"Tour to the Western Ghats and Goa ! A good balance itinerary between culture and nature. All worked very well - no hitches in collection/drop off. Drivers were very good - helpful levels of English. Ooty and Coonor in the Western Ghats are very good as a chill out. Spectacular tours of Tea plantations, the Toy Train, the Elephant Safari, but no tigers and highly unlikely to see them ! Mysore, a great city to visit. Highlights - the Palace (spectacular day and night) the temples are excellent of their type and the Brindavan gardens. Special commendation for Anthony who was our driver to Mysore/Bangalore. Goa was lovely long beach and the beach shacks! Both your selections to stay were top drawer. Couldn’t fault either in ambience, quality of service. Fort Tiracol is an oasis ! And Aashyana really was gorgeous. We were in the cottages near the beach entrance, and we loved the peace. The dolphin watching trip and the food fusion of European and Indian was delicious. Also loved Old Goa trip with excellent guide - and the Anjuna flea market was nice presents etc. That’s it Vippy ! Already seems a long time ago but lots of lovely memories. "

"We arrived back safely after a long flight home but it was comfortable thank you ! It was lovely meeting you and your organisation was excellent and helped make our trip to Delhi very exciting and seamless. ... you were so kind and helped make our trip very memorable. The tour your arranged was perfect and we had a wonderful day. Everything was just right, the driver, the guide and of course, the Taj Mahal. Hope you had a happy Dewali and that all had settled down. Looking forward to meeting you in London "

"Once again, Vippy and Anu designed a trip for us that was truly memorable. Each hotel we stayed at was different - the tents at Manvaar or Ajit Bhavan in Jodhpur. What they had in common was elegance, beauty, charm and history. At each stay we were looked after by staff so well. There was lots to do and explore as well as relax and unwind. And the food ...... just amazing ! What One World Discoveries do is take away the stress of organising everything from flights and cars to the logistics of travelling across India and finding the best hotels within your budget. Thank you for making this the best holiday ever to celebrate a special birthday ! Sherry and Martin March 2018 "

"Hello Vippy, Just wanted to send a note to how much we enjoyed our recent trip around the state of Kerela. We loved your choice of hotels for us, more luxurious than our usual holidays but 2 in particular the Malabar House and the Spice Tree were outstanding. Your attention both in the planning stage and during our trip was “top notch”, even when we had a little “hitch” with our hotel in Allepey, it was all sorted brilliantly. Our driver Sajith was punctual and courteous, nothing was too much trouble for him, especially when we asked to do extra activities not on the initial intinerary. Chris and myself would have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends if they want to visit India. Thank you again for a fabulous trip. Chris and Christine Giles Oct 2017. "
"Hi Vippy, All worked perfectly. The Drivers/Airport pick up, Guides – all very good to excellent. No areas for improvement. Important that guides are flexible and accommodate client interests especially when some research has been done. Our guides were flexible. The range of hotels was fine. When we travel we are quite happy not to have luxury all the time. The most important factors are – heritage and clean and comfortable rooms. So overall another wonderful holiday, thank you. ++ a little ad I put on Facebook re your skilled and personalised service - brilliant. Cheers to Gandhi's India (The Puducherry collage enclosed) - we have loved it's warm welcoming people, the vitality of a rapidly developing society that is trying to meet the needs of the many now + major slum clearance programmes and fresh water to the villages, the magical scenery, the flavoursome plus plus food, the cold beer in some places and the ever-present spirituality of a proud people's Republic. Vive la Puducherry - vive l'India. Au revoir. Nous retournons 2018 pour Goa et Kerala.

"Hi Vippy, Thank you for arranging a wonderful tour for us. Both places we stayed- Kalmatia Sangam and Mary Budden Estate - were delightful. Kalmatia Sangam gave us a charming octagonal room with view of Himalayan snow covered peaks. The service and food were above par. Everyone who works there made sure to make us feel welcome and well cared for. We were also pampered at the Ayurveda Center with oil treatments which were included with our stay. We felt rejuvenated after our time there. After two days, we were driven to Binsar Sanctuary for three nights at Mary Budden Estate. Its a beautiful, luxury boutique hotel. Our bedroom was tastefully decorated. We were also given a living room AND a small dining area, so we had a whole house! Every night we had wood fires to warm us. The food was of the highest quality. Sheetal guided us on interesting hikes. The whole staff there was attentive to our needs, always with a smile and a cheery Namaste. Both places mentioned above provide memorable experiences. Thanks also for arranging the cars for us which were always on time. Latika and Simran Sethi from California (November 2016) "

"Hi Vippy “India was fascinating – so much contrast and colour it was hard to take it all in. Our tour was brilliantly organised by Vippy with well-informed guides and a skilful driver. We stayed in some wonderful hotels all carefully chosen for their location and service. Two weeks was hardly enough but we came home feeling we had experienced a great deal of this multi-faceted country with a good balance of time to relax and explore. We hope to return one day and if we do, we shall certainly use the excellent services of One World Discoveries again. We really did have an amazing time. Thank you! Barbara & Jeff (March 2016 ) "

"Dear Vippy, We'd like to thank you again for a wonderful trip to Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan. The tour was very well organised and excellent value for money. We were particularly impressed with how you managed to procure upgrades in some of the hotels - including suites at the Samode Palace and complimentary dinner at the Taj Lake Palace. We are happy to recommend One World Discoveries unreservedly. Best regards, Frank & Chris ( March 2016 ) "

"You will be our first choice for our next trip to your magical country Our trip to Rajasthan was a sensory safari of rich colours, amazing sounds, and wonderful wildlife coupled with amazing hospitality from everyone we met. We are still buzzing with it a month later - it has warmed our hearts and souls. Hopefully not long for us to have another injection of India's vitality and hope for a better future for all.

"Thanks to you for your care and organisation to make our holiday in India so special. Now we're back in the UK, Lyn and I wanted to register our thanks to you for your care and organisation to make our holiday in India so special. As a bespoke holiday, it couldn't have been beaten, either on price or on attention to detail. You provided a wonderful selection of hotels to our specification, the driver and the guides were excellent, and the advice on the best route, tours etc was spot on. However, what was really special was the personal touch. From the moment, we made the initial enquiry you have been available to discuss options, help with change of plans etc. As you know my mother passed away while I was on the holiday and you treated me and my wife as if we were your own relatives. We will not forget the way you went the extra mile to help, and I don't believe any company could have done more to assist us at this difficult time. Please feel free to use this email as a testimonial on your website as I know you aren't on Tripadvisor. We'll be coming to India again and there is only one person we'll come to for our holiday and that's you. Very best wishes Ashley Rowlands, Wimborne, England (8th Feb till 28th Feb 2015) "

"Good Journey! Dear Vippy, We had a good journey back and are very happy about our tour in Rajasthan (The hotel in Ranthambore was marvelous and we saw a tiger). Thanks again for your professionalism. Will certainly recommend your services to friends and family if the case arises. We also liked the fort of Chittorgarh very much. The driver did a great job. "
"Wonderful Holiday – Kerala! Dear Vippy and Anu, A huge thank you to you both for such meticulous planning for our recent trip to India. I can't thank you enough for organizing such a wonderful holiday. I loved all the hotels, and the houseboat was the icing on the cake. It was also great to have our own 'translators' with Sherry, Pam and Rita. I realize how much trouble you went to, and everything went to plan-even the flights all departed on time! It was such a nice change for me, as I always have to organize holidays, so to just turn up when everything is done, was fantastic. Thanks again, and I hope to meet you again soon when you next visit Sherry. Best Regards Luv Jan (Janet) UK "
