Getaway Goddess holiday to Sri Lanka was one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had. From the moment we landed and started on our private tour of the island - seeing Dambulla Caves; driving through Kandy and into the Highlands through tea plantation estates at Nuwara Eliya; an early morning safari at Yela National Park; to the beach at Bentota - it ticked every box for us. Guide would always waiting for us and gave an extra insight into the activities we undertook. On the ground arrangements and accommodation could not be any better than this. Namrata took the trouble to listen to our requirements and put together a first class itinerary which worked really well for us. A well organised and wonderful holiday with full of memories.
Once again big thanks to Cox and Kings team for creating memories which will last forever.
It was a wonderful trip from the villas to the adventure sports and everything. We loved the place totally.it was soothing experience overall. The cherry on the top was the spa massage. Charm of the trip it was I would say. The place is very safe for women travellers and we didn't face any trouble at any moment. People are very sweet and cooperating over there. Our guide- mr. Sumatra from pacto and driver were also very nice and friendly. The perfect holiday plan through Cox and kings :) thank you for making our travel plans easy and sorted! Would definitely recommend it to our family and friends for future references.

Everything went on well as per schedule.All the arrangements including accommodation , food was good.You can forward my feedback to your office.Actually your office has arranged a professional photographer for our trip which was a pleasant surprise to all of us.
It was a wonderfully planned trip, especially for me - since I traveled solo.
A very well arranged service right from the beginning, be it in Rome, Florence or Venice. Nothing was left for me to worry for, with all the well planned service.
Trip to Venice is the highlight of the trip - fun packed days!
Loved every second of my trip:)
Thanks to Cox and Kings for making my Solo Travel hassle free.
Hi, I am mukta Rastogi, and I have just got back from an amazing trip to Egypt. This tour was completely organised by tasneem rangwala. She customised my tour, did the arrangements according to my wishes and gave me a very good deal too. I was happy with her involment and execution of the trip. During the tour too, she was constantly in touch with me, and she also upgraded my room in cairo when I told her that I was not happy with the current room. I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciate tasneem for all her efforts to make my trip memorable and fantastic in all ways possible. Kudos to her and her team. I have already started recommending her to my family and friends and wish her lots of success in her work and vision.
Another beautiful thing I adored was that she is always smiling and friendly even if I called her 10 times in a day... That's so welcoming and sweet of her to make us feel comfortable. All she says is " just go and have a wonderful and fun trip" .... That's what we did.... Thanks again tasneem. Love you and looking to have many more fun trips ....

I had a fantastic trip with Getaway Goddess! I traveled solo and had an amazing time! The trip was very well organised and we all had a comfortable experience! Would love to travel with Getaway Goddess again :)
I just completed a Rajasthan trip with Getaway goddess. We were 10 girls and this was my first experience travelling with the group. I have enjoyed the trip alot. That was an amazing experience with all the girls. Most importantly I would like to appreciate all the extra efforts of our tour manager Mr. Tabrez Khan, He was always on his toes to help all of us. He managed all the members of the group nicely and coordinated very well. He has not given a single reason to anyone to complain. He was very kind, helpful and gentle all the time.
Our whole group of 10 girls would be difinitely travelling with Cox and Kings again. And would also recommend to our friends.
Visit to Egypt and Morocco.Had a wonderful time.Everything was taken care of. Thank you Cox and Kings.
