"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.

"I would particularly like to commend our tour guide, Yogesh who really made our holiday special. No request was too much for him. He had a brilliant knowledge of the history and culture of India, an hilarious sense of humour, endless patience and an insightful grasp of what we, as foreigners might find difficult, different, interesting or puzzling. Our grateful thanks to him.

"The Taj Mahal was fantastic, the people in India were overwhelming, they made me feel very humble.

"Arriving at the desert camp at Manvar, going on the camel ride at sunset and staying in the camp overnight. Also visiting the Bishnoi tribe and realising that they have such an admirable philosophy.

"The first sight of the Taj Mahal was a really magical experience.

"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.

"In the Udawalawe National Park the wild elephants, several females with two babies, came right up to the jeep and continued to feed beside us without moving away. It was lovely seeing the elephants at the orphanage too, but a sight I shall not forget was watching a young one standing at the bottom of the slipway, crossing his front legs back and forth in time to the beat of the music coming from a restaurant nearby. He was dancing for fun!

"Our guide Bhavari added to our enjoyment of the Amber Fort by telling us all about the historical background and explaining his own views. Rattan our guide in Delhi was also excellent. He is 75 and traced the huge changes he has seen in India through his own life story.

"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.
Mrs Meena Sumarria"
"As a couple in our sixties, the trek was an experience of a lifetime. We would like to express our sincere thanks to our fantastic guide Prem - his local knowledge and his enthusiasm simply made the holiday perfect. Thank you very much for an extremely enjoyable holiday.
"The most inspirational moment was when we reached the summit of Sigiriya and viewed the wonderful vista. I would urge anyone who visits Sri Lanka not to miss this. It is truly worthwhile.
