This was our Chardham Yatra second tour (first one was to Manali). Both tours have been excellent. Safar Holidays tour leaders are not only experts in their academic fields but are also masters at making the tours work smoothly and efficiently. The itineraries are excellent, both in terms of venues and in terms of the pace of the tour.
