We had always heard about Bangarh, but could never find the time to visit. Thrillophilia's planning was great and the car very comfortable. I loved the experience, and it was very pocket friendly as well

Staying at this palace-cum-resort is definitely an unforgettable experience and my family loved every bit of it. From the grand rooms, the beautiful gardens, home style food, and the hospitality of the caretakers, there's nothing I would change about this place.
For this kind of amazing price, this is the best experience you can possibly get. Placed on a hill, this fort stay is quite unique and has beautiful lush green surroundings that just add to the beauty. There is a wonderful pool right on the terrace, and having visited in the summer season, it was a great time to spend some time in the pool! The food here is also quite authentic and we are definitely going to come back here sometime soon!

We were a bunch of 4 crazy daredevils and wanted to explore the mystery of Bhangarh. It was an exciting weekend for us. The cars were very well maintained, but pick up was very delayed. Besides that, the price was amazing for such an experience. The guide Rishabh told us a lot about the history and stories about the place to scare us, but we went ahead anyway. On the way, we also visited a few temples. Wish we could’ve spent the night there. Thanks, overall good experience.

Who won't want to be treated like royalty. Well, that's what it was like! The entire stay was awesome. The palace was beautiful. The rooms were well kept. The staff made sure your needs were being taken care of. I went with my family and it was one hell of a trip. We enjoyed every second of it. The food was delicious and well served. The scenery around was splendid. All this at such reasonable price. If you're seeking similar experience, you should definitely go for this one!

We were a group of 5 college friends, travelling with Thrillophilia for the first time. Overall, the entire experience was memorable, thanks to the energetic trek leader. We also had a local guide who enlightened us with countless stories about Sariska and neighbouring places. The pick-up was luckily on time. The leader engaged everyone in indoor and outdoor games and exploration, but our favourite part about camping was the nighttime bonfire amidst the dense forest that was our home for the night!

I found this place so interesting. I am always excited about visiting story-driven places like this. I should admit that this was a fantastic package. We have covered a lot of temples. I was amused by the construction of every temple. Professional behaviour from the support team as well. I recommend this tour for every person of any age. Thanks.
