"Thanks to Antonella & Bhola for organising our trip to Kerala this year. It was my first time in India & I have to say it lived up to all my expectations & more . From the beautiful colours & aromas , the fabulous food & new friends I met . We had beautiful family run hotels & stayed in quaint cottages by the sea. Yoga at sunrise & a swim in the sea afterwards. I experienced my first moped ride twice on the trip & also had great craic in the Tuc Tuck. We experienced Kerala’s famous backwaters in an overnight houseboat which I even got to steer. Kerala is famous for it’s Ayurvedic treatments , which of course I had to experience, lots of .They were truly heavenly Indian girls that did our treatments & I will miss them. It’s already on my Manifestation board for Christmas 2018."

Thanks again and am looking forward to the next one! “

“This trip to India had so many highlights and moving experiences, particularly the ceremonies at the Ganges and Haridwar. I would like to thank Bhola for being so supportive to my dietary needs and to my fellow travellers for the non-stop entertainment. According to the astrologer, there is plenty of oil still left in my lamp, so see you in Kerala!  “

By Irene & Shirley – Himalaya & Rajasthan Trip April 2016 

"We got a good feeling from the first time we spoke to Bhola and Antonella about our special trip, and we were not wrong. Our 25 day trip couldn’t have been better planned and the balance between travel, sightseeing, relaxing was just perfect…. Not to forget the wonderful Chitta, our driver, guide and new friend in India. He knew when to let us do our own thing and when to help out. All in all, we know that our special trip just wouldn’t have been so special without all of you….. Thanks so much for the trip of a lifetime!"

By Michael - NY in Kerala 2015

"The best is yet to come – washing elephants and going to a tiger reserve.

Thank you Bhola & Antonella for organising a wonderful holiday"

By Theresa - Spiritual Trip – October 2015 

"Dear Bhola, The dust has settled on my return to Ireland after our amazing Indian adventure. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel towards you and all of your efforts to show me a true and authentic insight into the golden land of India, filled with depth, character and immeasurable spirit. I set no expectations of what the journey to India would entail but the whole experience was so much more than I could have ever imagined or anticipated. If someone wants a five star Indian holiday they can make a reservation through many agencies, however, if someone wants a true, five star Indian experience they will find their way to you and Antonella. India is not Ireland, and that is exactly why I wanted to experience the country through the eyes of a native person. Thank you for taking us to all of the different places, each with their own personality and offering. My eyes were opened up to the simplicities of life and what we really need to be content within ourselves. The bus journeys were a time for me to reflect and observe; paying attention to the sights that were unfolding and ever changing. All of my senses and emotions were stimulated. Perspective was put on life and living with a sense of appreciation for the journey that I have been on. May your next spiritual tour to India bring you the gift of new people who too want to enjoy all that you bring to the table in the form of a truly memorable authentic Indian experience. Mile Buiochas arís"

"We have had an amazing holiday. We liked everything about it – food, people and places. It was our first trip to India and definitely won’t be our last! Thanks you Bhola & Antonella"

By Sandra – Christmas in Kerala 2014

"This is my first time travelling and going to India, on my own. How brave I feel, but on arrival at Delhi what a shock but a lovely guide Paul gave us an amazing journey in the North – the Golden Triangle. Awesome! The one word to describe my journey in India is “Phenomenal”. It really has to actually be seen to be believed. Thank you Antonella & Bhola for an amazing journey in India. The peace and tranquillity, the beauty will live with me forerver. My love and blessings I give to you both to a beautiful unbelievable couple. With all my love"

By Marie – October 2014

"Many Thanks for providing my first spiritual trip to India. The spiritual trip was indeed spiritual in practice and in content. The most memorable moments were probably seeing the sunrise on the Ganges and the Hindu songs in the Sikh prayers at the Golden Temple and bathing in the Ganges. The size of the group and the different personalities participating enriched the spirituality in an unique way. Hopefully what you have given to us, we may pass on to others and in providing our holiday, you may reach your dreams."

By Naimh – October 2014

"Thanks to Bhola, Tridev and Satish for a most memorable journey through Northern India. I will never forget the ceremonies on the banks of the Ganges, the celebration of the full moon, the women at the well while we meditated on the banks of the river; Amritsar and the Golden Temple, the food kitchens and the visit to the Dalai Lama monastery at the foothills of the Himalayas, and the wonderful camaraderie of the group."

By Charlie & Soon-ie – October 2014

"A most memorable and fascinating two weeks trip, full of great interests, which gave us an opportunity to at last experience India and to see whether all the rumors, reports and stereotypes were actually based on reality. India (or at least the small piece of this great sub-continent which we have seen) is full of colours, noise, chaotic traffic, very friendly people. It is overwhelming, many people everywhere, apparent lack of any enforcement of regulations for living together in comfort. This crazy traffic with even tempered drivers, pedestrians and bike riders in the cities. Beautiful countryside, lush with wonderful plants and trees strange to Western eyes, and houses everywhere in many different styles and designs. Also an unforgettable group, a tireless driver, and our patient and always cheerful Bhola. Thank You"

By Michelle & Niall – October 2014

"To Bhola & Antonella – Thank you for the nice time and wonderful group, we have really enjoyed everything and great experience. We wish you the very best for the future and to fulfill your dreams."

"To India, much joy and sadness at the beauty of the world. Thank you so much for your part in my delight!"

