Guest Experiences
I along with other tour members completed a very enjoyable and exciting tour of Leh Ladakh Kargil Srinagar. All through the journey we had very good accommodations and hospitalities. Our tour manager Harshal and his able supporting hand, the charming Sahil Patil were just too good to give us the needed support at those remote locations away from home. They were like brothers to youngsters and as if able sons to we senior persons. Anything said will be less for them the way they took our care. I pray almighty a for a very happy and healthy life ahead for them. God bless them for the hospitality spirit they are having. I certainly would love to be in a trip in future with them. As a suggestion, I would request VW to add neck collar in the list of items mentioned by them in the preparatory mails, this will be very much useful for the type of road on which we had travelled after uncertain landslides.
Pradeep Bhattacharya LHDL 14 August 2015

First and foremost, many thanks to all in your team for giving us one more memorable vacation. Our second tour with VW team after Andaman and the experience keeps getting better. The whole experience started pre-tour with the booking process itself through multiple phone consultations and in-person meetings with sales advisors Apeksha Parab and Snehal Umredkar (Kandivli/Borivli VW office), seeking inputs from tour managers Harshal Pansare and Yogesh Nichite prior to the tour, online payment process, complimentary bags etc going all the way till the delivery of snack kit at the airport by Mandar Joshi.

Kashmir and Ladakh as we all know is very unpredictable with ever changing weather conditions to the uncertain political and social scenario. Add to it, our tour was commencing on the 14th Aug with our Independence Day being the very next day and we were supposed to be in Srinagar on both the days. Given the security implications, our on ground tour management team of Harshal Pansare and Sahil Patil took special cognizance of this and made arrangements accordingly. This meant that we embarked on our sightseeing the very day we landed on 14th Aug with a Shikara ride in Dal Lake and thereafter completing the three scheduled sightseeing points in Srinagar early in the 1st half of 15th Aug so as to exit the Srinagar city limits by 11.30am . To our pleasant surprise, there was a welcome modification in the itinerary wherein we would now be spending only 1 night in Srinagar as opposed to 2 in the original itinerary and spend the other night instead at the beautiful Sonamarg. This was a very calculated and well-planned decision taken by Harshal and team which gave us an opportunity to a fantastic time at Sonamarg away from the tension filled atmosphere of Srinagar. This truly was a remarkable start to the tour and that set the ball rolling for the days to come. Similarly later in the tour, one such decision was later to leave for Nubra Valley earlier than planned in the itinerary to accommodate for the hotel and weather situations. The VW team showed good planning and flawless execution all throughout.

In terms of accommodation arrangements and facilities provided, all the hotels we stayed in were really good, recommendable and upto the mark. The travel arrangements were also commendable, considering the scenarios where cars from Srinagar were allowed only till Sonamarg, ones from Kargil were only allowed from Sonamarg to Alchi etc. All the vehicles were in prime condition ably driven by experienced drivers. Food arrangements were equally good with varied options both local and traditional being served wherever possible. Planning of the overall itinerary was good giving us time to rest, free time to exploring the places, as well as covering all the sightseeing locations in the end. Though I have a few suggestions which I will duly cover later in the sections below.

However, the most imp component of any guided tour - the tour managers, is the area that we are most satisfied about. The extensive experience of Harshal Pansare reflected from last 11-12 years of operating in the Kashmir Ladakh sector meant he was always in control of the situation and took decisions keeping the best interests of the group in mind. He was ably supported by the ever enthusiastic Sahil Patil who between both of them showed great camaraderie and managed the whole tour very well. Being a high altitude travel situation, they were perfect in their guidelines and instructions, very well managing the expectations and conditions of all senior citizens in the group all the while creating a pleasant atmosphere throughout. Needless to say, we got 2 more friends added to our friend list. At the end of the tour, even a few group members acknowledged Harshal and Sahil’s contribution to keep the spirits high and encouraging of some members who feared the after-effects of high altitude travel. Tundup Nolock, our local guide from Explore Himalayas was equally fun to be with and knowledgeable about the locations in Ladakh. I would also like to appreciate all the members of the group who came from various backgrounds, locations, with existing medical conditions, across various age groups and yet were very accommodating and fun to be with. All of us tackled the high altitude travel very well and hence could thoroughly enjoy the 10 day tour including the sudden flight cancellation by GoAir on our return leg from Delhi-Mumbai. I have also shared a few suggestions with your team which I feel could make the tour more enriching.

