Client Testimonial

Salve sono il Sig Quaresima Gianluca volevo comunicare che il viaggio è andato tutto bene e siamo stati soddisfatti specialmente del driver che
ci ha portati per circa 1000km nel giro del rajastan e delle guide Paul di Delhi e della guida molto simpatica di Jaipur. Grazie per la bellissima vacanza già abbiamo nostalgia dell'India e
speriamo di ritornarci il prossimo inverno con tutta la famiglia.

Grazie ancora

Mr Gianluca Quaresima
