    Situated along the banks of the Pawna lake – over 2 days you’ll embark on treks, enjoy some fishing and try your hand at many camp games like volleyball, cricket, carom or cards. In the evening you’ll have the typical camp experience of surrounding a bonfire, roasting a BBQ and dancing to music; and at night you’ll huddle in your tents and sleep under a blanket of stars.

    A great way to unwind and rejuvenate – this camping experience gives you the much needed peace far away from the hassles of everyday life.

      I would describe their team as driven, enthusiastic and initiative bearing. Once I reached out to them for a camping trip, I was connected to one of their coordinators, Dheeraj Soni, who gave me multiple options, understood my requirement and timeline and suggested the perfect fit for us. They maintained effective communication with us and camp personal to ensure that we had a wonderful experience. I would certainly reach out to them for any future plans.

      'Got to about TGN through Google, when I was looking for a professional tour operator to arrange a river rafting experience for a corporate group of ~100 pax, at Kolad. I got contacted by Mr. Venkat and his approach to handle the customer was way different than that of others with whom I was interacting at that point in time (Sept 2017). He seemed to be genuinely interested to provide the best experience rather than just doing the business and close the deal. He offered me couple of options ranging from mid-range to lux; and provided enough details that can be passed on to the group. He was prompt in handling & answering queries and one thing that really impressed me is the backup person he has arranged to answer queries, if he isn't available; even before the deal was closed. I chose him because of all these reasons... let me reiterate, I chose TGN because of the thorough pro Venkat has been with me. Besides lodging & boarding, I booked the rafts and guide, and the transportation from Pune to Kolad... so it was a package deal, and as any one can think, with a group of that size some changes are bound to happen - starting with transport ... he showed immense flexibility to split the transportation in just one day notice... which does got accolades from my team. Even at the rafting point, the group size changed from what we committed and just a phone call to him early morning was good enough for the rafting operator to arrange a brand new raft (which got unpacked and inflated right infront of us) to accommodate 8 members. Food and other arrangement at the resort: Food was pretty good... the resort provided piping hot chapatis, and food was lip smacking! Activities at the resort too was amazing despite heavy rains the resort arranged zip line for the group... One feedback: quality of buses could have been better. Overall a very satisfactory arrangement. Would recommend it anytime!!'

      'On behalf of me & my friends I would want to take a moment to express my sense of gratitude and appreciation for team TGN. I planned an adventure trip to Rishikesh which happened to be a wonderful experience. I thank Mr. Venkat who I feel is an important asset to the company for planning and organising the entire trip. His excellency in managing customer relationship is truly commendable which plays a vital role in bringing business to any enterprise. Definitely looking for more such plans with team TGN in future. All the best'

      'Let me begin by saying: One Must Experience Kolad White Water Rafting , it is super fun and now if you are ready for the fun.. you must ask these guys to plan the trip. Why ?? Let Me tell you... We have been to Kolad now twice and both times used The Great Next to book the rafting and also a night stay. So first thing first, the accommodation they provide, is i would say is pretty good. Well, after all your there for adventure and one can't expect a five star luxury: so rooms are neat and clean, Bathrooms are also tidy. The biggest benefit of this accommodation is the fact, that it is right at the starting point of rafting, so you can easily wake up say by 8 AM, enjoy breakfast ( good food) , enjoy morning sun with some out door activities and get briefed and trained and then ... hop onto life's thrill. The place they book you in is good a few acre property, they organize Bonfire and food is included in the package. ( this time around , the food was awesome ) Price: Very Very Reasonable and Value for Money 100% Ease of Booking: Pretty Simple, inbox em, or just log onto their website, a chat applet will help you book. I for both times booked via a gentleman named Mr. Venkat, really helpful and suggested us the right mix always. How to Reach: Take the tahmini ghat via Pirangut ( if traveling from Pune) and If from Mumbai, you need to take Khopoli _pali road SH 92 via Umbre. Well the place we stayed on both occasions was same and really simple to reach, in case you find it difficult to spot, they are really prompt to help and guide over the phone. Experience : If you are first-timer at Rafting then, it is for sure thrill and if Pro rafter then your exp depends on Dam gates.So, If more than 2 Dam gates are open on that particular morning, then boy you will have one exhilarating ride and if it is one or 1.5 gates, still rapids are good fun to get in and get drenched. All in All 4/5 experience. but for beginners A MUST !! Have fun and in case you any question you can ask me on Insta FB Page : Collared Hippie or my Insta ID : @collaredhippie.'

