Marcus at Millis Potter is very knowledgable regards their destinations has intimate and valuable knowledge. He was very enthusiastic & put together an amazing 3+ week trip touring Rajasthan in March 2018, listening to what we thought we wanted & providing several options both terms of price and luxury and suggesting numerous experiences to truly understand the culture and lovely people. We booked with just over a month to departure (our normal last-minute decisions) and our trip truly delivered ALL & MORE that was briefed and suggested by Millis Potter.
All the details were worked out & visas arranged for us at the outset. All the tours & experiences were amazing and the guides all arranged by Marcus and the TEAM were fantastic.
Even when things went a bit belly up for a few days (our fault not hotels) the next stop hotels and transport were rescheduled and rearranged by local managers who looked after us really well and Marcus thoughtfully called just to double check to see if we needed anything else.
Thanks very much, Millis Potter & Team :)) Great Service, Great Trip, we will definitely book with you again.
Testimonials & Millis Potter Reviews
THANKS SO MUCH for everything Marcus! We owe you a drink or ten to catch up about it all. We had the most brilliant time and loved it all!
Colin and I were discussing the trip last night and saying how lucky that we did find you at the very last minute. I just wanted to say a big thank you for putting together such a good taste of India, in such a short time We had a great flight on Jet Airways and it was fabulous to be met at the door of the plane and whisked through the airport and driven to the hotel. Everyone has been extremely professional and helpful. I appreciated your reading list and was pleased to realise I had actually read a few of them, but will tackle a few more when I return. Have just got back from a breathtaking dawn visit to the Taj, which took our breath away, despite having seen it from many angles yesterday. We really appreciated the visit to Kachhpura, to see what life is really like for so many. We had an excellent tour guide and our driver magically always secures a spot right near our exits or entrances. We got upgraded to a suite at the Oberoi, which was great. Your advice about hotels in Agra was spot on. In Delhi, we had a good walk around the Nicholson cemetery and I found that, and the Skinner church and cemetery, very moving and a reminder of the human cost of our empire building. You certainly more than achieved your aim of giving us a taste of India, we learnt and saw a great deal in a very short time. So thanks so much for all your help and arrangements, which worked so well.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for organising a wonderful holiday for us. Everything was spot on and we have had a fabulous time. Hoping to plan a return trip to the region and see more of Nepal some time! Thanks once again,
We got back on Thursday night, and had the most fabulous holiday. All the hotels we stayed in were absolutely wonderful – Purity and the Aanavilasam Plantation House were just shear luxury closely follwed by the Marari Beach Resort and The Old Habour in Fort Kochi. We really enjoyed the Lakes & Lagoon Houseboat and had a terrific thunderstorm which made the trip really interesting and the Talayer Tea Plantation was a real experience and the food we were cooked there was really good. Adrian and our driver Shaiju were very attentive and incredibly helpful throughout our holiday. All the guides provided by them were great. We will definitely be returning to India for our next holiday!
We wanted to spend a few minutes of our time to write and email to you and your extended team in the UK and Bhutan. We have tremendously enjoyed our 8 nights here and the highlight “wow” hotel was the very kind upgrade you gave us to the Gangtey lodge. This was an amazing experience!!!The team you have in situe with Rishi, Legden and Doedgey are extremely efficient and professional. The background work for our trip and the special surprises were very well timed and executed. And indeed add the extra difference to our wonderful visit.A few words on Legden, our guide, as we not only found him to be polite, punctual and professional but instilled with a national pride and courtesy that we do not find very often in the modern world. 10 out of 10!We close this short email with a final word of gratitude for our unforgettable experience and the holidays of our dreams which you made happen for us.Thank you so much.
Safely back after a really fantastic trip. All your arrangements worked really well. Dollar, the driver, was specially wonderful and the hotels in Jaipur, Shahpura and Udaipur were brilliant; in each one the owner/manager took a real and oft repeated interest in our welfare which we really appreciated. We enjoyed our special dinner at the Dhikhola Fort.
I was a little wary of booking a small tour operator but my worries were soon put to rest. Marcus compiled the most fantastic trip for us in Sri Lanka tweaking things and listening carefully to our wants and must haves! The boutique hotels that he has access to are amazing and of the highest quality.The guides he uses take you to places you would never hear about or be able to access for yourself.For the 2nd part of the trip Marcus booked the amazing Lux resort in The Maldives and I mean amazing. I had a clear vision of what I expected from The Maldives and Lux not only met it but far surpassed it.Our trip to Sri Lanka and The Maldives for my 50th year was fabulous and I cannot thank Marcus enough for all the time and effort that was put in to making it such a truly wonderful memory!”
Got back safely yesterday from our tour so ably organised by you. Every meet, greet and transfer went like clockwork and was handled perfectly.The Oberoi was a welcome and comfortable break on both occasions and the Rajbari was magical. Our Calcutta guide was superb and her day with us was a high point.Overall we enjoyed the Hoogly cruise more than the Bramaputra. This was mainly because of our preconceived ideas about the Bramaputra landscape and nothing to do with the excursions or boat crew.So, thank you Marcus for arranging such a memorable holiday for us.
So, we’re back and I’d like to thank you so much for organising a really brilliant trip which worked like clockwork. Loved the Andamans, so like Thailand 30 years ago and also loved Pondicherry and Chennai all for different reasons. What was wonderful was that all five hotels were fantastic and all totally different. Thank you so very much and, oh yes, I also must mention that everyone in India, especially Ramesh, our driver, couldn’t have been more helpful and kind.
