    Traveling with Agate Travel, we didn’t have to worry about anything. We had a great experience of visiting so many famous attractions during the 8-day Golden Triangle tour with Varanasi. What impressed me most was the Ganga Aarti Ceremony in Varanasi in the evening. The whole scene was spectacular and many Indians went to the ceremony for worship. It was well worth watching!

    The attractions in the golden triangle were great, but I like the Ganges River more. It was very sacred and the local life of Varanasi were also unmissable! An early morning boat ride on the river was an unforgettable experience!

    The sunrise was breathtaking and don’t miss the chance to take pictures! This 8 days Golden Triangle tour with Varanasi was a great choice!

    In Jaipur, our guide was quite responsible to remind us not to hang out at night.

    My mom and I like the Amber Fort most. She bought a beautiful dress in the hotel lobby for taking great photos in the grand architecture. The price was relatively low, so this 8-day Golden Triangle tour with Varanasi was quite cost-effective!

    High praise for our driver! He was so nice to carry our luggage & keep the car clean & prepare pure water… Sometimes when we were stuck in a traffic jam, he would take the initiative to chat with us in the car. He is a very positive young man, and we like him very much. Recommend you trying curry! It is super good with rice!!

    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!
