    We a group of 03 Couples booked a 15 Day Heritage Tour  with India Heritage & Culture Tours in the first week of Spetember 2016.Initially at the time of boooking with them we were little relecultant and had doubts how the tour would be like but we took the chance .Our first desitination was New Delhi- our flight was delayed by 2hrs 45 mins and landed at 1:45 A.M. in the morning expecting to make our own taxi arrangements till the Hotel .To our surprise We were greeted by our tour guide -Mr.Rituraj with a smiling face and escorted us to the Hotel.The hotel was quite upstandard and the checkin was quite smooth.Since we were tired our guide adjusted next day sight-seeing timings accordingly.Next day our guide was Before time and we started our 15 day tour with him.Our tour turned out to be the one of the best tour ever as we could experince one of the best places and stayed in one of the best rated heritage boutique hotels and palaces which are still being run by the desedants of the royal families.All the heritage hotels had their own character and story to say with a persaonalized services which we cant expect even by a 5 star rated Hotels.It was fun and learning journey of an unforgetten era of Maharajas,Forts and palaces which is still alive in this part of the world- North India (Rajasthan) with its Vibrant and colourful culture .Full marks to our guide with full knowledge  and services.No second thoughts,highly recommended.

  • Bill

    I went on a 15 day Heritage tour of North India which included Delhi, Agra and the Taj Mahal as well as Jaipur and many of the lovely old palaces which had been converted to hotels and in which we were accommodated. The tour was extremely good value and all transport, meals and hotel accommodation was included. Our guide was able to give us information enroute to the many places we visited and to help in any way needed. I would highly recommend.
