  • Essential North India reviewer 1
    Written on March 27, 2017
    4.5 - Excellent

    Had an incredible time on the North India Explorer tour. The route was perfect for a quick tour— the additions of Varanasi and Bundi to the typical Golden Triangle route were the best parts, as well as a rural village visit facilitated by our guide. The guide was extremely approachable and accommodating the whole time, and included activities beyond just what was on the itinerary, including a Bollywood theatre visit and a home-cooked lunch. Food expenses etc. were more than expected, but still affordable.

Questions & Answers

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

    • Is there any age restriction on this tour?

      Geckos tours are exclusively for travellers 18-29 years old and are a great way to meet other young, like-minded people.

    • Group size for this trip?

      The minimum group size for this tour is 1 person! The maximum is still nice and small though, with an upper group size limit of 16 people.

      June is the monsoon season in this area, which brings with it high humidity and temperatures (sometimes in excess of 40 degrees celsius).

      Your website was very simple to use. I was able to find exactly what I wanted and when I wanted my tour. The price was also a big factor in choosing your company. As I have done a Cosmos tour before, I knew it would be good value for the price.
