What our clients say about us
Good morning Rinki,
Emily and I are home now, and we would like to thank you for organising what turned out to be a wonderful trip. We enjoyed visiting all the various places, and the hotels were comfortable. People were very friendly and helpful. The pace of the trip was perfect, travelling but not exhausting.
The driver Chandra was very good and I would have no issue with recommending him as a driver. He was very polite, punctual, and courteous. We felt he was a very safe driver, and would like to extend our thanks to him as well.
With the benefit of hindsight, I would have stayed an extra day or two in Verkala rather than the extra days in Mumbai, but that is as I say with the benefit of hindsight.
Once again, thank you so very much for all your help in organising this trip for us, which we will remember fondly for many years to come.
David and Emily

Dear State Express,
To whom it may concern, we are writing you regarding the package booked with andanitravel for the India golden triangle from the 01/03/2020 to the 11/03/2020.
On the 4th of March ’20 the staff from the Sher Gary Resort in Road Village Sherpur, Khilchipur, Rajasthan 322001, Ranthanbore, following the Advise from the Government of Rajasthan, invited us to leave the resort and the State of India as soon as possible due to our Italian Nationality.
Immediately we contacted the DCM Italy of Rajasthan, Mr Carini, who told us there was a mistake and the Advise number 27 of the 4th of March 2020 was withdrawn with immediate effect.
Although we informed on a timely manner the resort staff, we have been asked to leave anyhow.
Only after the DCM Italy informed the resort about the mistake, we have been given the opportunity to leave the resort the following morning.
All these difficulties, the constant hostility by the people in India despite the advise number 28, the decision made by the State Express emergency contact( Harish Bhatt) to interrupt our trip and the news regarding the spread of COVID-19 in India, induced us to arrange autonomously for a flight back home as soon as possible.
At least but not last we kindly ask you to let us know of any official way to provide a positive feedback to the great support, empathy, help, kindness, professionalism, flexibility and special assistant given by the driver Mr Ashok Yadav in the sphere of his competences.

Dear Mr Chandra,
On my return home, I would like to express my satisfaction with the services I received from Tour state express, particularly as regards accommodating my forced changes in plans. I must also add a particular note of satisfaction with my driver, who drew on his experience, flexibility and patience to make my trip as exciting and interesting as possible.
Indeed, I hope the next opportunity to go back to India come soon and if this is the case I would be very happy to call on you again. In this respect I am thinking about a tour of Orissa, starting from and returning to Kolkata.
Does your company cover that area too?
Thanks again for the quality of your services. All the very best.

Dear Rinki Bakshi,
Many thanks for your kind mail, and the message from our driver Raju.
First of all my wife Gitte and I wish to thank all of you at State Express for making our Indian Holiday an unforgettable experience, with an extra big thank you to Raju for making our stay extra special with his constant personal attention far beyond expectation throughout our entire stay – a true ambassador for your Company.
We shall be recommending your Company as being an outstanding service minded Company in all aspects.
Also we wish to thank you for your concern regarding our Health during our stay.
The first 3 weeks went like a dream without any upsets, but unfortunately we both cought an unpleasant BUG the last week of our stay, which caused some discomfort, especially during the very long return flight, persisting a good week after our return home, but are now fully recovered.
We also wish to thank you for your speedy assistance in arranging our return flights to Delhi and for the farewell present (box of candles) handed to us at the airport at our departure, which is much appreciated.
With our very best wishes to you all from:
Hans & Gitte Damgaard Christensen

Namaste Mr. Harish Bhatt,
Il tour sta procedendo molto bene, molto bravo e professionale il driver, molto brava e gentile la guida locale, straordinario Ranjeet.
Con mia moglie abbiamo fatto sette tour nel Sud Est Asiatico e questa è la seconda volte che veniamo in India, non abbiamo mai avuto problemi ma questo tour è davvero eccezionale.
Gli alberghi vanno bene, rispondono alle nostre aspettative e anche il mangiare va bene.
Solo a Mangalajodi le condizioni igieniche fanno pietà ma lo sapevamo e sapevamo anche che per andare a visitare il lago Chilika non era possibile fare diversamente.

