We would like to thank you and Cox and Kings for making our holiday trip to Prague n Budapest a most memorable experience . We had the most amazing time in this trip. Everything was so perfect and well organized in Prague and Budapest that we had the best time there . The hotel in Prague was very good and centrally located with easy access to main location in the city and even in Budapest hotel was OK but the location was perfect . Easy access to metro station and nearby food joints were at walking distance and food was amazing . Our local guides in Prague n Budapest were very friendly.

As we were traveling in a group so we met such lovely people and made such good friends on this trip that makes our trip more memorable.

Overall the whole trip experience was memorable one and fun filled trip with lot of beautiful memories.

Once again thanks you so much .

I forgot to thank one person and that was our tour manager with us Mr Yazdi..... he was very very professional , helpful and courteous person. with his help our hotel Checkin and out in the hotels were very smooth. He helped us finding the right food joints for group of people who were vegetarians and finding the right souvenir shops for our shopping.

Dear Ms. Revathy,

We would like to put on record our sincere appreciation of the efforts you had put in to ensure our summer break in London was an enjoyable & memorable one.

Firstly, the hotel – Doubletree by Hilton, Victoria.
The location was very central to lot of attraction and the proximity to Victoria station provided tremendous ease in access to most of the attractions in London. The key point here is the nearness to the Victoria Coach Station & the Golden Tours coach station. These being the pickup points for the day trips out of London, we walked to them in less than 10 mins!!

The hotel by itself was very warm & welcoming not to miss out on the warm chocolate cookies given at check-in and whenever our daughter requested. The staff were very knowledgeable and very helpful. We would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Secondly, the London Pass & Oyster card.
3 days is just not enough to enjoy the benefits of the London Pass. The extent of tourist interest covered by the pass is immense. Clubbed with the Oyster card it gives a tourist freedom to explore & enjoy all that London has to offer. For anyone who wishes to discover London on their own the London Pass & the Oyster Card are a must.

Thirdly, the day tour bookings.
Evan Evans & Golden Tours were benchmarks for timeliness, information, comfort. Especially the tour guide of Evan Evans kept us enthralled during the whole tour to Warwick, Cotswold, Stratford & Oxford.

Golden Tours were equally good though the Beatles London Walking Tour mentioned in the Leeds / Canterbury / Dover / Greenwich voucher did not happen.

Last but surely not the least,
the inputs in the itinerary planning (and the moral assistance in our visa submission) ensured that we did justice to the time spent in London.

The whole experience has ensured a feeling in us to re-visit the UK soon.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Bibin

It was a real super awesome holiday that we had in Paris and Switzerland. All thanks to you and Cox and Kings team. Really appreciate your service Bibin throughout the planning. Even though when it was late evening you assisted sorting out our confusions and doubts. One suggestion is about the Derby Eiffel hotel in Paris. The room was too small and the staff was not that co operative. But, must say that the location of all the hotels was great :).
It was so easy to connect to important locations, railway station or bus stops. Thank you so much Bibin for all the efforts taken on making our trip a memorable one. Hereby attaching a few pictures that reflect our joy and happiness :).

Dear Bibin,
I am extremely happy to express my deep gratitude for the service, coordination, and activities offered by Cox and Kings. I and my friend had a pleasureful holiday in Thailand with fairly good hotel accommodations at the city center itself. The tour operators in Thailand were extremely friendly and helpful to explore more in the city. Moreover, Mr. Bibin's timely response and coordination is highly appreciable, which made us travel with Cox and Kings.

Thailand is a tourist destination that anyone can afford and it is a good starting point for anyone to develop the culture of food and travel. It comprises of metropolitan cities, beach townships, and peaceful islands. In short, Thailand is a land of golden temples, smiling faces and much more. I strongly recommend visiting Thailand to experience one of the diverse cultures in the world. Cox and Kings made it possible with an ease.

Just to advise you that we have come back safely early this morning. All went well with the exception of the incident in the train requiring me to pay in cash and the Novotel check-in issue (this latter issue was resolved and my Euro 200/- was returned).

