Had wonderful vacations with Uncommon Journeys5.0 January 2016
We have had wonderful vacations with Uncommon Journeys. Tours are "spot on" in descriptions and the results EXCEED expectations. The professional tour guides are superb in trains, motor coaches and on cruise ships. They become, like most of the tour groups members, friends ( some result in long term friendships). U.J.'s CEO has appeared on our vacations in the least expected places and shares a segment of the tour with us.Read more
We believe this tour company provides excellent products, superb guides and VALUE that often are uncommon in this segment of the business world.
We eagerly await out next vacation with Uncomon Journeys.

Fabulous Adventure to Rajasthan5.0 December 2018
Safehands Travel organised a bespoke adventure to Rajasthan for me.Read more
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.
