife and me enjoyed the trip very much. The planning and the information given by you was very good with detailed maps of hotel locations etc. I am satisfied with the service provided by your company and may take your services for our future trips.
Thanks and best regards,
On behalf of Gulshan and myself I would like to sincerely thank you for all you did to make our trip to Europe an enjoyable one. The details you looked into, the organizing of the tours and fixing up of hotels etc was just perfect. We had a super time and really appreciate the efforts you put in.
Keep up the good work and well done.
Gulshan and Firdaus Shroff

We all would like to Thank you All Once Again.

I apologise for not having sent this email earlier.
I just want to thank you and Bhupendra for a wonderful service during my trip to Turkey and Italy this summer. The visa procedure and documentation was handled efficiently by Mr Bhupendra. Devavrat I really have to thank you so much for the ticketing. Your suggestions helped me save around Rs. 20,000 on the airfare as you had taken time to rework my itinerary. Hence forth whenever anyone from my family travels I will book my tickets from you.
Planning my next trip soon.
A very inspiring, elevating trip. Enjoyed seeing all the places we have read and heard about over the years.
If you are familiar with bible history, this is a must!
We are back after our trip to Greece. All the planned programmes went off as per schedule and there were no hitches. The hotels selected were good.
However as a matter of information the Santorini hotel though having a beautiful location is not easy to access particularly for senior citizens as there is no direct approach to the hotel and the luggage has to be taken up and down slopes for a fair distance. …
Regarding the guides, the guide Anna and the driver Haris on the drive to Delphi and Meteora were very good but the guide on the Athens day tour to the Acropolis was not satisfactory at all. The other guides at Mykonos and Crete were good and the catamaran cruise was excellent with very efficient and friendly crew Sacha and Constantina.
The other highlight was the lunch arranged by the tour operator at Mykonos at their home and it was a very good lunch with Statis and Teta.
Thanks for organising an enjoyable trip.

Hello Mr. Joe.
Our Japan tour is successfully completed and we back yesterday.
Thanks to you and Gauri madam for full support for our documentation. Visa / Rail Pass..
We enjoyed Japan Bullet Train for seven days. No words to describe total Japan nation.
Shridhar and Smita Karandikar
I was thinking to give feedback on my own. But any way it was nice experience with your company specially because of you and Bhupendra. Planning was good.
One thing I need to point out that due to bad weather in Baden - Baden and Lucerne, rail passes were under - utilised as there was no condition to go out and roam comfortably specially with children.
Over all tour good and well suggested .
Dear Team TBI,
We would like to thank you for arranging a wonderful trip to Netherlands and Germany.
The planning was precise whether it was the visa, air tickets or itinerary. Infact we would like to specially mention Vidya's involvement in not only making all the numerous changes to the iterinary till we agreed to one, but also providing us with the support while we were travelling by attending to our request on a weekend.
Thanks once again and look forward to many more such trips with team TBI.
Rasika and Bhoopal
Thank you for doing South Korea visa in very short notice.
Dear Mr Nayak - Great job done by your team.
Hi Bhupendra / Kashu,
I would sincerely like to thank you for the wonderful service being offered to me and Kyra with all the work regrading visas and ticketing. This has enabled us not to worry and plan our trip better and allowing us to sleep in peace. Once again thanks to you guys and look forward to your continued support.
Dear Vikram and Varsha,
Thank you for the highly successful operation in Colombo for Aegean Odyssey February 6 – 10, 2016.
Your professional handling of our passengers by your local team under the supervision of Sunil was faultless. The cooperation you instigated from the hotel went a long way in providing a seamless hotel check-in and worry free stay. The staffs' care and attention shown to our passengers made it a very pleasant and memorable experience for them.
It was a pleasure to meet you and work with you in Colombo.
I look forward to working with you again in India and another successful operation.
Charles B. Markwick
We have returned from our tour. It was an amazing experience. Special thanks to you for adding joyful experience to our lives. As u have arranged it so well, we were tension free. The guide was co-operative and enthusiastic. Hotels were awesome.
Thank u very much again.

Dear Khushnuma, Pranali & Bhupendra,

Dear Rohinton Uncle,
Firstly a big thanks to you and your team for arranging for this wonderful honeymoon trip to Krabi for us. Both Shruti and I had a great time together - the stay as well as the tour package was fab!
Once again thank you Uncle! You have found in me a big fan and a loyal customer for your services for a long time to come!!
Dear Team TBI,
On behalf of Mrs Shroff n myself I would like to thank you for organizing a wonderful trip for us.
The entire experience was superb and the arrangements made by you along with your counter parts was impeccable.
We really enjoyed every property that you booked for us, every sightseeing aspect suggested was spot on and I must appreciate and report that the guide / driver Mr RAMLI was a superb person, exceptional individual, friendly, knowledgable and smiling all the time.
Overall it was an exceptional holiday and a job well done on your part.
Thank you ever so much
Happy Diwali to you all.
I had privilege to attend the bone art conclave for group of doctors when I was visiting Cyprus.
With TBi I could realize that your representative Mr. Rajender Salokhe was quite organized and hardworking taking care of each customer personally.
I was told that most of the customers were delighted with the itinerary, arrangements and the choice of Hotels. I sincerely appreciate this efficiency.
It was nice to meet you also and note about the professional approach with more focus on customer delight than the commercial aspect. I would certainly like to take your help in future and also recommend your organization as a choice of reliable tour operator.
Wish you all the best.
The trip to Cappadocia and Istanbul was great overall. Good Points:
- 1. The schedule provided was followed with great discipline. All transfers and tours were on time and as per program.
- 2. The Hotel at Istanbul – Konak Hotel was excellent. They gave us a room with great view.
- 3. The staff at both the Hotels & the tour guides were very polite and hospitable and helped us a great deal throughout the trip. They made our stay very comfortable.
- 4. All the vehicles provided for the transfers and tours were in excellent condition.
Suggestions for Improvement:
- 1. The stay at Cappadocia was short considering the travel time needed to get there. We reached the hotel in the evening. With a one full day tour planned next day, it becomes difficult for one to plan for a Hot Air Balloon ride or any other activity at Cappadocia. One more day at Cappacodia would have been helpful.
- 2. The day tours at Istanbul start a bit too early.
- 3. The Hotel room at Cappadocia (Spelunka Cave Hotel) was small. Requested for a change, but the Hotel was booked.
Siddharth has done a great job with the booking and scheduling. He has been of great help in planning the trip for me. The hotels & the tours booked were excellent.
Overall the trip was brilliant and would most definitely recommend it to my colleagues. Thanks for all your help.
Here's my experience and sharings from the trip:
While it's common for women from across the world to freely wander and discover the beauty of themselves and the world through travel, for me personally, this was huge leap away from convention and my own fears.
A trip alone! My parents thought I was going through a mental speed breaker to harbor such an idea let alone want to go through with it. Honestly, the trip materialized because Shilpa Popat from Trailblazers just owned up my rambling in the first phone conversation. She took my wishful thinking a lot more seriously than I did, and acted on it. She made it so simple and easy that all I had to do was just signup and pack my bags to an experience of a lifetime!
Contiki experience was simply amazing! People, places, Paree…. OMG! I can't stop gushing about it. Honestly, I'm still assimilating all the experiences from the trip.
I signed up the Western Rocker package which was Rome-Swiss-Paris, 2nd-8th Aug'15 and the portal door to European Universe opened up for me:
1. I love it that I was so looked after. My vegetarian diet received a special consideration and there were separate meals to meet my request with the same cheer and enthusiasm.
2. ME Time was genius idea. I could happily take off and explore anything at my own leisure without having been dragged to places I might have no interest in.
3. My Tour Manager, Greg, was superb – well read, funny, friendly and yet in charge without establishing the authority. I'd love that he bought the group together with coach games on long journeys and shared stories/facts about every country!
4. People were fantastic! The co-travelers, driver, Contiki on site team. Three cheers for all of them!
1. More number of days in a country. I'm sure if there is a tour people would sign up for it. If my tour instead of 8 was for 10-12 days, I would have had the leisure of relaxing as well.
2. More options for ME time choices. Like I would have love to go for a Tuscany Village Tour, etc had it been on the list.
On this happy note, I would like to sincerely thank everyone who made this trip possible and beautiful for me. It was truly life changing, crazy and everything that I expected it to be and may be more! Thanks Trailblazers and Contiki for giving me such beautiful memories!
A big thanks for all the help and bearing up with me for raking your brains.
The hotel at Switzerland was at a good location it had the lake opposite, the mountains on backside, the shopping mall next door, the fast food joint opposite and to add to it the bus stop and the railway station was just opposite and the staff was very polite and helpful, they also gave me the room very early at 10:00 hrs and only problem was there was no AC in the room as it was hot and they don't have even a ceiling fan, so they gave me two small table fans, they couldn't help it as it was the first time it was so hot in Switzerland.
The hotel at Paris was also good, the staff was very very helpful, they went out of their way to show me the directions of the location of the places I needed to visit and tried to help out in every small things I needed, there was lots of fast food joints nearby, it was near to the Metro station.
Overall everything was well-done. Hats off to you Siddharth, you really organized it very well.
Once again thanks thanks thanks a lot for all the help.
Sylvia D'costa, Mumbai
Good Afternoon !!
I just wished to convey my gratitude for your enormous help through TBi while planning my Great Britain tour. Crystal and Bhupendra have been a delight to work with and are prompt in response and delivery time. The experience of booking tickets and getting visa has been most seamlessly handled and would gladly recommend them to my friends.
I have no words for your kindness so I will sum it up with a simple Thank you and would be happy to reciprocate the gesture should you have any requirement that I could assist you with.
Dear Mr. Batra and Mr. Purandare,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the excellent service, provided to me and my colleagues in the emergency situation on account of typhoon Chan - Hom.
I would like to make a special mention of your Mr Nrasinha Raner who went all out in assisting us to secure tickets to return home safely and he worked diligently even over the weekend to ensure the same.
With kind regards and wishing you all the best.
Thank you very much for your support.
As always you have once again excelled in your perseverance to ensure the best service levels.
We returned safely to Delhi from our trip to Canada and we enjoyed a lot over there.
Yes, we are very much satisfied with your services and in future we will definitely be in touch with you and now you can add our name in your priority customers list….
11 May 2015
Firstly let me thank the team for helping me with my Swiss travel plan...it was an fanatic trip and very well arranged...
So it starts from the day of my first interaction with Ms Vishaka who helped me with the entire plan for my travel which included the choice of the hotels and the Swiss travel tickets...and also the internal sightseeing options in Swiss...
Then Devavrath who organised for the air travel tickets..
So my experience with you all was really satisfying and it was handled very professionally..
And we will for sure come back to you and take advice for next travel trip as and when we plan..
Once again thanks for all the help..
13 April 2015
I am back form my trip to Athens & Santorini and just wanted to thank you for making it possible. Both the hotels were very good and all the pick ups were on time. Everyone was helpful and gave us correct guidance. Overall it was perfect and we had a great time.
Thank you once again for all the arrangements!

