We booked a premium holiday tour package organized by “Ravishing India Holidays”. Throughout, we were accompanied by a local personal travel concierge, Mr R.K, who is very professional; taking care of all the trip logistics, our comfort and safety.
It was the most memorable and exciting holiday; enjoying the beautiful mosques, temple, and the magnificent Taj Mahal. We also gained a better understanding of the Indian culture and appreciation of the India history and the building architecture.
We first toured Delhi city, moving through narrow streets by rickshaw which was unbelievable; seeing how the locals doing their businesses in their small shops and the overcrowded living conditions. We also toured Delhi, seeing the beautiful and well maintained preserved old buildings
Next, we travelled by car to Agra and stayed a night there. The next morning, we were at the Taj Mahal, one of the “7 World Wonders”. It was a wish comes true for me; standing in front of this beautiful and grand building; marveled at the fine architecture and beautiful garden. The Taj Mahal is the most photographed monument in India.
We then went to Jaipur, where we got to experience seeing the city from a Hot Air Balloon! It was a fantastic feeling enjoying sunrise, mountains, the fields and the cheering villagers waving and running below.
The final highlight of our holiday was the visit to the Tiger Safari Park at Ranthambhore. I personally never think of seeing tiger in the wildlife and sitting in an open jeep as the perceived thought was it is not safe. Accompanied by a trained naturalist and an excellent jeep driver, we made 4 trips to the park and got to see one leopard, 3 tigers and many other animals, not forgetting the beautiful scenery, rugged terrain, lakes and colorful birds. The feeling was magical; peaceful, calmness and relaxing. We even had our tea in the park. It was an incredible experience; the tremendous joy and the smile on our face when we saw the tiger.
Throughout the trip, we stayed in luxurious hotels managed by the Oberoi Hotel and Resort Group. The service standards were excellent and impressive especially at the Oberoi Vanyavilas, Ranthambhore, always delighting you with surprises; dropping rose petals on to guest’s head in welcoming them and very attentive staff always greeting guests and providing us with good information. We were pampered by the hotel services and activities for adult guests and kids too. It ranges from spa, yoga, cooking classes to block printing, making biscuits and pottery. Thanks to Ravishing India Holidays for organizing this amazing experiential trip!
