Right from the time Shri Abhay Deshpande took us through the detailed itinerary of our trip till our last day in Srinagar, we have only positive feedback to give you. All credit to Smita and Isha Tours for arranging a very well organized trip for us. We were a little apprehensive before the trip as we were a group of twelve ladies, but thanks to you we did not face any problem throughout our journey. All the hotels where we were put up were more than satisfactory and the food arrangements were also up to the mark. Moreover, we realized that your names, i.e. Shri Atmaram Parab and Isha Tours, are well respected in these area and people are ready to help anyone associated with these names. The tour co-ordinators and the drivers assigned to us were polite and courteous. We were also satisfied with the vehicles provided by you. All in all, it was a very smooth and hassle free journey. With all the arrangements duly taken care of, we were free to enjoy the landscape and the awesome beauty of this place without having to worry about any thing. You will probably get more mails from some of the other members, especially the youngsters, of this “Mom and Daughter” group. Apart from this, right from the “camphor lockets” to “Coca 30” to taking care of Srinagar sight- seeing at the drop of a phone call, Thanks to Isha Tours and also to Smita for giving us such a wonderful and memorable trip.– Ms. Shyamal Mokashi
We, a group of 12 Reiki Masters had been on the tour of Shrinagar – Kargil _Drass _ Leh from 29th Aug to 5th Sept.
It was an awesome experience for all of us. Our total group size was 107. And the way it was smoothly organized is really to be appreciated.
Following the Timings, Travel arrangements & comfort, homogeneity within the group were only some of the few things we all enjoyed. Sight selection, nature’s beauty Outstanding !!!
But the best part of the journey is we got some very good human beings as friends -Atmaram, Smita, Rohit & Meghan.
All of them were not only tour guides for us but they were just as our family members during the whole journey.
Nature, beauty etc is not our creation. Its already there but creating belongingness, love, taking care & being happy are humane qualities. and thats what touched us all.
All our wishes for their unique n special work. will be in touch with u all.
– Mr. Vinay Vaidya
Leh tour was a great pleasure and an adventure. The special attention given by you made it very comfortable to all pune group.The timely and right decisions taken by you in absolutely odd condition turned it to look so simple and built the confidence in all tourists about their safety, health and pleasure.
Your presence throughout the tour was cool, collected and pleasurable and exhibited the capability of an excellent leader. All and all it was a great experience and has prompted us to recommend ISHA TOURS for LEH tour.
– Mr. / Ms. Vidyadhar / Radhika Jog
I decided to visit Ladhak three years back when my friend returned from his trip which he had done with Isha Tours. I decided to do it in Aug 2013 and I was recommended Isha Tours. From the day I did my bookings I was at ease that
I am going with the best to a terrain that needs a lot of care and comfort. I was not wrong in choosing Isha tours care, comfort, excellent food, expert tour guides, expert advice and more than that a family atmosphere was given
to me and wife. We enjoyed every minute of our tour with them and as Ms Smita Rege says ” You cant do Ladhak once” so I am already planning my second trip with them, hope it happens soon…………………..
Love and best wishes to Team Isha.
– Ms. Joshua Newman

-Thanks & Regards
– Mr. Dilip Shekdar
It was a Great experience to explore the Himalayan range of Mountains as well as the Travel to the Highest Motorable Road in the World . The journey upto and after Rohtang Pass was exhilarating and the chilly rains and winds made us the day most memorable. The entire scenic beauty of Nature made us proud to be Indian and visit to Kargil Memorial shall linger in our memory for a long long time. Definitely it was a Life time experience and we are happy to be a part of ISHA. The arrangements in the Hotels and Lunch and Dinner were fabulous and no complaints ever. Last but not the least, Ms. Smita and Mrs. Geetanjali, the ever smiling duo have taken care of everybody with lot of joy and ultimately we were like a family. Being women, both have shown exceptional skills to negotiate any situation and the group really appreciates them.
Thanks again and we wish to travel with you again if God permits………….
– Mr. VIDYADHAR PHATAK
We had a fantastic trip to Ladakh & are back into our routine. The weather was very nice (and bit cold for comfort).
All the arrangements made by Isha tours were fine, Drivers were courteous & hotels chosen appeared to be reasonably good. Small tips & the brochure provided turned out to be very handy. Only the eating material carried based on instructions almost remained in-tact as no landslide situation was face by us. The tour program was nicely chalked out & Pangdong lake was the highlight of the trip.
Thank you again for providing us a wonderful Ladakh experience & we will certainly recommend Isha tours to our friends & family.
– Mr. Milind Rajwade
I have no words to express our feelings and experience on our tour to Srinagar – Kargil -Leh – Manali from May 25th 2013 to 4th June 2013.The scenery was simply out of this world; though there are photos to relive and revisit the sights, some things will stay in our hearts forever. Also the attitude and behavior of the local people was hard to believe. Special mention about the drivers who drove us all the way from Sringar to Kargil and then from Kargil to Manali. HATS OFF TO THEM for their patience and skill in maneuvering those roads.
Summing up my mail all I can think of right now is to thank the entire team of Isha Tours and express ISHA in my way as below
I – INSPIRATIONAL
S – STRATEGICAL
H – HEART WARMING
A – APPRECIABLE
Looking forward to more tours conducted by you all.
– Mr. Rajiv and Devaki Nadkarni

