I would recommend Easy Tours of India as for their good service, high standards, quick response and comprehensive staff! Tried once, i ll do it again if I would have another visit soon, hopefully.

The trip was well organized and the logistics impeccable which resulted in a smooth trip from start to finish. The guides were terrific (especially in Varanasi, Jaipur and Udaipur),and we loved our driver Deepak. These folks went above and beyond to make our trip as easy and enjoyable as possible. Our sincerest thanks to you and everyone who helped make our trip so memorable. We will be sure to refer friends to your company.

Easy Tours is very easy to work with. They are flexible to customer needs and are able to make last minute changes even from India.
What could be better:
1) Guides in India were not up to expectations. The one in Varanasi appeared dis-interested and the one in Kathmandu had more energy, but was not very knowledgeable.
2) Easy Tours should check on how the trip is going - we did not hear from them unless we called them for changes. Once contacted, they responded to facilitating the changes very well and very promptly.

Really wonderful experience with Easy Tours. Door to door service with very nice drivers and your guides. We were there during a bit of a monetary crisis, so we had no rupees the entire time we were there, and the guides and drivers used their own money for tips etc so that we wouldn't miss out on the experience. I would definitely book with them again, it was truly a stress free way to explore!

I would highly recommend Easy Tours of India. I went to India by myself because no one would go with me so I decided I would try a tour group. There were only 3 others in my group which I liked. Hotels were top notch and the guides were awesome. I also travelled to Nepal with them prior to my trip to India and I must say I was humbled by all of it. I've been to 37 countries in my life and India was my favorite. I would go again and use this tour company. They treated me like royalty!
Review by Laonna Jituri2 years ago
On our second India tour with Easy Tours, we had another great experience -- our guides were flexible and personable, making stops that reflected personal interests, helping us navigate the currency crisis when we ran out of cash, scouting out the best bakeries for samosas, and, in one area in the south, repeatedly asking local people where we could spot elephants until we finally did. I appreciate that Easy Tours tailors your itinerary, providing as much support as you need and free time when you need that as well. When we had to make an itinerary change in the middle of the trip, Easy Tours was responsive and helpful. Their hotel contacts are excellent.
India provides surprises every day -- festivals, amazing markets, temple blessings, elephant families in the tea plantation, and more. Easy Tours was a great facilitator, and we look forward to yet another trip.

We worked with Easy Tours in Texas to design a semi-custom tour for 9 days around the "Golden Triangle". They were very easy to work with and accommodating to our needs. But the real magic happened when Easy Tours in India took over.
Chandni was very attentive and responsive to all of our questions, always emailing me within a short timeframe. Once arriving in New Delhi, we met our tour director, Abid Ali and driver, "PC". Both gentlemen were INCREDIBLE. "Ali" was friendly, very knowledgeable and took care of every detail, anticipating our needs and questions each step of the way. PC was always calm and cool while driving along the chaotic streets of Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, and all the way to Ranthambore. They made a great team and made the adventure that much more special.
We stayed in Oberoi's throughout, except for the Imperial in Delhi. These magnificent hotels became our oasis every afternoon and evening. Great rooms, amazing food, and incredible service were hallmarks at every stop.
I recommend Easy Tours, Abid Ali, and PC with all of confidence in the world. They will give you the trip of a lifetime.

For those with short attention spans: Easy Tours rocks. You will not go wrong letting them handle your tour needs.
The longer story: We decided to visit India pretty much at the last minute, and we knew that we would need expert help in booking hotels and managing our visit. India is probably always a challenge for western tourists to visit for the first time, and our visit could have been complicated by the "demonetization" that had just a few weeks prior been established (withdrawal of all 500 and 1000 rupee notes, introduction of new 2000 rupee notes in very limited supplies). Easy Tours handled these challenges with skill and grace. Based on our preliminary desires, they suggested an itinerary, make hotel reservations, and contracted for a driver and several guides for the time we spent in India. In all respects their work was flawless, and we cannot recommend them highly enough. The driver was amazing, always getting us to our destinations on time and safely. We spent a lot of time in the car with him (obviously) and he was fun and enlightening to talk with over the course of the week we had in India. The guides were without exception extremely knowledgeable about the sites and monuments we visited, and seemed to know all the right people to make our visits efficient and enjoyable. All the Easy Tours staff and contractors that we worked with were clearly concerned with our satisfaction and safety, and they went out of their way to make sure that the trip was progressing as planned.
It's difficult to imagine anything that Easy Tours could have done better; their planning and execution were flawless and the price was quite reasonable, in our opinions. To repeat, we recommend Easy Tours without reservation and will almost certainly book another adventure with them in the future. This is clearly one travel company that knows what it is doing and that does it well.

