"When 6 of us flew out of Kuwait for the Char Dham yatra we each had our own expectations of what we would find on this journey. The Heritage Aviation team arranged a truly divine sojourn for us in the Land of the Gods. From our car drivers to our local guides; from our helicopter pilots to the owner Mr Mathur, not to forget the cooks who catered to our every whim ... everyone made us feel pampered and safe. Thank you for taking natures vagaries and our tantrums in stride and giving us back memories of a lifetime."

"After living so long in the Dubai for the last 40 years, our thought of visiting India again was really exciting and it was most enjoyable that we were among the other nine like-minded devotees who made us feel like old friends whom we had come to India to visit. All the services of Heritage Aviation were excellent with good meals, accommodations and specially blessed with Darshan throughout the entire journey."
