This review is to say a massive THANK YOU to Anu for looking after myself and my 5 friends while we toured a small part of India. Anu is passionate about India and is extremely knowledgable about her country. She is very easy to get on with and treated us like part of her extended family. I believe we were so lucky to spend 10 days with someone who really wanted us to enjoy their country, kept us safe and let us experience some of the wonderful sights, food, culture and artisan works India has to offer.
Our tour of India with Anu was an experience unrivalled by any other guide in the World. Anu's love of her country and knowledge of Indian history was delivered to our group (6 dear friends on a school reunion adventure) with great detail and enthusiasm. Under Anu's care we experienced the very best of what India can offer - beautiful palaces, temples, forts and mosques, World Heritage sites, food, blessings, elephant rides, cobra charmers, rickshaws unique sight seeing experiences with "surprise of the day", sunrise on the Gange River at Varanasi, sunset on the lakes of Udaipur, meeting with artisans and having the opportunity to purchase mementoes direct from the people that have passed their skills down for generations. Our tour of the Taj Mahal will forever be remembered as one of the most magical days in our lives. Dressed in colourful saris and henna artistry we were made to feel very special and like "celebrities" for a day. Thankyou Anu for a fabulous, unforgettable experience in India. I highly recommend Anuradha as your Guide in India.
Anu is the best guide! We are a family of 4 (2 children 17 and 11). She was our guide for 2 days in Agra: Agra Fort, Moon Garden, Taj Mahal and Fatehpur Sikri. She is very patient and knowledgeable. She is a not only a fantastic guide but also a wonderful photographer! Many times our holiday pictures exclude one member of the family but not this time. She took the time to ask my family to adjust our positions and frame our shots. We ended up with so many shots that were beautiful and immediately ready to share with friends and family on social media. We have booked many photo tours in many countries and we can say with confidence that she is very talented. We were only sorry that our travel company did not book the entire Golden Triangle (Agra, Jaipur, Delhi) tour with her. We would recommend her services to anyone planning a trip to India.
