Japan – 2019
Hi Wendi, What a wonderful trip – possibly our best vacation ever!
The country is beautiful and clean and the people were very friendly and helpful. The tour guides were all excellent and our companions were delightful. The small group allowed us to do things that a larger group would find difficult, we are spoiled now. We may do more of these…….. Regards, Brian

Portugal and Spain – 2019
Dear Mr. Khanna,
We have returned from our recent trip to Portugal and Spain. We worked with Florence, from Above and Beyond Travel and Dinesh, from Tourcan Vacations to plan a customized adventure. The combined planning efforts of these travel agents provided us a wonderful experience filled with delightful memories. Dinesh established a detailed itinerary complete with contact information for all our hotels, tours, drivers and transportation details. This allowed us to have a wonderful overview of our holiday and easily meet each event filled day with delight-filled anticipation. Dinesh ‘s attention to arranging tours composed of varied experiences from incorporating locals, cooking and food experiences, nature and insight to the culture and history of each country was fabulous! He organized a variety of transportation between cities and countries, and seamless transfers to and from our carefully chosen hotels. Dinesh checked in with us regularly on our trip ensuring that all plans were unfolding on point. We couldn’t be happier with our experience and wish to offer our sincere gratitude to the travel team.

India Tour Amazing Trip! – 2018
Dear Shernaz and Vivek,
Please see the glowing review below:
Many thanks for helping organize our trip to India. It was truly amazing and wonderful. India is such a study in contrasts – old and new, uber-rich and impoverished, beautiful and sad, huge and tiny, ultra-fast and sultry slow. Mumbai and Kerala are fabulous places to visit. So vibrant and, despite challenges galore, people are hopeful.
And our arrangements were excellent! Thanks so much for putting this together. Thanks too for your help with ensuring a good experience on the day cruise at Periyar. Still not sure if recommend that, but we were pleased with the upper level view and the guides were informative. And we saw elephants, though from a great distance, but very nice.
We were very happy with the Swagatan staff. Our drivers, especially Mohan in Kerala who was with us for a week, were super. And the guides were really great.
John and I were so pleased that you arranged premium economy flights – we were singing your praises on the return flight in particular – we were so comfortable on this very long 15 1/2 hour journey.
Hope you’re well settled in back here in chilly Ottawa. Don’t know about you, but I’m missing the 30 degree temperatures very much!
Thanks again, Jennifer

India Tour – Nov – Dec 2017
This is my 3rd trip (big trips) with Tourcan, two out of 3 were arranged & organized by Ms Shernaz Writer. I would like to congratulate you with having such a knowledgeable, co-operative, professional & prompt person. Her time, effort & patience is highly appreciated by myself & my friends on our trip.
India Tour – Oct 2017
I can’t thank you enough for this experience. It was truly marvelous and the clients were all amazed and happy with the quality of service we received. I think they got every penny’s worth. You deserve to be commended for your hard work and total professionalism. You dealt with each and every tiny hiccup that came up – and we were blessed not to have any real issues.
On a personal note. Thank you for all my lovely birthday surprises – you sure know how to make a girl feel special. I love my vase and all the cakes etc. You really went overboard.
All the people that you use in India are exemplary. I would not have felt safe going any other way and I think I know have a real wealth of knowledge about India.

India Tour – Feb 2017
We’re back – safe, sound and still jet-lagged. Just a quick note to confirm that everything went off without a hitch. Our sightseeing drivers and guides couldn’t have been better and the vehicles (the same Toyota model in each location) were perfect for two person independent travel. Cars were very clean and bottled water was always available – and much appreciated. Our guide throughout the trip, Lakuma Chebrolu, was excellent. Lakuma is very well organized and very knowledgeable about the history of places we visited as well as the religious significance of the temples. The drivers (Sethu for the first part to Chennai, and Basha for the second part from Bengaluru onward) were very good and got us where we needed to go comfortably and on time. Transfers to and from airports was flawless and our departures were assisted – great service in each case and very helpful. Our hotel accommodations were very good to spectacular with Clarks Inn in Badami a notable exception as a much less attractive property. Clarks Inn is not really a negative in terms of our experience because, as our guide pointed out, it was the best available at that location, and it was required to serve the itinerary that I had chosen. To the other extreme, the Hotel Orange County in Badami, complete with a private pool, was stunning. Overall the tour was exactly what we asked for and everyone in India provided a high level of service that allowed us to enjoy a completely trouble-free experience.

