Bangladesh & India Tour
Dear Chris, I am very happy I found you and your agency through the internet to organise our 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 accompanied 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.
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!

Tour of India and the Maldives
The whole experience was better than we could ever have expected. We couldn't get over the level of service and how well looked after we were for the whole trip which made it so easy to relax.
Without the planning it would have probably taken us twice as long to see what we did. We have already decided that we'll at least be back to the Maldives and no doubt explore more of India. We'll be sure to be back to you for your advice and in the meantime will be recommending you to anyone else interested in those destinations. Thanks again for making our honeymoon perfect and unforgettable

Tour of Kerala, Sri Lanka and the Maldives
We have just returned 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.

Holiday to Filitheyo in the Maldives
We had the most amazing holiday - the island is rustic and relaxing. We pretty much dived and snorkelled every day - did a blue light dive, a currents course and played with scooters you sit on. Great fun ... saw sharks, rays, turtles ... you name it! The holiday was just what we needed and more.

Thank you so much for organising our Ganges Source to Sea trip, we had the most fantastic and interesting time. Everything ran like clockwork so it was very stress-free.
Great, friendly and personable service with fast response time was much appreciated.
It was fantastic. Thank you to everyone who was part of making it really special.
Appreciate all your hard work and hopefully we'll be back in the future to book another trip!
Max & Lindsey, West Yorkshire, Dec 2018
Thanks so much for another really lovely trip. We very much enjoyed our time in Indonesia, and we appreciate all the work you put into making it happen.
The accommodations were beautiful and unique. We also loved the variety of activities in our itinerary - mountains, beach, culture, wildlife, cycling, snorkeling, train travel, boat travel, whitewater rafting - I mean, what didn't we do?! Then the 3-day live-aboard boat just for the two of us - well, that was the highlight of a truly amazing trip.
The Travel App was fantastic and really helpful! Great customized service, excellent value for the money.
So again, many thanks for a fantastic travel experience. We look forward to working with you again on a future adventure.

We had an absolutely fabulous time, really didn’t want to leave Komandoo!
It exceeded expectations.
Angela & Tony, Kent, Dec 2018
I would just like to add my thanks for a wonderful trip to India. It was a truly memorable experience with so many highlights. I am already looking forward to returning to sample more of the country.
Our driver Praveen was a delight to be with and was always punctual and courteous. We were delighted with all our accommodation especially the ex-palaces in Rajasthan.
I would also like to mention how useful I found the Travel App. It was so much easier than shuffling through mounds of paper.
Many thanks again for organising such a great trip.

The whole trip was wonderful, and all the arrangements were excellent.
Drivers were on time, they spoke English, drove carefully and they were helpful.
The Notary’s House was just beautiful, perfect place for our relaxing afternoons. Food and service excellent.

Passion & Perfection
We are genuinely passionate about the destinations that we offer and the people that live there. We have traveled extensively throughout all of these countries and love using our experience, passion and strive for perfection, to craft amazing itineraries for our clients.
We deliver a bespoke, high quality service at competitive prices compared to companies of a similar nature.

We have a small team of staff in the UK who will support you at every stage and at a time to suit you – we genuinely strive to deliver the best holiday experience you have ever had.
Small Group Tours
For those who prefer to travel in the company of others, we organise a few small group tours to selected places in India. Our group size is always small, around 10-15 people and will include an element of off the beaten track experiences in addition to classic sightseeing locations. Let us know if the trip you want isn’t featured and we’ll try and set it up!
Going Beyond the Tourist Attractions
We believe that to really understand a destination, you need to go beyond the major sightseeing attractions and experience the soul of the place. That’s why our itineries will always include an experience or activity that we feel connects you with the place and people.
We have held ATOL protection since 2005, so you have complete piece of mind that all flight inclusive trips from the UK will be financially protected by the ATOL scheme.
Giving back to the community in a positive, constructive way is important to us. We support a number of organisations that are empowering change and improving people’s lives. Many of our tours will include a visit to these organisations, normally through an activity that they offer which directly supports their work.
