Akash and Vincent organized a trip to a lesser known place named Vetalwadi fort and I was glad to join. It was a well organized tour with some new experiences for me. We had delicious breakfast and lunch, along with a great view of fort. They are really doing best to develop sustainable tourism in Maharashtra. I would definitely recommend them and would love to join for next trips.

We used Akvin Tourism to arrange a car & driver and 3-day itinerary in Aurangabad and a wonderful homestay and would wholeheartedly recommend them. We were given a warm welcome at the homestay in a beautiful, clean room with home-cooking and the opportunity to spend time with and get to know the family. Akash is friendly, gentle, knowledgeable and well-travelled – perfectly able to bridge the culture divide for Western tourists. We only spent three days with them but felt like friends on parting. Our tour included the incredible Ellora, Ajanta and Daulatabad Fort as well as more local sites we might not have found for ourselves. The service was excellent and we felt very comfortable asking questions and for advice/ideas without any obligation to commit more than we wanted to. I only wish we’d consulted them more ahead of our trip as we’d have stayed longer in Aurangabad: Akash and Vincent’s enthusiasm for Aurangabad’s history and culture is very infectious – we couldn’t prolong our stay but have been inspired to read more about its incredible history since leaving.

I visited Nashik with Akvin Tours when they were setting up the tour. Nashik is an amazing city, many interesting, culturally diverse places to visit. It is a holly and ancient pilgrim site and for this reason there are countless temples. This was something I was very interested in as I could learn a lot about the culture and history of Maharastra. If you you are interested in temples, culture, way of life in India I can highly recommend Nashik. Huge market that is happening throughout the day and night in the city centre. We also went to a vine tasting session outside the city, which showed a totally different, modern side of India. I found Vincent and Akash super kind, helpful. They are very passionate about the tours, very knowledgable and curios to learn more.