The trip of Leh Ladakh was really awesome. The most memorable and unforgettable trip. Enjoyed a lot. Initially it was very difficult to get adjusted to such a climate and a place where the oxygen level is too low. But the tour managers Kaustubh and Upendra were really co-operative and treated us like a family. I went with my friends and really wished my family was present at the trip. The camp fire, group games, get together was a great fun. The food was also good. This was my first trip with Veena World. It was really adventurous. Looking forward for such adventurous trips in the future!!!
Veena World Rocks!!!
Yashashree Thanekar LHHL 14 August 2015
My husband Sanjay and I had gone on your Leh Ladhakh tour a few days back.The tour is an adventurous type and by the grace of God, and all your efficient tour leaders and guides we had an awesome trip.We noted that the tour Managers and guides - Sagar Mhatre, Sachinanand Pawar and Nurboo buk buk take lots of care of their customers. They are polite and also very understanding, especially when it comes to climbing up to places for sightseeing. I think i must mention here that, my husband and I were very apprehensive about visiting the Pangong lake due to my Asthmatic conditions .We requested Sagar to be in our car with the oxygen cylinder and he relented without a fuss. We were lucky that we did not need to use it and neither did anyone else in the tour. But it was a great solace to have him with us in the car. When a fellow passenger fell sick and required to be hospitalized the duties of handling the remaining tour and the patient were taken care of with ease (so it seemed to us) .Travelling through the mountains, visiting Kargil Memorial, Hall of Fame in Leh, the military placed at strategic points and seeing the Road builders on the way, was really an eye opener for the hardships that all these people endure, for us to enjoy life. Truly words cannot suffice to thank them.Similarly the efforts of the tour managers to try and ensure that all the sightseeing points are covered is also commendable.The best hotels we stayed at were in Sonmarg, Leh nd .Numbra Valley. Just a minor suggestion if it were possible please ask them to install fans/pedestal fans where possible. Sometimes its not possible to open windows and the effect of heat and low oxygen itself is tiring. The successful completion of the tour is a very important landmark in our lives. We were tired but enjoyed.This was our second trip with Veena World and we look forward to many more in India and abroad.
Anita Modak LHDL 07 August 2015
Leh Ladhak trip was a unique experience. Tour manager Harshal Pansare and Sahil both were cooperative and caring. Both were always ready to help. In all critical situations they could maintain their mental balance. They organised good games, antakshari . Food was good. Time management excellent. I see good future for Veena World.
Ranjana Deshmukh LHDL 26 July 2015
My mother, Dr. Pramodini Borkar and I just completed your Leh Ladakh tour. Our tour managers were Kaustubh Junnarkar and Upendra Sawant. The tour was very well organized and the tour managers made sure we had everything for our comfort. Everyone was especially happy with the food provided on tour, at Hotel Leh Chen, Leh. The tent stay in Apple Cottage, Nubra valley was a fantastic experience and truly one of it's kind. In spite of the difficult terrain, most of us completed the tour without any major problems, and only a couple of tour members felt the brunt of the oxygen scarcity in at high altitudes. All the drivers were experienced and very good at their jobs. This tour was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience, and I am extremely glad my mother decided to book the tour with you. The tour couldn't have been a success without the meticulous planning from your end and the scrupulous attention shown to us all by the two tour managers, Kaustubh and Upendra. Thanks to Veena World, we have made new friends and seen the landscapes of Leh Ladakh to make memories lasting us a lifetime. Our family is extremely happy with Veena World, and we will certainly recommend it to everyone we know. Keep up the good work.
Dr. Poulami Borkar LHHL 14 August 2015
We are in the age group of 70 plus. We were assured by your team go ahead with the Leh Ladakh tour without fear and assured us that we will be taken care by the Tour Managers. Our experience of Leh Ladakh tour was wonderful. Asawari of Ghatkopar office was very helpful in booking the tour and the day to day coordination. The guest relation officers Mandar Joshi and Mandar Shastari were very helpful. Our tour Manager Amit Kene and Jigar Vora took care of us in all respect. Hotel Snow land was the best n comfortable for stay Dining n relaxation. Vehicle provided for site seeing were best with skilled Driver tour guide Tundup.Sight visit to Pangong lake n Nubra Valley was excellent n well planned. Local visit to Pather Sahib Gurudawara. Sindhu river. Monasteries n other sites were v well-coordinated. Go Air flight was v good in time n comfortable. It was a dream come true visit n all was possible because of Veena World n able staff u have chosen. Ladakh folk songs n dance in the evening were superb.

