Dear Mr Ali,
Greetings from Berlin!
A huge thank you for all the services rendered on our holiday „Golden Triangle Tour“ in North India during December 2015. All the excursions during the trip were well organised and we enjoyed every minute of the tour. We had a hassle-free and memorable trip.
We had a car with excellent driver and guide, all of whom exhibited the highest professionalism, safety and knowledge. Mr. Anil Surana our guide was brilliant and flexible if we had something in particular we wanted to stay longer for. He was helpful and also willing to show us additional and alternative points of interest.
Our driver Mr. Tarsem Rana was a very patient driver and skillful in the roads, animals, buses, people etc. that you encounter on Indian roads.
The hotels chosen were all of a good quality but we have to single out Shahpura House in Jaipur as the best hotel of our trip.
The entire trip was extremely well executed and organized. We are already looking forward to our next trip which will be through Caper Travel !!!
We will definitely be back and would like to Mr. Anil Surana reserve as guide and Mr. Tarsem Rana as a driver.
With best regards
Country: Sri Lanka
I really do have pleasure in thanking caper travel staffs, for enabling us to have a fabulous golden triangle tour of India in 2015. Everything went so smoothly.
Special thanks to the driver Mr. Prasanth and the Agra guide Akash. Both did a good job. We were worried initially since 2 ladies travelling alone. But driver did a good job, his driving was superb and took care of us.
The guide in Agra, Mr.Akash he is really recommendable person. He is a knowledgeable person. He gave lot of information about taj mahal and Agra fort. Jaipur guide is not that recommendable.
Hotel recommended in Agra and Jaipur also superb. We felt very comfortable. Overall we are satisfied with the service. Keep up the good work and donâ€™t lose the momentum.
Wishing you all the very best.
Jeff Frank and Christina Aitken
Jeff and I would like to thank you so much for organising our holiday. Everything went so smoothly and we would like to thank all the staff at Caper travel who met us at airports and Mani who was our driver.
We very much enjoyed Cochin and would have liked to have spent another day exploring the city.
Our stay at Windermere was excellent and Dr Simon John was most helpful when Jeff was unwell.
We also had a wonderful time staying at Lake Palace in Periyar - a great place to view the wildlife.
Kovolam was also a wonderful place to stay and we would have like to have stayed another day to explore the surrounding area. I enjoyed a Yoga session with a local yoga teacher and would have loved to have time for another lesson. The sea , although a bit rough was great fun to swim in. The staff seemed unsure of themselves at times but tried very hard.
The tree house was as described but the staff at the resort were disinterested and the food was not very good.
The transfer to the Maldives went well and once settled on Sun Island we made the most of our stay. We found it very expensive for any food or drink or activities but were happy to make the most of the snorkelling and windsurfing. Having the bikes to get around with was helpful.
I hope these comments are helpful and once again we would like to thank all concerned for an excellent holiday.
Very best wishes.
William J. Robertson & Audrey L. Walker
Thank you for planning such an interesting holiday for us.
We found all the Hotels (ITC Sheratons / Radissons to a standard which was very, very good - also the food was to a high standard.
The guides were all very knowledgeable on Indian history, religion, local history and guided us round the important temples.
I liked the choice we made to upgrade to a Innova car in all our journeys in India and Nepal. We were very comfortable, with good views from the back seats to front and sides and of course air conditioning. Also, plenty of room to get our cases in the back.
All the drivers were careful in cities, towns and open roads and we felt safe (but we were not used to the practise of the use of the horn in India / Nepal!!!).
Although we did not see a Tiger at Bandhavgargh we did see 7No Wild Dogs (according to the guide was rarer than seeing a Tiger). Hotel King’s Lodge was a very good choice in our itinerary and maybe, I’ll come back to get a photo of a tiger at a later date / year.
The journey to Umaria from Delhi, 20hrs on a sleeper was pretty awful to say the least. I sat up through the night with the cases in front of me watching each station go by, but it was an Indian experience - not to be done again!!!
I know the reason for the change of itinerary “DEWALI” but the original planned route to Juipur and Agra would have been better for us with less travelling.
We enjoyed the “DEWALI” experience very much - seeing the houses freshly painted, new cars, tractors, mopeds etc and the many fireworks and all the lighting effects on the buildings.
The down side to India is the amount of litter / rubbish beside roads and railway tracks - we did try a walk in Delhi on an street but felt really unsafe. Being foreigners, makes us stand out in the crowd and attract attention.
The places and events which stand out most from our itinerary: Taj Mahal; Lotus Temple, Delhi; Bandhavgargh Tiger Reserve; Death ceremonies, Ganges and more so at Kathmandu; The Himalayas at Pokhara and all the Temples we visited.
Our guides took us to many workshops in the places we visited - bought cashmere scarfs and gifts to take home.
Tipping was a difficult subject for us - how much to give? The turnover of guides, drivers, porters was a lot in our itinerary and it did present us with a problem of having sufficient local currency. I think if I counted up the amount we gave away - it was a considerable sum of money.
The driver in Nepal was exceptional to say the least and he got well rewarded for his effort to us.
Yes, a very, very interesting holiday in India and Nepal.

