What people are saying about Udaipur

It was a great experience, nothing unnecessary, no shops and lunches (just when we felt really hungry we asked our driver to find something for us and he found a really tasty and cheap cafe). Several more words about the driver. He was the best ever! He was really experienced (and fashionable in his multicolored turban))) with a great sense of humor and quite good English. Unfortunately I forgot his name. You do not really need a guide visiting those places, and we were honestly told that. Everything was prepaid, we were given audio guides for Ranakpur. So, it turned to be one of our best tours in India (together with Taj). Ranakpur is for sure a must-see place, an incredible one.

It has been a real pleasure to share today with our guide Nitin, with whom we have made the visit to the fort of Kumbhalgarh and the Ranakpur temple from Udaipur. The explanations he has given us have been very useful to understand the history of both sites. The restaurant that has led us to eat has been of very high quality and has advised us correctly in the choice of dishes. Fully recommended excursion for those who want to visit Kumbhalgard Fort and Ranakpur Temple from Udaipur.

Dear Sir, the trip to the fort and the main temple was very exciting, both buildings are astonishing in size or beauty. Nitin did again a great job and shared his excellent knowledge with me very recommendable. The driver of today was very good and drove us safely the very long distances. Thanks for providing such good people for my trip. Best regards, Juergen

awesome experience of cooking Indian food with Neelam, Nimu and family we got to see and prepare many dishes, Laxman took photos of steps and given to me so I could focus more on cooking.

The trip was excruciating. Well coordinated. The guide and driver were very knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend them to everyone.
