"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.

"It was our first time in India and we expected it to be thrilling, and it was. The sites were magnificent; even more amazing than we had anticipated, and we had a terrific guide throughout.

"Being on the Lotus Houseboat and the Neelshawr Hermitage after, they are amazing places. Pure luxury, nothing had been overlooked and the place was like being in paradise.

"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.

"[Inspirational moments include the] dawn boat ride at Varanasi, walking out to see the Taj Mahal early morning and the lakes at Udaipur.

"I am writing to say how much we enjoyed our trip to India...You were right in saying that we had a busy itinerary but we really enjoyed the whole experience. We appreciated your efforts in planning our journey and were particularly pleased with the choice of rooms and hotels you had arranged for us to stay in.
"There were almost too many to mention; Holi festival was amazing, sights in Rajastan were just as I imagined them to be. I appreciated the visits to Bishnoi villages, a good opportunity to see rural life. I also appreciated the excellent room at the Taj Palace in Mumbai. As a single traveller I often find that the rooms I am given are inferior, despite the supplement charged; this was not the case on this holiday.

"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.
"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.

"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."
"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.
