Fantastic advertised company on internet/social media what makes you think you will be going on the trip of a life time. However, the reality is that you are paying a lot of money for a dodgy, unsafe accommodation located in the suburbs. Unfriendly driver and few American highlights. The company offered “professionally-trained tour leader” and free wifi on the van but in my opinion that wasn’t the case. The “tour leader” had very poor knowledge about the places we were visiting and didn’t help me much after I had a thief in the hotel room. I am frequent traveller who consistently use many travel companies along with organising tours on my own and I have never experienced such a poor service. I would have never picked any of Trek America accommodation myself what would have saved me from being robbed and stressed on my holidays. Read all small prints before you decide to go on the trip because as soon as they have your money customer satisfaction & your enjoyable experience doesn’t matter what they have clearly showed after I have raised my concerns upon my return.

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 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.

Me my wife and our daughter had no problems all over the tour as Mr Rohit has planned exaclty the way we wanted it to be. Besides then a small room problem in Shimla ca use the room was small and there don't have running hot water as other hotels cause we had a child and we were first time feeling the chills of winter but it's was settled by Rohit as he promised us. Regarding the firts driver I think he is not fit to be a tour driver, beginning was okay but towards then end he was slacking but that to was settled by Rohit, by giving us a new driver.but overall we was happy and enjoyed the cold weather which we wanted to experience once in a life time as we are from Malaysia. We will come back to India and will get Rohit from Safe Hands to do the arrangements again. Will recommend to all who wish to travel to India SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. Thank you Rohit SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. All the best you.

            About Trek America

            Trek America (the sister company to Grand American Adventures) has excelled in the small group tour market for 40 years, operating fun, energetic trips for 18-30 year olds in the Americas.

            What Makes TrekAmerica Stand Out?

            On a TrekAmerica tour, travelers are guaranteed to have a fun, active, and energetic experience. When they started, their goal was to capture the spirit of adventure on cross country American road trips with friends. This idea remains with most groups kept intentionally small, capping at 13, providing the opportunity for you to really get to know your fellow travelers.  

            Who Will Enjoy Traveling with TrekAmerica?

            Seeking an adventure and adrenaline pumping tour with other young travelers who love being outdoors? You may find your tribe with TrekAmerica.

            Their tours are aimed at travelers between the ages of 18-38, a majority of whom are single travelers - they are an attractive option for solos as none of their tours require a single supplement. TrekAmerica was born out of a group of friends going on a cross country road trip - and the sense of excitement that comes with that kind of trip permeates their itineraries and culture.

            Unlike some of the more “party” centric youth tour companies, TrekAmerica attracts a wide range of travelers and their focus on adventure travel somewhat weeds out those who might be concerned about not have access to a hair dryer. "Trekkers", as they are known, are friendly, down to earth, open minded, and welcoming.

            If you’re not a big talker, there’s more room on a TrekAmerica tour to get to know people on your own time. Most Trek America group trips are kept small - around 18 max - so introverts will feel at home too. A few TrekAmerica tours are larger, with a max of 50, so if you’ve got your social butterfly wings on, there is something for you too at TrekAmerica!

            Top Destinations

            TrekAmerica operates tours in North, Central, and South America, visiting everything from major cities to small towns and villages. Off the beaten track attractions are a major highlight.

            TrekAmerica Travel Style

            If you travel with TrekAmerica, be prepared for an active tour! Activities range from cycling to hardcore hiking to whitewater rafting, and the focus is on enjoying the outdoors. Be prepared to embrace whatever the weather happens to be, and go with the flow whether it be wet, muddy, or dusty.

            On a TrekAmerica North America tours, you will travel in a small private vehicle, comfortable but not luxurious in true road trip style. Don’t worry, there’s wifi on most buses - so your selfies can be uploaded in [almost] real time. Days start early, so get ready for some sunrises!

            In South America, many TrekAmerica tours take public transportation.

            On overland trips, you’ll set up and break down your own tents and enjoy community meals around campfires. When not participating in the days planned activities, most “trekkers” enjoy seeing the local sites.

            Guides are friendly, knowledgeable, and fun - usually in the same age range as the travelers themselves.

            Why Choose a Tour With TrekAmerica?

            If you want to get off the beaten track, are adventurous, and interested in meeting young, similar travelers, TrekAmerica would be a great option. These tours are great if you want an exciting break, where you can stretch your comfort zone and get back to nature. You will definitely not have a dull moment with a TrekAmerica tour.
