En agosto de 2017 tres amigos españoles hicimos un tour de 10 días por Rajastán con los servicios de "Make India Tours".
La experiencia fue muy positiva. La empresa nos sugirió una ruta adaptada a nuestra estancia, proporcionando vehículo con conductor y guías en los principales destinos.
EMPRESA: el dueño habla español, fue muy amable y se le veía muy interesado en saber en todo momento nuestra opinión sobre su servicio. Los vehículos eran buenos y con buena climatización. Tenía bonitos detalles como proporcionarnos todo el agua que necesitáramos. Los guías locales normalmente hablaban español y eran competentes.
CONDUCTOR (Ravi Banna): buena persona y eficiente conductor (muy hábil y rápido al volante, lo cual se agradece cuando tienes que desplazarte por la India), amable y muy interesado en agradar. No habla español pero su inglés es bastante fluido (aunque a veces nos costaba un poco entenderlo). Si lo necesitabas, te ofrecía sus contactos en cada ciudad ya fuera para cambiar dinero, alojamiento o restaurantes (aunque si estás dispuesto a caminar un rato o a buscar por internet a veces es posible encontrar mejores opciones). Nos instaba a que dejáramos por escrito nuestra opinión sobre sus servicios y los de su empresa.
En resumen, recomendamos sin duda esta empresa para viajar por la India.
In August 2017 three Spanish friends made a 10-day tour of Rajasthan with the services of "Make India Tours".
The experience was very positive. The company suggested a route adapted to our stay, providing a vehicle with driver and guides in the main destinations.
COMPANY: the owner speaks Spanish, he was very friendly, always available and very interested in knowing our feedback about his service. His vehicles are good and well air-conditioned. They had nice gestures such as providing all the cold water we needed. Regarding the local guides, they usually spoke Spanish and were fairly competent.
DRIVER (Ravi): good guy and efficient driver: very skillful and fast (quite appreciated for us in a country like India), very kind and always interested in pleasing (he even invited to have a tea at his home). He can't speak Spanish but his English is quite fluent (although sometimes it was a bit difficult to understand). If you needed it, he kindly offered his contacts in each city (i.e for changing money, accommodation or restaurants), although if you are willing to walk for a while or search the internet sometimes you might find better options. He often encouraged us to post a comment about him and his company's services.
To sum up, we definitely recommend this company to travel through India!

I wanted to warn possible travellers to Ametlla de Mar/Les Tres Cales en Costa Dorada to avoid at all cost MistralvillasFamily.com. They are a bunch of crooks that will come up with unbelievable claims to steal your deposit money.
They advertised the property as "Very High Standard" but when we arrived we found a really decrepit property, with lights broken, tiny old towels, terrible beds and bed linen, a murky pool, squeaky doors, Air Con in only 2 of the 6 bedrooms (they claim all bedrooms have AC, but 4 just have noisy fans trying to bring some air from the livingroom), massively underequiped kitchen (no frying pans, no tray in microwave, no tray in oven, malfunctioning oven & fridge.
We arrived on Sat evening and complained to get some basics fixed and the property manager hang up the phone and said she was not working until Monday - call back then!!!
The worst has been afterleaving the property the owner is keeping part of the deposit claiming costs of sending someone to clean the pool, oil the squeaky doors, fix a curtain rail that was broken before we got there, and some other similarly crazy things!!
Pass on the message to friends travelling to Ametlla de Mar/Les Tres Cales
The Central Highlands' city of Da Lat is one of my favourite holiday destinations in Viet Nam of Vietnam Tours. I have visited the city many times, yet every time I do so I'm always enchanted by the beauty of the landscape, the brilliance of the flowers that adorn the parks and hills and houses, and the crisp clear air that never fails to intoxicate.
First discovered by Swiss-French bacteriologist Alexandre John Emile Yersin in 1893, the city and its environs soon became the playground of the French who built villas in the clear mountain air to escape the heat and humidity of the coast and Sai Gon, now known as HCM City.
Da Lat looks like a cross between Viet Nam and the French Alps. The city spreads across a series of pine-covered hills, with a small lake in the centre and a manmade lake on the periphery. It is quite unlike the rest of Viet Nam. Temperatures are pleasantly warm by day, and quite cool at night, when it drops to about 100 C.
On this trip to Da Lat I chose to visit Lang Biang Plateau, and the village of local ethnic groups who live at the foot of the mountain range.
Taking the advice of a local taxi driver, I awoke early in order to reach Lang Biang Tourism Site and reach the summit by 7am when the morning fog wreaths the mountain before it disperses in the warmth of the day.
Evergreen pines trees, occupying some 971ha, cover the three mounts of Chu Yen Du (known locally as Mr Nhut Mount), Lang Biang (Lam Vien) and Bi Doup (or Ba Mount). All three mounts are over 2,000m high, the latter being the tallest at 2,287m above sea level.
