We had enchantment time and my children (8&12) continue asking to return. Anybody going by India ought not do Europass sort adventures(unless you are 20 years old). What you need is a dependable organization to take you places,show you Gems and bring you to a decent lodging around evening time. Our trip organizer Harsh was highlight of our trip.

We were a large group travelling from around New Delhi and from New Delhi to Jaipur and Pushkar for 8 days. We all had a great time and Harsh from creative india journey was really attentive to our needs and we got exactly what we wanted out of of trip. As a group we were really demanding and changed our plans at the last minute, but Creative India Journey were super helpful and made a great effort to make sure that our needs were met. Devinder, our driver was so nice and was really concerned with us having a great time, he was also a great driver, which that made the long drive from Pushkar to Agra much easier to endure. The hotels were perfect for us, with good locations and great staff. We paid a very modest price for our amazing trip. I could never have imagined to get so much for just a student budget and I really recommend Creative India journey.

I am from Houston, TX and I booked my tour with Creative India Journey a month before the trip. My entire immediate family (except my husband- who had work) attended this trip and we had issues coordinating since they all live in NY. Given all of the stress of booking a last minute trip, I was doubtful that we would find any available tour, especially at a decent rate. I googled various companies and sent inquiries to a few. I received a response from Creative India Journey pretty quickly and it was very informative and professional. After reading tons of reviews on Trip Advisor, I decided to go with Creative India Journey, because people spoke highly about them.
In the end, I am ecstatic that I decided to book with this company, because this trip was one of the best tours my family and I ever had. My experience with Harsh and his company was excellent and is beyond 5 stars. I have to admit that I was skeptical at first because there is a company named Creative India Holidays (be aware of this confusion and don';t get the companies mixed up), and wanted to be sure that I would be getting exactly what was quoted. Harsh was very responsive throughout the planning process via email and answered all of my questions. In addition, this company accepts payments through PayPal and it made me more comfortable dealing with them, in comparison to other companies that only have a wire transfer as the method of payment.
My trip was very unique, because I was short on time and had to fly to another country on the 4th day. I had to switch his itinerary around to better fit my schedule and he was very helpful in this whole process. I went with my two kids (ages 1 and 4), both my parents and my brother. The hotels we stayed at were amazing, especially the Marriott in Jaipur and the breakfast served in all of the hotels (which is included in the cost) was absolutely amazing. There were several options to choose from and I believe it';s better than most hotel spreads in the U.S. The customer service at those hotels were phenomenal as well and I felt very comfortable during my stay.
Our driver, Sahab Singh, was also great. We told him we were starving when we arrived at the airport in New Delhi (at 5:30am). He took us to this very clean and modern restaurant (but still very ethnic) and the food was delicious. He realized that we only wanted to use toilets and throughout the duration of the trip, he would let us know which stops had toilets and which wouldn';t (and therefore indirectly told us we had to go now or wait another 2 hours lol).
The coolest thing about this company';s tour is that you get a different tour guide in each city. The driver remains the same, but the tour guide changes. These tour guides are locals and know a lot of historical and present day facts. I read up on each city via Frommer';s and had a lot of questions. The guides were able to answer most of my questions and I actually learned a lot of new things. Of course the best part of the trip for most of my family was seeing the Taj Mahal, however the other parts of the trip were equally cool (in its own unique way).
I highly recommend booking with this company. Harsh is awesome and very professional. His employees are equally great and provide fantastic customer service. You totally get your money';s worth with this tour.
After spending 14 days at a yoga retreat in the South of India I went north and spent five wonderful days traveling the Golden triangle with Creative India Journey.
From the onset Harsh was prompt and professional with his communication, responding to all my questions and ensuring all plans for the trip were clear and in place. Harsh accommodated my hotel requests and other tweaks throughout the trip to explore retail options that he had to take the time to look into. The guides in each city were knowledgeable and polite and their suggested places for lunch/dinner were delicious and in most cases not flooded with tourists. Harsh was available 24/7 and checked in every day to make sure all was going well, as a female solo traveler he made effort to assure my security and comfort was priority.
I am so pleased I went with Creative India Journey and would definitely be calling on Harsh again when booking my next trip to India with the family. I highly recommend Creative India Journey.
