Hilda and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent journey to India. The places we visited were beyond our expectations, truly a most magnificent experience indeed. The accommodation and itinerary selected by you were beyond reproach, and much appreciated by us both.
The Guides and drivers were extremely courteous, and most professional in every way. We would highly recommend the services of you, and Travel Talk Holidays to all travelers.
We thank you and wish you well for the New Year.
Peter S. Hosie-Richards and Hilda Richards.

Thank you for arranging a fantastic tour of Sri Lanka for us. You have always looked after our travel needs very well, but you clearly have a great knowledge and expertise when it comes to touring Sri Lanka and we definitely benefited from this.
We were very well looked after by our driver Denver who was at the airport on our arrival and made sure we were looked after the whole time until our departure. He was a very safe and good driver and a wealth of information during the tour. The hotels we were booked into and the attractions we visited were all first class.
We of course took many photos, but I attach one which is particularly good. It is of us having an elephant ride, just before the elephant squirted me with water.
We would have no hesitation in recommending that our friends contact you to arrange their next holiday in Sri Lanka, and would love to get back there again as soon as we can.
I was dealing with Tyronne Weinman from travel talk for more than 8 years. His service is second to none compare to other competitive travel agents in Australia. He always give the best price and very personal service which you cannot get from any other place. I always trust Tyronne when I buy air tickets as travel talk has the “cheapest “air tickets all the time.
I will have no hesitation whatsoever in organizing all our future holidays through you and also in recommending your services to all our friends and relatives.
Thanks so much
Walkers Tours had arranged our accommodation and transport in Sri Lanka very well and we experienced a fine level of service from this company.
The Indian leg of our holiday arranged through Sita was really exceptional, with Sita giving us a really excellent level of service with every facet of the arrangements being carried out with a great deal of professionalism and courtesy. Sita looked after our every need and provided us with service which we maintain is the best we have experienced in our travels. The company representatives, tour guides, driver and transport provided were all of a very high standard indeed. Our special thanks are extended to Sita for making our holiday in India a truly memorable one, in a land of contrasts, steeped in history and with some of the most fascinating sights one can come across. Could you please also thank Andre Rasquinha for all the help and advice he provided in making our trip to India really special.
Thanks once again to Travel Talk for another holiday experience enjoyed by the two of us.
Yours very sincerely,
Claudette and George Wright
Firstly thank you for a wonderful and enjoyable trip.
Needless to say a lot went into organizing the trip a job very well done.
Right from the time we landed in Delhi it was a very good feeling and the feeling remained right upto the drop of at Udaipur.
The agents and guides Delhi Agra Fathekpur Jaipur Pushkar Jodhpur Ranakpur and Udaipur were all extremely friendly well informed always on time which we appreciated. We also appreciate you calling us directly.
The driver Rajendra was always pleasant helpful, well presented always on time and the kept the vehicle very clean.
The accommodation throughout was good. We will not hesitate to go through you again in the future. Amr utha thoroughly enjoyed herself and wants to do it again at some stage.
Thank You once again.
I had attempted to obtain tickets for the Palace on Wheels (POW) from a specialist rail tour company in the United States, only to be informed that the ticket allocation has been exhausted on the date we wanted to travel. I incidentally mentioned this to Andre as part of a broader conversation about travel options on the Sub-Continent when he remarked that the unavailability of Sleeper accommodations may not necessarily be the case. He would, he said, make enquiries with people he knew in Delhi regarding Sleepers on the train. Voila`. He rang back and advised that through his source tickets were still available and if we wanted to go, he could make the reservations. I was flabbergasted and impressed at the same time. Did we want the tickets? You bet. In a couple of hours the flights, hotels and sightseeing in New Delhi and reservations on the POW, were all arranged.
Andre's exceptional background knowledge and experience of travel in India & Sri Lanka combined with his ease of communication, patience and humour created a really memorable and most enjoyable holiday experience.
Thank you so much for organising our trip to India.From our plane landing in Delhi to leaving Kochi we were treated as royalty or so we felt.We felt very safe as we had those two 24hr phone numbers.That was a bonus seeing we were travelling on our own. At the airport and at each different hotel we were met by Sita a representative and where necessary assisted with formalities at the airports.The guides were knowledgeable and courteous.Having Mr Khan as our driver for 17-days was a special bonus.He was a treasure.Nothing was ever a problem for him and I felt he was very protective of us,especially watching over us in Pushkar and became our unofficial guide on those occasions when we did not have a guide. Any Australian would be very happy to have him as a driver.Could you pass on our thanks for having him to Sita.
The hotels were great. The service was so professional and the staff charming.All over the attention was outstanding,maybe it was out of respect. We did not see any other people our age travelling independently .
The itinerary was excellent. You suggested Siana could be a highlight and so it was.We did not know Pradeep and Hemant were held in such high esteem.We were welcomed as part of his uncles, grandsons pre wedding celebrations.It was an emotional, humbling experience to be accepted as part of the family on such an important occasion.
I could recommend you to people that may want to visit India.
We thank you for your contact with us while we were travelling and for the communications in organising our trip.
Wishing you a happy festive season.
Shirley and Don Duncan
Firstly a big thank you to you for organizing our holiday (to India)
Andrea and I were very impressed with the set up of the itinerary which allowed us to relax after each city in what we felt were some of the loveliest hotels we have ever stayed at, not forgetting the service and wonderful meals each area offered.
The service offered via SITA (India Quest) in India was second to none. From picking us up at airports and hotels, to keeping in contact every couple of days making sure we had no problems or issues
We both agree the highlights of the 22 days spent in this wonderful country as the city of Varanasi, with its diverse culture and friendly people and the national park at Ranthambore, sighting a tiger with her cubs was something that stays with you for ever. Andrea would also like me to mention the shopping.
Our thanks go to all involved in your company and to our many guides and drivers who enabled us to enjoy India without worrying about anything re transport or hotels. Perhaps the most enjoyable part was the friendliness and courtesy of all the Indians we had contact with, very genuine people.
In closing Andrea and I would like to thank Travel Talk (Holidays) and all involved again, if anybody I speak to is interested in traveling to India we will be highly recommending your company.

