I had an amazing experience traveling with urban arch group. We could explore historical places at ease. Accommodation facility was excellent. Regarding food, we managed to have food at best possible places. Architect Shaunak provided many intricate details of monuments wherever needed. Beautiful places, awesome delicacies and lovely co travellers, I had during this trip.I booked trip at the last moment but they accommodated me without any extra charges. Shaunak made sure that non architect travellers are not left out and in few hours we could gel in the group. In short, I had memorable trip. He took our suggestions into consideration when it came to food and exploring any other new place. Would definitely like to travel once again.
Thank you Urban arch foundation.

This is not like a typical group tour but a journey where eventually members become like friends n family.
Very well managed by Shaunak who is the founder and a passionate architect, 3 days just passed away with exploration and fun...we garnered many insights into unknown facts. Having local cuisine was the star attraction.Kudos guys, you are doing a great job!!!!!🤟🤟Looking forward to more such trips with y'all 🙂🙂🙂
