 We have just returned from our 5 week trip through Kerala and Rajasthan that you organised for us. We want to thank you for what was a seamless Indian adventure. We so appreciated the drivers and guides waiting for us at the airports and the warm welcomes we received at every hotel you booked us into. The hotels were perfect for us without exception.

 You seemed to read us well and listened to our requirements and wishes and the advice and recommendations you gave us proved to us you are exceptional at your profession. We have already recommended you to a friend and will always be very happy to endorse your company. Thank you for helping make our adventure of a life time unforgettable.

Our Himalayan adventure through Himachal Pradesh and Ladhak was perhaps the best trip of my life. Virender set up a brilliant bespoke tour for us that ventured over 5000 m high mountain passes with Buddhist prayer flags, into spectacular changing landscapes - cold deserts, sublime wildflower meadows, high plains dotted with ibex, yak, wild horses and shepherds tending pashmina goats, narrow gorges carved by raging rivers, and remote tribal villages near the Tibetan border where villagers live in 800-year old carved wooden houses and wear traditional woven costumes that change from valley to valley.

We journeyed through rainbows into the heart of the Spiti Valley to see 1000-year old Buddhist monasteries with exquisite painted murals, elaborate tankhas, ancient scriptures, and sculptures. We sat in caves were lamas meditated non stop for 7 years and received numerous blessings.  
In all, we travelled 4000 km in a comfortable jeep with an excellent driver and cultural guide who put all the mysterious cultural sites into proper context. The accommodation and food were excellent and the local people kind, friendly and generous. In Ladhak, we stayed in a most charming Hotel in Leh and visited all the key gompas. We trekked 90 km up high passes, through tsampa fields with Buddhist stupas led by a lovely expedition guide, drank chang with locals, slept in comfortable hi tech tents and all our gear was carried by donkeys.

It was a profound cultural and spiritual adventure at a very reasonable price. I came back charged and exhilarated and wanting to return to this very beautiful land.

As we were very keen to visit India especially Sikkim (whole of Sikkim) I feel that we were very lucky in locating Virender's Adventure Quests on the net. Initially we encountered documentation problem but Virender managed to resolve it rather quickly and was able to put together a long over two week itinerary exactly according to our interest. We were provided an excellent and  knowledgeable mature guide and a very experienced driver who was as keen to travel as we were. Hotel arrangements were exactly as we prescribed, clean, comfortable, friendly and homely.

The itinerary gave us the best of Sikkim with good exposure to the culture and to the Himalayas.  The attention to details was what I really liked and the trip went through like clockwork, affording us the ideal balance and flexibility to be free to move as we liked within the overall plan. Prior to the trip the numerous interactions  with Virender were good and I found him always positive and solution oriented.

Overall we have had an excellent experience and I do look forward to coming again for another quality experience to a different part of India with him.

I had a weekend medical conference in India. Going all the way to India, my wife and I decided that we should add a few days of tourism. We found Adventure Quest on line and sent an email. The response was quick and professional. Working via email, we were able to create a custom-made 4-day tour, including two cities, Udaipur and Ahmedabad, within driving distance of our meeting site.

The driver met us at the end of the conference. Before driving us to Udaipur (as planned), our conference hosts asked if he could take us for a short trip, so we can see another of their sites and the driver did this, no issues. Afterwards, he drove us to Udaipur and helped us check into the hotel that Adventure Quest (Virender) had selected. Great nice place, very clean room, excellent front desk staff, no language barrier, bedroom window right on the lake, excellent food, and most important, right in the center of town. With the guide (spoke excellent English) that Virinder provided, we walked to the beautiful Palace/Museum, walked to the shopping area and the local Jain Temple. In the evening, he recommended an addition to the prepaid program, which was an excellent evening show of traditional Rajasthan dance and folklore. We also went to other palaces in Udaipur, via small boat.

Next day, different car (very large, comfortable), driver and tour guide (he was a PhD student in Indian History, with excellent English) picked us up at the hotel and drove us to Ahmedabad. On the way, we got a very nice lesson on Indian history. We checked into the Marriott. We had made that particular arrangement ourselves. With Virender's guide, we toured a beautiful Temple, very nice public gardens, and the Ashram where Mahatma Gandhi lived.

Overall an excellent experience. Made us wish we could stay a bit longer, maybe tour another city with Adventure Quest. Would definitely choose Virender again for our next trip to India.

Finding Adventure Quests on the internet and thereafter interacting with Virender,  our friends and us decided to undertake our trip to Assam, Meghalaya and Sikkim and Darjeeling with Virender. We then ended up undertaking another trip with him, this time to the Uttrakhand Himalayas with our entire family, a holiday we normally did somewhere abroad.

Both the tours were very well laid out and  conducted and we have now ended up developing a long term travel relationship with him.  The North East trip was great fun and when some disturbances appeared to threaten the last leg of the trip Virender came up with a change that was just as good and cost effective.

The guides and transports arranged were all  the best and added value to the travels. At Kaziranga the trip was just perfect and our last minute changes in Sikkim in fact made the trip more exciting. Similarly my family thoroughly enjoyed our subsequent holiday in and around Mussoorie. Details were taken care of with a personal touch and we do look forward to our travel relationship with Virender ahead.

We had visited the Northern parts  of India, by bicycle and by car, some years ago and had very fond memories  of that trip organized by Virender's Adventure Quests. Wanting to spend two weeks biking Kerala in Southern India we naturally asked him to design a tour. We have traveled the globe and this trip turned out to be one of the best.

The trip was designed specifically for us and turned out to be  exactly what we wanted. All the major sights were covered but we had enough flexibility so we could move about and spend time exactly as we wished. We visited the best and quietest parts of Kerala, many away from the crowded tourist "hot spots".  Our transportation was excellent and the hotels as lovely as any we have stayed at in the finest resort areas of the world.

It was easy to keep in daily touch with Virender on our Indian phone as we biked to our hearts content. Traveling by bicycle gave us the opportunity to travel on quiet country roads and meet and interact with locals who greeted us with an enthusiasm I have experienced nowhere else.

There was also time to canoe and motor on Kerala's famous waterways, trek and do everything that gave us a quality experience of Kerala in the way that we liked it.

It was another visit to India that we are happy to remember.
