India is a daunting destination for first-time American visitors like ourselves. We were well looked after by Haroon Baktoo and Indian Tribal Tours, who took most of the cares from our shoulders and made it possible for us to enjoy this astounding country. When we are able to return, we'll sign up with Indian Tribal Tours again--South India next time!

Jeff Stevenson (England)

The trip was well organized, we got to see everything we wanted to. We could probably have had a more tight program, but we felt it was not necessary, it would only have been too much stress. So we were completely satisfied with the program!
