Excellent guides that brought us to see things we would not have known about - also at the right time to beat the crowds! Very informative and we got great pictures too.

We were very well taken care of from start to finish. The local guides were all very friendly, and knowledgeable. Our driver, Hari, was also very friendly. I found his driving to be very safe (particularly by Delhi standards!). The hotels on the 5* option were wonderful.

Our only 'complaint' was that we were not able to see the Taj Mahal at sunrise due to the haze, but this was communicated to us prior and was out of the tour guides' control!

We were given the option as to whether to be taken to shops or not, which we appreciated. It is not compulsory.

This is a MUST tour! The tour guides were so knowledgeable and very personable. The driver was great as well. We learned so much and saw all the must sees in each city. Singh from Delhi, Mahesh from Agra, and Ashok from Jaipur were just amazing and most delightful! They were open to our many questions ranging from history, religion, and cultural practices. Our eyes were opened to the beauty of India and its people. We loved every minute of this tour!

We booked the Three Day Golden Triangle Tour with La Vacanza Travel, and as usual, La Vacanza Travel delivered an excellent experience. As we only had a few days, we wanted to see as many of the highlights of India as we could, without being rushed, and on this tour we did just that.
We started out in Delhi, where our driver and tour guide arrived punctually at the hotel to pick us up. Sites such as Qutb Minar, Himayuns Tomb, the Lotus Temple, and India Gate are not to be missed. After that we drove approximately three hours to the hotel in Agra. We had the evening free to enjoy the hotel and relax before an early morning start on day two. The Taj Mahal- well, it’s the Taj Mahal!! Breathtaking, a must see item that should be on everyone’s list. Our guide recommended we go early to beat the crowds, good call, as it was starting to fill up as we left the site.
We also seen Agra Fort on day Two as well. Another great site! After Agra Fort, we were on the road again, this time for Jaipur. It was a long drive, 4 hours, but the car was comfortable, the AC worked, there was snacks and water, and there was even WIFI in the car, an unexpected bonus! The next morning, we seen the Amber Fort, perched up on its mountain plateau. It was an excellent couple of hours there. Then we went and seen the Water Palace, explored the Observatory- very cool- the Royal Palace, seen the Wind Palace, and watched some craftsmen as they made rugs and clothes by hand.
After that it was about a four hour drive back to Delhi.
Overall, nothing but great things to say about the tour guides (as we had a different one in each city), the driver, and the tours themselves. We selected 5-star hotels and they were up to standard. The buffet breakfasts were delicious!
A special shout out to our tour guide on the second day, Seema Singhal, who took us through the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. She was very enthusiastic, friendly, and full of pertinent and interesting facts and stories about what we were seeing, stories beyond what the tour books offered.
If you’re looking to see as much as you comfortably can see of India and its culture in a short period of time, then this three day private tour is for you.
