I was in India as your client through Gail Rosenberg ( Largay Travel ) in March.5
I would be remiss if I did not write and tell you how impressed we were every day of our trip with your guides, drivers and representatives! There was not one misstep during our wonderful trip to India…Infact, we have become, one of many I am sure, your best PR people for Greaves!
All of the people we met through your company were friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and willing to do anything that would make our trip even more enjoyable!
We loved all of our accommodations and tours.
Thank you for a wonderful and memorable trip…..we look forward to returning and visiting new sights and sounds of India!

I wanted to take the time to thank you for all the hard work you put in to arrange a magical honeymoon for Gayle and I. We had a ball. All the transfers worked like clockwork, the hotels were great and the route planning excellent.5
We will be back.
