Itinerary Details

Day by Day itineraryDay 1: Ahmedabad – Jamnagar (315km/6hrs)

Ahmedabad is the right choice to begin different Gujarat holiday packages.

Start this tour from Ahmedabad and enjoy a day trip to Jamnagar.

Lakhota Museum (10:30 a.m. to 02:00 p.m. and 02:30 p.m. to 05:30 p.m.; INR 10/50 per Indian/foreigner) on the lake island is another attraction worth visiting as it houses many interesting exhibits like pottery, swords and a whale skeleton.

Day 2: Jamnagar – Dwarka (150km/3hrs)

On the second day of Gujarat holiday packages tour, visit the holy town of Dwarka, which served as the kingdom of Lord Krishna.

While the original kingdom is believed to have sunk under the sea, the present day town is a prominent Hindu pilgrimage destination.

Popular activities include leisurely strolls and breathtaking sunset viewing at Dwarka Beach, a holy dip in Gomati and feeding flour balls to the fishes.

Day 3: Dwarka – Porbandar - Somnath (200km/ 4hrs)

Get ready as we take you to another popular attraction of Gujarat holiday packages, the Jyotirlinga Temple of Somnath.

On the way, stop at Porbandar where the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi was born.

After some rest, visit the grand Somnath Temple (06:00 a.m. to 09:30 p.m.; morning aarti at 07:00 a.m. and evening aarti at 07:00 p.m.) where Soma (Moon) performed tough penance to please Lord Shiva and get rid of the curse of darkness, as per the Hindu mythology.

The Chalukya Architecture style adds to the temple’s grandeur, while the vast sea seems to guard the temple’s divinity.

Later, you can explore other attractions near the temple and return to the main temple for the spellbinding evening aarti. Overnight stay at the hotel.

  • What to Eat? Just like Dwarka, Somnath also has small eateries and dhabas where the delicious Gujarati snacks, sweets and thalis can be enjoyed. Hotel Somnath Sagar is popular for Kathiawadi cuisines and Paras Bhojanalaya is a well-known dhaba with quality Gujarati food. Surbhi Restaurant, Sugar N Spice and Iceberg Icecreams are some other good options.
  • What to Buy? Look for Gujarati dress materials, wall hangings, quilts and miniature idols at the local bazaars around the main temple. There are some interesting showpieces and handmade items adorned with beads, shells, mirrors, sequins and other similar materials that are worth buying.
  • Other Attractions: Bhalka Teerth (where Lord Krishna’s feet was hit by a hunter’s arrow), Panch Pandav Gufa, Sun Temple and Triveni Sangam (confluence of three rivers, Kapila, Hiranya and Saraswati) are some of the famous tourist places you can visit depending on the time available.

  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.

    Travel Tips For Gujarat Holiday Packages


     

    • The best time to choose Gujarat holiday packages is the winter months (October-March). If you wish to avoid crowds and improve the chances of seeing Asiatic lions at Gir, but can bear high temperature, March-May is the ideal time.
    • When at Dwarka and Somnath, make sure to be dressed up traditionally and avoid revealing clothes.
    • Somnath Temple doesn’t allow entry to the non-Hindus. However, you may contact the temple authorities who grant permission after knowing your details and purpose of visit.
    • Leather items like wallets, belts and purses and electronic gadgets are disallowed at these temples. You can store them at the free lockers near the temples or keep them safe in the hotel rooms.
    • At Somnath, don’t miss the tempting prasad of ladoos (cost INR 20 for two pieces), one of the interesting highlights of Gujarat holiday packages.
    • Don’t visit the beaches in Diu after it gets dark as there are no proper lighting facilities.
    • Permits for Gir National park Safari are booked online in advance (usually, all the permits get sold online itself). WaytoIndia team can help you in this.
    • The early morning safari at Gir is the best one.
    • Weekend and festival time safari trips are usually over-crowded.
    • Dress up in pastel colours (green/brown), avoid making noise and smoking inside the park.
    • Sunscreens, sunshades and adequate amount of water are the must-to-carry items on safari.
    • Carry driving licenses on Gujarat holiday packages tours if you wish to enjoy scooter rides in Diu.
    • Though, winters are not harsh, carry sweaters especially for Gir, if you plan the tour in winters.
