Short Description

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 went to Rajasthan and Varanasi from Oct 2014 to Nov 2014 for 16 days, on a private tour (with a driver). It was all arranged by Monks and Monkeys Travels Private Limited, through a girl named Kiran by email. Arrangement was done well, from driver, to train tickets, to hotels, to pick up and transfer from airport and train station. No problem at all. I will use this company again if I go to India again.

    Всем привет !!! С данной компанией познакомился через интернет, вышел на их сайт, потом связались по скайпу, пообщались, и решили рискнуть. Оплатили напрямую индивидуальный тур на 4-х человек (2 семьи). И не пожалели. Улетели в Дели 26.12.13, прилетели в Астрахань 12.01.14.Тур получился шикарный, очень интересный и очень познавательный.Мы совместили путешествие по 3-м индийским штатам (с индивидуальным гидом и водителем на комфортабельном авто), с передвижением так-же на местном поезде в дальние точки (в Кожурахо - в горд мёртвых храм Кама Сутры) с дальнейшим перелётом на Гоа на 5-ть дней и возвращением опять в Дели на один день , где напоследок посетили незабываемый по своей красоте, величию и масштабом храм Акшардам. Огромное спасибо компании "monks-n-monkeys", а в частности одному из руководителей Шараду за тот комфорт, за незабываемые впечатления, за ответственность кот. он нам предоставил. Отдельное спасибо нашему гиду Диду (Диджендеру) и , конечно-же несравненному водителю Раджу "Капуру", кот. водит машину просто как один из индийских богов. В общим всем желающим узнать побольше об Индии как о стране, а не просто прочесать пузо на пляже на Гоа рекомендуем тур компанию "monks-n-monkeys" Спасибо Вам Шарад, здоровья и удачи.