Dear Kashmira, Sachin,
Good Morning, many thanks your email including attachments, well received, although it was only after I had reached Mhow.
For Hutokshi Marker,
Was very impressed with the speed and assuring words for the travel arrangements done at absolutely SHORT NOTICE. My sincere GRATITUDE to you and YOUR TEAM, WELL DONE !!
Love and regards
20 February 2015

Thank you for the wonderful professional services rendered to us. Hope to use your services again in the near future.

Hi Vistasp and Hutokshi,
Thank you very very much. We had a wonderful time and everyone appreciated all your arrangements. Of course there always have to be a few points but that is only an observation from all.
The Phi Phi island trip is more for people who do snorkeling. Its a full day trip with only a short one hour stop at Phi Phi for lunch. Hence to do it, if you are staying only two days in Phuket is not advisable, since Phuket is very beautiful if one likes to explore it a little, which we did and enjoyed it.
In Krabi I do not think the hotel gave us Ocean View Rooms..................we are not sure, the view of the Ocean was more from the 2nd and 3rd floor and we were on the 1st floor, I think it was cliff facing room, may be I will send you pictures when I can. Also if you have a senior citizen group be careful as there are lots of steps and walking to do to go to the rooms.
Locations of all hotels was excellent as all were very central. The driver and car ride from Phuket airport to hotel beat all our drivers.............:-)
Thanks once again for all your help.
6 February 2015
We are back from a very pleasant trip to Sri Lanka. Thank you for sorting out our flights and accommodation. We really enjoyed our stay at Mahaveli Reach Hotel in Kandy. The hotel rooms were clean and spacious and the breakfast was superb. I would definitely recommend the hotel to your other clients.
Your recommendation to stay an extra night in Bentota was spot on! It helped make our trip less hectic.
Thanks for all your help and advice.
11 January 2015
We wish you all the best for 2015!
Once again we would like to thank you so much for organising our perfect trip to Sri Lanka, we spent a wonderful time during our vacation.
The driver picked us up from the airport immediately after arrival, he spoke very good English and the car was modern and very big. The hotels you had booked for us were modern, clean and very beautifully located. The sightseeing, e.g. Kandy tooth temple or Sigiriya (pls see attached picture), was very interesting; we had local guides who told us a lot about the sights and their history. We enjoyed tea plugging and tea tasting while staying at an old tea factory for two nights. The most beautiful beach was located at the east coast of Sri Lanka: Passikudah Bay. :-) I would recommend to anyone to book via TBI, as consulting and organization went perfectly well!
This year in summer we plan to visit Namibia. We would be very glad, if you could again support us in organizing our trip!
All the best to you, your colleagues and your familiy!
18 December 2014
Hope you are doing well. We would like to thank you for your support provided during EITS 2014. We really appreciate the efforts you have provided for the last minute bookings/confirmations.
EITS 2014 was a great success with over 250 participants from India, Germany, France and other parts of Europe.
19th November 2014
Thank you for helping me out with tickets, visas and hotel stay. It's been a very good experience with TBI.

Good morning Vishakha,
This is to place on record the wonderful efforts put in by you and your team to make our trip to London-Leicester and Switzerland from the 17th October to 1st November 2014 a memorable and trouble-free one. My husband Mr. Narayan and I express our sincere thanks to you and Bhupendra to help and guide us at every point and clearing all our queries and doubts with prompt replies. God bless you and your team and organisation always.....
Engelberg: The apartment in Engelberg is indeed big spacious neat and fully equipped and has the most exotic views of the Alps. Zurich: Also, at the time of checking out of Novotel Hotel in Zurich on 1st November, they collected 10 CHF saying that there is some city tax which was not paid. Could you please clarify on the same.
Sending herewith a few snaps of my husband, kids and myself which makes it quite evident that we enjoyed the trip.
Thanking you and the entire team of Trail Blazer Tours once again.
With warm regards,
2nd November 2014
It was our first trip abroad, we went to 3 countries and I can't begin to thank Trail Blazer Tours India Pvt Ltd for organizing such a well planned and smooth trip for us. All our bookings were more than satisfactory and I would specially like to thank Mona and Sudhakar for always being prompt with all communications and paperwork guiding us throughout the trip and before it as well. Thank you guys this trip wouldn't be this perfect without you guys. Looking forward to planning my next trip with Trail Blazer.

