“Few things command more respect than hard work, integrity, dedication and the ability to follow through. These are among the many attributes I experienced from start to finish when travelling with Tripwired Tours.

My  itinerary took me to Rajasthan for three weeks to six cities and off the beaten path to villages. Tripwired managed to coordinate every aspect of my adventure. The choice of guides were perfect. The drivers were all skilled and reliable and the vehicles were always clean and stocked with water, sanitized wipes and in some cases snacks for us to enjoy. Safety was never a concern.

my three-week journey through India significantly exceeded all of my expectations.. I am a big believer in managing expectations and I must say that thanks to Michael and Liz my three-week journey through India significantly exceeded all of my expectations.

I could not be more pleased with every component of my adventure and must give Tripwired the highest marks possible. Thank you!!!”

“Fantastic small, friendly, informed, colourful tour.  Scrumptious food, quirky, heritage, posh, gorgeous hotels, wonderful palaces, out of the square experiences.   We had a fabulous tour guide in Harry, with an absolutely outstanding coach driver and assistant.  Everything was organised, catered for, planned for and so easy. Brilliant.”

“I travelled on Mike Gebicki’s tour of Rajasthan from October 8-24, and consider it one of my best trips ever. We got to see a lot of Rajasthan and also the Taj Mahal in Agra, which is in Uttar Pradesh state. We travelled by bus, stayed in some nice hotels, and saw some wonderful sights. We walked and used tuk-tuks through the streets, seeing up close the vibrant and chaotic life of Indian cities. We ate superb Indian food in establishments ranging from top quality restaurants to the odd street stall. For those who liked shopping there were lots of opportunities to buy good-quality local products. On this tour I became aware of how big India is and how much it has to offer. Thanks to Mike, his wife Liz, and many locals, we had a very enjoyable and informative tour. I also enjoyed travelling in a group.”

It’s hard to decide on the biggest highlight. Was it the lovely accommodation, the astounding centuries-old palaces and forts, the intimate walks through country villages, or the mad tuk-tuk rides in city traffic? All of them and more!

We enjoyed our trip immensely. The excellent hotels, dining, pools, massages, waited on hand and foot, It was hard to exit and explore. What a fascinating place India is. Ancient sites , castles, leopards, constant energy flow from an every smiling populace.  And not to forget, food. Thanks for making it so easy.

Anne and I really enjoyed all the wonderful things you had up your sleeves for first timers to India. The company was great, and that covers you of course, but our fellow travellers and Harry and Co and our guides. The food was really good and many of the places we visited were truly memorable.

“My heartfelt thanks– Not only for all my trip of a lifetime to Rajasthan– but also for the extreme kindness and consideration you have shown to me in the last 16–17 days. I can only thank my lucky stars that I chanced upon that small article in the Weekend Australian so long ago. It all has exceeded my expectations. Always, I felt that India was a place that would become very dear to me – and I certainly was not wrong. You and your amazing tour staff have made my dreams come true. The experiences, history of the place, the people and fun I’ll never forget. Will look out for your future tours.“

I had the most wonderful holiday in Rajasthan with Tripwired Tours! Michael and Liz were meticulous in their planning to provide us with a cavalcade of amazing experiences. Staying for several nights in luxury resorts, we had time to explore and relax, and to enjoy sumptuous Indian cuisine. We visited villages and homesteads off the beaten tourist track to talk with local people and get a real insight into the unique culture of the region. Michael and Liz always went the extra mile to be flexible and accommodate individual needs and wishes. I enjoyed this tour enormously and I highly recommend Tripwired Tours. I look forward to travelling with them again.

Thank you for a wonderful Moroccan tour. We saw so many interesting and diverse aspects of the country, from snow to desert, to fertile valleys, old towns and buzzy cities.

Even though we covered so much ground it didn’t feel a slog, the times we spent two or three nights in one place were great and the afternoons we had free to pursue our own agendas added to the relaxed feel.

I loved the funky bedrooms in new and old riads, they were beautiful and comfortable, essential after busy days. The food was delicious and really healthy too.

Thanks for seeking out such great venues.

All up it was a fabulous trip, one I’ll always look back on with pleasure.

On the basis of our April 2019 experience in Morocco with Tripwired Tours we are more than happy to recommend their 2020 tour. Morocco is a fascinating country with spectacular scenery, and friendly people who value the benefits of tourism.

Our 16 day itinerary covered the highlights of the country — medinas full of spices, fresh food and many handcraft items, Berbers among the Saharan dunes, small villages of rust-mud construction, the snow-covered Atlas mountains, the historic seaport of on the Atlantic as well as the fabled cities of Casablanca, Fes and Marrakech.

The itinerary was well-paced and varied, allowing time for individual activities. The Moroccan accommodation was diverse in character, often in riads or kasbahs repurposed as quirky but quality living quarters. The small bus was comfortable, the travel legs between lodgings not demanding. All in all, a most satisfactory tour.

Despite the dire warnings and concern about safety from those who dare go there” and notwithstanding my own trepidation about a tour group having only ever travelled solo, I took the plunge.

Result; an amazing journey with nine fellow travelers, expert local guides the principals of very skilled, fun and professional Australian tour (tripwired.com.au)

From the moment I was so warmly welcomed in Casablanca by Tripwired’s Michael and Liz, any apprehensions I had dissipated in Morocco’s balmy air.

Tailored to accommodate no more than ten travellers, the seventeen day revealed the diversity of this remarkable country with its ancient history many influences, evidenced by Roman ruins, Portugese , French, Arabic and Moorish aesthetics the vanishing nomadic lifestyle and the indigenous Berbers’ love of its own traditions and culture.

Tripwired Tours are knowledgeable, flexible, efficient, empathetic and passionate about providing their clients with the ultimate experience in the country in which they’re travelling.

I have just completed a 3 week tour of Rajasthan in November 2019. So impressed by our accommodation, food, guides, sites and organizational skills of Mike and Liz. Beyond expectations. We were a small diverse but inclusive group of people who enjoyed everything and got on well together. Special thanks to Mike and Liz for ensuring everyone was happy and well looked after. I agree wholeheartedly with the many positive comments of earlier testimonials. I loved India and can’t wait to return. I can’t wait to travel with Mike and Liz again whether in India or anywhere in the world.

I want to say that I am very grateful for the trip and especially the following highlights:
 the beautiful people, full of vibrant life and colour (and not just their clothes, but their homes, their spirit); the temples which challenged me to broaden my thinking and understanding about other people and what sustains them spiritually – plus being ’thanked’  by the elephant plonking his trunk on my head; the Mahabalipuram shrines, hewn top down out of a huge rock face – extraordinary craftsmanship from centuries ago; the Thirumayam Fort; the delicious food, presented with love and care; the way we were welcomed at each hotel, so respectfully, gently, and then the way we were farewelled, plus the luxury and comfort of the accommodation; seeing where and how veenai musical instruments are made; the concert where those beautiful girls danced; the coir factory and the men working age-old machines; the stay at the spice village where I learnt so much; the cruise on the backwaters; the markets everywhere that dazzled with colours of food, spices and people; the play – what a sensation the actor was who told his story through facial expressions; the wonderful town/city of Fort Cochin; tuk tuks, rickshaws, bus rides up mountains; magnificent views, wonderful villages; your leadership and attention to details.
