Testimonials

Team at EarthyHues doesn't leave's anything to chance. From explaining the tour, hotel facilities, the extra bits all the way until one departs Kenya, they are meticulous. They make certain that we knew what we were paying for and genuinely wanted us to have a great trip. I could see that the team member was calling the driver to be sure that we were being looked after and having fun. The itineraries planned for us were more than sufficient and good value for money. In addition to the travel planner, I must say that the guides are well behaved and very punctual. As a tourist you can decide to relax, it’s your prerogative but not the guides. They will go with your flow but at the same time make sure that you are reminded what you may miss. Very patient specially with noisy kids around. We were given all the prior information about weather forecast, clothes to carry, tips to be paid, where to stop and other do's and dont's. There’s also a pre-trip briefing that Bhavana does all the time. Through EH, we have traveled extensively with friends and family and always had a great time. Overall, I can strongly recommend anyone to EH. The experience is just Awesome.