Thank you for organizing such a fantastic tour for us. Usually it can be expected that where a tour involving 4 countries, with all the necessary arrangements that need to be made and the number of people involved, would suffer some hiccups along the way. Not this tour though! Flights, Connections, Transfers, Hotels, Tours. Everything went off just perfectly. The tour through Delhi, Agra & Jaipur of very well put together. We found the Tour guides to be very skilled and well informed, our driver was excellent and my wife has even forgiven the peacock that screamed all night outside our room in Jaipur (Narayan Niwas Palace). The Narayan Niwas Palace is a beautiful hotel that harks back to a by-gone era. Noisy Peacocks notwithstanding. The hotels selected in Singapore, India & Hong Kong were all very good.
We really enjoyed our tour and we will have no hesitation whatsoever in organizing all our future holidays through you and also in recommending your services to all our friends, relatives and acquaintances.

The trip was everything I thought it would be! India is Fantastic and we all enjoyed the time there enormously. The accommodation provided was superb and we appreciated the ability to 'escape' to our Oasis when we needed to.
The transport provided was good and timelines were strictly adhered to. The drivers were good, helpful, friendly and we felt very safe in their care.
The representatives who greeted us and helped us to check in at Mumbai and at Delhi were also very professional and helpful.
Andre next time I, or any of my friends go to India it will certainly be with your assistance. Thank you!
Prof. Bruce Singh, CATO & Head -Department of Psychiatry, Melbourne University
India is a fascinating destination! The service was excellent, the accommodation luxurious, the guides informative and professional and there was great attention to detail. All in all, a very enjoyable trip.
"A terrific holiday"
Just wanted to let you know that we had a terrific holiday in India.
Our driver for the Agra trip and the guide in Agra were both excellent. The Sita Travel people were friendly and helpful and even sent someone to the airport to see us off after our Agra trip.
The Park Hotel in Delhi was hip and cool, with nice staff and great location. (In Agra) the Taj View -- a lovely hotel.
Thanks for your all your help.
"a fantastic trip"

"At the end of our trip to India we can say that we are amazed by the life, history, the people.
SITA (our India operators) have been very good to work with. We will cordially reccommend the company. They are customer oriented and dedicated to their work. .....Travel Talk and SITA in India made our trip unforgettable"
Igor & Daniela Gonda, Australia
I was very happy with the service provided. All the guides were most helpful and informative. I was particularly impressed with Amit, who was the representative who took me from the Hotel in Delhi to the train station for my trip to Ranthambore. It would be great if he was given some extra recognition for his service.
Ranthambore was one of the highlights of my holiday and the accommodation (Ranthambore Regency) was outstanding.
I will certainly recommend your company to anyone intending to travel to India.
P. Libauer, ACT

THE BENELUX BONANZA
The journey I was about to undertake would not only in geographical terms span vast distances over land and sea......it was an odyssey which would cover a period of over four hundred years and one in which I would try to establish a "connection" with my ancestors.
