    Hi Mr. Karthik. Thank you, for this article. I will appreciate if you can give me an idea for the international tour operators for senior citizens. They will be traveling all by themselves and with a knee problem. They live in a small town Asansol, WB. So agencies from Kolkata will be helpful for them. Thank you, very much for your time!

  14. Mani Karthik

    Do you have a recommendation Lalita?

  15. Lalita Kakanadan

    I would say, its a high time we should give a chance to emerging Tour Operators. Since they are new in this market, they need to make their name in the market and hence they would surely ensure that even the teeny weeny requests and demands of the clients are met.

    Happy Traveling!


  16. Mani Karthik

    Is that the only way you know to find out what is good and not? This is not a certification, but a suggested list.

  17. niel

    Did you travelled with all of them? How can your certify that they are best travel company? May be misguiding …

    It.s a Marathi establishment and anyone out side it will be like fish out of water.I had this experience and believe me I felt like an untouchable.Horrible . The language of conversation is also Marathi.

  21. rtm

    I am totally unhappy with Thomas Cook, on trip to Andamans they put me in terrible hotel at port Blair , a room with just a bed ( called it 3 star), did not give time for lunch on one segment, being diabetic that became a serious concern

    Did not take us to many tourist attractions though was mentioned in their list, Claimed these were COMPLEMENTARY AND HENCE WE SHOULD COVER IT ON OUT OWN. This was mentioned in the offer letter. Did not give the iteneary till the last .

    In short package was grossly mis- sold. Did not expect that from a number one tour operater. Could not even connect to them on phone after the money was paid.
