    Niteshwar's 6 days trip to Haridwar

    They just acted as a coordinator not as professional Agent. They hired taxi from third party and third party hired from fourth so the Driver behavior was very bad. The driver is one who accompany you during whole trip.

    Delhi

    Vrushali's 8 days trip to Haridwar

    It was our bad luck that due to whether conditions we were not able to visit munsiyari. hotel and food were good however the driver was not good. He was good in driving but he was very rude and was talking continuously on phone . In mukhteshwar the car stop 4km before our hotel due to snow as it was not able to climb up but in the morning most of the other cars were able to climb up but the driver was very arrogant and said that it won't climb up and we had to travel ourself towards the car.

    Chandan Kumar

    Bengaluru

    Chandan's 6 days trip to Haridwar

    Our trip to Uttarakhand was very good. It was arranged by Mr Deepak, he booked all the hotels rooms, river rafting in Rishikesh and Jim Corbett safari. Whatever he communicated he was able to deliver it, but we had cab break down initially. Later he arranged a new cab and gave a good driver. I would recommend this travel agent as he is very kind and very responsive to your questions. Service is very good. One suggestions would be to give better cabs which are in running conditions and also communicate with the tourists about which place that are planned on daily basis.

    Aman Gupta

    Kolkata

    Aman's 5 days trip to Haridwar

    Trip was totally mis organized. Hotel option given was too far from sight seeing in dhanualti. After prior addition of cake for my wife birthday the cake was not provided. Tried to call the agent alloted he was busy sleeping. Till date i havent rec'd a call from his side. Driver didn't had any clue about the itinerary. He said he is just been alloted the duty for 5 days thats it. He will go wherever i say. After we reached dhanulti we see that the property booked is another 60km far. Whole day was wasted in a drive only not a single sightseeing was done in dhanaulti. Hotel haut monde was pethitic in service wise. I requested for change of heater in room 4 time non of the time any person from the hotel show up and the agent was busy sleeping as i mentioned. Every hotel asked me for the payment done receipt why will i show them the receipt. This shows that there is no communication between agent side and hotel.

    FAQ's of Haridwar

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Road conditions in Haridwar remain mostly unaffected even in the Monsoons travelling in the day or even at night. However, the roads get overcrowded during the Kanwariya season in Haridwar.

    It is scorching hot during summers and very chilly in the winters. So ideal time for one to visit is February-April and August-November.

    Haridwar is a holy place with numerous temples. Among them, Mansa Devi Temple, Bharat Mata Temple, Chandi Devi Temple and Maya Devi Temple are some of the most visited ones.

    Yes, you can definitely witness Ganga Aarti that happens in Har ki Pauri two times a day. The timings of the aarti depend on the sunrise and the sunset each day. While morning aarti is not so famous, the evening aarti is prefered by the tourists as it gives a phenomenal visual effect.

     

     

    Rishikesh, Dehradun and Mussoorie are some of the nearby places one can visit while on his/her tour in Haridwar.

    Albeit, it is safe to travel to Haridwar from Delhi by car during the night, it can be a little difficult for people driving to the town for the first time. For, post Muzzaffarnagar, the highway is not really easy to navigate through.
