Testimonials

The whole trip was amazing, it wasn’t just about fascinating places but the interesting and helpful people we came into contact with... It was a once in a lifetime spectacular holiday, one of the best we have been on. Everybody was so helpful throughout our trip.
John Keeling & Gordon Maxwell, Japan

We absolutely fell in love with Da Lat and our guide there, Phu, who was so generous in telling us the story of his family history... It was fascinating to be taken by him to see his own farm and drink a cup of home-grown coffee with him there (we were also blown away by the beautiful scent of the coffee flowers!)... All the guides we had were absolutely excellent and this added so much to the pleasure, satisfaction and appreciation of our sightseeing... Emily covered all the bases in advance with such superb attention to each detail that everything worked out to our very highest expectations.
Mr & Mrs Wilson, Vietnam

So many highlights! However, in Savute Camp, probably seeing eight lions parade towards us single file, walk casually by the vehicle, continue to the water hole, rest, organise a hunt for the wildebeests at the other water hole, and watch them race towards the unsuspecting wildebeests. Truly a wonderful encounter!!! Of course seeing a pride of lions, two cheetahs and a leopard all on the same day was pretty spectacular, too!!! It was clear to me, especially from conversations with other people either during flights or from other camps, that our experience was superior to anything anyone else did or saw.
Ms Penelope Proserpi & Ms Margaret Patch, Botswana

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
Mr David Wallace, North India

Our 3-week tour of India was truly an experience which merits a debt of gratitude to you and your team. From the minute we were greeted in Delhi to the moment we left Mumbai we never wanted for anything. The care, security and guidance provided by your team were magnificent! We had no experience of Ampersand other than their reputation but since our return we have made everyone aware that yours is a first-class organisation! The in-country support team was faultless. Led by Mr Mohammed Nazim in Delhi they performed beyond expectation. Mohammed managed to work his magic in ensuring we always had the best rooms and tables where ever we went! It’s no exaggeration to say that we felt like VIPs, being welcomed by the Manager at all our hotels and even being welcomed by the Manager at the Oberoi Agra, and that was just for dinner! We always felt safe and assured that support was there, unobtrusively, in the background. The local agents and guides were also first class. A special mention goes to Parmod Singh, our driver, guide and friend! Parmod is a credit to your organisation, he lives to provide exceptional customer care and in doing so exemplifies the often heard but seldom delivered mantra ‘the customer is God’! We cannot speak highly enough of Parmod from his charming greetings and welcoming smile to his boundless enthusiasm for the 17 days he took care of us. There is no doubt in our minds that the tour would not have been the same without him. And finally, Jessica our thanks go to you for making the whole experience come to fruition in such a seamless manner. The destinations and duration recommended by you were just perfect as was your personal service. So, thank you for creating an unforgettable and spectacular holiday!
Mr & Mrs Lane, India

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
Krista Weir, Sri Lanka

Ampersand was the ultimate partner when planning our trip to the U.K. Ellie was incredibly attentive, and asked all the right questions and made the best suggestions to get us thinking about the destinations and activities we'd most enjoy. Their expert local knowledge made all the difference in planning a trip to a place we'd never been before. Looking back, we can't imagine doing it without them! Meticulously planned and perfectly executed, our trip was a 100% win. Thank you Ampersand!!
Mr Nadeau, England & Scotland

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
