      Tour Coordinators are always helping and taking an initiative to enhance the overall experience. Though there is always scope for improvement, the trip arranged by this company was absolutely fantastic. No trouble occurred during check in at any of the hotel and cab with driver was also good. The driver arranged was familiar with most of the places which helped to save the time. Driver also guided about timings of all temples and made us reach on time every time. Thank you.

      Overall trip was good. Agent behaviour was also good but the only issue was agent didn’t pay the hotel expenditure, driver expenses like to fill up the petrol etc. on time. Each & every time we had to remind him to pay the bills.
