My family of 3 decided to go with The Travel Planet for a private tour around Tamil Nadu as they answered our enquiries promptly. Mr Venkatesh whom I made arrangements with through e-mail is efficient and meticulous. We had problems with our visa and we couldn't board our morning flight, we had to get on a flight later at night, but Mr Venkatesh was patient with us through the whole ordeal. Communication was really easy. Our Driver, Mr Bhaskar goes above and beyond. He is knowledgeable and cheerful. He had a lot of recommendations and was cool with our impromptu change of plans when we found places that we wanted to visit more than the ones on our proposed itinerary. Prices are also really competitive. I highly recommend the Travel Planet for a smooth sailing holiday! :)

I have used travel agents recommended by well meaning friends in the past when in India and had bad experiences. I found Mr. Venkatesh through Trip Advisor and am grateful to report that his excellent ratings are well deserved. Excellent Communication: We exchanged multiple emails and some phone calls while planning the itinerary and at all times Mr. Venkatesh responded promptly with the information requested or with recommendations requested. He was so prompt that I once asked him If he ever sleeps! Mr. Venkatesh arranged a 19 day trip of South India for us including a week in Lakshadweep. The arrangements were excellent. Cars: The cars were comfortable, air conditioned and driven by good safe drivers who communicated well in English. Hotels: The hotels were in the 3 and 4 star range (I have reviewed them separately on Trip Advisor) Arrangements: The transitions from plane to car to hotels to tour guides were seamless. Whenever there was a minor hiccup or we had a question for Mr. Venkatesh we called him on his mobile. He always answered and acted immediately to our satisfaction. The cost of the tour was reasonable (I had written to all the top rated tour operators on Trip Advisor). Payment was easy via a link he emails you that gets charged to your credit card. Mr. Venkatesh is a consummate professional who was easy to work with and delivered as promised. I will definitely be using his services for future travels within India.

I can't say enough good about this small company. I found them totally trustworthy. Communication was very good, accommodation was made to our interests, changes were made easily, the tour was arranged very well and within our price range. Our driver was so personable, so competent, so knowledgeable, and so genuinely friendly, that I cried when we had to say goodbye. All in all a perfect vacation!

We had an amazing 7 nights and 8 days tour with Raj as our driver for 5 of those nights and days. Most importantly, this company was right there at the airports to pick us up, and had us everywhere we needed to be on time. They did as they promised, and even went above and beyond what we planned. Our drivers and guides asked us if there was anything special we wanted to add, and so we added Qutb Minar in Delhi, as well as a 90 min.boat ride in Kerala the afternoon prior to flying north to Delhi. Also, our driver stopped whenever we wanted to take a picture of the local life and sites. We can’t believe how much we saw in a short amount of time and how much he taught us. We tried to tip our drivers well because they went above and beyond to meet our requests. Most of our guides were very good but a couple we were not fond of. One in Delhi claimed his minimum tip was 1,000 rupees after we gave him 800 which we felt was a good tip. One guide annoyed us because he kept insisting we take pictures of things he pointed out, when we wanted to judge for ourselves what to take pics of. He was a bit strange but...overall, the hotels were very nice. We agreed on 3 star but over 1/2 the hotels were above 3 stars. Poor hotel Good Times in Delhi was....a little dirty. But the service was the best! We had a couple hotels that seemed like 5 star hotels to us like Uday suites and JC Residency. Overall, I like this tour company and I will recommend that my niece and her boyfriend take them when they visit India.

Been a while that I take the services of Mr Venkatesh. A person of confidence and who is reactive to address the demands and concerns. Down to earth and professional, I recommend him without fear. Keep up the good work and thanks once again for all your help