My husband and I booked a trip using Easy Tours to India. We had an excellent time and honestly I can not say enough positive things about this company and our trip. All of the tour guides where very knowledgeable and were very prompt. We were able to see and do all of the things that we requested and had a great experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone traveling to India!
Review by Changxing Tigg2 years ago
Out of extensive research amongst New Zealand and foreign tour companies only Easy Tours appeared to offer everything we wanted – small group, luxury hotels, tour director and guides, and a comprehensive flying/driving 22 day itinerary from North India to South India with a 3-day Nepal add-on for February 2017. We were not disappointed.
The hoped for “small group” was just that; only two of us in Nepal, six of us for the time spent in Delhi, Varanasi, Agra, Ranthambore, and Jaipur; down to four for Udaipur, Mumbai and Aurangabad; and back to two of us for Cochin and Kerala Backwaters. The small numbers allowed the Tour Director and Guides to provide us with individual attention and flexibility which would not have been possible in a large group.
Accommodation and food was exceptional. Easy Tours had advised us that the hotels in Nepal and Varanasi might not be quite as good as the others but they too were totally acceptable and offered everything one could want. Staff were attentive, food delicious (we ate buffet the whole way but á la carte international fare was available), everything was scrupulously clean, wi fi was a little “iffy” in places but that was not the hotels’ fault. Lunches were taken in good and surprisingly cheap restaurants recommended by the guides. Nobody in our group suffered stomach upsets.
Arpita, our Guest Relations Manager, phoned several times to ensure everything was to our satisfaction and our guides and drivers were professional and exceptional in every way.
Raja Gautam in Nepal had the knack of showing us exactly what we needed to see in a relaxed manner, added in a couple of interesting walks, and immersed us in Nepalese history, politics, religions and life-style, so we came away with a much better understanding of this little known country.
In India, our Tour Director, Hitesh Sharma, who travelled with us by plane and mini-bus, from Delhi to Mumbai and all stops in between, was fantastic. Hitesh has an encyclopaedic knowledgeable of his country and an enthusiasm to match. He is also personable and incredibly kind and considerate. Nothing was too much trouble. He, along with local guides and our drivers, notably Deepak, did everything possible to ensure our trip was comfortable and smoothly and safely run. We will never forget the little bar of chocolate at the start of the day’s itinerary, the cough sweets for those suffering from traveller’s cough, the readily available supplies of cold drinking water, the hand sanitizer at every stop, and last but not least, the breathtaking driving expertise!
In Cochin, our number reduced to two, we were royally treated by Francis (facilitator), Vinayan (a relaxed and highly knowledgeable guide), and Thilakam (driver) all of whom went out of their way to ensure our stay was informative, entertaining and individual. Aside from the anticipated tour programme, Easy Tours arranged (at a small charge) an unexpected highlight - a day tour of an Eco-Village, with lunch and a rest-room provided as our flight did not leave until late in the evening. Our driver Thilak’s great pride in this, his own village, his knowledge about tropical fauna and flora, and a visit to the village school and a local home, gave us an insight to the area which we would not otherwise have had.
We cannot speak highly enough of Easy Tours, their organisational skills, the quality of their staff and the high standards they impose every step of the way. We recommend them wholeheartedly.

Easy Tours is an exceptional tour company in their attention to their clients from beginning to end. Our Easy Tours travel advisor gave me all the time i wished in discussing our proposed itinerary. The guide and driver we had were professional, knowledgeable and always pleasant to be around. Easy Tours management once we were on the trip personally checked up on us a number of times to make sure we were happy and there were no issues. We felt very well cared for. Loved our trip. Once of the best.

