  • FEEDBACK FOR AUGUST 2014

    Mr. Muthaiah Narayanan
    (14th August 2014 – 18th August 2014)

    It was indeed a great trip. 3 friends planned for the trip wanting to unwind ourselves from the busy work schedule. The holiday was planned for a while, it took almost 1 month for us to finalise the trip itenary after multiple discussions with Barefoot team at Chennai. The program was executed well by the ground team at Andamans. The staffs & drivers were very helpful and were available at any point in time. Twice during the journey, we forgot our baggage and the staff / driver reached them to us. The agency is very transparent on the facts (Check in / check out timings, Private ferry availability, Hotel positives & Negatives etc). The good thing is that Barefoot operates tours only to the Andaman and they are the real specialists. I would use the services of Barefoot for my next Andaman trip (if any) and would recommend to my friends and colleagues. It was a memorable trip and thanks to Barefoot for meeting our expectations. The staffs / driver very very co-opertaive and punctual (no time wasted). Thanks to you and your team for making our vacation a memorable one.

  • FEEDBACK FOR JULY 2014

    Mr. Sachhidanand Hegde
    (01st July – 05th July 2014)

    Firstly to start with the booking process, my experience with Barefoot Holidays was very convenient; the reservation staff was very patient to jot down my needs and tailor made a package based on my requirement. It was not only the reservation team but on landing the ground team lived up to the expectations as set by reservation team. Barefoot had handled all the transfers, right from the time our flight landed in Port Blair all the vehicles were on time, drivers professionals, there was just no hassle in any of the planned trips. Thanks to the entire team for making our holiday memorable forever. We will surely recommend Barefoot to our family and friends while they plan their Andamans trip.

    Mr. Deepak Chauhan
    ((02nd July – 06th July 2014)

    Amazing holiday experience and no words can explain the same. Travel plan was executed promptly as informed and drivers are more aware of the destination and are extremely friendly and the cars organized for transfers were very neat clean and are on time for the local city visit. Had a great holiday, thanks to your team who knows Andaman more than anymore else and are very passionate and helpful throughout our holiday.

    Mr. Ravichandran Murugan (07th July 2014 – 11th July 2014)

    The trip was one of my best trips, very well organized and every minute detail taken care off. Hats off to your professionalism. Karthik is a superstar, he makes you feel so comfortable and is very co-operative for all your needs. You guys have a fantastic team. I will definitely recommend Barefoot Holidays to all my friends for a fulfilled holiday in Andamans. Your drivers deserve a Special mention, very well trained and efficient. This trip would be in my memories for a lifetime.

    (10th July 2014 – 15th July 2014)

    Recently visited Andaman & Nicobar Islands with family for 5 days & 4 nights.The trip was organized by Barefoot Holidays. The entire tour was extremely pleasurable & I have no words to express the level of hospitality, punctuality & mannerism shown by each member of Barefoot team, be it at Chennai, be it at Port Blair or be it at Havelock.I have no hesitation in expressing my views, that I have never had such a memorable & courteous behavior from any of the Tour Operators. Everything was superb & whenever I will plan to visit Andamans & Nicobars, I will have single option to Contact Barefoot Holidays to re-organize my tour.

  • FEEDBACK FOR MAY 2014

    Mr. Rakesh Desai
    (17th May 2014 – 24th May 2014)

