"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.

"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!

"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 Botanical gardens in Kandy and the Yala National Park were both outstanding.
Mrs Linda Green"
"Just about everything regarding the trip was absolutely wonderful.

"The first sight of the Taj Mahal was a really magical experience.
Mrs Sally-Ann Hart"
"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
"It was all incredible and the organisation was excellent. The knowledge of the guides made the holiday inspirational for we were taken back in time and had a glorious picture painted of the Moghul era and Rajput era. The guide for the taj mahal was inspired and we were caught up in the romance and historical truths. In Jaipur the Amber fort was described superbly as well as Fatehpur Sikri. The excellence of the Delhi guide has stayed with us into our long term memory. This is a standard of high scholarship and deeply engaging presentation.
Mrs Kiron Wilcox"
"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"
"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 ordinary people of India were an inspiration in themselves with their poise, dignity and friendliness in difficult living conditions.
Mr Robin Ross"
"[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"
"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.
Ms Lesley Wheeler"
"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.
