I went with #muddietrails on a trip to Agumbe and this was my first trip along with complete strangers to an unknown place. I had read the reviews about #muddietrails before I registered with these guys and was pretty convinced these are a good bunch of people who will organise things properly.Almost needless to say, the trip and the trek was extremely fun and very well organized. The bunch of people I trekked and stayed with were fun to hangout with and were extremely helpful and kind all round the trip and trek.While we started the journey from Bangalore, the bus that we had to board was delayed because of some reason and to compensate for that, the organisers booked cabs to a common spot where all could board at the same time in order to save sometime. Along with that, during the journey, the bus driver (was his first time as well I guess with #muddietrails) had some altercations with the organiser, but they handled the situation pretty maturely without causing any inconvenience to the people.While on this trip, I realized there were many people who had been to various places along with #muddietrails, so you can understand how much these guys trust #muddietrails.Some things you'll need to take care about is #muddietrails would ensure you enjoy the trip thoroughly but please do not expect luxury while staying and trekking.A big thanks to Surya Patel, the organiser who had been with us for this trip for making the trip a really enjoyable one. - by Jobin George for Monsoon special - The Agumbe Rainforest Camping | Muddie Trails .

The guide Rakesh Ranjan, was inexperienced ,lacked leadership quality, and most of all was physically unfit for the role of a trek guide. To begin with, the schedules bus pickup was at 6pm, I understand it was raining, but he reached 1 hour late, didn't share bus location inspite of repeated request by multiple people, as a result we were not able to locate the bus, and the bus started 1hr 15 min late.All pickups were only done by 10:30 and all people were extremely hungry but Rakesh stopped the bus at the worst of the restaurants, where the food was unhygienic and washrooms were worse than public toilets. Basically I ended up starving that night.There was an elderly man in the trip who got the last seat, he had back issues and he repeatedly requested Rakesh to arrange front seat for him. But Rakesh didn't make any proper efforts for him and eventually the elderly couple had to cancel the trip and drop off mid way. Basically he lacked leadership quality totally.For breakfast on 5th the place was decent.No complaints there.Lunch on 5th was self sponsored so no complaints again.For dinner we selected a nice place but Rakesh had major budget constraints, we were ready to pay extra on top of his budget allocated but again that place was cancelled.Major disappointment there!! And we ended up wasting 1+ hour in deciding the place. Amazing display of decision making but Rakesh yet again.After dinner we reached homestay at 12pm, the homestay was fine , but again basic water also wasn't provided even after multiple request. How can someone be so inconsiderate? At this point Rakesh has started ignoring our complaints and wasn't giving any response. When we confronted him , he behaved rudely and called me as a negative personality, Seriously!! How unprofessional!!When trek started at 8!m, we continuously walked for 2hours before we got the breakfast. Poha served for breakfast was fine but tea was pathetic.Throughout the trek Rakesh was lack luster and was the last one struggling to walk.His health wasn't good I guess. There weren't any instructions from him and in light of this, people were going in all random directions. We had no idea when to come back and where to assemble.Clear lack of leadership there.It looked like we were guiding Rakesh rather than him doing it for us.Overall the trip could have been much better of we had a responsible , energetic and leader kind of guide. Would not prefer coming by Muddies.com ever again. - by Subhash Sahni for Dudhsagar Trek with Colva Beach of Goa organized by Muddie Trails .
