Dear Tappas Voyages,

We had a wonderful time. The service was always excellent.
We especially enjoyed the company of Simon at the Paradise, he took us around personally and was charming.

Best regards,

"I really enjoyed the hands-on experience of travelling with Liz in India and being welcomed into people's homes in the small rural villages, seeing their beautiful hand-work in action, and experiencing their day-to-day life.

"The accommodation was also a great experience from a tent in the desert to a spiritual palace on the Ganges. A really mind blowing experience to the senses; colour, wonderful tastes, and of course the loud honking of horns!

"Few tourists would ever have this experience."

Juliet Bain, Rotorua, 2016.



"Late in 2015 I went on a tour of India with Liz Light. I loved every minute of the trip; the things we saw and the places we went to. We travelled on our own bus, with driver and a local guide, at each destination. At no stage did I feel unsafe. The accommodation we stayed at was varied and fun and I have no hesitation in recommending both Liz and her tours."

Margaret Champion, Whitianga, 2015.



"Our Textile Tour of India with Liz, in 2015, was one of the best adventures I have had.
India is such an amazing country. The people are so humble and friendly, the colours vibrant, the palaces and old buildings completely magical and the food delicious. On the downside it is noisy, crowded (1.2 billion people), untidy and chaotic.

The main purpose of our visit was to study beautiful Indian textiles including silk weaving, intricate embroidery, block-printing and hand-woven carpets. The quality of these was breath-taking and it was all wonderfully researched by Liz.

Along the way we stayed in a variety of interesting accommodation including a tented community in the Banni desert and a 500-year-old former palace on the banks of the river Ganges. As well as textiles we visited ancient markets including the Spice Market in Delhi, bazaars, mosques and the famous Taj Mahal in Agra.

Thank you Liz for a wonderful adventure and one that I will never forget."
Denise Tremewan, Hawkes Bay, 2016



"I enjoyed every minute of this tour and it was about so much more than textiles.

I was a bit apprehensive about "India" and didn't know what to expect but the textiles were marvellous and so was the food, the scenery and buildings and the people. Visiting them in their villages and homes was such a privilege, as was learning about their culture and history. The interesting variety of hotels made a wonderful holiday. And even the toilets were good!

Liz, your advice to us about how to keep well and safe worked very well and I never felt nervous or vulnerable. Between you, our Indian guides, Devidas and Harry, and our navigators carefully assisting us off the bus, well, you gave us gave us a wonderful time. I am still on an India high."

Robyn Madden, Hawkes Bay, 2015



"I was a little apprehensive before departing for India but once my feet touched the ground, in Bhuj, I knew that I was going to thoroughly enjoy the tour. The colours were amazing, the people were charming; so friendly, and they all wanted to make sure we had a great time. I especially enjoyed visiting the villages and seeing their beautiful textiles. The local guides were great. Harry was exceptional; he was never stuck for an answer. I particularly liked the mix of accommodation and really enjoyed the tented camp in the desert. Altogether it is a very well planned itinerary I certainly want to return to India."

Libby Fletcher, Rotorua, 2016



"I did one of Liz's textile tours to India in 2015. I often think of Devidas, our lovely Indian guide, and how good he was to us. Meanwhile, back home, I admire my exquisite hand-crafted purchases and they bring back many happy India' memories. India certainly does get under your skin, well mine anyway!"

Sue Waterworth, Napier, 2015.
