Great experience and unforgettable memories! Everything was well planned. We did whole lot activities in Andaman specially Scuba Diving was the best of all. Sound and Light Show at jail was very good and we came to know about some historic facts about the place. Stay was very comfortable and in decent hotels. Totally an amazing experience.

A complete package to cover the best parts of such a beautiful island at a reasonable price. Ours was a honeymoon trip and both of us had a great time. The guide with us was really helpful and we did not have to face any problems during the whole trip. There are good hotels also at all places where you can have good food from. The stay arranged by them was also good.

A short trip but peaceful one. You can see a lot of colourful birds and relax by the beach of Chidiyatapu. Also the sunset views from the beach should be watched.

We have covered a lot of islands and each one of them gave us a bag full of good memories. Such a photographic place. I have a huge album with only Andaman pictures now. Neil Island is quite different and the sunset views from the different beaches were different. Each day was becoming so special to me as each day has something different from the previous day. I had my family with me and we went during the summer time so the heat was at times scorching but the breeze from the oceans all the time did not make us feel tired. Also, it should be mentioned that the hotels and resorts we have stayed offered us a good service and a pleasant view of the ocean was in front of our eyes every morning. The well-maintained beaches and the crystal clear water have amused us so much. I am looking forward to have similar package with much more adventurous activities in it from Thrillophilia.

I am recollecting all the memories I had from Andamans now. This six day package was really awesome and I could explore all the major attractions the island has within it. The snorkelling session at Elephant Beach was something I cannot forget. Though I have tried adventurous activities couple of time before, this one got attached to my heart. May be because of the colourful sights I found through the crystal clear water. Along with this, I should comment on the stay and the food they have provided me. Though I am not very strict when it comes to food and stay, I liked almost all the hotels. In short, I would say that I thoroughly enjoyed the package.

I came to know about this tour package through my friends who have already tried other similar packages from Thrillophilia. I have decided to go to Andamans alone as I am a freelancer. After visiting Andamans, I became extremely happy and from the bottom of my heart I suggest my friends to visit Andamans once in your lifetime. The moments you can create would never fade away. As a solo woman traveller, I had a lot of questions in my mind. But the guides, the people I met during the tour, the hotel people etc helped me a lot. The precious blue water always cuddled by the green surroundings remains in my heart, so clear and intact.

Wanted to visit the famous Cellular Jail in Andaman with a proper guide so that I could get to know the history properly. I searched online and found this tour. Went for it because it was reasonably priced. It was a great experience. Was picked up at the right time and transported in a clean and comfortable vehicle with my friends, and dropped off at my hotel at the right time too. The guide, Manu was very knowledgeable and the light and sound show (English) was interesting and pretty. Highly recommend this tour by Thrillophilia if you want to have a good experience of cellular jail.

I did not think that the celluar jail needed a guided tour but my friends (was travelling with them), insisted. So we went for this package. It was amazing. The guide really knew a lot about the island and the history of the jail. He was very easy to understand and interesting to listen to. (fun aside: I also saw other people without guides trying to hear what he was saying about the jail because he made the experience totally different). The transport facilities were great too, smooth, on time and clean. Highly recommended tour.

Ross Island and Chidiyatapu visit was one of the tours we tried during our honeymoon trip in the island and we had a good time and happy to see those ancient buildings which have a lot of history with them. But the ruins tell a lot about those dark times of India. For those who love to know history, Ross Island can be a good choice. I liked the time we spent in Chidiyatapu more. When the sun sets, the blue water of the ocean just turns to become a multicoloured liquid. We had a great refreshing time there.
