My wife and I canít say enough about the experience we had with Imperium Journeys and some of their people, in particular Narinder who was our driver/guide for 10 days. Imperium organized a great trip and booked well-priced, high-quality hotels that met our requirement, i.e. to have a fitness center.

We had never traveled in India before and appreciated how Narinder selected our route and itinerary. We gave him an idea of what we wanted to see, how many driving days and how much driving each day and he took care of the rest Ė assembling an amazing 10-day itinerary. We saw the usual great sites and also some of the off-the-beaten-tracks places like a grade school in Agra and a local Sikh temple in Pushkar. Indeed, the planning and the itinerary were excellent. But Narinder himself made the entire experience truly memorable, hassle free and a joy. Narinder is very knowledgeable and a gentle, interesting and easy going soul.

We enjoyed our time with him immensely and always felt safe and in good hands with him as our leader. I canít think of any better way to see India than in the capable and caring hands of Imperium Journeys. And by the way, anyone who wants to contact me with more questions should feel free to do so. Imperium will be happy to give you my contact information in California.

Mr. Brian Kinahan & Cami Kinahan

I have been shy about posting on Facebook and websites, but a resolution for 2014 is to share experiences that might be useful to others. Since I consult websites in planning for travel, I want to be sure everyone hears about Imperium Journeys in Delhi, India. It's now been a little more than a month since I returned from India, and after going through pictures, savoring the memories, and seeing the pleased expressions at Christmas for the gifts I brought back, I just have to go public and say: if you are thinking of travel to India, save yourself a ton of time and just contact Imperium Journeys.

I had a glorious two week trip organized by the director, Narinder Singh, and it just absolutely couldn't have been better. A friend and I visited incredible palaces, castles, markets, craft centers, villages, and even a school (photo is me with the school principal and his family) in the state of Rajasthan. Narinder identified top notch guides in each site who were knowledgeable and flexible in responding to our special interests, and all the hotels were comfortable, beautiful and reasonable in price.

The school visit in Agra stands out for me as a special experience. Narinder had explained in emails prior to the trip that rather than encouraging begging, it is more beneficial to give children notebooks, pens, or other school supplies and he suggested a visit to a school and a stop to pick up school supplies at a local shop. While the palaces and forts are of an unimaginable grandeur (It seemed that each one was more elaborate and impressive than the last.), it is the bright faces and smiles of the school kids and the incredible beauty of the women in their brilliant saris that remain with me.

Narinder is a fantastic manager and his staff is excellent. He does far more than you would expect and I can't begin to tell you all the consideration he showed us. I hope this info will give you a sense of the high caliber of Imperium Journeys' work. Don't even think about going to India with anyone else!

Review of Imperium Journeys

I cannot say enough good things about Imperium Journeys and its Managing Director, Narinder Singh. And, indeed, I have been a one woman recruiting force for his company because I believe it would be impossible to have a better introduction to India than Imperium Journeys gave us.

I should say that my contact with Narinder started approximately two years before the trip, which I was supposed to have taken the year prior to the trip I just came home from. Less than a week before my initial trip was scheduled to take place, I contracted a very severe case of bronchitis and had to cancel because my doctor said it was not safe for me to take a long flight. Narinder worked tirelessly to get my money refunded from the various hotels where I had been booked. I was very impressed. Another person might have just said that so close to the date it was impossible to get my money back, but Narinder went the extra mile, as he did in every aspect of our trip planning.

I have traveled very widely in Asia including to places that most tourists donít see but this was my first trip to India. In many conversations with Narinder where we refined our itinerary together, he showed exquisite sensitivity to the experience that we wanted to have in India. Seeing some beautiful, historical building and interesting landscapes was important but most important to us was having the opportunity to experience a part of India that isnít designed for tourists. Narinder more than responded to our desire to understand more about daily life in India.

