Parvez Khan of Indian Journey is a talented tour organizer and thoughtful human being. Parvez arranged a five-person, 24-day trip that included Delhi, Rajasthan, Agra, Varanasi, and Kerala that was utterly delightful and seamless. Despite his smiling presence and calm demeanor, I knew he worked hard behind the scenes to handle every detail to make sure everything went smoothly.
Parvez’ attention to detail was not limited to trip logistics but included attentiveness to the interests of his travelers. Want to wander in the Delhi spice market and swim in its aromatic energy? Done perfectly. Want to experience a dinner at a private home? Done. Want to learn how to wrap a turban, train a proper Rajasthani mustache, visit the Taj Mahal three times in less than a day (afternoon, evening, and early morning) and from different vantage points? No problem. Want to stay in the magical, and only, riverfront hotel on the Ganges in Varanasi? That can be arranged.
Parvez’ thoughtfulness of his travelers was reflected in his surreptitious advising our hotel in Agra of my birthday. His efforts and those of the hotel were beyond kind and memorable.
Parvez’ skills extended to the local guides he arranged for us. They were uniformly informative, interesting and interested. They showed us not just the sights but shared insights into Indian cultures, food, political economy, people, religions. A long bus ride from Udaipur to Jodhpur was transformed into a marvelous explication of Hindu and Muslim religious tenets and practices, the histories of these great religions, and their interrelationships past and present. Our phenomenal local guide in Agra conducted the tour of the Red Fort in Agra entirely in the present tense, putting us on a journey of discovery and surprises in the shoes of the people actually there at important moments. The local guides for Indian Journey in Jaipur and and Kerala were similarly tremendous.
Parvez and the local guides acting for Indian Journey enthusiastically and sensitively showed and shared with us their love, enthusiasm, and knowledge of and for India and its land, people, sights, history, cultures, religions, foods, and future. Parvez and friends gave us the priceless gift of experiencing and comprehending the wonder that is India.
Two couples and long time friends booked a trip starting in Goa, driving to Hampi, then flying to Madurai. We again had a driver and explored world heritage sites from Kancheepuram to the backwaters of Kerala. Hotels were excellent and importantly so were our driver who were experienced and spoke good English. Our agent was always available by phone and always helpful the few times needed. Trip could not have been better. Recommend without reservation.
From 2014 to 2018 I've done 3 tour in India Rajastan, south India, Varanasi -Amritsar, and I'm going to have the fourth.
I like India and I'm strictly joint with this country.
I went in contact with Parvez and Indian Journey in a wonderful period I was in India to adopt my daughter and since then Parvez-Bahi was for me not only the best travel agent ever known but over all he was a brother an angel who protected me and my family and friends, in India.
We used Indian Journey this month for a Golden Triangle itinerary. Without a doubt, every driver, guide, and representative were top notch and immediately available via text, phone, or Whataspp (preferred).
Not once did we feel out of touch nor left questioning our itinerary. The guides were able to be a bit flexible with personal goals and priorities.
Excellent staff, prompt communication, flexibility, and guides. Just beware of the hard sell at the Cottage Industries mandatory handicraft/carpet shops.
Our third trip with Indian Journey was as memorable as ever. We have previously used Parvez (INDIAN JOURNEY) for touring Rajasthan and then a year later Amritsar, Shimla & Manali. All hotel bookings were good , Pawan our Driver was superb (we had him for 15 days in this last road trip). I have yet to come across a more decent and polite travel organisation in India, where the emphasis is on service and well being of the customer with very good prices.
This trip we did this time was Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaiselmere and finally Udaipur. We stayed 2 nights at each location.
I would have no hesitation to recommend (and I have already sent a number of my friends in the UK Parvez's details) INDIAN JOURNEY for organizing your next holiday.
If you want home away from home than you should get in touch with Indian Journey Mr Parvez Khan. I have used other service providers in India on my previous visits but no one came close to Indian Journey when it comes to your comfort and service. You will be treated as a family member of Indian Journey.
I have visited lots of places and the best thing is that as soon as you reach your Hotel to check in you will receive a call from Indian Journey to ask if the Hotel is to your liking and if not they arrange to transfer you to another Hotel with fulfills your needs and wants. I have visited India more than five times with young family and solo.There is no comparison in service and comfort with Indian Journey. Don't just take my word for it, try it and you will not be disappointed.
Thank you Indian Journey (Mr Parvez Khan) for taking care of me with just one phone call. Hope to see you again on my next visit.
