Newly Added Aurangabad Experience
I went to Aurangabad with my family and we had a great time there. We explored different sites like Ajanta caves, flea markets, Ellora caves, Bibi ka Maqbara and Daulatabad fortress, and many more places. The accommodation and other facilities provided in trip were really very nice. The hotel room was comfortable, the food was also good, and the driver was also very nice and helpful. Thanks for the great trip experience.
It was the best tour that we had. It was one of the memorable tour. Stays that were provided were awesome. Location, service, and staff was so helping. Our guide/driver was so helping in nature
