The Golden Triangle is so called because of the triangular shape formed by the locations of New Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan on a map. Delhi, the political capital of India, Delhi, makes up one of the cornerstones of the golden triangle in the country's north. Finding its genesis in the great Indian epic the Mahabharata, as Indraprastha, Capital of the Pandava princes, today the city has transformed itself into a new incarnation. Agra is a medieval city on the banks of Yamuna River was founded by Sultan Sikandar Lodi in 1956.

    I know I am pretty late after my holidays in submitting my feedback, maybe I need another holiday. Just to say that we had a great time in Kerala in visiting the various places. The arrangements made through your company with Anju Malavia were excellent and were as promised. Just a few pointers in that care should be taken when arranging visits on places of interest in that for us as muslims to have seen more of islamic history with other sites as optional. Also for the driver to be aware of where the mosques for prayer time are as well halaal eating places. Also experiencing the windy roads and travel time a +-70km per day should be considered from destination to destination in order for it not to be so hectic. Overall I would not hessitate to book another holiday through Anju nor have any problems referring others through you.

    We used Monks and Monkeys Travels for a trip to Kolkata and Odisha in Jan 2014 and everything went without a hitch, although we travelled to several destinations, used trains and had different tour guides for different places. The tour went off pretty much as per the itinerary with the proposed hotels and program. Team was very responsive and reply quickly to emails. We'd use them again if we travelled to India.
