Awful

Reviewed on: 16 May 2014

In sum,they work with the over 60 crowd & my trip fell short on many, many levels wasting not only money but my time.  Traveling 7-9 hrs by car to sight see for 3 hrs at the destination, in total, & spending 2 nights there!  As explained to me by the local contact, "we provide you with time to relax & enjoy the hotel."  1) if the hotels were nice/clean/decent I wouldn't mind relaxing after a long, hard day of touring, exploring. I did not travel around the world to relax in a hotel.  I don't understand how this company stays in business & has won the awards it claims.  I enjoyed 1/2 the guides.Luckily the driver was great since I spent most of my time with him.  To sum it up, I was highly suspicious of the itinerary pre-departure, and they were confirmed during my travels with unsolicited comments on it by various hotel staff and other locals who reviewed it.  Awful, just awful. Will be contacting AMEX-platinum member, to see what I can do.

Excellent trip planner

Lena planned our family trip to India on the Mumbai Express. When health issues forced my husband and I to cancel our trip, Lena got all the documents together for me to submit to our insurance company. Our son and daughter in law did take the trip and they loved it! Lena even called the tour operator to get them upgraded to our suite. Lena took it upon herself to call the airline and get our non-refundable tickets refunded! To me an excellent travel agent can not only create the perfect trip but will also be there for you when things fall apart.

They were punctual and very professional. We did not appreciate the side trip to the marble processing shop. This not only took away valuable time in our day but also was left feeling we had to purchase something we had no interest in. That left us with a “sour taste “ . No where in our itinerary was this mentioned.

This was the second time we used Greaves. They were very helpful ( Rose, at the Chicago Office ) in helping us obtain our e-visas. We Really liked our driver Das, who stayed with us the whole trip - we would highly recommend him. Two of our guides were just so-so...Our guide in Kochin - was not that interested in going out of his way or showing his " passion " for his hometown. Our guide in Mumbai - was also not great - we thought she made a poor choice selecting a lunch restaurant and seemed to be more worried about herself. However, we had been to Mumbai before so we knew a lot and had free time the next day to do what we wanted. Our guide in the Tea Estates - Matthew was terrific!
