beautiful place to visit
Nov 2019
tawang is a beautiful place to go to. the journey is the highlight. from tawang you can see the nearby places like jaswant singh memorial, nuranang falls, lumla, bumla, sangetsar lake, war memorial, sound and light show of the indo china war of 1962. the food is an issue here. vegetarian options are minimal. the road conditions are unpredictable.

Well organised Arunachal trip
Apr 2019 • Family
Excellent customer service! The Grand Eastern team arranged a beautiful summer Holiday to Arunachal Pradesh and all of our family appreciate the efforts put by Mr. Raktim to keep us happy and satisfy. Everything was organized and well planned. Mr. Raktim was available 24/7 to make sure things ran smoothly for us. We would definitely use his services again and would highly recommend the company to all

We had a great experience during our week long trip through Arunachal Pradesh with Grand Eastern! Our driver was obviously very experienced and well equipt to handle the wary road conditions. Got us everywhere we needed to go in a safe & timely manner! They made wonderful suggestions about homestays and activities. I would love to take their services again and would definitely recommend!

A visit to the "Land of rising sun"
Nov 2018 • Couples
I had visited "Arunachal Pradesh" in the first week of November along with my husband. We had a couple of destinations in mind and were already aware of the huge distances involved between the various destinations. Had spoken to a couple of tour operators but all of them advised not to go ahead with the itinerary we had in mind as we had limited time(ten days) and it would be not possible to cover all of them!!.. Happened to go through a youtube video and found out about Grand Eastern holidays...On talking to Mr Raktim , we knew that we had to go ahead with them because he knows the places around quite well..Even through it would be pretty hectic, they tried to best accommodate all the places we had in our mind. It was a very well organised trip keeping in mind our travel preferences and choice of hotels.
Just to mention a couple of things that could have been better was that a better driver/ tour guide could have been provided as Mr. Shanai, our tour guide was not having the right attitude and a little unprofessional at times.
Also, coming to the stays , all of them were very pleasing and comfortable to stay at, except for Mandal Gang at Bhalukpong, which was pretty average in terms of service and cleanliness.
A special mention to Mr Raktim as he would regularly check on us during the trip and would immediately address any of the concerns or issues we faced during the trip
All in all, it was one of the most memorable trips we had and would definetly recommend them for experiencing a true glimpse of the north east

PS: Please check my instagram profile @ manshkd for a few snippets of this amazing journey!!!

Assam-Arunachal Pradesh Tour
Oct 2018 • Family
We six relatives toured parts OF Assam and Arunachal Pradesh-Pabitora, Nameri, Dirang, Twang, Bomdila, Bhalukpong, Kaziranga and Guwahati from 24th October to 4th November 2018. Our tour operator was GRAND EASTERN HOLIDAYS. Entire tour was organised by Raktim Bezbaruah on behalf of GRAND EASTERN HOLIDAYS. It was an OUTSTANDING ARRANGEMENT by Raktim.
RAKTIM-HE IS A MAN PER EXCELLENCE.
TRANSPORT- INNOVATIVE Provided was in very good condition as if a new one.
DRIVER- DRIVER HAFIZ is excellent. He shown us each and every important and unimportant places with patience. He is someone special to mention.
HOTELS- Hotels in all places and one Home Stay were of the standard of SUPER DELUXE AND THREE STAR. One HOME STAY was probably the best.
Cost was very reasonable. Per head cost us only Rs 22,000. Cost includes INNOVA, TWO ROOMS WITH EXTRA BEDS IN TWO ROOMS ,MORNING TEA AND SUMPTUOUS BREAK FAST.
I love to go with them time and again in NORTH EASTERN STATES and so suggest to all perspective tourists in that side. WITH RAKTIM-He and driver HAFIZ around nothing to worry about.

Arunachal-A trip of a lifetime
Nov 2018 • Couples
We planned of a honeymoon but it became more than a honeymoon.I don't know what makes it so less hyped tourist destination but take my word once you visit Arunachal, your viewpoints about the whole place will change.I am sure you will come out with more than expected.Such is the case happened with us.

Thanks to platforms like Google search to Facebook surfing,watching YouTube vlogs to reading every reviews and feedbacks in Trip Advisor and lastly from our contacts in Guwahati, we zeroed in on Grand Eastern Holidays for organising our tour.Since we were only two of us traveling and had only 5 nights to stay over there, we were very much concerned about making it a perfect one.For which we had numerous session of discussions with Mr. Raktim Bezbora from Grand Eastern Holidays.He was extremely humble to listen to our every small requests made to him.(We still remember the Sunday,the entire day gone into several sessions of conversation with you for finalizing the place.Your dedication level and gesture was enough for us to go ahead with Grand Eastern Holidays for the tour more than the place of visit was concerned.)

Believe me he changed our entire perceptions till we reached there.He was personally coordinating our tour and ensuring us full safety.He had every words of assurance for us that made us feel much more relaxed.Every single day in the tour he kept in touch with us.He took every single measures to make our tour wonderful.We were deeply touched when we found out that we were allotted good rooms in every hotel from where we can have good scenic views.Especially the room in Hotel Norpheal Retreat where we were upgraded to a Super Deluxe Room upon special request from Mr Raktim to the hotel authorities which came as a surprise to us till we checked into the hotel.He also ensured the same in our Tawang Hotel Gakyi Khang Zhang.

