Well organised trip, everything was as expected. Company always available for our queries and to help with our requests.
They have prepared a trip according to our interests and to our budget.
They can inform people that the tour will be done by a private guide and private car. And give the alternative of having less luxury and more time to interact with the locals.
Driver was very helpful, but the day he was suppose to drive us without guide he wanted to leave us at the hotel after lunch, although we have asked to see other things. After us insisting he took us to a temple that was closed, although we said we wanted to go when it was opened. Afterwards, he drop us at the hotel we ask to go again when the temple was opened and he didn’t want to take us. We felt the guides were very helpful but they also wanted to finish the day at around 3pm, even when we ask to see other places they said it was already too late. Sandeep was very helpful and provided us with all the details that we needed to know and also left his direct contact, which we used when we had some issues in hotel in Goa.
Delhi and Jaipur hotels were great. Agra hotel was very dirty, I would not recommend. Goa hotel needs improvement, but staff were really helpful and made our stay pleasant. I would advise people if they want to taste the real India food to ask the guides to go to the authentic restaurants where locals go and not the restaurants for the tourist, as they have done with us. We felt a bit pressured to go to stores and do the standard “go just to check it out” but then the store owners would do all they could to sells us everything.
The visit in Jaipur was the best, the guide was really good and the city is really impressive. But the Taj Mahal at sunrise was the most memorable part - this was suggested by the guide in Agra and it was definitely worth waking up early!

Dear Cristiana, Thank you very much for your kind feedback. I am glad to know that you enjoyed your stay in India and had a good tour. I am really sorry to hear that you were not happy with the driver on your free day in Jaipur. If you felt that the driver was not interested in showing you around after lunch, I wish you had let us know about it right there and then. Sandeep was in touch with you daily on phone and whatsapp and he would have immediately taken care of this. Please accept my apologies for this inconvenience. It was our pleasure to organise this tour for you and we look forward to seeing you in India again. Best wishes, NutanOur local partner based in India
