    4.5 - Excellent

    Good value for money tour. Several changes to hotels listed in itinerary and the Dehli ones weren’t the best. Guide and driver in India exceptional. Small tour bus of very high standard, Driver always on time at pickup locations and very safe driving. Bottled water on bus give several times daily. Guide was amazing his knowledge and passion second to none. Slight confusion in relation to local payment and when it was due to be paid and in what currency - but quickly resolved with Email to Travel Talk - super speed resolution and response. Nepal was fantastic. Kathmandu hotel which was a change from advertised was excellent and in great location. Enjoyed the trek and the tea houses enroute exceeded our expectations. Had great fun with the porters enroute. Enjoyed Chitwan National Park though the journey from Pokhara was long and extremely bumpy - it was a great experience and the driver was very safety conscious. Be prepared for long days travelling and unavoidable delays, go with an open mind and enjoy the experience it can take hours to cover short distances. Be realistic in your expectations of the developing world and you’ll have an amazing time. Overall great value for money. Be aware of the high entrance fees for foreign tourists in both India and Nepal approximately $7 to $15 for some sights which aren’t included in the price.

    2.0 - Rather poor

    DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY! Tour not what described. Travel Talk seems to put its wallet before its customers. India - India tour guide had little to no knowledge. We might as well have hired a driver and grabbed a tour book because he added no value. He hit on me a number of times, asking me inappropriate questions and showing me an inappropriate photo. When I did not accept his advances, ignored me and was rude to me. Two of us got food poisoning from one of our hotels and were sick for the duration of the trip. No acknowledgement, support or compensation was offered by either the hotel or Travel Talk. Our hotel in Delhi was in an area where none of us felt safe and there were very limited options for tourists. Overall accommodation in India was poor. They then fly you to Nepal and you basically spend a day travelling over and wasting your time. Don't waste your time here - Nepal is safe and relatively easy to navigate. You're better off booking it and arranging it yourself. In Nepal, tour guide was excellent, the accommodation was good for the most part, but tour was a major let down. Despite the stated itinerary drive times of c.4-6 hours, three of the 7 days were spent in a car for 8-9 hours. Spending nearly 3 whole days, basically half the tour, in the car is unacceptable. This also caused unnecessary discomfort and distress to us as the roads were terrible and there are limited facilities (e.g. toilets) available along the way. If you go, spend more time in Pokhara! We had one evening which was not enough. Travel Talk has been advised that an extra day in Pokhara is needed but continue to ignore the advice. The trekking was good, but not long enough. We only spent c. 3 hours on Day 2 actually hiking and 1.5 hours in the morning on Day 3. This is a real waste as you can achieve a lot more in that time. Additionally, we were not told that a blanket or sleeping bag was required as there are insufficient supplies (they give you a very thin blanket) at the lodges. It was extremely cold and we struggled to get, and stay warm. Also in our second lodge, there were no showers as they were doing repairs. I would have been fine without a shower, but given that we paid for this, some form of compensation should have been provided.

    We were just wondering if there was any way a day at the Ganges River could be added?

    This is a set-itinerary group tour and as such we are unable to make any changes to the itinerary.
