"Right from the starting i.e. Delhi, I loved its cuisine. The chicken from the shops near Jama Masjid and the ride in Metro and rickshaw gave me a different feeling. The chicken tasted delicious. I loved the way the food was offered to all the people present in Bangla Sahib irrespective of their gender, age and nationality. The Havelis at the Mandawa are breathtaking. Listening to the stories related to these places made me imagine the standard of living of the kings during those days. Agra is a great place with one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Taj Mahal present here. On a whole, the trip was quite satisfactory for me. That was great! Thanks"

"This trip has proved to be a heartthrob. I was so happy here that I didn’t even want to come back to my residence. The sunset scene at Jaisalmer is alluring. That moment was very peaceful. I really wished this one to be never ending. I also experienced the camel ride that was really great. In short, I loved it! Thanks to Max Holidays. "

"My 15 days trip commencing from Delhi till Agra has been a memorable one. My big thanks to Max Holidays for making it ‘worthy of being remembered’ for me. Taj Mahal is a masterpiece. Udaipur is a peaceful place with welcoming people. The way they greeted and welcomed me is just out of this world. "

"Max Holidays has planned my trip in a well- mannered way. The trip was totally hassle- free. I enjoyed every single moment of my voyage and that too completely. The traditional food of Rajasthan is a commendable crystal to all the present culture and traditions of the place."

"I undoubtedly enjoyed the trip. Max Holidays had given me more than what I imagined. Their services, way of communication, discipline and punctuality, I found each and every thing apt out here! Rajasthan is really a beautiful trip. Loved the culture and traditions of such an exotic place that is full of colours, positive vibes and kindness."

"I must say the we had a great trip, most importantly the sightseeing was something interesting, they has some exclusive planned like the Salaam Baalak Tour in Delhi and food walk at Jaipur. Some visits were quiet interesting like Bagore ki Haveli in Udaipur. I opted for some optional tours as well. An assistance person assisted us for all the optional tours. I could travel with the group along with it at certain placed i book optional that was a private one. So, i could have experience of both group and private trip. The vehicles and accommodation everywhere was good in budget."

"I just came back from my group tour to Rajasthan. The experience travelling in a group was amazing. We started our tour in Delhi, where all the group members met at the airport and introduced to each other by Max holidays. I was travelling alone. The itinerary was well scheduled and I met many other people also from other countries travelling solo. I made a very good friend from Sydney name George. We shared the rooms also together in the hotels at all places. We had clicked many photos together and got cherished memories for lifetime. Returning back I really miss him."
