What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Taj Mahal, Agra 282001 India

The Taj Mahal is a mausoleum located in India, in the city of Agra. The emblematic monument of this country, it is in white marble finely chiseled. It was built between 1631 and 1653 under the command of Shah Jahan in order to shelter the tomb of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died in childbirth during the delivery of their 14th child. Mumtaz Mahal was also called Arjumand Bano Begum. The Taj Mahal is a marvel of Mughal architecture, at the crossroads of Islamic, Iranian, Persian and Indian styles.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Agra Fort Rakabgani, Agra 282003 India

Agra Fort (a Unesco World Heritage Site) - is a historical fort along the bank of the Yamuna River in the city of Agra. It was the main residence of the emperors of the Mughal Dynasty until 1638 and one of the finest Mughal forts in India. Walking through courtyard after courtyard of this palatial red-sandstone and marble fortress, your amazement grows as the scale of what was built here begins to sink in.

Duration: 1 hour

Certificate of Excellence
Golden Triangle und Varanasi
We just returned from a 6 day customized trip with Creative India Holidays. We are a family of three from Germany (my husband, myself and our 13 year old son). Our trip took us from Varanasi to Jaipur to Agra to Delhi. Everything - except for the flights - booked over Manish Jain. He had put together a terrific trip for us. We always felt safe and comfortable - even though India is an adventure by itself. The drivers booked by the agent always picked us up perfectly on time and were driving us calm and safely through chaotic Indian traffic. The cars were reliable and very nice. Also our guides were very good. Especially the guides in Jaipur and Agra did an outstanding job. Listing carefully to our wishes, had great knowledge and a great way of telling stories. Only with the guide in Delhi we did not get along well - so both sides agreed to stop the tour. Mr. Manish Jain immediately offered us to organize somebody else, but we were perfectly fine by continuing the tour with our wonderful driver Mahindra who took us to all the best places and gave us plenty of time to explore everything. I would like to point out that we were completely happy with the organization of our trip by Creative India Holiday. Manish Jain is responding very fast always and completely customized our trip to our wishes. We highly recommend this agent. Talking about the money side: Payment 50% in advance and 50% upon arrival worked well and without complications.

Well organised, customised to preference
I arrived late on Friday night and was picked up by the Driver, Gopal. We drove around the Golden Triangle on a three day tour through Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. The driver was very friendly, and his English was okay. He even lent me his phone for over an hour to discuss with my airline about flight changes. The guides were good, and knowledgeable about each of the sites. They were more than happy to help with my questions and provided a lot of context on the history of the sites and regions. We went on a customised trip based on my preferences and the guides and driver were happy to accommodate for last minute changes on the day, even providing suggestions based on my interests. Highlights of the trip were definitely the Taj Mahal, Red Fort and Amber Fort, as well as some of the Delhi sites like Gandhi's house and the Sikh Temple. The only point of improvement on the trip was that on the second day, the driver flat out asked for a tip. I understand that its important to tip in the culture, but for me, asking directly for it cheapened the experience as I felt obliged to give one, and that everything that they were doing was only to receive a tip. Even when I did give what I would consider a decent tip ($40AUD) he seemed disappointed. That whole experience dampened the trip. Otherwise, it was definitely worth it and much better than I could have organised alone! Cheers guys!

India and Rajasthan tour
Partially great but I recommend it would have been better if we would have booked hotel rooms directly. Not even a single time Manish had asked if we felt safe as India was totally new for us. The hotel we were shifted to the last minute was more like motel. Disgusting and filthy. Our driver Rakesh was very honest and humble. Thanks to him for keeping us safe. I do not recommend to book with Manish for future travels.

Delhi-Jaipur-Agra in Two Days
it was a roller coaster ride when i had my travel in India last Sep 27-28. Many thanks to Mr. Manish who helped me alot on my short but sweet and maximized trip in India. I arrived New Delhi at 3am on Sept 7 and Mr. Bunty (driver) was already there to welcome me. we started our long drive to Jaipur of course we had a stopover along the way for me to refresh and changed clothes. when we arrived in Jaipur the tour guide met us and started the trip. luckily it was World's tourism day so most of the sites are free. it was a jam packed day, we visited the staircase well, Amber Fort (i was welcomed with a garland and the red dot on the forehead. it was like a party inside the fort and i was so amazed whats inside the fort. then we passed by the jal mahal, the palace which is in the middle of the lake. we also visited a GEMstones factory (jaipur is known to this) and also the block printing for silks. we visited the popular landmark in jaipour which is the wind palace. then we proceed to the Astrological Observatory which has amazing architectural astrological instruments. our last stop for Day 1 is the City Palace which has 6 museums inside. of course after a long day Mr. manish arranged a 5 star hotel for me the ITC Rajputana Hotel. the following day i had my breakfast and proceed to agra. good thing mr. bunty brought me to a buffet restaurant with unli barbecue it was very affordable and sumptuous. we started in the Agra Fort, what a beautiful palace and good thing my tour guide knows the trick, there was no line at line as we enter the Fort. it was a magnificent place. one of the best place inside the fort is you can already view from afar the Taj Mahal which excites me more. As we move to the Taj mahal, it was the climax of my trip, seeing the very majestic taj mahal from afar and moving closely and slowly. i went inside the taj mahal and it was really amazing. as we finish our trip, itr was another long drive going back to delhi. good thing mr. bunty is energized and even i sleep alot during the travel time, i feel safe with them. all in all creative india holidays, mr. manish gave me a one of a kind india experience. i will really recommend them with my friends.

