 Tour of Kerala, Sri Lanka and the Maldives
We just returned on February 8th from 28 days in India, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives.  Chris, of No News, No Shoes, listened to what we like in a trip and tailored it to match our dreams.  She has an amazing knowledge of these three areas and spends the time to make the trip perfect for you.

 Constance Moofushi – Maldives
I just wanted to drop you a short note to thank you so much for organising our Holiday to the Maldives. This was our first time to the Maldives and we couldn’t have wished for a more perfect choice of location.  You absolutely nailed it!  Your suggestion of The Constance Moofushi resort was just perfect and exceeded our already high expectations. The relaxing atmosphere, the great food, the charming staff, the brilliant snorkelling, all were perfect.  It would be difficult to imagine how much better another resort could be!  All your travel arrangements went like clockwork, in particular the Sea Plane transfers which were very efficient.

Tour of Bangladesh, India and the Maldives
Dear Chris, I am very happy I found you and your agency through the internet to organise our almost seven week journey along the Indian subcontinent. It is not easy to put together such an epic journey including two weeks in Bangladesh and five weeks in West Bengal, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala…but you did it in a very professional and efficient way! Everything went very smoothly and we enjoyed every moment of it! We stayed at fantastic hotels and resorts and we were always acompanied by very good guides and drivers whenever we were on land transportation. Your local agents were always available and very efficient to assist us whenever we contacted them. This is a very important aspect in a long journey such as this one. Great job you did for a journey which ln summary had seven airplane legs (sleeping two nights in airplanes), with five nights sleeping in boats, one day train ride, about 40 nights in hotels and more than 3000 kms on the road…!
I travel quite a lot in all continents and you are with no doubt the best agency I found so far! Thank you and we will contact you again for our next travels!
Happy travels!

Kerala Tour – India
We have returned from our wonderful holiday to Kerala. Everything went super smooth, we were very impressed with your local agents who took excellent care of us and were great communicators. Everyone has remained well and all have enjoyed the trip tremendously, making lots of new friends. We enjoyed the variety of events and tours and the selection of hotels with their different attributes. Drivers were great, always ready to help, appearing cautious in their overtaking, the guides were all very knowledgeable and provided us with much more insight than we would have had on our own or from the guidebooks. There are many more unmentioned great experiences but I am sure you have got a feel of what a great time we have had! Many thanks once again for the great care you have taken in arranging this wonderful experience for us.

Komandoo – Maldives
Just feeding back that we had a wonderful time in Komandoo, it really was perfect! They upgraded us to a water villa for the first night of our stay as it was my wife’s birthday. It was a very nice and peaceful start to the holiday but I am glad we took your recommendation to stay in a beach villa, it was less isolated and the views were better. The resort was just right for our needs; quiet, great food, excellent service so all in all we were delighted and would definitely go back.  Thanks again for your advice and help and we will definitely book through you again if we decide to go back to the Maldives.

Baros – Maldives
We have absolutely loved it here at Baros. The villa is in a perfect spot;  the service is excellent and the food delicious - some of the best we have had on holiday !   Snorkelling has been great - the highlight seeing a turtle!  You were right – Baros has been just right for us. We will have to save up to go again as it is a lot of money but worth it!

Volunteer Placement – Mumbai, India
I just wanted to extend my warmest thanks to all of you for making my recent trip to India the experience of a life time.  I couldn’t have asked for anything better, from the minute I arrived for my departure at Birmingham International on November 1st to my arrival back on the 24th, I went through every emotion that a human being is capable of.  But the overriding emotion for me was pure joy – THANK YOU!    I really appreciated the ‘check ins’ from you – made me feel very secure. If possible, I would like you to pass on my thanks to the staff in the Hotel Avista – they were very attentive and very considerate, I appreciated their welcome when I returned home each evening. To Vijay my taxi driver on my first weekend, such a gentleman and so knowledgeable about all things Mumbai.  My two guides were helpful above and beyond …. Thank you.    St Catherine’s Home was a life enriching experience – don’t hesitate just do it!  I thought I was going there to do something for them, in reality the children and staff did so much for me.  I have memories that will last a lifetime and that I will bore friends and family with for a long time to come – well – until my next trip at least.From the bottom of my heart – Thank You all x

SwaSwara – Karnataka, India
SwaSwara is a small corner of heaven on earth – total nourishment for the soul, don’t let the four hour drive from the airport put you off, it is so worth it.