Caper Travel - an excellent choice for a custom trip through India
I took a group of 14 people to India in February 2014. In early 2013, we had booked a 15 day package tour of the “Golden Triangle” of Northern India: Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Khajuraho and Varanasi, as well as Kathmandu, Nepal.Â Â After making those plans, twelve of us decided that we wanted to extend our travels, focusing on Rajasthan.Â I got busy in March 2013 researching the possibilities.Â After a thorough search, I decided it would be best to work with a company based in India to design a custom trip. I selected Caper Travel because it has a good reputation, has received many awards from the Ministry of Tourism of India and is part of the major international travel associations. My research paid off - Caper Travel was an excellent choice.
I worked with Alok Chatterjee, Sr. Sales Manager. We communicated by email, working together from start to finish. I started planning and designing this tour in March 2013 and for many months we corresponded constantly until we settled on a plan. Of course, I had lots of questions and he always had excellent answers and great suggestions.
Our nine-day trip began with a flight from Delhi to Udaipur. In Udaipur we met Santosh, our guide throughout the tour. He was very professional, knowledgeable, interesting and caring; he made our trip truly unforgettable.Â We felt that we were in good hands with a guide who knew the history, the culture and the people of the region.
The accommodations were first class and each had an interesting history: in Udaipur, the Fatehgarh Palace; in Jodhpur, the Ajit Bhawan; in Pushkar, the Pushkar Palace; in Ranthambhore (the national tiger preserve) Nahargarh Fort; and in Jaipur, the Raj Palace.
I also was very pleased with the 16 passenger air-conditioned bus. It was clean and comfortable. Some of the drives were long and rigorous but the scenery was entertaining and unique. The roads for the most part were two lanes, often very narrow, and some areas were unpaved. Our driver was very experienced and we constantly applauded his driving skills. The driver’s assistant was delightful and helpful â€“ a ready smile and a bottle of water.Â And, of course, Santosh found interesting sights along the way, for example stopping along the way in Ranakpur to see the marvelously carved Jain Temples and a detour by jeep to a Bishnoi village.
Other highlights included a boat ride on Lake Pichola, the Jag Mandir, the City Palace and the Sahelion ki Bari gardens in Udaipur; the Mehrangarth Fort in Jodhpur; and the holy sites of Pushkar.Â Perhaps most memorable was the four-passenger jeep safaris arranged for us in the National Park in Ranthambhore to observe the amazing wildlife in this preserve â€“ and some of us were even lucky enough to see a tiger.
The climax of this custom tour occurred in Jaipur, our last stop. We arrived in time for the Holi Festival, the Festival of Color.Â Santosh, our guide had arranged for us to participate in the morning celebration. It was fun and fantastic. It made for a very festive, colorful last day in Indiaâ€¦â€¦.one we will never forget.
I highly recommend Caper Travel.

You promised us a wonderful trip and you sure delivered an excellent trip, that exceeded our expectation. First let me start by Thanking each and every one who took part in our trip preparation and all those who helped us during our trip, starting with Mr. Sohan ( The Driver who stayed with us during Delhi days and drove us from Delhi to Jaipur till Agra), Mr. Sohan showed us the true colors of India through his utmost hospitality, respect,warmth, patient and very professional driving skills...
In addition, all representatives and guides especially ( Sandeep from dehli, Pinpush from Jaipur and Chandra from Agra)
The Hotels in all cities were very good and the hospitality was impressive ( except Agra Hotel: Marina was an old hotel and the water was yellow!!! :)
As much as we enjoyed our stay and tour in India, we were a little bit disappointed with the last stop : Varanasi. May be because we met such wonderful people all the way, or maybe we had higher expectation for the place ( As a Holy city)!!
We are surely going to recommend Caper / High life to all our friends dreaming to visit your beautiful country. Shukria Shukria Shukria ... for the wonderful time and in lighting experience we had in your country. WE sure learned so much and our life will never going to be the same!