Thank you for a wonderful holiday and your personal attention at all times. It was a great comfort.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the meticulously organised trip interwoven with cherishable memories.

Right from a Pin to PC every aspect of the tour was carefully taken care of. The stay was made pleasant with the deligent selections of hotels especially in Madrid and Barcelona. All the hotels were centrally located with easy access to metros, buses and restaurants.

Carefully selected sights and rightly routed conveyance made it all a memorable and fun filled trip.

Would give it a five star and recommend to every one- Go and explore this architectural marvels of Spain and the splendid coast line of Portugal through Cox & Kings.

The Most Amazing Holiday Destination!
We had the most amazing 5 day trip to Sri Lanka. The country, indeed really does have so much to offer – nature, amazing countryside, incredibly historical and religious sites, wonderful food, good choice of accommodation to suit all budgets… we could go on and on!
Undoubtedly, We would like to thank Cox and Kings Tours LLC for making our holiday in Srilanka a truly memorable experience and in particular Mr Bibin (Our travel consultant for the last 4 years)
Everything was so well planned in a timely way. The tour manager (Mr Neil) too ensured we were comfortable throughout the journey and took extra care of us as we were the 3-Musketeers exploring the country! The hotel accommodation and transportation was pretty good.

Geetha, Turkey

I am writing this mail with lots of appreciation for all the effort you have put in making our trip a grand success.
I am not new in using the services of Cox and Kings ,so I have an expectation from you people and you always fulfilled it so far. This time our trip was different because of the uncertainty Turkey was going through politically and when we got a call from your office we felt relieved to know that we are being taken care even in an unfavorable situation ,thank you for that. The arrangements were all good and hotel in Istanbul was very good but we it could have been better in Cappadocia. The site seeing trips were all perfect in Cappadocia so overall we had fun as family in Turkey.
I took my own time in writing this but I felt it better to be late than never.
Hoping to use your services in the future too.

Dr. Pradip, Italy

Thank you very much for arranging our ITALY TOUR (from 22/12/15 to 30/12/15) in a very efficient way. The tour iterinary was prepared according to the choice of me & my family and it was executed by you in every manner what we wanted exactly . You have proven your efficiency in arranging our tour & hotel-stay in a well synchronized way.

The hotels chosen by your organization were very nice,especially the Giolli Nazionale in Rome.

The tour-personnel in ROME arrived on time to pick us up from the hotel,and the guides in ROME, VATICAN, AMALFY-POMPII-POSITANO, FLORENCE-PISA, MILAN & VENICE who were chosen by you, did their job in an excellent way.

We had no problem in Airport pick up & drop off also.

Thanks once again for this amazing arrangement of our tour. We look forward tonsimilar arrangement in our future tours also.

Mr. Syam Raju, Mauritius

Indeed we had a wonderful time in Mauritius. It was a delightful trip with a perfect service, and a perfect itinerary and arrangements so well done to you and all your team. We felt safe throughout the trip, also due to our driver (Mr.Visham)being very attentive and we really enjoyed every single minute of our trip. Six days wasn’t enough to fully experience Mauritius, but it did wet my appetite to return for a longer stay :.

We are definitely impressed with your company and particularly with you for all the efforts.

Thanks again for making my visit to Mauritius a wonderful stay and awesome experience! I recommended your services to a few people already.

Attached please find the pics taken from Mauritius.

I want to thank you and your team for making us an amazing vacation package. Our personal guide Atanus was friendly , courteous and went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. The hotels chosen were excellent, ample vegetarian choices for the 2 vegetarians of our group. The itinerary was well planned with great destination choices. The Masai Mara was great and we managed to spot the big five on the first day itself.

We definitely are planning on Tanzania next and look forward to another great holiday from you'll. Thank you so much
Mr. Anil Nair

Mr. Johnson Mendonca

Personally, I wasn’t a strong believer in choosing a tour operator to plan a trip as nowadays with tailor made tours online and other cheaper options we can easily manage a cost effective trip. So basically I was just cruising through the Cox and Kings Website to get an idea of how to go about is when I realised that this package was worth giving a try.