Everything was perfect! From the hotels booked to the drivers and guides! The whole trip ran smoothly and everything was done to insure that we had a wonderful trip. We certainly did! Cannot offer enough praise to Easy Tours!
Review by Onfoot2 years ago
Pierce and Chandni are stellar performers in the game of travel planning. This vacation exceeded all of our expectations and we have relatively high standards. The guides were fountains of knowledge. We got only two "I don't know" s during the entire trip. The questions were inane anyway.
We arrived on the first day of India's financial crisis to closed ATM machines or hours long waiting lines when they were open. The company advanced us 2,000 Rupees on our promise to pay when we got home.
One guide in particular, Amir Kahn (in Delhi, Agra and Fatehpur Sikri), was the consummate professional. He went above and beyond the call of duty on two occasions covering our expenses when credit card systems failed - again on a promise to pay when we got home.
Two Thumbs up for Easy Tours of India
Review by Tzamakos2 years ago
We did the 18 day history and culture trip that covered much of central India. Started at Delhi and ended at Mumbai. India is wonderful and Easy Tours made it especially enjoyable. Our guide, Hitesh Sharma, was terrific. We'll be booking through Easy Tours again.
Review by Hajo2 years ago
Recently returned from a wonderful 2 week tour of India. Wasn't sure which tour company to use and spoke with many. Found Easytours online and spoke with company owner Sunil Trehan who immediately came across as honest, knowledgeable and experienced. His suggestions helped us save money without compromising the quality of our trip.
Once in India, at every location our travel fascilatator was there to meet us. Our private vehicle drivers were excellent in navigating the streets of India. We had one driver for 5 days from Agra to Delhi (Bharat) who went above and beyond to make us comfortable and kept us supplied with water, sodas and chips. Our guides were uniformly excellent and very responsive to what we wanted to do and see.
We stayed at a variety of hotels and without doubt found the hotel staff and excellent service at Oberon and Taj group of hotels the best we have every experienced in all our travels.
Without hesitation I can recommend Easytours and will use them again when we do a South India tour.
Review by Somerglaze Sapalo2 years ago
No complains. Always in time, ready to help. Combination of driver and guide very effective.All of them first rate. I had problems unrelated to the company, and they did their best to help in any possible way, always checking how we were doing. I will use easy tours again in the future.
Review by Ketna Supulniece2 years ago
We did a 19 day private tour for just one couple. Throughout the planning process they were accessible and adaptable. They offered excellent guidance for sequencing and for time in each area. We had many interactions with the Dallas office and with the in-country coordinator in Delhi. Responses were prompt and responsive on issues ranging from hotel options, the visa process to restaurant recommendations.
From the initial meeting at the airport we felt we were well taken care of at every step. We had a regular "Tour coordinator/Guide, Hitesh and Driver, Raj and drove between cities except for all of the trip excepting Varanasi and Mumbai where we had to fly. This was extremely comforting as we did not have to adapt to different personalities in each city as you sometimes have to do. Hitesh was exceptionally knowledgeable and eager to explain both the specific sights and the history and culture of his country. Raj was a calm driver in a sea of chaos. When we flew within India we were escorted to the airport up to security and reliable met upon arrival in Varanasi and Mumbai. Since we had the same driver and car we were, on Hitesh's advise, able to pack a carryon bag for Varanasi and leave our main bag in the car with Raj where it was securely locked in the company yard. This saved us considerable time and hassle at the airport. We were in India during the currency change and Hitesh did an excellent job of scrambling to find legally usable cash for admissions. We saw a number of tourist unable to get into the Taj Mahal because they did not have either the new money or enough small bills. Later the main office came through with wads of 100 rupee notes. Our in country coordinator, Chandni, called us at our hotels several time to check to see that everything was going well.
One strength of Easy Tours is their local coordinators in all the major tourist cities. Notably in Rathambore, the local coordinator knew what areas of the National Park had been sighting tigers recently and was able to get us into those areas rather than the random process most tourist dealt with. We did see four tigers (mother and three cubs). When we went to Mumbai the local guides are unionized and are assigned in order. Easy Tours had no control here. Nevertheless, an Easy Tour rep was there to introduce us to the local guide and to insure that she understood the itinerary.
All in all Easy Tours is a solid company that provides comprehensive and reliable service in designing and implementing a custom tour of India. Highly recommended
Review by MrNeeeFo2 years ago