Dear Eftkhar Khan,
After our return to Austria we would like to thank you very much for the excellent organization of our trip through India (Rajasthan and South India) from Dec 14th 2013 to January 2nd 2014. We enjoyed it really very much and were perfectly satisfied. We also would like to praise our two drivers – Ras in Rajasthan, and Chandran in South India – separately, as they were at any time a great help and support, always very friendly and safe drivers. We will definitely recommend you, your organization and the two drivers to our families and friends in case they are going to plan a trip to India!

Dear Mr. Khan,
Greetings from Vienna, AUSTRIA! We are back home and we want to THANK YOU and your agency for a wonderful and enjoying trip through India! We had a very good time.
Our tour "Classical North India, Bandhavgarh with Kolkata & Sunderban" was PERFECTLY organized:
- Wherever we arrived, a guide and a driver were already waiting for us!
- All of them were friendly and professional, they took good care of us and fulfilled every wish we had! Maybe the English was in need of improvement in some cases ;)
- Everything fine went also with the flight/train vouchers and the transfers to the airport/train station - no problems at all!
- Also the booked hotels were great, we felt very comfortable!
We are completely satisfied with the tour, we appreciated your beautiful country with all the friendly people – and we will recommend your agency to our friends …
you did a great job! Best regards & warm greetings from Vienna!
Chris and Joanna McLennan
We have returned to Australia after a great first visit to India. Thanks again for your help. We had a very nice time in Ranthambore and Jim Corbett. We were also pleased that we had the chance to meet you! I would be most happy to provide a very positive reference or comment if you can forward me an appropriate website or the email of one of your supervisors.
When you get a chance could you please send me an invoice for the accommodation portion of our package. I believe all that Joanna needs is the dates and amount.
Dear Mr. Vishal
Thankyou very much for all your help, as it says in the program, we think everything was made as you promissed.
We really enjoyed our time in India and when we come back we will definetively ask you to help us again.
As it was our first time in your country we didn't know what to expect in terms of hotels or sites.
We will specify better next time, but for this experience my husband and I think was perfect.
Our first and last tour guides were outstanding, not as much Jaipur's guide.
Thanks to Yogui and Sandeep again.
Country: New York
Your impressions about our representative on arrival/departure transfers:
Very impressed with the representative upon arrival & departure, very polite, helpful. Someone who you felt could be totally trust worthy. He always went beyond his brief in terms of assisting our group taking us into the airport terminal/train station on every occasion.
Car used for Transfers & Sightseeing tours:
Car/people carrier for both Delhi & Goa were always clean/tidy, air conditioned.
Very good drivers who drove safely in the Delhi traffic. Same applies to the Goa driver.
Our Local Services:
Tour guides were very knowledgeable in both Delhi & Goa, passionate about their local history. Both Hi Life Offices were helpful on communication at all times.
Continue to do the things you are doing it works well. You have a good business model where local offices in India have knowledge of local hotel standards, capacities/bookings and therefore able to offer clients luxury holidays at value pricing.
Dear Eftkhar Khan,
we didn’t meet you in India! But all people who guided and escorted our journey in India did a very good Job. Thank you again for the excellent organisation and bookings and everything we explored! I wrote our feedback in a sheet that Sandeep gave us on our way to the airport.
You asked for suggestions: Yes, we would like to tell you an address in Jaipur, where the “Golden Tulip” was an average business hotel. We've had lunch in a small haveli near to the Pink City that pleased us very much. It’s name ist Maharaja Haveli and would be an much more individual place for an Indian overnight than an anonymous high-rise building. The address is: Maharaja Haveli, 543, Bordi Kothi, Gangapole, Jaipur. Perhaps this could be a new nice place in capers’ travel catalogue?
I’m still (and I think will be for a long while…) busy in arranging our thousands of impressions. It was a great journey and we will think and talk about it for a long, long while…
Warm regards, namaste and dhanyavad!

Dear Eftkhar Kahn,
We just want to thank you for the excellent time we had in India. It has been a very well cared for trip and we want to thanks you and your staff for all you and they have been doing to make it a very enjoyable trip. We definitely will consider “Hi Life / Capers” again for a future trip to India. All the Hotels where very good except the “Diamond Hotel” in Varanasi but that has nor spoiled our journey. The fact that the train in Varanasi came 5 hours late and arrived in Agra about 7 hours late was not nice but for sure not your fault. Thanks for letting us have a driver for the rest of the trip (he was very good indeed).