      'Stress, work life balance and the chaos and the need to take respite from it - and so began the search, the need to escape from it all. So some quick search landed me up with the great next , and came across Rahul and Venkat. A silent retreat far away from the din of Mumbai, Kolad is one of the perfect weekend gateway. As you step in DM Farms, the earthly traditional cottages touch you. Its staff always come up with handful of sweets at end of every meal. They also made arrangements for bon fire , which was an added attraction and set up the mood perfectly for the night. Accompanied with musical chair. The rafting was conducted professionally and is a beautiful experience to be remembered lifetime. I went solo, however, came back making lovely friends.'

      We took their service in Oct 17 for Rafting in Kolad. Came across their details while randomly looking for adventure groups. Once we contacted them, they co-ordinated with Hans Adventure resort for our stay and activities. Stay and food was good. Rafting was also arranged well. Recommended group �

      'I wish i could have rated them zero but sadly there is no option for that.so i have booked this so called luxury tent stay with rafting for 8pax in kolad. Once we reached the rafting point (Daivya adventures) the staff over there was clueless about the booking from great next and clearly refused to 12-13 people who have booked through the great next, there was no network at that place even to contact anyone from the TGN team. We had wasted around 3-4 hours in this confusion and at last was sent without any proper briefing/ equipments and a novice kinnda raft instructor. It was a waste of Money and time. I will never recommend anyone to try this. Even the customer support is very bad. Vrushti was the one who sold me the package and never reverted after the problem. #waste #poorcustomersupport #tryotheroptions #bignono'

      Dheeraj was very helpful in providing us the best option. The camp was amazing, more than what I was hoping for. There was only one issue that the resort didn’t receive any confirmation of our booking yet the owner of Gurugram resort was so nice that he didn’t let us suffer and provided us with best service.

      It was an impulsive decision to plan for Kolad river rafting and we were really struggling to get the booking done over the long weekend. However, it was a random search that we came across TGN and the coordinator Rahul ,was really helpful with the booking at daivya adventures with group discount . Would really appreciate the coordination, responsiveness and the process they follow . River rafting experience was really amazing and we are truly contented !Looking forward for future adventures with tgn! Cheerz !

      'Frankly speaking, I was a little worried when I chose TGN for my corporate offsite because my personal experience with TGN was not so great when I went to Kolad for River rafting. However, Venkat and Varun handled our corporate offsite very well. We were 57 employees altogether who stayed at Nature Trails. They had decent tents where you can stay the night. I was quite demanding and I requested extra meals and activities which were not part of the regular package and TGN managed it very well. TGN response time for queries was very good. DJ (Prem) understood our music taste and everyone was energized and dancing throughout. We enjoyed the sumptuous Maharashtrian cuisine. The fish and Chicken were amazing. Both Nature Trails and Daivya Adventures were very focused on safety during the adventure activities. Overall, I would like to say that this is a great place for Team Building activities and I would recommend this place.'

      'It was a Great Team Outing with The Great Next. Mr. Amit Thakker from TGN suggested and help us (group 23 teammates from SMARTe) book a day trip to ZBAC Adventure, Kolad recently. TGN not only helped us with various options considering proximity, budget and activities we wanted to do but also help us choose the best place. Team TGN is very prompt in responding to our communications and made sure the arrangements were apt. Thanks TGN!'

      'Precap: We, a team of 15 people were planning for an overnight trip to Kolad, I had looked out few options but was uncertain, there was nothing I could pin point to. While surfing, I came across TGN website, going through I came in contact with Venkat. He answered all my queries and his suggestions were quite helpful. Travel: The campsite where we stayed was fantastic, the arrangements, the food, hospitality, in-house activities, all were taken care of. We had one hell of a time during our stay. Everyone enjoyed the activities that were lined up with the stay and went for rafting the other day, and I can say, our experience was a fun filled thrill ride along with awesomeness of the place.

I was in regular contact with Venkat with almost 2 weeks before the trip and each time we two talked, he was patient and helpful at each and every stage of the planning. There are no cellphone n/w's in Kolad, he advised us to download offline map of the city and provided pointed map locations of our stay and the rafting meeting and end point which turned out to be helpful. I was briefed about our plan including each and every small details, these things helps you build trust. And the prices, they always manage to give u best quote which you cannot say no to. Keep up guys, thanks to Venkat and TGN guys working in background to make this possible. Every effort building this appreciated.'
