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.


We have had an amazing time here in India and I can’t thank you enough for all that you did to make that happen. The trip has been fabulous! Everything you planned was exactly what we all loved. The personal care and attention we got was exceptional. We had a fun group and everybody really embraced Rishabh, our driver Ugandan, and the many tour guides.

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

I have been meaning to drop you a note to tell you how incredible our entire experience was in India. Have to say it surpassed my expectations in so many ways. Thanks again for all you did to customize our trip and make it perfect for us. We loved having Rishabh along every step of the way. He worked his magic many times to give us the extra time we wanted and the experiences that we were looking for.  Rishabh would alter and shift the schedule around us so that we never felt hurried, yet got to experience everything that was on our agenda. The only title he would accept was that of friend. What an exceptional young man!
Cathy, Columbus, OH
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

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

Steve was fantastic, from the booking/planning process all the way through to the end of the trip. He helped us come up with a custom itinerary that met our needs for length of stay, main interests, and our budget. Having dedicated guides for just our family really helped make the trip memorable, as we had the opportunity to really get to know them and connect on a human level. We would not hesitate to book another trip through him!

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.

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.

Glen and Yen, 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!