Usha & Ram Saini LHHL 09 August 2015
I was part of the Leh- Ladakh tour this year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our tour representatives Amit and Jigar for the wonderful trip. Though we were stuck in Nubra valley due to landslide and with too many opinions, tempers flying they handled the situation very well. Our trip back to Leh was very strenuous and they ensured that we reached our hotel in Leh safely. We had wonderful Food during the tour Thank you to Arati Mohite for a wonderful experience while booking. Thanks again Amit, Jigar for all your help and efforts.
Sulata Hosadu LHHL 31 July 2015

Sucheta Shikrapurkar LHHL 09 August 2015
This is Mihir Malik from Panvel,Navi Mumbai.. Having a passion for photography.. i wanted to travel Ladakh since a long time. I booked the Leh-Ladakh Tour with Veena World at your Panvel office. My experience was the best time i had in my life. I am 21 years old and i travelled alone on the tour.. My mom at home was relaxed because she knew i was travelling with veena world. This was my third tour with Veena world and every time the experience has been fabulous.
Hotels : The hotels were fantastic. Snowland hotel at Leh and Royal Camp at Nubra Valley.. Both were great.. It was great thing on your part to shift the 'Saser Camp' to 'Royal Camp' as many of my friends had told me that the Royal camp is better. Tour Guides : Tour guides were Amit Kene and Jigar Vora..Both were superb.. They played cricket with us and also held many interesting group games. Bornfire was also there on the 5th day and the guides danced with us and also made everyone dance.. Travelling alone never made me feel homesick as the guides treated me like their younger brother..
The local guide was Mr.Tundup Nolong.. He had such a great knowledge about the entire region of Ladakh that i literally had to make notes to remember each and everything.. The guides also enjoyed with us at Sand Dunes,Nubra Valley..
Made lots of friends and the 'Ladakh Whatsapp group' is very active !!
Suggestions : Travelling to Panamik hot water springs was very very tiring as it was 2.5hours one way because of the landslides.. And when we reached there.. the spot was closed and we couldn’t enjoy anything.. So alternative options could be thought instead on one day at panamik.
The food was amazing as always.. and we were also served Momos :) Hot garam Batata Vada was superb !
Kudos to Veena World.. Awesome fun.. Already planning my fourth tour with Veena World to Rajasthan Marwad in November.. :)
Mihir Malik LHHL 09 August 2015
Just returned from Leh Ladakh tour. So still in same mood, wonderful trip. Good hotel. Tent in Nubra valley was superb. Food was quite good and variety menu. Not happy with the custard and it is repeated thrice. Vehicles good Drivers and tour guide very nice. Tour manager should accompany from mumbai till mumbaiTour managers Amit and Jigar very much caring helpful and good managers to manage everything. Rethink over hot spring tour of panamic especially when road conditions are not good not worth travelling for 2 hours. Rest everything good, no problem.
Dr Meghana Raje LHHL 09 August 2015
Leh Ladakh Chandigarh Manali – my first experience through Veena World and this is one experience I wouldn’t want to forget for life time. This is long cherished dream fulfilled to visit Leh Ladhak was fulfilled. We were a small group of only 13 travelers and also had senior citizens travelling with us who were above 70 plus, but nevertheless they seemed to be enjoying with all of us with the same enthusiasm. The effort put in by Sachin Bhise and supported by Amol was tremendous in this matter as they have paid utmost attention to all the small details that were required to make our journey wonderful and memorable. I wish to mention about two details about Sachin, one that he is an ace photographer who has captured some awesome pictures of us all, as these are going to be memories which are going to be with all of us forever. I have troubled him a lot to get my pictures clicked, so this mention was very necessary. Also second mention about the Hot Springs to be visited in Pramanik from Leh, was highly impossible if Sachin had taken the decision to turn around back to the hotel as the roads were in very bad condition because of the landslides. Once we reached the destination, we found that our vehicle couldn’t reach up to the Pramanik Centre and the Centre was closed due to landslide as all the muck had entered inside. Nevertheless we all still climbed up and got to enjoy the hot springs in streams coming down directly from the mountains, something we wouldn’t have been able to experience, if the centre was open. This was something very breathtaking and can only be experienced by oneself without describing it in words.
Lastly you guys are the hero’s of your company, and the tours rock because of your continuous effort.God Bless you guys and keep up the work.
Shilpa Hadkar LHJW 05 August 2015