Dear Ms. Marker,
I have been your client for the last couple of years, though not a very large volume client. I have been dealing with Ms. Crystal and Mr. Bhupendra for all my tickets and Visa needs.
My experience during my dealings with them for all my travel needs has been fabulous. Despite me not being a corporate or a large ticket client, they treated me well and have responded to all my request proactively and promptly. A special mention about Bhupendra, who went out of the way to help me when I was facing some trouble with my Visa processing with the Cyprus embassy. Without his help and support, it would have been more difficult to obtain the same. Similarly, Crystal, helped me and my family get shifted to another airline at no cost when our return flight from Larnaca was cancelled by the airlines for no rhyme or reason.
People like them make people like us, still deal with offline travel agents who give us the comfort that we can fall back on travel agents when we get in to trouble. Online will be the future, but offline has the human touch which makes the difference.
Kudos to you that you have such wonderful people and an excellent team. While I am relocating to Cyprus, I will certainly miss their services and hope when I return to India, I would connect with your organisation and comeback as a customer again.
Thanks and regards,
13th September 2014

Thank you TBI for making all the arrangements and making my trip to Europe possible.
You guys really took care of my requirements and met my expectations.
You have been a pleasure to work with.
4th August 2014
Dear Shilpa and Bhupendra,
Hope everything is fine with you. We have enjoyed Cosmos tour to Europe and have equally enjoyed our stay with our family in London. We appreciate the co operation given by you both in making our trip a great success. In future, whenever we are on holidays we shall contact you for our bookings, etc.
With best Regards,

As Hoshi is out of town today, I am writing to you on his behalf, and from all of us. We wanted to say a big "Thank You" to you for all your kind assistance in organizing our trip to Singapore. Hoshi, I and our kids had a very comfortable stay and we had a great time.
The hotel Orchard Parade was very good, our room was large and comfortably accommodated all four of us. Also the coaches for airport transfers, and pick up and drop everyday were on time and their staff was very courteous and helpful.
Thanks again for organizing a wonderful trip to Singapore!
With best regards,

r /> Dear Gauri,
We returned from Europe trip on 2nd morning. Everything went well as planned. Euro rail booking done by you was perfect. We did reservation for Bern to Geneva section at Lucerne railway station which you could not do it from here. Thanks for your guidance and support.
3rd June 2014
Thanks for all the help. The trip was excellent and all the bookings were OK.
Just a suggestion - do not entertain booking a hotel close to Roma Termini, how much ever the client insists. Its extremely unsafe, especially the metro in late hours. Walking out of the station is an invitation to be robbed. Also the hotels are very small and not very safe. All other parts of the tour were great.
Once again thanks for all the help and getting the bookings done at a short notice.
2nd June 2014
Hi Monavasha & Yashwant,
It was just amazing the way you arranged everything for us for our trip to UK.
All was well planned and we did not waste a bit of time because of all the arrangements.
Hotels were up to the mark. Hat's off for you both!
You made our holidays memorable for our life.
20th May 2014
Thanks. It was an excellent Globus tour to Scotland. Hotels were top class except Inverness Thistle.
Crowd was excellent , all elderly from US. Dinner whenever included was also having veg menu- but no choice -did not make difference to us.
When we had to go out for dinner we could have Indian restaurant just across hotel street. Overall excellent. London hotel Mariott Regents Park was also very good and has one restaurant and that too Indian! !!! Hotel is just 5 minutes walking to underground. 15 minutes taxi to Euston and Kings cross.
28th April 2014
Boys from Oz thank you for a wonderfully organized trip to Phuket. Thank you to all the TBI staff for making the trip a memorable one for all my friends. Well done.
16th April 2014
We did not receive any negative feedback on any tours or coach or guides - which is an excellent result for a port like Colombo!
Thank you very much for all your efforts and the great operation!!! :-)
Many thanks & kind regards,
28th March 2014
It is clear and we have finally decided that a new visa need not be applied for Mr Reddy as the explanation from TBI is very clean and clear. He does not need to apply for a visa till he leaves Japan on or before 23 April 2014.
Thanks to you and your team (esp Bhupendra san) for taking this issue on priority and helping us out.
I am happy that we work with companies like yours who go the extra mile to respond to the customers, thanks again.
25th March 2014
Good Morning Varsha
I hope you are well? All I have had is great feedback from all tours in Colombo, Kandy and Pinawala. Thanks again for a great day.
Have a great afternoon.
6th February 2014
Good morning Varsha
Good to see you and Vikram again yesterday in Colombo.
Thanks for all your help and efforts in making the day a great success. Very good feedback from all tours - especially the Ceylon Tea tour, very well received.
Great working with you again - thanks again for everything.
31st January 2014
Dear Madhavi and Vishakha
The Sri Lanka trip was wonderful! All three hotels were spectacular, each in a different way.
We enjoyed many sights, including the tea tour that was arranged for us at the Tea Trails planters' bungalow. This was particularly appreciated, because many of the drives were much longer than the estimates. In fact the drive to the Tea Trails took most of a day, and we were unable to stop along the way as I thought we would. Because of this, and our desire to see how tea was processed, we did the great tea tour the following day, necessitating our skipping Nuwara Eliya. In the end, that worked out fine, as we spent a great day close to Tea Trails without another big drive.
Other highlights included a night nature tour conducted by the in-house naturalist at the Jetwing Vil Uyana, another beautiful property. Bhikhaji, the naturalist and I were able to fine four of the very rare lorises climbing on trees in the dark, night forest. We loved climbing Sigirya, borrowed bicycles to explore the Vil Uyana and had many other adventures. The Fortress Hotel, south of Galle was so beautiful that we would have been happy to stay there longer. At all three hotels the food was wonderful, too.
Thanks for arranging a great trip.
25th December 2013
Hi Kashmira & Rohitdas,
A big THANK YOU to you both for your very willing help & immediate action last Saturday night & Sunday with the ticket amendments for Mrs. Armaity Chinoy & family.
Believe me these VIP passengers have been greatly impressed with the manner in which you handled every demand.
It is really this assistance & service like yours that keeps me in business.
Thank you again & wish you a Merry Christmas & you & yours a very Happy New Year!!
26th September 2013
Dear Mr Rajesh,
Pls accept my heartfelt thanks and appreciations for a wonderful job. Am sure we would have not succeeded without you.
Right from the Hyd airport…Hongkong…Macao…and managing to send entire group one day in advance due to Typhoon….is well appreciated by group also.
I also must mention that the patience and the team work which you have is marvellous.
I have travelled to few destinations with other groups, but never seen this kind of team. YOU ARE THE BEST.
By looking at your team work I feel…. TBI is not only Trail Blazer tours India but also Terrific Boys with Intelligence. It was a great time I had with you and thanks a million for everything.
27th August 2013
Greetings from Gulfoil.
It gives me immense pleasure to say Thanks to you & your team for the support provided to us at the 11th hour for booking the return tickets (Hongkong to Mumbai & Hongkong to Moscow) for Mr. & Mrs. Sufial Gazi when Cathay Pacific Airlines refused him to board the flight scheduled at 1 am as the return tickets were not booked from our London Office.
Special Thanks to Mr. Adnaan Kakkalmeli & yourself for excellent co-ordination & Team work to get the tickets issued on time & our guest could fly yesterday.
5th August 2013
Dear Siddharth and Shilpa,
I along with all my family members would like to thank u for d excellent services provided by you and TBi for our trip to Mauritius. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation.
Your services right from the flight bookings to our hotel stay to our sight seeing arrangements were so well done that we didn't have to worry about anything.
I am definitely gonna refer TBi to my friends and relatives for their vacations and connect back with you for my future holiday plans.
Thank u once again for making our trip so enjoyable, pleasurable and hassle free.

