        Wonderland Kashmir..
        It was a wonderful tour to Kashmir. Nature is filled with all the ingredients to call it ' Heaven on earth '. And the timing also was very good coz we experienced both tulip and snow. We stayed in Srinagar ( including 1 night in house boat), Gulmarg, Pahalgam. The tour was organised by ' Northwind tours and travels' and must say it was organised so nicely by Mr Sumit Adak( contact no.9083096975). He has taken care of everything right from the Srinagar airport.All the hotels arranged were really good.

        Lingraja Temple, Bhubaneshwar
        We visited during late evening. The temple is always crowded. A very big complex, it is. We did some pujas ( A priest helped us & also provided some information as a guide ). The distance where you are stopped and the deities are placed is much more - you need sharp eyes actually. The temple is dedicated to Bhagwan Shiva. The very tall central tower, adorning Kalinga architecture. The temple is one of the oldest in the city ( more than 1000 years old ). There are so many temples and halls inside the complex. A bit away on main roads you will find a local market - full of fruits and vegetables. Delectable.

        Magic Ladakh
        Ladakh is wonderful! Unfortunately we could only send a weekend and visit Leh. We must go back asap. The Tour Operator, guide and driver were very friendly and supportive. Absolutely a must go!

        Amazing wildlife and flawless execution
        Communication was easy via WhatsApp. All driver appointments, safari bookings and the Evolve Back Kabini resort were exactly as advertised, with the beautiful resort and safaris a true highlight. I stayed two nights and went on one boat and three land safaris in Nagarhole. This is the perfect amount if you want to maximize your chances to see i.e. tigers and get to drive in different areas of the park. I was also able upon asking to change from a canter to a jeep safari and do a stop at Mysore to see the palace on the way back to Bangalore (paid extra) which was no problem. I only had the one weekend as part of my business trip available to explore, and Agora made it hassle free, with everyone speaking English as well.

        Best dining experience in Agra overlooking Taj Mahal
        This is the best restaurant in Agra, with a stunning view of Taj Mahal. They have the best food, cocktails, and customer service. Amit and Mukesh gave us a world class experience, they have the best customer service i’ve ever seen! It was our anniversary and they made it something that we will remember for life! Can’t recommend this place enough!

        Ajanta and Ellora Cave 3 day tour
        We can highly recommend this tour to the spectacular Unesco World Heritage Ajanta and Ellora Caves. It is hard to describe and to understand how these caves were built, dated from the 2nd century BC, you just have to go and see for yourself! We would not hesitate to book again any tour in India through Agora Voyages. They were very professional, responding to emails quickly, giving advise and the payment system worked perfectly (can sometimes be a problem in India). The car, driver and guide provided were exactly as we requested. Now the roads to the caves are another story but worth the drive for the end result. Highly recommend.

        Great tour around Dehradun
        Very good day. We were picked up at our hotel on time and spent the day together with a personal driver and tour guide. Both were very nice and accommodating. Our guide Rohit showed us the sights of Dehradun and also told us the stories behind them. I can only recommend this tour to everyone!

        An unforgettable experience of India
        Agora Voyages offered us the exact kind of tour that I had required. Not only was the experience incredible since we travelled by car with our own driver, Mr Binabi Vinay Kumar, which allowed us to see this part of India so closely, but also gave us the opportunity to stop and have lunch at the small restaurants along the road and savor the habits of its people. Rajasthan is a beautiful region of the country. It has so many different landscapes to appreciate and in each city or town we visited we had our own local English speaking guides who were highly qualified not only on the cultural and historical aspects of the sites and monuments but each one gave us many insights to the cultural life that we otherwise wouldn't ever have known. The most beautiful experience, however, was The Taj Mahal in Agra. We saw it at sunrise when the first rays hit this amazing masterpiece of human craftsmanship. The tour lasted for 24 days starting in Delhi then in Rajasthan finishing in Agra. My husband and I would highly recommend Agora Voyages not only for its careful attention to details but also to its constant interest in the welfare and conforts of his clients.

        Excellent guide and driver
        Both our guide and driver were excellent, very informative and listening to our needs and how we wanted the day to go. A good walk around key places in White Town and the obligatory trip out to Auroville. The lunch was was decent for a tour (set menu in a local hotel).
