Csdesikan's 9 days trip to Madhya PradeshHave to improve hotels in these sectors. Except Kajuraho, Bhandvgarh and Japalpur, hotels in Ujjain and Indore are very average and services are poor. Also need better coordination in logistics.
Arun's 6 days trip to Madhya PradeshI would like to thank Club 7 Vacations for designing such a wonderful trip. It was a great and well-arranged trip. I shall surely consider my future trips through Club 7 Vacations. The best part of the tour was stay. This resort is definitely far better and beautiful than other stay arrangements. The concept, excellent restaurants and large variety of dishes offered in breakfast, this resort truly makes for a memorable holiday. That's not all, the resort also houses a spa center, a gaming zone and hosts events every evening was well-arranged.

Charu's 4 days trip to Madhya PradeshA very nicely organised trip by Neha and team. We went to Indore, Mandu, Omkareshwar, Maheshwar and Mandu. The hotels and food was really very nice.