Subject : Appreciation for TBI as a Business Associate
Dear Nihal San,
There are several reasons for the growth but one most important one has been the continued motivation to our managers as well as channel partners. At MSIL Management, we see this as our biggest challenge area (to suitably / appropriately reward the performers / Achievers from time to time). Travel Incentive programs are the most recognized reward. We find this very motivating and our managers and channel partners look forward to it every year.
Naturally to make these effective, a good travel destination management company is a MUST and we look forward to them as our business partners to enhance our growth.
As you are aware, we have been using the services of TBI, (Trail Blazer Tours India Private Limited) as our preferred Travel partner in many of these Incentive / Motivational trips, both for Domestic as well as International Destinations (New Zealand, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Cruising, Spain, Italy, Dubai, Japan, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand etc). The destinations, so far, experienced by us under your suggestion have been simply outstanding.
Needless to mention, Team TBI anticipates & plans meticulously, understands the needs and expectations of the customer - from food to stay, from travel to sightseeing and meeting requirements. Many a times, the team is so well versed with our requirements that they point out the missed items in our checklist!!
We wish to place on record our sincere appreciation and extend our very best wishes for future endeavour and look forward for a long & healthy business relationship.
11th July 2013
My experience of Norway in a nutshell and Bergen to Kirkenes, the voyage by train, luxury bus and the boat and the ship was a wonderful journey and a picture perfect experience. It is a one time must see - the Arctic in Norway, Stockholm a beautiful city & richness in culture, is a wonderful experience. Germany - Hamburg and Frankfurt are quiet and wonderful cities to be seen, different kind of colourful buildings and beautiful cities. Some of my beautiful memories captured, attaching some pictures for your reference.
A big thank you to Shilpa Popat and others at TBI for a perfect and well set itinerary without any hindrance or issues or hurdles.
Tks N Rgds.

Dear Sid and Amentha,
My wife and I thank you for facilitating a wonderful holiday in Turkey. Sid's walking the extra mile is particularly appreciated. The Tour Director, Aukut Gun was Excellent. Serdar, the driver too, was very good. Both have been acclaimed in the feedback form.
We did mention 2 shortcomings – regarding the Grand Onder Hotel in Kusadasi & Altinyazi Hotel in Avanos ( which was incorrectly stated as in Konya).
Since I am not finding the tour-papers, I request you to forward this e-mail to Cosmos HQ, and M/S Gun & Serdar.
Our renewed thanks, and Best Regards to all.
1st July 2013
Just a note to tell you we had a wonderful time! I will send you our photo tomorrow.
The hotels that you chose were good and the places wonderful.
We enjoyed our stay in Paris and the Paris Pass was very useful, especially as we traveled a lot on metros and RERs and visited some monuments. The Loire Valley day trip was stunning with its gardens, charming chateaus and the picturesque villages that we passed on our way. The Disney hotel that you chose - Hotel Dreamcastle, was good and we had a beautiful view from our room.
Chamonix was simply captivating and sublime. We had a great time there! Our hotel was good, easily accessible and centrally located.
And there was more to come with Nice! The beach is stunning with the waters in 3 colors! Our day trip to Eze-Monaco was classy like the houses of some of the world's richest. We believe, and this can be easily true for many, that Eze is the most charming place in the world!
Monaco is the richest country with plush villas and exotic gardens. And who can miss the Mediterranean climate that brings with it the sweet smelling air of fruit laden trees and flowers that are in full bloom. We loved south of France!
Then a day in Avignon was the perfect rest/lazy day where we let the city soak in, before we left to go back to Paris to return to Mumbai. The connections to all these cities by TGV was a blessing, also made a lot cheaper by the EuroRail pass. However, I wouldn't recommend the Ibis Roissy CDG airport hotel.
Many thanks for all of your help!

Honeymoon is one of the most special time in any person's life and to make it perfect you need to have all the elements falling in place just as you have expected. For us, it was very important that we get to experience togetherness, love, serenity, fun, adventure and comfort.
We got all that we wanted for our honeymoon, and this was truly possible because of the meticulous way TBI planned and guided us, it's very rare that any travel consultant would care for your expectations and give you exactly what you wanted. The reason our honeymoon was more than relishing was because we didn't have any trouble following the itinerary in terms of commuting through different places, walking thru all the lovely sites and experiencing the most fun-filled moments.
We would like to thank the whole team of TBI and especially Madhavi for engraving the loveliest moments in our memory.
Thank You and We Love You!!!
24th May 2013
I am extremely pleased with the entire tour, especially the way it unfolded. Going from Italy to Switzerland seemed like a natural progression from man-made mammoth structures to great scenic landscapes!
More importantly, the entire trip was very well planned which helped us cover all the important destinations in a short span. Your real-time support was also of great value for us.
Many thanks for arranging a wonderful trip… Honeymoon surely will be a memorable one!

Thank you very much for planning a perfect holiday for my hubby and self. Each and every sightseeing programme went off very well, without a single hitch. You had made optimum use of the time we spent in Greece and am I really glad that I could do so much sightseeing with only seven days!!
The four day trip to Corinth Canal, Theatre of Epidaurus, Olympia, Delphi and Meteora were our highlights and though there was a lot of walking involved, we loved it. Even the three island cruise was just perfect. The hotel was situated at the base of Acropolis and we could just walk to it when we wanted to. Anna in Greece was very helpful when she phoned to ask of our stay and give us some suggestions.
Thanks very much for organizing such a perfect holiday.
12th May 2013
It was a very enjoyable and wonderful trip to Singapore, a very beautiful country. We all enjoyed every moment of it mainly due to your impeccable arrangements and guidance. I take this opportunity to thank you personally on behalf of my family who made the trip.
Look forward to be associated with TBI in future.
9th May 2013
Its been a pleasure in dealing with Trail Blazers. We are indeed grateful for the support & co-operation extended by you and your team Shilpa, Siddharth, Bhupendra and Kashmira. Your team efforts are much appreciated - as making these arrangements at such a short notice is indeed a commendable job. Thanking you all once again. Kudos!!
1st April 2013
It was lovely to meet you and Vikram yesterday.
Like mentioned in my report, I was pleasantly surprised by Colombo and what the tours had to offer. I do consider Colombo a success!!.
I would like to thank you for your great organisation and hard work.
18th March 2013
Dear Mrs Marker,
For quite some time I have been working thru TBI and thru Ms Kashmira Batty in your organisation and I must say that till date I have not met a more sincere, helpful , polite and efficient person.
She has helped me and my daughter Kyra in all aspects of work at every single stage and at times when I have bothered her on holidays and Sundays also she has willingly assisted and managed to get our work done.
I must say that this lady is a real asset to us as customers and I wish her all the very best and would like to congratulate you on having a team or in this case an individual who is a pleasure to work with.
Please do convey my sincere thanks to Kashmira on our behalf.
3rd February 2013
Thanks for the entire arrangements in Singapore. It was the most memorable trip for us. Everything was planned nicely, we didn't encounter any problem. The Star Virgo Cruise was awesome experience, it was more than expected.
We would look forward to have you as our travel partner.
Thanks and Regards,

On behalf of the team here in Ft. Lauderdale, thank you and your team so much for all the care and concern for our guests on Voyages to Antiquity’s first foray to India. We are sincerely appreciative of the monumental attention to detail and the amount of work it has taken to make this a successful first program.
Of course, like all first times, there’s bound to be room for improvement. And from an operations point of view, if there is anything that we here in Ft. Lauderdale can improve upon to assist with the forward planning, please do let us know.
Best regards and warm wishes for a happy and healthy New Year.

This is just to say that, WE HAD AN AMAZING & AWESOME trip to JAPAN... I have travelled to about 48 countries...Have travelled to all continents except ANTARTICA.... Many of our travels have been arranged by many different travel agents...
BUT TRIP TO JAPAN WAS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL...UNIQUE...AMAZING...AWESOME... We were just 8 of us but had a whole bus for ourselves...
There was an English speaking guide from morning till evening who was extremely helpful..
Surely.... for my ANTARTICA trip, would contact u guys again..
TONNES & TONNES OF THANX...

