  • The trip was fabulous. Shimla is an amazing place with lots to see and do. Our tour operator was excellent. All of their suggestions and recommendations were solid. We loved our hotel and the location. All the tours were high-quality and we experienced no difficulties with pickups. Mr. Nitin was extremely pleasant to work with and truly wanted us to have a fabulous time.

  • We cannot recommend this travel company enough! My husband and I had been wanting to go to India for quite some time but had not done so due to lack of time to plan a worthwhile trip. Booking with this company was exactly what we needed--we told them the types of places and sites we wanted to see and they took care of the rest.

  • I got exactly the vacation I wanted for almost no work and probably cheaper than I could have done it myself. I told this travel company what I wanted and they just did the rest. The hotels and tours/activities were great! Couldn't have asked for more. Great service too they were very responsive and helpful!

Fantastic Chardham Circuit trip...

Fantastic Chardham Circuit trip over 11 days. The organisation was excellent. The guest houses we stayed in were great but most of all the driver Deepak were awesome. I would recommend this trip to anyone and will definitely use All Seasons again.

Went for the animals would stay for the people...

Our guides made an incredible experience better than anything I could have imagined. I wish I could tell them how much this experience has meant to us but there are not the words for it. Jim Corbett and Nanda Devi National Park were contrast at every turn, the people were warm and welcoming while we saw and experienced a life that we had no idea about. The environment and the animals were everything that we hoped and more! If anyone is considering a trip, go! You will not be disappointed or regret this experience. It will open your heart and mind while filling your photo album with magical moments!

I had the most amazing trip to Tehri..........

I had the most amazing trip to Tehri & Kanatal with All Seasons. My first time travelling with them, so wasn't sure what to expect. Tehri and All Seasons both exceeded my expectations, a real trip of a lifetime. Our Manager was a true professional, very knowledgable and always on hand to assist, he helped to make the trip so special. Its was such good value for the cost, I saw all the main sights I had wanted to, and so many more. I would definitely travel with All Seasons again.

Selecting a Tour Operator Should be About More Than the Tour Itself...

Tour itself was excellent but when the going got tough, All Seasons helped us beyond limit . We encountered a vehicle issue (due to collison on route from delhi to nainital at Gajraula ) and was stuck up in highway restaurant for nearly 6 hrs. During the frustrating period not only did All Seasons respond in a timely fashion but when they tried best to arrange a alternate vehicle which i understand was not easy and they assisted us which helped us to remain calm. Fortunately was arranged lately and we reached our Hotel Naini Retreat late night and rest of the trip went like a dream where all arrangements where above our expectations. A very satisfacotry family vacation overall.
