    We had an unforgettable impression on this 9-day Delhi Agra Jaipur tour with Varanasi! Through this unique experience, I would like to say that India is an amazing country where people and animals live in peace perfectly. All the attractions were visited as planned and they were worth full explorations! The pure white mausoleum of the Taj Mahal looked gorgeous with the sunrise view in the early morning! Get up earlier would be better to avoid the crowd!

    The Indian tour guides arranged for explaining the Taj Mahal and Ganges River were very humorous and professional. We had a pleasant 9 days Delhi-Jaipur-Agra tour with Varanasi in India.

    This was the first time I had booked a tour package from Agate Travel, which was surprisingly well-pleasing. The whole services in hotels and drivers were considerate. Both the accommodation and the scenic spots satisfied us very much. I had a very enjoyable trip this time.

    It was a wonderful experience far beyond my expectations. The Indian tour guides were very conscientious.
    The scenic spots were so beautiful. The spectacular Taj Mahal, the romantic Palace of Winds, the elegant Agra Fort, and the unique Ganga River, all made my 9 days Golden Triangle tour with Varanasi even more memorable!

    A lot to see in this magical country... The road condition was not very good, otherwise, we would have a more efficient trip. The food and accommodation were pretty good.

    I was a little afraid of the security before I flew to India. But there were no necessary worries with group Tours. Suggest ladies not going out alone at night. The hotels’ environments were clean and comfortable. The most important one was India's monuments and cultural relics were really worth visiting! The itinerary of this trip to India was quite reasonable. The local tour guides were very professional with detailed introductions. The 9 days Delhi-Jaipur-Agra tour with Varanasi was so cost-effective.
