I highly recommend this tour if you want to get away from the noise and congestion of Delhi.
It's a long drive to and from Rishikesh and Haridwar but you get to see a lot of rural India on the way. The areas themselves are not as crowded with tourists as Agra or Jaipur would be (certainly not when I visited in late November).
My driver/guide Kamlesh was very professional, knowledgeable and experienced, so ask for him if you can.
Would I do this again? Absolutely!
