We have used INB Vacations/Mohan Thakur for two amazing trips to India & we are currently planning our third tour under the direction of Mr. Thakur. Both trips were awesome: from Delhi to the lions of Gir Forest to Assam and the endangered white rhinos. We were well cared for--our drivers & guides were excellent! -- We were completely relaxed and just enjoyed the scenery. We have recommended INB Vacations to friends and they were happy with the services rendered too!

Used the services of INB Vacations when i visited India for the first time in 2010. Mr Thakur and his team were very good in looking after us ........ in the planning stages Mr Thakur was very prompt in responding to all correspondence and also very flexible in accommodating all our needs. He chopped and changed the itineraries until we got it down to a tee. The execution of the trip was also on point.....as with everything ....there were a couple minor hiccups through no fault of the company or their staff but all were resolved efficiently, professionally and very promptly. I was so happy with their services ..... i thoroughly enjoyed my trip to India the first time round ..... i returned after 2 years in 2012 and once again without a second thought got in touch with INB Vacations to help sort out my package including accommodation and travel arrangements. Even the second time and his team exceeded our expectations. I would recommend their services to anyone out there who is looking for tailor made and customised itineraries for India at affordable and very reasonable prices.
