Insider's Tips
The Taj Mahal looks more charming at sunrise and it is less crowded during this time. In winter (October - March) the sun rises at around 7:00 and in summer (April - September) at 05:30 to 06:00 in the morning.
The small Abhaneri village is a worthy stop in the midway to Jaipur, where you will see the huge step well built in the ninth century and experience the local village life.
The unique Ganga Aarti Ceremony is a not-to-miss experience when visiting Varanasi, which is held at the ghat along the Ganges River every day and is free entrance.
We suggest avoiding street food or tap water traveling to India. You are always suggested to drink bottled water.

    We had an enjoyable and amazing experience during the 8 days golden triangle tour with Varanasi!

    Taking a rickshaw (a local vehicle) ride at bazaar was interesting and we felt the strong cultural atmosphere.

    India is really an amazing country worth visiting to experience something you've never experienced before!

    All the guides did their best along the way to make sure we had a comfortable & pleasure 8-day India trip. Indeed, we were quite enjoyable. The guides were knowledgeable and had a good service attitude. The itinerary was satisfactory and the introductions of the spots were detailed.

    An early morning boat ride on the Ganges River at sunrise was quite easy and deserving because we saw the winding Ghats and devout disciples enjoying a bath in the river. It really made a wonderful picture!

    The wonderful quality at an affordable price was the most satisfying part of the 8-day golden triangle tour with Varanasi!
    The guides arranged were dedicated and responsible.
    The local Hindu temples and the Ganges River gave me a sense of the devotion of the Indian people to their faith.
    The sunrises over the Taj Mahal and the Ganges River had a different and unique beauty.
    They cannot be missed!

    The arrangement of our 8-day India tour met my expectations. Each city had its unique and famous sites for us to enjoy. And the Taj Mahal was my favorite one. The pure white marble building exuded a sense of holiness and piety. It was worth a look!

    The attractions covered in our 8 days India tour were all classic and worth visiting! Especially, the Taj Mahal and Ganges River were the must-see ones! The meals provided in the hotels were good and the naan bread was quite acceptable. The route of the India (Delhi - Agra - Abhaneri - Jaipur – Varanasi) tour was fantastic! If you go to India, make sure you pick it!
    PS: The air quality was really not good, remember to wear a mask!

    My parents and I regarded it as our common memorable experience! The tour guides were very knowledgeable and showed us all the classic attractions in India: Jama Masjid Mosque, Agra Fort, Taj Mahal and Ganges River. We were all quite satisfied with this 8 days India tour!

    It was an amazing 8-day Golden Triangle tour with Varanasi! Actually I had never written a review before!! The itinerary was a little full, including north India’s distinctive attractions. India was really a country beyond my expectations! I changed a lot of stereotypes of it. In addition, I definitely recommend the route and our local guides. The tour guides were very experienced and organized. During the whole trip we all got along with super harmony!

    It was an awesome 8 days Golden Triangle tour & Varanasi! Hotels were four or five stars. It was safe to have meals at hotels. I think Varanasi was the most charming place of Indian style and culture. Also, Taj Mahal was really stunning! Highly recommended! The tour guides were all enthusiastic, responsible, thoughtful and patient. Very excellent service!
