"Our trip to India by 4 wheel drive into the Indian Himalayas was a wonderful experience. The time at Robin's home in Manali, acclimatising for the higher altitudes was a very pleasant starting point. An enjoyable trip with many new experiences and fascinating scenery and very happy memories. Robin's staff were very helpful at all times."
Brett & Margaret, Point Wells, NZ

"I accompanied my wife on one of Robin's tours last year, from the top to the bottom of India.
Robin’s enthusiasm was infectious, nothing was too much trouble, and it became obvious as we reached the conclusion of the trip, that her passion and sole focus had been to provide a rich and completely satisfying experience for her fellow companions.
The memories of the Himalaya, the desert, the colourful and chaotic cities and village scenes and people, will continue to provide one of the irreplaceable experiences of a lifetime, that can never be replicated."
