Thank you Sanjay and Shanti for making our trip to India the most incredible, fantastic and stimulating experience ever.  Amber tours made us feel like family.  We were always in the hand of competent guides and drivers. We only had 18 days to experience the beauty culture and the sights but you were able to highlight that for us.  Sanjay and his representative were always there to make sure everything was going smoothly.  Our drivers were the best!  Our guides knew so much about their cities.  We always felt safe and so happy.

You made me feel like a VIP

What a secure feeling I had each time I was greeted by an Amber Tours representative. I was quickly recognized, greeted and whisked away to my hotel in a professional manner and in a nice car. Hotel check ins and baggage were addressed right away as well as instructions to me for the next day or two. When peripheral problems arose, I was contacted right away with all the mitigating changes. Again, it was nice to know I had the freedom to experience India with Amber Tours shepherding me along the way. I especially appreciated the flexibility of staff in changing guides and/or agendas for me. The most stellar aspect of this trip were the unique settings offered to me. So personalized and special. As I said above, you made me feel like a VIP.

We are very fortunate to travel often and extensively. Our experience with Amber Tours has now "set the bar" above and beyond. The Reps., guides and drivers were knowledgeable, professional and accommodating. When we wanted to see something that wasn't originally scheduled - no problem. When we were tired and only had enough energy for half of what was planned - they gave us several options and suggestions to allow us to rest and recuperatte while still seeing the highlights. Anyone planning a trip to India should start and stop with Amber Tours - I promise, you will not be disappointed.

Amber Tours made our recent trip to India so enjoyable. The guides, drivers and the hotels we stayed at were sublime and all added to the overall experience. No detail was missed along the way and it made for a very enjoyable holiday.

Life-changing travel with Amber Tours

Amber Tours gave us an outstanding experience in India. Shanti Kohli and Inder Dugal treat their guests like family. (We were happy to celebrate Holi at their home!) We stayed at magnificent Oberoi resorts along the way, and at each stop we were greeted by an Amber Tours rep and introduced to an expert local guide. We had an ambitious "Golden Triangle" itinerary, yet were able to see it all thanks to our extraordinary Amber Tours escort, Anuj Dhawan. Anuj, with nerves of steel and a phone to his ear, guided us through each stop on the itinerary. While keeping watch on our group, he paid special attention to individual requests as well. Highly recommend Amber Tours for a gracious and luxurious visit to India.

They planned a great trip for us. We got very hot and tired in some places and had to cut the day short. That's our problem trying to pack to much in.

India and Bhutan

Amber tours were exceptional and the owner was too. She did everything and more for us along with her colleague in Bhutan. The entire experience was great. Guides and drivers were terrific, accommodations were great as well as all of her recommendations. Amber tours was fantastic. The owner had us at her country club for lunch and we met her and her husband who is also in the business with her. Her colleague in Bhutan went out of her way to meet with us and entertain us too. The guide in Bhutan spent a week with us and was beyond what anyone could expect from a guide. He was charming, patient and extremely knowledgeable. We would love to invite him to the USA to be our guest!

Amber Tours - India March 2020

Reviewed on: 30 Mar 2020

Amber Tours fulfilled every one of my requests. I had a private tour of 3 Delhi museums with Ruchika Soi, a noted art historian. In Old Delhi I visited a preschool. In Dharamshala I stayed at Serkong House, part of the Norbulingka Institute, and became immersed in Tibetan Buddhist history. In Amritsar I saw the Sikh Golden Temple and toured the enormous kitchen that feeds 1000s every day. I also got to see the boistrous flag lowering ceremony at the Indo-Pak border. From Aurangabad I visited the mind-blowing Ajanta and Ellora caves. In Mumbai I actually got to see more than what was on the special Amber Tours itinerary. For me, learning about the amazing "Dabbawalas" lunch delivery system was tops. AND I did a Bollywood studio tour! At every stop I had superb local guides (Mahesh, Ajitabh, Aleem, Neeta, Chandana.) And Anuj Dhawan, our guide for last year's group tour, was able to accompany me this time, smoothing the way and tutoring me on local customs.
