I want to thank Kiwi n tiger team. Me and mum visited India 21st Jan to 4th Feb. Tourist visa was arranged within 24 hours. We were welcome with gift and garland. I was amazed with their service😊.
Great guides! Their kindness and their obligingness are exactly what one awaits from adventure guides. Me and mum felt safe and comfortable through out the journey. The tour was super, the selected sites and places were very beautiful. I explored New Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, udaipur and Amritsar. Hotels and restaurants were excellent! really appreciated the team Mr Vishal and Dilip. We were well looked after by them. I highly recommend Kiwi N tiger. their service are too good. They communicate really well. well organised. love the food and different culture. Shopping was fun. every thing was perfect. 16 days went really well with them. No time was wasted. looking forward for another trip soon.
