Rather Poor

    2.0 - Rather poor

    Unquestionably this is a horror trip! The hotels after Kolkata are an appalling standard. Filthy linen and one tour member bitten all over by bed bugs in Gangtok. Hotels distant from attractions. Large amounts of time left to one's own devices when 'trapped' far from the centre of activity. I got to the stage where I'd had enough and left the tour. I wasn't expecting Western standards and have travelled extensively (approaching 100 countries) and am a Kiwi and 99% of the time just grit my teeth and get on with it...but this tour is totally s**t. Everyone else in the tour is complaining vociferously and the poor guide is on his maiden tour and it's not his fault. In a competitive industry, G Adventures have plumbed new depths and set an all-time low that will be hard to beat.
    G Adventures commented on this review
    Oh no! That is not the way we drew it up at all. Thanks for taking the time to let us know. As a Kiwi myself, I can understand the degree to which we are usually easy going people (#ChurToThat), but what you have described here is unacceptable to anyone, ourselves included. Please reach out to us at and we will look into this.

    4.5 - Excellent

    It was a fantastic tour. Good hotels, train journeys were comfortable, Itinerary was very well laid out. Our C E O was a " wealth of knowledge " and always gone that extra mile to ensure our entire journey pleasant and comfortable. I will certainly book my future holiday through tour radar.
