    It was an excellent tour.Our 5 days in India were amazing. All the sights we visited were lovely.Exceptionally knowledgeable guides made our visit to these sites more entertaining. All hotel were excellent and comfortable. They offered us great service and amazing food. Not to mention,we are now in love with Indian food. All in all, this is the best tour we had in years.Swastik India is doing a wonderful job in making their customers happy and offering them the best of India.

    3.5 - Good

    I would rate this tour as adequate overall for seeing the main sites in Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, hence the average star rating. You will have a local guide in each of the 3 cities, which is fine and potentially the same driver (we had a different driver in Delhi but after this it was the same guy from Delhi to Agra to Jaipur and back to Delhi). Suggestions: 1. Having an itinerary with estimated times of departure and arrival would help. I realise this can change but better than having no idea and having to ask each day. 2. Entry fees; whilst the trip notes say entry fees are not included, I would suggest adding how much each attraction costs so that travellers can do their own research as to whether they want to. Almost all the sites cost something (most 200-500 rupees, Taj Mahal 1100). This will avoid surprises and help with budgeting. 3. Tipping awareness. Local guide in Delhi recommended 500 rupee per day each for both driver and guide. This seemed high relative to the cost of food etc and it also felt like an expectation. I understand different tipping cultures but the guides in Delhi and Agra were adequate at best so I didn't feel the need to tip them yet I was reminded a few times I should (by our driver too), I didn't. Our guide in Jaipur was really good and engaged with us so I felt more than comfortable tipping him. Our driver was nice but threw paper rubbish out the window on a few occasions, opened the door to spit and was on his phone quite a lot. Safety aside, it just meant we were going slower between cities so the trip took longer. Tipping him felt a little forced and really only because I was leaving India so had rupees to get rid of (he dropped me at airport). Accommodation (all nice for 3 star): 1. Delhi (Hotel Florence), room nice, bathroom nice and food reasonably priced with extensive authentic menu options. Good WiFi 2. Agra (Taj Villa), room adequate, smaller menu but still enough and moderately priced. Average WiFi 3. Jaipur (Harnawa Haveli; this hotel is owned by the people who run Swastik from what I could tell - the office is upstairs and the hotel is a renovated house). Rooms nice, bathrooms nice, food menu small and more expensive than other two hotels. The guy working there spoke little to no English (which is acceptable usually except that he came to my room to take my order for dinner, assuming I'd be eating there, didn't know which was Coke zero/diet and couldn't tell me if the chicken was boneless. It took an hour+ for small butter chicken and plain naan). Breakfast was a bit awkward as it was only me and the guy stood there and watched me eat in the quiet restaurant area. Very very slow WiFi which dropped out often too. Unfortunately the worst of the 3 hotels. I'll also add that I was on the tour with 1 other person. She was nice, but had chosen to stay at different hotels to the ones Swastik use. This unfortunately meant that we were further away, affecting pick up times and commutes (in Delhi it was 45mins away, Agra only 10mins and Jaipur 25mins). Just worth noting this as it could be frustrating for people, I hope they would not do this for multiple tour guests. All in all the tour does what it says and it was enjoyable to see the sites around the Golden Triangle, especially the Taj Mahal. Hopefully some of the suggestions above will make the tour more transparent for the next travellers.
