It was a fantastic trip, above expectations!
My daughter fell before arriving New Dehli and we almost cancelled the trip but Amit made sure to provide a wheeled chair in case she needed it. He also checked on us everyday Andy made sure all our needs were met. Great company.
We had a great time seeing the best Golden Triangle sights in India through this tour. As two females travelers, we felt very safe throughout which was highly important to us. The hotels were superb. Most of our guides were excellent and had very informative tips and history to share. Our driver was superb - very friendly and accommodating. We chose not to do the complimentary elephant ride and it would have been nice to be offered an alternative but that's okay. Overall, I would recommend this company to other travelers when visiting India!
A fantastic tour and a great way to see the sites. Our driver was fantastic and took us safely and explained what was happening as we went along. The guides we had at each stop were very helpful and knowledgable. The cash crisis did cause us some problems as we weren't able to get cash easily. This made tipping difficult but everyone was very understanding. Our driver went out of his way to assist us with getting to an atm. It is definitely a good way to see India as everything is taken care of and you just have to go along and enjoy it - stress free.
This was a perfect 3 day tour if you don't have a lot of time and would like to explore history and the beauty of India! The guides all know what they are talking about and our driver Mr. Bindar was excellent. We really appreciated our driver! The booking process and everything was very straight forward and easy to follow and Amit the contact from Crystal India Tours was helpful in giving direction on what will happena and the process. I highly highly recommend this tour! I would do it again!
On collection from the hotel we were given an envelope with detailed instructions on what was to happen and the time frames, along with some helpful notes. Top marks Amit for your communication. Amit also sent out an email a few days earlier, explaining what cash would be required for entrance fees. When I explained that we had been unable to get any rupees because of the cash crisis, he organised that for us too, and provided links for the rites we were able to buy e-tickets.
All our guides were very knowledgeable, but our Jaipur guide, Nadeem was our best guide. He was younger, and had a more relaxed approach, rather than delivering a lecture, but still was able to impart his knowledge.
Thanks, Amit for a fabulous tour.
We found out about Crystal India Tours on TripAdvisor and it was an great find. For anyone visiting India, I would highly recommend them. Communication and administration have been excellent from start to finish and the tour was excellent value for money.We booked a 3 day tour to New Delhi, Agra and Jaipur which included all the must see sights Qutub Minar, India Gate, Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Amber Fort to name but a few! 4/5 star hotels, taxi, tour guides, soft drinks on the journey, the elephant ride at Amber Fort and breakfast were all included, only entrance fees were extra. Most entrance fees were 500 rupees each.Our taxi driver, Binder, was brilliant and we felt safe in the taxi despite the manic Indian roads. He was also extremely knowledgeable about the areas we visited. Binder was always incredibly polite and couteous opening the taxi door for us and keeping us supplied with cold water.Guides were provided in each city and this made life much easier, as they queued for tickets and were very informative.There is a lot of driving involved 5 hours at a time, but it is so worth it! The time flies by as there is so much to see en route it's fascinating.I would definitely book with Crystal again. Thank you for an amazing trip!
We really enjoyed this tour. It was very well organised by the local tour operator. We travelled in an air-conditioned vehicle with a driver and an escort to provide extra care and attention. In addition private local guides were also provided at each site visited and they were very knowledgeable and could explain the history of the places visited very well. The accommodation was in 5 star luxury hotels. We liked the Jaypee Palace Hotel in Agra. The visit to the Taj Mahal was the best. The Amber Fort in Jaipur was also good.
Amazing experience! Combines the most important sightseeing if you have few days to visit. A really luxury experience. Superb hotels especially Jaycee Palace in Agfa. Excellent driver and informative guides. Excellent option for first time visitors like us. Organized perfectly by local tour operator Crystal Tours.We would book it again.
We have just finished this golden triangle tour , to say it was Fantastic would be a under statement , everything was faultless pickups were bang on time , guides were brilliant knowledgeable and very friendly, and the scope of everything covered was Amazing, the driver Jeevan was exceptional, very informative , highly skilled driver , and certainly added to the whole experience, we would recommend this tour , you will see so much in a relatively short time, and this tour is exceptional value for money AAA
This tour was the best out of the whole lot. We were picked up from the airport and did a half day tour of Delhi with a nice guide. We were then driven to Agra and checked into the amazing Jaypee palace hotel where we were welcomed with a drink and a garland of flowers. This hotel is truly 5. The next morning, we went to the Taj Mahal before breakfast. This was the highlight of our whole tour in India. We returned to the hotel for breakfast and then checked out. Next wasAgra fort, followed by a visit to Fatehpur Sikiri. We were driven to Jaipur and checked into the Holiday Inn for two nights. The highlights of Jaipur were the elephant ride, Jaipur fort and the observatory. We had the same driver throughout and different guides, who were all very good in showing us round. Our driver was very good. He gave us advise on restaurants that were clean for us to eat and what goods the region produced. He made sure that we were comfortable and supplied us with cooled soft drinks and water throughout. The owner of the Agency called on our last day to ascertain if we were satisfied with the tour. The driver took us back to our Dehli hotel with more advise on what to see.