Vrunda Dyahadray LHDL 26 July 2015
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for our amazing tour of Srinagar, Kargil, Leh, Ladakh. We had fabulous time. We felt properly looked after from day one .Thanks to fantastic and energetic managers Harshal Pansare and Sahil Patil for making our trip such a memorable experience. I would like to once again thank Harshal and Sahil for going an extra mile to help us through in times of difficulty. May it be bad health, road blockage due to land slide or cancellation of plane due to bad weather. They always stood by us. Without their help, it would have been tough for us! I honestly appreciate their interpersonal skills and friendly approach. Respect their sense of responsibility and care! Very well planned tour. Everything right from Travel, Accommodation, Entertainment & most important food was perfectly managed and we did not have to worry about a single thing. We had an awesome experience with Veena World. The entire trip was great, a real once in a lifetime experience of Leh Ladakh. Thank you for the wonderful tour !!!!
Ujjwala Muke LHDL 26 July 2015
Ladakh in itself is an amazing place. The tour was completely perfect. The accommodation, the food, the drivers, the guide, all were too good. Our tour managers Harshal Pansare and Sahil Patil managed the complete tour very efficiently, whether it was bad health, trouble due to land slide or the cancelled flight, all the situations were handled very carefully.This Ladakh tour was a much awaited and needed break for me and my Aai and we could enjoy it to the fullest with you. Thank you so much.
Kartiki Puranik LHDL 26 July 2015
Let me first congratulate you for making the Women's Special tour of Leh Ladakh, a grand success. Before I could come out of those blissful moments, I had to leave for Udaipur, hence the delay in sharing my feedback.Though the tour started with some unforeseen hiccups and teething troubles of rescheduling of the flights and delayed flight to Leh, we believed in keeping patience and did not allow those things steal the joy! That helped us. The sincerity of the tour managers helped us to bear with the change in the itinerary due to the local strike at Leh. It was a bit difficult to visit sightseeing places before getting acclimatized. But we chose to understand the genuine problems faced by the tour managers. They recompensed by making us play games with our group members! The games were truly entertaining! We had great fun playing. Initially we were wondering if only dinner is provided after reaching Leh, we would have to arrange for our other meals. Your representative at Ahmedabad had informed us that if it is not mentioned in the itinerary, it won't be provided. But to our pleasant surprize we were served dinner at Delhi too! All the meals served were excellent in quality and never insufficient. Veena world never gave us a chance to complaint!! It was ensured that good, quality food is served and all the kinds of cuisines were included. I loved all the soups served in the meals! The cars and the drivers of the cars at Leh were very good. The courtsey and politeness of the drivers and other staff at hotels and camp sited were praiseworthy. Veena world has earned respect with them and that penetrated in their treatment to the customers!! Arrangements made to pay homage to our armed forces on Kargil day was like a cherry on the pie! I have no words to describe my appreciation for that. You not only made it possible for us to attend the function but the Rakhi and gifts given to our Javans was remarkable.

