    The south was excellent, our guide Chandra Bose is very knowledgeable about his country, its history, and its traditions. He was extremely caring for each member, we felt safe at all times, he attended to all of us in all ways at every point on the tour. We felt we had a thorough knowledge of the South of India. The local guides were, also, very well informed and shared their knowledge with us The North was a different story with its highs and lows. We felt our guide was mediocre at best. The northern guide seemed bored, reluctantly answered questions, showed no enthusiasm, bordered on being rude, he comes across as aloof and arrogant.. Ignored the needs and necessary caring of the group members, insulting them by calling us CHILDREN! The guides in Bundi and Jaipur were very poor. They were not knowledgeable (the observatory guide said we should buy the book if we wanted to know anything!!) and we actually had to listen to guides from other tour companies to get an explanation. They rushed us through (actualy running in certain areas)! The city walking tours were useless, being rushed through and not able to enjoy the sights.

    Both Charles & Bhupati are excellent guides. But I must add Charles(in the south) went that extra mile taking us to places during the \'free time\' & the great home cooked meals (including his mum\'s).

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • Is there an additional cost for travelling solo?

    This price is based on a twin shared accommodation whereby you will be roomed with someone of the same sex. You can choose to upgrade to a single room for an additional cost. Please contact us to arrange this.

  • Is there a required type of luggage for this tour?

    What you need to bring will vary according to the trip style you have chosen, the countries you are visiting and when you are travelling.

    Generally speaking you should pack as lightly as possible. On the vast majority of the trips you are expected to carry your own luggage, although you won't be required to walk long distances with it (max 30 minutes).

    Most travellers carry their luggage in a backpack, although an overnight bag with a shoulder strap would suffice if you travel lightly. Smaller bags or backpacks with wheels are convenient although it is recommended that your bag has carry straps. You'll also need a day pack/bag to carry water and a camera etc. for day trips.

  • Lynette12th April 2018
    I haven't travelled yet but from what I've seen so far I'm extremely happy I have chosen to travel with TourRadar. From my very first enquiry I was impressed. I had been researching a number of companies to find the right tour for us but all the others took their time in replying and I had to ask a number of times for information. The team at TourRadar were always prompt with answering me and very forthcoming with information. The website was easy to use and I was very impressed that it had so much information. What information I couldn't find on the website was quickly given to me once I asked. Would I refer TourRadar to my friends.....I already have! Now I can't wait to travel
