VERY well planned tour.... awesome facility.....accommodation and food service is good.....you guys are doing good job..... I enjoyed lot.....thank you EziiTours.....

EziiTours बरोबर मी गिरनार वारी केली होती...कधीही न विसरता येईल असा सुंदर अनुभव ह्या वारी मधे आला... मी व्यक्तीश: चेतन चे आभार मानतो की त्याने ह्या ठिकाणाचे दर्शन उत्तम रितीने घडवुन आणले.. चेतनच्या पुढील सहलिंना शुभेच्छा..

सौराष्ट्रात काठेवाड प्रांतात जुनागड संस्थानात गिरनार पर्वत स्थित आहे..साधू संतांच्या वास्तव्याने पुनीत झालेल्या या पर्वतावर दत्तगुरूंचा नित्य निवास असतो.दत्तगुरूंच्या कृपाशिर्वादाची अनुभूति घेण्यासाठी गिरनारला इजी टूरसोबत जरूर भेट द्या. जय गिरनारी पार लगा दो नैय्या हमारी

सर्वात प्रथम तुमचे मनापासून आभार की तुमच्यासोबत मला द्वारका-सोमनाथ-गिरनार ही ट्रिप करायला मिळाली. खुप दिवसांपासून गिरनार दर्शन करायचं मनात होतं ते तुमच्यामुळे शक्य झाले. बाकी तुमच्या सर्व्हिसबद्दल सांगायचे तर खूप उत्तम दर्जाची सर्व्हिस मिळाली. एक धार्मिक ट्रिप असून सुद्धा कुठल्याही प्रकारची कमतरता नव्हती. पुण्यापासूनचा एकूण प्रवास, जेवण, हॉटेल या सर्वांची खुप उत्तम सोय तुम्ही केली, कमी पैसे घेऊनसुद्धा यांच्या दर्जात कुठल्याही प्रकारची तडजोड केली नाही. ...

EziiTours provided us with an excellent set of facilities at affordable rates. One can say " A guaranteed dream journey with a divine eperience." Superb!!!
