What our visitors are saying about their experience

Here are just a few of our testimonials.
The joy was abundant when I accompanied The Pencil Tree to distribute educational materials to school children in India. To be part of this and witness the smiles and hear the thanks of these students, so keen to learn, was a total gift to me. I will go back.

The India experience with The Pencil Tree is a holiday with the difference and a purpose. There are plenty of opportunities to engage with the locals and of course delivering learning materials to school children in need. The setting in the lower Himalayas is stunning and we were well looked after by the boys at Kailwood guesthouse.

My time in Daramasala with The Pencil Tree was heart opening and softening. I was touched by the joy of the kids we visited and their eagerness to interact. I loved connecting with the Tibetan community in turn and felt the influence the Buddhist techings everywhere. I too will go back.
