While on a family trip to Palampur, we contacted Exsul travel to help organize a day out for the 6 of us. The day trip that they organized for us included a jeep safari up the mountaintop that overlooked the town of Palampur in front of us and the snow capped mountains of the Dauhladhar range behind us. Once there they had organized a Hi-Tea and a quick trip to a temple. From there we did a hike down the mountaintop, which was for 2 hours and completely worth it. The whole day was fun filled and it was all thanks to Tamara and Harmit, without whom we wouldn’t have these lovely memories to cherish. Would definitely recommend everyone to contact Exsul travels for any of his or her trips, and we will definitely be contacting them soon. Cheers

Absolutely amazing trip. The hotels and service were beyond 5 star. The events were always interesting, educational and really fun. Most importantly, Tamara’s local team is everything and more you can could possibly want – knowledgeable, very well connected (magically retrieved lap top my husband left at security airport check! Not an easy thing in any country but especially India), and every single need from smallest to biggest was attended to with highest level of professionalism. We truly felt like a royal family yet were able to experience every aspect of India from poorest to richest. In short, you get to experience India in all its beauty, wonder, sadness, and magic thru the local eyes, hearts and minds of your guides. We are already planning to return next year!

Tamara and Harmit were wonderful to work with (asking thoughtful questions and providing a variety of options) in designing our weekend getaway to Panaji, Goa. Our transportation arrangements were clear and easy, and we were delighted with the bed & breakfast hotel choice. Next time–I want to have more time to explore all the options they provided!
I have traveled twice with Exsul and have enjoyed their high level of service and attention to detail. As a seasoned traveler, I found that India can sometimes be a challenging travel environment. Exsul anticipated the obstacles that often pop up while traveling along the less beaten path. Exsul even opened doors to exclusive experiences that are not available to the unescorted adventurer. If you want a unique travel experience that is tailored to your preferences, rely on Exsul to take you on that exclusive adventure.

Spent a weekend in Kashmir with Exsul Travel and was so glad I chose them. I had been an expat in India for 4 years, but still hesitated to travel to Kashmir. However, Exsul took wonderful care of our group when we went up to Srinigar for the long weekend. They handled all travel arrangements, located us in a relaxing houseboat on the quieter part of the lakes, accompanied us on a hike, treated us to tea with the Maharani, and gave us a wonderful boutique experience. I hope to travel with them again and can recommend them without reservation.

Exsul Travel and its staff did a fantastic job navigating the entire India experience for our group. They made sure we saw and had unique experiences while overseeing the entire process. I never had to worry about where to be and when to be there as they took care of all details; it was truly awesome and relaxing. In addition, it was so important to use their services due to the language barrier, the culture differences and our safety. Also, it was customized for our small group so we never had to wait in line which would have taken up too much time. We wouldn’t have been able to see so much in such a short period of time without the help of Exsul Travel. And, the Exsul Travel travel assistants speak excellent English which makes the entire experience so much more enjoyable.
