What do our members say

  • LOLITA ROY My husband Bijoy and I joined this group for our first trip with 50 + Voyagers to Sri Lanka. Well, to come to the point directly, we are so glad we found this traveller's club on FB ! Everything went as per plan and expectatipns, on our trip to Sri Lanka thanks to the untiring efforts and caring ways of the Tour Guide and Leader. Kudos to 50+ Voyagers for giving the elderly citizens, often single too, this avenue to travel and explore in conditions best suited to their age and stage in life. We wish 50+ the very best for the future. May that grow from strength to strength. Needless to say, we hope to join them on many more exciting and enjoyable trips in the future.
  • Anjana Nair My mom went on the recent trip to Bhutan in Oct and hasn't been able to stop raving about it.. we were all skeptical if she'd be able to enjoy with a group of unknown strangers and also travel much since she has knee trouble but the end experience was wonderful to say the least! She has come back with child like glee on the fun she had with the group and of exploring beautiful Bhutan.. I would strongly recommend this to all those above 50 who have a passion for travelling and believe there is no age limit to having fun and discovering the world! Great going team 50+ voyagers .. I'm sure my mum is looking forward to her next trip already!
  • Usha Archana This club gave me one of my best holidays with the recent Rajasthan Trip. It was a great experience traveling with people of ages 52 - 82, who came from different corners of India. Most of us were meeting each other for the first time in our lives, yet, by the end of the tour, it felt like we were all from one family. The club offers a wonderful opportunity for like-minded senior citizens to holiday together safely, comfortably and enjoyably at a reasonable cost!
  • RANJI KURUVILA Enjoyed the Ladakh trip immensely. The visit points were wisely chosen, the whole tour was well paced and all the arrangements were very nicely organised by 50+ Voyagers. Will definitely recommend you to my friends and will join you on another trip sometime next year. Congratulations and a big thank you.
  • Chitra Warrier Just returned from an amazing trip of Saurashtra. This dream come true would not have happened but for 50+. We met as strangers, 15 of us and left as friends. Leave those fears and apprehensions back and take that step to see this beautiful country with 50+. I do not know of anyone else who can plan and execute to near perfection a tour specially for the 50 plus group. Hats off to you Sangita and team.