Mai Ngoc Lam, who works at Lang Biang Tourism Site, which is 12km north of Da Lat centre, said that the more adventurous tourist can trek up the tree-lined tracks to get to the summit, while the less fit can take a jeep. He said trekking added to the experience because one could admire the natural environment close up.
"You will see a number of different species of pine tree, some very rare, with a trunk diameter of up to 4m and reaching a height of 20m," he said.
"You will also see wild orchids. There are about 300 species here," he added.
"If you are lucky, you might also see rare birds as well as a number of wild animals."
Feeling slightly guilty, I took a jeep to the summit, doubtful my lungs could cope with the climb. The journey by jeep is along a 6km road that zigzags through the forest to the summit.
The air was wonderfully fresh and perfumed with the scent of pine and wild plants. Streams cascaded down rock outcrops and birdsong permeated the air, which grew noticeable thinner as we climbed higher up the mountain.
When we reached the peak (where there is a coffee shop for the weary and a souvenir shop for tourists) I climbed out the jeep and followed the faint sound of distant voices to a flat viewing area.
On the peak, I was lost in reverie, aware only of the mist-clad scenery, the sky, the clouds, the wonderfully fresh air, which seemed to have a smell and taste that was quite alien to me. A few minutes later, a warm ray of sunlight pierced the clouds and the mist began to clear, revealing the magnificent scenery before me in all its glory. I could not help yelling with joy as the landscape unfolded before me. A yellow river, known as Suoi Vang (Golden Stream... Leer más ...
As one looks upon the virgin beauty of Ninh Van Bay it is hard to imagine it was once the site of fierce fighting during the American War. Le Ha reports.
My friends and I travelled to Ninh Van Bay on a glorious day. The morning was just dawning, the sunlight starting to wander on the sea. With the clouds drifting and bobbing. I was sitting on the car taking in the seascape before my eyes. The way to the bay is like the dress of a pretty girl who is lying on the sand and wallowing in the beauty of the sea. I was really eager to explore the bay, one of the most beautiful areas of Khanh Hoa Province.
Ninh Van Bay is located on Ninh Hoa District's Hon Heo Peninsula. It is about 60km from Nha Trang City, and it took us about 20 minutes to reach the bay by boat. The bay is famous for its natural beauty, with fabulous coral reefs, white sand beaches and an impressive mountain backdrop. Its natural charms have enticed many investors to build luxurious resorts, which help visitors escape from city life.
From far off, Ninh Van Bay has a quaint air about it. Small wooden houses line the beach, perched on rocks or hills that bring a sense of calm to the landscape.
However, this region of Ninh Hoa Town was the location of brutal fighting during the war. It was deemed the perfect place for a resistance base because of its rugged mountainous terrain, many reefs and narrow harbour passages.
Although few people know that Ninh Van Bay was a maritime base of the "Ho Chi Minh Trail" on the sea, local residents are proud of its history, which includes a fierce naval battle between liberation forces and US and Sai Gon ships and aircraft. An officer of the liberation navy, Nguyen Phan Vinh, captained a ship in the skirmish.
On March 1, 1968, Vinh's ship reached Hon Heo Peninsula to unload weapons and other supplies intended for Khanh Hoa's combatants, and came under attack suddenly by enemy ships. Instead of surrendering, Vinh ordered his crew to ready themselves for a fight. Ultimately, his vessel was destroyed along with 13 of the crew who sacrificed themselves for their mission.
Pham Thi Huong, a long-time resident of Ninh Hoa Town's Ninh Thuy Commune, says that a few days after the boat exploded, around 9,000 enemy soldiers were sent to mop up the area.
"We all avoided capture and found five survivors from the battle the next day," she recalls.
The image of Vinh's ship anchored in Ninh Van Bay still lingers in the minds of many local people. They are now fighting a new war against poverty and are determined to develop their town into a successful tourist destination.
You can see the evidence of their victory in the many tall buildings and spacious houses that differentiate Ninh Van from other coastal areas in Vietnam tours. Even as nearby as Van Phong Bay's Son Dung Island - one of Asia's most beautiful beaches about 20km from Ninh Hoa Town - the economic situation is demonstrably worse. There are only 30 people on that island, which offers another striking contrast with busy Ninh Van Bay.
Chair woman of Ninh Van Commune Tra Thi Bong Sen says that "in... Leer más ...

During the Vietnam war, tubeless reinforced bicycles moved tons of supplies over the Ho Chi Minh Trail, on jungle paths and over mountains, by passing the DMZ into South Vietnam. To staunch the flow, the US Air Force deployed massive bombardments, movement sensors, rain making and chemical concoctions that were ultimately unsuccessful. More information>>
