Darjeeling Sikkim tour packages – Review

Shamit Ganguly

Dear Navigator India team, The arrangements for my parent's Darjeeling, Sikkim & Kalimpong trip were very good. The airport pick-up, drop, hotel transfers and location tours were excellently planned and managed very professionally. The total tour was within the budget and at phenomenally low prices. Hospitality, cuisine, rooms especially the bathrooms and showers, cleanliness - everything was of a very high standard - probably the best in East-India. Thanks for everything. I can safely recommend Navigator India to all my contacts! I always look forward to such well-managed holidays. Keep me posted especially for preferred destinations such as Lakshadweep, Kerala, Ladakh, etc. Thanks once again. Shamit Ganguly
