      Awesome family visit to konark
      The place is well maintained and despite the foot fall , entry was smooth and the site is maintained well. my mom needed wheelchair and I was pleasantly surprised to see the entry gate had people offering wheelchair at a very nominal cost

      Excellent experience
      Our experience at Bhukhara for dinner was fantastic. Myself and my guests from Charlie foxtrot aviation, Vista Jet (Airlines ) were all delighted and thoroughly enjoyed our time. This delightful experience was made possible by the excellent teamwork and leadership of Mr. Rupesh, the manager. Thank you to the Bhukhara team for a memorable evening."

      Average. View was nice but they only provide loud obnoxious music and no food. We had booked Nirvana cruises thinking less ppl would be there but it was stuffed and smelly. Hiring a chartered yatch/boat would have been better for family like us. Never again.

      Used a Different Provider, but They’re Basically the Same
      The sunrise boat trip on the Ganges is a must do and provides a clear recognition of the commitment of the people of Varanasi to the teachings of Buddha and Hinduism. It was truly fascinating to see the crowds making their way to the River to participate in this religious ritual and bathing.

      india - trip a deal 8 days Well worth it
      Trip a deal India,-8 days we missed our flight due to our misreading flight time. the company got in touch with us and we were able to rebook costing us extra for the return flight. We were met at the airport and taken to our hotel where we joined the tour group the next morning. Sunni our tour guide was exceptional, friendly, flexible and very professional. He made sure everyone was looked after and changed things around to suit the group and the crowds. We missed the first day but joined group to Jaipur on the bus. The traffic in India is horrendous but our bus driver was excellent and always drove safely. The hotels - we up graded and they were clean. Two out of the three hotels were enjoyable and clean. The trip is very busy, it is go,go , go but you get to see a lot of different things. Sunni the guide was very knowledgeable and shared lots of interesting and funny stories. He was the best. Would highly recommend. We visited Delhi, Jaipur and Agra. Trip a deal was very well organised.

      A visit to Delhi made even better by staying at The Imperial!
      The staff were absolutely amazing and couldn’t do enough for us, especially Jai Gautam, one of the managers, who went above and beyond what was expected. The decor and facilities were first class.

      Great place to visit
      Visited the centre for first time . Very crowded but loved it early morning h visit to the adi yogi , linga Bhairavi, and dhayanalingam. We were not told that the rooms will not have bath towels. Walking bare foot and long walks can be an issue for some . Also the ox being used for rides is cruelty which should be stopped . One bull was badly hurt on his neck and running against the pole. Had to tell the staff there to look at that bull and provide him some treatment . It could be from the Ali g that they put in their neck to pull the cart . That sling is of leather kind material rather than cotton / cloth so guess that can leads to hurting b their necks

      Be aware…
      We booked well in advance - and so you should as it is packed and many are turned away at the door. And the door only opens at 19:00 so you will wait with many others until they are ready for you. The food is undoubtedly delicious but do beware. The menu is certainly expensive for this part of the world but be prepared for bill inflation with 9% tax, another 9% tax and on top of that 25% VAT. To be fair the menu does state in small print exclusive of taxes at the bottom of the menu but the price you see is certainly not the price you pay.And that’s before you add in service! Is it worth it? For you to judge but if you need the washroom be prepared for a long long wait for just one cubicle.All a bit unexpected in such a luxury and exclusive environment. So be aware…

      Excellent
      What a treat! To be lifted high over the mountains in Jaipur in the early morning to see the sunrise! We were picked up from the hotel (promptly) and taken to the airfield and offered a well received coffee and biscuits before jumping in the balloon. The staff on the ground were very friendly - and payment via international credit card was straightforward. The pilot was a very humorous experienced expert, who gave us a safety briefing and smooth ride. It was really interesting to see the balloon setup and put down and the staff encouraged us to observe this and take pics. The views were spectacular and the overall experience was fabulous. I understand that a direct flight over the Jal Mahal and Pink City are not permitted, but this flight showed us the more rural areas over the mountains, and village life. Absolutely brilliant experience and service. Thank you!

      Mesmerizing Show of Sound and Light at Amer Fort Jaipur
      Attending the Sound and Light Show at Amer Fort was a highlight of my trip to Jaipur. The way the rich history of the fort unfolded through the narration and synchronized lights was nothing short of enchanting. The atmosphere, with the majestic fort as the backdrop, created a surreal experience. I felt truly transported to another era. The attention to detail and the captivating storytelling made it a memorable night. Highly recommended for those who appreciate history served with a touch of magic

      Dinner at Dakshin
      As always food was excellent with attentive and personalized service. Special mention for Avnesh and Darshan. The grilled fish as starter and the boneless mutton from Andhra Pradesh in the main course will make your mouth water.

      God’s Nirvana for chilled out souls
      Very relaxed ambience, tropical greenery, cool seas and amazing stretches of beaches everywhere. One can be adventurous with water sports or relaxed at a beach shack, indolently sipping coconut water freshly got or biting at the fresh choice of sea catch. No dearth of fancy or simple cuisine to suit any budget! But North Goa was milling with festivals and rave parties in the beach and South Goa had amazing restaurants , cocktails , music , fireworks and live bands to usher in the New Year. Flights, hotels, restaurants, and amusement places chic o block in December and Jan always , sky high rates for any accommodation or taxis! It as very warm in the day but cool breeze in morning and sunset. Overall, always fun to visit Goa in these cooler months.

      ASI management is horrendous
      Disappointed to see ASI management of Saraswati Library and palace management. Seems they are there to slowly kill the heritage.
