At very short notice my partner and I had the opportunity to travel to India for a week. We decided to try and see as much as possible in a 4 days, before attending a conference. After a search of Tripadvisor we contacted 3 different companies for an idea of what was possible, and the cost of a tour. Mahendra at Trinetra Tours was the first to reply, with the most comprehensive and friendly response. From that moment, until our return to the UK, he made sure everything went according to plan, and for that we thank him.
We chose to do the 3 day Golden Triangle tour, with a couple of extras added on. Mahendra made some great suggestions, particularly the rickshaw ride around Old Delhi shortly after we arrived in India, which allowed us to see so much of this fantastic country as possible in a really short space of time.
Our driver was Bunty, he was amazing, he looked after our every need- including reminding us to take water with us wherever we left the car. He had a great sense of humour and pointed out loads of things along the way we may otherwise have missed.
The hotels that were suggested were just right for us, a mix of old and new, big and small. We were met at each city by a representative of the company to make sure everything was okay. The guides we had were good but Imran who showed us around Agra was outstanding. He wasn't just doing his job, he went out of his way to make sure we experienced as much as possible during our day with him and we cannot thank him enough for making our trip to the Taj Mahal all that we dreamed it would be.
The only criticism we would make is although we did want to buy some small gifts for friends and family we were taken to very obviously tourist shops with some very slick salesmen trying to get you to part with a lot of money. It would have been nice to be asked about visiting these places before instead of just being taken there.
We have already recommended Trinetra Tours to friends who are looking at visiting India, as we know they will be looked after. Their customer care was outstanding and we are sure it's the reason they are the number one rated tour company in India on Tripadvisor.
