    The palace-to-palace journey was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, filled with magnificent horses and exceptional hospitality. Ajeet proved to be an extraordinary guide, ensuring every detail was flawlessly orchestrated alongside Caroline. I cherished the enchanting heritage hotels and the delightful farmstay. The horses received impeccable care, and Ajeet's enthusiasm for his Marwari horses was infectious, making riding them an absolute delight. This journey was a vibrant tapestry of color, exhilarating rides, and rich history, offering a glimpse into the authentic India. If I could, I would give it even more stars.

    This trip was the highlight of my life. The horses were top-notch, and the route was absolutely stunning. Traveling solo, I felt well looked after from the moment I arrived in India. Dr. Ajeet's expertise made the experience truly unique, taking us through the forested National Park, dry river beds, deserts, farmlands, and rural villages - all home to breathtaking sights and encounters with local wildlife, including leopards. The horses brought joy everywhere we went. Accommodations were fantastic, offering both authenticity and luxury, while the food was simply delicious. I highly recommend this trip to anyone, and I'm more than happy to share my experience with anyone who may have doubts.
