The trip was absolutely unforgettable as Ranveer (guide) and Shiba(driver) did amazing job throughout the day we had started from Rishikesh in the morning but as we didn't have our breakfast after leaving the hotel our driver took us to a good place where we had some tasty snacks to eat then, during the whole trip Ranveer was wonderful with his knowledge and fun loving guy. thank you

Great tour, highly recommended. The driver, Rahul Diwakar, was excellent and the two guides at Haridwar and Rishikesh were helpful and informative. This is a fascinating tour including the ashram where the Beatles stayed, and of course the spectacular sights and sounds of the faithful bathing in the Ganges. Not to be missed if you want to see an essential part of India.

The tour guide Vicky was very good and informative and explained the process of the cremation traditions. He was friendly and looked after us well. We were able to witness the washing of the body and the cremation ceremony. Would recommend

I am very glad that I booked this tour. It was a very long day but the car was very comfortable, the guide Arif & the driver Rahul were very both kind, friendly and knowledgeable. As a solo female traveler I felt safe the whole time.

the guide was fantastic, and overall a good way to know about the culture and traditions of the city!!
