Our accommodations were excellent. We had a fantastic time in Rajasthan and Agra. Our travel company exceeded our expectations of the trip. Everything was well planned from start to finish. We were received at Delhi airport; and until we reached our departure airport at Jaipur, everything was taken care of. This allowed me and my family to just focus on having fun. At every hotel, we had a local representative from the company receive us and take us to the lobby, while the bags were being sent to our rooms. Th prep also arranged our check-in into the hotel while we sipped our welcome juice in the beautiful hotel lobby. The rep also explained our itinerary for the next 2 days there. The guide would arrive promptly as per the time decided. The guides selected were great; gave us information while in the car and at the site; and even took us shopping to the local stores. Having a personal guide throughout allowed us to just enjoy our sightseeing. The guide took care of our tickets, and entry into the very crowded monuments. We had a 11 stare tempo traveller with us during the entire trip; this was extremely comfortable and my kids had flexibility of walking around in the tempo on long rides. It was also good on the bumpy roads between Agra and Ranthambore. Our accommodations were excellent too. The hotel in Agra and especially the hotel in Ranthambore were gorgeous. The people were extremely friendly and accommodated us very well. The hotel in Jaipur was beautiful; they even allowed us late check-in during this busy time free of charge. Our hotel rooms were upgraded by our agent in 2 of the 3 hotels, which were just beautiful. Our tour designer and his team were very responsive to our needs right from the time we decided to go with their company until our trip was done. Someone would call me at least every other day to check and see if everything was going ok. I even changed my itinerary a day before and our tour designer not only made the change, but also arranged for a guide to go with us at our recommended time. All in all, it was truly a luxurious experience. We felt like the Rajasthani royals!!
The most memorable experience was at Ranthambore. We stayed at Taj vivanta in the Temptation suites, which we were upgraded to at the last minute. The suites were beautiful, like the old British colonial style. The people serving at this hotel are extremely nice, simple and honest. We heard lots of tiger stories from the staff here. We took 2 safaris, but didn't get to see the tiger in our first safari. So for the afternoon safari, our travel company arranged for special safari in zone 3 with a naturalist and driver combination that were committed to showing us the tiger. We saw the tigress Arrowhead up close and was the most thrilling experience ever! it was a special feeling for us and the kids that we will never forget. All of the staff at Taj Vivavnta catered to our needs; we felt like being at home. The chef showed us his organic garden. They got familiar with our tastes the first day and would get something made specially for us without even asking. My daughter has allergies to certain things and made special meal preparations just for her. We would get fresh aloo parathas, tandoor rotis, etc. The food was absolutely delicious as most of the vegetables are grown in their garden. Even he carrot halwa was made with the garden carrots. Eating dinner outside with live Rajasthani folk music was unique experience that we will never forget.
And of course, the beauty of Taj Mahal is unparalleled! It is a must see if one visits India.
Maybe spend more time in each place.