So that’s how I managed to convince our entire group of 13 members to book the trip well in advance and from initiation to execution every step made us confident that we made the right choice. Yes there were mixed reviews online which were a worry but after experiencing it ourselves I was forced to write this review to clear all misconceptions.

The tour started with Qatar Airways which flew us to London via Qatar and that was exactly what we wanted to kick start our tour. The convenience of the AIRBUS 380 and the excellent service was what we needed on a 8hr flight. At London Heathrow Airport we were greeted by the one and only Mr Jehangir Bhanja (Tour Manager) who was all set to lay down his rules for the tour with his famous 6,7,8 rule (6am wake up / 7am breakfast / 8am in the bus). But he's not to blame since the Cox & Kings itinerary is the most exhaustive & inclusive among its peers. In order not to miss out on any spot & also to cater to our drivers 11 hour rule(in Europe drivers need to be given at least 12 hrs. break between days) For this reason we all had decided to strictly follow this rule and so the nervousness started sinking in. Before we could grasp all the important information we were already at the hotel to take the rest of the evening to our disposal after an early dinner.

Then onwards for the next 15 days we just went with the flow experiencing all the famous cities with great history and heritage. Every day was a surprise when we were travelling to all the famous destinations and wonders of the world. The Indian meals throughout the trip kept us grounded to our roots with the occasional experiments with the local cuisine which we opted at our own cost to get the local feel. Packed Indian lunches were provided on two days which could be replaced by fast food from those very stops to avoid eating cold food.

Mr. Bhanja is a gem of a person & excellent professional who ended up becoming our good friend. He's a real asset for Cox & Kings & I hope all other tour managers are as professional as him. He would guide us with all local options for sightseeing and also helped in our souvenir shopping in every city.

Now coming to our group, we were 39 & by the end of the tour, we were used to all the different personalities and our members personally apologized to each family for all the noise pollution in the bus throughout the trip not knowing that everyone actually enjoyed it. The coach provided was excellent & our driver Andre, Polish by origin was an expert hand who ensured that we never missed out on any spot despite occasional traffic woes at some cities and his habit of jerking exactly when we managed to find some sleep.

We were put up at reasonably good 4* properties mostly on the outskirts (to save on costs), but the rooms were cozy, Wi-Fi good mostly. All hotels in the tour were above expectations apart from the Millennium hotel in Paris which was a total disaster. Right from the AC to the amenities, everything about the hotel gave us a negative feel. Thankfully it was towards the end of the trip so we were not much bothered.

The Stena line cruise from Harwich to Hook of Holland was a very satisfying one & we spent one night inside to experience the feel of a luxury cruise.

Finally our trip ended at Paris where we boarded our flight & reached our destination with a lot of memories which we cherish even today.

Thank you Cox and Kings for a wonderfully organized trip. Many more to come.

Cheers.

I wish to sincerely place on record the wonderful support given to our family and also the scheduling a purposeful tour

Bibin, you support has been outstanding from the moment we announced the delay in arrival due to flight returned to Dubai due to snag on 25th Aug afternoon

We appreciate your coordination with hotel , car pick up as well the organizing a special tour next day morning (Classical Rome tour) in place of the tour we had to skip on 25th late evening (Rome in Lights) on short notice

Also we appreciate your support on Venice when you had managed Murano and Burano for 3 while booking had only 2 people originally

We also appreciate concern shown by calling us to check if everything was alright (shows care for customers)

Also thank Kenneth for proposing nice tour (a little hectic but well thought through to maximize sight seeing in rather tough schedule).

At Rome Vatican visit was the hallmark of the Tour (splendid). I intend recommending to many friends..Guide Marcos was best. At Florence the evening walking tour was excellent. Should place full appreciation to Ms.Erica Pratesi who did exemplary job..Pisa tour was well organized.

I must propose you to add the Venice tour of Palace and Church (which we had done additionally). In our opinion it was better compared to Murano Burano as the guide portion of the tour was less than satisfactory

In terms of stay we feel the Bizanzio (Venice) was the best..
