Trip to RajasthanVital had done their best to make our Trip a memorable one. They were supportive and Aarti continuously followed up on our well being and difficulties that we faced during our stay. The Heritage village -Resort is uttermost waste hotel and also is in outskirts of Jaipur. Vital team assured me that they have black listed the hotel and will not offer it to any other travelers. Just for the people who’ll be reading my review, this resort Didn’t provided me a heater in winter , their flush wasn’t working and their water tap didn’t had a cap to control the flow of water. Breakfast was average though. Rest all was good, Driver was very professional and was always on time. Big Thanks to the Vital Team. Thanks for the Anniversary complimentary Lunch.

Trip to RajasthanA big thanks to Tourpedia for arranging this trip. Everything from planning, payment and booking was smooth. We really had a great time in all the places. The driver was professional. Hotels were good just that the one at Udaipur was noisy as the room was facing a busy road. Will recommend them to my friends and look for forward to more trips with them. Jeep ride in Sam

I would strongly recommend Riva holidays for Rajashtan tour. Desert safari
Trip to RajasthanIt was one of the most safe and enjoyable tripa that I had with my girlfriends. 4 of us were travelling from delhi to Udaipur and we were picked by the driver from the railway station and were safely dropped to the railway station post our 3 day trip. Mr. Suresh was very helpful, patient and kind. He prepared an itenary as per our requirements just a day before the trip and even while on the trip he was always available on call, which made the trip very smooth. He also customized it to our needs. He took extra efforts to take care of our safety. There was a very sweet gesture by him at the end of the trip. Lets keep it as a surprise. Have fun everyone.
Trip to RajasthanMe and my family are frequent travelers and this is the second time we contacted Travel Triangle to help me out with all my travel arrangements. I booked for Rajasthan Package through Namoh Holidays for my Parents. The representative of Namoh Holidays, Mr. Vishnu Sharma, just understood our requirements and accordingly he planned the itinerary for us. Also would like to highlight that he is very prompt with calls/mails. My parents falls under Senior Citizen category and just because they were travelling alone, I was a bit apprehensive about all the arrangements – hotel, destinations to be covered, driver etc. etc. But I must say Mr. Vishnu kept all the “if n but” in his mind and he gave me assurance that my parents will not face any kind of problem and will enjoy the trip. He just served the same which has been committed from him. Happy with the overall service. Thanks Travel Triangle and a Big Thank You to Vishnu Ji :)

FAQ's of Udaipur

Udaipur is one of the most popular travel destinations in India and as such, is full of reliable places for solo travellers to stay. As long as the necessary precautions are taken and a general awareness is practiced, there is nothing wrong with Udaipur as a city for solo travel.
Obviously, the best season to visit Udaipur is the winter season from October-February, that is when the temperature is pleasant and the city can be enjoyed peacefully. Having said that, monsoon is not too bad either and it can be a good idea for low budget travellers to go at that time. Summer isn't a very good idea as the temperature during the day is in between 40-45 degrees celsius.
The City Palace of Udaipur is a must visit to introduce yourself to the architetural brilliance and the royal elegance of what once was in the city. A boat ride around Lake Pichola seeing the sights and especially th Lake Palace in the middle is also not to be missed. Bagore Ki Haveli museum is another item on the tourist checklist. Lastly, the Jagdish temple and the Eklingji temple are must visits for religious significance
There are plenty of hotels in the lal ghat, gangaur ghat area and both are ideally located for tourists wishing to be near all the attractions in Udaipur as lal ghat is walking distance from a lot of the major places to visit in Udaipur.
