  • Great tour guide. Trip to kitchen at Golden Temple was a highlight.

  • Golden Temple visit was excellent. However Wagah Border was not. When booking we .were advised that we would have seating tickets. We did not. We were herded into a stand full of people with no room to move or to actually see what was happening. The closing of the border was a non event for us.
