We were travelling in family with two children, 7 and 13 years old. We had a great experience, from booking assistance and coordinations with Amit who was really helpful and flexible to meet our requests!!, to deep immersions in Delhi, with Nitin, Agra with Ajay, and closing full day experience in Jaipur with Kumabat. Every guide was very experienced and patient to accommodate all our requests for visits and shopping, all of them gave us the tour in perfect Spanish, and con do English also of course. We took the 5 stars hotel option and selected hotels were really good and proper 5 start ones. Special mention to our driver Rajesh!!!, he made us feel safe all the way up to the drop off back in Delhi and was very knowledgeable to suggest places for dinning and shopping during the different legs of the tour. Totally recommended experience!!!

Faizal was our guide for Taj Mahal and he guided us very well all the way from railway station to the monument - he brought us in a taxi, then an electric vehicle to go to the Mahal and back. He talks politely and he’s very friendly guide. Definitely recommend him !
