Jane organised a fantastic two week holiday for us in Southern India. We are a family of 6 with 4 boys aged between 5 and 13, she managed to find things to keep us all entertained. The home stays were excellent, as was our driver Bennett. Our itinerary kept us well of the beaten tourist trail, we felt as if we had really escaped. The ground staff in India looked after us extremely well, meeting us of the train with smiles and helpful tips.
Mr and Mrs E Woods – March 2020
Thank you for arranging our never to be forgotten trip to Tamil Nadu and The Andaman islands. Jess was our brilliant driver and guide, where we stayed in Pondicherry at La Villa and Chettinad at Visalam. both small and outstanding hotels. Moving onto the Andaman islands, what a wonderful beach holiday at Barefoot and Jalakara, both very special. All four hotels had excellent food and wonderfully trained staff.
Mr and Mrs P Mordaunt – March 2020
We Loved all our experiences, Yashvinder our driver was a calm influence on the roads and our guides were all experts in their areas. Five stars from us, we loved India!
Mr and Mrs J Frost – February 2020
We had a fabulous 3 weeks in South India with our four children. All the places we stayed at allowed us to experience authentic South India, with the wonderful generous people and stunning food! Highlight for us was our amazing driver Bennett, who became part of the trip and a source of information for the children. A great cultural family holiday, with a lovely balance of interest, experiences and relaxing in the sun.
Mr & Mrs P Hobley – January 2020
As this was our first trip to India, we thought it essential to put ourselves in the hands of an expert. We visited some of India’s best sights and were always accompanied by our trusted driver and excellent guides. Behind the everyday team we were aware of Points South’s man on the ground who oversaw our movements and stepped in to iron out any problems.
We would strongly encourage anyone interested in visiting India to discuss their plans with Jane, who provided an excellent service before during and after the trip.
Mr and Mrs T Woods – February 2020
From start to finish Jane could not have been more helpful in putting together this ‘Once in a Lifetime Holiday! The itinerary covered everything we wanted to do. The hotels were all fantastic and in great locations. The staff, drivers and guides were all incredible and couldn’t have been more helpful. Bennet our driver in South India was wonderful and went out of his way to look after us as did Ravi in the North.
The Hurrell family – July 2019
The entire 18 day trip was extremely well organised, with hotels carefully selected to meet the needs of our family of 4 teenagers, myself and my husband. From the beginning to end our tour was filled with adventures, experiences, unforgettable sights, animals and we were fortunate to meet the most humble, courteous and friendly people along the way. The ground staff and drivers were excellent all speaking a high level of English and allowing flexibility to meet our various needs! Jane’s knowledge of the different cities was excellent, enabling us to enjoy every moment of trip in a relaxed and fun filled life changing way.
The Goss family – April 2019
Jane, you are a star! What a holiday we have had! A brilliant itinerary of Rajasthan you created for us and which was perfect for all our needs in exploring India for the first time. Converted royal palaces, heritage properties, ancient forts, iconic hotels, excellent city guides, seeing wildlife, witnessing rural village life, experiencing varied means of transport (flights, trains, cars) and yet time to chill and fall in love with the people and their culture. Thank you for such a memorable trip. We shall be back!
Martin, Nicola and Charlie Hicks. April 2019
Swa swara (Ayurvedic retreat) in Karnataka provided exactly what we expected. The pace of the place slows you right down. I loved the (almost) absence of wi-fi, TV and phones. And the absence of children and families. Food was brilliant – I had three sessions in the kitchen. The massage was astonishing. Yoga at 07:00 for a beginner was a bit of a surprise on Day 1, but it has had such a beneficial effect that I have maintained the regime since returning, and intend to continue. The entire process took half a stone off me in a week, with no effort – simply sensible, managed eating and exercise. The swimming pool is as good as it gets. All told it was a powerful antidote to, and restorative from, a sometimes overly busy life here. Wouldn’t hesitate to warmly recommend.
Mr & Mrs Snipe- April 2019.
A fantastic three week holiday in Sri Lanka. different from what we expected but exceeded our expectations, what a beautiful country. The itinerary and organization were perfect.
Mr and Mrs Puxley- February 2019
The service and the people were faultless, very impressive customer service. We loved the whole trip of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, each place different with their own style. On the whole outstanding food, especially in the home stays and Maison Perumal in Pondicherry.
Mr & Mrs C Nevile – February 2019
We would like to say that you put together an incredible trip for us and that your attention to detail was second to none. The choice of hotels, excursions and restaurants were all excellent and information around other aspects, such as things to take, what to wear and tipping was very helpful.
Mr & Mrs Sellens, November 2018
Let Jane take the strain!
Just returned from a great trip to Sri Lanka and Jane Points and her Ground Agent in Sri Lanka could not have been more helpful. Her pre trip briefing notes and suggested itinerary ensured that we got the best out of our stay in this most engaging country. The drivers supplied were knowledgeable, friendly and very experienced. Jane’s suggested hotels fitted our requirements exactly. A big thank you.
Mr and Mrs I Thompson, July 2018
From the time that we were met at Chennai airport by Sanal, it was evident that Jane had organised a journey that had met both our need and expectations- in fact exceeded them! Our visit to Tamil Nadu and Kerala was a total success mostly thanks to Jane’s great knowledge of the area and thoughtfulness. We enjoyed a great mixture of culture with Tamil Nadu’s fascinating temples and amazing nature with the gentle beauty of Kerala. Our guide in Periyar Park was amazing.
Everywhere the people were exceptionally friendly and welcoming and we ate delicious food. Our driver Sanal was fantastic, always punctual, cheerful, and full of good ideas on what to do and where to eat. The whole experience was memorable enchanting and relaxing. Thank you.
Mr & Mrs G Henley-Price, March 2018.
Our trip to Karnataka and Kerala was an extraordinarily wonderful trip, plenty of variety to keep everyone happy (6 of us), we stayed in fabulous hotels and home stays.
The Southern Indian people are charming and gentle, and we were able to begin to understand their way of life.We had an excellent driver, Bennet, his mini bus became our second home! Jane was so helpful in helping us to plan our trip, she understood what we wanted from this holiday and completely delivered.
Mr & Mrs J Petty, March 2018
This was probably our best holiday-ever to Sri Lanka, brilliantly organised with a wonderful balance of history, culture & wildlife together with a relaxing stay on a lovely beach at the end.
Mr & Mrs T Sherston, January 2018
Thank you Jane for organising (and I quote from each member of the family) “the best holiday of our lives”. It was such a treasured holiday in Sri Lanka, for us all – you totally understood what we all needed. What more can i say, except a very, very big thank you from all of us.
The Gore Family, February 2017
We had a lovely two weeks in Kerala, very much because of Jane’s planning. For us, the idea of “home stays” is perfect, allowing us to meet local people – as well as like-minded visitors. But it does depend on knowing where to go and which to choose. Here Jane’s great expertise is what you need – partly, of course, to protect you from the vagaries of the internet!
