The airport in Amritsar is the Sri Guru Ram Das Jee International Airport that is 11km away from the main city and is frequented by domestic as well as international flights. One can also visit Amritsar via trains as the Amritsar Railway Station is connected to almost all major cities in the country including Kolkata, Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi.

A visit to the city of Amritsar is incomplete without a visit to the famous Golden Temple. This temple is also known as Harmandir Sahib. It was founded by the 4th Sikh Guru in 1604. Sikhs from all over the world visit the temple, as it is considered the ultimate pilgrimage destination for the community. Apart from this, the Jallianwala Bagh shrine is also a popular tourist attraction. One can also visit the Akal Takht.

The famous Wagah Border ceremony can also be witnessed when you are in Amritsar, as the border between India and Pakistan runs through the area. For animal lovers, the Harike Wetland Sanctuary is an exciting place to visit, while the Amritsar Heritage Walk will give you incredible insight into the colourful history of the city.

One of the most attractive features of the city is its food, with local stalls selling delicacies that are on par with any good restaurant in the country. The best time to visit Amritsar is between November and March when you can avoid the scorching summers and the wet monsoons.

Got the chance to meet some really friendly people on this trip and we had a nice time going all around Old Delhi with our friends. Cycling tour started early morning and we cycled to ghats of Yamuna river. We also indulge in boat ride and seen a church. At the end of the trip we had nice breakfast. It was very well organised tour. Our guide was very good and had awesome knowledge of the city.

I must say that it was an amazingly superb experience.. the Segway ride was too good and the guide was very polite and nice to us.. we thoroughly enjoyed each and every second of our ride.. I want to honestly thank Thrillophilia for being such a good platform for finding these adventures and rides!! Hats off to Thrillophilia.
Gurgaon has a lot of party hubs but this one stands out. With unlimited food, drinks, music, and dance, Smaash Cyberhub created a special place in my heart. Every New Year's party I spend somewhere near Gurgaon or Delhi. And this time also, I didn't find a better option than this. I took my friends to this place. Reasonable price for what they provided us. Great group of people having so much fun. Staff seemed very professional and lovely. Service was impeccable. I completely enjoyed it and recommending this place to those who love parties.
It was great days we loved it we got good service and good driver

I have visited Delhi for some business work along with my 3 colleagues from Mumbai and we decided to see the famous golden triangle. Team Thrillophilia helped me a lot in planning the package and customising it as per our needs. We have seen the most famous historical attraction of India: Taj Mahal, Red Fort. Amber Fort and Hawa Mahal. The food at Jaipur was awesome and did lot of shopping for my family in Delhi.

I didn't expect that the walking session would be so fun-filled. Also, I had some doubts about the booking process but the thrillophilia support team was very quick to get in touch and helped me with my booking. Great experience!
Booked the pub crawl with Thrillophilia and it was an amazing experience. The guide was friendly.
It was an ideal experience and I could reluctantly explore Delhi at the cheapest price. Happy with service!
The driver picked us on time and was friendly. We visited each famous site in Delhi. Thanks to Thrillophilia for planning such a great outing!
