Had an amazing tour of Delhi (Old vs New) with Vivek. He was very knowledgeable of Indian history and culture, including different world religions originating from India. Always on schedule, with right pacing for every tourist attraction. Also, lunch food was great! Will recommend.

I recently went on a trip to India with Joyful Holidays, and I must say it was an incredible experience! Sonia, the owner of the company, has done a fantastic job of creating a travel company that not only provides employment opportunities for women but also ensures that every detail of the trip is taken care of.

Throughout our journey in New Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, and Varanasi, Sonia was constantly in touch with us, making sure everything was perfectly coordinated. She even arranged for food during our flights to and from Varanasi. The drivers and tour guides she organized for us were not only friendly and punctual but also treated us like family. They truly made us feel welcome in India.

The trip to India with Joyful Holidays included the cities of New Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, and Varanasi. These cities offered a diverse and enriching experience, allowing us to explore the vibrant culture, historical landmarks, and spiritual essence of India.

Each city had its own tour guide, and they were all amazing. They suggested fantastic restaurants along the way, allowing us to indulge in the delicious culinary delights of India. The hotels Sonia arranged were also excellent, providing us with comfort throughout our trip.

I must give a special shoutout to Praveen, our driver, who was not only kind and caring but also became a great friend. He was very attentive throughout our tour and we had great conversation with him getting to know him and a little bit about his family. Along the way, he suggested restaurants for us to eat and gave us a lot of insight into India. He just made our trip experience extremely enjoyable. Even now as we are home, my kids, and I think of Praveen and reminisce about the great times we had touring with him through India.

Vivek, our tour guide in New Delhi, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He knew a lot about the monuments in New Delhi and also arranged for a great tuk tuk ride through the streets of Chandi Chowk, a vibrant bustling shopping venue in New Delhi. he provided us with great background information in history on all the places that we visited in New Delhi. Truly great having him as a tour guide.

Shiv, our guide in Jaipur, made us feel right at home, and like Vivek, was extremely knowledgeable of all the places that we went to see. Even when a couple of issues arose with traffic and congestion at certain sites, both Praveen and Vivek quickly rearranged the itinerary so that we could maximize our experience .

In Agra, we had the pleasure to tour with Raj, and in Varanasi, we had TJ. Both of them were incredibly knowledgeable and gave us a great tour of these beautiful cities.

Sonia also organized a memorable excursion to an elephant sanctuary, where we got to interact with these magnificent animals and learn about their conservation. We even had the opportunity to enjoy home-cooked meals with locals, experiencing the true hospitality of India.

I want to express my heartfelt thanks to Sonia and her team at Joyful Holidays for providing us with such an amazing and heartwarming experience. If you're planning a trip to India, I highly recommend booking with them. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!

This was a wonderful experience as a single female traveler from NY. The tour company is female led and the owner Sonia gave special attention to details and coordination. You’re on the road quite a bit with 3-6 hour traveling day to day and 2 days start at 5:30-5:45am. I opted for the 5 star hotel stays. Manage your expectations as a 5 star in India is not equivalent to 5 star in NY or Dubai. It’s more like 4 star but very much still worth it. The Driver Shiva was AMAZING! He was professional, respectful, calm with reckless drivers on the road, communicates in English well and I felt safe with him at all times. Highly recommend Shiva for single female travel! I had 3 tour guides of which 2 receive honorable mention; Vivic in New Delhi was knowledgeable, great sense of humor, engaging and a good photographer. Rajesh Parashar in Jaipur was also knowledgeable with great understanding of history and astronomy. It was a pleasure learning from him.

This tour is perfect for anyone looking to experience the non-tourist side of Dehli! During my tour we spent the time walking around the streets of Old Dehli (which I would not suggest doing alone as a tourist). We got to see the fruit market, spice market, and textile market. You are on your feet quite a lot but at the end the driver offers you nice cool water so you feel refreshed.

This tour was great! It gave us the flexibility to see the stops we wanted to see. Raj was extremely knowledgable and great to talk with about history, life, religion and politics in India. I highly recommend if you’re searching for a tour of old and New Delhi!

I went on a 6 day journey across North India with another solo backpacker and my guide Sanjay! We had an amazing experience… Sanjay was generous, kind and recommended great places to eat and visit so we could experience the Golden Triangle to the max! I would highly recommend Sanjay and this trip to anyone considering! Love from Australia

Our driver, Shiv Kumar, was fabulous and was a big reason the trip went so smoothly. I highly recommend him. We were told we would be staying at 5 star hotels but really they were just OK. One problem in Jaipur was that we had our evenings free but were so far outside the central city. But we managed to get around on Uber.

We booked this tour with Joyful Holidays through Viator having read all the previous excellent reviews. Ms Sonia founder of Joyful Holidays met us at our hotel on the day of departure and was available should we have needed to contact her at any time during the tour. All the arrangements prior to starting the tour were made with ease and any emails were replied to without any delay whatsoever. Our driver Mr Shiva was excellent and we really enjoyed travelling with him. He was a valuable source of information and did his very best to make the trip as enjoyable as possible for us. We were met with excellent guides at each location who made the tours in Delhi Agra and Jaipur really informative and enjoyable. It was invaluable having a private guide to make the most of our time in the different locations.

With only 1 week for our first trip to India, Joyful holidays, not only made it all so easy, but ensured we were very well looked after in every way and on every step of the journey through the golden triangle. We were met personally by Ms Sonia who gave us a wonderful explanation of her company and ethos. The itinerary was well documented and her contact details provided should we need to get in touch. We had an excellent driver, Mr Shiva for the whole 5 days. He was very polite, prompt and took good care of us at all times, providing us with snacks and water when necessary. All accommodation was excellent as were all private guides in each location.
I would highly recommend Joyful Holidays to anyone considering a trip to India. It’s been a wonderful trip and excellent value for money.
