    Undeniably a wonderful and charming trip to black forest Germany and Switzerland. (28th Oct – 31st Oct 2017)
    Loved the itinerary Skanda Team(Madhu) had arranged and certainly it was delivered perfectly.
    Meet all my expectations, so many things covered in one single trip. I would highly recommend Skanda travels.
    I wish good luck to Madhu & Team. You are doing great job. Looking forward for many more trips with Skanda travels.

    Overall I would say I would like to give 10/10 to Skanda travles.

    My In-laws traveled with skanda travels on 19th to 23th Sept 2016 in the SWISS trip. As they came from India and wanted visit SWIZERLAND during their stay, i found Skanda travels as convenient and economical option(provided swiss is slightly costly trip) .
    But once they completed the trip i must say Skanda travels is not only convenient and economical but the best trip available for Indian parents wanting to visit swiss.
    Because they get indian food, indian music in the bus, indian families to socialize that is difficult to get anywhere. Also Madhu is extremely polite, soft spoken and very organized person that makes the trip highly memorable.

    Thanks alot madhu looking forward to join you sometime in future.

    For all the people who have planned for Switzerland trip at the last moment please opt for Skanda Travels with no second thought. The trip is well planned and atmost care is taken to ensure all the items in itinerary are covered comfortably and with leisure. The trip is decently priced and saves allot of effort which you would spend otherwise in planning your trip.
    Please book the dinners with skanda as the food is of good quality and served hot (unlimited!!!). You will be all charged up the next day.

    Lastly kudos to Skanda team. You are doing great job. Your love towards what you do is evident in your action. Madhu, you are inspiring and have wonderful team to work with. Looking forward for many more trips with you.

    It was indeed a nice trip to Switzerland and scenic drive from black forest Germany :):)
    Loved the itinerary of Swiss, so many things covered in one single trip :):)

    One can definitely go for such trip. Excellent Indian food you get during the trip. At Mount Titlis, one can never imagine that u will dhoklas, pav bhaji, gajar ka halwa :):) Liked the arrangements done by skanda team for the dinner during the return journey.
    Hotel choices are really good.
    Indeed the trip is value for money considering the rates in Switzerland.

    Only suggestion is, to consider smaller groups. This way one bonds very well with the group.

    Our (Myself and my Husband) much awaited vaccation in Switzerland came true on 22nd Oct, 2015 through Skanda Travels.

    To begin with, virtual family atmosphere was created amongst all the people in the bus.(Through intro, antakshari, dumcharades, puzzles, etc) Also, to keep people entertained, bollywood songs and movies were played in the bus.

    Being a good professional, Mr.Madhu kept upto all the promises made in the website and we highly appreciate his energy, punctuality and enthusiasm. Every minute details were looked after well, according to each individual’s needs. All the must see places were covered and guided very well. Not to forget, the delicious Indian food (both North Indian and South Indian style) arranged on most of the days.

    Finally, In short, well planned and executed trip. Hope Skanda Travels increases the number of European Tours and we would be glad to join whenever possible.

    Thank you Mr.Madhu and All the Best to Skanda Travels πŸ™‚

    Myself and my husband were in Eindhoven for a short stay of one month. This was our first visit to Europe and we wanted to travel to Switzerland. Luckily we came to know about Skanda travels through internet and saw that there was a Swiss trip planned in the month of Sept 24 – 27, 2015. Even though we booked our seats a bit late Madhu was very kind and accommodated us in the trip. The trip was really very well organized. The Indian food at all the places was very tasty. We enjoyed the trip.

    Thank you Madhu for such a wonderful and memorable trip. Anyone who is traveling with Madhu can be at peace of mind and enjoy the scenic beauty throughout the journey and does not have to bother about anything like vegetarian food, accommodation, sightseeing/must see places etc. All this is possible only because of Madhu’s enthusiasm, zeal, and passion towards his work.

    We highly recommend choosing Skanda travels for any trips in Europe and hope Madhu will extend it to other countries as well. πŸ™‚

    We wish all All the Very Best to Skanda Travels and a Very Bright and Prosperous Future!!

    Dear Skanda Travels Team, Thank you very much for a wonderful trip to Black Forest and Switzerland on 22nd May 2015. I think what makes you different is the personal touch and superb management skills. Madhu who is the architect of the trip and William who connected so well with us Indians, both of them are inspirational and are following their passion. This fact makes the real difference since it is seen in their efforts to keep everyone happy and well informed during the whole trip!!… Congrats and Cya some time again… πŸ™‚

    This is the second time we chose the Swiss trip by Skanda travels and this time it was for our family. All of us in the family have enjoyed this trip from an age group varying from 6 to 60. Organization by Madhu and the guidance from Willam is what makes this trip a memorable experience and anything said about them is less. They set you at comfort with all arrangements such that you are left free to enjoy the travel and the scenic beauty of every attraction. Cheers Madhu and Team!

    I can’t say enough good things about our tour leader (Madhu) and bus driver (Willem).The service was exemplary. Be it from the stay at hotels, the food, the carefully chosen attractions to visit and even the recreation activities during Travel…everything was simply wonderful. I wouldn’t have any 2nd thoughts about recommending Skanda tours for any of the trips they arrange. The tour was very carefully planned.

    Thanks Madhu …for being a wonderful tour leader and am eager to travel with you again to new destinations.

    What a trip it was!!! I’ll remember for my life..No matter if u r in group, in family or travelling alone , I assure u’ll enjoy every bit of it..
    It is impossible to have so many places covered in the amount of time , if you are travelling alone…
    Kudos to Madhu, who constantly kept the crowd engaged with some or other fun activities, movies etc during the trip… Being charged up is OK but making people around the same is not easy.. πŸ˜€

    Location: Switzerland and Black forest(what else you want :D)- 2 most beasutiful places of the world
    Noise: Interestingly enough – quiet.
    Service: Enough already said for Madhu in previous column, for more advertisement, will ask Madhu to give 50 euro waiver in next πŸ˜›
    Price: In Swiss terms – cheap.
    Value: Excellent

    A must recommended travel group for Indians !!!

    This was my second trip to Switzerland and what I found that this one is more convenient, memorable and with magnificent views.
    Best part of trip was Madhu’s planning where you don’t have to wait for any location for your turn.
    One more thing I traveled with my parent and they enjoyed it as well.

    Finally I must say if you are planning a trip for Switzerland Go with Skanda Travels.

    People usually say it’s better to travel alone and not in groups. I beg to differ slightly, if you have a lovely group (as was ours) and if things were so well arranged for you to lean back and enjoy without worrying about things like food, itinerary, travel, then I would always prefer to do it this way. Thanks to Madhu for arranging such an awesome Swiss trip, so good that for a micro second I even think of going on the same tour again next month πŸ˜€ From the luxurious hotel stays to a highly passionate and knowledgable driver, from the well thought out itinerary to the brilliantly handled food requests, I have only good things to say about Madhu’s trips… I am waiting for Madhu to start the next Luxemborg, Germany trips, to be part of it…
