The First experience of Group Tours Packages in India
It was my first visit to Shimla. The level of excitement was at its peak because it was also my first time experience of group travel packages in India. After going through a number of articles, talking about the benefits of India group tour packages (and also watching few movies where one meets his love of the life on such trips) I called up my operator and asked him to get my tickets done. I could sense the amazement in his voice because I am known for being a very asocial person.
We were grouped, based on our preferences for the respective destinations. I found that my love for hills and snow was common in my group. After a warm reception on Delhi airport by our tour planners, we were taken off to Shimla on a deluxe coach. It was morning when we reached to Shimla. The entire view was enveloped with heavy fog of January. I could not believe my eyes on seeing the snow all around me. We had indeed chosen the best time to visit the place.
They had planned a nice place to stay for us. After a yummy breakfast, we left the hotel for local sightseeing in Shimla. After a half day sightseeing we returned to our hotel where a bonfire was arranged for us. We sang, danced around the fire and talked till late in the night. It was a lovely feeling to know such nice people and to bond with them. The dinner was served and we gorged ourselves on the food. The chit-chat did not end even on the dinner table. Tired of the whole day travelling we went to our respective rooms and landed straight to our beds. Next morning we proceeded for our visit to Fagoo valley, Green valley, White flower hall, Bhimakali Temple, Kufri, Indira tourist point and Mini zoo. Evening was more fun especially for the girls as we were taken to Mall road for local street shopping. We shopped for our souvenirs and were expecting a simple dinner. To our utter surprise, dinner was waiting for us along with the wild beats of DJ ‘s music notes. And we danced again!
It was the last night of our trip so we bonded more. Nostalgia was overtaking us, fear of going away from each other, not knowing when would we meet again. We danced, and danced and danced until we were tired enough to just go and sleep. We were driven back to Delhi the next morning and then sent back to our respective homes.
It has been 2 years now. I feel that I have evolved as a person after taking that trip. There is no more hesitation or shying away from people now. I can now walk up to people with full confidence. Indeed, Holiday Group Tours in India was a big lesson for people like me.
