When we decided to travel to India I searched the internet and came upon Destino India Tours. The consultant Hargovind Rajak that assisted me was fast with a quotation that suited our budget but he started getting annoying sending me messages on whats app every day till I reached a point where I just started ignoring him. It seems like these people change their cell phone numbers on a regular basis because when the time arrived for me to tie all the knots and finalise our trip I could not get hold of him. That left me with no further option but to contact the owner which I thought he was, Mohammid Tokir but found out later that he was only one of the directors in the company. What a frustration this was. I am not sure whether this is a culture thing but the communication from India was very poor- emails were not answered and messages was read on whats app but for days you will not get any reply to these messages. It frustrated me to a point where I could pull my hair out of my head. Our trip was not all smooth running because we faced some challenges with a hotel or two and then drivers who could not speak a word English but our driver for a duration of 7 days Ajay Kumar was very kind, help full and friendly and we enjoyed our trip with him. On the last day in Mumbai we had some communication with Mohammed Tokir who asked us if we could take a package back to South Africa for one of his customers that visited India on a previous occasion. We agreed but arriving at the airport we opened the package because we did not felt comfortable booking this package in and not knowing what it was.When we opened the package there were 10 counterfeit fake handbags. The package could not be booked in at Customs as we had no proof of purchase and the bags were confiscated on the Mumbai airport and we almost got arrested for wanting to book counterfeit goods in that are fake. For a company like Destino India Tours to put it's customers through when they knew beforehand is unforgivable. This is reckless behaviour. How can a company do such a thing to its customers.??

For all those who wants to travel to India, I suggest you do your home work properly and focus on the following:
1. check out the hotels on tripadvisor and read the reviews
2. make sure you have a driver and tourguide who can speak proper English otherwise you need to speak Hindi
3. Take NO parcel/ package from anybody if you did not buy it yourself. Not even a friend or family member- this can get you in deep trouble and believe me you don't want to get arrested on an international airport
4. Make sure your communications are answered before hand. Travelling to a foreign country and trying to find your way around with poor communication is just frustrating.

I would love a response from the owner and see what his come back is on this but please take note social media is huge and we can make things very difficult if we want to.
How do you explain this..... Not acceptable at all.