Just landed on earth!
Leh Ladakh is out of the world and Top of the world. Dale Lake made me Shammi Kapoor for a moment. At Kargil, I melted down as a small ice cube for Capt. Batra and each jawan for their unconditional sacrifice for my family. Himalaya made me realize how small I am. He was smiling at me through out. At Leh my dream Bullet ride was the melody of my life “Zindagi ek Safar hai suhanaaa, yahan kal kya ho kisne jana…..” I lived the day as Kaka (Rajesh Khanna) with my dream girl. The Khardungla pass 18380 ft., I felt the most proud Indian to be at world’s highest motor able road.
I saluted every jawan and laborer, who have sacrificed their lives to make me conquer it. Then the camel ride at ‘The Nubra Valley’ desert in Snowland. ‘The charisma of jadugar nature’. At Pangong Lake, I was Aamir Khan. The salt water lake is a puzzle for life. The simplicity of local cultural show, opened me up to enjoy everything in life, around me, gifted by nature. At Bhaga river I was Firoz Khan in my open Jeep, luring my dream girl again “kya khub lagti ho badi sunder dikhti ho”. All this and many more memories for life. Thank you Atmaram and Isha Tours. It wouldn’t have been possible without you, however, the journey can’t get over for all of us here…….

Our six family members booked for 4th July 2014 leh Ladhakh tour. There was fear, axiety before tour start whether we can complete this journey, as most of the members were travelling first time for such long, tough & hectic tour.
Your team has managed and organized the tour very well. The travelling arrangements were good. Food was excellent. Hotel arrangements were good and your tour leaders were excellent. They made the tour memorable. Thanks to Sagar and Geetanjali. They were really good committed, helpful and adorable and provided all the information on Ladakh during sight seeing.

Thanking you all once again at Isha Tours.

“Our trip to Leh-Ladakh was one of the most beautiful trips that I have gone for. Isha Tours has a major role to play in it! As a corporate, we were a group of 26 people and wanted a very customized itinerary to suit our needs and our time constraints. Mr. Parab made sure that all our wishes were fulfilled and planned the perfect itinerary for our group. The hotel stay and travel arrangements were very well managed and we were provided local tour guides as well. The staff as well as our tour guides were very cooperative and made sure that we had all that we required.
We will definitely go with Isha Tours again in the future for another blissful vacation!”
– Ms. Sharayu Jakhotiya
I am ecstatically drafting this for Isha Tours and team.The team gave some remarkable moments that I can thrive upon for life. I would like to tell you that I am in praises for the services given.

Not missing on the drivers, they were the rockstars!
Am overwhelmed and elevated to tell you that I would like to tour again!

We have been fortunate to associate with Isha Tours for your regular tours. We decided to plan for our visit to the state of Rajasthan on our own and sought the help of Isha Tours.
While we interacted with Mrs. Anila Naik, she was willing to provide all the information and tips to plan our holidays in a much better way. She even suggested some different locations and ‘out of the world’ hotels to stay.
We must place on record our sincere appreciation for her efforts and initiative. We were pleasantly surprised to receive her tele-calls frequently, during our tour to check if all is going on fine, creating good-will for Isha Tours.
Our stay at all the hotels booked by her, was absolutely comfortable and enjoyable. We must mention of our most memorable experience at Bishnoi Village Resort near Jodhpur, creating life-long memories of a typical Rajasthani Village, house, surroundings, local crafts and the wonderfully home-made Rajasthani delicacies
served with genuine affection, was the icing on the cake !
We thank Isha Tours and Mrs. Anila Naik for making our visit comfortable & memorable.
– Ms. / Mr. Pallavi and Sanjay Tikotekar.
After returning from African Safari, we are settling down to the daily routine. Rather, difficult to do so ,as the exciting events of the Safari keep on appearing on the mental screen.It seems Africa is beckoning. Before embarking on the journey ,we had some apprehensions. Not sure whether the standard of the resorts in the bush ,would be within tolerance limits. In reality, we found them far better than the hotels/resorts in many of the countries. The standard of cleanliness and hospitality by the staff , far exceeded our expectations. Food , in terms of quality and quantity ,was superb. Even the vehicles were comfortable and well secured. The drivers were perfect in every sense, giving running commentary and above all, very polite. They were speaking in impeccable English. The bush tours were beyond imagination. ..surrounded by wild life ,birds and so on.It was an experience ,we are unable to describe in words…. rather, short of words.
Thanking you and your Team once again ,
Looking forward to having similar such experiences.
– Ms. / Mr. Usha and Subhash Vengsarker
We stay indebted to Isha Tours for the most memorable tour in the wild, so thoughtfully designed by Mr. Atmaram Parab, immaculately executed & pleasantly guided, with carefully selected Best Hotels having wonderful ambiance and strategic locations in the wild, on the crater and around the lakes. And the exciting journey through the National Parks for the entire tour, to the mesmerizing Masai mara, Serengeti national park, Ngorongoro crater, Lakes Naivasha & Nakaru.
An experience of life time ! A must for everyone wishing to explore the wildlife !!
– Ms. / Mr. Pallavi & Sanjay Tikotekar.
THANK YOU ALL at ISHA TOURS for introducing us to relatively unexplored parts of Indian Himalaya. The tour was very much fascinating, and absorbing. The journeys were more exciting. We enjoyed it very much. Myself and my wife, Rajani, we both enjoyed our stay in a tent at Kinnaur Camps and Nako.It was altogether different experience and we shall cherish it ever.
In order to help our friends there in HP Kinnaur -Spiti, one way is to increase tourism.
I would like you at Isha take initiative and increase the frequency may be three tours
in August and Sept. every year.
You are already doing a very good job at Ladakh. Please have the same Hotels & the drivers who were very good and polite and always helping.
Thanking you once again and with warm regards,
– Professor (Dr) V.V.Mahajani.

