. Thousands of people visit the ghats of the Ganga at Har ki Pauri at Haridwar to witness the aarti started several decades ago by Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya. The tradition continues unabated. The aarti is the sight to behold; You will be on the other side of the banks and could see the priests light up the lamps. Slowly, they started moving the lamps in the clockwise direction, in a rhythmic way. The reflection of lamps was visible on the Ganges. It seemed the river was acknowledging the prayers offered to her by taking away all the flowers and ghee lamps offered to her on small donas. The mighty Ganga had a strong current which was indicative of its purpose in life—loving unconditionally all those who come to its banks. The river never uses its own water yet it flows for the benefit of others who quench their spiritual thirst at its banks.

My guide (Rajpal Rana) picked me up sharp at 6 am, we communicated the day before via Whatsapp. I fell asleep in the car and at about 8:30 am we stopped at a nice restaurant for breakfast. Around 11:00 am we reached Rishikesh. Rana showed me the main temples and the ashrams on the banks of the Ganges. We walked across Ram Jhula and Lakshman Jhula. Rana showed me a nice crystal shop that was run by the local ashram. We then went to Haridwar, and saw the banks of the Ganges, and walked through the area. The ganga arti in Hardiwar begins around 7 pm. I had to cut the tour a bit short, as I had to be back in Delhi by early evening, so we didn't stay for the evening Aarti. I reached my hotel by about 8:30 pm. But Rana was very accommodating. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a way to see both Haridwar and Rishikesh in the same day.

This is an excellent tour. Our driver/guide was Raj Pal and found him to be fantastic! On time for our pick up and his driving was flawless which is not easy if you are familiar with India. He was a wealth of information on the area and what we were seeing and doing and we felt at all times safe and comfortable. The road itself from Delhi to Rishikesh/Hardiwar is not the best but it is definitely worth the trip. My only recommendation is to make sure to take a handful of small bills for Temple entrance fees, washroom fees, etc. And be prepared for a long day. There is some walking required - but it is not difficult. Again - a very good day trip.

Not worth the effort. Rotten 16 hour journey to see the Ganges. Most other items on the tour were skipped. He pointed one out as we drove by at 50KPH. Inadequate restroom breaks. On the return wife had to wait 8 hours and he stopped for me to pee in the weeds. Very boring journey and woefully inadequate guide. Do not waste your time and money on this one.

Booked this tour for my mom and she absolutely loved it! As soon as I booked the tour, the tour company followed up with me to give me the details of the day. The tour guide, who was also the driver, was amazing and knowledgable.

Wow what a day. Rishikesh was 'mystical' and Haridwar 'spiritual', but a dip in Maa Ganga the highlight. Both locations well worth the loooong day
