Paritosh's 5 days trip to Udaipur

Beautiful experience. Best thing about Ganesham Tours is their knowledge of locations in Rajasthan. Saurabh from Ganesham helped me improving my itenary by adding few places that I didn't even hear from any other agent. His response on my request for changes in hotels was very swift and smooth. Overall Bravo!! to you, your team and your work Ganesham.

S's 3 days trip to Udaipur

Overall it was a good trip.. but the thing is that... You guys should not include places.. which are closed.. for example.. Nehru park/ photo booth is closed for the past 1.5 years.. how you guys are not updated about this thing that it has been already closed... Also if certain places are closed in Sunday or certain days.. ideally the driver or the travel agent should inform us previously that these places will be closed on this day.. so kindly cover these all in the other day... How you guys are not keeping a check on these things? @traveltoexploreprivat please keep in mind these things before making an itenary for your customers.. other than that.. driver was very humble n our agent Naveen was also very co-operative Cultural program in Bagore ki haveli in Udaipur and visit to delwara Jain temple in mount Abu!

Aamir's 4 days trip to Udaipur

Trip had been superb for us, we were celebrating our first anniversary and things were so well co-ordinated by Mr. Neeraj. A little disappointment from Hotel Raghuvantra as they don't serve non-veg may be its very new property and people don't know much about it. Rest all things made our trip very delightful. In four days so much of sight seeing by Mr. Bhanu, he is most courteous person i have ever met, took care of each and every small things in this trip. I wish we had few more days to stay.. :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) Must see Kumbhalgarh fort lgiht and sound show, Folk art gallery & Aquarium in Udaipur, gurushikhar temple in mount abu. Special thanks to Mr. Neeraj and Mr. Bhanu.

Parvez's 6 days trip to Udaipur

For a family trip to Udaipur & Mt Abu in Oct 2017, I chose Holiday Season based on the excellent reviews they have had. I must say they lived up to their reputation ! Mr Raj, especially, has been extremely flexible and helpful, even in case when we had to reschedule a day last minute. The hotels and travel arrangements provided were equally good especially Vishnupriya and Janak Niwas in Udaipur. Will heartily recommend Holiday Season and services of Mr Raj to anyone travelling with family for well-planned, reasonably priced and comfortable trip ! Parvez A M Mumbai
