When our extended family of 10 plus two children wanted to travel to India over the recent Christmas and New Year breaks, we immediately thought of Bhavin Pabari at Rickshaw Travel (London). Bhavin coordinated everything for us in setting up a privately organized vacation that covered about 7 different cities in India over 22 days including all the associated ground transport, sightseeing, guides and domestic flights . His team was excellent, very responsive, always accessible and genuinely committed to making this a very successful trip for us. When adjustments had to be made to react to unforeseen events (like riots in Mumbai and a medical emergency), Bhavin and his team reacted very promptly to make the necessary itinerary adjustments. I’d rate them 5 stars! 


Dear Bhavin,

I just wanted to thank you for all the arrangements you made for our trip. So far, everything has been excellent. We spent a few days at the Grand Millennium which was a wonderful hotel and today moved to the Shangri-La Al-Waha resort which is also very nice and by the sea. I’m sad it’s passing so quickly and it will be time to come home soon. 
You organised a wonderful holiday for us and we had a wonderful time. I will definitely refer you to friends and family and will be in touch soon to book our next holiday.
Thank you once again :)


Dear  Aparna, hope you are well and enjoying your holiday.

A very big thank you from all of us for the fantastic organization of our itinerary. It really was faultless. Lionel was constantly attentive and accommodating whenever I spoke to him and it was also a pleasure to meet Mr Manzi who again was very helpful and guided us on various aspects of the trip, during our lunch.

A special mention is in order for Emmanuel and Bosco who were always willing to accommodate our requests and worked tirelessly driving us wherever we wanted, always with a smile on their face. They really need to be commended for all their efforts.

The trip was amazing and as for the trek it was an experince I will cherish forever. Words can't describe the overall experience, but I'm so glad that I ticked it off my bucket list.

Your recommendation of restaurants was excellent throughout and the icing on the cake was Khana Khazana, we really needed our Indian food at the end. Five Volcanoes was exquisite and again the service levels were outstanding. We loved the homely feel the hotel gave us.

I would also like to let you know that at Palm Beach we had an Associate of Manish Dawda lunching with us, a gentleman from Goma and again at Khana Khazana we had Mayfair Insurance Manager and a couple from Mombasa who now live in Kigali that joined us for dinner. 

Rwanda is a beautiful country with the nicest of people . I was amazed at the discipline and order that exists. Kenya could learn a lot from this.

I hope that we can meet sometime soon and hopefully I will come back to visit Rwanda, as I was truly impressed with everything I saw and experienced.  Wishing you and your family all the very best for 2018 with good health and happiness for the coming year ahead.

Warmest Regards,

Dear Vijal,

I've just returned from the Maasai Mara trip and it was a blast. So well organized and the quality of the hotel was unexpected. My family very much enjoyed it. Thank you for your hard work in helping us organize it--the effects were definitely felt. Will be sure to recommend your services when visitors bring up going to the Mara.

Thank you!

The safari was the main purpose for the trip and the experience was tremendous. We saw thousands of wildebeest, hundreds of zebra, several species of antelope, elephants, giraffe, hyena, cheetah, lions and on and on.  It was incredible. 

Rickshaw Travels from Toronto was in charge of organizing our vacation including the safari and our extensions into Vic Falls and Cape Town. Naz was our agent and her assistance was invaluable.  Her experience and advice helped to make this the trip of a lifetime. Our driver/guide Boniface was very knowledgeable of everything that walked, flew, swam or slithered.  He kept us informed and entertained for 7 days as we bumped and bounced along the dusty Serengeti roads, stopping often for photo opportunities.  Boniface really did make our safari everything we hoped it would be and more.

All our flights, airport transfers and day tours were arranged for us so we didn’t have to worry about hailing cabs, booking flights etc. I would highly recommend Naz and Rickshaw Travels.

My wife and I were looking to go somewhere special for our 10 year anniversary and having used Rickshaw Travel in the past we entrusted Bhavin to help us. He was so quick in getting a number of options based on our extensive criteria and limited budget. We couldn't believe he found us an amazing deal in Mauritius which he arranged flawlessly. The flights were booked with a bassinet for our daughter and the luxurious Outrigger hotel we'd selected surpassed all our expectations. The process was effortless and so convenient giving our hectic lifestyle with a young family.

Bhavin even managed to talk the hotel into giving us an upgrade and anniversary gifts complimentary which was a lovely touch. Our room over looked the South Coast of Mauritius and it had an amazing view.  

Thank you Rickshaw Travel and Bhavin for a holiday we will never forget. We look forward to you booking our holidays for next year.

Hi Bhavin,
i want to say thank you for the perfect organisation for our trip to Tansania. It was our first trip to Afrika and our first Safari and we are very happy that we have done it with Rickshaw Travels.
We live in Germany and especially Bhavin from the U.K. called and advised me a lot concerning our travel intentions. He booked the Selous Serena Camp for us and organised the in and outcoming flights from Dar -Selous-Sansibar.
At our arrival in Dar we went to the office of rickshaw travel and there the staff and ecspecially Andrea took care of us .All of them were very friendly and helpful.
The lodge in Selous was georgious,the manager elliot and the rest of the staff was looking after us like "v.i.p." people.  It was wonderful and the treatment and service amazing!!! Even the food was like in a five star hotel. During the safari we saw all the animals (our ranger made sure that we saw all of them,he was very ambitious) .It was such a nice experience and adventure. For sure it was not our last trip to Afrika and our last safari.
I will recommend Rickshaw Travels to all my friends and family because of their excellent service.
Best regards

A massive thank you to Bhavin and his team on the ground in Zanzibar. You provided a fantastic service by coordinating the transportation of all our wedding guests from the airport to the resort and then back again. The guided tours which were also organized for our guests were thoroughly enjoyed and very well planned. In total, over 100 journeys were organized and to say we were amazed at the professionalism of the team is an understatement. Thank you again to everybody at Rickshaw Travels for your hard work and patience and for making sure that the whole process ran so smoothly.