India in January 2017
Hi Shernaz: I hope you are keeping well. I am writing to thank you for advising our tour guides on our trip to India in January’17 that I needed assistance. They were extremely helpful to me and were always there to help. I appreciated their assistance. The trip was fantastic and Judy and I had a great time. I will remember this trip for a long time to come. Thanks again.
India holiday in the Golden Triangle and Kerala 2017
Just returned from our 3 week India holiday in the Golden Triangle and Kerala. We had the most fantastic time! Everything went as planned. The drivers and guides were timely and informative. Special attention was given to my friend with a walking problem. Thanks to Tourcan Vacations and Shernaz for creating our very memorable holiday. I would not hesitate to book through them for another trip.
Thank you for the opportunity to experience the India educational trip. It was a great pleasure to meet you, your team, to learn more about TourCan and India. From the beginning with Shernaz helping with the India eVisa and making sure I had everything I could need, was such a pleasant experience. Then the way you were able to adjust the itinerary to fit when needed. Like adding the henna, extra shopping and changing the dinners around, was great to see how well connected you are. I’ve been telling many people about my trip, both personally and at work. I’m sure there will be bookings to follow as TourCan seems to have very high standards and reliability.
Barbara Mitchell – UNIGLOBE One Travel – Vancouver, B.C
I am amazed at this experience and it was like nothing I had expected. Everything far exceeded my expectations and every moment was a WOW moment. Thanks Vivek for this opportunity and I for sure will suggest and sell India and Tourcan with confidence in the future.
Krista Irvine | Travel Counsellor, LLB – Carlson Wagonlit Travel – Saskatoon, SK
Amazing!! I kept repeating these words throughout the trip and it truly does represent what I felt each day. I was excited about my first FAM trip but this one definitely surpassed any expectations I had of an educational tour as well as India. I have not stopped talking about it since I returned home. Everyone sees it in my eyes and a number are rethinking their views of India as a place to visit.
Cathy Mcdonald – Travel Professionals Internatiomal – Halifax. N.S.
Many kind thanks for your message, I have been on many fams – really good ones, but this was unquestionably the very best. Thank you and thank you to your team here in Canada and also on the ground in India. You gave us an incredible appreciation, and for me, a new appreciation of India.

India far exceeded my expectations also. The organization of Vivek, Dinesh and Tourcan have proved to me, that Tourcan are the only supplier for India and beyond! Vivek you said you wanted to show me India your way and indeed you did.

India – 2016
I kept putting off going to India; well I’m glad I did, because I was pleasantly surprised. Actually it exceeded my expectations. The architecture, the grounds, the rooms, the staff, the food, the welcome receptions, etc. at these TAJ and Oberoi hotels was amazing! Your country’s historic sites, palaces & temples we visited were impressive, and its colorful people added to the experience.

Vietnam and Cambodia 2014
I have been organizing a large incentive group for worldwide travel for the past 11 years. In that time I can honestly say that I have never experienced a level of superlative customer service, and focused attention to detail, from the beginning stages of planning through to the return of the group, as I enjoyed when I made the fortunate decision to hire Tourcan Vacations, and specifically Vivek, to help me create the best Vietnam and Cambodia itinerary. If you want to create a memorable group adventure, I highly recommend Vivek Khanna.

My husband and I have just returned from a cruise in South-east Asia with Oceania, which included tours organized with your company through our travelling companion and travel agent, Don Percy of Cruise Ship Centres, Ottawa. We loved the trip and all the tours through your company and affiliates. All of the guides were full of information, courteous, extremely friendly and attentive. From the information provided pre-cruise, to the experiences at each destination point, we couldn’t be happier. We would definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a top notch tour company. Congratulations and thank you.

Your company’s attention to detail and follow up is excellent … And a rarity! You have impressed the clients. Little things do mean a lot.