I loved the way the fashion show was conducted. The enthusiasm of the participants was overflowing! A touch of professionalism aptly controlled it!! It was too good! I just hope that the comment I heard from somebody saying, `Those who are coming for the third or fourth time are given the awards' is untrue. You don't need to to do any such thing as you have taken such good care of the customers that such incentives are not required. All the staff members of Veena World are very sincere, enthu to serve and take good care of the customers. I would suggest one thing, in your Ahmedabad office also it should be more like it. I am looking forward to enjoy another tour with you.
Nimisha Paradker LHWA 21 July 2015
I along with my wife Navanita have just been on Leh Ladakh tour , our experience was wonderful and the tour was well managed with all the odds, I would like to especially thank and convey our regards to two of our tour manager Mr P Thalkar and Jigar Vora for their hard work and cheerful way of handling the entire tour. Kindly convey the same to your Director Veena Tai.
Prasad Gharat LHHL 19 July 2015
Leh was on my wish list for about 2 years now.. Every time I saw people updating their Facebook status about Leh, I would want to go there. Thankfully, since this year I had made up my mind to explore Leh.. You guys made the trip possible and worth the wait. Having seen a lot places/cities/countries as a backpacker, this was my first time travelling with a big group and also the first time with any tour operator. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip of Women’s Special Leh Ladakh right from the start to the end. Our tour managers, Swapnil and Niyoti were the best hosts I could have asked for. Swapnil and his funny one liners didn't let any tensions bother us while Niyoti's sweet smile was what kept us going. And not to mention Amit, who patiently used to come wake us up every morning at least twice. Thank you guys for being so patient and yet so fabulous. The arrangements for the trip were very comfortable right from the hotel rooms to the food and the cars for sightseeing. Of course no trip is complete without some glitches, however your team patiently handled all our frustrations, irritations, anger and yet assured us that the trip was going to be smooth. Just a suggestion, maybe you could try doing group check-in for the travellers. This way it is fast and also the luggage weight gets distributed through all the travellers.
| Lastly, it was great to meet new people and make new friends on the trip. The experience was fabulous! Keep up the good work guys. Will definitely travel again with you sometime soon. Cheers!
Mini Parab LHWA 21 July 2015

The women’s special Leh Ladakh tour arranged by Veena World was quite successful. I personally enjoyed different events during the entire tour. Hotel and food was good. Our tour managers, Alok and Prachi were quite helpful and concerned about our wellbeing. This was my first trip with veena world.I think in future I will not hesitate to travel with VW.I should mention negative points too for the improvement.1)quality of handbags was not good since the belt was broken before reaching home.2}At the leh airport many ladies were in tension because of mess over there.Infact we needed help at that point.We ran short of time.may be we could have started earlier from hotel.overall veena world has created good impression and in future I would recommend my friends to visit Leh with VW.
Dr. Vandana Dhamankar LHWA 21 July 2015
I just had a tour to LEH LADAKH with Veena World’s Women’s Special… it was a nice experience. Veena World is good for all the service and hospitality. As this was Ladies special tour all age group ladies were there but they take care of everyone like their relatives only. I want to mention special thanks to our tour Manager Prachi & Alok they did great job. They take care that everyone be comfortable and enjoy each movement. We enjoyed our tour more because of them thank you guys. No suggestion, no complaints for Veena World. I will love to travel with Veena World again. Thank you.
Ashvini Rathi LHWA 21 July 2015
It was a very pleasant tour at Leh Ladakh and the services and hospitality provided by the Tour Manager Pranay and Jigar was very good and appreciable. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the natural beauty of Leh and Ladakh was mesmerising and unforgettable. Food provided at the place was good and no complaints for the same, considering the altitude at which we were being served. Travelling arrangements were also comfortable. Hats off to the entire Veena World team for arranging the tour so very good. Hope to tour through Veena World very soon at other destinations. Once again, thanks for memorable trip.
CA Ashok J Modi & Shekhar R Bhandari LHJW 08 July 2015

Shubhada Deodhar LHHL 29 July 2015
The best ever experience I have had travelling with Veena World having had travelled across the world with various National/International travel agencies for three decades. Your Staff's personal/individual attention for my wellbeing with love and care will always be fondly remembered by me. Will look forward to travel with Veena World as long as I am able . With warmest love to you all,
Usha Mukherjee LHWA 21 July 2015
Firstly, I would like to say I enjoyed the trip immensely though there was a bit of chaos at the Delhi airport, due to flight delay and lack of information about the same, once we reached Leh things smoothened out. I would also like to add that our team leaders, Sagar and Bhanupriya took great care of us and saw to our wellbeing and health. In fact, its thanks to their support and help that I had a nice and successful trip. The only aspect I was uncomfortable with is the fact that we were addressed in Marathi most of the time. I believe Veena World caters to people of all religion and castes, hence, the language used at all times should be Hindi and slogans of religious significance (such as ''ganpati bappa moriya'') should not be uttered.
Srividya Iyer LHWA 21 July 2015
I and my mother had gone for Leh and the tour was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed it and did not face any difficulties. The tour manager Pranay Thalkar and Jigar Vohra ensured that we enjoyed the trip and had a safe journey throughout. Both took great efforts in ensuring this. Best wishes to both of them. Overall had a wonderful trip and we look forward to travelling with Veena World again.

