    4.0 - Good

    I'll make this short. A boat accommodating 24 people is a great size. (We had 23 passengers). G Advertures provided a facinating insight into life/culture from Farakka to Kolkata and the tour guide and boat crew delivered beyond what was expected. The food served on board was of the highest quality and the chef excelled himself. We were on the 9 day program which implied 9 days on the boat. That's deceptive because day one starts at 6.00pm with an outline of what to expect, day two is travelling to the boat. (we got there around 11pm from memory due to delays with the train, and day 9 is really concerned with disembarkment. Nonetheless- six and a half days on the boat was ample. I would have rated this trip 5/5 if only the guide's English was up to the rest of the standard provided. Unfortunately I and others I spoke to from our cruise found it difficult to understand the guide most of the time.
