A Recent Review of this tour

We booked a 2 day tour with Raj this Oct,from 1st email, he was prompt and professional.He was always on time and extremely considerate, nothing was too much trouble. As we're missing morning yoga to see the sunrise over the Himalayas he arranged a yoga instructor to accompany us up the mountain to do yoga at sunrise-unforgettable experience!Our review would not be complete without mentioning his driver who is the best driver we have had in India so far. He took a lot of the stress out of India traffic