Dear staff of state express,
this is Yunheng writing to you in Bengaluru airport. we really enjoyed our trip. thanks so much. the driver is really helpful, competent, skillful, kind-hearted, knowledgeable and with great hospitality.
I did like the whole journey very much. hope to see you soon.
the driver just told us that he should collect the report from me. but I didn’t find that. I wonder if it’s in a envelope or something. if it can be done online or through e-document, do let me know and tell the driver that he need not worry about it please. he is really a very nice and responsible person.

Sharat Chandra and the rest at State Express, I am safely back home in Malaysia after a 5 day trip to India. The trip was made pleasant by the wonderful services provided by all of you. You have promptly and continuously kept me informed of the transport arrangements until the day I reached New Delhi. My sincere appreciation for the great effort and hard work on your part.
The driver was excellent and I have no negative comments about his work. The vehicle provided is in good working condition and was clean. I look upon using your transport service again on my next trip to New Delhi. I will also recommend your services to my friends and relatives if they are going to New Delhi for a visit.

I would give you our positive feedbacks about our trip in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Hotels were clean and comfortable, our driver Babu was really great, very reliable, nice and well educated! All guides were professional, excepted for that of Trivandrum, not very skilled and shallow.
I suggest you to include the visit to AUROVILLE in the program, because it is really a magic and very interesting place to see (we did it). Our next trip could be Ladakh, from the extreme south to the far north, so could you please let us know the right period (from June to August) with festival or nice events to see?
Thank you again for your assistance, looking forward to hearing from you,

We are back to China. Thank you so much for helping us all the time. This is our third time to rent a car by State Express, and it is always a fantastic experience to travel with State Express.
Thank Mr.Sanjay (the driver) for providing a good service and we enjoyed all the way.
Miss India all the time and we look forward to the next trip to India.

Dear Rishi and State Express,
Thank you very much for your wonderful arrangement for our India travel! We , our group of eight, had a really good experience in India and we are all very impressed. Thank you and Sanjeev for what you have done for us in the early plan time and always kind suggestions.
I would like you, Rishi, contacting through email and arranging everything well. Especially, you picked us up in Delhi airport despite the much earlier the flight arrived at night, you had already waiting in the entrance for us on time. and also, you were listening to my report of tour so seriously and attentive. you moved us a lot.
I have to say your company had already provided us a good experience in India from the first day of the representative and the first drive are very polite and patient and honest and pleasant. The guides are warm and knowledgable though our limited English. The hotels are wonderful except the Bissau Palace which is not very comfortable for its facilities are not so good. Anywhere, that is also another kind experience of heritage culture, so frow this view, it is also good.
I couldn’t have been more pleasure with the experience you provided and i would recommend you and your company to anyone who wants to visit India in future.
Many thanks again!

Dear Mr Sharat Chandra,
We have returned to Shanghai. This email is sent with many thanks for the excellent service that we received from your company, during our tour of the Golden Triangle from 1.1.19 to 7.1.19. We have been very impressed with the prompt and well organized attitude of your staff.
Furthermore, our driver, Mr Satish Malik, was an excellent, confident and safe driver and also a very good guide. He made our tour most enjoyable for us. His genuine concern for our well being at all times and his attention to the tight schedule that we imposed on him, was most impressive and endearing to us. He was attentive to our wishes and requests at all times.
Mr Malik’s knowledge of the area was invaluable to us and he went far and beyond to make our tour most enjoyable. We wish to thank him too, for his excellent service. We started the tour as strangers but ended it as friends! I will not hesitate to contact you for future tours, as we have been very happy with the service that we have received. I have been recommending you to all my friends, family and colleagues in my office and will continue to direct them to your company.
with kind regards, thanks and good wishes