He helped my good friend and me get invited to a wedding ceremony in Jodhpur (the attached photo was me with the groom Ė we were allowed in the back room while he was putting on his ceremonial costume), to be guests of honor at the Bundi folk festival (where we were accompanied in the car ride to Bundi by the Deputy Minister of Tourism of Rajasthan), to eat absolutely amazing (and perfectly clean) street food (including the best samosa I have ever tasted), to shop in markets where there were no other foreigners, and to meet crafts people doing traditional crafts (rather than just the middle men who sell those crafts in stores or markets).

The conversations with Narinder in the car and over meals gave us an extraordinary understanding of the subtleties of culture and religion in the parts of India we were visiting. We wound up writing a 57-page diary of all the experiences we had in our just under two-week trip.

Donít hesitate to visit India and donít hesitate to work with Imperium Journeys.

Iím already looking forward to our next trip with Narinder.

"Probably the most carefully managed itinerary we have ever had made for us. Endless patience and attention to detail ensured that our first trip to India was one of the most magical ever, with precious serendipities daily in every encounter. We just wish ‘Imperium Journeys’ operate in every country across the globe!".

Nick Napier & Kathy Berman SOUTH AFRICA Ė For Rajasthan Tour

"I just want to say thank you for organizing everything - we loved it...My wife and I are just in love with Rajasthan that is a really Memorable Honeymoon... the drives from Delhi to Jaipur and Agra we just loved... Samode Palace was my best....I will be able to contact you soon and just say.."I am coming back! Book my next trip for South India!"

Sasha & Leelawathie Alexander SOUTH AFRICA - Rajasthan and Goa Tour

"It was a great trip and we deeply enjoyed it...Our driver Mastaan was great. We can highly recommend him. When I learned that his own village is only 5km off the road to Jaipur I persuaded him to take us there – this was a small highlight to see village life. He was petrified that I will tell you this – but it really was a fascinating stop and I recommend it to anyone travelling that road with him."

What a trip! Your organization was fantastic. The effort & patient you made to change things at the last moment was much appreciated. I will in the future leave all to you and not choose the places to stay."

The Anderson Family MPUMALANGA, SOUTH AFRICA – For Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh Tour

The first thing we want to do is to send you an enormous vote of thanks for planning such an outstanding visit for us and for all the care you took to ensure that we were well looked after. As you know we were feeling slightly apprehensive at the start of the trip but we needn't have been anxious: you organised us so that there was exactly the right balance between frenetic activity and the opportunities to catch our breath. The night on the backwaters and the three nights at Philipkutty's Farm were a real tonic at the end of the trip. The two drivers - Vikram in the North and Ramanuj in the South - did a really excellent job for us and I would highly recommend them for anybody.

Neil & Joyce Mcrae London, U.K. – For North and South India Tour

"In part, it should be easy to write this letter to say 'thank you' for everything you did for us, but somehow I feel that these words are not enough to describe my appreciation. The one thing I would always remember is your patience with us, mainly in answering all our e-mail questions. I would like to thank you for helping us to make yet another dream come true…"

Sandra de Jager SOUTH AFRICA – For Nanda Devi Trek

"We loved everything from start to finish. The guides were knowlegeable and pleasent. Having someone meet us at every stop was heavenly. We are all ready to plan our next trip to South, Holy City etc. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!".

CAROL & DAVID ROSS , MILAN, ITALY Ė For Rajasthan, Agra & Varanasi Tour

"Thank you for a very interesting, exciting and perfectly organised more than five weeks. We have been even more impressed about how everything worked better than we had expected. I am looking forward to have another journey with you within the next few years, but the places left which we have not seen yet are getting less and less. "

HERFRIED ROSSMEISSL, GERMANY – For North & South India Long Tour

"Rarely do ones expectations reflect actual experience. We all had a wonderful sample of the enormous potential of what is INDIA. It has left us with a desire to experience more. Most likely this is a reflection on the high level of organisation and quality of service we have received from ‘Imperium Journeys’. We look forward to repeating our voyage to your country and sharing our tales with our friends back home."
