I can honestly say that joining the GVI Turtle and Lemon Shark Conservation Project was the best thing I have ever done. It is an experience I will value for the rest of my life. Right from the very beginning with the field manual I knew this trip was going to be amazing but nothing can prepare you for how stunning it is. I remember one day, I was chilling in the hammock before dinner when I saw a juvenile Lemon Shark and a ray. I called everyone and we watched the shark almost beach itself on a few occasions. However the best experience for me was when I was lucky enough to see not 1 or 2 but 3 Hawksbill Turtles lay their eggs all in one day. It was magical. The staff were so knowledgeable and were always happy to help. I have learnt to cook food for 25 people with very limited cooking equipment and ingredients, loved every Friday BBQ night and made friends for life.

I did a month long program in Quepos, Costa Rica with volunteers ages 18 and older. It involved working with children and organizing various activities for them including teaching songs in English. It was an amazing program that allowed me to make an impact on so many different childrens' lives. Additionally, we did some activities to promote sustainable development including beach cleans that involved the participation of locals. I HIGHLY recommend this program. I was able to walk away from this experience knowing that I made an impact, and also with new long lasting friendships.

I spent a month in Costa Rica in 2015 on GVI's U18 programme. There was a week of cultural activities, two weeks volunteering, renovating a school and then a week of adventure activities. It was honestly the best month of my life and I can't sing GVI's praises highly enough. The work they do in the communities there is incredible and and I was honoured to be able to contribute to that by making the primary school in Roncador a safer, cleaner, fresher environment for the kids to learn in. It is an experience I will treasure for the rest of my life and I would highly recommend going on any GVI programme as they are an incredible organisation.

Safehands Travel organised a bespoke adventure to Rajasthan for me.

Kush (my guide) and the driver were wonderful travelling companions, I felt very safe which is so important for a solo female traveller. The driver skilfully negotiated some difficult roads occasionally with great care and professionalism.

Wonderful hotels chosen with care and very appropriate to my preferred taste.

I experience amazing restaurants away from the hotels, in the full confidence that Kush would choose well.

Travelled to villages off the beaten track, all adding to the wonderful experience of Rajasthan. From a camel ride across the desert to see the sunset to the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, an amazing experience I will never forget.

Kush is a great guide and made my adventure complete with his knowledge, great sense of humour and patience. His enthusiasm and love for India and the desire to share his knowledge with others is endless.

Thank you to Rohit and all at Safehands for making my adventure so easy and enjoyable. Great care and attention were taken with the details of the journey with quick response to any questions. Fantastic service from first booking to the end of my journey.

Definitely will return to India and put myself again in the exceptionally capable hands of Rohit and his team, confident in the knowledge that it will be organised personally for me with the greatest of care, professionalism and attention to detail.

We did a 12 day comprehensive custom tour of Ladakh. We had great time. The trip was well organised and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The guide was excellent and the driver was good especially in the roads in remote areas. Safe Hands and Rohit were available when we needed them.

We spent three weeks touring Nepal and India. We can really recommend Safhands Travel and especially Mr. Rohit. The tour and itinerary suggested by Rohit was excellent. The service received by the Safehands representatives, welcomers, drivers and guides was first class. We will treasure our memories of this holiday. Thank you Rohit.