We had a wonderful trip to China thanks to your planning of every detail in every city we visited.
Every suggestion you made was excellent, as you considered our budget, time constraints, and personal likes and dislikes. We also truly appreciate that this was reflected in the itinerary you put together for us. Everywhere we went from the airports, to hotels, to the acrobat show and dumpling banquet, the process was as smooth as planned. We can't thank you enough for making our holiday such a great experience, with a lots of good memories to cherish and share with our family and friends.
We would like to put on record the personal care and attention that we received from Ms Bloem in China. She is a superb example of true professionalism. She made sure that we were enjoying our stay and all the arrangements made for us and she was totally responsive to the concerns we had along the way. When our daughter needed medication in Beijing, she patiently guided us through our visit to the chemists even though it was the mid Autumn Festival and an important national holiday. She was just wonderful and we would've had a hard time doing it without her. Ms Bloem's help, kindness and warmth really made us feel at home and enhanced the quality of our experiences in China.
Here are some highlights of our trip which you may like to include in itineraries for your future clients:
- A 90 minute visit to the Shanghai Museum which is the country's finest museum. It has very good English signage but it's worth hiring the audio guide. Very informative and inspiring...gives you a good idea of the culture and people of China. (Admission free).
- ERA Intersection of time ( A spectacular multi-media Acrobatic Show).
- For the best view of the dazzling New Shanghai go for a drink to New Heights, a brasserie at Three on The Bund (7th floor).
- Visit the Great Wall from the Mutiyanu section which you reach in a cable car instead of a breathless climb. There are some lovely walks on the Wall and unforgettable views from the watch towers. Also, a stroll down the Sacred Way (close to the Ming Tombs) is beautiful and serene.
- Walking distance from the Novotel Peace Hotel is Wangfujing, an exciting pedestrian plaza lined with shops, restaurants and also the Donghuamen Night Food Street which has lively stalls of the most amazing snacks (crickets, scorpions, starfish, silk worms, lizards, baby sparrow...all on a stick!!).
Overall the China trip was a wonderful experience for our family - and we were absolutely dazzled by what we saw. We are home with lots of wonderful memories and will certainly think of you and Trailblazers for our next trip, which we hope will be very very soon!
With warm regards,

Dear MS. Crystal Dsouza,
I have just returned from my trip to USA and Canada for which TBI had arranged my airticket, insurance and Canadian Visa.
These services ran smoothly during my tour and for the same I would like to thank you and TBI staff for efficient services.You were cordial, well-informed and prompt in handling my requirement. Do convey my thanks to the executive who handled visa.
Please inform the insurance company that the wired luggage number tags need to be secured with something stronger. The wire broke during the first leg and then the tag couldnt be tied to the bag.
20 September 2012
Dear Mr. Mendhura & Ms. Dsouza,
Thank you for all your help in getting the visa, insurance and tickets done. It was a pleasure working with you and your promptness, professionalism & comprehensiveness is very well appreciated. You made this very easy for our parents and us. Look forward to working again with you in the future. Good luck with all your endeavors.
28 August 2012
Thanks Dear for all the arrangements which were Excellent. Both our hotels at Lake Como-- and San Gimiano were good.
Excellently located, allowed us to enjoy both--- the lake as well as the Greenery in the Tuscan region. The reception on arrival was well arranged. We did not waste any time after a long international flight. The hotel even gave us one room at 11am as an early check in.(Lake Como).
Customer service was excellent in both hotels. Excellent staff, very helpful and obliging. Rooms were excellent. Large, spacious and well air conditioned, so needed as the weather in both places was HOT!!!!!! Breakfast in both hotels was EXCELLENT.The staff tried their best to cater to each and every need of all 8 of us.
The local guides who assisted us on day trips were also good. They were friendly and helpful. Even the drivers were good and explained a lot in each place.
In all, our trip was excellent. My cousins from Canada also liked the arrangements and have asked me to compliment you all. We Thank you and your office for all the help specially when there were so many changes and adjustments from our side.
Vishaka and Shilpa were extremely helpful, kind and patient. And we all appreciated that.
THANKS TO ALL OF YOU.
Look forward to more trips arranged by you.
28 August 2012
How're you? Just wanted to drop in a note of thanks to you and Happy for the wonderful plan for our Europe holiday!!
You have such a crystal idea about Europe, Eurail and everything a traveler could ask for- it's admirable!! The Eurail pass is a blessing and we finally managed a lot in the limited no. of days !!
Thanks once again for the impeccable plan, tickets and every help for this memorable trip!! I hope we can plan more holidays with your help in the near future too!!
A million thanks once again!!
23 July 2012
I would like to profusely thank you for all the help, service and cooperation you have been giving me and my kids and Srinath for such a long time. Your efficiency and hard work and levels of service are highest and you have always done so with a smile and willingness.
As a customer I totally appreciate this and thank you for the same. At times if I have called you at inconvenient times and disturbed you, I would like to apologise for the same and thank you for extending me a warm reply and helpful advice at that time.
Please do keep up the same levels in future.
10 July 2012
Dear Vistasp, Rashna, and Gauri,
This short message to thank you all for your very professional and timely guidance, which allowed for a thoroughly well-planned vacation for our family.
Right from the guidance on airline bookings, rail bookings, hotel recommendations, and your very prompt assistance with the cruise bookings, we appreciate your promptness in attending to all matters.
The Royal Caribbean 7-night Norwegian Fjords cruise is an itinerary I would highly recommend - the scenery is amazing, the port-venues extremely scenic, and yet easily accessible.
We were lucky to have great weather, which made the trip all the more enjoyable!
Thank you all again!
4 July 2012
Thanks a lot. I was very happy with all arrangements, everything went off well and we enjoyed our trip to Sri Lanka last month, thoroughly. I will definitely come back to you for more such experiences.
6 June 2012
How are you? I am sending this mail to give you feedback on our latest tour to South Africa and Dubai.
The entire tour was arranged and organised so nicely that we enjoyed our 2 weeks holidays a lot. The hotels selection and schedule of flights and road transport were extremely comfortable and pleasant. Sabi Sabi Little Bush Lodge and Table Mountain hotel were the highlights of the tour.
This is a sincere thanks from me and my family to you and Bonnie. Thanks once again for everything.
25 May 2012
Thanks for a very well arranged trip. Everything went without a hitch, thanks to your perfect arrangements.
Will try to give you feedback about the points you have given below.
1. Turkish airlines was punctual, and services were very good. However the flight from Bombay had very poor meals -- just a cold sandwich on take off and another 3 hours later. The check in process was smooth.
2. You can certainly recomend our hotels
a) Hotel Anna -- Helsinki -- good room & breakfast.
b) Hotel 2 Kroner-Stockholm-very good room.
c) Hotel Comfort Xpress--Oslo, expensive breakfast.
d) Heimly Pensinnat--Flam --- fantastic views!
e) Basic Hotel -- Bergen, very good room but no breakfast.
f) Hotel CabINN city -- Copenhagen - small rooms.
All the hotels were very well located, central and close to tourist destinations and restaurants.
The Silja Cruise was excellent in all respects -- would definitely recommend it!
The highlight of the trip was the train journey Norway in a Nutshell -- fantastic scenery, very comfortable train ride, smooth connections and well worth the price. Flam was most enjoyable owing to its great scenery and good walks.
We would like to draw your attention to the city tours arranged by you--
a) The Stockholm city tour was not enjoyable as we did not get down from the bus at all and only saw the sights from inside. Would definitly not recommend it.
b) The 2 hr Fjord Cruise from Oslo was not a fjord cruise at all, just a bay cruise, and can be skipped.
c) We also recommend visiting these countries after the 15/20th of May as it is really cold weather before that and sometimes rains as well.
Madhavi, you have made very intelligent and exceptionally efficient arrangements for us, for which we must thank you.
8 May 2012
On behalf of the Max Bupa team, wanted to thank you for a great job done on our Spain trip. Everything was well organised and well taken care of and the team has indeed enjoyed itself.
I'm aware that none of this was easy and at times there were a lot of erratic demands from us as well but you managed everything with a smile.
Once again, many thanks from all of us and you truly deserve to take a bow!
10 April 2012
Thank you Vikram and Varsha for the successful operation!
The Immigration delay was a real challenge, but guests in general were very happy with the tours. The full AC operation also helped a lot for the general guest satisfaction.
Probably see you next year in Sri Lanka & Cochin!

It was also a pleasure to meet you again today and thank you for all the hard work both you and Vikram put in to making this a successful call. I spoke to a lot of passengers on the quayside who were very pleased with their tours, the buses that you provided and the guides.
Thanks again Varsha.

