MY BEST TRIP TO INDIA start here :
Recently my partner and I spent two weeks travelling in India. We booked our tour with Swadeshi Journeys based primarily on a recommendation. The personalize package that we booked with Mahabir Singh and his son Girish turned out to be exactly what we wanted. The tour was very good value that could not be matched by any Australian group that we know of. When we were organizing the trip there were some key places we knew we wanted to go
(Delhi- Agra- Jaipur- Varanasi) but we left a lot of the planning up to Swadeshi Journeys. The result was a smooth itinerary that was a lot of fun, covered the key sites we were keen to see but also allowed us time to relax. At one point we received a train delay due to fog but Swadeshi Journeys quickly reorganized our travel plans with a minimum of fuss. As a result, we didn’t miss any of our planned site seeing. I am extremely thankful for the way we were looked after by the Swadeshi Journey’s team!
At all airports we were met by someone from Swadeshi Journeys, who ensured that our transfers ran smoothly. We had a polite English-speaking driver at all times with a very comfortable car for the whole trip. Our driver for most of the time was Kedar who was fantastic and made us feel very safe on the hectic Indian streets. The other drivers we had were also polite and made us feel comfortable. For each day of site seeing we had an English-speaking guide that was organised by Swadeshi journeys. All of our guides were polite and importantly, extremely knowledgeable on the history of the sites we were visiting.
For our itinerary, we flew into Delhi for three nights where we saw sites such as Akshardham temple, the Red Fort, Old Delhi and the Lotus temple. Next, we spent three nights in Jaipur where we had an elephant ride, visited the Amber Fort visited Jantar Mantar and more. After this we traveled to Ranthambore national park taking up the sites of rural Eastern Rajasthan along the way. We spent two nights in Ranthambore and went on two jungle safari tours. We were very lucky to see a Tiger here in winter and this was a highlight of the trip! Next we spent a night in Agra to visit the Taj Mahal, which is more impressive in person than I could have imagined! We then returned to Delhi as we transferred to Varanasi. We spent two nights in Varanasi where we toured old Varanasi and attended the Aarti ceremony on the banks of the Ganges, took a morning boat ride on the Ganges and visited Sarnath and the Varanasi Hindu University.
Our trip to India was magical, partly due to the great people and organisation at Swadeshi Journeys. For anybody considering travelling to India, I thoroughly recommend it and I thoroughly recommend the services of Swadeshi Journeys.
