My experience with Enriching Journeys has been superior to what I have previously encountered. Their response time and ability to provide on-the-spot solutions is highly valuable. I have known Alok now for nearly 15 years and have followed his Journey. He is friendly and responsive and his company provided a professional and personalized service. I highly recommend Enriching Journeys.

My first and overarching comment is you guys are doing a great job and the trip was fantastic. Meet and greet and backup from Swarnendu was fantastic –Swarnendu reminds me of Harsha Bhogle when I first heard him commentating cricket during an Indian tour of Australia in 1992 – Harsha‘s enthusiasm professionalism and natural humility made him an instant hit with Australians and these characteristics will take Swarnendu far. During the Himalayan part of our holiday, we cannot speak highly enough of Harbans. His exceptional driving skills aside, his manner and knowledge of the areas we were travelling were such that he added more value to our trip than all the guides combined.
Arrived back after a rather busy week in India. We just wanted to send you a note to thank you so much for the transfers in India the team on the ground in each city were amazing! We were really well looked after and must admit that I will never travel there without your team. So when we were collected the following day we just wanted to get to the airport to get out of the city but the guide really showed us the true Ahmedabad and changed our perception of the city and was all due to him, what a great man! We had a wonderful tour of Mumbai and even Charmaine and Clinton who have been to India many time and done almost everything that there is to do learnt a few new things! Sunny in Mumbai was amazing, getting us into the airport and then checking in for our flights!
Where do I begin to thank you for the quite wonderful trip that Enriching Journeys recently put together for us to visit India. Truly, I cannot imagine ever visiting the country again unless we come with you! Every detail was thought about and taken care of: we wanted for nothing. You are a master tour operator and I will forever be grateful to M Bicket for recommending you to us. Thank you for the huge care you took to ensure we were safe, culturally stimulated, and extremely well looked after throughout our visit. Please also thank Mr Anup for us who was most courteous and attentive during our Delhi stop-offs, and also to repeat that Shamsher was a great success.
We had an excellent service from Enriching Journeys. Everything went according to plan and our guide was knowledgeable, sympathetic and helpful. Bhushan & Prakash were excellent throughout. Selection of accommodation were brilliant for instance Glenburn. The Oberoi was sumptuous. Generally everything worked very well. Bhusan and Prakash were excellent throughout. The former adjusted the programme very well to meet our wishes for more walks and less sight-seeing and was a charming companion, always expert but very responsive to our interests and questions and not lecturing us – as we saw a number of other guides doing during our trip.
The team was excellent. Everything was attended & we who well looked after. Alok was wonderful! A wonderful trip. Thank you for a magical experience & a special thank you for receiving my gold necklace when I inadvertently left in one of the vehicles- an outstanding team.
The perfect driver for the trip- courteous, on time, caring, helpful.
All guides were fantastic & knew their history so well. The range & quality of hotels were fantastic. Every detail was considered & external so well, which left us to feel stress free & first enjoy the adventure. A trip of a lifetime, filled with amazing memories.
Enriching Journeys is quite simply the most formidable DMC operating in India. Their attention to detail and creativity is quite frankly second-to-none. Alok and Sachit bring a wealth of experience from years within the industry, and this knowledge combined with a small, innovative team ensures that the client experience on the ground is absolutely superb. They know the best guides, drivers and helpful insights from Alok and Sachit ensure that even the most complex itineraries are fulfilled with perfection and dedication. Many DMCs claim they can offer all of this, but few can actually deliver and get the glowing feedback that we receive back from our clients. A case in point; one client wanted a spiritual journey to India covering two months. Highlights included the Kumbh Mela, the Sacred River Festival at Ahilya Fort, food tours in Amritsar and Delhi, and even yoga in Rishikesh to mention just a few elements to this complex journey. Not many DMCs have the foresight and attention to detail to pull off this itinerary so well. ‘Lifechanging’ was the comment we got back from the client. Need we say more.
St. Andrew’s Episcopal School returned safe and sound from India last night — our experience could not have been better … very intense, amazing, striking, beautiful, highly educational, etc. I will send a much more detailed review later this week, but suffice to say many in the group want to know when the next India adventure will be.
Alok Singh of Enriching Journeys has arranged all aspects of holidays that we have had in very different parts of India and we cannot praise him enough. Whilst all of our communication has, of necessity, been by e-mail, Alok was skilled in being able to get a sense of the kind of travellers we were. He tuned into our particular needs and wishes from the beginning, applied his extensive knowledge and experience carefully and produced brilliant itineraries that took everything into account. His attention to detail is phenomenal and we valued being able to have such a helpful ongoing dialogue with him throughout. The combination of warmth, experience and efficiency in his communication with us made the planning process in itself enjoyable. We knew that we were in safe hands. Alok’s active interest and availability continued as we embarked on our adventures and we agreed that the company was well named – our journeys were indeed enriched!
Executive Edge Travel have used Enriching Journeys since their launch and have always found Alok and the Team to be knowledgeable, proactive & prompt to respond, even with the most challenging of schedules. They are extremely professional and with their extensive wealth of information create the most magical bespoke itineraries for our VIP clients. We have received numerous glowing feedbacks from our clients in how amazing their trip was through Enriching Journeys. We look forward to our continued relationship and entrusting Enriching Journeys with more of our valued clients.
Enriching Journeys have been such a joy to us. My partner and I are so grateful to them for all they do. Our trips to India have been life-changing, honestly. The care and attention that go into planning them and making everything happen – down to the last beautiful detail – is incredible. Alok and his team have enriched our lives with their imagination, thoughtfulness and generosity of spirit. And they will continue to do so – we will always go with them. Thank you Enriching Journeys!
There are nearly as many India DMC’s as spin bowlers, and over 98% offer little more than “pure spin”. Enriching Journeys is refreshing DMC representing the other 2%. Alok Singh established his business to create and deliver unique journeys for visitors looking for more than just combination of anonymous brand hotels, temple visits and curry dinners. Being a DMC in my own right for over thirty six years in a different, complimentary, destination, I have an inkling of what discerning travellers expect and Enriching Journeys fits this niche very well. Alok custom designs every itinerary, determining what the traveller is looking for and then plans and operates the voyage with minute attention to detail. India is a very confusing and complicated country and the wheels can fall off, literally. EJ works with only the best accommodation, transport and guides in every location to avoid any possible problems. It may cost a marginally more, but it’s money well spent for the traveller, and it does not compromise EJ’s value ethos. I’m proud that Enriching Journeys is my India DMC. My clients return with great reports and many return to India for another visit.