Hi Shilpa and Sid,
Neeli and I had an awesome vacation and we loved the properties selected by you guys:
1) The Khao Sok Accommodation (Romance Tree House room) is very beautiful place, very beautiful tree houses, very nice locals and a truly divine place for 3 days. Did canooing and it was mind blowing. You must recommend this property to people, they will love it.
2) In Phuket the Deevana Patong hotel (Deluxe Spa wing ) was very nice, our room which had a jacuzi outside was a beautiful room (the jacuzi did not have hot water which was sad) the hotel was very close to the beach, we went for Phuket night market twice which happens only on weekends and it was a great huge market. The place, locals, hiring the bikes was great fun. Loved the property and the room was very nice. Lots to do in Phuket and it was just sheer fun. ATV was a mindblowing experience.
3) In Bangkok we got upgraded to a premium room which was mind blowing, at the Holiday Inn Silom. The room was very luxurious and the hotel was very posh. Loved the hotel and the room, we went to MDK mall which was huge and great for shopping, we also went to the night market which was ok.
All the transfers were done on time and the car drivers were very polite and helped us with our bags. Thai airways did not have personal screens on the seats which was sad, next time we will confirm with airlines for the same. Overall we had a great experience and worth all the money and effort put into it. We will never forget this vacation for sure.
THANK YOU GUYS for such great planning and you guys are our fixed travel agents for life:)
17 March 2012
Dear Vijay/ Vibha,
We reached Dubai, safely yesterday night.
The trip went off very well and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thanks to Vibha's meticulous planning and precise instructions we were able to manage everything without a hitch. The coordination between the train timings, arrival at destinations and the sightseeing trips were like clock work. Kindly also convey our appreciation to your ground operators.
I am sending you one of our photographs taken at Lucerne, with that please accept our thanks once again for everything. It was another well executed job out of the TBi stable. Keep up the good work.
16 March 2012
May I take the privilege to congratulate team TBI for completing 5 successful years of operation. I must say the service rendered by TBI team is per excellence and worth mentioning to organisations who are in business of service that includes HHLI. I would also like to thank you for inviting me to join the celebration in Delhi today, unfortunately due to some prior commitment, I have to be in Mumbai this week and hence can not make it to the function. Please convey my sincerely apology to Mr.Homa Mistry. On behalf of HHLI, I wish the entire team of TBI all the very best.
March 09, 2012
Dear Jehangir, Dear Homa,
Our heartiest congratulations for having received from the President of India the prestigious National Tourism Award.
No one more than TBI deserves such a recognition.
We are sharing your joy.
With our admiration to share with everyone of the great team of TBI.
February 17, 2012
I would like to thank you very much for all the cooperation you have given me and even worked from home to help me get tickets for Kyra/Srinath's return done so fast. Your efficiency is commendable and your levels of service are very high.
God bless you and thank you once again.
December 22, 2011
Writing this note to express my thanks and appreciation for the smooth handling of the entire STR Visa process by your designated officer Sandeep. He was at all times well informed, proactively kept me upto date on the status - and was very precise and realistic in his time commitments. Given that the timelines were so tight, this was critical. All my interactions with him were on -time, very polite and precise.
Wonderful to see a man as young as him shouldering the responsibility with such a cool head, and systematic ways. Hope he keeps up the great work, as he progresses in his career.
November 01, 2011
Many Thanks for organising my 18 day visit with family to Spain and Paris. Due to TBI's efforts the trip was practically hassle free.
1. The Air tickets and the Eurail /TGV passes were booked on the dates conveyed by me and changed when ever I requested.
2. The apartments/hotels were booked at economic prices and very comfortable. Only the hotel at Seville, the Alcora, was quite far from the town centre and we had to rely on an hourly bus shuttle to ferry us to the town centre. Since Seville has no Metro this should be kept in mind. The other 3 places were ideally situated with the metro stations being just outside.
3. If TBI could have tied up for the F.E. and SIM card also it would have been a complete package.
4. Close and prompt coordination by you was very good and helped make our trip extremely enjoyable.
October 25, 2011
Thank you very much for the fantastic trip organised by you and your team to South Africa from 29th Sept to 16th Oct 2011, everything was well organised hotels were all good met some intersting people. Safari was good met the big 5. I thoroughly enjoyed! Thanks a million once again. Please thank your team who has put their effort together to make the pleasant trip on my behalf. I am looking forward to another trip!!!
Wishing you Happy Diwali!

Dear Vistasp and Hutokshi,
We have returned from Singapore. Thank you very very much, the trip was perfect. All your arrangements were excellent.
Please do make a special mention to your supplier that their guide Ms. Foo Kit Loo made the trip interesting. Her courtesy, knowledge and consideration towards my family made it very comfortable for us to enjoy this vacation.
I would like to mention here that the Swissotel has a lounge for people who want to do a late check out with no extra cost. So there is no need for a person to make arrangements at the airport.
September 30, 2011
Just back in India after a wonderful vacation in Bali.
Thank you so much for all the arrangements - the agent in Bali had arranged a nice car with a driver + English speaking guide.The tours on the 3 days as per itinenary were well organised and we really enjoyed visiting all the places.The best part was the Nusa Dua beach resort - it is simply great property. It is on beach with Westin hotel resort & Lagoona resort adjacent to it and all 3 have a common private beach with common access. The Nusa Dua Beach resort has nice rooms ( we were upgraded ), good service and nice food.
Overall a great trip coupled with our vacation in Singapore with my son, watching F1 race. Thank you once again with all your help and support.
September 02, 2011
Just wanted to write a thank you note for all your help with regards to our France trip.
Of the four places we visited, the two that we liked the most (Chamonix and Loire Valley) were Meher’s recommendations – do let her know. I remember Meher had said that we must do self drive through Loire, something I was very hesitant about – but that too worked out really well. If anyone is going to Loire, you should recommend Chateau Chissay for staying. This is a real chateau that has been converted into a hotel. It is a 10 minute drive from the place that we stayed in. The rooms start at as little as 170 Euros a night. We paid 125 Euros and stayed at Auberge du Bon Laboureur which was also totally fantastic.
The behind the scenes tour of the Eiffel was very interesting – in the absence of a guide we wouldn’t have enjoyed half as much.
Also, Raj was very helpful. Do thank him on our behalf. We has excess luggage and needed to buy a bag before getting on the flight back to India. We asked him from where we could pick up a cheap bag and his advice was really useful.
We explored every nook and cranny (i.e. hours and hours of walking) of Chamonix, Nice, and Paris on foot – so if there’s anyone who is going to any of these places, you can direct the person to Varsha or me for tips and advice.
Varsha and I look forward to your assistance with regards to South Africa.
Thanks once again.
August 24, 2011
Hi Meher / Hi Ashumi,

