It was really fun with kids and family, lot of water activity and good places to see. Never thought that Andaman is so beautiful. It is safe, tranquil, and full of awesome beaches, amazing sightseeing and adventures. Try lip smacking local crab and sea food. Believe me, there are lots of beaches in India, but Andaman is BEST. I fall in love with the nature and tranquillity here. Will visit again.
Andaman was always one of my dream destinations, and it became reality when I booked the package from naturewings. We travelled a lot with them before also. So there was 100% expectations from the team and they proved it. Hotels, transportation, food was perfect. I want to give special thanx to Ritu and Dev kumar for constant monitoring and coordinating with us. Great Team. Hats off to them.
Sorry for the delay in reply. I was stuck up with few things and hence couldn't revert back. Firstly, I would like to mention that the Andaman trip was a fantastic. We were very happy with the accommodation, the hotel staff and hospitality. Secondly, the car and the cruise which was arranged for the island trip was fantastic. We did lots of water activities like water jet ride, banana boat ride and scuba diving in the Havelock Island. The beaches are awesome, clean and the big thing – less crowed. Food was awesome and a big Kudos to Dev and Ritu for continuous contact. It was really an amazing trip. We would like to travel with naturewings again 👍
Thanks to Dev and Sandips effort, my Andaman trip was a supper success. As being an aged guy and a professor I was very much interested in history of Andaman rather that the beach exploration. My visit to cellular jail was overwhelming and I became very emotional also when I touch the wall, the bricks, the pillars, the cage and of course the special condemned cell for the prisoners sentenced to death. It gave me goosebumps and an eerie feeling when I saw the hanging chamber. God knows how many brave heroes and freedom fighters were hanged from here, how many were thrown to sea after death by hanging. Not a little respect was shown to them.
Later in the evening I saw the magnificent light and sound show. I spend total 6 days in the Andaman and visited some other islands and beaches also. It was a good arrangement by Sandip and his team. Big thanks for them for taking care this aged person so passionately during entire trip.
