"This Grandparent-Grandchild adventure is not to be missed. It is totally unique. A Himalaya High Adventure - the title sums it up. When do you ever have the opportunity to go where few tourists have been before.

Of critical importance to such a challenge is the organisation. It could not be faulted. Robin has an intricate knowledge of the area and the local customs, she knows numerous local people, she is experienced in planning for and leading groups, she cares for her fellow travellers and is a master at avoiding any pitfalls. I felt completely confident in her ability to keep both my Grandson and I safe throughout the journey. I would love to repeat the experience and therefore highly recommend it to anyone who seeks something totally memorable."

- Janice & Max (aged 12 years), Birkenhead, NZ

"Our trip to India with Robin exceeded all expectations. The destinations Robin selected for us throughout the length of India were diverse and gave us the opportunity to see many aspects of Indian life. Robin was a delightful leader who spoke the language and understood the local customs. We all kept perfect health, laughed constantly and loved every moment.

We greatly appreciated the work Robin put into the organisation before, during and after the trip which gave us the experience of a lifetime. Thank you Robin, you are a gem."
