  We both were a bit nervous at the thought of dealing with India direct but all was very well planned, Mohit saw us through the hole tour and it was faultless, the palaces were fantastic colonial throw backs in time, we had a fantastic time, thanks to our guide who never left us in any position that we felt uncomfortable.an unforgeable time was had by both of us, thank you.   Graham Leslie

  I planned a South India tour from Chennai to Kochi. I asked from many different travel companies but I got the best and cheapest offer by 'Way to India'. That was two weeks travel plan. We visited so many wonderful places and we got enough time for some individual program too. In the first week we visited the historical places like temples, museums and some beaches. In the second week we visited amazing natural attraction. All happened at exactly fixed itinerary. We traveled with a comfortable panoramic mini bus and the bus driver (Mr. Ram) was very kind and talented who could manage a good restaurant for dinner and lunch every day. The recommended hotels were correct and better than the chosen category. The connecting with 'Way to India' was a great experience for us and Mr Mohit was very pleasant and flexible for our request. All in all believe that this was the best choice for traveling. I'm sure we'll go back in India again because we found many kind friends at there and we would like to organize travel again by 'way to India'. thanks for all you have done for us thank you so much

  It took a year of planning to suit a budget and unique needs for 10 people. Patience and support for that one year and throughout the travel experience was excellent leaving no area wanting.

  I am so delighted and grateful that I found Way to India. I was nervous about doing a trip by myself, as a young woman, in the Himalayas and it was important for me to find a trusted company to arrange my trip. I searched long and hard but once I spoke with Mohit at Way to India, I knew I found the perfect company. Every question I had or issue I needed help with was handled immediately, proficiently, with excellent service that really went above and beyond. All of the people connected with the company that I met or spoke with are extremely helpful, friendly and an absolute pleasure to deal with. The itinerary created was just perfectly tailored for what I wanted and was done with a lot of thought and care. They stayed connected with me through the entire trip to make sure everything was going well. Really, I did not have to worry or think about anything. I will use them every time I come back to India! I highly recommend to all my friends and family and to anyone who wants a memorable visit to India.   Aditi Banerjee

  Thanks to Waytoindia for 10 day in Rajasthan- Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Udaipur, Mount Abu and Ahmedabad. Everything from pickup from Jaipur airport to drop at Ahmedabad airport was very smooth. The hotels booked in Jaipur and Udaipur were amazing. In Jaisalmer the camel ride and Jeep safari though a bit expensive was a good experience. The car and the driver for the entire 10 days was very good. Thanks to the driver Mahesh, who drove the 2 ladies for the entire 10 days safely and dropped us in time for the return flight to Bangalore.

Overall it was a memorable trip customized by Way2india for us. Thanks to Ankit.

    Gardens
    • Mehtab Bagh: The beautiful, lush garden is located just north of the Taj Mahal, overlooking the majestic Agra Fort and the Yamuna River on its opposite side. The stunning views from this garden make it worth visiting on your Agra Fatehpur Sikri tour.

Your Agra Fatehpur Sikri tour packages include Mankameshwar Mandir, located in Mantola. The ancient temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is believed that the Shivlinga was founded by Lord Shiva himself during the Dwapara era and us all covered by silver.

    Best Places to Eat in Agra

    • The Mandarin: If you love Chinese food, The Mandarin is one of the best places to visit. The interior is warm, cosy and inviting. Besides delectable Chinese delicacies, the restaurant also serves Mughlai food.

    Offbeat Things to Do in Agra

    • Cuisine Tour: If anything can beat the charm of Taj Mahal, it is this 4-hour tour of Agra’s gastronomic delights.

    Shopping in Agra

    • Sadar Bazaar: It is Agra’s most popular markets, located near Agra Cantonment Railway Station, and known for handicrafts, marble products and souvenirs, shoes and leather items.

    Tips to Make Agra Tour Memorable and Hassle-Free

    • Beware of pickpockets which are most common in the Taj Mahal complex. It is advisable that you do not bring your valuables when you visit the Taj Mahal
    • Local tourist guides can be really troublesome and nagging at times. Remember, there is nothing like “you have to get a guide.” Avoid fake tourist guides (in name of government registered) who would charge you almost double for entry tickets and other charges.
    • If the Agra Fatehpur Sikri tour package does not include visit to a nearby Marble Factory, stay away from anyone pushing you to visit it.
    • While shopping, negotiation is a must. The items are priced almost double here. Moreover, there are many agencies or shops who would say they are run by the government, but are actually not. In fact, a local guide would push you to visit and buy from these stores, but the prices are exorbitantly high.
