Gujarat Tour - 9 days

We are 10 persons (6 adults + 4 children above 10 years age) have planned a 8N/9D trip in Gujarat on New Year. We arrive Ahmedabad early morning by flight on a Saturday and leave Ahmedabad late evening next Sunday.

Trip is Ahmedabad-Dwarka-Gir-Diu-Veraval-Ahmedabad.

We will stay 2 nights each in Dwarka, Gir and Diu where we have already booked hotels.

We want to do local sight seeing in Ahmedabad (have 2 full days there), Dwarka, Sasan Gir and Diu.

We need advice on:

a. whether we should book a tempo traveller from Ahmedabad for the entire tour. The cost quoted is around Rs. 65k. Is that reasonable?

b. Should we go by overnight bus to Dwarka, return to Ahmedabad from Veraval by overnight train and book taxi/vehicle locally at each place separately.

c. if we were to chose option b above, how much taxi/tempo traveller for 10 persons may cost in each place for: 1) local sight seeing 2) Dwarka to Gir 3) Gir to Diu

all suggestions are welcome.

Hi yatrisum,

It will be a good idea to book vehicle for local sight seeing at each place. That will not only be cheaper but booking a local vehicle will also result in visiting some off beat places which are known only to locals. Tata winger or tempo traveller will cost you around 5 to 6k per day. Have a nice trip.

Dear yatrisum,

Since you are 10 people, private vehicle will be definitely cheaper than bus journey. Ahmedabad-Dwarka-Gir-Diu-Veraval-Ahmedabad trip will cover around 1500 KMs. Since you are traveling 9D, taxi operator will charge minimum 300 KMs per day.

You can confirm per km rate at Gujarat Tourism call center no:- 1800 233 7951 (Toll Free).