It was my mother’s second time with Veena World’s Women’s Special. She had been to Thailand last year. Now, Leh Ladakh. I am very happy to share with you that she is very happy with tour. Ur arrangement, hospitality. She keep on sharing her experience with all. I never thought my mother would come out her kitchen and see the world. But Veena World not only did this but she also got to interact with women from different parts of India. In fact she found her best friend I.e her roommate on tour only. Looking forward to see her in many more tours under the tag of Women’s Special..u really made that woman (my mother) a special one. I wish a good luck...and come up with new ideas..we always keeps our eyes on ur advertisements.
Milind Umape LHWA 21 July 2015
I had blast with Veena World’s Women’s Special Leh Ladakh. It was a nice experience. Very good service, food quality was good. Hotel arrangement was also nice.Main reason for our awesome experience with Veena World is our lovely tour managers. Prachi and Alok both are fabulous. They did their job perfectly. They both take care of us like family. It was safe journey with Veena World. I just want to give one suggestion for women special trip. Please don’t club girls and old ledies in one group. I would like to travel with you again.
Komal Navandhar LHWA 21 July 2015
This was my 1st trip with Veena World, we had been to Leh Ladakh. I was impressed with the whole arrangement, which I found to be both professional and smooth. I would not hesitate to recommend Veena World to my friends and relatives and would also personally be glad to undertake future trips with you.
Lakshminarayan Iyer LHHL 17 July 2015
First and foremost I am thankful to you and your team for arranging astonishing tour of Himalayan Ranges thereby bringing people like us close to the nature.Your city office service at Thane was extremely good. Ms Lata Salgaonkar was very helpful and never hesitated to answer any repeated questions. I appreciate her help and patience. The Snack packets given by you were of good quality and sufficient to keep ourselves alive in case of emergency. Tour managers namely Mr. Amit Kene and Amit Nandoskar were well experienced, jolly, cheerful who kept our moral high and happy. Good sense of humour without any insult to anyone or harming feelings. They were more friendly with all of us including young generation. Guide Mr. Noorbhu was most knowledgeable and friendly . We all were lucky to complete our tour without any disturbance and as planned.The actual tour program slightly deviates from the published one. I think two days stay in Nubra valley in tents can be reduced to one and same can be given in Pangong Lake. The hotels arranged and food served was satisfactory but a person like me would like to taste the local food which was not available. You may think on same and arrange to keep at least one local dish. We appreciate tour manager celebrating the birthdays of guests with great pleasure. Entertainment programs were well arranged including local folk dance. Various games and plays were also arranged wherein all participated which needs appreciation. The only lacuna I found was in camp fire program arranged in Nubra Valley camp. The collection of songs required for dance were not available resulting into almost failure of a good program. Otherwise all were just jostling and most eager to enjoy the moment. On our return journey from LEH we faced some difficulty which I have shared with your team, request you to take this matter with the airline. Other than that our trip was most successful and enjoyable.

It was an excellent tour to start with. Our tour managers Mr. Bhavesh Vichare and Mr. Akshay Gaikwad were very helpful and cooperative. They took very good care of everyone. They had a sound knowledge of the region with good communication skills. All the best for their future endeavours. The drivers were good in their driving skills and polite. One could see their co-operation during any time of need and amongst themselves. Our car driver Mr. Stenzen was of great help especially during the time when my father Mr. AM Muntode had a fainting attack due to altitude sickness at Changla pass. I would like to thank him for his assistance during the same through your tour company. One thing I felt of inconvenience was traveling to Mumbai for flight to Delhi instead of taking flight from Pune to Delhi and unavailability of services of a proper lounge at delhi airport during the transit. I hope the management takes a note of this. It was first time that we were with a group tour. We had a great time. We would surely like to take our next tour with Veena World.

