Dear Tushna,

I wanted to let you know what a fantastic safari our family had in Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater, and to thank you for all of your help and wonderful planning.  Everything was taken care of every step of the way by Rickshaw, and the service was fantastic.  I even received a call the days before departure to make sure that all was well, and was given the contact information for our driver and guide Sisty, who did an amazing job.

I have been on many safaris over the course of my six years living in East Africa, but this one was hands down the most enjoyable and well planned.  It was great to know that Rickshaw had covered any and everything that I could think of, whether that was on the road or at the hotels.  We had a fantastic trip.

Thank you for everything!

All the Best,
Eric Taylor

We returned about a week ago from our incredible safari in Tanzania. I wanted to thank you very much for all that you did to make that possible. Your planning was excellent and you were so kind and so patient amist of my numerous requests . All the lodges/camps your suggested turned out to be really great. 

Our driver/guide Godfrey was really outstanding. He was so considerate and professional, and very knowledgeable about wildlife. We always felt safe. My  wife, my daughter, and my son in law. Everyone enjoyed the trip very much. 

I hope you don't mind if I just mention one small thing. In Zanzibar, our guide initially said that the  visit of Stone Town  was not included in our itinerary and wanted us to pay extra for it. After some back and forth, he finally agreed to give us a tour, and did an excellent job. I am not sure what was the source of the  misunderstanding, and thought I should let you know.

Again, let me express the deep appreciation for your work for our unforgettable trip. We certainly hope that there will be a future opportunity for us to return to beautiful Tanzania, and be in touch with you again.

Warmest wishes for a Happy New Year,

Hi Naz - Thank you once again for all your help, we really had an amazing trip and it wouldn't have been the same without your guidance. 
We would like to thank Rickshaw Travels for arranging such a great trip to Dubai and India to celebrate our 25th Anniversary making it a remarkable experience. Also, a special thanks to our drivers Krishna in Dubai, and especially to Hariram in India, both of whom made our holiday exceptionally enjoyable. It was truly an amazing trip. We have no hesitation in recommending Rickshaw Travels to anyone who is looking for a guided tour.

Hi Bhavin

This is to say that three members of my family including me booked our journey to India during July/August 2013 with Rickshaw Holidays.

The journey had many functions: religious, health-related as well as pleasure related.

I must say that the understanding and engagement of the agency was remarkable. They understood all that needed to be done and took great deal of care to arrange every detail of our travel. This care was felt through out the journey and with all the personnel – from car drivers to guides and the managers who came to receive and were there to ensure our departure at every point was safe and secure. We had managers able to answer queries – of which there were not many as everything was well organised – even late at night. We had bookings in the most comfortable hotels that had very high standards and the face of India we saw as beautiful throughout.

The important thing was that at the time of setting up our schedule, utmost care was given and where needed, authoritative position taken to ensure that we had the best travel/accommodation options as well as our time was properly managed. We needed to have a pace that was appropriate for us and we secured it with Rickshaw Holidays.

This is to say thank you very much for your wonderful services, your thoughts and your care for our journey.

Apologies for the delay in writing back.

With best wishes

July 2013 - Honeymoon in Essque Zalu, Zanzibar (Fantastic Service, Very Reliable)

We booked our honeymoon with Rickshaw Travels after we received a recommendation from a friend. The main advantage of working with Rickshaw is that they are based both in London and Dar es Salaam. The local office helped with their knowledge of the area and different hotels, therefore they found it easier to recommend what we had in mind.  From the moment we started the enquiries they were extremely helpful and efficient. On my own search with the limited knowledge I had of Zanzibar I was finding it difficult to find a good honeymoon package, Andrea though managed to find us a package with our budget within a day; they also helped to book our flights to Zanzibar and included airport transfers with very good and reliable companies at no extra cost!

The hotel resort itself was brilliant as recommended by the agency. It was exactly what we requested with superb services. The whole experience was really very well organized, with no troubles on our journey at all. The only negative I would say, and this had nothing to do with the agency itself was that the hotel lacked evening entertainment and it would be good to give couples a pre warning about this, but bar this, probably the best service we have had dealing with a travel agency!

Hi Pooja, Happy New Year to you as well. Sorry for the delay, the jet lag was killing me. We really enjoyed our tour with Rickshaw! All the drivers were punctual, polite and courteous.

Our driver in Tanzania - Richard- was super! He was very good with our kids and they just loved him. He was very knowledgeable.

In Kenya, Mr Karasha was fantastic as well. The lodges were great. Finch Hattons was truly superior!

I will recommend your company whole heartedly! Thank you for your attention to details - the batiks are lovely. I hope to travel with you again.