Thanx again & regards,

This is to place on record our sincere apperciation towards your organization and in particular Mr Bhaskar Wagware, Mr Rajender Salokhe and Mr Rajesh Nayak for managing Internationak Study Tour for our members and their families.
You are aware that the members left for Europe after facing lots of problems to get Visa, etc. but in the end, the group visited almost all places as decided and concluded the tour with success. Like many others, the major role was played by your organization in making it a great success.
We have already discussed with your staff about certain suggestions made by the participants of this tour which we are sure will be considered by you in future to improvise the quality.
Everyone st BCAS who participated in this tour and involved in managing the same, joins me to thank you for yours services.
July 05, 2011
Our tour to Beijing between May 22, 2011 – May 25, 2011 was fantastic and a memorable one. I wish to compliment you and the entire team at TBI for making the trip a memorable one.
I have spoken to all the distributors and wish to put on record a very positive feedback about the entire tour right from pick up arrangements, choice of hotel and restaurants and sight-seeing as well as shopping.
The arrangements made by you and your team for our Gala Dinner on May 24, 2011 were indeed a splendid effort on your part and entire gathering enjoyed a lot!
With warm regards,
July 05, 2011
I sincerely thank you and your team for the excellent planning and arrangements made for our recent trip to Europe. Everything went according to the plan and all of us were very happy with the perfect arrangements made by your team.
July 04, 2011
We had an excellent trip and the highlight was Chamonix - THE `MONT BLANC’. Meher, thanks for suggesting us. Hotels and their locations were good. Les Balcons de Savoy and the one in Grindelwald (facing Eiger) were the best.
We enjoyed Italy though it was very hot (Florence temp – 40-45 C) and crowded with tourists. South Italy was beautiful (Amalphi drive was awesome).
Switzerland, of course, is beautiful. We visited Mt Titlis, Zermatt and Gonergrat. On last day, we went to Montreux just for 2-3 hours. We loved it.
Thanks for all your help/suggestions for making our trip so successful and memorable.
With warm Regards
July 04, 2011
Dear Meher & Shilpa,
Once again THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOO Much for making our trip super fabulous and memorable. Couldnt have done without your help & knowledge. You had organized it so well. The trip went flawlessly, & thanks for recommending certain places.
Meher..How do I thank you for Chamonix..I am so speechless, I have no words to express about that place. Its the best destination I have ever visited in my life. Sorrento was never a must visit place on my list..but thanks to you, I am glad I saw such a wonderful & beautiful place.
Shilpa..Thank you for organizing such a fabulous trip for us, your patience with us especially with all the changes we made. Those endless calls....
The hotels were excellent throughout..v v nice..everything went well..Couldnt have done it without you guys..
Yes I now look forward to organizing our next trip..
June 9, 2011
I travelled to Turkey with Rinki and Maithili. Sorry for this delayed communication caused by my being away from base as soon as I came back.
Since Maithili and Rinki have given all the feedback, I just want to say a BIG THANK YOU.
Our small disappointment - we couldn't have a tram ride in Istanbul as the tickets are sold only thru' automatic machines and we just couldn't manage these! Also you could give your Turkey customers a tip - the Turks appear very European and this can be misleading!! They expect their customers to bargain in a very Eastern, Asian way! They also expect tips and this was a problem not knowing how much to give.
Overall we had a most enjoyable and memorable holiday leaving us hungry for more (I am also 68 like Rinki and was glad to survive all the walking!!) Despite being vegetarian, I miss Turkish food. The quality and freshness of whatever we ate is sadly not easy to get here.
Thanks again and kind regards,
June 03, 2011
I had a great time and Siddharth, must say job well done. Everything was according to plan and time, did not have least bit of problem. I will recommend TBI to my friends also. All hotel selections especially Schweizerhof was fantastic.
May 24, 2011
At the outset, I would like to congratulate you and your company “Trail Blazer Tours India Pvt Ltd” (TBi) for making excellent arrangements for the Dealers Incentive Tours (70 PAX) to Malaysia in this year. Our dealers really enjoyed the trip and the stay, food and other arrangements were exceptionally good.
Mr. Manu, Asst. Manager, the tour coordinator from Cochin had become part of our family due to his involvement and commitment in the tour.
We enjoyed the new business relationship with TBi
May 02, 2011
On behalf of all the girls, I would like to thank you for the fantastic, enjoyable and extremely memorable holiday we had in Sri Lanka. The Itinerary was perfect - all the locations that were chosen were scenic and had a breathtaking beauty of their own. From the Elephant orphanage at Pinnawala where we saw the herd of elephants feeding and bathing by the river to climbing the flight of stairs to the palace of King Kasha at Sigriya, each day was an experience in itself.
The elephant back safari at Harabana was thrilling as it was a first time experience for most of us. Some good additions to the Itinerary was the trek to the World's end at the Horton Plains - I would recommend it to your future clients. The only qualification is that one needs to be physically fit for this trek. The white water rafting over the Kelani river at Kitugala was a superb which ended up with all of us floating in the river. I must mention that the two guides who helped us with the white water rafting were supportive and encouraging and helped most of us get rid of our fears and inhibitions.The hills of Nuwara Eliya gave us a breath of clear mountain air and we also got to visit the tea plantations. Our trip ended beautifully with the visit to the beach at Negombo.
Hotel Galadari in Colombo was the best hotel in the Itinerary - all credit goes to Shilpa who took extra effort with the booking. The other hotels except for Hotel Senani at Kandy were comfortable and met up with our expectations.
The tour guide, Mr.Chaminda was helpful and did his best in making our trip enjoyable.
We would like to thank you once again for the great trip, the good rates especially for the hotels and the choice of sight-seeing locations. Thanks for all the efforts !
March 04, 2011
Thank you so much for once again arranging a great trip for us. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.
And some of my observations ...
Hanoi - Hotel Anise – OK. Ambience and food of restaurants that we were taken to - great.
Halong Bay - Had a boat to ourselves and Halong Bay is an absolute must for anyone going to Vietnam. Hoi An - Ancient House - Delightful hotel. Strongly recommend.
Hue - Villa Hue - Sweet hotel, not as nice as Ancient House but better than Hanoi.
Saigon - The Kingston - OK.
Restaurants and food not as good as Hanoi with the exception of one reastaurant
Phnom Penh - Hotel Pavillion - Again delightful. Strongly recommend. Phnom Penh requires a full day. Killing Fields was not on our itinery and should have been. However we got to see it as we asked for it instead of the Russian Market.
Siem Reap - Angkor Village Hotel - Recommend this hotel which we chosen, very strongly.
Luang Prabang - Villa Santi - Not as pretty as Angkor Village but still out of the ordinary and recommend. The boat ride was extremely pretty and relaxing.
People were most friendly in Cambodia and the Cambodian guides spoke the best English. In fact, in general, English was best spoken in Cambodia. The Viantour representatives there kept calling in each place to check how we were and in Siem Reap, someone even came and met us at the hotel.
These are just my observations to help you for the future. We had a great time anyway.

I am writing to express my family's appreciation for a wonderful holiday!
All arrangements were excellent: choice and location of hotels, itinerary,
the safari vehicle, a wonderful, knowledgeable driver/guide called James who
ensured we saw the Big Five close up and often ...
We were comfortable and safe!
All this made the trip memorable-in fact it exceeded my wildest dreams
Thanks to you and the team for a lovely holiday

This is regarding our tour to Hongkong, Macau and Schenzen.
I would like to inform you that we have returned from our tour as per schedule and would like to inform you that the tour was very well planned by you. The pick up from the airport to the hotel and subsequently to our place of visit was well planned and executed. The hotels we were put up at were also very good. I would like to thank you for your services.

We would once again like to thank you and TBI for all the bookings and planning you did for us for our summer vacation. We were very impressed with the way the itinerary was planned as it helped us not to waste any time and we made the most of every day we had in all these beautiful cities. It was a fantastic idea to take overnight train journeys as this was a superb experience and it once again saved a lot of time. The trains were very comfortable and extremely safe. All the Hotels selected were very comfortable and centrally situated. Most of the tours were also very interesting and the best part was that all the pick ups were exactly on time.
A few of the things which we were not that great were (this is only so that you can advice future clients better) :
- the concert in Vienna at the Schonnbrun Palace- Orangerie. This was not that great as it was just a small chamber orchestra and the acoustics were also not good. Instead the opera house was beautiful and any concert there would have been much better.
- Riding School in Vienna. We personally found it extremely boring as all there is are a few horses walking in different ways.
Apart from this the rest was all super!
Thanks a ton once again

Just wanted to thank you for making my travel arrangements to Baltimore at such a short notice, a good one.
Had a good trip and am back.
The seating arrangements on the way back worked out well too.
Imp: Just need a little assistance from you on getting my miles transferred on to my mileage card as the same could not be done at Washington Airport. The agent at the airport, wanted the airline partner code no. which I did not have!!!
I will be contacting you soon for fare rates for a work trip that I need to take in August. Being "back to school" season, I probably will need to do it soon.
many thanks once again.
Hutokshi, a special special thanks to you. Without whom this would never have happened.

