We booked a Golden triangle trip for 6 days with 'Spark Destinations, my wife and I could not have been happier. Mr. Vishal was great and all the members of his team were very professional. They were also more than fair, as when we went to Agra, it was World Heritage Day and all entrances were free. As we prepaid for all the trip, we mentioned it to Vishal, and they reimbursed the difference. All guides were very good, specially the guide for Jaipur (Vijay). In general a 5 stars services.