Definitely this tour was our money worth, I would recomend it 100. Our agency was Crystal India tours and I think they did an excellent job and provided everything they offered. Hotels are selected perfectly, both of them with luxury facilities. Tour guides are very good and the driver that was with us the whole tour was the best Jeeva.
Thank you very much to Amit and his wonderful team for a memorable Golden Triangle Tour! It was very comprehensive, so many amazing historical places in so short a time, insightful, interesting, and fun! Hotels were elegant and comfortable, guides were knowledgeable, helpful, protective and funny, and itinerary covered everything we wanted to see! Nikhil, our escort, was very kind, patient and accommodating and Ashok, our driver, drove us safely around and even found the watch I lost during the trip! Amit monitored our tour the whole time and made sure everything was OK. Thanks again Amit and team! We had great, unforgettable and hassle-free tour!
If you don't have much time to visit India but would like to get a taste of some of the amazing things this country has to offer, this is the tour for you.
You will learn a lot about the Mughal dynasty and how it influenced the architecture in India.
Overall I had a very pleasant tour. Nice tour guides, especially Abdul, who taught me so much about Jaipur and its history.
Great guides great hotels fantastic driver and the tour itself was excellent. .would recommend to any one...
Extremely well organised , they really look after us . Very friendly and polite.
All hotels were very good
Both me and my friend loved our driver Javan. He was both attentive, knowledgeable, and we both felt very safe with him. All the hotels were superb! In addition, we loved all our tour guides which were super knowledgeable. I loved this tour and wish we could relive it again and again.
Extremely good,it was value for money and time was used wisely.lots of learning and a all time life experience to cherish.
Very nice air conditioned bus.The driver was very capable. Each tour guide was knowledgeable and helped us to understand the place we were at. The hotels were very comfortable and welcoming. We enjoyed our trip immensely. One thing .to improve on is recommendations for things to do in the evening and safe places to visit. Overall I would recommend this tour.
Talk about bang for your buck! This tour was incredible! Our driver, Vinder, was with us the entire trip and he was excellent! You get different tour guides in each city and we had 2 great ones. Most is included in the package. Highly, highly recommended!
This was a wonderful, well organized trip, highly recommend! In a short amount of time you are able to see so much, it is amazing.
Mr Amit could not have been better. He had been in touch with us from the moment we booked out tour and, and made sure everything was going well and to our satisfaction even before out trip. During the tour he also kept in touch daily to make sure all is good. Excellent customer service!
Our driver - Mr. Jivan - was excellent. He spoke very well English, was always prompt and on-time, and made every possible effort to make sure all is going according to plan not always easy with India crazy traffic. The tour guides were both very professional, nice and very knowledgeable. We really liked our Jaipur guide it was like having a family member taking you on a tour at his favorite places.
The hotels provided by the tour 5 stars - were both high class and very nice.
This is an excellent value for money, and I will sure look up Mr. Amit services again, next time
Im in India.
After an initial problem the tour was amazing.
Our flight was late and we were tired. When we got picked up, the driver did not speak English. Our contact texted that he knew where to go. Once we got to the first monument, we were told that we had to pay 1,500 rupees. We were under the impression that everything was included. I also indicated that having a non-English speaking driver not part of the package.
We could not even tell him if we needed to stop to go to the bathroom. The local contact then gave us a translator which was nice but made the car very cramped.
The tour afterwards was amazing. Local tour guides were wonderful. I would have to say that the side trips they take you on to local shops are interesting. While not required you do feel guilty if you don't buy something from the shop.
Once the issues where resolved, everything was wonderful. On the day in Jaipur, we finished early and then went to more local stores. It would have been nice to have the option to head back to New Delhi that day as we were done by lunch.
Note from Viator: Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry to hear you were not aware of the entrance fees prior to travel. We always strive to make our guests aware of entrance fees by mentioning it several times on our booking page, under our "Important Information" and "Exclusions" sections, as well as listing it again on the voucher ticket, just in case it was missed prior to booking. Again, we are sorry you may have felt mislead by the cost of the tickets, but we hope you were still able to enjoy the remainder of your tour experience.
Tour was OK can be better .
The driver was excellent .Jaipur tour guide was the worst .the rest was ok
