I have recently returned from a Kiwi n Tiger tour in India with my Husband visiting Delhi, Agra, Rajasthan, Varanasi. ... We had an amazing time and saw many wonderful places and stayed in some great heritage properties which we prefer over Western style hotels, to experience the real India. Small group tours such as these also provide more flexibility and the chance to make unplanned stops at places of interest.
We had Surendra as our driver and had local guides at each city/village. Surendra was an amazing driver and shared so much knowledge and history with us. He even included us in his family activities during the Holi Festival which was very special and a great memory.
The last part of our tour to Varanasi could not proceed as flights, activities etc were cancelled due to the Covid 19 Pandemic. Although disappointing, we feel very fortunate to have had Vishal and Surendra looking after us. Vishal was in constant contact with updates on the situation. We have since heard of people in India who were left stranded with no way out! They took care of everything for us including Surendra driving us all the way back from Udaipur to Delhi to get our flights home.
Thanks Kiwi n Tiger for all the help and advice during what could have been a very stressful time.

We have just completed a 14 day Northern India tour with Kiwi n Tiger. We chose the 5 star option and this included... Christmas Eve at a Royal Hunting Lodge in Haveli and a New Years Eve Bollylicious gala event at a palace in Jodhpur. We have absorbed so much of the history of Northern India. Lots of visits to temples, palaces and forts. Each one of them unique and incredibly interesting. Vishal ensured we were taken care of every step of the way. We can’t recommend them highly enough.read more
Hi, If you are thinking of traveling to India at all, then do it, and I thoroughly recommend Kiwi n Tiger as the... company to go with. David and I did the two weeks Rajasthan tour and then added on a week in Kerala South India as well in Oct, Nov 2019. Vishal runs his company with professionalism, passion and friendliness. It is very personalised. Emailed were answered promptly, the hotels were amazing, some beautiful heritage hotels, great food and of course amazing history to see. Everything was well organised and we packed so much into each day and yet we never felt rushed or hassled. After non stop action in Rajasthan with a great blend of city and country, leopards, camels, forts and palaces, with shopping too then the week at the end in Kerala beaches, houseboat and Periyer national park was was a slower paced fantastic compliment and so different, showing even more diversity of India. Incredible India! We are so pleased we took the plunge and went there, and choosing Kiwi n Tiger was the best decision. Thankyou Vishal.read more

I have just returned from a trip to Rajasthan in India with Kiwintiger.
When I saw the advert in the NZ Herald I was... dubious about the cost and thought it too good to be true. But after looking at the reviews decided to take the risk. I’m glad I did. There were four of us in the tour and each and everyone of us can not fault the time we spent in India with Vishal and his wonderful team. At no time did we feel unsafe.
The guides we had were so informative and passionate about their country. They were amazing!
Our driver Surendre and his side kick PK looked after us with such care, always there whenever we needed them.
So patient with us. The traffic they had to drive through was organised chaos. We did not see or hear one scene of anger from anyone.
The places we went to were so historical and quite beautiful. Even in the country side where ended up as there was an unexpected detour on the motorway. It took us through villages that we would never have seen otherwise. The real India! And real people!
I would recommend Kiwintiger to anyone who asked and would also consider taking another tour with them.
Thank you Vishal and your team.
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.read more
Well you have just gota go! India with Kiwi N Tiger is a mind blasting experience. Vishal Kulria and his superb driver... Surinder along with guides Raj 1,2,3,4, and Bouphol make touring a breeze. Their ability to organise everything was amazing. Awesome sights every day from “boom” straight into the back streets of Delhi to trekking up to the Amber Fort with over a hundred elephants, to drinking masala chai at an off-road stall. Vishal has managed to capture the feel of Rajasthan from the luxury hotels to the rural scruffy outback village kids lining up for a photo.
The tour will get you to places that only astute local knowledge can, from haggling for items in a dusty crowded street to sitting in a leafy oasis restaurant just half an hour later. It would be a pity to spoil too many of the surprises, it’s best just to say we have no hesitation in recommending Kiwi N Tiger’s tour of Rajasthan which far exceeded all our expectations.

