    Wonderful day tour with excellent driver.

    Guide animesh was wonderful showing best places in Haridwar and Rishikesh both.

    Both are the amazing. One of the most favourable part of the tour is Ganga Aarti which was adorable.

    Thank you 👍

    I booked a private trek as a solo female and was not disappointed. Kaly was a great guide who offered plenty of stops, offered to help me when trail was loose, and even helped snapped photos! He kept a steady pace along mine, and made sure I was safe the entire time. He knows edible plants, talks with the local villagers, and gave tips for parts of the Himalayas where he's from.

    The sunrise at the temple was great, but i was eager to get the trek down started, so I asked if we could start the trek early. He was happy to accommodate. After the trek, he offered some local tips as well, which were very helpful 🧘🏽‍♀️

    They came to pick me up on time. Since you will be guided by car, this is probably more appropriate than other options. They will tell you about the facilities they visit and details about India, so you can get a good understanding of India. Also, if you have any questions, they will answer them thoroughly. They will also take photos. Most of all friendly and helpful. I had a lot of fun going around. we have wonderful experience Ajay.thank you Ajay you made my day wonderful.

    The trip from New Delhi to Haridwar and Rishikesh was outstanding. Both locations are holy, peaceful lands and ancient cities in which the Ganga is a major presence. Haridwar is among the towns in where the Ganga exits the Himalayas and is incredibly beautiful. Rishikesh, a very spiritual town was also amazing with its various ashrams and is the yoga capital of the world. My guide Vaibhav, was excellent and apart from learning a lot from him through his extensive knowledge of these places and in India in general, was very hospitable and kind and proved more like family and then as a guide. Baldev Singh, also very kind and polite, proved to be a great driver, going from place to place with relative ease and the transportation used was roomy and comfortable. The scenic beauty and calmness that was felt all throughout these places is what I'll remember the most as well as Vaibhav and Baldev Singh, who made this trip all the more an incredible experience.

    A fascinating day in Rishikesh and surrounds. This is a place like no other we have experienced in India. It is a very long day traveling to/from Delhi, but well worth the trip. The driver and guide were both experts in their own fields, and ensured that we were safe, informed and enjoying the experience.

    Ashish has been a fantastic tour guide for this and really knows how to keep his guests comfortable, as well as giving fantastic advice for tourists who intend to go out on their own. He is also an absolute encyclopedia for all that he will show on this tour. I'm an American and it's my first time visiting India at all, I chose Rishikesh and I'm already impressed with India's people in general, and especially impressed by this tour!

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND exploring Rishikesh and northern India with Japam! As a solo female traveler to India for my first time, this sunrise day-hike to Kunjapuri Temple was the perfect way to explore the natural beauty of Rishikesh. Himanshu and Sarah are the most gracious guides and some of the kindest people I've had the pleasure of meeting -- incredibly hospitable and providing for us like old friends. Their commitment to curating a meaningful experience, combined with the natural beauty of the locations they curate, makes for an unforgettable experience. They tailored the trek to suit our preferences, ensuring that every aspect of the journey was both enjoyable and informative. Their attention to detail was evident in how seamlessly they managed logistics, from transportation to ensuring we had adequate water and snacks (and the perfect amount of chai breaks!). I am so grateful for the both of them and can't wait for my next trek with them!

    The trek to Kunjapuri Temple was breathtaking, both in its spiritual significance and scenic beauty. Himanshu's expertise in local history enriched our experience, making the visit more than just a hike but a journey through the cultural heart of Rishikesh. The visit to Neer Waterfall was the perfect culmination of our trek. Himanshu provided us with ample time to enjoy the serene beauty of the waterfall, ensuring our safety while allowing us to relax and take in the natural splendor.

    What sets Japam apart is their genuine care for their clients. Himanshu and Sarah went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and satisfaction throughout the trek and after. Their friendly demeanor and willingness to share their insights about the local culture and environment made our experience incredibly special.

    Aside from our trek, Himanshu is an INCREDIBLE yoga instructor. He is deeply knowledgeable about his craft and provides the perfect hands-on assist to refine your practice. His studio, located in Upper Tapovan in Rishikesh, artistically cultivates the peaceful and clarifying energy that is Rishikesh and her people. Highly recommend any drop-in classes!!

    Our guide Om was so peaceful and informative. We went at a great pace and he knew the best spots for us to spend time. It was the perfect experience blending the Beatles with spirituality, current Rishikesh vibes and peacefulness through the tour.

    RAJAJI NATONAL PARK IS A SCAM! Satendra Saini who you talk with is also a scammer/cheater. We came all the way from Denmark and took the Safari tour, and we saw nothing and they dont inform you about anything. There is no guarantee and the have no animals in the park, basically 5 Tigers who hide away in the winter. All you see is trees. STAY AWAY! Find something else. They dont give you any money back even though alot of people have seen nothing there.

    We got to see a ton in one day! Deebak was our driver and he got to our hotel early which was nice. He took us to both cities and gave us time to either explore with him or on our own, which we enjoyed. The cities were filled with shopping, sports activities, and beautiful views. We enjoyed the clean car that Deebak transferred us in all day!
