I chose Kesari tours as this is the most reputed tourist company I had heard of. But my experience was completely different.The articles in the paper are just your marketing. But no customer care is taken by the tour guides abroad as the India tour guide has no voice over the abroad tour guide.
Here are my concerns. Please take Kesari tours serious action on this. Please do not fool the clients as they are source to give bread and butter to anyone.1. There was no follow-up for the VISA processing.2. There was no information exchanged before the trip began.3. When we landed in Malaysia the Malaysia Kesari tours tour guide asked us to pick up only light luggage to start for Genting Highlands. But none of the office informed any one of the passengers that they have to prepare two separate packing.4. We did not got all the food items which you hand over at Mumbai. We got only chakali, dry fruit, tea coffee, chocolates, and potato chiwada. We came Kesari tours to know about this only on last day when all the passengers were exchanging the food items. Is it not Kesari responsibility to handle such a small thing in a better way? Shouldn’t there be transparency or some checklist to know that passenger has got all the things. Good that I had taken Laddus and Bakarwadi. But again your marketing is wrong Kesari tours you say that don't take anything while leaving.