Amazing history, temples and guides well thought out tour from Vishal. Our trip was totally relaxed and full-on at the... same time. The food was all delicious and I don't normally eat Indian food 3times a day. I am vegetarian so it wasn't a problem for me to enjoy the delicacies of Rajasthan. My husband and I are both planing our next trip with this company.read more
My 15 day Rajasthan tour with Vishal exceeded my expectations. The local guides were knowledgeable and enthusiastic.... Vishal has picked his team very carefully and it shows in their cheerful demeanour and friendliness. I would like to do the southern India tour with Vishal in 2019. My 15 day Rajasthan tour was the perfect introduction to India.read more
Omg where do I start, this trip was the best trip I have had with this company. Vishal and his team really looked after... us, I felt like a prince 🤴 lol. Well i did felt like royalty, the way we were treated, was just the best. When it came to our hotels, transport, food, everything was perfect, so so good. As for the the sightseeing part, it was amazing, everything was planned out perfectly. Transport was super comfy with aircon, which you need in India, it can get hot. I’m already planning my next India trip in a couple of years with these guys, to see more of India. I highly recommend kiwi n Tiger, trust me, you won’t be disappointed. It was worth every penny I paid for this trip, and I’m looking forward to my next India trip. Thanks again Vishal for the best time of my life, see you again in a few years. Regards, Mealofaread more

We booked with Kiwi n Tiger for our 6 day tour of Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan because Vishal promised us a personalised,... easy and real India experience - and he delivered!
Vishal took away the hassle of logistics of travel and we relaxed and enjoyed the experiences. From the delicious street food to the amazing historical sites, and the general hubub of Indian life we loved it all. Thank you Vishal.read more
We wanted a true India experience and Vishal didn't disappoint us. We had a quick fire trip through Delhi, Agra, Jaipur... and Udaipur late August, early September 2018. Vishal and his team gave us experiences we would have never had travelling on our own. From street food, to amazing accommodation to personalized guided tours of temples, forts and palaces. I would truly recommend Kiwi n Tiger if you are looking at travelling to India. Many thanks Vishal for a trip we will never forget. Grant Clifford, Blenheim, New Zealandread more
My family and I travelled with Kiwi n Tiger in India from 23rd Sept - 6th October 2017, we covered... Delhi/Varanasi/Agra/Jaipur/Pushkar/Jodphur/Narlai and Udaipur.
We had always wanted to go to India so we had looked at it many times and the different ways it could be done, and as fairly experienced and independent travellers we decided India was one of those countries that could be extremely stressful to travel in, especially with a 10 and 13 year old. We also felt that the 14 days we had were going to be so precious we didn’t want to be stressed - we just wanted to absorb!
We looked into lots of different tour options but the elements that were important to us were local knowledge, flexibility (as we can be quite particular!) and feeling like we could put our trust in our tour group. Kiwi’s hate to have the wool pulled over their eyes and it is particularly awkward when you don’t wholly trust the person looking after you.
We came across Kiwi n Tiger and were apprehensive at first because they didn’t have a history, however all our correspondence with Vishal Kulria was very professional and detailed and the KnT website was awesome. But being able to meet with Vishal in Christchurch to discuss our trip was invaluable, we became infected with his passion and enthusiasm for his beloved India. We signed up immediately and it was a great decision. Both Vishal and his partner Shiv we very attentive to our requirements and very helpful with suggestions to make the most our our long awaited trip.
Once in India we were very well taken care off, our driver was excellent, Vishal helped us with bartering when shopping (many local guides take commission), we never had to think about where we were going to eat we just had to decide what we felt like, street food - restaurant - local specialties, Vishal had heaps of suggestions. Also the hotel suggestions made by KnT were great and we experienced some exceptional resort stays, Rawla Narlai in particular. We had to remain flexible because of the children and this was not a problem for KnT if plans had to change.
We wholeheartedly recommend Kiwi n Tiger for any kind of trip to India, our kids really enjoyed themselves and were treated as VIP’s as were my husband and I. India is an amazing country to travel, the culture the history (a large amount of which is crammed into Vishals head) the chaos and colour, it is all I expected and more!
Thanks Vishal, Shiv, Joni and everyone else who made our Kiwi n Tiger trip so memorable.
