Gave What Was Promised ++

THE INDIAN MUTINY TOUR

The tour gave exactly what was promised, sites and events of the Indian Mutiny, and a view of present-day India. Accommodations were as good as could be expected, as the tour goes to some out-of-the-way places. Food was good, with the exception of a few places that gave us the food they expected...

The tour gave exactly what was promised, sites and events of the Indian Mutiny, and a view of present-day India. Accommodations were as good as could be expected, as the tour goes to some out-of-the-way places. Food was good, with the exception of a few places that gave us the food they expected we would like, rather than authentic Indian food.

The tour was one of the best we have ever been on, I can not criticise the tour in any way. The hotel was perfect as was the tour guide who's knowledge was exceptional. Coach travel was good, taking us all over the island, drivers going beyond what was expected, polite and courteous. Booking the tour was easy, the staff helpful, travel information was clear and concise. Travel information arrived on time. We were met at the check in on arrival at the airport and help readily given if required. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommend the tour and the company.

THE INDIAN MUTINY TOUR

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and we visited many sites that had been well reconnoitred. Major Corrigan's commentary was excellent. The hotel accommodations were good and the meals were generally good, although we often seemed to get very similar Indian food for both lunch and dinner.

Our Holocaust Tour was fantastic! Paul Salmons is, by far, one of the most outstanding guides we have ever encountered. He was superb in every way. You need to keep him. He encouraged us to think from many sides and presented the site visits in extraordinary ways. Fabulous.

However, some of the logistics of the tour were definitely under par. Several of our lunch stops were less than adequate - felt unplanned, as if Cultural Experience hadn't thought about feeding the group. And a couple of the hotels were also not great. You need to check into both so as to improve for the future.

The holiday bore little resemblance to that described by The Cultural Experience. One person doubled as driver and guide and consequently failed to fulfil either roll satisfactorily. As driver he kept getting lost as as guide he was inaudible when driving. The vehicle was an airport taxi rather than a minibus. It was uncomfortably and difficult to get in and out of. We were expecting picnic lunches, these did not materialise and instead we had random and very late ad-hoc stops for food. The hotel at Amiens was a disgrace! Dirty and nowhere near the town centre. The guide was obsessed with mine craters and failed to take us to several of the advertised locations, for example the Passchendaele Museum. Certainly NOT value for money.

Thank you for taking the time to write with your frank comments. I was very surprised and disappointed to read about your experience with us. Clearly, we have some work to do to meet your expectations of this tour and of our company, and I can assure you that, where we feel your comments warrant it, we will act upon them.For the benefit of readers of this review I would urge them to consider the other reviews of this tour, which express their experience in a very different and positive light. Reading such negative feedback is never pleasant, but it does serve to give greater creditability to our overwhelmingly positive Feefo reviews.Alan Rooney, Managing Director
