    My 2nd experience with TLOW was superb, the places chosen to visit were superb. The places to stay for the night were amazing. Truly a budget travel experience. The Rann of Kutch was the highlight of the trip, sunset was superb. The home stay at Rann village made it even more memorable. Looking forward to travel more often with TLOW. Traveler number #1055

    My third trip with TLOW!! well planned and executed even better. Amazing home stays, especially the one near Rann Village. Explored Kutch in its truest sense. Mistakenly left my wallet at the home stay in Rann, but thanks to TLOW & the amazing people of kutch. I got it back safe. Out of the world food, can’t believe you can get happy high on vegetarian food! See you guys at Parvati Valley in March. Keep up the awesome work.

    Thank-you guys for helping me find the love of my life and getting me to this amazing place. Vandit has been telling me for a while to travel with you guys and it was the best decision. I haven’t travelled with a lot of tour operators or travel groups but I think TLOW has hit the nail on the head when it comes to the backpacking experience with the addition of complete safety.

    It’s the perfect mix of adventure, fun, mixed some so called danger. Stay true to making the dream a reality everyday and I look forward to the next adventure.

    A marriage, followed by divorce concluded with my bachelorette and a lot of experiences that cannon be shared here sums up my kickass journey with TLOW!
    I have totally enjoyed every minute of the trip. I’m indeed glad and grateful that I was a part of this beautiful journey to have met amazing people and friends for life! This trip has been unlike anything I have experienced before and TLOW are by far the best people to travel with. Not a single moment was dull or boring. I was wrong that TLOW trips are cheap. TLOW is very sophisticated, elite to the extent of being snobbish 😉

    This is my first trip with TLOW and I had an awesome time with these guys. This will be one of my most memorable trips as this was also my first backpacking trip. I had loads of fun on the trip. The guys at TLOW are doing a very good job, loved the personal attention and I felt very comfortable with them. Looking forward to go on more trips with TLOW soon.

    My third trip with TLOW was full of surprises. A heavy mix of drama, romance, laughter, etc. As I have learnt from the past few years, enjoying the moment is the best way I can live my life and I am thankful that I spent a few days in the company of great people. Making merry, laughing with gay abandon and forgetting for maybe a fleeting moment that this too will pass and the memory lane reality will set in, I know not if I will meet any of these guys again. But I will be happy that this time goes spent well.

    Wonderful to meet so many people from all over. The trip was fantastic, especially the car journeys. A lot of fun and laughs all the way. When Vinita had to guess the Bandra girl’s names … something I will never forget. Thank you TLOW for all the good memories!! Hope to cross paths soon. Till then cya. 🙂