Well! It was great time at Assam & Meghalaya with “GEETANJALI”. “She has done a fabulous job of managing the tour with all possible comforts being made available on tour”. All the Hotels were good. I was very much impressed with the ambient of Hotel at Kaziranga.
This was my 1st wild life tour in India. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Before I conclude let me convey my true feelings: My sister ‘Anupama Chonkar’ has some leg problem. But I am very much grateful to Geetanjali for helping her throughout the tour. Especially when we visited Root Bridge & Mawsmai caves, wouldn’t have been possible without her.
My special thanks to her.
– Ms. Asha Manduskar.
We had a wonderful family vacation in Bhutan from 3rd May -11th May 2014, thanks to the nice arrangements made by you. The airport pick-up and drop was very timely and very good. The hotel that we stayed in Phuentsholing, Paro, Thimphu and finally at Lataguri were at very excellent locations. We had very relaxed stay at all of them. The hospitality at the hotels in was one of the best we have experienced, including the room, food and overall service. The Innova car that you had arranged for us all along our trip – was in excellent condition. The driver was always prompt, neat, took good care and drove very well. The guide in Bhutan was very good, he knew well and explained us to the best possible he could – very happily.
Overall, we are extremely satisfied with the customized arrangements done by you and would surely recommend the destination as well as your services to our relatives and friends.
Let us meet sometime, to discuss in detail.
– Mr. Divakar Gokhale.
This is just to thank you and your colleagues at Isha Travels for a wonderful trip to Bhutan!
Actually , this was our first trip with Isha Travels, hence we were a little unsure about the service and arrangements.
You surely, proved us wrong !
All the arrangements, right from New Jal paiguri and up to Bagdogra, were excellent. Specially the hotels and resorts chosen by you were of top class and situated at a very scenic and picturesque spots.
You, as our Tour Leader deserve all the credit for making our trip a very happy and most enjoyable one!
Looking forward to another tour with Isha Travels & you….may be Ladakh!

Thanks for making our tour memorable and wonderful!!!!!!!!!
– Mr. Bipin Pandit.
Thank you very much for the wonderful trip arrangement for Bhutan. This trip was really as it is named – “Bountiful Bhutan”. Bhutan is very clean country (motivation/ inspiration behind our PM’s agenda – Swach bharat Abhiyan), treasured its sacred heritage and tradition and ofcourse very humble people.
I would also like to specially thank your team members – Salim, Kadu, KB Gurung. Down to earth and very humble. They tried their level best to comfort us and took very good care of my family and friends. Thank you very much for the hospitality extended to my family and friends.
Hotels in Phuentsholing, Paro, Thimphu and finally at Lataguri were really good, cozy, neat and at par services extended. Food – no problem, as suggested by you / Smita we discussed our dinner menu with chef. Thank you for the suggestion.
Do treat your other groups in Kadu’s Restaurant – The Taste Restaurant, in Thimpu.
I would also like to thank Mr. Rigzin – Proprietor of Galling Resort, Paro as he had given a separte room to my cousin – Rohit and did not charge any extra charges for the same. Dinning hall ambience, food is just awesome.
The excursion to Taktsang Monastery (Tiger nest) was an experience by itself. Thanks to KB who accompanied and motivated us.
Similarly, the hotel in Lataguri – Suncity (Rosevalley) ambiance was just superb.
It was really nice to hear the past experiences of Mr. Salim / Mr. Kadu / Mr. KBG / Mr. Rigzin.
Would like to end at a happy note and once again thank you very much for everything.
Looking forward for exploring more places.
– Ms. Praneeta Honnalli.
On behalf of the 9 members, the customized tour organized by Isha Tours- Mumbai I would like to congratulate & thank you all for making our tour a comfortable, safe & memorable one. The stay & ambience at the house boat in Nageen lake was wonderful. The preparation of food needs to be fine tuned. Our Tempo driver is a nice well behaved person, sober, meticulate & soft spoken, he would be an asset to the company he works for. Our stay at Srinagar, Pahalgam & Katra was comfortable. The food served was good & satisfying.
All in all our tour was a memorable & enjoyable one. It was a well co ordinated team work and all put in their best. Keep up the good work
