Guest Testimonials

One of the most important goals we have at Magical Journeys Beyond is the satisfaction of our guests. Embarking on a tour halfway around the world with a company you have never traveled with can indeed be a leap of faith. I often spend months working with our guests to plan their tour such that it plays out just as they wish. One of the things I enjoy most is hearing back from our guests, either while on their tour or once they get back, explaining how well things went for them. Below is a sampling of those comments.










I want to start by thanking you for the excellent job that you did in organizing our tour. I would not hesitate to recommend your company to friends traveling to India.

The drivers were great and the greeters in each city were fantastic. My favorite was the houseboat tour; it was epic!

Augusto, Los Angeles, CA

I’ve never had a travel agent be as thorough and helpful as you’ve been and it is really appreciated. (tour #1)

All in all, I think you did a great job in working out a great itinerary and...having us well taken care of at every place. (tour #2)
Janet and Donavon, Redwood City, CA


Dilip was the best driver ever. He was willing to help beyond the job description as a guide and as a friend.

The staff on the houseboat in Alleppey was exceptional. It was the most amazing trip in my entire life

Lynn, Berkeley, CA

I’ve had an awesome time. Absolutely terrific time. Driver, Nishu, was superb and guides great too. It was a month of fun; a magical time.     I have India fever now and want to go back. Your company was fabulous; very professional.

Scott, Salt lake City, UT


Sam was a great guide and very knowledgeable.

George and Joanne, San Francisco, CA

All four drivers were excellent drivers in the chaos that is Indian traffic.  Mahendra – cannot say enough good things.  Mahendra felt like our traveling companion and friend.  He learned what we liked and then would stop or suggest things that fit. We were initially skeptical about a day in a small village.  We were wrong.  It was one of the best and most memorable days of the trip. We were so grateful for their welcoming hospitality and could not thank them enough.
Ed and Mary, San Jose, CA

I had a marvelous driver, Joshi, who spoke good English and who was unfailingly responsible, calm and competent. Also, we shared information about your families and about India and America which added to my experience.
Michael, Richmond, CA

Thanks for the excellent service.  Everything worked very well.
Christine and Susan, New York, NY


The guides were all amazing.

Jason and Isaura, Los Angeles, CA

Our driver Hukam, with his effervescent personality and winning demeanor is nothing less than absolutely charming. His hearty laugh and unending positivity are giant-sized.
Barrett and AC, Walnut Creek, CA

Sue and I are having a wonderful time. All your hard work is working out beautifully. (tour #1)

Our driver Kailash was a joy and took excellent and consistent care to make everything perfect for us. (tour #2)
Sue and Danan, San Francisco, CA

Let me start by saying that we had a fantastic trip, thanks largely to all the thoughtful guidance, planning and suggestions you made.  We felt safe and cared for our entire time in India. It was the trip of a lifetime! The drivers were all competent and safe, but Mahendra was exceptional. His English was excellent, and we enjoyed spending time with him on the road during our several very long journeys. He was not just an excellent driver…he was flexible, thoughtful, and caring about our happiness and safety.
Joan and David, Springfield, VA


Thank you for everything.

Marilyn and Beverly, Los Angeles, CA and New York City, NY

Our driver and guides are excellent. Everything couldn’t be better.
Paul and Laureen, Woodside, CA

Our driver in Udaipur, also deserves special notice.  He was very relaxed and went out of his way to ensure we had a good time. Again, we were very happy with Manoj.  He was not only a great help, but a delightful person to have along and quite flexible.
Gill and Tony, Hartford, CT

Our trip was wonderful; the guides were quite informative and lodging was nice. Yen and I had a wonderful and memorable trip.
Yen and Glen, San Leandro, CA

Driver and guide here – excellent. All goes well.
Joan, Wilmington, DE

We are very grateful for the care and attention in making arrangements and for your responsiveness to our particular interests and requests.  We thank you, especially, for understanding what we wanted, making some suggestions when our ignorance of India would have led us distressingly astray, and helping to arrange a trip to suit our special interests. Rawat was so attentive!  He called us several times just to check if all was okay.  We knew he was available, so we felt safe, cared for, and never without support.
John and Helen, Oakland, CA

Thanks again. We had a great time. I didn’t experience any stress at all regarding getting places due to the competence and expertise of you, Manoj and our drivers. The whole team put together a smooth and fascinating adventure for us. Thank you!
Marci, Lind, Ilana and Sabra, Los Angeles, CA
