I made the right choice by booking with Ajay and Distant India Journeys!!

I found booking from Canadian companies to be very expensive so I googled India tour companies and stumbled across this new company. Before I go on, I was very scared to go to India let alone trust an unknown company. I wrote down a possible itinerary and explained my needs as a new Cancer survivor. Ajay stayed up late in India to call me!

What appealed to me was that he appeased my every concern from what I read in books about women travelling in India. He explained to me he had a trustworthy driver who would be with us the whole time, who spoke English, who would pick up Tour guides to give us personal tours and who would be within earshot if we ever needed him. I was very afraid of going but every silly question I had he reassured me over the phone. It wasn't agressive nor did he simply placate me with quick responses; he understood where I was coming from and gave me reassurances....at this point I made the leap to trust!!

The months/weeks prior to arriving to India, Ajay and I formalized our tour. We planned the Golden Triangle of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur with a side trip to Goa. He was extremely prompt and detailed in providing me costs, hotel choices, extra side tours with the cost of tipping and admissions. Nothing was hidden! What I asked he provided me with answers. If he didn't know, he found out and got back to me.

I tend to go over the top, but I was so grateful for his personal attention to my queries that I brought his family Canadian gifts which he graciously accepted.

Upon arriving at the airport, Ajay personally greeted us (my old college roomate and I--two married women iust turned 50) with our driver ensuring we arrived at our hotel and answering any last minute questions. Throughout our visit he contacted us or met up with us to check up on our experiences in the country and with his guides/driver. Ajay wasn't out to make the quick tour deal, as I felt with other Indian providers, he was out to make sure we had the tours we wanted and was satisfied with our plans! You must know, there are things a tour operator cannot be held responsible for like what the people are like at the hotels or services they provide... But guess what? He chose for us hotels and places where he knew people would serve us well because he checks them out! Still, if there was a problem, I know he would have had our back!!

After meeting him in person, I could tell right away he was an honest, hard working family man and he became a friend in that vast unknown country and, for that, put me at ease to experience the wonders of India. I am extremely grateful!

Do I recommend Distant India Journeys? Please! Go no further in your quest for a dedicated tour organizer! Choose Distant India Journeys-Day Tours for the best quality of service! It wasn't chance that I connected with this company for I looked around for months... It was by choice!! I hope your experience is as wonderful as mine was!!

If you are looking for a great India tour, just contact Ajay from Distant India Journey . Why ? Let me answer that with the details of my experience with this agency.

I booked the flight from KL to Delhi on the 1st December, planning for Golden Triangle tour (covering Delhi - Agra - Jaipur). However, till 29th November I was busy with work that I hv not made any arrangement.

Ajay managed to make arrangements for accommodation in 3 different cities in such short period. To make it even more incredible, he has only my words that I will be coming to Delhi. This is as I did not manage to pass any money to Ajay for the tour fee. I had issues on transferring money from my side.

He was extremely prompt to all my enquiries on WhatsApp. When I reached New Delhi airport at about 11pm, my family and I were greeted by a man very presentable in suit and that was Ajay.

He was with us throughout our check in process to the hotel though it was very late. It was me who was eager to pass the tour fee to Ajay that includes hotel, driver, guides, etc.

Ajay was more concerned of us getting comfortable on the first day or I should say night in Delhi.

Even then I only paid half of the tour fee, asking for the remainder to be paid on the third day of the tour. I was as difficult as possible, I guess.

Ajay showed no fuss, no concern on the fee at all. He was very attentive to all our requests, he also constantly made a check if we have safely reached our hotel after each day of the tour.

On top of that he added a complimentary touch with a surprise gift sent to our hotel room.

I was travelling with 2 children, with one being a 2 years old. It was my first time in India, therefore I was nervous. Ajay completely made sure that everything went well, from the airport pick up, hotel check-in, our comfort in our travel, etc.

If he can handle my tour request with an extreme short period of time notice, without the payment, covering all the requests, imagine what he can do for you.

Just contact him, tell him your requests, concerns, etc and let him take care of the rest. Simply an excellent service.

My plan was to see as much as possible from India in 4 days together with my dad. We did the Golden Triangle Tour. The driver was very nice, speaks good English, is patient and relaxed and drives also responsibly (without honking). He also stopped at the right restaurants to prevent stomach ache. The sightseeing was great and we now have the feeling we have seen a great part of india. I would recommend this tour.

I Would definitely recommend Kashmir tour to other people.
Overall the Kashmir tour is a memorable one. The team were very responsive and corrected from time to time where the lacking happened.
everything was perfect, right from House Boat Manager, their service, Shikara ride everything was excellent.
Dal lake is famous for Houseboats, Shikaras, Shopping under lake etc. Must try ones when you are in Srinagar and if possible stay one day in houseboat. You will really enjoy that. Guides are so friendly n educated, hotels and foods are good
My tour planner was Mr AJAY SETHI from delhi (distant india journeys)
He is so kind,helpful and good gentleman.

