“Completely Disappointing!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We contacted Adarsh Tours after reading fantastic reviews from TripAdvisor. But it was worst experience of my life.

We were being managed by one guy from this company who apparently had no experience of managing a group. Till the moment we landed in Bagdogra, we were not given any details of the driver and the car. Same thing happened for pretty much every day of our trip, which was annoying since we had to continuously call this guy and ask for the details.

On one of the occasions, we were dropped off at a taxi stand in Sikkim and were asked to take taxi back to our hotel. All this while we were travelling with elderly people in our group.

Most annoying bit was the kind of arguments that we were being given during 6 days of our trips.
For example:
1. We usually cater to foreigners. We do not manage tours for Indians. Only by mistake we took your booking
2. You are seven people with some of them being overweight. Therefore, we have to give you a different car than what we promised.
3. The guy that managed your booking had not told the owner of the company. Hence, there is a lot of mismanagement happening in your tour.

In summary, I would not recommend this company. Please beware, you could be treated badly even if you haven't done any thing wrong.

“What a service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

After many tours in India we decided to tour in Sikkim. After a lot of searching on the internet we found Adarsh Tours in Gantok. The reply was punctual,prices were good and the hints and changes to our requested tour were to the point and useful.On arrival the cars with devoted drivers and our guide Sanjeev were waiting for us early in the morning as arranged.The tour was not without problems because of the bad weather, dead back home of the sister of one our tour members but all was arranged in no time. Two hotels WE choose were not as axpected but again Mr. Gopal found us a decent hotel for the whole group.
We did many tours in India during the last ten years but never we had an organisation like this.
Thank you Mr. Gopal and staff, you made Sikkim unforgatable for us.

“Time of my life ! Goecha La Trek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

I went on the Goecha La Trek with Adarsh Tours and had a blast from start to finish!

Since I came from warmer climate I got shoes and jacket through Adarsh, and they were also accomodating in every other way.

The hotels, crew, and food along the trek was top notch, with a warm cup of chai meeting you at every camp after a hard day's walk,.

I would highly reccommend Adarsh Tours to anyone interested in doing the Goecha La trek - or any other trek they provide - since the service provided was second to none.

Thanks to Gopal and our unforgettable guide, Sanjeev!

In april 2013 I have done the Singalila and the GochaLa trek with Adarsh Tours. I have enjoyed both treks and the organisation of Adarsh Tours was very good. Enthusiastic, helpfull, english speaking, guides, good crew, good food, nice hotels in the city´s, equipment and tent were OK, good transport and most of all, a pleasant athmosphere in the group. Thanks Gopal and Sanjee, i´ll always remember this month.

“Succesful climb Mt. Tinchingkhang”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Hi Gopal,

Even though it has been a while back the memories of this excellent tour remain fresh! Thanks to your excellent organisation and with some help of the weather gods and not the least with the great help of the climbing Sherpas and our outstanding cook Sangay! we managed to be the first Swiss, Swiss woman and Dutch climbers to climb this technical difficult mountain.

The whole organisation was perfect and the contact with you Gopal was always excellent and uncomplicated.

Therefore I would highly recommend Adarsh Tours to everyone who wants to tour in the Himalayas!
