Karen "It was a great introduction to India. I think the trip would be better if run in reverse order and the option to have an upgrade, if desired, on the sleeper trains would have been a definite plus. The diversity of sights was just about perfect. The Ganges and the Taj were the highlights of my trip. Some of our little "on your own" side excursions were amazing. It is a trip I would recommend..."

    Amazing tour! Intense, but I experienced so much and the group was great! Our guide was lovely, so friendly and informative. All the trains were on time, something which was a great surprise. Many of the hotels had no hot water which could be a problem.

    • Are any vaccines required?

      We recommend you contact a medical professional for the most up to date and accurate information. TourRadar cannot legally give medical advice and we want you to be well prepared for your trip of a lifetime!

    • Are flights included?

      As we have travellers from all over the world, flights before and after the tour are not included in the tour price and you need to arrange these separately by yourself once your tour is guaranteed. As we specialise in organising the best tours around the world for you, we are unable to advise on flight prices or book flights on your behalf. We recommend that you do not book your flights until your place on the tour has been confirmed. Check out the following link which is powered by Skyscanner to book your flight - https://flights.tourradar.com

    • Is a single supplement available?

      The single supplement is not mandatory for this tour, as travellers can be roomed with a fellow traveller of the same sex for no additional cost. This is a great way to get to know your group and enrich your travel experience! If you would prefer a little more privacy, a single supplement can be paid (subject to availability) which will guarantee you your own room for the duration of the tour.
