"I highly recommend iSpiice to anyone wanting an experience with volunteering in India. I was lucky enough to stay with iSpiice in November 2014 for three weeks and it was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. The staff are so friendly and caring and made the experience even more enjoyable. I have become good friends with them all and many of the volunteers I stayed with.

I was very pleased with the low cost of the program and how well I was looked after. Not only is iSpiice an amazing way to volunteer, but it also gives amazing opportunities to explore the rest of India with many extra tours. ISpiice is an amazing opportunity to volunteer and experience India while at the same time having a really enjoyable and memorable experience. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to experience India in such a special way. I will never forget my time spent with the team, and I can’t wait to go back and to do all over again."
