Enjoyed the Women’s Special tour to Andaman. All women were looked after very well by the tour manager. Dheeraj was very prompt in his duties, specially wake-up calls. Later he became a part of our family. Havelock stay, food everything was very good. Only in Port Blair, if the hotel would have included fruits for breakfast would have been good for senior citizens. Special thanks to Veena Mam for organizing activities for Women to exhibit their talents n boost their confidence. Enjoyed the trip.

I really had a gala time over my Andaman tour with Veena World. Previously also I had very nice experiences on my Himachal tour with you. At that time in my feedback form I had mentioned that your tour managers were very competent and excellent in behaviour. In this tour also I realized that your tour manager Dheeraj Choudhari is no less than others, rather I can vouch safe that he is really a very good manager who excelled in his hospitability. He was very helping in nature. Thanks for organizing such tours

I was getting regular updates on SMS - "Your loved ones will be visiting... XYZ today" that was really helpful in tracking up things & Having the overall idea of the trip. This is excellent initiative -- CHEERS for that ! To mention specially as heard from my parents - Mr. Santosh Dhamane was very much helpful in handling the things there and he was trying to help as much as he can for all the group members - His positive attitude and friendly talk made them feel like being in the family itself. Considering this appreciation, I Myself planning to have a honeymoon tour may be for KASHMIR/SIMLA Manali with VEENA WORLD next time. Wish you all - a very happy and successful journey ahead.

It was a pleasant experience of travelling with Veena World. Previously I used to travel individually. However during Dec'2013 when I was at Sentosa Island Singapore, I met Veena World group & then I decided to travel with Veena World. Being a Ratnagirian, your PSP Shree Travels it became easy to plan the trip. During entire trip outstanding hospitality was experienced. Group leader Subodh Jadhav took so many efforts to make the trip memorable. Last but not least thanx to your PSP Shree Holidays for so many efforts they took to make our trip successful.
Thax once again. Keep it up!

Madhura Joshi ANEX 16 February 2015

My parents traveled with you recently on the Andaman tour. Visiting Veer Sawarkar Smarak in Andaman was one of their dreams. I must say that because of you their dream was fulfilled in a wonderful way. The tour arrangement was very nice and they really loved it. Special thanks to Subodh. He did an excellent job as a tour leader. He was very caring and attentive throughout the tour. I think without people like him, tour could not have been so nice to my parents. (They both are heart and high BP patients). Subodh, thank you once again ! Finally, I am happy that I trusted Veena World for their safe journey and money was well spent. Hope they can visit many destinations with your team in future.

Madhuwanti Joshi ANEX 10 February 2015

Thanks for the detailed planning and execution of our Andaman Tour on the eve of our 25th Marriage Anniversary. All the credit goes to your team for a memorable tour arranged by you. Except not so good food at Blue Bird Resort ,though Le Meridian and German Bakery at Havelock, other arrangements were too good .At Havelock many of the drivers indulge in rash driving and we had to tell to your travel associate agent there. We did enjoy the ambiance and stay at Neil Island at Pearl Park. Our suggestion in such tour, one need to be given an option to increase the stay at Neil island by cutting down leisure stay at Havlock because Neil island is too good full of lush greenery.
Candle dinner for our Marriage Anniversary day on 4th Feb , at Water Sports complex ,Port Blair at ocean Blue was indeed memorable ,great venue, Great Environment around and nice food and services.Thanks.

We are pleased to congratulate you for managing, maintaining and improving the high standards in your new venture - "Veena World. This was our first trip through Veena World. We wish to appreciate the efforts taken by Subodh Jadhav as tour manager, who had planned and executed the tour exceedingly well. He is very well trained and had exemplary behaviour. His local contacts are good and he has changed plans suitably to show the group maximum possible sites. He has excelled in group activities and has good voice for party songs and joyfully conducted the group games. This group was lucky to have weather gods to their side and did not have to face any adverse weather though you had provided the ponchos for any possible rains . We wish to inform you that we would love to go with Veena World again and expect the same experience for full enjoyment and lifelong wonderful memories of the places visited and new acquaintances.

My feedback about the tour experience –
1. Secure, family atmosphere.

2.Tour manager Harshal Pansare was very good at time management, polite and courteous.

3. Airport rep Mr. Mandar showed no enthusiasm or acknowledgement to the guests.

4. Food ok can still include variety in menu.

5. During the games prizes should cater to cosmopolitan crowd not only Marathi books which i got in last tour 2 Marathi books.

6 During cellular jail visit we can include 2 min SILENCE as respect to VEER SAVARKARJI AND OUR MARTYRS.

7. Dress code to be precise mentioning water levels during journey like three -fourth and synthetic preferred for drying.

For that we give credit to the tour manager and above all to your entire team for meticulous planning and training given to tour manager to take care of all persons and their all requirements.

A BIG THANK YOU for organizing our Andaman tour through efficient handling by tour manager Harshal Pansare. Keep it up!

Dr.Aditi S.Kamath & Subhash Kamath ANEX 10 January 2015

We want to tell you how much we appreciate the endless hours of service and dedication given to us by our tour leader Harshal Pansare during our vacation to Andaman this year. He made our holiday memorable especially with his kindness and never to say ‘no’ attitude even though the weather conditions were not very supportive. Such employees are great assets to your company and because of such employees it makes us feel that we should travel time and again with Veena World. This is a very exciting time in this industry with an opportunity to make a difference in the market place. Keep up the good work.

