          The Taj was amazing.
          This tour was okay. things you should know if you are new to India: 1st class on the train is significantly nicer than 2nd, 3rd, or 4th class, but still not what you expect if you have been in 1st class in other countries. It was comfortable and fast. The guy who picked us up to take us to the train station and picked us up from the train station was amazing! He made sure we knew exactly where to go and made sure we were seated before he left. He was the same person who picked us up afterward and was right outside the train when we got off. Here's what you need to know: The guide was knowledgeable. The Taj was amazing. You will be accosted by many photographers before entering the Taj. The photographers will take great pcs and you can leave with actual photographs, but it definitely takes away from the experience. Once the pictures were taken, we were rather quickly taken through the Taj (there were parts of the fort we didn't see), then taken to a lot of local places to spend money (marble factories, tapestry makers, jewelry companies). These are items that can be found all over India. It is clear that these are places that the tour company is familiar with. Lunch was good, but not impressive. It was a small buffet with a bit of variety. You will be asked to leave a review mid-tour. I told the guide I would rather leave a review after the tour was done. He said "Of course" but took us to his business office to leave a review before taking us to the train station. When we got to the train station he showed us which car to get on and left. The people at the train station didn't know where our seats were and we had to walk several cars to find them. Overall, the TAJ was amazing.

          Day trip to Rishikesh and Haridwar with TF Holidays
          We had the most amazing day with Sharma our driver being kind and courteous as well as very prompt.and a very safe driver. We are a couple of English women and took this trip to fulfil a dream to go to the Ganges. Sharma really listened to what we wanted from the trip and was able to make sure we had the most amazing time. I would unreservedly recommend him and the company TF Holidays. Cassie from the UK

          Well organized kashi trip
          My friend and I had a dream of visiting kashi from a year and time had come to visit on 9th of February. We didn't want to miss watching any major places in Kashi and Saranath. But time was a constraint. I came across vision holidays while surfing online. I contacted Mr. Narendra and he had given us a good package. Right from picking us up from airport to visiting sight seeing places to watching ganga arati by boat and early morning arati at assi ghat, everything was well organized and we felt our time was well spent. I strongly recommend vision holidays if you have a planned a trip. We are looking forward for chardham trip with Mr. Narendra and team. Thank you.
