Photographers and nature lovers have made Ranthambore National Park a destination for those seeking complete escape from India’s more urban centers. The lush forest is home to the Ranthambore Fort, and once served as the private hunting grounds for the maharajas of Jaipur. In 1955 Ranthambore became a game sanctuary and later, in 1980, it was officially named a national park.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

The overall Trip was great I would recommend to travelers to insist that they travel FIRST CLASS on the overnight train trip because the 2nd class sleeper car that was provided by the travel agent was akin to being in a prison ship. The Overnight train ride was in a wretched sleeper with four strangers, the inmates on Orange is the New Black have better accommodation. When I came back to Delhi and saw this 2nd class cabin again I insisted on paying for an upgrade to first class. It was about 10 buck more expensive but definitely worth it. That being said the trip overall was quite enjoyable, the hotel was great the safari amazing and the staff very attentive and helpful.

A very comfortable overnight train journey in a first class carriage. We were met and escorted at each stage of the journey. We were given zone 8 in the morning, seeing few animals, but in the afternoon we had zone 4 - wonderful! Our guide was very excited, and indeed, amongst other animals, we saw a beautiful tigress. The company phoned us in the evening to check we had seen a tiger - I think if we hadn't, we could probably gone on another expedition, but the line wasn't too clear. Would recommend.

I enjoyed this trip from the moment I left my hotel. It was my first experience with the Indian railway, so the guide helped me all the way to my seat on the train before leaving. The guides I had one in Delhi and one in Ranthambore were very helpful, they checked in on me and made sure I was enjoying the trip.
On the actual safari, we did not see any tigers, but we did see a leopard, which is apparently quite rare. In addition to the leopard we saw monkeys, peacocks, lizards, crocodiles, many species of birds, and deer. The jeep rides were fun and the scenery was beautiful. I went the last weekend they were open before monsoon, so there was a lot of greenery from rain a few days prior.
There is nothing to do in Ranthambhore other than the safari, so between the morning and afternoon trips 10am-3pm, there was nothing to do. I sat by the pool for a little, but it was very hot. I have a hard time sitting still, so I would have appreciated a mid day excursion.
The hotel was average. The food was good, my room was cool, the bed was comfortable firm and the staff were polite but the bathroom was a little gross, and the pool was murky.
Overall, I recommend this trip if you are not very familiar or comfortable traveling India or do not want to do all the planning yourself. Otherwise, you could plan the trip yourself and save a lot of money.

I really enjoyed Ranthambore! I did get two see two tigers, one on the morning trip and one during the afternoon. I saw many other animals as well. The pickup service was fantastic and I was easily able to spot the driver picking me up in both Delhi and at the train station. The train while fairly comfortable, is not private. I shared a sleeper car with three strangers which was intimidating as a solo, female traveler. The safari was fantastic, the hotel was comfortable, and the hotel staff were amazing. Well worth it!

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2015

While I really enjoyed visiting Ranthambore National Park, I'm only giving this trip 3 stars due to the misleading information from the tour operator. I'm not sure why the trip is labeled as a "Private" tour since nothing about it was private other than the 5 minute transfers from the hotels to train station and back. The overnight train was in a compartment shared with 3 others, and the jeep safaris were also shared with 4 other random people from different hotels. The tour operator also provided the wrong train departure time, and due to this mistake, we arrived at the station 5 minutes after the departure time, but luckily the train had not yet left. The communication after almost missing the train, and going on a shared safari was also incredibly frustrating as the representative was giving excuses for everything, and not taking any responsibility for his mistakes.

However, Ranthambore National Park is stunningly beautiful. We did not actually see any tigers, but saw lots of deer, monkeys, peacocks, and other animals, and the jeep ride itself was fun. I would highly recommend doing tiger safaris at Ranthambore.

This trip was a complete disappointment. I have booked various tours from viator in different countries and I felt compelled to write this review for this tour.
We get picked up from our hotel and were taken to the train station. The representative was nice but was unable to answer questions about the tour because he never took that tour or guided the tour. He escorted us to our train cabin and told us NOT to get off of the train until another rep of the tour company knocked at our cabin to escort us to the hotel. The train cabin was definitely not first class material as someone had mentioned in a review, it was very dirty and uncomfortable. The train didn't have a loud speaker or anyway to inform the passengers the name of the stops. A few minutes passed after our expected arrival time and no one came to get us like we were told. I called the company and told us to get off at the next stop and someone will get us. We waited over an hour and finally were picked up and were told we were only going on one safari because we missed our first safari.

We were given invalid tickets for the train both ways -a very embarrassing situation for us where it appeared that we were trying to commit fraud. We had noticed problems on tickets, but the staff members from the operator were not honest with us. Still waiting on a response from Viator.
