Pushkar Fair 2019

With more than a hundred years old history, Pushkar fair is the world’s largest livestock fair that brings Pushkar back to life, which otherwise remains serene for most of the times in a year. Host to sparkling events and activities, the Pushkar fair is one of the most intriguing cultural shocks you will experience in India. Visually appealing and enchanting, a day at the Pushkar Fair promises unlimited fun and experiences that last a lifetime. Hop on this roller coaster ride that promises a visual explosion of beautifully adorned camels, Rajasthani men & women dressed in their traditional attires, folk dance performances and bizarre competitions you can only find in Pushkar, the famous town perched on the banks of the Pushkar Lake.

Originally conceived with the intention to draw in cattle & camel traders for business, the fair has now become one of the largest gatherings of the state and surpassed the trading part with a great number of events and activities arranged by Rajasthan Tourism.

When and Where?
The fair is celebrated every year with great fervor for five days on the Kartik Purnima, in the town of Pushkar, in the Ajmer district of Rajasthan. The celebrations basically take place in between the months of October to November.

India with Gets Holidays

In my recent trip to India I hired Gets Holidays to help me out with hotel bookings, airport transfers and so on... Being myself an elephant lover I reserved with them a tour pack called PHOTOGRAPHIC ELEPHANT SAFARI!
Had such a great time that I want to thanks Gets Holidays for the wonderful and helpful service provided. They are very professional and always ready to help. Special thanks for Sandra who really helped me out giving me all the support and information needed. Loved it and will definitely be back with Gets Hollidays!

Great experience and fantastic service

We have traveled across the globe and used several companies but never had such an amazing experience. From the planning stage to the the final trip everything was flawless and well executed. The suggestions made during the planning trip made that difference which added to our "wow" experience. We would surely recommend this company and would be back for our Nepal trip very soon.

Great Day Trip (in Spite of the Heat)

Review of: Private Luxury Tour:Day trip to Agra with Taj Mahal,Fort and lunch at ITC Mughal After a longish drive by our careful driver, Sunil (who seemed to be following all the traffic rules in spite of the craziness around him), we met our guide, Jugnu, in Agra. Jugnu was warm and funny and friendly. He was great about explaining the history of everything but then stepping back and just letting us wander around. He also took tons of pictures for us. In spite of the 39 or 40-degree weather, we had a marvelous time. We got lucky choosing this tour.

Amazing personalised and professional tour operaters!

I am a very well-versed traveller of the world and have been traveling for 25 years and seen 34 countries. My sister turned 50 this year and her long-time dream has been to do a trip to India. I offered to assist her husband with the trip arrangements as we planned this trip as a surprise for her. From the time I started the research and the planning Apurva and Manish have been absolutely phenomenal to say the least. They custom designed a trip of 14 days which included the Golden Triangle with Jodhpur and Udaipur. The driver's, hotels, tour guides and all excursions and transportation arrangements were awesome. Nothing is too much to ask and they bend over backwards to accommodate any requests ! My sister was in awe of everything and she even had an emotional spiritual experience at sun-rise at the Taj Mahal. This has really been such a memorable trip that she will always remember for the rest of her life ! Well done GeTS Holidays for your wonderful contribution to make this dream come true ! You truly live up to your promises and I wish you many years of making travel dreams happen !

Once in a lifetime trip! Perfect in many ways

My 10-year-old daughter and I had an incredibly memorable time in June on the 5-Day "Golden Triangle" Tour of Delhi, Jaipur (Beautiful and Historic Pink City) and Agra (Taj Mahal). We booked our tours with GeTS Holiday for a private tour and requested an upgrade of all hotels. We had an amazing time and enjoyed the flexibility that a private brings (vs. group tour). We could spend a more or less time in certain attractions and landmarks. The GeTS Holiday team assigned a representative to welcome us in each city. The tour guides were very experienced. Our driver, Mr. V. Sharma was world-class and unbelievable with his skills as we know it is not easy to drive in India. A special thanks to Ms. Ritu from the head office in Delhi for checking on us daily to ensure we were having none other than an excellent trip. I had contact with all of the staff at GeTS Holiday from the initial inquiry, reservation, welcome and farewell and they are highly professional and very responsive.
We enjoyed the rickshaw ride in Old Delhi and took a detour to visit the Gandhi museum. We particularly enjoyed Jaipur, the Pink City. The local music, costume, and warmth of the people were one to remember. We enjoyed every palace visit and also the elephant ride. In Agra, Taj Mahal was absolutely impressive. Also memorable was the scenic drive through the countryside after leaving Delhi and the Tech area.....

Great way to see the Taj Mahal

Would recommend. Hotel pick up and drop off included! Be prepared for a long ride as it's several hours from New Delhi area to the Taj Mahal. Lunch is also included (and was delicious). Both our guide and driver were fantastic! Very personable and knowledgeable with history and culture. I really appreciated learning about everything while seeing it. They are also very sensitive to your needs, so if you want more explanations, they will provide. If you'd prefer to have less, they'll be a bit quieter. It was also super nice for them to take pictures for us (and often times ask people to get out of pictures for better shots). Water was also provided and the car was private and air conditioned.
