“Dishonourable company”

Written on: 20/10/2020 by 131Adair (1 review written)

Booked a holiday in January to travel to India in November this year. Paid £2200 deposit. Despite the fact that it was absolutely clear months ago that this trip could not happen Citrus insisted the £1800 balance be paid by the end of September or we would lose the £2200. Less than 3 weeks later and they called to cancel the holiday.....surprise surprise. I was asked to rebook the holiday for next year. I refused and asked for a full refund. I was then told that if I did not rebook the… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/05/2020 by StuartJA (1 review written)

A fantastic holiday from start to finish. Exceptionally well organised; our whole 3 weeks ran like clockwork and was exactly as described and promised. Our guides and drivers were outstanding and couldn't do enough to ensure we enjoyed every moment. All of this was combined with incredible value for money. We would definitely recommend this holiday company, and will definitely booking with them again… Read Full Review

“Solo Traveller Southern India”

Written on: 13/03/2020 by HPatKO (1 review written)

I am just back from a marvellous tour of southern India arranged by Citrus Holidays. I was attracted to their tours by their very reasonable prices and by their moderate single supplement compared with other tour operators. The prices caused me to be rather suspicious at first but my fears were allayed by my initial phone contact where all the details of the itinerary and hotels were provided before I committed to booking. My flights to India from Manchester were arranged for me at a very… Read Full Review

“Flight change for Southeast Asia tour”

Written on: 11/03/2020 by 188Todd (1 review written)

My partner and I booked the Southeast Asia vacation package with Citrus Holidays slated departure March 10, 2020 with finalized payment February 29, 2020. We were notified on March 4 that the original flight we booked (and paid and upgrade for) was canceled. We were offered another option at no cost, however, this new schedule had more layovers and significantly longer ground times. We replied immediately that the new schedule did not suite our needs and we did not want to complicate our… Read Full Review

“Splendours of South India ”

Written on: 07/03/2020 by AntonJan (1 review written)

We really enjoyed this holiday, (the second extended trip with Citrus), which lived up to all our expectations and in some cases exceeded those. We had commissioned an extension of the 10 Day Splendours of South India holiday as offered by Citrus Travel, building on to it an additional 8 days to include some other sights we wanted to explore. This all worked very well with an excellent choice of hotels, offering a good quality of character, Heritage and interesting locations, with most of them… Read Full Review

“Golden Triangle and Kerala tour ”

Written on: 23/02/2020 by MoiraBoyd (1 review written)

My sister and I spent 16 days on this tour. The whole trip was so well organised,I would score it 5 stars. We saw many famous sites in the North and then toured the beautiful Kerala region. We enjoyed many varied experiences from staying on tea and cardamom plantations to wildlife tours, a river boat stay and visiting an elephant sanctuary. Both drivers were very skilled manoeuvring on these rather haphazard roads but a special mention has to go to the man who not only was a great driver but… Read Full Review

“South India Tour with Driver”

Written on: 20/02/2020 by MickandLiney (2 reviews written)

Two weeks in God's own country... A really great trip that is unbelievable value for money. Everything is planned and our driver took good care of us. Nothing was too much trouble and he was smart and punctual. His knowledge of local wildlife was good, too. The hotels we stayed at were varied and of good quality although in one we had to change rooms as the aroma of mould was a little too overwhelming. As this was our first experience of India it was good to have someone who knew the area… Read Full Review

“Southern India Tour and Golden triangle”

Written on: 08/02/2020 by TonyToni (1 review written)

We booked a guided tour to India in May 2019 and after some extensive research we put our trust in Citrus Holidays. The itinerary, the overall cost, and the inclusive meals and transport arrangements seemed to fit the bill perfectly. Well I have to say that we were not disappointed. We flew to Delhi where we were picked up by our Chauffeur who stayed with us for 5 days while we explored the magical sights sounds and history of The Golden Triangle. No photograph can ever compare to seeing the… Read Full Review

“South India Tour”

Written on: 07/02/2020 by Joonthemat (1 review written)

South India tour was amazing. Was a great introduction to South India and very well organised from the moment we arrived at the airport to being dropped back for our journey home. The tour involves a lot of travel in the car so we were delighted we had such a good, helpful, knowledgeable and flexible driver who looked after us so well. We will be back!… Read Full Review

“Golden Triangle and Kerala tour with Citrus”

Written on: 30/12/2019 by Pombo (1 review written)

We - 2 couples - spent 16 days on a well constructed tour firstly of the Golden Triangle, followed by the delightful state of Kerala. We have used Citrus on a few holidays especially Far East, and they rarely if ever disappoint. This particular tour lived up to everything we hoped it would, with the fantastic sights of Dehli, Jaipour and Agra the highlight of which was the stunning Taj Mahal. South to Kerala and a very different climate and landscape however just as enjoyable for it's fantastic… Read Full Review

“Bangkok/Cambodia/Vietnam”

Written on: 23/12/2019

What a fantastic holiday. At first I was apprehensive as sometimes they are not good getting back to you when you send an email to them prior to the holiday. But what a great experience. We did the Holiday of a Lifetime and it was. Visited Bangkok/Cambodia-Siem Reap and Phnom Phen/ Vietnam-Ho Chi Min City(Saigon) and Hanoi with a boat trip to Ha Long Bay included. The airport/ bus station pick ups and drop offs were all on time and very comfortable, drivers were lovely and had all our names on… Read Full Review

“South India Explorer Tour December 2019”

Written on: 21/12/2019 by LeeWendy (1 review written)

Visited India late November to 12 December 2019. Well organised tour with fantastic driver and guides. Unbelievable scenery and sights - almost too much at times to take in. Driver Kirishnan was a key factor for us - helpful and always trying to explain local customs and politics. Took us to see sights and experience good food along the way - thanks to him for that - he was almost like a full time guide. Would have liked to change the itinerary for more of a feel of older India and please… Read Full Review

“Kerala, a place of beauty & remarkable people ”

Written on: 13/12/2019 by PeterLeadbetter (1 review written)

Our Citrus Holidays Tour included the use for 7 days of a guide. He was utterly professional, warm & welcoming as well as being so knowledgeable & proud of his country & State. With our guide we visited coastal areas, a tea plantation high in the hills, stayed a night on a Houseboat & visited so many places of interest. He brought it all to life and explained the cultural background and history. He was a remarkably skilled driver on roads that, at times, appeared seriously challenging. W felt… Read Full Review

“Exceeded expectations”

Written on: 12/12/2019 by Masseyyl256 (1 review written)

Having just returned from Kerela, India all I can say is that it far exceeded my expectations. Extremely well organized and executed, our driver was amazing and flexible with great knowledge which was shared with us. Hotels were all very good with great helpful and friendly staff. The only comment I would make was that a visit to an Elephant Sanctuary would be better than paying to either wash/feed trained elephants - our group did not wish to do this so chose to not to. Tea plantations in… Read Full Review

“Kerala solo traveller ”

Written on: 04/12/2019 by Janetto63 (1 review written)

I have just returned from the 10 night/11day citrus tour, it was outstanding. Our driver, Kitten, knew the routes well, stopped along the way for photos and knew all the decent toilet stops! The scenery was gorgeous and the hotels, tours and food were excellent. We were not rushed and had time to explore on our own if we wished. As a group we had great fun. This was my first solo trip, it certainly won’t be my last. I will definitely be recommending Citrus… Read Full Review
