Arrived at Pune after an excellent trip of the andamans. The beautiful beaches, the exuberant nature the sands the sun and everything there was pure joy to the soul and looking forward to come again after my retirement. The services rendered by you was incomparable. Your soft spoken assurance about the difficult itinerary, your goading us to see places inspite of us wanting rest and the precision arrangement to various places made the trip one of our best amongst the many trips we have undertaken. I have recommended your name to various friends of mine and am sure that they may avail of the same. The flexibility afforded by you to our time bound schedule and our reluctance to see some places which was overruled by you and which was visited by us on your recommendation was a delight in itself and would have been missed by us.
Thanks for the warmth with which you entertained us and looking forward to meeting you again.
If it is holidaying at Anadaman & Nikobar then IT IS ANDAMAN EXCURSION. I have taken their service during my recent tour to andaman from 6/2/14 to 14/2/14. They have delivered everything as per our discussion with personal attention and planning. Thanks to Mr. Deepak & Mr. Ganesh for arranging an unforgetable and enchanting holiday for me and my family.
I had travelled during Sep2013 first week.
They have been really well-planned.Their first motive has been Customer Satisfaction.Ganesh met us every day in the hotel to discuss the next day schedule.Our only duty was to enjoy the Holiday.
Andaman Excursion took us to the Real Holiday mood.Thanks.
We started looking for Honeymoon destination around two months before our marriage date 19-october-2012, undoublty we agreed upon A&N within a week, leaving behind "abroad" destinations costing same or slightly higher. Now it was time to look for various tour operators (BIG & small), their itinerary and cost.
As everybody does my first stop was MMM, everything as per website was looking decent, but they were providing group travels, which was a big no for me on my HM trip. There plus point was Airfare was included in the package.
Later I started looking for various local travel agent in Andaman as well as in Delhi. Every body came up with their best offers. I liked the itinerary most send by a person call Mohammad from Andaman Excursion. I found his reference somewhere in tripadvisor and quick goggling landed me to their website.
He assisted me very professionally in adjusting the itinerary for budget, comfort, duration and number of destination / sight seeing during the trip. In fact it was completely DIY.
About my itinerary:
Must (what I thought): PB Cellular Jail, Havelock Island, MAKRUZZ, stay in Sea Shell at Havelock (it do not have room service/ intercom, I came to know on my visit)
Optional: Neil Island
Customization done by my tour operator with my consent:
He arranged one side trip to Havelock via Neil Island on a Govt Ferry, this covered my optional item and slightly cut on cost. Return from Havelock to PB was on Makruzz. He advised to go for 2* or 3* stay at PB, he suggested Hotel Marine View and Hotel Diviyum Manor. I selected Hotel Diviyum Manor as it was having good rating (it was my mistake!). Later on the day of arrival he put me on a different Hotel for first day (its name is something Inn opposite TSR Emerald) due to non-availability in Diviyum Manor. That Inn was really awesome, it was 10 month old and much better than Diviyum Manor. But as it was booked so I have to check in DM on my final two days of trip. Please avoid DM.
After the package and price was fixed, the next big problem was Air Tickets as I also need to pay advance to confirm my bookings. The Air tickets were exceptionally high and beyond my whole budget of trip. I kept waiting for some special fare discounts, i checked with many travel agents all have an opinion this is not normal trend.
My trip was almost on rough sea, it was 15 days left, my wife also started pinching me. I discussed same with Mohammad, he come for rescue and offered me some group discounted fare which was half of what I was getting everywhere.
So two days before we were all set with our bookings, travel plan and had confirmed tickets in my hand.
1st day: - Arrival in Port Blair – Cellular Jail Arrival at Port Blair in the morning and representative will receive and escort you to the Hotel with our envoy and stay-rest.

Overnight stay at Port Blair.
6th day: - Depart to Port Blair Airport Finally we will escort you to the Airport, return home with lovely memories of the ultimate holiday cherish. Everything went exactly as per the plan, I saw many people their waiting for their Taxis, fighting with their tour operator and lot of stuff you can imagine. I can only sum up, all 6 days it was a Royal treatment provided to us. I am not endorsing Andaman Excursion, It was my commitment with them, if they provide me flawless service, I will rate them in trip advisor. So here I am providing my feedback.
Truly, my Aunt and Mom had a great experience and definitely all the credit goes to you and your team at Andaman Excursions.
Thank you so much for making their holiday truly enjoyable and giving them a whole lot of memories to cherish a lifetime.
Mr. Ganesh Kumar and Mr. Varun were very helpful and polite. They also said that they were very punctual.
They really enjoyed every bit of their stay from the beaches, islands and pollution free environment to the hotels, museums, and the cellular jail. They wouldn't stop admiring the beauty of the place especially Neil Island and Havelock Island. The Under-water sea walking and Sea plane experience was truly amazing.
I want to personally thank you for helping me plan this entire trip for them. You answered all my queries no matter how big or small they were, never tired of attending to my calls and gave me all the information I needed to take a decision be it choice of hotels or the places to visit. The personal attention you gave helped develop a trust and made me rest assured that they would be taken care of and I can send my Mom and Aunt alone. And after their trip, I must say that you didn't prove me wrong.
I would also like to mention that unlike other Holiday Makers you give us the freedom to choose our hotels and individually plan our trip as per our preferences. This makes the holiday even better and definitely value for money.
In short, they had such a great time that they are insisting that all of us must visit Port Blair. Needless to say that when we plan to do so, it is you who I am going to turn to for a memorable holiday.
I am really happy I chose Andaman Excursions.
Overall - Andaman is paradise! Such a beautiful and romantic place that is almost unspoiled by industrialization is hard to find in India. At each and every moment, Andaman did not fail to amaze us by how close it was to nature!!!!All type of food is available there for our taste. We enjoyed water sports speed boat, snorkeling, under water walk and glass bottom boat ride lot.
Last but not least, it would not have been this much fun without Andaman excursion. They planned it as per our need & very organized. All vehicles, ferry bookings & entry passes were arranged as per our request. Accommodation provides d at all places was pleasant.
Mohammed, some of your advices while planning the trip helped us lot. Thank for making it a memorable event. Special thanks to Ganesh for his friendly attitude. He helped us out of the way when we lost some important docs & money at one island.
Sushil and Raj were helpful. Torun at Neil Island was good guide.
