Our Suggestions
  • Its a desert around so its better not to have the kids around. They may catch the sunburns and the hot air which moves around here.
  • Geographically it is better to move around with a Guide - whether on a individual tour or on a group tour - especially if you are outside the main city of Ahmedabad.
  • Ahmedabad is a city of clothes. Its a good place to purchase clothes from. So there is no need to put extra clothings.
  • The Sea Side locations are different from other sea sides around the country. Rarely you will find NON - VEGETARIAN FOOD in Gujarat. Its best to have Vegetarian Food.
  • Try out the Ethnic Gujarati Food which is sweet in taste. Whichever Gujarati dish you eat, it will taste a bit swee, beacuse of the sugar being added in all Gujarai Food.
  • The Kandla Port and the Sea Beaches are good places to be in. Its best to be here in winters as summers can be scorching.
  • Pre book your hotel room to avoid inconvinence of any sorts. To make things easier for you, we can book on your behalf, if you wish so. Contact us for the same.