    Dear tripti/nadia/akshay and all, We are back from andaman . I must thank you we had wonderful holidays there. We are quite happy with all the arrangements you had made .Your staff particularly very nice and polite and cooperative especially driver salam,aditya,avinash, iqbal , karthik etc. I will definitively recommend your name in future to anyone willing to go to andaman from mumbai. However, I have a strong point to complain you regarding hotel barefoot at havelock . Since the choice of the hotel was ours , we do not held you responsible. The hotel is nice , room is also good and obviously the famous radha nagar beach !! You did mention to us about no TV and internet, cell phone. Till then it is acceptable , BUT NO INTERCOM facility in the hotel ??? For every small thing we have to go from the cottage to the reception??? To give you small example, the first day we arrived at the resort around 11.30 we reached , we were given rooms ONLY at 12.35 ! Till then we had to sit in the reception. After check in , I couldn't open safe and since there was no intercom , I just inform one hotel staff passing by to inform at the reception to send someone to open the safe , 20=25 mnts later no one came and then I had to inform another person passing by to send some one , after few minutes Mr.John appeared with some one and before anything he straight away tells me , "do not ask my person for anything , come to the reception !" and that too in harsh tone ! He must have some commen sense that person has just come from PB, so must be tired , instead of that he talked rudely . After that he couldn't solve the problem of safe, and just handed me key so physically I had to operate incase I need to. Next day morning , we observed that flush in WC was not working , stool was not being passed , so I inform him after going to the reception ,after I come back from scuba , the awful aster I got was " use the BUCKET and tumbler " IS THIS THE WAY TO ASWER ? INSTEAD ANYONE CAN EXPECT THE ASWER LIKE "WILL SEND SOMEONE TO REPAIR " . That was not enough , the same day in the evening , after I came back from beach , just had bath and just started my drink around 6.30 pm , and someone comes at the cottage asking me to go to the reception immediately , so I went there leaving my half drink , it was raining also , and to my surprise John called me just to inform me that my pick up was at 6.30 for next day scuba !! THIS HE COULD HAVE SEND ON PIECE OF SMALL PAPER WITH SOMEONE TO MY ROOM OR WAITED FOR ME TO BE TOLD AT THE DINNER TIME ? That particular moment I got frustrated and got really mad at him , people have come for relaxing in the resort and not to complain and to go to and fro from the cottage to the reception ? And that too in dark without any light , ? We also come across small snake on the pathway. isn't it dangerous not to have lighting on at least pathways ? Next day evening after I came back from my scuba dives , took rest , so decided to go the beach little late around 5.15 or so , when I approached him for towels, he rudely says NO POINT GOING TO BEACH THIS TIME ! Who the hell is he to tell us when to go and when not to ? In short Mr. John is very rude and arrogant and not suited to this place ,just to brief you about ourselves, we are hard core travelers , have travelled to entire far east, dubai, south africa, almost entire Europe, whole of USA , Canada with rockies and cruise, Maurititus, egypt, the whole of Australia , Hongkong macau, turkey in that order since 2003. Do not want to prove a point but we have stayed in Fairmont at lake lieu , the palace at sun city and marina bay at singapore , costing around $ 500 to 600 a night , but no where we have seen such behavior and that too after paying Rs. 12000 a night ?? This was not expected. Yes at the same time, food at the hotel was excellent and restaurant staff was also very good and very professional. No complain about that. I am really surprised why not to have just intercom facility at the hotel? I came across three couples with children, we all checked in at the same time, they also had big problem in commuting among themselves, how you expect group of people to convey anything. Especially in absensse of cell net work?? Sorry if you feel harsh about the same , but at this rate , staying at barefoot not worth unless it has either intercom facility OR cell net work & TV and I am sure if these things are provided it would be the best resort in havelock .

    Mr. Neeraj Kataria
    (30th May 2014 – 05th June 2014)

    Hello Team - Thanks for the below email. We enjoyed our vacation and it was great experiece with Barefoot Holidays but there are few points that i will like to share:- 1. On the first day during check-in to TSG Emerald View Port Blair, there were no premium rooms available as per itinerary, there was no Wifi working during our entire stay at this property. On the last day while recheck-in to hotel the rooms were not ready and we had to wait in lobby till the rooms were ready. 2. There were many problems faced with Holiday inn resort in Havelock, the AC's of half our cottages were not working, there were so many insects and the cottages were not cleaned on regular basis. The resort staff was not co-operative neither supportive. Inspite of booking 3 Cars in havelock we got only 2 cars for the first 2 days and after reporting the things to Chennai office they were in place. 3. The name of Contact person in Havelock as per itinerary was Mr. Aditya but when we called him he said to talk to Mr. karthik. We called Mr.karthik twice and he told us to wait for his call back but he was not even concerned to ask the problem till next day and at last we had to call reservation office. So overall the stay in Port Blair was very comfortable and i would like to appreciate the staff at Port blair for their quality service. The experience in havelock was not good. I would like to thank Barefoot holidays for arranging the entire trip to Andaman and Nicobar islands. Regards, Neeraj.

