  • It's a long day to visit both Ellora and Ajanta sites, but the selection of caves on this tour hit the high notes. I was well-pleased with my visit.

  • We wanted to do both caves in one day because we were on a tight schedule. The guide was excellent and we did not feel like we missed out on anything.

  • Wonderful places. Knowledgeable guide. The driver didn and #39;t give us filling of save drive.

  • We weren't sure we could get adequate time at both Ajanta and Ellora caves on just a day tour, but we are now. The driver and guide were excellent, and the tour started at 7am -- unlike the 8am noted in our confirmation and a follow-up email. The guide was excellent, an archaeologist who had worked at both sites. He not only knew which caves to spend the most time in, he gave us a tremendous amount of information and provided enough time for us to thoroughly enjoy each site. Bathroom stops were arranged very well -- believe me, this is important as there are very few good places to stop along the way. Also, lunch at a hotel was far better than what we could have gotten at Ajanta. All in all, a terrific day tour.
