    Yolo tours was great! Everything was looked after for us, the trip was well laid out and well explained, we felt perfectly safe all the time. The local guides were also all good, very knowledgeable and friendly. Drivers were very skilled at navagating the Indian traffic. Particular highlights (aside from the obvious big attractions) were the camel ride in a remote village, and the stay at a local family in Delhi. Would definitely recommend Yolo tours for your trip to India!

    I loved every minute of it. The tour and experience was good. All the hotels were nice. We had local guide in each city and they all were friendly. We really enjoyed with our local guide Arvinder in Delhi. He showed us Delhi like a local, with him we felt like we were visiting places with a friend. Our Driver Mukesh was very experienced driver and respectful, always on time. Great Tour.

    I've had truly a memorable experience. I didn't just see India i felt it. We explored the spice market and the rooftop , Visited Indian home for home cooked meal, Visited beautiful forts and places and Rural village located in the sand dunes. Our driver Dinesh who drove us for the complete was friendly, helpful and caring. All the hotels were comfortable for a good night sleep and one of them actually had swimming pool as well. We loved being with local guides specially in Delhi Arvinder Singh. He is passionate about his work and we felt like we were traveling with a local friend more than a guide. I recommend this tour to everyone without any hesitation.

    This trip was the highlight of my India tour. I was picked up in the night at the airport by representative who gave me all the documents related to the travel and explained do’s and don’ts which was really helpful. There was not a time I felt unsafe. All the local guides were friendly and happy to accommodate my requirements. Arvinder was the best in Delhi out of all the guides. I loved off beat and local activities included in the tour like Rickshaw tour of Old Delhi and Spice market, having meal at local house (The home food was the best), Monkey temple visit. Everything was well organised and ran smoothly. One of the best tours of my life 100 % recommended.

    It was my first time in India and I will definitely going back. The tour was very good and well planned out. All the local tour guides were helpful and happy to share the culture, history and local stories. The accommodation was comfortable and clean. The tour includes many Grear activities like Enjoying home cooked meal with the local family, walking tours, visiting rural village and sand dunes. Altogether it was a great experience and I am happy to recommend this tour to everyone.

    The organization of the trip was excellent. The driver Jay Pal Singh, who were with us all along the trip, is an excellent driver, very courteous and helpful. He is a bit shy, but speaks better english than he thinks. Accommodations were not exactly as you would expect form a 3 star hotel in Europe, but overall there was no problem with them. However 2 out of 3 guides did not meet our expectations (Delhi: Mr. Ajit Tiwari (3/5), Agra: Mr. Farhan (1/5), Jaipur: Mr. Kamesh Talwar (5/5). Our tour experience in Delhi and Agra could have been the same or even better without them (just having the driver dropping off and picking up at the sights). The guide in Jaipur was excellent. Detailed review of the guides have been sent to Yolo tours for service improvement. My suggestion is to ask in advance who will be the local guide and get some review on them.
    Yolo India Tours commented on this review
    Dear Istvan , We would like to thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are happy and thank the guest for generally enjoying the tour and giving us 4.5 stars. We have no excuse or reason to adduce on behalf of the one guide in Agra who received 1 star from our guest. We will counsel him to be more active and understand the guest travelling style as no two travelers are the same. It is possible that the guide might have felt that the guest were Independent and may not be interested in detailed narration. We are sorry for this guide being not to your expectation and wish that we can undo the experience. We request our guests upon arrival is to let us know when and what issue bothers them as they happen because that is the time we can do something for you. Once again thank you very much for giving us opportunity to serve you. We are looking forward to welcome you again in our beautiful country. Thanks and Regards Yolo India Tours Family