At the outset, let me mention that me and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the Leh Ladakh tour. Both of us were a little sceptical about this tour since the travel involved high altitude journey and had fear of some breathing trouble etc. But everything went well. We are carrying many fond memories of this tour back home. I also must mention that our tour leaders Akshay and Bhavesh did a splendid job of managing the tour. They were constantly on their toes to ensure that all the members in group are comfortable. At one time, when we were stuck just before the Khardung La, they arranged for hot tea and served it in our vehicles. We could see that it was not an easy task to accomplish at that odd place. This is just one example of their resourcefulness and timely actions. We experienced the same throughout our tour. Pl convey our thanks to them. I have shared some suggestions regarding basic facilities and menu with your team, hope you consider them.
This is my second tour with Veena and i must say me and my wife are satisfied and happy with our experience.

This was my first group tour and first from a travel company. I was little reluctant to go via tour company, but due to unavailability of air tickets had to opt for the tour but I should say I got every penny worth. I had been to Leh Ladakh and after doing the tour I realized it was a wise decision to go for the tour than self-support. Considering the geography and weather conditions, the tour managers did an excellent job. The group was a great one with lots of energy. Now the most important thing, the tour was managed in the best possible manner by Mr Sachin Bhise and Mr Rohan Deshpande.
They infused lot of energy in group, guided us to great extent, took care of us every moment and overall helped us to have a memorable once in lifetime Ladakh experience. My sincere thanks to both of them and you tour company.

Our Leh Ladakh tour was very excellent, enjoyable, memorable and hassle free. Sachin and Rohan both of them made this tour very enjoyable, entreating with human touch. Veena World is going absolutely fine and most practical view saving our earth...

Last month, we experienced the trip of our lifetime with Veena world.. LEH LADAKH... yeah it deserves those capitals. Amazing location.. Courteous tour managers.Warm hospitality, homely food, well equipped hotels and tents..What more does one ask for? Alison and Kishor were so helpful.. Even taking us to the Army canteen (highest canteen for commoners like us)for some lip smacking Masala dosa in Leh. Also last but not the least our local guide Tsangpo and our driver Tensing...Juley to all of them...
Akshay Kulkarni LHHL 19 June 2015
Myself and my mother Vijaya Abhyankar went with Veena World on the tour of Leh Ladakh. I would firstly like to say that the overall tour was very well organised and well managed. The tour was made to feel comfortable right from Mumbai airport, where Mandar Joshi handed over packets and gave clear instructions. On reaching Leh, we were well received by Makarand Ghanekar and Alok Lokhande.. Both of them took very good care of us during entire tour and looked after our needs at every point of time. About the tour, it was as said well organised, places were covered well and according to our comfort. The time allotted to see places was sufficient enough. Local tour guide Sonam was very cheerful and gave proper information. Our driver Phungsuk was well mannered and took us safely through rough terrain. Kudos to him. All the hotel staff and cooks were well mannered and took good care of our needs. Overall it was a tour to remember. We thank you for keeping us in such comfort in harsh conditions and difficult times. Thanks a lot

I enjoyed travelling with Veena World to Leh Ladakh. This was my first tour and it was great. Our tour managers Alok and Makrand were amazing. They took care of us like a family. I would love to travel again with Veena World. Three cheers for Veena world. It was a great tour full of laughter and fun.
Sagar Patil LHHL 24 June 2015
Me and my wife went too Leh Ladakh trip starting in June. And I must say that, our trip was awesome. The trip was physically demanding and treacherous. But it was very well planned and executed.
I would like to mention the names of tour guide and co-ordinator, Sandeep Patil and Meghraj. They both are fantastic, hard-working and strong. They can easily pull the trip of 100 people or more. They were very enthusiastic and full of energy throughout the trip and never showed fatigue or being to trip many times. They accompanied well, with detailed information on everything, whether places or health issues, food, etc. Very best of luck to both of them and wish them luck. Value for money, I will say 8.5/10. Sandeep Patil & Meghraj 10/10.

Would highly recommend Veena World.