We had a great time because of Sonu throughout our 9 days in northern India. He kept the car clean everyday and was always well turned out, which is something I appreciate. He was so polite,had a great mood, he had full attention, great advice, excellent driving skills. We felt safe with him and we enjoyed his demeanor which was always positive and jovial. Sonu knew all the roads and gave us great advice where to stop for breaks and rest which was very helpful. My daughter and son in law experienced something that they will never get in the US.
All in all he is a good man. Please make sure he is well compensated for his service. I would like you to share this email with him too. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. Additionally we were pretty much comfortable in the car……..though I did have to jump in the back and sit sideways.

We did a tour with Soles4Souls and State Express in January. I can’t fault my experience and time. It wasn’t the usual tour for guides Rishi and Ajay from State Express and driver Bunty, as we were going into schools giving out shoes as well as visiting the tourist attractions but they embraced the experience as much as we did. They looked after us from the beginning to the end and went out of their way to make our trip memorable and enjoyable. Nothing was too much trouble, they even managed to get us tickets to the republic day parade what an experience! I felt relaxed knowing I was taken very good care of during the trip. Ajay and Rishi were very knowledgeable about the different attractions we visited and could answer the MANY questions we all had. They are both wonderful people and made our trip so much more enjoyable and fun. Our drivers helped us feel at ease as we were taken from Delhi, to Agra then to Jaipur and to all the schools and attractions. I would thoroughly recommend using a State Express for any visits to India.
Ms.Roz Innes, United Kingdom
The trip we did with Soles4Souls Travel organized by State Express was a wonderful experience on all levels. The trip ran extremely smoothly with transportation, activities, lodging and meals all being in place without a hitch. The best part was the distribution of shoes which is what we came to do. The joy on the faces of those who received shoes alone made the trip a success, but the exposure we got to the places and culture of India, which we were all seeing for the first time, as expertly provided by our tour guides, was a wonderful bonus.
Mr. Bill Hafker, Washington DC
Kumbh Mela Allahabad February 2019. Very well organised. We were picked up from our b& b in Varanasi and driven to Allahabad where we stayed for three days. Our accommodation at the camp site was perfect. The staff very helpful. The food was good. Our guide (Baldev) for the ceremony on 10th February was excellent. He looked after us extremely well and we felt very safe with him. At the end of our trip we were driven back to Varanasi, Both drivers were good and on time and got us to our destinations without any problems despite the traffic.
A wonderful and unique experience all round. So glad to have been able to have the opportunity to visit this fascinating country and for such a special occasion.
Ms. Jennifer Allen, Italy
Beautiful experience for the past 4 years, I have been using State express for all my trips to India with my friends.
Rishi has never failed me with the itinerary. Very reliable and competent. Approachable anytime with quick response. Trustworthy company; last year during the road trip my sister accidentally left behind her scarf; Rishi found it for us and returned it back the following year when we visited in India. He even offered to post it to our country.
Thank you to Rishi’s team for always making sure the visitors to India are well taken care and feel secured.
Dr Kalai Selvi Tanggaveloo, Australia
We enjoy our North India trip by State Express. We are eight person group came to North India from 10th to 21th Feb.

Because of the excellent service of State Express we enjoy our north india trip. May be we will come again to see south India next time.

Will definitely recommend Your company and use it whenever I’m back in India.
Thanks & Best Wishes

We are back in New York after a fantastic trip to India. Just wanted to let you know that I was extremely pleased with everything from State Express. The bus and the luxury van were exactly what we were looking for and the drivers were all excellent. Everyone was always on time and kept it all so easy and relaxed for us.
I am recommending your company to anyone who needs car, van or bus services while in India.