    I recently did the Golden Triangle tour with Yolo Tours. It was so fun! Based on my experience, I gladly recommend Yolo Tours. My review applies to the company and specifically to the Golden Triangle tour of Delhi, Jaipur, and Agra. Arvinder met with us to begin our tour. He’s personable and explained everything well, so that made things easy. He also checked in with us from time to time during the tour, which was a great personal touch. The hotel in each city was good. The tour package promised 3-star hotels, but I’m pretty sure one of them was actually 5 stars. The traditional “haveli” where we stayed in Jaipur was decorated beautifully and was very pleasant, even down to the citrusy scent in the lobby. The place in New Delhi was good, and we had delicious food at both places. I was thankful for the free breakfast at every hotel. The hotel in Agra was my least favorite, although it was still perfectly acceptable. All of the places made it easy for us to sleep three to a room. Our tour guide in Delhi was nice and very informative, if a little awkward. He showed us everything we wanted to see. One time he gave us a warning that there were going to be people aggressively trying to sell to us at a certain monument. The heads-up was appreciated. However, he did also take us to what he called an “official” store for souvenirs, saying it was the best place to buy them. We bought some things, but later on we found much better prices for the same things in other cities. You have to be really savvy when it comes to purchasing souvenirs. I think the tour guides may sometimes be getting commissions from the stores. Below, I’ll mention Arvinder’s response to this complaint/concern. It happened most egregiously in Jaipur. The tour guide – otherwise friendly, knowledgeable, and funny - led us right into a lengthy sales pitch where we were the only customers. He didn’t ask or warn us about it; he actually made it sound like we were just going to be seeing a little exhibition on local textiles and gems. It was uncomfortable to say the least. The same thing happened in Agra with a marble shop. Based on the experience in Jaipur, I actually asked the tour guide beforehand if this was a sales pitch, and he said no. He said it was like a factory tour. In reality, we did get to see a fascinating demonstration of marble being inlaid with gems…but then we were trapped in another lengthy, manipulative sales pitch. After the trip, I told Arvinder that we didn’t appreciate these “sneak attacks.” If we had at least known about them, we wouldn’t have felt ambushed – but I expect the tour guides didn’t want us to skip these parts, which admittedly we might have done if they had been forthright with us. I asked Arvinder if this whole scheme is approved by Yolo tours, and he said it’s not. He promised that Yolo Tours will speak with the guides about this. (Yolo Tours was always quick and efficient about answering questions, both before and after the trip.) Hopefully it doesn’t happen anymore, but if it does, just be confident sticking to your budget, and don’t give in to the pressure. These salespeople were very good at what they do, and I can see people buying things they don’t really want. Other than this, there was one other issue that my two tour mates had. It has nothing to do with Yolo Tours, just the culture of India. They are both black women, and they got fed up with being unapologetically stared at for their skin (basically everywhere) and ignored for their gender (namely when servers automatically addressed only me, a man, at restaurants). They otherwise had a good time, but it’s worth knowing this about India if you’re going to visit. Now, for the great parts! I know the bulk of this review so far has focused on a couple of “issues,” but I hope I’ve conveyed the fact that Yolo Tours responded satisfactorily regarding the sales pitches, and they arranged a great and affordable tour for us. With the details already taken care of, we were able to be present for and enjoy everything we saw. There were so many buildings and structures with impressive architecture and amazing detail, and we got up close to some amazing animals, We ate scrumptious food every day, and we slept well every night. On top of those fun aspects, our driver really blew us away. Sukhdev is amazingly funny, friendly, accommodating, and helpful. Although he’s not old, he reminded me of my kind grandfather, who had a jolly, fun-loving spirit and was never fazed or upset by anything. Sukhdev was officially our driver but really acted as a tour guide as well, tossing out facts about everything we passed. He kept us safe and comfortable on the road and said, “You are my guest. Guest, now also friend.” He recommended clean and affordable places to eat. He kept us laughing all week. I have to say, it was sad to part with Sukhdev at the end of our tour. If I were doing another tour, I would definitely ask for him as the driver. He was one of the highlights of a great trip. Lastly, a couple of tips from my experience: Many locations on the tour, such as temples, don’t allow shoes. If you’re not wearing socks and you don’t like walking barefoot, keep a pair of socks with you for those places. I wasted time and money bringing cash to convert in India. I got an abysmal exchange rate there, only to discover that I could easily withdraw cash from the ATM with my foreign debit card, at an astronomically better rate. This probably applies to traveling anywhere, but for some reason I thought I just had to bring cash to India. Lesson learned. Once you get your money from an ATM, try to change a few larger bills for a bunch of smaller bills, for tips. Yolo Tours gave us a helpful rough guide for tipping. If you don’t keep exact bills on you for tips, you’ll keep giving a little too much each time and suddenly wonder why your money’s going so fast. To everyone else going on a tour with Yolo Tours, have fun!

    We thank our valued guest for taking the time out to make an elaborate evaluation of their tour, sharing their travel advises and reviewing our services. Yolo family is so happy to read that they rated our services as excellent. It is evaluations as these that give worth to the work we put behind the scenes to ensure a smooth and enjoyable tour. Thank you for making our day. We do take on board the comment that our esteemed guest makes about the shopping. Shopping is a global issue, especially in Asia and Africa. We on our part do not endorse it. On the contrary we inform our all the guests while explaining do's and dont's upon arrival that as part of local tours some guides may offer you to visit one or two local souvenirs shops who will also demonstrate how they make their wares and try to sell wares to you so it is completely your choice to visit or not to visit these stores.However, we have strongly counseled the guides to do a clear communication about the shopping with guest and respect their decision. We understand no two traveler are the same. Some of our travelers in the past have appreciated the help of local guides to help them with the shopping. We are specialized in customized tours where the will of the guest is all that matters. Once again a big thank you for giving us opportunity to show you our beautiful country. We look forward to welcome you again in Incredible India. Thanks and Regards Yolo India Tours Family

    This tour was organised very well and we felt like we got the most out of India in a short time. We loved how communicative the tour organiser was and how they checked in to make sure it was going well. Our driver Vikrum was very nice and helpful and went above and beyond to make our trip easy and comfortable. All our guides were good but the highlight was our Jaipur guide kamish who was not only informative but was very nice and entertaining. I would highly recommend this golden triangle tour.
