My wife and I wanted to tour the religious places and also add a bit of adventure in a tour. As I am a documentary photographer it was essential that we get some good stories. We researched and finally settled for a tour with Taxi services Rishikesh. They arranged the itinerary as we wanted which was to pick us up from Delhi Airport and drop us back in Delhi at the end of the tour. In between visiting Hardwar, Rishikesh, Jim Corbett National Park, Finally Agra and Mathura in time for the Holi. The whole trip went without any problems. The driver who also served as a guide was very helpful and professional. Though some of the distances were long he managed very well the whole tour very well indeed. Plenty to see in Hardwar and Rishikesh. Jim Corbett was a bit of a disappointment as we only saw a tiger from a distance. But that is the nature of national parks. Taj Mahal is always a delight and Holi in Mathura was an experience not to be missed. It does get a bit crowded but I enjoyed the photography. We had opted for 3/4-star hotels and were not disappointed. Definitely trust Taxi services Rishikesh to organise another trip in the future.

Mahesh Rana 11th March, 2018

It was a fabulous trip with such a good tour guide telling us each and every detail of every place we visited . We would like to have our tours managed by this company in future too.

Kunal Pandya25th March, 2017

We had an excellent and uneventful trip to Char Dham. Ashish was our guide and we are glad that we chose to have him as he did a great job explaining everything in detail. Sunil chose some of the best hotels for us to stay in (many of them right on beautiful river banks) and a majority of the hotel staff were very helpful.

Customer Testimonials

John William

I am very appreciative of the great service provided by Gaurav at Uttarakhand Explore for a small group safari at Rajaji National Park. I wanted to open the trip to classmates/friends and minimize my role in the middle, including with payments and transport / group size logistics. Gaurav was very professional and clear and accommodated a last minute cancellation by reducing the price per person, since we were all able to fit into one Jeep.
