Meet your tour guide at the Akshardham Metro Station (Gate Number 1) and head for the temple complex. Explore the alluring beauty of this majestic monument as your tour guide tells you about the legends and stories associated with this temple. Admire the beauty of this temple complex consisting of 234 ornately carved pillars, nine domes and more than 20,000 statues of various Hindu sages, saints and acharyas (teachers).
Stop for snacks after that. Relish the exotic flavours of Indian masala tea and mouth-watering samosas. Finally, it’s time to see the spectacular musical fountain show, called "Cycle of Life”, which depicts the cycle of birth, life and death according to Hinduism. The 15-minute fountain show takes place as the sun sets. After the show, walk back to the Akshardham Metro Station where your tour ends.
India is a vast and beautiful county with many places to visit. I worked with Gets on our time line and we visited the Golden Triangle, Rishikesh, Haridwar, Amritsar, Chandigarh, Shimla and Delhi. All arrangements had been made, this included very good hotels, fantastic drivers, good guides and all amenities.
The Taj Mahal is a sight to see, its beauty is amazing. Rishikesh is a very special place, we had fantastic accommodation on the banks of the Holy River Ganges. Amritsar and the Punjab region is very special, the Wagah Border ceremony is a must see. Shimla was larger than expected but you can still explore the old town round Mall road.
We took the train from Chandigarh to Deli, Shatabdi Express what a great way to travel, very comfortable and a great dinner on board. Full train and as with all of India very friendly passengers to guide and assist us.
The food was fantastic but remember to ask for little Spice
We had limited time in Delhi, just enough to see the main sights, we need to go back to explore more.
India is amazing but its the PEOPLE who really make India a memorable experience, their warmth and hospitality is amazing.”
The guides were all fluent English speakers with a wealth of information. We never were taken to additional shopping, etc. that we didn't want. We have traveled extensively in the world and the ability to have a car and driver for the entire trip is wonderful. Our driver, Kurban Ali, was especially terrific. Driving in India can be a contact sport, but Kurban was fantastic. Due to the distances and the road conditions in India we spent a lot of time with our driver. He was a wealth of information as well as very solicitous for our needs and wants.
We made many stops for off tour photo ops and contacts that you can never have with a group tour. My wife is a teacher, and one of the many highlights of our trip was Kurban taking us to a public rural school. My wife was just overwhelmed and loved being called the "hot teacher." We intersected with some group tours at attractions, but nothing beats being one on one with your guide. The costs are extremely reasonable (this is India) and the ability to have extended conversations is one of the reasons we travel. GeTS travel was professional and experienced and we heartily recommend them.
