Observe the Hindu’s way of life on the bank of the River Ganges (Ganga). There are a number of temples on the bank of the Ganges River in Varanasi. It is at the Ganga Ghats (Banaras Ghat) where you see life and death together. There are numbers of Ghat alongside Ganges river in Varanasi. Some of the prominent and popular Ghats at Varanasi are the Dasaswamedh Ghat, Manikarnika Ghat, Harischandra Ghat, Assi Ghat,Shivala Ghat, Man Mandir Ghat, Darbhanga Ghat, Ahilyabai Ghat and Kedar Ghat. After boat ride, take a small walk to the oldest part of Varanasi, famous for its narrow street. Visit the Kashi Vishwnath Temple area, also know as the Golden Temple (open to Hindus only). Sarnath: (closed on Friday) After breakfast drive to Sarnath which is around 10 Km from Varanasi City. This is in Varanasi is the place where Buddha chose to deliver his first sermon in a DEER PARK.

          Best trip in India
          Dilip and his colleague made sure we had a wonderful day in Agra visiting the Taj Mahal and Red Fort as well as Fatehpursikri. It was a 5 star excellent service as we (a group of 16 pll) had the best time. We are so lucky to find this company. 100 % recommend.

          Golden Triangle trip
          Narendra organised a faultless trip round Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Ranthambore for us last week. Constant whatsapps checking all was OK, itinerary changes and alterations to suit, and 5* service. Our driver and guides who he organised were all excellent. I think you would struggle to find someone who takes the level of personal service to the heights that he does. Would totally recommend.

          Tour of Valley of Flowers, Hemkund Sahib, Badrinath, Haridwar, Rishikesh
          We had arranged for the Innova Crysta car from Dilip to be with us all the time. The car picked us up from Dehradun airport and stayed with us throughout our journey of 9 days covering the Valley of Flowers, Badrinath, and Rishikesh. The car was less than 2 years old and was very clean. Before the journey started, a 360-degree video of the car with the number plate was shown to us. We had to drive through difficult hilly terrain with constant landslides. The skillful driver took care to see that no undue risk was taken when driving the car. The driver also doubled up as a knowledgeable guide. Thank you, Dilip for providing reliable, safe, and secure transport.

          Stunning Rajasthan: how to customise your tour in a amazing way!
          Yes! Impressive Holyday did it! We were really surprised about their capabilities to face our requests and need, exceeding our expectation. They did a first proposal, then we decided to change some hotels and location with their suggestions and we accepted it. During the tour we changed something due to the monsoon or because we did not like something and they were really open and flexible solving immediately the issue. The driver Amrit was a real gentleman, we did more than 4000km and we have been always really safe. The guides were very good, the vast majority Italian speaking! We saw the best of best ( and for me was the second time in Rajasthan) and the experience was boosted by the organisation of Impressive holydays with their MD Dilip Yadav! Thank you

          Great experience!
          Transportation came very quick, it was a long drive for us from Delhi to Agra, but totally worth it! Guid was very professional, telling not boring stories, but making us feel really in contact with whole story of Taj Mahal! Adorable people, adorable places, must visit!

          Perfect Tour!
          Dilip helped us to organize our tour, from Jaisalmer to Delhi. He paid attention before and during the trip to be sure that we would have a perfect holiday. We didn't met him personally as we didn't stop in Agra, but he gave us an excellent driver, very friendly, english speaking and safe driving. The car was new and clean, really comfortable, the driver brought us wherever we wanted, always punctual and smiley! It is really a pleasure to organize a trip with Dilip as he really care about making your holiday unforgettable. Thank you Dilip, we hope to come back soon!

          Amazing Agra
          Thank you Mr Dilip for organizing a memorable trip to the Taj Mahal and Red fort, also for the transport and the lady guide Ms Sheela. I would like to compliment you and your team. The Taj Mahal is once in a lifetime experience however it is convenient to have a responsible friendly and courteous travel organizer. We also visited the Indian leather house and Sanskriti Imperials Gems another great place who has preserved the rich heritage of zardosi and embroidered paintings. It has been a truly unique experience. I look forward for going once again. Gatiman express has been convenient but suggest atleast two nights stay. Thank you Dilip and next time please do arrange our visit again.
