Bunker Family Expedition to India

The Golden Triangle

The Highlights of the Mogul Empire

Claudia, Monique and Rory, along with parents Paul & Lynn Bunker from Auckland, New Zealand were on a 7 days stimulating and inspiring exploration tour to have glimpse of the masterpieces of Mogul art and architecture – Qutub Minar and Humayun’s Tomb in Delhi, the abandoned city of Fatehpur Sikri, legendary Taj Mahal at Agra and the elephant ride at the fabled Amer Fort in the wonderful Pink City of Jaipur. They also hit upon the Bird Sanctuary, a special cultural show at the Taj and the Rickshaw ride in the narrow streets of old Delhi during their unforgettable Golden Triangle journey.

They attended the wedding ceremony of their cousin in Bangalore too.

Paul Bunker was extremely happy with our arrangements and choice of hotels. His comments & feedback is attached written by Paul himself.

Paul’s beautiful young daughter Claudia and his equally stunning son Rory clicked some striking & memorable pictures during their sojourn. These are impressive pictures highlighting India and at the same time looking at the pictures aren’t the Bunkers equally qualified to get into Bollywood?

We take you on a visual tour of the monuments, palaces, forts, Indian wedding, lifestyle and traditions as per the Bunker family trend.

Bunker Family Feedback

Says Mr. Paul Bunker, resident of Auckland, NZ recently was in India and took Golden Triangle & Bangalore wedding tour.

Dear Suniel,

We had excellent tours with no problems. The driver Prakash was very good along with his assistant Kissan. They ensured we had security in the bus and looked after all bags and valuables while visiting monuments and other places of interest.

The hotels booked for us were just perfect and the Orient Taj at Agra was exceptional. The guides at Jaipur, Agra and New Delhi were excellent while the vehicle too was in immaculate condition.

I don’t have any complaints or suggestion for improvement. I thank you on behalf of our family for looking after us so well and I am sure family members would be back in India.

Many Thanks,




Ms. Lisa

Says Ms. Lisa Nalewak, resident of Boston, USA recently was in India and took Rajasthan tour.

Hi Suniel,

I would surely come back to India for a Holiday. I would like very much to visit the Southern Coast.

There was no place I didn't like. They all were very different and each had its good parts. I can say however, that I enjoyed Jaipur and Udaipur the most.

Your services were excellent. I have no complaints at all. I feel I definitely got my money's worth.

Thanks again Suniel for the wonderful experience!

Mrs. Noni & Mr Sten

Says Mrs. Noni & Mr Sten Tallarida, resident of Clearwater, Florida, USA after their holiday in Mumbai, Golden Triangle & North India:

Hi Suniel,

Sten and I are still "glowing" from our wonderful experience on our trip to India. I have to tell you though; it's become an India I never knew. Everyone we met was so nice and kind and helpful. Indian people are so caring and respectful to everyone....we could use a big dose of that here in the US. No matter what, India will always feel home to me. It is really such a beautiful country having oceans, mountains, jungles etc. Yes, I would come back to India, but probably want to go and see other areas I've never been to such as Southern India and maybe Goa. I know there are a lot of other wonderful areas that I've read about but in 2 weeks it's impossible to take it all in. The hotel in Mumbai wasn't bad, but it wasn't as nice as all the others we stayed at. The ones in Agra, Jaipur, Delhi and especially Mussoorie were great.

Suniel you made our stay in Mumbai so very special. First of all, we felt very lucky to meet you. You and Gunjan are both so interesting, caring and giving.......REALLY special people. You and your family did more for us than any family member would have done for us. What a very special "homecoming" it was for me to see the "Gulmarg" apartment building in Mumbai. The sightseeing, the wonderful dinners and sharing of your time and family, (especially when your cousin's marriage was going on) were beyond the call of duty. We were very touched and so very appreciative. I only hope we will have the opportunity to repay your kindness when you come to visit us here. You must promise to come and stay with us.

Nishi (Tour Guide), Mukbarahk (Driver) and Raju (Guide and Driver) were absolutely wonderful. They were caring and had lot of patience. The van was new and clean looking and the traveling was very pleasant. Nishi was very helpful. He also is a phenomenal tour guide. He really knows the history and does enjoy speaking.

Mussoorie ended up being one of the highlights of the trip. The views are absolutely breathtaking! If you have never been there, I would highly recommend it to you. The Jaypee Hotel was truly magnificent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

As far as value for our money, I think you did great on the budget we gave you. No complaints from me. Mumbai Hotel would be the only one I'd try to improve on. Not that the service wasn't good, but the bathrooms left a little to be desired and the rooms as well. I guess we are spoiled here in the US with all our comforts that we take for granted.

I really cannot suggest anything that could have made our stay any better than you managed to make it for us. Everything went very smoothly and we were surrounded by the best people that made it possible for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making it so memorable. I cannot thank you enough for all your kindness and efforts.

Please give my love and thanks to your whole family from me and Sten. Please Take care and much love to all,

Noni and Sten

keep in touch, we would love to stay in contact and be updated with all your news.

Mr Roger

Says Mr Roger Malaquin, resident of Los Angeles, USA after their recent holiday in India & Bhutan:

Dear Suniel,

I would visit India again in a heartbeat - most likely on a nonstop from the US. We would love to tour the South, although our visit to North India turned out to be the highlight of our trip! Darjeeling, Nepal and Kashmir, in the Himalayas, would be at the top of our list of places to visit.

There weren't any places we regretted visiting, and the Hotels only kept getting better. Considering the narrow time frame you had to book us, the high season, locations and of course the price, I'd say we were more than satisfied! Thank you again for all of your hard work!

Anyway, my dear Suniel, all of us cannot stop talking about how well planned and executed the trip was; how friendly everyone connected with it was with us; it was a special moment to see our ancestral house in Delhi, and St. George's College, where I went to boarding school for many years. All of it has changed; the sheer humanity of it all was an eye-opener; the pollution and widespread poverty was hard to take - but in the end, India's wonderful history and it's equally wonderful people are things that never changed, will never be altered and will only persevere far into the future.

Please convey our love and best wishes to your family and our over-riding wish is that someday soon we may return the favor and host you in our own place in this part of the world - our little slice of paradise that we call California!

We promise to stay in touch!

Best regards,

South African Holiday

Says Mr. Vicky Mahendru Resident of Mumbai

I took a vacation along with my family to South Africa recently as all arrangements were done by Palms & Soul, a luxury tour company based in Mumbai.

We were picked up in a private car from Cape Town airport and our great holiday commenced. We were put up in all appropriate hotels, jungle lodges & resorts considering I was traveling with my family that included my two children aged 3 & 7 besides of course me and my wife.

Initially, we were apprehensive about traveling to South Africa with kids but as Palms & Soul reassured and prepared itinerary accordingly, it turned out to be the holiday of my life – taking away all my work stress and fatigue resulting in rejuvenated couple in me and my wife.

The drive from Cape Town to Cape Point via Camps Bay, Hout Bay, Chapman’s Peak and return through Simon’s Town is perhaps the best in the world. The whole route is scenic enough to dry off your camera battery if not charged fully. The blue water of the ocean can’t be bluer than this. Knysna on the Garden route is stunning but Cape Town and surroundings won our hearts.

My children had no problems anywhere including Kruger National Park where we took three game drives which was again amazing.

Great planning & management! Palms & Soul!! We had great time in SA!!!
