"The tour was excellent, enjoyed a lot , but I missed my family, therefore in my next travel I will be coming with my full family and I request the same classic arrangement. The hotel was very good, service was excellent, but i personally feel that Hotel booked should be in Nainital... But thats not an issue... The tour was a memorable one. Please provide the same facilities, excellent hotels, excellent travel etc in my next tour for Rajasthan."

Mr. Parag Puranik

"Since my first visit to India in 2010, I have known Viktorianz for about two years now. Manoj conducted us himself to the historical sites in Delhi and Agra. He has a flair for history and culture and set high standards of tour conduct. We find them to take great pains and work with passion to create a memorable holiday. My trip to Rajasthan and Agra this February was specially designed to suit my interests and my pocket. I would love to come back to India - and will always trust Viktorianz to do my tour planning.."

Anne, Sydney