We traveled as a family of 4 (2 parents, 2 adult children) with Easy Tours (ET) for 10 days during December 2016. ET picked us up at our hotel in Delhi and took us to Agra and then to 3 destinations in Northern India in the state of Rajasthan. During this tour we traveled in an 11-seat van with a dedicated driver (Rajesh) and his assistant (Ramu). Both of them were so professional, personable, and excellent in every way. Rajesh was a fantastic driver! Driving in India can be a scary proposition, but we never felt nervous with Rajesh at the wheel. We had every confidence in him.
I also have to praise Chandni and the crew from the Jaipur office of ET. We were in India during the currency crisis and they went out of their way to help us acquire some rupees. Also, one of us discovered that his Indian visa expired 2 days into our ET tour and he needed to deal with it right away. We were in Jaipur at the time and ET went out of their way to guide him through the process of visiting various government offices. In particular, Prashant Sain was with him every step of the way and we are forever grateful for his assistance, along with that of our guide, Rajiv.
We went to 4 destinations with ET (Agra, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur) and at every hotel we were greeted like royalty. The ET staff took care of check-in while we were plied with delicious drinks and floral leis. All of the hotels were wonderful and I'd especially like to laud the Jai Mahal Palace Hotel in Jaipur -- a great hotel!
At every destination we were supplied with a local guide. All of these guides were extremely knowledgeable and personable and we learned so much from all of them. In particular, Rajiv in Jaipur was very dear to us and we had the great pleasure of spending 3 days with him and seeing amazing sights.
This was the trip of a lifetime. I don't know if we'll ever make it back to India, but if we do, we'll be calling Easy Tours to book it for us!
Review by Raifer Gein2 years ago
I chose this tour because of the very small group and the itinerary. I had never heard of the company before, and felt I was taking a bit of a chance. I was not one bit disappointed. the group was only SIX travelers total, so we were able to have a small bus, which proved to be helpful. All of the travelers were ready for lots of activity, and we walked for hours almost every day, seeing all of the sights that had been promised, plus some surprises, too! Our guide was a historian and very knowledgable. He was also generous in many ways, sharing family stories, answering any questions we had, and showing us the Real India. The accommodations were all excellent. In the cities, we were in palatial luxury hotels. In the country, we enjoyed luxurious lodges. All had impeccable service and outstanding breakfast buffets. The sights we saw were awesome, in the true sense of the word. The palaces and forts and tombs and markets, full of art, color, dazzle, and massive size. I loved the People!! So kind and friendly and beautiful. I dont think there are 2 saris alike, the variety was stunning. Flowing, glowing fabrics on the lovely ladies. We took part in 2 wonderful festivals, too! We were at the Pushkar camel fair, where we rode camels, saw a funny camel race, rattled through the fair on a camel cart, saw handsome horses being traded, and enjoyed all the booths of handicrafts. Shopping throughout the journey was really top notch! We went to several places where the arts were being produced. They gave us demonstrations of their age old techniques still being used. Then we bought from inventories of very high quality merchandise. I shipped a carpet home, and it arrived the day after my return in perfect condition. Well, I could write a book here! But that gives you the idea. I recommend Easy Tours of India with 5 stars!
Review by NewYorRican2 years ago
We have used Easy Tours of India twice, the first to North India (including the Pushkar Camel Fair) and the second to South India (including a fantastic cruise in the Kerala Backwaters). Every aspect of both tours was arranged perfectly and competitively priced. Our itineraries were well-paced and comprehensive, and we enjoyed fantastic lodgings, excellent guides, and trustworthy drivers (a must in India!!) We give ETofI our highest recommendations.
Review by Perga Berazzah2 years ago
most customer service works fine when everything goes routinely. when there is a problem, you really find out what the product or service is worth. does the provider make excuses or do they really problem-solve? the ability to improvise, if necessary, or do what's inconvenient for the company but provides solace for the customer is what constitutes first class treatment. Easy Tours delivers this consistently. forget your tickets at the last stop? no problem. Chandni took part of her weekend to make sure they were found and delivered to my next destination. Get a bad cough? Mr. Singh took me to a shop to get antibiotics. drivers and guides were very good although their language skills were not always easy to understand. but what an effort they made! wonderful trip that lived up to my fullest expectations.

I went on the Golden Triangle tour and it was a wonderful experience. The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. Our driver was amazing and just great to be around. I liked being able to go to the monuments without having to wait in the long lines. Overall it was a great time and I'd recommend this tour company to everyone.