Sorry I'm late on this review, but I can say, DIJ, and Ajay Sethi are the best. First of all, you can trust this company will provide you a complete and thorough itinerary, staying at first class premier hotels, and employing knowledgeable and friendly guides and drivers. Our group of three and another group of five (separate vehicles) traveled throughout northern India for nine days, including three air flights, and elephant & hot air balloon rides. We celebrated both the AARTI and HOLI festival during our travels. I am happy we have a ten year Visa , as we look forward to returning to India, and will only book with DJI, and Ajay. (Note: This tour was booked prior to our World Cruise, and we left the ship in Singapore, flew to Delhi, and returned to the ship in Mumbai nine days later).

Our association with Ajay Sethi and Distant India Journeys was part of a 25-day cruise to southeast Asia, India and Arabia. Ajay arranged five days of tours in India including airfare, private air-conditioned car, drivers and excellent and knowledgeable guides. The first two days, in Goa and Mumbai we returned to our ship at night. On the third day we flew to Agra and were booked into the Oberoi Amarvilas for two nights in a luxurious balcony room facing the Taj Majal. Observing the monument from dawn to dusk is a feast for the eyes. Our tour of the Taj was leisurely; our guide shared history and details that can only be shared in a one to one interaction with a guide. On the fifth day we arrived in Delhi, again to stay in an Oberoi property overnight. Our local tours at all locations were wonderful...in particular an in depth visit to a Sikh temple in New Delhi with a Sikh guide. Ajay spoke with us in the mornings before we departed with our guide and in the evenings after we had returned from our days' adventures, making sure that all was well and always asking if there was anything extra he could do for us. To sum up this review, Distant India Journeys gets an excellent ++ (plus, plus) rating. There is no comparison to the land tour offered by the cruise line: Our total cost was 1/3 less than that of our fellow cruisers; private car and driver versus bus transportation, private guides instead of large groups of fellow travelers, luxurious hotels, delicious local cuisine...it was a magnificent journey!

My friend Wani and I would like to say a big thanks to Ajay Sethi from Distant India Journeys, for arranging/planning such a wonderful 4-day trip to the Golden Triangle (Jaipur-Agra-Delhi).

We had lots of fun and the people at Distant India Journeys, as well as the drivers and tour guides they arranged, were protective, kind and friendly. They really took good care of us and were very thoughtful (we wanted to go book-shopping, and despite the tight tour schedule, they remembered and made sure to bring us to the book stalls that are famous for its local publications).

We'd personally like to thank our tour guides (Mr. Sharma, Mr, Narendra & Mr. Zahid) for the tours given, it was a wonderful experience and they helped us take lots of nice photos and they were very fun to be with!

And thanks again to Ajay for following up on us until we boarded our plane back home. We're planning to go to Sri Lanka next year and hope to travel via Distant India Journeys!

We were planning for our trip to India for a while to see our ancestral land. We were very nervous as we heard about different experiences/stories from families and friends who visited India in the past. We were looking for an agent/ company who can arrange our trip and give us that experience that we were looking for. I contacted a number of tour agents for quotes and then came across Distant India Journeys. From the very first contact, we found Ajay to be extremely helpful and courteous. Not only Ajay provided a very competitive quote but he actively listened to what we wanted to do in India and he planned our Itinerary accordingly. He was very flexible and included all the things we wanted to see and do in the 21 days we had. Our trip included a number of internal flights and road trips. We had a chat few times and he explained each and every detail and assured us of a memorable experience. Ajay was extremely helpful when we had to make changes as two of or relatives could no longer travel at the very last minute.

Upon our arrival in India, we were met by Ajay in Delhi Airport and he took us to the Hotel and explained thoroughly our whole tour. Our tour included Delhi, Amritsar, Haridwaar, Rishikesh, Agra, Varanasi, Mathura/ Vindraban and then Rajasthan. During the tour, Ajay was in constant touch with us.The hotels were very luxurious. I requested to stay in heritage type hotels whilst in Rajasthan and the heritage hotels I was provided were an absolute gem. All our tour guides and drivers were amazing people that played an instrumental role during our journey. We bonded well with them and they became our friends.

We were in India during Diwali and Ajay recommended for us to be in Jaipur during Diwali. We are so glad that we did. This was an experience that will be with us for a long time.Many thanks for helping us with the shopping and the precious gifts which we shall treasure.

I can not thank Ajay enough for making our first trip to India such a memorable one, which I can not stop talking about with my friends and families. Through the wonderful journey with you and the fabulous tour guides and drivers that you arranged for us, we had this most incredible experience and absolutely feel blessed to have visited our ancestral land and feel proud of our heritage. No doubt, this was the first of many tours with Distant India Journeys. We will strongly recommend Ajay and his company to anyone wanting to have an Incredible India experience.
