I can’t believe it. Yes, seriously I can’t believe that such a vibrant place even existed. India is very beautiful. I loved communicating with the locales in Pushkar and apart from this, the most important thing- the handicrafts here are amazing and literally I loved shopping!

Dear Max,
I travelled to Pushkar in the year 2017 during the Pushkar Fair which is held once in a year. In 2017 it started in the end of October. I and my husband arrived in Delhi then we had visited many places, Agra, Jaipur, Pushkar, Udaipur & Deogarh. I heard about Pushkar Fair from one of my friend and found it quiet interesting, so I thought taking a trip to this place with my husband. While searching I came across the website of Max Holidays and found their itinerary interesting, so decided to ask them to make arrangements. The staff re-organised the whole itinerary according to our preference, I would highly recommend this company to my friends and family. The guide was really helpful; he helped us throughout the trip. The hotels were amazing, most important the tents in Pushkar during the Pushkar Fair were an amazing experience.
With Regards,

07 Oct 2022 I like to start with thanking note to the entire team of Max Holidays for organizing such a fantastic and well organized trip to India for me and my husband. It was our first trip to Asian countries. In the beginning we were little nervous to be frank but the reason for choosing India is because of my friend Anna who shared wonderful stories of India, its people as last year she traveled to India.

I was so fascinated and moved by the way she narrated her story and experience. It was an inner call that I should visit this beautiful and incredible country. Anna insisted me not to miss Pushkar fair and also referred me Max Holidays who give personalized and tailor made package and that is what I was looking for. I came in contact with Ms. Vidushi who listened to every tinny details of our requirement and put together an amazing tour plan for us. It was very impressive tour plan and we could not ask for more. When we arrived in India, we were greeted in Indian style with garland and Tikka and after that, it was like living a long awaited dream. Everything was exceptionally well like the hotels chosen for our stay, our driver Mr. Kailash who was not just good but was great, guide in every location was good except the guide in Bundi who did his job but was not so good in English but yes a place like Bundi which is not so popular so it was acceptable. Main highlight of the trip was Pushkar fair which is considered as the world’s largest cattle fair. We participated in many activities like playing cricket, dancing with local folk dance group and many more.. An outstanding way to get closer to Indian culture.

Thanks once again Max and Ms. Vidushi for putting up such a wonderful trip for us and we will sure that we will return back next year and this time for Kerala as I am reading a programme on your brochure about Kerala. Stay in touch and keep up the good work.