By Jenny – October 2014

"This was my first time in India and I was travelling alone. I wanted to find a guide who would bring me around India in a safe and enjoyable way. Bhola and his brother have been our guides for the last two weeks and it has been an enjoyable way to discover India. The advantage of going with a group is, it makes things stress free. The hotels are booked for and the transport is organised – which makes it very easy to relax and enjoy the sites you are being shown. India is a beautiful Country and I am looking forward to the next 20 days I have booked by myself. Thank you Bhola & Tridev!"

By Sue & Carl – Spiritual Trip September 2014

"We would like to thank Bhola & Antonella for the enjoyable

experience we had in India."

By Geraldine - Rajasthan October 2013 

"I am speaking on behalf of myself and my two friends Stephanie and Lucy We had a wonderful trip around India late Sept / Oct 2013 thanks to Ethic Travels and Bhola who organised the trip for the three of us. On our arrival at Delhi airport, coming from Kerala, we met up with our wonderful driver Cittaranjan who escorted us to our hotel .He was as much the highlight of our trip as well the beautiful places we visited .He was very knowledgeable on the local history of everyplace we visited as well as on the history of India itself We never had a dull moment in the car with him He was the nearest thing to an Irish Paddy you could ever meet – warm , kindhearted, chatty and great fun. As we spent many hours in the car with him one can say he halved our journey If we go to India again we will definitely make contact with him.Some of our best memories were attending the Arati by the Ganges around dusk, an early morning meditation by the Ganges, our visit to the Taj Mahal at dawn, visiting the Sadguru fabric shop in Jaipur, Amristar the Golden Temple, Pushkar by the lake and Rajasthan. Many thanks again Bhola and Chitta for your wonderful service An experience not to be missed"

 By Brigid – Christmas in Kerala 2013

"Thank you Antonella and Bhola for the wonderful holiday you promised – and delivered. The jewel in the crown was your own physical presence. There were opportunities to learn / brush up on Indian cuisine when we dined together. There were many highlights which I have cherished. Our private audience with the saffron-robed swami and martial arts warrior; meeting Amma who was “at home”, the long procession of the shirtless worshippers in the magnificent granite temple at Kanyakumari, the backwater cruise on the houseboat. Thank you Antonella & Bhola also for bringing us all together to make up the lovely dynamic of our group"

By Jennifer – Christmas in Kerala 2013

"What a wonderful trip! I felt like I have been away for ages. We saw so much and visited so many wonderful places in Kerala. A brilliant experience, one that I will remember forever!"

By Nora – Christmas in Kerala, 2013

"The trip to Kerala is a lot different than the trip in Norh India. Beaches, back waters, house-boat, enjoying meals, temple and ashram visits, shopping, sightseeing – all while travelling on our a/c bus with our driver! Have you ever thought about going to India? Check out EthicTravels.com and have a trip of a lifetime! Bhola & Antonella will arrange every detail to ensure a great trip. It’s not a dream, it’s INDIA!"

By Agné – Christmas in Kerala 2013 

"I met the most amazing people on this trip and the evening stories were

fascinating. The places we visited were very nice and interesting.

The weather was just perfect, very happy! I look forward to the next trip …."

By Mary, Ireland – Spiritual Trip 2013

"Bhola was a great guide and our driver was also very obliging – both were always concerned about our well-being. The Taj Mahal was wonderful and I loved the chaos of Amritsar and the peace of the Golden Temple. The border crossing was great fun and very memorable. Dharmshala was a very special place. The hotels were wonderful and the service was very good. My best memory will be of not just the wonderful places we saw but of the great fun we had and the comraderie we developed as a group."

By Phil, Ireland – Spiritual Trip 2013

"What will stay with me forever is the smiling faces of the Indian people. No matter what their circumstances there was a natural willingness to be friendly. We here in the west could learn a lot from these people. I would like to thank Bhola and Antonella for our wonderful trip to India. Every last detail was worked out to perfection. Our driver was such a wonderful person and at no time did I ever feel unsafe even though the traffic has to be seen to be believed. Bhola was a wonderful guide and great fun and in his own words “everything is possible in incredible India”!

By Fiona – Spiritual Trip 2013

By Ellen, USA - Rajasthan October 2010

"I booked a trip to India through Antonella & Bhola and I couldn’t be happier! I was a bit apprehensive about travelling on my own in India but it never felt that way as I knew I had their support behind me and a caring and conscientious driver looking after me all the way. Their suggestions also helped me to maximize my time and have a lot of fun, too! Can never thank you both enough!"


By Elodie & Carole, France – November 2010

"I travelled to Rajasthan in February 2010 and I had the best experience and personal attention I ever experienced. I sure hope to come back very soon"

 By Bine, Austria - 2009

I must say thank you very much for the arrangement of this very good trip to the North of India. It was an unforgettable holiday for me!

 By Michelle Darden: In 2006 I traveled with Bhola on the Golden Triangle tour with my husband and two young children, and he made our stay in India stress-free! He was so kind to our children; we trusted him with them and he tailored our tour to our small budget. We saw places we would never have seen if we’d been on our own, or following our guidebook, and tried foods on the steet without getting ill. We still talk about our trip to India and remember our adventure, and our driver, with great memories!

 By Steve USA: I once traveled with Bhola in 2004, and it was one of my best trip… Bhola, you’re still my friend, I will never forget you. Wish you all the best…

 By Steve&Murielle Switzerland: We travelled with Bhola in 2003 across Rajasthan… This trip was a hit. So many laughes with you my friend !! We will never forget this trip and our friendship will never die. We Wish you all the best, Bhola. Take care. Love, Steve&Murielle
