      Camping arrangement was pathetic. Food provided was bad. Dirty bed sheets and washrooms. No activities planned. Promised for 11km rafting track but provided only 4-5 Km without pick & drop.

      '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'

      My experience was bad. We wanted to do rafting after coming back from trek. I did a booking for rafting through The Great Next and the itinerary was not clearly communicated and was left to us to 'figure out'. We were given camp majestic. The staff here is completely unprofessional. We were wondering what is the action plan for rafting and when we asked late at night, we were surprised to hear that we had to bear an additional cost of transport to the starting point(based on my earlier communication with TGN my understanding was there was no transportation required). We tried probing for more details on itinery and only then we were being told about details. One of my friend had requested for custom food because of cultural constraints quite early in the evening for dinner. At dinner time that was conveniently forgotten. The dinner was served late at 9:45 pm (scheduled time was 8 pm). In short completely unprofessional. If you want to do rafting go book a nice hotel independently and just directly go for rafting. No need to go with TGN. Save your money and time.

      TGN has a very sophisticated and concise web page along with many optional details and information. This is one of the few sites that provides information about the operator. All the operators they recommend are safe, well-trained and reliable. They are easily accessible and offer reasonable deals. I've booked a trekking and river rafting trip with them already, and it was a very good experience. I'll always choose The Great Next to plan my adventure trips.

      I heartly Thank Venkat for making our trip awesome. We were six and had used this platform to book the tickets for River rafting and Venkat had arranged an awesome dome house(Tent house). He had offered us a good package which include few adventure activities as well as stay and food. We enjoyed a lot and planning for next visit soon. He was there to guide us even in the night around 9 which I liked the most.
