      Shillong and Guwahati with Keyterns
      I always travel with Keyterns even for family functions as they book clean and neat rooms with very good food. This tour with them was very safe. We felt at home in the new place. Food and room facilities were amazing in the hotels they booked for us. The cab and tour plan was also good. The local coordinator followed up regularly. Aparna was always available to check on us and help. Another memorable trip with keyterns.

      Amazing tour!
      This was definitely the highlight of my time in Chennai. Vijay, our guide, is exceptionally knowledgeable and brought the artefacts in the museum to life with detailed information about the history and related mythology. I would strongly recommend this tour.

      A wonderful days birding
      We had a great days birding with Subbu who is a very knowledgeable and personable birder. Subbu phoned the night before the trip to check if we had binoculars etc and what types of birds we wanted to see so tailored the day to meet our requirements. He brought his spotting scope so we were able to get some great close views of the more distant birds. I also asked if we could go out early before it became too hot and he duly obliged, arranging for a taxi to collect us from the hotel before the temperature hit 30 degrees. I’m a fairly experienced UK birder but this was my first time out and about in Chennai and it didn’t disappoint as we clocked up over 70 species in a few hours including spotted eagle, 3 kingfisher species, 3 bittern species, bee eater, roller, golden oriole, fulvous whistling ducks and spotted owlets. Subbu also has a very keen ear and was constantly identifying calls for us. I would thoroughly recommend a birding trip and will definitely go again when the opportunity presents itself.

      Ticking off one new experience in life- Bird Watching!
      "I must say, this was truly one of the best experiences of my life. I had never been birdwatching before. When they mentioned that we would be accompanied by an expert, we were hopeful for a great experience. It happened to be my wife's birthday, and she thoroughly enjoyed it. Amidst the chaos of the city, they took us to a beautiful spot, guiding us through some exquisite birds. Just by observing them, a sense of calmness washed over our minds. The experience was further elevated when we began to listen to the sounds of those birds. A special thanks to Mr. Subramanian Shankar and the Key Terns for providing us with this amazing experience!"

      The guide Mr. Subramaniam was excellent. He taught me about identifying birds calls. If not for him, I wouldn't have scored 5. The tour was advertised at 6000 INR, however they charged me 10500INR. Promised a SUV but sent me on a Taxi. They were prompt in collecting the money. After that the treatment changes. Mr. Subramaniam was a through gentleman!

      Golden Triangle vacation with family made amazing by Key Terns.
      We had a perfect time with the trip. As a family, we had not visited heritage and archeological places in North India, and this trip was the perfect bonding time that I would cherish for a long long time. Key Terns made meticulous planning for the entire trip. During the initial conversations, they went into great detail about what we wanted to do and gave helpful tips for all other possibilities. They presented us with multiple plans, that allowed my family to analyze and ask for changes. The final plan was very well-balanced and detailed. Key Terns took input from us about the choices of our hotels and food restrictions during the planning phase. The plan was also executed flawlessly. All the people were very responsible and responsive. The execution was smooth. The hotels were great and we are glad that Key Terns put us in the 4-star hotels. Our driver was calm, took us around unhurriedly, and made us feel safe. The car was spacious, and comfortable and held our luggage without problems. Key Terns' earlier warning about excess baggage was timely and appreciated and we were able to set up our bags such that we did not pay excess fees. The resort at Sariska was especially nice since it was hidden behind a village, but it was also very nice and comfortable. The food at the hotels for breakfast was very sumptuous and we made it a practice to have a hearty breakfast and skip lunch to be able to do justice to the sights. The guides who were hired for us were knowledgeable and showed us around well. Overall, we all felt that it was a great trip enjoyed by all. To everyone in Key Terns, thank you! As a family, we had an amazing hassle-free, memorable vacation. Next time I plan to go on a vacation in India I will ask for services offered by Key Terns. To any of my friends planning a vacation to India, I would highly recommend talking to Key Terns.

      Wonderful, great driver, wonderful planning of itinerary.
      This was a well planned tour by car to see and savour sights and food in Bengaluru and Mysuru. Srini and his team at key Terns did an amazing job of planning out our itinerary and filled each day with incredible history, culture and ending each day with recommended restaurants for dining. We cannot thank Key Terns enough for their dedicated service. Our car was super clean and driver was very pleasant with a wealth of information. We split our time between Mysuru and Bengaluru. Shopping in Bengaluru was wonderful.

      Great travel experience through KeyTerns!
      KeyTerns arranged us a vacation for a 6 days trip to Rajasthan covering Jaipur, Pushkar and Udaipur. We contacted KeyTerns about 4 months in advance and gave our travel requirements with respect to budget, sight seeing interests, food / lodging and transportation. KeyTerns did a thorough research through their local contacts and recommended must see & nice to see places in each city and also provided options for hotels & transportation. Once we confirmed on our selections they made all the travel reservations and sent us the detailed itinerary. During the travel KeyTerns assigned us a representative to be available 24X7 for any kind of support and every night they sent us reminders on the next day's schedule. They took care of flight check-ins too. They made sure that we had the best travel experience. They are very professional to work with and customer service was their top priority, it was our pleasure to do business with them. I have recommended KeyTerns to a few of my friends and they all were very happy with the service. I highly recommend KeyTerns to make your pleasure trip truly a pleasure!

      Masinagudi private trip - Luxury and relaxing
      My third trip with keyterns in a row since December 2022. As usual their service is great. I booked very late, but somehow, they managed to get me a luxury resort with very good food. For me keyterns is luxury stay and tasty food. Looking forward to the next travel with keyterns.

      archeological curated Kanchi trip
      What went well: Vijay, our guide, is fantastic. The driver was always ready, the car was clean. What did not go well: there was no cold water readily available in the van or any kind of way to clean hands. Umbrellas were not available. The museum tour was below average and not what I had expected. Seeing how silk is made was also not what I had expected.

      Excellent trip and excellent guide
      An excellent morning bird-watching with Subramanian Sankar. We had booked this trip as we had limited time in Chennai. The guide took us to two lakes and whilst we had binoculars he had brought a scope which proved to be very useful in seeing some of the birds on the opposite side of the lake. We would not have seen as many birds without Subramanian Sankar and we would certainly not have identified all the birds we saw. If we return to Chennai in the future we would certainly book another trip with this guide.
