This was by far our favorite vacation to date. This is a well thought out itinerary with seamless planning and never a dull moment. We were able to visit every site mentioned without rushing or feeling pressed for time, it flowed. It seemed as though every single day was a new adventure. Each tour guide was exceptionally professional, smiley, fun, and extremely extremely knowledgeable on the historical facts. Our driver/chauffeur Ravi was with us from our very first day until our last and made sure we were always comfortable he knows the best rest stops for good food and clean restrooms. I have not one single complaint of this trip, I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the Golden Triangle of India, and if you can request Ravi as your driver please do so because you will be in the car quite a bit and being with a very safe and professional driver that is friendly makes all the difference. We do not have a specific highlight because we intensely enjoyed every day, every historical site, and even our road trips from one place to the other. I am planning already another trip to India.

We were happy to return to India from Bhutan and Nepal, I was sick and so exhausted the entire week of our travels in India. We were met at Delhi Airport by a representative and handed over to a driver for the next 7 days! Our wonderful driver Rafi Sharma, who took such wonderful care of us. We traveled very comfortably in his very clean vehicle, Rafi was always on time to pick us up at the hotels and we also appreciated we always had cold water anytime we needed some. I cant say enough about this wonderful, kind, person, he made our visit to India so special! Like I said I dragged myself around India all week, but was happy that we had booked a private tour, so when we met a new guide in each new city I could go at my pace and not waste time, like taken us shopping, which we hate, and telling the guides what we were interested in and not having to stand in the hot sun, pretending we would remember every detail of what they wanted to tell us about each place! Just the highlights, please! We took lots of pictures and the internet can refresh our memories, and fill in the blanks when we returned home.
I was a little concerned the last day because we were taking a train to BEAS and I had read a lot of scams at the train station that targeted tourists. We didnt have a lot of time to find the right entrance and the correct gate, but Rafi came to the rescue, parked the car and took us right to the platform where we needed to board the train! We are so grateful to have met this man, we will never forget him and how safe we felt with him, great driver in this crazy land of insane drivers!
We would highly recommend this tour and especially ask for Rafi to drive, you will not be disappointed!
My friend and I from the States recently took this tour in early August 2016. The tours in each city visited were well organized. We selected the 4-Star hotel option and all of our hotels were good. We were upgraded in Agra to a 5-Star which was incredible we stayed 1 nt at the Trident Hotel in Agra. I will say that the gap between a 3-Star hotel option to a 4-Star hotel option is pretty high, so it is recommended to pay the extra amount and go with the 4-Star hotel so that you ensure there aren't as many problems with your water, shower, rooms, etc. Each city visited had its own local English-speaking tour guide for us for the day. Each of the guides we had were informative, enthusiastic, and very friendly. The only guide I had a not so great experience with was in Pushkar. The city is small and is very beautiful, especially by the lake. The local guide in Pushkar that we ended up with for the day was more focused on taking us shopping, versus focusing on the tours and completing the tour first. Other than that, all the other guides were great. Our private driver, Pankaj, was amazing and very helpful and friendly, and ensured that we always had bottled water whenever needed, he made sure to get us medicine when we were not feeling well, and always went above and beyond to make sure that we as tourists were happy and most importantly, safe. He also made sure if we needed to use the restroom, that we stopped at nice places with toilets. Our private car was also clean and fantastic, especially during the monsoon season where the heat and humidity was extremely high, and thank goodness for AC! Prior to booking this tour, I had a lot of questions and concerns, and reached out to Jasmeet who was extrememly helpful and very communicative and made sure to ease my worries. The customer service and attention was great, which made this tour even better!
This tour was just incredible!
All guides were very interesting, the places visited were amazing, the driver was very proficient.
I deeply recommand that tour!
Tour was good and well organised. The hotel in Agra (Raj Mahal) was a bit poor, bathroom falling apart and smelly. There was no hot water, either. The Red Fox Hotel in Jaipur was poor service, we got pestered for tips. Here and in the Peppermint/Delhi they tried to charge us for dinners even though we had the half-board option and thus prepaid everything. Guides were knowledgeable, friendly and basically good, even though some could speak better English to avoid misunderstandings. Some tried to take us shopping rather than sightseeing and brought us to emporiums even though we had clearly said we were not interested. Car and driver were excellent, very reliable and we always felt save and had to objections to leaving valuables and our luggage in the car. I would recommend this tour anybody who intends to go to India, it is a comfortable way to see everything in good time. Having the guides to show us around and buying tickets aswell as having the car and driver saved us a lot of time and hassle. We did fit sightseeing and shopping in perfectly without missing out on anything and went home with good memories.