  • FEEDBACK FOR APRIL 2013

    Ms. M.S Ashvini
    (Date of Stay- 03rd April, 2013 to 08thApril, 2013)

    Barefoot team, We had done our Andaman holiday booking through you for our trip in April 1st week. We are back from the tour and I must say that I am pretty impressed with your arrangements. We were a group of 3 families travelling together. Right from the reception at the Port Blair airport to the farewell, all your arrangements you’re perfect. Everything was on-time and very professional. Taking us to your BnB 'NEST' at Port Blair for a quick freshening up was a good gesture. So was providing some refreshments for our Ferry ride to Havelock. All the day trips in Havelock were fantastic. Barefoot Scuba team that took care of the South Button trip was just perfect.

    The entire experience was unforgettable. In Port Blair when one of our friends needed urgent medical attention, you arranged for a vehicle for him to be taken to hospital. Thank you for that. Special thanks to Karthik for being wise and courteous.

    Since we couldn't visit the cellular jail on Sunday as planned, you made special arrangements for us to visit it on last day morning. That was nice too. All of us would like to mention how lovely your staff has been. Each and everyone have been pleasant and courteous when interacting with us. they were helpful and informative. Please convey our thanks to Abhinav, Girish (or Harish?), Shaun and a very special thanks to Karthik in Port Blair. Mike and David in our South button trip were wonderful too.

    You guys made our trip memorable. Our friend Sudhir is already recommending your agency to his gang of doctor friends and they might Contact you soon. Let me know if you guys arrange tours in other parts of the country too, I would be interested.

    Thank you. Please pass on this email to your Port Blair and Havelock team too.

    Thank you for all the arrangements in Andaman. We had an amazing holiday. All the folks were very helpful. Specially Avinash, Rajesh in Port Blair and Shaun in Havelock.Once again thanks for all the hospitality.

  • FEEDBACK FOR MARCH 2013

    Ms. Christina George
    (Date of Stay- 24 March, 2013 to 28 March, 2013)

    Thanks for everything. We had a good time. We had a tough time with the trip out to havelock, everything else was smooth. We would like to especially thank Shaun, Emma and Joshua -snorkeling and diving. TSG blue scored on location more than anything. The barefoot brasserie was a treat too. The booking process was tough, I wonder if something can be done about that.

    Thanks, Christina

    Hi Team, We had a great holiday experience with Barefoot. The arrangements made were excellent and also the drivers / tour managers were very friendly and helpful. Keep up the good work!!

    Ms. Srividhya Ganesh- Booking Name: Ms. Malini Ganesh
    (Date of Stay- 27th March, 2013 to 31st March, 2013))

    This is a feedback to barefoot after the wonderful holiday that we had in Havelock Islands. First of all, we would like to thank you for organizing the wonderful holiday and also for being available to smooth out the small hitches that occur every now and then in any travel plan. Our thanks also to Mr. Abhinav and Mr. Kathick for the hospitality and concern they showed during our brief stay at Port Blair. It was very thoughtful of Mr. Abhinav to give us a snack bag when we were boarding the ferry to Havelock. And given the short notice that we gave them, they organized a visit to the Light and Sound show at the Cellular jail in a very efficient manner

    Regarding the PADI scuba diving course that my daughter Malini had enrolled for there was some miscommunication due to which we were informed the day before we left that she could not be accommodated for the course. My thanks to Chandini at Havelock for understanding the situation and accommodating her as graciously as possible.

    Our only suggestion to make the holidays even better: the time gap between the check out time at TSB Blue, where we stayed, and the Makruzz ferry, should be looked into. Although we were told that the resort normally allows us to stay till noon at least, even though the check out time is 8 Am., we were not given a definite confirmation by the resort till ten in the morning. By which time we thought we had to vacate the room at ten and hence could not plan any activity for the day. Later on we were told we could stay till 2. Even if we are charged for the last day at half rate or something, it will help to plan your time more efficiently, if we have an advance notice or definite time frame.

    Thanks again for the wonderful holiday and the memories that we will always cherish
