"Dear Ram, My apologies for not responding sooner.I have been working at Sydney University helping out with exams the week immediately following our return. Well our trip again was most successful thanks to you & your colleagues, Mr. Kumar of Divine Voyages & those folk of Purity in Assam. Everything went to plan, always someone there to greet us at airports,punctual & obliging.Our drivers Vikram & Dilip were excellent & given Indian driving conditions (far different as you know from conditions here) we survived.Our guides in the various locations were well versed & always keen to provide us with a good service. We can now understand why the visit to Assam had to be put back after seeing the flood levels at Kaziranga this year after the wet season. Our accommodation in the modern hotels in Delhi & Guwahati was exceptional & the nights at the old palaces in Jaipur & Jodhpur were great. The Varanasi Hindustan was average but it grew on us. In Assam , Manas & Nameri we liked very much, particularly the staff at Bansbari Lodge. The disappointment came with Infinity Resort where the facilities were poor (we had no hot water until they installed a new hot water unit-which they did promptly) , light fittings had no shades, the thatched roof of one of the rooms had a tarpaulin over it,food was very average likewise the service but all in all we enjoyed the experience of the elephant & jeep safaris.A wonderful & scenic part of the world. People cannot here in Australia cannot quite grasp the fact that this is our fifth visit, but we have doing a good sell job for Incredible India. We know Marty & Jill share our thoughts as do Narelle & Murray from their previous visit. Finally Jet Air provided a good service,mostly on time with good aircraft & staff. Singapore Airlines did their usual great service but Silkair were light on in service & space in small aircraft. That's about as brief a summary we can offer. Again thanks for your expertise & please pass on our congratulations as you see fit. Regards Edna,Kel ( Jill & Marty)"
