Hi Kunal,
Sorry...but I meant to send you an email informing you of his questions and my positive responses but have been busy with work and things. Apologies. It was indeed my great pleasure to give positive references for you. You are and always will be a sincere friend. Please use me as a reference all the time when it is required. I am more than happy to help you.

How are the family? Have you taken your son to the Jewel of India recently? Great food!
I used one of the packet mixes from ... view more that spice shop you took me to last week and made the Tikka Chicken and cooked it outside on the BBQ. It was the best Tikka I have ever tasted. Authentic! My son thought it was superb! I have managed to find a UK supplier of the Mumbai company...thankfully! I really want to meet up with you again. Maybe in Mumbai or here in England. Kunal...may I just enforce upon you and your family that you have an "open invitation" to come and stop with us for a holiday whenever you wish.

Just say the word and it will be done! I would love to show you around this miserable cold, rainy country ha ha! It's not all bad!
Take care Kunal and best wishes to your wife and my little poet. India will win! They are the best in the world! Only the rain will stop them!

Kunal,

Under the circumstances of the short time frame and short notice to you, your tour service fulfilled my expectations. I appreciated your flexibility in providing several options for things to see and adapting to my wish to go for a bit of shopping. As for me the information you provided about the sights we saw was good for me, as well as the insights into various aspects of Indian culture.

As far as I was concerned the price was fair for what I was able to get out of the day. I ... view more realized going into it that traffic would be a factor, so no complaints there. Thanks for taking the time and doubly thanks for being available on such short notice.

Please let me know if you need anything else in terms of feedback, and I hope to see you again when I bring my family back to India.

Regards,
Ian Brown

 3  Marilyn and Marcus Melvin / Marilyn and Marcus Melvin review
This is to regretfully inform you that this supplier is TERRIBLE. He did not speak English well, he was dirty, as was the vehicle and he was unpleasant and uncooperative. In spite of all of our pre tour input he would not take us to the places we requested but rather took us to his friends and took payoffs right in front of us. It was a terrible experience and we would be surprised if you would continue to associate with this group, They are unreputable and unethical.

We have been on this trip for ... view more over 2 months and they are the first and only private tour that we have been unhappy with. He did not even make the effort to come into the port area to collect us or drop us off as all the other guides did. He was most unpleasant.

 4  Jean Ware / Verified User Review
Kunal was a good guide who was extremely prompt in replying to any email. His suggested itinerary allowed us to pick exactly what we wanted to see. The van he secured was new and wonderfully air-conditioned. His knowledge of Mumbai was adequate, although he faltered by saying that the old section of The Taj Hotel was not open. Normally, that would not be a big thing, but our traveling companion had stayed in the old section a number of years ago and was anxious to see it again.

The only drawback is ... view more his loss of some earing. He mentioned this to us, but it was a little annoying at times when we started to say something to him, and he went off on a tangent, disregarding what we had to say.

I'm afraid we corrupted him by taking him to the Hard Rock Cafe in Mumbai. Our daughter collects their shot glasses, so we all went to lunch there. Afterwards, he couldn't resist buying several items for his son!!

Cordially, Jean Ware

We were very satisfied with Kunal as our guide. He did a very good job of showing us all aspects of Mumbai. Since we are older and not as mobile as the young people he was sensitive to that and made it very enjoyable for us.

It was very good to be able to contact someone so far away before our trip so we were all set when we arrived

Sincerely,
Lois Glass

Yes. We are satisfied with the services. Mr. Kunal Banerjee is a good knowledgeable person.

 7  Dr Mark Gillman / Mr Kunal Banerjee
We had a very good experience with Mr Banerjee. He was polite, patient and very helpful. Although these characteristics are important in anybody working with people it is particularly valuable when someone is working with elderly people or with someone who has some physical handicap. We would therefore highly recommend him for anyone including older people that need extra assistance. He was prepared to go the extra mile for my wife and I, which was exceptional, because my wife had recently broken some toes and ... view more her mobility was severely compromised. He is also entirely trustworthy and reliable. The only negative comment we have is that we believe that for the price we paid (US$100), we should have been taken around in an air-conditioned cab. This probably would not be necessary in wintertime, but is essential in India’s summer heat. In all other respects we highly recommend Mr Banerjee for a day-tour of Mumbai and surrounding areas.

Fiona and I are very grateful to you for an excellent tour. We saw more than we expected to see and appreciate that you selected places that were of interest to us. Everything was accomplished within the very brief 7 hours we had available and within our budget. You are clearly one of those rare guides who knows his city and does not have any agenda to take your clients to any particular shops. On this point the Punjabi restaurant was excellent, thanks for taking us there for lunch. We wish you good fortune ... view more in your work and hope that we may meet you again. We are happy for you to share this email as a reference for prospective clients.
