Had a wonderful trip. Very well organised by Gets as staff were very helpful with quick response. Varanasi Classical Music Trip was not as expected although the guide Rangit tried his best to make the best of it . He was excellent. All the guides appointed were very knowledgeable. The driver Ganga was very good. A very safe driver. Khajuraho Temples & Khajuraho Dance Festival was amazing. Overall an excellent Trip. Thank You Gets.
