Paritosh's 5 days trip to UdaipurBeautiful 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.
Manhugerediffmailcom's 4 days trip to UdaipurCorporate Host Destination coordinator was very cooperative. Udaipur is best city to visit
Sweta's 3 days trip to UdaipurOverall 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!
Shrinivas's 4 days trip to UdaipurWe appreciate the driver being very helpful! He recommended a couple of interesting places to check out and explore. Thanks! Travel agent services could have been better.
Aamir's 4 days trip to UdaipurTrip 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 UdaipurFor 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

FAQ's of Udaipur
Read on to find out why our customers love us!
Lake Pichola, Udai Sagar Lake, Fateh Sagar Lake, Rajsamand Lake, and Jaisamand Lake are the five major lakes in Udaipur.
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
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.
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.
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.
June is not a good time to visit Udaipur as the temperature is high and also the high humidity levels. June is considered to be the hottest month in Udaipur and not ideal for sightseeing and other activities. Hotel rates may be at their lowest during this month but we recommend not to plan a visit to Udaipur in the month of June as you won’t be able to enjoy your trip to the fullest.
