Sohit Satpute

After looking at several options I choose Go4Explore for my Himachal Backpacking trip. Reason was the itinerary they provided (Manali, Kasol and Jibhi) with the pricing. Firstly I was skeptical about hotels they will provide in the pricing, but the provided hotels and homestays were amazing. They were strategically selected homestays due to its location. I would recommend Go4Explore for Himachal Trips. Ask for Group Leader: Aaryan Verma, he is a gem of a guy.

Satyam Srivastava

Many thanks for making such a trip possible. The organization, the effectiveness, the planning and on top the driver were just perfect. I felt so comfortable despite being so far from home. Everything worked out in time and perfectly. Our captain (Sahil Yadav) is a man of heart, he was always on his toes to assist and provide the best hospitality. The hotel we stayed at was always clean. I will definitely recommend Go4Explore to my other friends as well. Big thanks to Amit sir, who always helped for every possible difficulty.

Swathi Rai

Went for their Spiti Valley full circuit trip last week and loved it. The trip itinerary was well curated to make sure we get the most of all the places. Our trip lead - Nikhilesh was well experienced and made sure we don't miss out on anything throughout the trip. The driver was also well experienced. All the stays and food were also managed well. Made some really great memories and friends on this trip and these will be cherished forever. Would also like to point out that we did bump into other groups throughout the trip and came to know that our group covered all of the places mentioned in the itinerary while some others didn't. So I would definitely recommend and also prefer traveling with the Go4Explore community for the best experience.

Kavish Goyal

It was my first trip with a travel community and I found Go4Explore through Instagram recommendations. I went to Tirthan Valley & Jibhi with Go4Explore. I only had expectations that the accommodation and transportation would be arranged but in actuality it was beyond my expectations. I had a great time with Go4Explore. Everything was very well arranged. We stayed in No Society Homestays which is an amazing place with an amazing vibe. Our trip was led by Sahil Singh who is an amazing trip leader cum friend. He made our trip even more fun. I'd recommend everyone to plan their trip with Go4Explore without even a second thought. Looking forward to more trips.

It was my first trip with Go4Explore, Location: Chopta, Tungnath, Chandrashila, Deoria Lake. It was the best memory I've ever got till now which I'll cherish my whole life. Everything was pre-planned and managed accordingly. Captain (Nishant) and Co-Captain(Sabrina) were really supportive and helpful. Group was truly amazing. As a whole, Nothing can be better than this. I'll definitely look forward to booking my upcoming trips with the same team.

Aishani Verma

My first solo trip to Spiti was with Go4explore and has been one of the best trips that happened to me. This trip made me see how much fun it can be with strangers who become like your family by the end of the trip. All this wouldn't have been possible without Sahil Singh who ensured that everyone had fun at every step with utmost care and comfort. I decided to take my second road trip with this community as their itineraries are very well planned and executed. My Ladakh trip was a lot of fun as I met and bonded with a lot of like-minded people. Our young and amazing trip leaders Rahul and Nikhilesh made everything very comfortable from day 1 till the end of the trip and all of them made it the most memorable trip to Ladakh.
