I am at this moment on the "Jade" cruising from Amsterdam to Budapest. We are now in Bamberg. So far I have been very pleased with everything, their service is excellent and the food and the drinks is ...... Well I think you should find out yourself. I am very happy that I selected the Royal Suite, we are on the cabin # 316; good size and very comfortable.

We just disembarked from the Nuremberg to Budapest cruise and I needed to tell you before writing to Trip Advisor and other sites how disappointed we are with the total lack of hygiene and assistance provided!
I have never experienced a situation where servers and food prep workers who were coughing and sneezing and obviously sick were allowed to work and spread germs to passengers or customers! We as well as many others on your ill fated cruise became sick due to your negligence.
No one was required to sanitize their hands when entering or leaving the dinning room or ship. the rails were never wiped down or disinfected, and people who were coughing or sneezing then used the rails only made things worse.
When we were in Vienna I was too ill to leave the ship, the front desk person Jozeph was going to the post office and I asked him if he could purchase for me some decongestants. He only drew on the map how I could walk there???? Is this the special five star treatment you offer and advertise?
Many passengers on board became sick and it is your fault.
There were other issues like the quality of food at dinner and the poor service, but the above is outrageous and reportable to prevent others from this situation.

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.

            About Scenic Cruises

            Scenic Cruises, part of the Australian-based Scenic Tours company, is one of the top luxury river cruise operators in Europe. 

            What Makes Them Stand Out

            With two new "Space-Ships" (so named for their large spacious staterooms) in 2014, Scenic Cruises expanded to nine vessels, none older than six years. That makes it the newest fleet on European waterways (and even the "oldest" ships were just refurbished). On Scenic Cruises, you get your own full-sized, walk-out balcony, available in most cabins. Luxurious amenities, fine dining, and attentive service are pillars of their customer experience.

            Who Travels With Them

            Those seeking a luxurious all inclusive cruise experience and unique on shore excursions.

            Where Do They Operate

            Scenic travels all over the globe, and operates both river and ocean cruises, expanding their reach even further. 

            Why Travel With Them

            Scenic Cruises are fully inclusive. That means that all meals in multiple dining venues, all drinks (including fine wines and spirits), land excursions, Wi-Fi, butler service, all gratuities onboard and on land -- even airport transfers -- are covered. About the only things you’ll need cash for are souvenirs and postcards.
