A friend and I travelled with Shine Gold in February 2018. I wrote the following review then (before they had a Trip Adviser page so I am pasting it up here as they were such excellent guides and became friends. "We have just returned from a fabulous 3 week tour of Northern India with Shine Gold. We combined historic and cultural sights with time spent birding. Everything was perfectly organised by Shine Gold to our design. They added to their skills by using a brilliant safe driver (in India this is crucial) and THE Indian birder (42 years experience and totally knowledgeable). well over 300 species seen and most photographed. We arrived as nervous foreigners and left as relaxed family members. I can very strongly recommend them to anyone and particularly to any birder."…

It was a fantastic experience to go on two weeks Rajasthan Tour with Goa through Shine Gold Tours India. Asif and Asim were friendly and knowledgeable guys. Their advice regarding tourist spots, shopping, and restaurants was amazing. We have had a great experience and a memorable trip at a reasonable price. We didn’t have any problem regarding paying them in advance. We will definitely recommend them. Regards Dil…

Shine Gold Tours gave me an authentic peek into the 'real' India. No buses packed with foreigners, no stock itinerary, no waiting on long lines. Instead I explained what I wanted to see, and they adjusted their itinerary to meet my needs. But it wasn't just 'my' India, but theirs too. They showed me delicious chai spots, hikes off the road, and temples I would never have considered. Would highly recommend!…
