QUOTES ABOUT INDIA

"India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only."
Mark Twain (American author)

"If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most fully developed some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest problems of life, and has found solutions, I should point to India".
Max Mueller (German scholar)

"If there is one place on the face of earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India."
Romain Rolland (French scholar)

"It is impossible not to be astonished by India. Nowhere on Earth does humanity present itself in such a dizzying, creative burst of cultures and religions, races and tongues. Enriched by successive waves of migration and marauders from distant lands, every one of them left an indelible imprint which was absorbed into the Indian way of life. Every aspect of the country presents itself on a massive, exaggerated scale, worthy in comparison only to the superlative mountains that overshadow it. It is this variety which provides a breathtaking ensemble for experiences that is uniquely Indian. Perhaps the only thing more difficult than to be indifferent to India would be to describe or understand India completely. There are perhaps very few nations in the world with the enormous variety that India has to offer. Modern day India represents the largest democracy in the world with a seamless picture of unity in diversity unparalleled."

"Mohd is one of the best guides I've gotten on this site. He was extremely professional and well organized. He was also very knowledgeable and a good guide for anyone who wants to visit the area and learn about it's history. If you're in New Delhi skipping out on Agra and it's historical and cultural sites would be a mistake. I'd definitely recommend hiring Mohd and checking out the area"

"Mohd was our guide for Taj Mahal and Agra Fort with the obligatory stop at a craft shop where we saw a brief demo of how the decorative stone designs of the Taj were made and a look in their showroom. Mohd is quite knowledgeable and a good communicator so we enjoyed learning the details regarding the Taj and the fort. We are not big shoppers but it was interesting seeing what the shop had for sale along with their spirited sales pitch. Overall though, the tour was great and we would recommend Mohd."

Travel Tips while traveling in India

The majority of foreign tourists arrive in India by air. The majority of tourists traveling to India land in New Delhi. English is spoken by almost all government officials present at Indian airports. If you speak the English language, then you should have no communication problems at the airport.

All foreign passport holders arriving in India are required to fill in an 'Arrival Card' for immigration/customs clearance. This must be presented to Immigration officer. Before you leave the immigration counter, when the immigration officer returns your passport to you after examining it. Make sure that the immigration officer has stamped your passport with an arrival stamp. This will help avoid problems later when you are leaving India

I have found that India is one country, where they sometimes x-ray luggage of arriving passengers. If this happens to you, do not be alarmed. Luggage carts are available at the airport free of charge. On some occasions there are no carts available due to the volume of passengers in the terminal. However if you wait for a short time, carts are periodically brought in from outside.

Major credit cards are generally accepted by large establishments, including hotels, shops and airlines. Hotels may refuse to accept credit cards at certain destinations. It is best to pre-check.

ATM'S and cash machines are easily available in big cities in India but not in villages & small towns.

PLEASE NOTE
  • Immediately outside there are taxi stands for pre-paid taxi service. In case you need to exchange currency you need to do it before you exit the airport.
  • Money exchange booths are inside the airport and not outside.
