It is always lovely to receive an award or accolade in any walk of life but when it is customers and peers who vote for you then there is an extra pleasure. In October 2013 we were excited to learn that we had won ‘Best Small Holiday Company to Southern Asia’ at the British Travel Awards ceremony . For many years the BTA organisation has acted as ‘arbiter of public opinion on travel industry performance’ and this award is recognised as the ‘Benchmark of Excellence’.
Yasin Zargar, MD of Indus Experiences and originally from Kashmir, said, “We are absolutely delighted to win this very special award and would like to thank everyone who voted for us. We all work very hard to provide tours that are truly memorable and our customers come back year after year. At the heart of our family-run business is a genuine commitment to friendly, helpful service linked to luxury travel with innovative itineraries and superb accommodation.”
The Indus team of professional advisers have a vast experience of the countries we specialise in, including India, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. Tour Manager Rajeev Manral was brought up in the foothills of the Himalayas and really enjoys creating itineries that inspire our guests to explore the hidden treasures of these countries. Sri Lankan Shawn Hendricks is constantly searching out new experiences to tempt people to visit different places.
Amit Dhoj Kadhka was born in Khatmandu and is passionate about the outdoors and splendid scenery that feature in all our destinations. Asiya Zargar says, “My interest in travel naturally stemmed from my father’s passion for travel and I joined the company straight after university. One of my favourite trips was to a plantation on Sri Lanka where I learn all about the tea production process from picking to packing.
However wonderful it is to have won this award, it is our guests who make it all worthwhile, so we finish with this testimonial from Denise Oakman, who sent this after her holiday to Vietnam and Cambodia.
“Everything went perfectly from start to finish. We were met everytime, never had to wait and any problems were dealt with efficiently and quickly. We would have no hesitation in using Indus again and would be happy to assure any other prospective private tour customers that it is definitely the perfect way to travel.”
