No one could have done it better than you Vishal. Far exceeded our expectations. Enjoyed all our little surprises. Couldn’t believe how many hidden stopovers you found for our daily lunches/teas etc. You cared for us all beautifully and safely. We wish you a splendid future as Kiwi n Tiger coordinated & think anyone who chooses you or your tour will be equally delighted.

i booked last year with Kiwi n Tiger last year,I was looking forward going somewhere I had never been before.
Wow what an experience it was amazing to the colours and sights I had an absolute fantastic time from seeing all the diverse parts to Old Delhi where we had a very knowledgeable guide, then to Agra ,Jaipur,Jodhpur, Narlai and Udaipur
In all the places we went to we had Vishal as our tour Guide and he used the expertise of local guides
It was the most fun I have had in a long time,everything was carefully organized the care that Vishel and the boys that looked after the driving and our comfort gave was exceptional i would highly recommend Kiwi N Tiger

December 5, 2018

I went to Rajasthan with an open mind and trusted Vishal to organised everything. Well he went far beyond what I had expected with exposing us to Delhi first with an excellent local guide, a home visit then through to the villages. All accommodation was out of this world with each hotel completely different. I now even eat Indian lol. The tour bus driven was luxurious and nothing was too much trouble. We saw a leopard on Safari. The activities Camel ride, elephant ride, tuk tuk rides, visit to temples and Taj just outstanding. Kiwi n Tiger you excelled Thank You.