We had total 04 number of stays in the whole tour.To be very frank Hotel Mandal Ghang in Bhalukpong could be better in terms of their guest services and Hotel Gakyi Khang Zhang in Tawang could be better in terms of cleanliness inside their hotel premises as we found out that pets inside were damaging the food plates and all kept outside every hotel rooms.This was definitely an unhygienic issue.Hotel Norpheal Retreat was a perfect stay in terms of class it provided.It was a real treat to our eyes and a class stay over there.If it retains it beauty like this, soon Hotel Norpheal Retreat will turn out to be a place of sightseeing in Dirang.A very beautiful hotel with amazing scenery around it.Our last stay wTsomuas a Home stay in Bomdila.Well What to tell you, it changed our entire perceptions from all the homestay we have done previously.Ms. Kunchok you are a wonderful host.Its a five star homestay if you are considering a quality homestay with your home kind ambience and with well standard amenities.It has got beautiful and nice decorations inside.Very surprised to find that the homestay is so neatly maintained by her only.We were truly amazed by the she treated us from candle light dinner to playing music while having breakfast.A person with a golden heart I must say.Culturally so deep-rooted you have really won our hearts.From her garden visit to treating us with her fresh garden vegetables we felt like so much in home.We were honoured by her in a traditional garb while leaving.It was almost a short stint of 12hours stay at her place but believe me or not when we moved out we moved with heavy hearts from her place.You summed up our tour in a nice manner Somu.

Another person without whom this review would be incomplete is Mr. Tashi, the driver man arranged by Grand Eastern Holidays for our sightseeing in Tawang.He is so tourist friendly.I have never met guys like him before in this profession.He was mostly concerned about making us visit every places in Tawang.Giving us every minute details about the places and its history.Apart from the contract,he made us visit 4-5 places extra.That too giving stoppages at wherever we wanted,shown us every places of importance on the way and taking us to the exact points till the car can go.He happily obliged to take our various photographs on the way.In fact he was so keen about taking our photographs making the journey memorable.(We have attached his photo, the second one.)

Its our personal recommendations to all you guys please visit Arunachal Pradesh.Its a different paradise out there.And if you are actually planning Arunachal then i will suggest to keep min 6-7days in your hand to visit this western part of Arunachal.Mr. Raktim you were right in describing us that Arunachal has got a mixture of both black and brown dry mountains as well as the lush green mountains making the view mesmerizing.Thank u very much from the core of our hearts for suggesting us to visit Arunachal Pradesh.Our lifelong we will be indebted to you.We are glad that we choose to travel with Grand Eastern Holidays and we will make sure that this relationship between us continues.Mr. Raktim Bezbora you are a wonderful person to talk to and deal with.Your concept, your personality,your presentations,the professionalism you brings in,the way you deals with your guests i think they are your USP. You are a travel partner in true sense.

We once again thank you for your wonderful hospitality!! Its been almost 3 weeks we are back but we are still unable to get over it..it seems we are still there.. Thanks for making this happen to us.

Just keep up this reputation high..Good luck and best wishes for all your upcoming ventures Mr. Raktim!!!

We highly recommend Grand Eastern Holidays!!!

Go ahead coz Mr. Raktim won't leave any stone unturned to let you down!!!

awesome tour arrangements
Apr 2018 • Family
Based on their very positive Tripadvisor and Google reviews, we booked a 11-days Assam-Meghalaya-Arunachal Pradesh Tour with Grand Eastern Holidays and used them to arrange our Hotel and overland car transport from Guwahati

I found the service and response of this travel agency to be excellent. Easily 5-stars. My emails were promptly responded to, and everyone showed up when they were supposed to. All bookings and hotel arrangements were perfect, special mention of Dhaden Gakhil home stay suggested by Raktim at Bomdila. We had the most wonderful stay at Bomdila.

Concerning the sightseeing, we recommend everyone whoever is planning to Tawang to stay at least 3 nights there to cover all the places like Madhuri Lake, Bum La Pass, Tawang Monastery, Ani Gompa and Urgelling Monastery. And of course, don’t forget to opt for the boating at Dawki.

Thank you Grand Eastern for making our holiday a memorable one !!!
We shall definitely recommend you to our friends and family...

Hi Shalini, Thank you very much for your review. Further, as we had discussed we are readying with some offbeat destinations in Bhutan which you can visit during Summer Vacation. I will send you the details through email. By the way, its raining here in Guwahati. Hope the summer is not too harsh there in Jaipur. Hope to see you soon..... Regards, Raktim

Lovely northeast trip with friends to Arunachal Meghalaya Assam
Nov 2017 • Friends
Myself along with my friends Lal Hardasani Ram Hardasani n Jagat Advani took the above trip from 11th November till 20th November. Raktim did all the arrangements along with his brother Rinku in Kaziranga. He arranged Innova car for us. I must say it was memorable trip !
We did not have enough days to cover three lovely states. Need at least 15 days! Lesson learn! We started our trip from Gauwahti to Kaziranga.
In Kaziranga we did elephant safari n jeep safari I must say jeep safari one can omit.
From Kaziranga we traveled to Bomdilla in Arunachal. It took almost 7 hours bcos of delays due to landslides. Our stay at Dhen-Dhen Galhyil Home Stay was most memorable. Two young girls were managing everything. They cooked lovely food just like home food. Lovely!!
From there we left for Tawang via Sila pass.
We did not visit the Chinese border but did visit monastery n war memorial of 1962 war. Lovely weather!
We left for Dirang from Tawang after two days. Stayed at Norphel Retreat. I must say this property was the best comfortable one. Just one day here n next was Nameri national park. Stayed at Eco Camp. Amazing place. Did jungle trekking next day morning n then left for Shillong. It took 8 hours to teach.
We visited Dawki village there n visited living roots bridge n crystal clear river!
I must thank Raktim Benboza for the all arrangements. Everything went so fast without any hindrance.
Thanks 🙏
