I stayed at Royal Heritage Haveli, for the last few days of a three week tour of India and wish I could have stayed longer. Amazing rooms, delicious food and outstanding hospitality. The perfect end to a wonderful holiday. I will definitely be recommending Royal Heritage Haveli to all my friends and family.

Just returned from a three week Family History Tour and had an absolutely wonderful and unforgettable trip. I cannot thank Indus Experiences enough for the experience. The tour was extremely well organised and the hotels and food were amazing. Indus really did go out of their way to make sure none of us were disappointed and that we got to visit and do everything we had hoped to do and more! Many, many thanks! :-)
