    4.5 - Excellent

    The Taj Mahal was the best part of the trip. We had a great group of people on the tour bus, so that also made the trip fun. The country was very dirty and noisy, but that's not anything your company can change! I felt the guide could have provided more information on the bus (talk about the country, the caste system, education, culture, etc.) Instead he mostly just talked about things relating to the Hindu religion. I found that it was a bit much after awhile as so many places we visited were relating to the Hindu religion and that wasn't why I picked a northern India tour! The guide was helpful to us at the end of the tour and helped us get to a mall to buy a suitcase. The one waste of time during the trip was the length of time spent in the carpet room at a place where we visited. It was very interesting to see the ink stamping on material and how the carpets are made. However, when we went inside, they kept us sitting inside a room and showing us so many kinds of carpets for quite a long time. By the time we got out to the other rooms where the textiles were kept, people were eager to get back to the bus but some wanted to get clothing. I think it would be better to ask people if they would prefer to see the carpet or go directly to the textiles. Perhaps the goal is to try and convince people to buy carpets that wouldn't normally buy them, but I feel it's better servicing the clients to allow them to pick which area in which to spend their time. The hotels were good and served good food. The only complain was with Piccaddilly in Delhi which had extremely slow service and at breakfast they didn't have a lot of food out when we went to eat before leaving. They had signs for pancakes and waffles but didn't have any made and the cooks said they weren't making them (even though all the toppings were sitting on the buffet). Milk wasn't put out until it was almost time for us to go to the bus. The pool there was really nice though and the washroom near the pool was very nice. Overall it was good value for the money paid for the tour.

    Have just returned from this Taj/Holi tour, and need to say how wonderful it was. Sat, our tour leader was fantastic, our bus driver Goldy was excellent, and Manjeet was very helpful. I will definitely return to India. A beautiful place. So pleased I did it. Merinda

    • November 21, 2016

      When is the best time to visit India?

      The best time to visit for warm, dry and sunny weather is between October and March. In November, when the monsoon has ended, is the best time to travel to India's southern states. Increasing temperatures in April and May can result in excellent value trips, but you can expect high humidity and thunderstorms. Between June and September you can travel to Ladakh.

        Very knowledgeable and quick to respond.The prices were good and consistent so once we found the tour we wanted we didn't have to shop the net to see if the price was the best since this was the best price out there. We will definitely recommend TourRadar and will use them again.
