  • Amazing Experience, Amazing food. Taken care of throughout the trip loved the experience of meeting new, vibrant people of kutch & tasting the local cuisine out here. Would love to visit many more places with you guys. Keep up the good work.

  • My 2nd experience with TLOT 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 TLOR. Traveler number #1055

  • My third trip with TLOT!! 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 TLOT & 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.

  • Very nice Experience, good food and amazing place to stay in. Backpacking with Tlot was the best decision.

  • 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 TLOT 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.

  • We have been waiting to do a road trip for quite a while now and we are glad it started with TLOT. You guys are amazing people. I was thoroughly entertained and look forward to meeting you guys again. The planning and selection of everything was pretty good. Thanks for the amazing experience. The hospitality and travel stories is something which I loved the most.

  • Our first experience with TLOT & we could not have asked for a better group to travel with! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Despite all the craziness, this will remain etched in our memories as one of the best ones. Awesome experience looking forward to more of such experiences with TLOT. May you guys grow in abundance in numbers, trips and experience.
    See you again soon

  • 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 TLOT!
    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 TLOT are by far the best people to travel with. Not a single moment was dull or boring. I was wrong that TLOT trips are cheap. TLOT is very sophisticated, elite to the extent of being snobbish 😉

  • TLOT you guys are awesome. The experience that you guys gave us was out of the world. You’ll made us feel like family. TLOT is the only organisation who arrange budget trips. I have been waiting to visit kutch since 8 years and TLOT made it possible for me. I have already decided to go on my next trip with you guys. Taking back a lot of memories and new friends.

  • This is my first trip with TLOT 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 TLOT 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 TLOT soon.

  • My third trip with TLOT 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.

  • The best road trip and the best backpacking trip I have ever been on. Each and every moment well spent and a memory associated with it. The pillars of TLOT are just awesome…! Feels home since every person on the trip becomes a family member. Last but not the least, an experience that will last a lifetime, See you soon,

  • My second trip with you guys and I can’t tell you how much I love you guys. Concept, trips, blueprint, cost factor and off course the guys from TLOT – Rann trip has been spectacular from start to the end. Thank you so much for being so wonderful. Love you guys 🙂 Inshallah I will see you guys on Trip X.

  • 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 TLOT for all the good memories!! Hope to cross paths soon. Till then cya. 🙂

  • The experience was amazing for a first time backpacking trip. Every moment spent with you guys was worth it. Thanks for everything. All the best for all your future trips. Hope to see you guys soon.

  • The most unexpected trip I have ever been on. It was fun and I got to meet so many new faces. The road trips kept me entertained and made the time go by. I am amazed at the patience and dedication you guys have. The way you handle unforeseen circumstances is truly amazing. Keep up the great work. Hope to do this soon.
