“Fast, Within the Budget and Hassle Free…!”
At the outset let me say that it has been a marvellous experience with Indian Experience. It was a lovely experience visiting Gujrat’s different places which provided an insight into the nomadic culture of the people living in tribal areas and exploring archaeological and scenic places such as Gondal, Bhuga houses of Kutch, Little Rann of Kutch and Palitana. The untouched beauty of Gir forest and the flora and fauna of this forest gave me never ending memories.  The experience was amazing we really had an amazing trip with super arrangments, I would also like to give special thanks to Mr Narendra for a memorable trip.
