What our GG Sisters have to say about our tour..

“Just amazing. LOVED my first international tour with #girlsgetaways …” - Amanda

“I would like to think this tour cemented friendships, opened eyes, embraced colour, made one feel fortunate and privileged in more ways than one. Great tour Girls Getaways ... I can not highlight enough the fantastic guides and driver and experiences we had. I would recommend to anyone that can hack the pace and assault on senses that India embraces you with. Well done Girls Getaways”- Kimberley

“The highlight for me was going to Khempur and seeing the simple village life.  The people at The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel were so gracious and so welcoming.  Loved it and then after at Udaipur being so different again. Felt very at ease there.  Maybe it was the water... Vikas was an amazing tour guide and so tolerant of us crazy Aussie women.  Could easily go again…” - Mandy
