Testimonials India Ladakh

We take pride in our trip testimonials. We hope you’ll take a moment to read those below written by previous participants of a Southern India photo tour led by the same guide (K. Grobl).


“The trip was fantastic with zero disappointments!   It provided an excellent range and selection of hotels. One of my favorites was the Hotel Haveli Hari Ganga in Haridwar: ideal location.  I LOVED the tented camp at Manvar!

Karl was highly attentive and genuinely committed to helping everyone take their photography skills to the next level. He would routinely stop us on the street or wherever we might be to check what we were shooting, viewing the back of our cameras, and made recommendations to improve our results.  I greatly appreciate that Karl encouraged group reviews of our work almost every night and shared his own work. Seeing his and the other travelers’ way of seeing India was instructive and inspiring.

The local guides for the trip were EXCEPTIONAL (DV) and wonderful, very kind and attentive (Sikh fellow). There are many choices for photo tours to India, but I felt this was well priced, the locations were ideal for northern India and Karl’s photographic expertise and personality made this THE only choice for me.”

“It was a wonderful trip and it certainly exceeded all my expectations from each photo shoot, every hotel, our local Indian guide, Dv, the pace…all contributed to the success of the trip. Best of all, Karl was a most accommodating, patient, instructive, talented, good-natured, entertaining, tireless leader AND definitely well-connected. Cocktails one evening in Delhi at the US Embassy with Ambassador Nancy Powell was an unexpected honor and treat for us all.  My only regret was not going on the extension.  Thanks for everything.”
