    Die Zeremonie in Haridwar war absolut sehenswert, ansonsten eher langweilig, außer man mag die Abgeschiedenheit, aber dafür muss man nicht das Geld bezahlen, dass man für diese Tour bezahlen muss. Wenn man kein Fan von Yoga ist, gibt es aus meiner Sicht keinen Grund nach Rishikesh zu reisen.

    To witness history and tradition in these two beautiful towns was amazing. I appreciated my guide/driver, Ajay, who explained the temples, practice of dipping, and local features. He was also a very safe driver. I recommend this trip without hesitation.

    After celebrating hardcore Holi festival this massage gave a lot of peace and relaxation and made the whole day incredible 🙌 thanks for such a treat...

    Our tour of Rishikesh and Haridwar was most enjoyable. Our driver and guide Rana, was really friendly and he was very knowledgeable of all the sights. Rana was excellent at explaining all the history of the monuments and sights. He made us feel at ease and was very patient whilst we took our time looking at the sights and taking photographs. The trek to the yoga huts and the Beatles bungalow in the Chaurasi Kutiya was very interesting and most enjoyable. Rana was a very good driver and made the journey enjoyable by explaining all the places of interest on the way and by engaging in general conversation. Thank you.

    Just back from two excellent days in the care of Ajay. We drove together to Rishikesh from Delhi - 6hours passed in a flash as he taught me about the country he loves so much. We made an unplanned stop to help make some sugar patties - huge fun. At last in rishikesh Ajay had a fabulous local guide ready to escort me across the Ganges to my Beatles Ashram destination. Later Ajay and I headed back to Hardiwar for the wonderful and moving aarti ceremony Today Ajay got us back to Dehli in just 4 hours and didn't touch his horn once (yes it does work!). We shared a superb lunch in South Dehli before saying our farewells Ajay was great fun, an excellent and safe driver and a fascinating tutor. Thanks Ajay

    We had a wonderful tour of the Hardiwar nad Rishikesh. Our driver and guide for the tour was Rana who was very friendly and pointed areas of significance on the way. He was very open to conversation and this really helped in creating a very friendly ambiance. He was very patient with us as we did take our time in visiting the monuments. Rana is an excellent driver and guide. He gave us an excellent guide of Chaurasi Kutiya (the former ashram).

    Ajay the driver was simply the best. He spoke fluent English and made the long trip very enjoyable and was a safe driver. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking to make the long day trip.

  • 03-Jan-2020

    We had such a great time with our guide/driver Ajay! He did not only give us excellent explanations about various sites, but also shared with us stories about him and his family. It was a great way to get authentic views about Indian culture. Ajay’s passion and friendliness made this one of our best tours ever! Thank you!

  • 02-Jan-2020

    I would recommend this day trip without hesitation. The organization was easy, communication was amazing and the day was well planned. Mr Ajay was an excellent guide, full of useful information in fluent English and is a definite safe driver. He made sure that I was safe and happy throughout. This is definitely the tour for everyone to take. See a different side of India with amazing people to guide your way. Thanks so much for this excellent beautiful day.

    We were extremely impressed with all aspects of the company and our guide Rana. From our initial communication to the tour itself they were top notch. Rana was extremely knowledgeable, an excellent driver and spoke good English with a very understandable accent (something that is not always the case in India). Although the day was long, Rana paced it well and we thoroughly enjoyed our time touring. We highly recommend Mam Holidays and Rana.
