Our requests were submitted to P&L. They made our trip to India one of the most perfect we have ever taken. Agents of P&L were checking on us every step of the way. Two deserve special recognition: Hemesh Chaturvedi, our guide, and Ramrakesh Yadav, our driver. Hemesh had the magic touch of making everything possible and even flew with us. If you have ever experienced the chaos that is driving in India, you will appreciate the fact that Ram always made us feel safe.

Our recent trip to India was flawless thanks to the wonderful people at Pierce and Leslie! Every local contact person bent over backward to make sure we were taken care of to our satisfaction. Each local guide was lovely, interesting,and knowledgeable in addition to speaking excellent English! Our main driver, Anil, was a marvel. Traffic in Delhi, Agra and Jaipur is insane, but Anil was an expert driver who got us where we wanted to go and made us feel safe at all times. The Pierce and Leslie team is simply the best!