What can we say about the dream island - it was once in a lifetime where we got to walk with the Lions, feed the fishes underwater and walking with them as well? And that's not all, we also watched the part of the Island from the sky when we did our parasailing. The entire trip was worth the money including the stay, transfers to various points and meals as well. Sightseeing to the North and South of Mauritius and the IL AUX CERF ISLAND were worth watching. In addition to that there were different places, gardens, volcanic spots, beaches and some wild life which were also worth seeing. Adding to this, everything was organized properly and efficiently by the travel coordinator in Mauritius.

This is to record our deep appreciation for the excellent work done by the TBI team towards artistes travel – ticket booking and departure in particular. We were extremely impressed and delighted with the swift action taken by you and your team when we had a problem on our hands with regards to the departure of a few artistes. Team TBI was simply there for us in our moment of crisis.
We look forward to a mutually rewarding long lasting relationship with Team TBI.

I am sorry it took us so long to get back to you to say that we had a wonderful time all through our holiday. Every leg of the journey was well planned and the places visited lived up to their full promise. We were particularly pleased with the planning for Turkey. Having a full time English speaking guide all for ourselves and all through the trip was very helpful. As was the availability at all times of a car and driver. All hotels were not as comfortable as we would have wanted and perhaps next time we will be more specific. Thank you and please convery our thanks to your whole team.
I shall be writing shortly for you to help us with our next trip...... although that is still far away since it will be next year but no harm planning right?

Dear Meher and Nimisha,
As I mentioned on the phone to Nimisha, our tour has gone very well. Today the last group arrived in Mumbai and all 6 of us are very happy with the tour. I want to thank both of you for taking special care and pains to make the arrangements ( it wasnt a homogenous one-itineraryy group ! )
Barring the hotel in Cairo, all other hotels were good, the sightseeing arrangements were good. The train reservations gave a hiccup to the Switzerland group which my brother-in-law Mr. Dilip Gupte will explain. Other train bookings worked well.
I hope to see you when I am next in South Mumbai and give you a short synopsis of the towns visited.
I will have no hesitation in using your services when I have the next opportunity to travel.
Thank you once again,

These few lines are to place on record my sincere appreciation to you & Shailendra for the same. Do let me know if I can be of any help to you anytime.
Warm Personal Regards,

Dear Meher & Shirin,
I wish to give my million thanks to you both for the fantastic trip you organized for me to South America which is sealed in my memory.
All the countries I visited i.e. Brazil including Amazon, Iguassu Falls from both sides (Brazil & Argentina), Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Galapagos Islands were fabulous and exciting. I could see 2 wonders of the world i.e. Christ the Redeemer in Rio & Machu Picchu in Peru. I can’t get the right words to explain my feelings but seeing is believing.
I have travelled to so many parts of the world through you Meher and South America has definitely left a fabulous impression.
I know you both have worked very hard on my program to make it as smooth as possible & make my trip a dream come true. Once again, thank you for organizing a perfect trip and I wish you & TBi all the very best with a lot of success.

This is to thank you very much for the very detail and perfect itinerary prepared for us to visit few countries in Europe. It was a wonderful experience and we had a “World of Time”. The progamme was professionally organized, which gave us a hassle-free holiday; more so, since this was our first travel abroad and we were quite nervous.
We greatly appreciate your efforts and wish to give our views as follows :
- the cities chosen were well-thought
- the number of days in each city/town was perfect
- excellent rail connections
- hotels selected were neat and comfortable
We are glad to have been introduced to Trail Blazers and hope to have more such well-planned holidays through your organization.
With best wishes and regards,

I extend my sincere appreciation for the way you have handled the group and its requirements during our visit to Thailand from 19th Jun'09 to 24th Jun'09. It was a great experience to have you as our tour escort. We look forward to having you with us on other tours as and when they happen. Wish you all the best.

My family returned on 2nd June 2009 after a most enjoyable vacation in Greece and Turkey.
We are writing to thank you for arranging an excellent tour of both countries. In Greece all the arrangements were meticulous. Your agent was excellent and delivered everything he promised. Santorini was a delight. Crete was lovely too but do advise your clients to spend at least 3 full days there, otherwise it really isn’t worthwhile. The Terra Maris hotel in Crete was just superb.
The Globus tour was good but we have suggested a few changes to them in their questionnaire. The Istanbul hotel, Arena, was in a superb location. All these hotels are old Ottoman homes, refurbished as hotels. As such, the rooms are not standard at all. We had a good room but the room allocated to Shireen and Freyan was very very small, although the amount charged was the same. This is just for your information. The staff was helpful and obliging. Given a choice, all of us would definitely stay in the Sultanahmet area rather than in Taksim.
Please do convey to Shirin that she did an excellent job. All the arrangements were perfect and we look forward to having you organize our next holiday.
With our warm regards,
Friday, May 22, 2009
We returned on 18th night and had a good trip.
Thanks for the arrangements. The hotels surpassed our expectations and were very good.

Looking forward to continuation of this relationship in the future too.
Thanking you once again.

Dear Mr. Khan
It has been a wonderful pleasure to be associated with Trail Blazer. It was a wonderful experience to be in Dubai last year and Singapore & Bangkok this year for my holidays with my family. The holiday was organized beautifully by Trail Blazer and we had a very very comfortable and disciplined trip in our entire holiday. The arrangement made by Trail Blazer was taken care of seeing our comfort and timing. I hope that Trail Blazer will prosper more and give us a chance to be with them for our future holidays to come.
Best wishes to Trail Blazer for their success in the days to come..
We wish to extend our token of appreciation for the excellent and timely coordination on your part. Please include our names in any communication and updates regarding attractive packages henceforth.
We also wish to thank COSMOS for a wonderful time we had in Europe.
Central and Eastern Europe with all it's rich culture and history were presented and packaged in most beautiful style. One of the most memorable moments of our lives.

TBI congratulates Dominique La Pierre
Our congratulations to our friend Dominique La Pierre who received the Padma Vibhushan from India’s President Pratibha Patil last month. “It is a gift from the people of the Sunderbans for my love for them … ” Says Dominique who has been deeply involved with this area, since the last 27 years, providing funds from his book royalties. TBI is proud to look after all the travel arrangements for him and his wife, also Dominique.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your organazation for the excellent way you organized our Greek Islands cruise. Your voluminous e-mails took care of every detail, answered all our questions and took the worry out of our own planning.
The cruise itself was well run and Maharookh and Darious and we had an enjoyable voyage, thanks to your excellant arrangements.'
The only hitch was in my meeting up with the cruise in Istanbul. The address you gave was not recognized by the taxi driver or the local people. I finally stumbled on to the ship after an hour's search.We wish you every success in your well -run enterprise.
Dear Meher and Varsha,
This is to thank you both and everyone else who was involved in the planning and execution of our recent holiday to China. We absolutely loved every minute of it and would especially like to thank our guides Lily, Marshall, Colleen and Angela, who were patient (with our demands for shopping), helpful and informative and very friendly.
So far, Turkey used to be my favourite country, but it has now become China. It is so rich in culture and with so much to see and very skilled and talented people. I especially loved the artefact shopping.
And, contrary to what we had been told, by just about everyone, we just loved Chinese food and very quickly asked for the Indian meals in Shanghai to be changed to Chinese.
We ofcourse had our share of out of the ordinary experiences, like missing luggage in Beijing, and
trying to order food in the dining car of the train when no one understood English - and this man who became very aggressive when we peered to see what he was eating - and ofcourse the quake which we felt in Wuzhen. But these things only made our holiday more memorable.
There is one strong suggestion from us. The Hutong area was so charming that it would have been nice to have had our dinner in one of the little restaurants by the water - would have given a better feel of the place.
And how can I forget the shows which were absoluely amazing especially the Song Dynasty and the Tang Dynasty.
So once again - to all of you responsible for making this such a wonderful holiday - a very big thank you.
We will recommend it to every one.
With warm regards.
We just received your company profile and all the beautiful news from TRAIL BLAZER INDIA.
We send you and Trail Blazer India all our good wishes of success and good omens.You are now the smile of India for all those who want to discover your great country. We are sure Trail Blazer will soon smile to the whole world!
Please keep us posted with all the good news always.
