Many Thanks Bhavin and all the Rickshaw Travel group for organising such a special trip for us. We are forever grateful for everything you have done for us. We would never have been able to execute such an action packed holiday without you guys.

From the moment we got off the plane we were so well looked after as our transfers were always on time and we always had really friendly drivers . The hotels were perfectly to our taste and were also so accommodating to our special vegetarian diets.

Last but definitely not least the safari package you guys set up for us was second to none! This is definitely a trip that will stay with us forever.

Thanks ever so much to all the Rickshaw Travel Team we will be recommending you guys to everyone we know!

Bhavin: Many thanks for managing our Hotel bookings. We received an excellent service from you by understanding our needs. The Sheraton Hotel upgraded our room to Garden Suite which was a welcome surprise. They also provided a very good service to us. I will put you on top of my list for recommendations.

Dear Bhavin,

We have been to several tropical destinations over the years and I can honestly say Zanzibar is by far our favourite. Everything was perfect. Kenyan Airways were very efficent and although there is a connecting flight is was suprisingly easy to get to Zanzibar. Your Agent on the island was waiting when we arrived.He was a very informative,polite young man. He returned the following day to confirm our flights and make sure we were happy with everything.

The Hotel was excellent. Rooms were beautiful and spotlessly clean, sprayed every night so didn't get bitten once. The staff were great.We were upgraded as you requested.Food was fantastic ,great choice and plentiful. The Hotel grounds were immaculate. The location was breathtaking, the most beautiful beach we have ever seen. Its refreshing to be on a beach where locals play and work.We never once felt threatened everyone was polite and friendly. Of couse the beach boys are trying to make a living but they never harrassed us.

Zanzibar has such a strong identity, it feels very exotic unlike any other tropical island we have visited. We have no complaints everything was perfect.

We would highly recommend Zanzibar and the Neptune Hotel. We will be going back.

Thank you so much for organising our trip.

Thank you for arranging the services requested by me. I am glad to say all services were delivered as arranged & requested. Your drivers were very helpful & on time & also went out of their way when our airline failed to put some of our bags on our flight. Your drivers took it upon themselves to ensure the bags were collected & delivered to our hotel when the airline eventually got the bags to Zanzibar airport. I am very pleased it all went as planned, especially as we were a big group with different arrival & departure timings. Your associates in Zanzibar did not let us down once. Again, Thank you for your services. Rest assured I would not hesitate to use your services again.

Hi Deepak, Happy New year to you. We were sorry to have missed seeing you, hope you are feeling better now.

We wanted to let you know that our trip was fantastic. Everything went like clockwork. The safari was amazing, we saw a lot of wildlife, which thrilled our children. Robbie our driver/guide was calm, professional and a pleasure to deal with. He looked after the vehicle like it was his own, washed it, kept it clean and drove very carefully. We feel he is an asset to your company, because clients like to deal with someone with his personality.

Deepak we want to thank you for arranging the safari, the gift basket and all our other arrangements. We had a trip of a lifetime and want to thank you for your professionalism. We will always remember this trip. We will definately be recommending you to our friends and colleagues.
thank you again.

Ngorongoro/Serengeti Safar

A big 'thank you' to you Deepak and anyone else involved in preparing our safari trip! It was excellent!! All of us had a good time. We were a bit anxious coz of Aryeh s health but thankfully things fell at its place and to our favour. Many thanks to Deepak for getting me the medicine and the pillows. Really appreciate his kind gesture. I have given the money for the medicine to Bonaphace to be handed over to Deepak. Bonaphace was our superstar!! He was so good, we managed to see so much - all thanks to him. We are on our way home from znz. I will try and send you a few of the snaps we took. We loved the Sopa at Ngorongoro and we hope to do that once more .. Thanks again.

Thank you so much for organising our superb Safari! From the moment we arrived until our departure, everything was extremely well organised. We felt relaxed and well taken care of. From the special touch of locally produced snacks, to our knowledgable and experienced guide Edward, who took care to point out the incredible flora and fauna, everything exceeded our expectations. We would recommend you to our friends and family without hesitation!

"Dear Sheena, I just want to say that your choice of Base Camp was the best. It was a mind blowing experience for myself and Olf Hoffman, both seasoned travellers. I have traveled widely around the world, including America, Europe and Asia and closer home several countries in Africa. I have been to the Mara over ten times BUT this was by far the best experience!!

No wonder Barack Obama and family stayed here.

The experience was one of going back to nature-simple but extremely well maintained tents, food and an uneatable service coupled with very helpful Masai people, who were never short on smiles. I liked it that we did not have TV's or even power supply. A completely 'green' experience!! I will certainly visit again!! Thanks to you and team for chossing Base Camp! Cheers