Perfect first time India experience.
While planning our trip to India we contacted several tour agencies for information and prices. We ended up choosing Creative India Holidays not only for the reasonable price but also for the perfect communication and flexibility. Mr. Manish answer all our questions immediately via Whatsapp (does he sleep?) and was very patient with our questions and demands. We ended up booking our hotels directly and booked the 6 nights Golden Triangle Tour with driver and tour guides. Everything went smoothly, From our Airport Pickup by the amazing driver Mr. Gopal to all transfer and guides. Mr. Singh was our guide in Delhi. Very knowlegable and patient. Very good english but sometimes the accent makes it difficult to understand every word. There's alot to see in Delhi for one day so mind your time and insist that you want to see everything that is included in the tour. Next stop was Agra and with that came the highlight of our tour with Creative. Ajmal, our tour guide. Agra was a dream and Ajmal only made it better. Perfect english, photographic skills, patient and an enciclopedia of knowledge. If you book with Creative you have to ask for Ajmal. [If you are reading this thank you so much Ajmal. We will wait for the wedding invitations ;) ] On our way to Jaipur we stopped at Fatehpur Sikri. Our guide, Mr. Kaleem, althought very friendly and joyful didn't always did his best to help us with all the sellers and beggars and "made" us stop for some time at a souvenir store. At Jaipur our guide was Kumar. Very good english but again the accent was a trouble for us sometimes. At times we felt rushed. Stops at two souvenir stores. One would have been enough. We would have prefered restaurants a little bit more "traditional" but understand that the main concern was our hygiene and safeness. In short, we were very happy with our experience and would definitely recommend Creative India Holidays if you are planning a trip to India. I've read some other reviews complaining about extra charges at the end of the tour. We had no trouble with that, Just be sure to ask all the details regarding payment before you book and everything should be ok. In conclusion, with Mr. Manish fast and flexible communication, Mr. Gopal efficiency behind the wheel and Ajmal guide skills you can't go wrong.

well organised private tour but BEWARE extra charges end of trip
I recently had a private tour -for 3 people -of Golden Triangle and Varanasi with Creative India.Manish Jain was very helpful in changing the itinerary several times to get the final one.All hotels selected were great and the drivers were all safe ,courteous and on time.Guides were doing their job but running to a script and not always overly keen take away from the touristy areas especially with respect to eating places-this was not a big problem .HOWEVER when we came to paying for the outstanding payment of our trip, added bank fees ( not mentioned in given invoice and which should have been paid by Creative India) and amounts not corresponding to our quote added over AUD $200 to our costs.Despite many emails sent ,some of which were replied to ,we did not receive any refund of extra monies owed to us.If we had been aware of this up front we would have paid all monies before the trip not 50% as was requested. Whilst we can recommend the organisation itself it left a sour end to the trip due to extra charges and as such I can only give it 3 stars at best

Wonderful experience for the Golden Triangle Tour!
A small private group of three American's travelled with the Creative India Holiday's tour. This trip was planned out by the tour company which included a 5-star hotel booking at each location, tour guide per attraction and an EXCELLENT driver (Deenesh!!) that drove us safely through the traffic. Our first leg of the trip was greeted by our driver Dinesh, who picked us up from a long from from Sri Lanka. He carried our bags and off we began our drive to Jaipur, India. Beautiful city that had ton of culture, the tour guide did a fantastic job of providing historic information and giving us the opportunity to shop around the local stores. We would highly recommend this tour company to do all the booking/planning if you want to see a glimpse of India in a short amount of time! Note: - Bring your student ID's as there's discounts at certain attractions. - Tipping the guides is highly recommended - Generous tipping for your driver is recommended

Very well organized tour. Very reliable. Value for your money.
Being an Indian, I was very skeptical initially if I can trust this tour agency. But it turned out to be the most reliable agency. I am glad that I chose Creative India Holidays for our tour. Very friendly driver and guides. Gives you lots of advise for international travelers so you can enjoy the trip. Manish is also Superb, he is very well organized and communicates with you with immediately. I will strongly recommend Creative India Holidays for anybody traveling from the USA.

Inspiring Agra trip for single traveler on short notice
Friendly driver picked up on time at my hotel. The trip is very comfortable on the expressway. They guide in Agra was extremely knowledgeable, and we had good conversations about many things. On my request we also included some visits in handicraft shops, where they demonstrated marble inlays techniques and embroidery. Taj Mahal was as breathtaking as expected, but I particularly liked that we combined that visit with a visit to Itmad-ud-Daula, which is an earlier Mausoleum in a style that inspired Taj Mahal. This trip is warmly recommended for single traveler, like me, or for smaller groups.

Excellent and comfortable tour
I travelled with my family with three daughters. Mr. Manish helped me in every aspect with a quick response time. The driver Mr. Madhu and Mr. Ajmal who was Agra tour guide were exceptional. The only worry for me is that guides always take us to places to buy products which is very expensive compared to other shops. As I've heard the guide is getting a commission from the shop. The shop people are very very friendly as you enter the shop but if you don't buy anything or less items they treat you as an enemy which I didn't like most in India. Apart from that the trip was very comfortable with a good tourist coach which has everything for a tour.

Amazing Trip with Creative India Holiday
I've done trips to India with Creative India Holidays for several times and always recommend this tour to some of my friends. If there was small thing unpleasant happened during our trip, Manish and his team were always ready to help and all I need to do was called him or texted him, and he is always on fast response. This tour was great and Manish is definitely someone you can rely on during your trip in India.
