Mr. (confidential) had a wonderful time, cannot wait to go back to India. This has been on his bucket list for years, so this was a highlight for them. Sandra equally enjoyed, just have not connected with her yet

Told me Creative was Above & Beyond all the way. They LOVED their hotels, these were the top 3 in this order:

• Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur
• Aman-i-KhasRathambore
• Oberoi Amarvilas

and they LOVED The Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai as well.

Thank you, thank you all for your impressive efforts in ensuring a trip of a lifetime for these gracious guests. Now we know that we have at least another trip we can plan for them, and hopefully they will spread the good news to their friends.

Kind regards, and will share any other update once I speak with Mrs. Chartrand
