    Think you need to rethink some of the train journeys and also ditch the hotel in Varanasi. It perhaps gave the end of the holiday and bit of a dip rather than finishing on a high. Apart from that the tour, group and guide were great and i'm sure we'll... Show more

    The first part of the tour is quite busy with lots of travel and little time to relax. The pace slows down during the second week.

    What a brilliant trip, my first to India. Even though we were on an organised tour it did feel like we saw the 'real' India. It will take me some time to process everything I saw and heard on the trip, and I mean that in a good life affirming way not in... Show more