I just want to tell you that you and your entire team have made this Women’s Special- Leh Ladakh tour very special for us all. You have given us more than what was mentioned in your itinerary .I would say that some things money cannot buy and for those things you have Veena World. We have experienced nature’s beauty at its best in the mountains and valleys of Leh Ladakh. We have glimpsed different shades of the colour blue at the Pang-Pong Lake. Camel ride at the Nubra valley and photo stop at Khardungla Top were awesome. Visiting “The Hall of Fame” Museum on Vijay Din and spending quality time with the soldiers is really a life-time experience. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me this opportunity. This is the most memorable experience I am going to cherish in long run. I wish you and your team all the very best. I am sure that you will conduct many more memorable tours in future and I hope to be part of it again & again.

I and my wife Lalitha took your tour to Leh- Ladakh from 27th of July to 2nd of August.We had a wonderful time in touring with you.The hotels provided for us was good and the food on tour was also good. The transport provided was also good. The Tour manager Sandeep Patil and Paresh were very proactive and very helpful. The local tour guide Mr. Nurboo and the driver of our vehicle were also very cooperative. I want to bring one instance where my wife suddenly developed severe altitude sickness and went more or less unconscious. The driver and Mr. Nurboo acted immediately and gave her oxygen and she was revived soon. This happened in Chang la. The tour was arranged well but I suggest a night stay at Pangong Tso lake. Another suggestion is the language of communication and providing instruction. Though most guests travelling were Maharashtrians and speak Marathi,some like us are not and do not speak that language.
I suggest that the medium of communication could be Hindi/English and also maybe Marathi.

Namaskar! I had been to Leh-Ladakh-Kargil-Srinagar with Veena World between 28.06.2014 to 11.07.2014. The tour was excellently organised. Transport, hotels, food & everything else was very well managed. Our Tour Managers Pranay Thakur & Sachin Temak were friendly, caring & professional. The overall experience was really great. My good wishes to Veena World family.

I desperately wanted to get a break from my hectic professional life and hence decided to go to Ladakh. I roped in my wife and my cousin and her husband. While hunting for a perfect package and a good travel agency, we ended up at Veena World. The first cut experience at the Veena world Ghatkopar office was excellent and we decided to pursue with Veena World for the tour. And as it turned, it was an absolutely wonderful trip.
The journey began with a warm and family like treatment when we landed in Leh . Adjusting ourselves to the demanding climate, we started the journey with two wonderful tour managers Nilesh Mhaske and Nilesh Ghosalkar. The experience was mind boggling may it be the local sightseeing or the adventurous drives through the Khardung la and Chang la passes or the beautiful Nubra valley or the scintillating Pangong lake...and not to forget the camel ride.
One of the important part of any travel is food and hats off to the Veena world's cook who never gave a chance to miss our home cooked food. We had a good active and lively group of 28 people and that added to the fun.. This feedback can go on and on with so many good things about the tour, but i would surely like to thank Veena World for giving us memories for a lifetime.

We had been on the Leh Ladakh tour with Veena World ,it was simply amazing. The tour managers were very kind and caring. Ladakh is really a crown over mother India\’s head. Amazing picturesque beauty.

It was nice experience travelling with you to Leh Ladakh. Our tour managers, Subhod Jadhav and Sandeep were very nice and they managed the tour very well, also they managed well in Barlachala where we were stuck in snow for 6 hours, the hotels provided on tour were not good. The food on tour was awesome, Kancha was the best cook. The airline experience was worst my brother had to stay back in Leh and the tour mangers flight was before guests’ flight .This the worst decision taken by Veena World but still the tour was good we had fun and we also got new friends on tour ………SUBHOD DADA U ROCK!

I happened to go to Leh Ladakh tour of yours on this May. I am writing just to tell how nicely it was all managed and the loads of fun we had there. Being such a secluded place , your tour managers managed to give a proper food and take care of each and every need. Especially I would like to thank Nilesh Mhaske for his support and also for handling us. I had gone to various places with snow but however I never enjoyed it coz I had this altitude hypoxia issue. Me being a medical student frankly speaking can’t say how much I am thankful for you for recommending acetazolamide which otherwise I wouldn’t have taken and ruined all the fun I had in that untouched snow. This was my first trip with Veena World and I would say it was the best.