Dear Mr. Chandra,
Thank You Very Much for Your Help for Hour Journey in Bihar. We Were Very Happy for All, Driver Very Professional, Kind and Able.
India Always Very Interesting.
I am forwarding this from David. Once again you surpassed expectations! Babu and I are just returned from a three week road trip through the deep south and visiting my native place New Orleans…..what a colorfuland fun city and the food rivals that in India! Hope all is well with you and family.
We write you this email to thank you very much for the perfect organization of our great trip in India.
We were very positively impressed by our driver Omgar, who daily took care about us in a very kind way.
For sure we will suggest your company to our friends that will visit India in future.
Stefano and Alessandra
As you may remember we recently hired a car and driver from your company for 10 days (19th December – 28th December) to do a tour of Delhi, Agra, Ranthambore, and Jaipur.
We as a family feel that we must write to you to compliment you on a very professional service. We would particularly like to draw your attention to our driver Mr.Dharmender who provided us with a most, most excellent service. He was courteous, happy, punctual, nothing was too much trouble for him and above all he is an excellent driver.
We would have no problem recommending your company to anyone who may be visiting India, and again wish to thank you for helping to make our first visit to India a happy and successful experience; please pass on our kind regards to Mr.Dharmander and wish him well for the New Year
First of all an apology because I have been a little busy since we come back home from our trip to India. Everything was perfect and the driver and his assistant were very nice, helpful and professional. For that reason we want to thank you and we hope that in my next trip to India we will meet again.
Best wishes for all of you and your families.
Several years ago, a friend of my and I hired the services of State Express in Delhi to take us around the Golden Triangle and we were very pleased with your services. I have also recommended your company to several friends who have gone to India during the past couple of years and have used the services of State Express.
This November, I will be returning to India with my cousin and I am again very interested in hiring the services of your company.
Good morning Mamlesh,
I write you this email to thank you for your assistance during our Rajastan tour.
We had a great time and enjoied the atmosphere of India. Mr. Tara is an excellent driver, nice, always smiling, helpful. I hope that other groups from Viaggi nel Mondo will have the chance to meet him. The van had some problems, they didn’t disturb us very much, thanks to the promptness of Mr. Tara who arranged the taxis.
Regarding Hotels, I want to thank you for the changing in Udaipur, it was really worth it. The Hotel in Jaipur is nice outside and in the living rooms and restaurant, has the perfect location. Maybe we have been pampered by the staff of all the other hotels in our tour!
Form me and all my group, thank you again.
- Sono Gigliola Fabrini. Siamo tornati martedì 26 u.s. da una splendido viaggio nell’India del Sud. Grazie per l’organizzazione, per la competente e amabile guida che ci ha fatto scoprire una muova India, al bravo e solerte autista, agli ottimi alberghi e alla corrispondente agenzia di Nuova Delhi che più volte ci ha contattato per sapere come procedeva il tour. Siamo stati anche fortunati per il clima nonostante l’agosto porti i monsoni …….. Grazie di tutto
Now that I’m back to Paris (18° and rain), I would like to give you my feedback over my recent trip in India (as I have told Sanjeev over the phone). As I have already said many times, the driver and the car were really very good; Rajesh is really competent and pleasant; I think that his presence has made the journey much more agreeable
The hotel in Aurangabad (the Keys) was very very good; and the manager also allowed me to get into my room at 5.30 in the morning, without further charge; I really appreciated that the hotel in Bijapur (Madhuvan) was NOT good: the rooms and the bathrooms were very dirty, lots of cockroaches, not a real shower available; I know that we have discussed about that before leaving, and that you have suggested to go straight to Badami; I just want to let you know that we have seen new hotels in Bijapur, maybe not finished yet, but maybe they could represent a good alternative in the future on the contrary, the restaurant of the Manduhavan hotel was one of the best we have found overall I’m very satisfied about the state express service as my sister and her family will probably come to India next Christmas, I will ask her to get in touch with you.
if she does, I hope you will provide her with Rajesh and with good prices!
thank you again for all
All the best
Thank you for organising a very exciting and wonderful tour in Bhutan. It was a thrilling experience and we enjoyed every minute. Attached is the tour report.
