      We recently did the night kayaking trip with Tanaz in Havelock and I have no words to describe the experience.. Happened to randomly click a link which led me to the Great Next and boy am I glad it did! I was always obsessed with watching bioluminscent plankton and had done lots of research on it before going to Maldives but people said it was too rare a phenomenon to be confirmed. However, here maybe thanks to the mangroves or Tanaz's love for the bioluminescence, we found them here in abundance.. I was so skeptical at first when they said you will most definitely see it coz I had heard such opposite feedback from other places in the past, but they are absolutely right.. We saw the bioluminescence throughout our kayaking trip and it was definitely one of our best experiences in life! Please trust the Great Next and Tanaz blindly in organising this trip for you and I assure you you will not be disappointed.. Tanaz only plans this trip during specific time periods to make sure everyone sees this magical phenomenon so be sure to trust her dates and just go with it!

      '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!!'

      I went with my cousins and it was last minute planning to kolad river rafting and we were trying to book rooms and package according to our budget and it was difficult for us to book since all the rooms were occupied since it was weekend and finally when I got through 'The Great Next' I got a good package with good food and place to stay @ Hans Adventure resort and Urja parmar and Chitra prabhu guided and helped me . Urja was very proactive and offered me good discount. We reached late due to climatic and road conditions and yet she held on the booking and was very understanding. @Urja Thanks a lot guys :-)We really enjoyed the trip :-)
