In September this year 18, we participated in a two week tour called “A Glimpse of India” with Alyson as our tour guide. For us, this being our first time in India, it was the perfect tour and Alyson was an excellent guide. It was a small group with just six of us and we had great accommodation, a very comfortable mini bus with wi fi provided (probably the best overseas trip I have taken for availability of wi fi, which enabled me to write and post my blog and do regular posts on Facebook as we travelled) and also an Indian guide and driver. Alyson certainly knows her stuff when it comes to India and this helped smooth the way for us, and we had a very interesting and fun time exploring just a small part of India. We can certainly recommend Alyson to anyone contemplating a trip to this country, and have wonderful memories and photos to look back on.

When friends asked us to join them on a trip to India we quickly decided the tour Alyson had planned was too good to miss. She knows the region well and has embraced India with her love of Indian antique furniture. Ours was a textile tour where we were taken to a cotton block screening warehouse, silk warehouses, weaving demonstration, paper recycling plant and a large warehouse of antique furniture as well as all the tourist spots.
Travelling in a small group of eight, Alyson became part of the group whilst leading and directing us often from the back of the small bus. She was excellent with her advice on how to keep safe and healthy.
Visiting India can be a challenge however we enjoyed 17 days of stress free travel thanks to Alyson’s vast knowledge.
India remains in our memories as a vibrant, busy and fun country. We are pleased we trusted Alyson and took up the offer of joining this trip.

“Alyson, your knowledge of India – the culture, foods, markets, the verdant green of the tea plantations, visiting a spice farm and seeing how spices actually grow, seeing how the boat people live on or by the river…was appreciated by everyone. I loved that every day was different.” –
