Testimonials

I undertook the Treasures of Europe 9 days tour. Absolutely worth it. There were no flaws at all. Excellent Indian food and good hotels for accommodation. You will fall in love with Europe for sure visiting some of the exotic locations and significant landmarks. Ratan is an excellent tour manager. Mark drove the vehicle with utmost responsibility. I would recommend Star Tours to one and all. I am already looking forward to going again with them

Vidya Dixit

We are on a 14 Days Majestic Europe Tour with Disney and today completed the second day. I can't stop myself complementing Star Tours for the very well organised tour. It has been delightful, informative and very very professional. All the three meals a day have been of top quality. The guide Mr Khushro is very knowledgeable and taking care of everyone's individual needs and giving all sorts of advice and instructions to keep everybody safe. Well done Star Tours! I will again write my reviews at the end of the tour.

Harish Sachdeva

My husband and I went to Tokyo with star tours. It was one of the best Holiday we ever had. We met our tour guide at the airport who looked after us until we left Tokyo for London. The tour guide was polite, helpful, considerate and punctual. We couldn't have asked for a better guide. We would love to go back to Tokyo.

Mira Sharma

We are just finishing the 5 days PNER tour with Mr.Galib, our star driver and Mr.Shaji star entertainer who was way more than a guide. They were very professional, caring and I should say they hosted us across 5 countries spanning 5 days keeping to every commitment and going beyond call of duty at every possible opportunity. Mr. Shaji was key to creating a family atmosphere within the group. Mr. Galib's driving was awesome with no jerks, we could leave our 3 year old very safely in the coach and sleep. And about the food, can't ask for anything better. The variety, taste and quality of food was awesome and the menu carefully decided to bring in variety though provided by different restaurants. A very important aspect of a group tour is to maximise utilising available time. We didn't lose time waiting for others and the itinerary was planned and executed with great precision. Highly recommend!!

We went with Star Tours for the third time. Our relation with Star Tours is since 2010; we first went Holland and Belgium, then in 2013 to Paris and 2017 Swiss Express. They provide brilliant service - everything from the hotels, food, and tour managers. Tour Managers have excellent knowledge and tell us everything very clearly. They are accommodating, friendly and funloving. It has been a tremendous Swiss tour we will miss it. Hoping to continue our relationship with you.
