My experience with Brahmand Tour was great from our first email to the end of ths trip. They created a trip based on my time line and other circumstances. I found the trip incredibly organized. Staff were skilled and my wellbeing was important.
There were no problems on my 8 day trip and if there were I believe they would be well managed. I found the scenery impressive and roads thrilling. I recommend traveling by motorbike and using this company.

Some trips are planned and some are spontaneous. Brahmand tour made my planned trip to a spontaneous adventure one. Being a solo traveller since last 5-6 years, I chose Brahmand Tour from the online query lot and it paid off big time.
The biking group was a mixed crowd of first time riders, travellers as well as tourists. It's amazing to realise that a 10 days trip with Brahmand Tour catered to all those expectations. The timing of the trip was weather perfect and the trip itinerary was created meticulously. The accomodation ( hotels and camp site in Chadrataal) with the flavoursome food was cherry on the cake. The Road Captain Sanjeev took his own sweet time to mingle with the group carving his leadership and friendship impact on lifetime memories. The back up support (Suresh and Rahul) were friendly and swift in bike maintenance.
Thank you Brahmand Tour for all your efforts in services. Would definately recommend your services.
We had a motorbike trip organized by brahmand (rajesh) from manali-leh-panggong tso. before that brahmand also arranged a day tour to agra and new dehli. we did some changes along the way and rajesh adjusted our trp plans smoothly. we thoroughly enjoyed our trip of a lifetime. thanks brahmand.
Mr. Tai C T
The views are breathtaking and the Ladakhi culture (similar to the Tibetan culture) deserves to be explored.
The tour could be a bit challenging because it requires some motorbike driving experience on the alpine passes or on the off-road paths and adaptability when facing climatic and unexpected adversities, as well as good physical preparation.
Brahmand Tour has made this journey light and pleasant, planning everything in detail, from acclimatization to Indian and Ladakhi food, and has ensured continuous mechanical, medical and bureaucratic assistance. The accommodations were good and welcoming, often surrounded by marvelous landscapes (sand dunes, shimmering lakes, snowcapped mountains and glaciers).
Basic services were also guaranteed when we slept in tents at high altitudes under the stars, the last night.
Rajesh Thakur is professional, courteous and attentive to the needs of the customers and their well-being: he is responsible and takes care of getting the group to the destination in the best possible way ... He is scrupulous and nothing escapes him.
He is cheerful and always available: in his company you feel treated like a friend and not like a client.

Rajesh and Sanjeev made sure I had an excellent experience riding bikes with my father. In addition, their mechanic Ashock is very competent. You will be in good hands with them!

BEST COMPANY FOR COMPLEX CUSTOMIZED TOURS
While planning our trip to Himachal Pradesh and India's Golden Triangle I thoroughly searched the internet to find a reliable tourist organization specialized in customizing tours with car and driver and selected the three with the best reviews.
I then starting exchanging emails with these companies to get estimates for our planned itinerary and needs and BrahmaND TOUR was the only company which was able to offere us exactly what we needed. I exchanged several emails with one of the owners, Sanjeev Jaswal, which not only was always courteous and knowledgeable, but also replied super-quickly to all my emails. We decided to book the tour and wired them a deposit in the amount of the 50% of the estimated price and immediately got the name and cell number of the driver that would have been with us, the type of car, its registration number/plate and other details. This detail definitely put us at ease but what we appreciated the most was the continue communication occurred till the very end of the journey. Our driver (Rajesh Kumar +91 95604 96401) which specializes in Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, speaks a good English, is reliable, honest, extremely patient and knowledgeable. During the whole journey he constantly provided us with a lot of attention and did even the impossible to accommodate even the most weird of our requests. Another detail that we liked a lot was that one of the company's owner, Rajesh Thakur took the time to meet with us to make sure that everything was going well. Everything was amazing, and our driver, Rajesh Kumar was fantastic. BrahmaND TOUR was the only company among the ones I contacted that catered to every need, produced an itinerary that suited our time frame and interests. The bottom line is: I highly recommend BrahmaND TOUR and Rajesh as a driver.
