A fabulous experience in a magical landscape

Review for a India River Cruise on MV Mahabaahu

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

This 7-day cruise was part of a 3-week India experience and definitely one of the highlights. Our group of 19 arrived at Jorhat airport and was transferred by vehicles to the ship at Neamati Ghat. Cruising through the vast expanse of the Brahmaputra was wonderful, and I particularly enjoyed the emphasis on nature and wildlife. The safaris by boat, elephant and jeep through the Kaziranga ...

Brahmaputra Reflections of a Wonderful Trip

Review for a India River Cruise on MV Mahabaahu

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose this cruise as a way to unwind after a trip across Nepal and Bhutan and this was a superlative way to enjoy river life, meet the villagers and see the wildlife of Kaziranga National Park in comfort and style. The courtesy and professionalism of this experienced crew gave us a memorable trip. The team was led by Neena an experienced, welcoming and truly professional cruise director and ...

A dream tour

Review for a India River Cruise on Ganges Voyager II

Golfnut cruiser
6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

We are from the UK and saw a TV programme hosted by a well known cruise ship singer-cum-TV presenter, Jane McDonald. It looked like a fabulous trip so we rang the tour operator (Global River Cruising) and asked to book the same suite we'd seen in the TV programme. Two years later we set off to New Delhi. The tour spends the first 5 nights seeing New Delhi, Agra and Jaipur and staying in superb ...

“ Appalling “ and dishonest treatment by Pandaw

Review for a Asia Cruise on Katha Pandaw

Mark JC
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We travelled to Kolkata on 10 October , looking forward to Pandaw’s inaugural 14 day cruise up the Ganges to Varanasi. Late in the afternoon of 11 October ( the day before departure ) we were told that the cruise was not going to take place . We later found out that the stated reason , namely a closed lock at Farraka , had been known to Pandaw since 4 October ( at the latest ) . Pandaw ...

Pandaw Problems in India

Review for a Asia River Cruise on Katha Pandaw

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We have travelled extensively on ocean and river over the last 20 years and have, with the exception of our October Pandaw India trip, always enjoyed our adventures. On two occasions plans went astray but we were adequately compensated. This is the first time I have voiced my dissatisfaction in a public forum and I have endeavoured to report the issues as accurately as possible. We arrived in ...

Disastrous 14 day inaugural river cruise on Upper Ganges, Kolkata to Varanasi

Review for a Asia River Cruise on Katha Pandaw

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

My wife and I have thoroughly enjoyed 3 prior river cruises with Pandaw, Mekong, Irra waddy and Red river/Halong bay, plus optional Pandaw land tours. On 12th October all that credibility crumbled to dust and blew away. Whilst in transit from Delhi to Kolkata afternoon of the 11th we received an email from Brett Lemish, Indian area manager of Pandaw, advising due to flooding our 14 day river ...

The Ganges Voyager: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Review for a Asia Cruise on Ganges Voyager

10+ Cruises • Age 2020s

The good: The ship was pleasant and comfortable and we enjoyed being able to visit the small towns and villages along the Ganges. There is a large sun deck in the rear that is a comfortable place to sit and watch the scenery. Our room had a large floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door and screen, which turned the entire room into a balcony when weather permitted. The staff was just great and took ...

Buyer Beware

Review for a Middle East Cruise on Ganges Voyager

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

BUYER BEWARE! On my very recent trip, I found that Vantage’s EXOTIC INDIA, NEPAL & THE SACRID GANGES RIVER TOUR to be anything but exotic. These are the things you can expect: On the advertised 4 day, pre-tour Nepal supplement, you will spend the better part of 2 days just traveling from Delhi to the hotel in Kathmandu and return to Delhi. Once there, due to an earthquake in 2015 and the ...
