"I have longed to visit Gwalior fort and Bundi town since I saw pictures of both in an Insight guide to India over 20 years ago. Gwalior fort is spectacular - rising above the clean and organised town of Gwalior- it is breathtakingly majestic yet delicately beautiful with its stunning yellow, blue and iridescent turquoise tile work stretching into the distance along the perimeter wall. The interior was a surprise - incredibly well preserved in parts with exquisite carvings and evidence of sophisticated cooling and sound systems. Exceeded expectations! To finally see the romantically beautiful town of Bundi was a dream come true - a secret treasure trove of golden walls housing stunning artwork amidst crumbling ruins, Sadly neglected and in desperate need of Unesco intervention to save one of the most exquisite palace complexes in Rajasthan.

"Words could not describe the elation and incredible time we spent in India and Bhutan. No one could ever cap that. Thank you so much for all your efforts.
"I had a wonderful trip to India. It surpassed all expectations. From start to finish it was a flawless execution. The organisation was superb at all levels.
"I am writing to commend Cox & Kings for organizing such a successful tour of Sri Lanka. It provided a perfect introduction to a lovely land and insight into a culture very different to our own. Our guide, was an inspiration to us all, with his wide-ranging knowledge of country, history, culture, and specialist knowledge of many subjects. I am grateful to have enjoyed such a wonderful travelling experience and hope that it will not be long before I have the opportunity to travel again with Cox & Kings.

"Our Private Journey trip to Nepal was absolutely wonderful. As a couple in our sixties, the trek was an experience of a lifetime. Although we did not reach great heights, we saw village life en route and enjoyed simply tremendous scenic views. Thank you very much for an extremely enjoyable holiday."
"[The most inspirational moment was] when we finally arrived at the childhood home of my mother at Katerri Falls, south of Ooty in the beautiful Nilgri Hills tea plantation country. We now understand why she missed Southern India so much when she returned to England in the 1930s.

"Going to Varanasi which is a unique experience - an amazing combination of devout faith coupled with the madness that is India.

"The ordinary people of India were an inspiration in themselves with their poise, dignity and friendliness in difficult living conditions.

"We are just returned from a magical trip to Sri Lanka. The whole trip was beautifully organised from end to end and the quality of the hotels was astounding. Cox & Kings have really excelled in this holiday and the Sri Lankan hotels were of the best. We greatly enjoyed the train trip out of Kandy – even more so when, in exchange for a small gift, we were both invited in to the drivers cab for the most spectacular section of the journey. Thank you again for a memorable trip, faultless from end to end.
George and Sue Langton"
"The holiday was superb. Everything was perfect: nobody could have wished for a better honeymoon. Our driver was excellent and it felt very luxurious being driven around. He was very courteous and looked after us so well - far above and beyond the call of duty.
Mr John and Trudy Cornes
"The Taj Mahal was fantastic, the people in India were overwhelming, they made me feel very humble.
Mr David Bonham"
"The evening visit to the Golden Temple in Amristar. It was our first night in India and the combination of beauty, religious solemnity and being very far from home was overwhelming. We knew our holiday was going to be a good one!
Mr Shaun O'Connell"
"[Inspirational moments include the] dawn boat ride at Varanasi, walking out to see the Taj Mahal early morning and the lakes at Udaipur.
