    This was a mesmerizing tour. As a Black Female Solo traveler, I was a little nervous about what to expect from my male guide and driver. My guide Prashant Singh was very knowledgeable and very attentive. He even gave me his socks when I couldn’t bear walking on the hot stone floor when shoes were not allowed. He catered to me..I told him I was a “Black Queen” and he treated me like royalty lol My driver sukhninder singh was a quiet but friendly gentle soul. The Lotus Temple’s beauty is indescribable. And the other two were phenomenal. We stopped for lunch at a clean restaurant. Good Food *They were “required” to stop at a shop and that was not so pleasant, the workers really pressure you to buy I felt safe the entire time. If you are a female traveler..feel confident to book this tour..

    OK Tour to the Akshardham Temple and the Lotus Temple. Our tour guide picked us up at 9am and we headed to Akshardham just for opening time, which meant it was not crowded and we got to see everything with no delay whatsoever (apparently this temple gets very crowded on weekends, so I very much recommend a week day visit). The Lotus Temple visit followed, which is basically just for the picture as we did not entered the temple itself as we were told there was nothing there. We then visited a Crafts shop which was basically an Emporium. My husband and I do not enjoy these sort of visits as salesmen are usually very insisting and almost force you to buy. I guess there is a commission if we buy, but honestly is an unnecessary (and uncomfortable) stop in the tour. After that we headed for lunch and there was an agreed menu apparently, we were not asked what we liked or wanted and rather place several plates of tasteless food in front of us. We were told the lunch was paid for, however we had to pay our beverages as only tap water was included. Worst meal I’ve had during my last 2 weeks at India. We concluded the tour at a Buddhist temple which was a nice detail from our guide as the temple included in the tour is the Singh temple which we had already seen in a previous visit. We very much appreciated he took us there, as we got to see something new. Tour doesn’t include water which for me was odd; I’ve done 7 different tours in India and they all included cool bottled water several times during the day; specially on summer time. Regardless of how nice our guide was, this is the only tour I will not repeat. It’s very expensive for what you actually get from it and I believe there is a lot of (simple) things to improve.
