To Whom It May Concern
Antieke Wereld BV is an up market Dutch tour
operator mainly in the business of fully organized cultural group
tours on academic level all over the world and established in 1954.
After working for many years with another agency
in Pakistan, we have for the first time ventured to cooperate with
Pakistan Guides, for our group tours in March 1998.
In the process of setting up this all-Pakistan
tour, Mr. Kaiser appeared to be very attentive and full of
suggestions, which he brought out with the care of a true
professional. I do not hesitate to say that it turned our to become a
tour with a great difference, in which our adagium to focus on
culture, architecture and history as well as on the current affairs
with regard to the people and their lived culture could come to full
bloom. As a result, this group returned home very happy and fully
satisfied from Pakistan.
We have side -businesses and one of them is
organizing a very special biking tour from China to Pakistan, which is
forthcoming in June and we are happily leaving the local organization
to Pakistan Guides, as well as all other tours to Pakistan in future.
If anyone wants to be informed about Mr. Kaiser
Khan and his excellent professional services, please do let me know.

company Top Guides Treks and Tours has worked with Mr. Kaiser Khan of
Pakistan Guides for about four years now. We put several
mountaineering groups through his operation with no problems. In fact,
he is the only tour operator I know of in Pakistan who refunds unused

Khan is a man of his word. He has great integrity and honor. He is
detail oriented and has served in many roles both in the field on
expeditions and tours and in a travel office. Thus, his understanding
of what all goes into successful trip for various nationalities is
can present impassioned slide presentation with great photos and is a
persuasive speaker. But above all, he delivers and your clients will
be very happy with his services.

Dear Mr Kaiser Khan
In my previous function of
Managing Director of Antieke Wereld BV in Hilversum. The Netherlands I
had kindly requested You to be the incoming tour operator for a guide
of 11 Dutch bikers, who came from China all along the Karakoram
Highway to Rawalpindi.
The group left Pakistan safely
on 30 June 1998 and I have spoken to them shortly after I wanted to
inform You that the group enjoyed and esteemed very well your
impeccable services and a lot of – I may say – amazing and
unprecedented extras such as a reception by the Minister of Tourism
and the ambassador of the Netherlands, as well as an interview on
Pakistan Television on 1 July.
Concluding this we are very
satisfied with Your services and we wish to add that our clients also
back here have been busy to record their experiences and we hope it
will get a follow-up in other groups.
With many thanks

Last March I visited Pakistan
for seventeen days as a tour leader with a group of Dutch travelers.
This journey was organized by ANTIEKE WERELD (tour operator at
Hilversum, Netherlands) in close cooperation with Kaiser Khan,
director of PAKISTAN GUIDES at Rawalpindi.
The majority of our customers are frequent travelers interested in
art, architecture and culture in general. I myself, having studied Art
History and specialized in South and Central Asia at the Universities
of Amsterdam and Utrecht, feel I can fairly well judge the capacities
of Mr Kaiser Khan.
Mr Khan who assisted me in a very pleasant way during this tour
organized for us a comfortable bus and a very trustworthy and friendly
driver as well as a capable local guide. Also I appreciated his
capability to comply with special wishes of the group. Besides Mr Khan
is a very cheerful and amiable character and could deal well with
sudden events. To our utter delight he brought us in contact with
different groups of society such as politicians, artists like quality
musicians, traditional puppet players and transvestite-dancers. In
short he gave personalized attention to my group which was greatly
I cannot but conclude that Mr khan is an able organizer and offers
high quality services.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
I first met Mr Kaiser Khan in
1989 when collecting information for my fourth guide book to Pakistan.
Pakistan Trekking Guide (1993, Odyssey, Hong Kong). He was extremely
helpful to me, answering all my questions thoroughly and efficiently.
He has since helped me update two of my earlier guidebooks, Pakistan
Handbook and Introduction to Pakistan. I find Mr Kaiser Khan seriously
interested in promoting tourism in Pakistan. He is articulate and
literate and was elected the spokesman for the other private sector
tour operators in their negotiations with the Pakistan Ministry of
Kaiser Khan is innovative in
his new ideas and thorough in his research and planning. He has
promoted several new Tourism ideas over recent years including the
clean up expedition to K2 Base Camp in 1993, tree planting at camp
sites, river rafting on Swat river, some new treks, an expedition
shopping catalogue and the rental of camping and kitchen gear to
trekking and climbing expeditions and to back packers.
I have never taken a tour with
any of the Pakistani private tour agencies. I always travel alone in
Pakistan, sponsored by the government, committed and experienced
Kaiser Khan is, and having met some of his satisfied clients, I feel
sure he runs an efficient agency.
Kaiser Khan is also an
accomplished photographer. About thirty of his photos will appear in
second edition of my Pakistan Handbook, including the cover photo.
