Customer Comments


I wanted to thank you for such a wonderful well organised trip. Both Julie and I agree that it was the best holiday we have ever had and has spoilt us for future holidays. It was packed with adventure, danger, scenery, quality hotels and exclusivity. Once again thank you for a great time.
Stephen and Julie Howe

The trip to India was unbelievable. I would like to thank you and all your team that made the trip so special. I am boring my friends and colleagues with all my stories. The trip had everything with so many highlights and special moments. India was truly magical and we thank you for helping us see it all. We are receiving E Mails daily from our Indian friends that we met on our journey. Like you we have fallen in love with the country and the people. Keep in touch and we look forward to the reunion. We are already saving for the next trip – hope we are invited.

Thank you so much for the Indian experience - we had so much fun. I have to say, I was fairly anxious about the whole idea, not knowing you, India or having any experience of classic rallies before. Happily, none of my anxieties were realised and the whole thing exceeded any expectations I had. I am a lousy passenger and do admit I was glad when the end of the potholes were in sight but I enjoyed it much more than I’d expected. Even the navigating was fun - normally something I dread. The Ambys were ideal for the conditions and even though ours got gradually noisier and noisier, it never let us down. The hotels were all interesting and the food was a really pleasant surprise. The locals were great and the scenery, especially in the hills, lovely. Again, many thanks to you all and we look forward to the next one!
Natalie and David Crosland

Thank you so much. We had an absolutely fabulous time and have returned on a real high. The combination of the rally experience, the opportunity to see India and the mix of people worked brilliantly. The amount of careful planning, the attention to detail and the surprises you organised made it a truly unique experience.
Claire and Graham Buckland

Thank you for organising such a wonderful trip. You promised me it would be good and you certainly lived up to your word. I had a ball and the memories will be with me forever.
Helen Shephard

Maureen and I have had an absolutely brilliant time. We have come back with both memories and experiences which we will treasure for all time.Thank you very much for your organising of such a superb event which allowed us to have the opportunity of meeting such a diverse and entertaining bunch of people and in such a wonderful country and doing something completely different. Cheers Steve - and thanks again.

Before going I was really looking forward to India, however my expectations were far exceeded. Amazing & fascinating appear ingrained on my texts back home. Now I am just having difficulty in trying to explain the experiences although the photos will help. You were right about the tea plantations being especially inspiring although the lasting memory for me was the Indian people themselves – friendly, beautiful and unaffected. The Ambi rally is a great way to get out from the mass of a travelling group and close in to the people on a one-to-one basis. It was particularly this degree of independence that I valued. I can’t think of a better way to spend a week’s break. Thanks for your hard work, particularly the attention to the detail which was evident throughout. Good luck with future trips.
Desmond Judge

The trip was well organised with a comprehensive range of experiences. The support and back up made me feel safe.
Steve Clarkson

The trip was far better than I could have ever imagined. Thanks very much for making this an event I will never forget.
Phil James

This trip is without doubt the best I have ever done. India was way beyond my expectations, the people, the welcome and most of all the ever smiling faces. So many memories. Well done and thanks. Richard Dalton

Thorougly enjoyed every minute.
Jim Smith

The most impressive part was the attention to detail. Large tour companies would not have come close to the professionalism of this trip.
Kim Hutchings

I have never been to such an amazing place nor had so much fun. The attention to detail from all the team meant the trip surpassed all my expectations.
Kate Brocklehurst

I will remember this trip for the rest of my life. Thanks for making it so memorable.
Roger Mahoney

What great organisation and a highly competent team. The scenery and driving were superb and I thought a high level of safety was maintained throughout.
Alastair Ames

Where else could you have such a holiday. The back up was excellent and the organisation, first class. The food was lovely and the people friendly and welcoming. The whole event was just fantastic.
Clive Winterton

The trip was totally interesting from start to finish. The instructions and briefings were excellent. The whole trip was a credit to you and your team. The Ambys were ideal, strong, rugged and roomy. We have participated in numerous classic rallies and this was definitely the most interesting and enjoyable. Well done.
Mike and Veronica Doughty

As you know it was our first experience of India, and we couldn’t believe the beauty of the scenery or the friendliness of the people, young and old. Many thanks for sharing your in-depth knowledge of the country with us to give us such a wonderful time and to see such amazing places.
Chris and Jill Leach

Just a note to say thanks for your organisation of such a fantastic trip. I can honestly say it was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. You and the team must have worked incredibly hard as it all seemed to go so smoothly. It’s given me a great sense of personal achievement as before I went I didn’t think I would have the confidence to do much of the driving. In the event I drove most days. Thanks.
Sarah Cooper

To put it simply we loved it. A wonderful event, lively company, a beautiful country and great driving. It really was the most brilliant 10 days.
James(OBE) and Elizabeth Taylor
