What our travellers have to say ...

Hi Max, We are back at home after the wonderful visit to India and Nepal organised by your expert team. Each day and every aspect of it was so wonderfully organised and it exceeded our expectations for sure. The hotels, meals, drivers, vehicles everything was just ‘perfect’. Please convey our special thanks to Mr. Vishal Gogia who has been the most generous person we came across during our trip.

Hello Ms. Rohini and Max Holidays team. We have received your special gifts from your staff while we were leaving from India after the wonderful and memorable tour in Rajasthan. Me, Alice and Catherine were very confused and worried for our India trip at initial stages but you took the worries off and made it so easy and enjoyable for us. Apart from the delay in the flight which was actually not the fault of yours, there was no problem at all for us in India. The entire trip was so well planned and executed that it was just ‘extraordinary’."

Giselie Catharina and friends

The services we received were fantastic and Max Holidays team deserves extra appreciation for the personalised attention given to even the very small part of their service. We are very happy with our holidays to India which were organised by Max. For our family it was just like a dream vacations and we feel lucky for coming across this company through internet and I must thank the owner of the Company Mr. Vishal Gogia for taking care of us and calling us mostly everyday to ensure that we are enjoying the trip."