A most enjoyable holiday where we will remember for many year. We Hope to come back one day Thank you Very much for everything.
Keep up the good work. I am very pleased with your services and will future recommend you.
The rajputana Sheraton at Jaipur and the Jaypee Palace were excellent but The Park in Delhi, wasn't in the same level, the public spaces like corridor were dirty.
Excellent experience guided and suggested by an excellent tour conductor. Thanks a lot.
Ms Elizabeth Herhkorn
Keep up the good work of providing excellent services to visitors.

The whole tour was perfectly organized. The only things I suggest is that Gyatri Ceremony in Varanasi should be included in that program because it is usually worth seeing.

Greetings from Singapore!
We want to say a BIG thank you for assisting us in planning a beautiful vacation. Kerala is really 'God's own country'.
The guides provided were professional and very knowledgeable. We had an awesome time with the sight seeing, diving at Bangaram Island, the food, the hill station... It's endless.
Thank you once again and we will certainly choose Caper Travel the next time we visit to India.
Carol Snyder, Pia Hedstrand and Cissi Göthlin
We arrived back home yesterday and just want to thank you and the other Caper travel employees for a truely wonderful trip. Everything worked smoothly. We have never been so well taken care of before. Special praise goes to our Driver Mr. Barani who did a wonderful job getting us to all the cities, showing us the sights, finding places for us to eat, good shopping, and answering all our questions. It all really started with you! We all want to come back to India and will be sure to pass along our recomendation of Caper Travel to anyone who is travelling to India!
Thanks for another good trip with you, to the Golden triangle. We will certainly consider using your services in the future, and recommend you to our friends who come to visit us.
My wife and I just returned from an intensive trip to India. The trip plan was very tight to start with, and the events in Mumbai on the 26th added an extra complexity as we needed to make some real time adjustments.
Nevertheless, the trip was executed as planned and along all the way we had a very warm feeling of 'been taken care of' by the Big Sister, Ms Monika Singh. Monika was available 24h, warm, prompt and efficient. Like a Lighthouse…
In addition, we found your team members, such as Mr Amit from the Mumbai office, and Sandeep, our driver in Delhi, very supportive, cooperative, prompt, and warm.
We would like to thank you for making our visit to India a lifetime experience.
Rosa I. Pérez Parapar & Antonio Poyo-Guerrero Traseira.
Eulalia Serra, from Viajes Terral, Spain, gave me your name.
I was visiting India with Terral Viajes and your company, Caper, from 11 till 19 July and I am writing to thank your company for everything you did for us.
We had a great time and enjoyed the trip immensely and that was thanks to the people from your company who took care of us. the representatives, the guides and the drivers. I would like to mention two of the drivers especially since we spent quite a long time with them: Hanuman (sorry, I don´t remember the surnames) who took us from Delhi to Jaipur and then to Agra, and Hanif, who was with us from Gwalior to Orcha and then to Kharujaho. Both of them were really kind, helpful and the car was spick and span every morning (and it ended up quite dirty some evenings because of the dust on the roads and the rain). Please, thank every body in the agency from us. You have certainly helped to make this trip an unforgettable one.
Dr. Lester Marrison
Namaste! I hope you are well and had as good a weekend as I did!
Thanks again for some great organisation for our trip to Aurangabad this weekend. We had a great time and as always everything was so well organised.
The sum for our next trip should be remitted into your account today for the full amount. I'll send you the receipt once I have it.
Many thanks again.

Thank you very much for organizing us very exciting tours in northern India and Kerala. We are very happy to chose your company, as the service you provided was very professional.
We are greatful for perfect drivers, guides, represenatives who where always helpful, kind and punctual.
We have very exciting memories. When we or our friends decide to visit India once more , be sure we ask you to organize it.
We wish you all the best
Thank you once more
I hope you are well. I am just writing to let you know that we arrived in England on Sunday from our tripe although we were delayed in Delhi for 9 hours due to the fog, anyway we are home now and knee high in snow, so the weather is quiet different here.
I just wanted to email you to say a big thank you for such tremendous work that you did on organising our trip. It was our 25th Wedding anniversary that we had come out to celebrate and it made it so much special that we got an excellent service from Caper, your representative, drivers, Tour guides, and everyone else that was involved. I am very difficult to please but your service was excellent that i recommended you to some americans that we were sent next to us on the flight back, and my solicitor is thinking of doing the trip in the next year or so, so once again I have recommended Caper, and no doubt I will be recommedning you further.
So once again, please pass on our thanks to one and all, and tell them that my first visit to India was made very memorable thanks to them, and that our anniversary was made extra special.
I wish you and your company a successful 2010.
Dear Caper Travel India,
Hello, we are back to China.

