''Hi Desh, We all had a great time. Excellent job coordinating the winning team in Jordan. The person who came to receive and drop us at the airport got us through the immigration process smoothly without any delay. Hassan the tour guide in Jordan was excellent gave us a good prospective of the country and the history of Jordan and the region. I would recommend that you use this team for future guided tours in Jordan. I would like to thank you for picking the right team for our tour. Thank you''

''Hi Desh, I am more than pleased to make a few comments regarding our cricket tour to Sri Lanka. Never having been to Asia before I was not sure quite what to expect. In the relatively short time we were there it was difficult to form any lasting impressions. What I do know however is that the tour was very well organised and in John Lever and his wife Christine we had two very amiable and capable people looking after us. Paradise Vacations staff in Sri Lanka were most helpful and made sure our transport was always where it was supposed to be and at the right time. The Hotel (The Surf) in Bentota was excellent and being right on the beach made it even better. Shame we had a beach party at the end of our stay which went on well into the night. The distance from Bentota to Galle was close on 80 Kms which you would have to say was a long way morning and evening and the driving in Sri Lanka being what it is we were never short of excitement. We moved on to Colombo and our hotel was The Ramada right in the city. A very nice hotel although if one wanted to be critical maybe a little tired and in need of some TLC especially compared to the hotel next door where the England team were staying which was positively palacial. Our tickets for the second test were excellent having an air conditioned box just along from the ICC and Sri Lanka cricket presidents box. How Paradise Vacations pulled that one I do not know but it was much appreciated. All in all it was a very good trip and two good Test Matches to boot. Thanks to all of you at Paradise Vacations and I am more than happy to recommend your company to others.''

''Desh / Prabath, Just to tell you how much I enjoyed my trip to Sri Lanka, despite the England loss in the first test at Galle. The company was great fun (including the other 2) and John Lever and his wife, Chris, were fantastic hosts - relaxed and friendly and determined to make a success of the holiday. And I can't fault the arrangements as you went out of your way to get me there and back from Madrid, rather than London - the journey went smoothly (apart from the epileptic on the way back, but that's another story). Well done. If you are in touch with Mr & Mrs Lever could you ask them to read the British press carefully tomorrow (25 April); there is something in certain papers / websites that they helped me celebrate whilst in Sri Lanka!!!''

''Dear Desh We had a wonderful holiday in Sri Lanka and even saw a leopard in Yala! Everything went very smoothly. Our driver Lalinda was excellent and very helpful. We found the food throughout the tour very good and the people very friendly. Most of the hotels were excellent although we did have problems at Grand Hotel with the room. The first stank of cigarette smoke, the second was dirty and in very poor condition but the third was O.K. Our main disappointment was Tangerine Beach Hotel. Being Half-Board we were treated second-class guests. Because we were half board they did not provide bottled water in the room although all other guests were given it. When I explained that I had medication and inhalers to take twice a day we were given a jug of filtered water which we were told was for half board guests. I do think that bottled water should be provided for all guests especially in the hot climate of Sri Lanka. I sent a letter complaining of this on our first morning but this was never acknowledged. Just to make matters worse there was always a security guard on the door to the restaurant to stop you taking your bag into the restaurant so that half-board guests did not take any food out of the restaurant! You had to leave the bag with her until after the meal. Please do not think that this reflects on you. We were delighted with the holiday and appreciate that you arranged it at very short notice. We would certainly recommend your company and will definitely consider using you again. Thank you again''
