This tour delivered far more than I expected, right from the minute we stepped off of the plane!

Right from the minute we stepped off the plane we were greeted by an exceptional BlueSky representative. Hotel and Cruise were excellent. Daily agendas were well planned. The staff on the cruise went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and our needs met.

I just wanted to tell you how fabulous our trip to India was and thanks again for your help!

We really enjoyed having our own little car with a driver and guide for the week. It was a wonderful glimpse of this part of India, our recollections of the elephants, the cows, the camels, the traffic and the forts and antiquities will remain near the top of our experiences.

Thank you for organizing everything for us and accommodating our needs. You guys don't disappoint!

We had an amazing time! The hotel was very nice and modern. The next morning we drove to Amboseli. Our driver was friendly and knowledgeable when it came to animals. We got to see lots of animals such as a huge herd of elephants, lions (lots of them), giraffes, hippos, etc.