My Andaman tour experience was amazing. Also the tour guide was very friendly, informative and enthusiastic. He has inspired us to go for the next tours with only Veena World.
Sneha Dhekane ANEX 23112014

My wife Sunita and I are above 80 years of age. Since past 10-12 years we have been regularly going on your world tours. But now with age-related issues we find it difficult to gather the courage to go on foreign tours, hence we decided to opt for domestic tours. We went on Andaman tour from 15th Oct to 22nd Oct with your newly formed organization ‘Veena World’.
We were to depart on 15th Oct.2013 from Mumbai airport. Our Tour Manager Yogesh Nichite was with us in the same flight which was really reassuring and gave us a sense of security which lasted till the end. Our experience was so heartening that now we feel we should demand for Yogesh to be our tour manager on all our future tours. But of course I am sure that all your tour managers would be equally efficient and warm.
On reaching Port Blair, I was very much happy with the living quarters assigned to us at “Rose Valley Resort” which were very comfortable and plush with all the modern amenities. The one thing that I really admired on this tour was that the meals were arranged at the same place where we were staying. It really saved us unnecessary efforts and we could freshen up every time before meals. The meals provided were excellent and we could take some rest afterwards.
The highlight of the tour was tea/coffee/coconut water provided at evenings. Usually the tour cost includes breakfast, lunch and dinner but we are thankful for this newly started ‘Veena World Treat’ which is really refreshing and very much needed. I hope you continue with this custom.
Along with Andaman the stay and programs planned on Neil and Havelock Islands were equally engrossing and memorable. Our Tango Eco Resort on Neil Island was small yet beautiful. Here we had a campfire and played Antakshari. It was an exciting experience for youngsters and elders alike who participated with enthusiasm.
Our stay on Havelock Island at Symphony Palms Resort was wonderful. This capacious resort had a hall where our tour manager Yogesh gathered us all and conducted various competitions and games. Veena World gifted books to the winners of these competitions. The books were very wisely chosen. On the eve of 20th Oct. the winners were presented with these books by my hand.
This tour was really a success story for me and my fellow tourists. It would be etched on our memories for a long time. Our tour manager Yogesh Nichite is the reason why this tour was such a huge success. With a blend of enthusiasm and calm, he looked after all us guests. As for me, he was a great help as I was very sick during Havelock to Andaman boat ride. He really took good care of me and looked after my diet all through the tour.
Now it’s time for a suggestion. For an elderly person like me it is very much necessary to have an extra aide on board. Hence I would suggest that you please provide an assistant with your tour manager which would be a great help in case of any mishaps. If needed increase the tour price but a manager and his assistant are a must.
Veena Tai, you are experienced, courageous and innovative and I am sure your new venture ‘Veena World’ would soar great heights under your able leadership.
I wish you success!

M.S. Ajgaonkar

We just came back from Andaman tour. We were 34 people altogether. As usual, the tour was a grand success. I was to specially thank the tour manager Subodh who single handedly managed the group in an excellent way. Some changes in the itinerary were forced due to some unforeseen reasons but Subodh executed the changes beautifully. He was always enthusuastic, laughing and caring. Many members of this group have decided to book another tour with Subodh for a different sector. Thank you for a wonderful tour.

Mesmerizing Andaman A brief travelogue from our Andaman visit with Veena World. Serene, pristine, tranquil, scenic- words fall short of describing the Andaman Islands. These offshoots of yesteryear\’s volcanic activity located faraway from Indian mainland are a perfect example of ecological diversity and alluring beauty in our own backyard. Cellular Jail – a location, infamous for the tyranny of the British rulers, branded as “Kalapaani” for the pain and torture meted out, in reality is a place to witness the heavy price paid for freedom and pay homage to the martyrs. If Cellular Jail was the highlight of Port Blair, then the journey to Baratang for mud volcanoes and limestone caves was equally exciting as it took us through the protected Jarawa tribal area and we were lucky enough to sight them during our return journey. Ocean water showcasing a vivid spectrum of Blue and non-stop ever gushing winds greeted us at Neil Island. Havelock presented us with majestic sunrise and sunsets and wonderful beaches like Radhanagar. We thoroughly enjoyed the boat journey to elephant beach, glass bottom boat ride, snorkeling, banana boat ride but the most memorable was the Scuba diving experience, surrounded by corals and fishes. This was my very first group tour, though I have traveled extensively across India and abroad for work and leisure. After weighing the pros and cons of travelling in groups, finally we decided to lay our trust with Veena World to explore the Andamans. And I am delighted that Veena World team has lived up to our expectations and provided us with a great experience throughout our 6N7D tour. Pre-tour processing and in-tour interactions with the Veena World team were highly memorable and worth recommending. Especially the efforts of our ever smiling and cooperative tour manager turned friend Yogesh Nichite are highly commendable. Four of us – my parents, wife and I, weren\’t part of the I-fly program from Mumbai which meant we met our tour group of 28 other individuals and the tour manager only at our first pit stop at Port Blair. Onwards we commenced on a journey which not only showcased the glimpses of Andamans, but also introduced us to interesting personalities and new friends. The hotels were located on truly awesome locations especially at Neil and Havelock islands. The food and hospitality of these hotels was quite impressive. The tour was very well planned giving us enough time for leisure and rest and at the same time allowing us sufficient time to cover all the major tourist attractions. The overall arrangements were perfect and going forward, we wish to continue our association with Veena World.