Many thanks for your cooperation! Welcome to China!
Dear Caper India,
I am now back in Zambia after completing my vacation in India. We are generally happy with your services. Let me first give the details on the Nepal trip. The services of your tour guide and their understanding of our requirements is good. Regarding Kerala trip. The trip is excellent and I do not have any complaints on the itinerary and the arrangements.
Dear Caper Travel,
I really do have pleasure in thanking you and your staff, for enabling us to have a fabulous tour of India and Nepal. The drivers, guides, reps. who greeted us were superb. We really have no complaints what so ever. I shall be writing a report on Trip Advisor and I hope that you will get a lot more clients from this. India for me was a dream, and I have fulfilled that dream, with your help and guidance. The kindness and courtesy of all staff, whether yours or hotel was exemplary, we were called the four antique Maharanis, which we very much appreciated. I for one hope one day to return to India, as I realize that there is so much more to see. I shall certainly use your company, and will be recommending you to my friends. Thank you everyone at the office.
I would just like to express our thanks to your company for the marvellous trip which you organised for us. Our driver, Mihopal (?) was brilliant - kind, thoughtful and a superb driver. Our guide for Delhi (Lillat) was also particularly excellent.
Thank you for making our trip to India so special.

Thanking you in anticipation.
Hello Caper Travels,
I would like to thank you very much for the time and effort you put into our recent holiday. We all enjoyed it very much. (unfortunately I think I may have missed the more relaxing part.) The team you picked to meet and greet us at the hotels were great, particular Daga Singh in Udaipur where I had to leave the tour. The local guides were very interesting to listen to and very knowledgeable, special thanks to Santosh (Delhi) and Mukesh (Agra). A very special thanks to our excellent driver Sunil (Delhi to Udaipur), who kept us very safe.
Hello to the Team of Caper Travels,
We would like to take this opportunity to Thank Caper travels for the wonderful and most memorable segment of our trip. Your staff was exceptionally wonderful, very professional and courteous and took care of us every step of the way, from receiving as at the airport, checking us into our hotel, giving us a guided tour and even taking us back to the airport. Thank you to our driver Bhisham Das who was also very professional, friendly and very helpful!
We were also very pleased how Caper travels took care of our son's food allergies and how the information was related to the hotels that we stayed at giving us a peace of mind and letting us enjoy every moment!
We will definitely be recommending your Company to all our friends and family that visit India! as you have really been very helpful and accommodating to our needs!
Also BIG THANK YOU to Arijit who initially started this conversation with us and helped us every step of the way to keep us happy!
Thank you kindly!
We have just returned from a 3 week holiday in India. Whilst we were there we booked a 7 day golden triangle tour with yourselves. The booking was made for 5 people under the name of Mr Gurradish Sanghera, commencing 08.02.2010.
I would just like to say what a fantastic holiday we had. We saw a lot more with your very patient and polite and knowledgeable tour guides, travelled in great comfort in the tourist coach and stayed at some wonderful hotels in your country.
Could you please pass on our sincerest thanks and gratitude to all involved from the driver to tour guides to the reps who met us at the hotels in Delhi. Agra and Jaipur in making this a very memorable holiday. Everybody we came across was most curtious.
I will most definitely be using Caper Travel again on further visits to India and very definitely recommend you to friends and family.
Once again, please pass on our thanks to all involved in making it a very memorable holiday.
I am now back in Australia........thanks a lot for all your assistance in making our trip to Kerala an enjoyable one. May i commend the excellent attitude of the driver of our car Mr Rajesh...........do not loose him, he is a very careful driver full of local knowledge and seemed very honest. He is an asset to any organization......do not loose him.........Vijay was also very helpful. In all let me say my friends and me would use your services the next time we come to India. I think that the next time we will do Kashmir and north India. Thank you once again for all your help.
Dear Caper India,
Thank you very much we had a lovely experience travelling with Capers. All went very well and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves We have recommended your services to others

Dear Miss Anju,
We will thank you very much for your excellent work. All was very good organised and we had also a magnificent driver, as person and as driver. India was in many way a surprise for us, we see a country full of contrasts, as a time trip that it is rare today.
I will send you something in the next weeks. I wish you all best, and would be a joy to see you again. Denise think a new stay in India. I think in form of a combination of nature reserve and a week on the beach. And, in case who will ask for helph? Miss Anju at Caper.
I wish you a very pleasent time and many many lucky hosts
