"The whole holiday was wonderful from start to finish. Two moments stand out in particular – first was seeing a mother tiger and her three cubs in the wild while on safari, second was a visit to the Taj Mahal.
Mr Robert McIlwaine"
"Diana Driscoll educated us last year on Mughal Uzbekistan. Because of her we booked onto this Mughal India tour to continue our education. She is inspirational and enthuses us with her love of the subject. Everything about the tour was inspirational. If we have to choose just one thing.....it would be The residency at Lucknow. Also, the India based Tour Manager Madhav Das Rathmore was quite superb and liaised well with Diana, especially since this was the first time the tour had run and the first time they had worked together.
Mr Robert Mundell"
"The first inspirational moment was the sunrise on one side and Kachenjunga mountain on the other at the Tiger's Hill in Darjeeling. The second was at Paro in Bhutan, when we climbed to see the Tiger's Nest Monastery, though we only made up to the first view point.

"Myself and my wife Sue would like to thank Cox & Kings for a wonderful and extremely well managed holiday in India. My wife was, to say the least, a little apprehensive at travelling within India but the entire experience proved to be absolutely magical and without any drama, due to the organisation and efforts of your staff along the way. We now consider India to be the best destination we have ever travelled to in a lifetime of exotic holidays!
Mr Nicholas Sills"
"[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.
Mrs Charmian Bourne"
"The visit to the Temple of the Tooth in Kandi made a deep impression on me. It was intensely crowded with devout Buddhists and I was in the middle of the crush when the doors of the casket opened, yet felt perfectly safe. I have a high regard for the gentle Sri Lankan people. I find tea plantations exceptionally beautiful, and am thrilled with the rich colours and patterns of the small fruit and spice stalls.
Ms Phyllis Babb"
"Yogesh, our tour guide really made this holiday for us. He was an excellent guide and he's a huge asset to Cox and Kings. He was very informative about life in India and was extremely knowledgeable. The most inspirational moment of the holiday was visiting the Taj Mahal. Somewhere I've been wanting to visit for years and it was even more magical than I'd expected.
Ms Julie Cuming"
"We have just returned from our trip to India and wanted to say a big thank you to you for all your help. You were terrific.
"Going to Varanasi which is a unique experience - an amazing combination of devout faith coupled with the madness that is India.
Mrs Anneke Berrill"
"Having tea with a Maharjah. Lucky to travel at Holi time and enjoy the festivities.
Mrs Lynda James"
"Everything always works! If you want a holiday tailor-made especially to your requirements, then Cox & Kings has it. No substitute for discussing possibilities and what you might want with a consultant who has been there are also is aware of your requirements. In the end you get what you paid for.
Mrs Esther Ford"
"There were so many [inspirational moments]: the houseboat in Alleppey, the first sight of Kochi harbour at dusk, the Chola temples. An all-round excellent mix.
Dr Andrew Macfarlane"
"The first sight of the Taj Mahal was a really magical experience.
Mrs Sally-Ann Hart"
"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.
