The entire trip was a fusion of sights, sounds, tastes, and experiences although nothing can quite beat seeing the Taj Mahal for the first time at sunset, being lucky enough to spot two tigers during our safari experience and swimming in the Ganges.
Debbie Westram, December 2009
This trip was so varied and interesting that it is very hard to pinpoint particular highlights. Interestingly, when Narendra, our excellent guide, asked members of our group for their favourite moment every person gave a different answer, which shows what a wealth of experiences were included. Personally I will never forget the moment in the Corbett national Park when a considerable number of adult and baby elephants emerged unexpectly from the bushes and ambled straight down the path towards our jeep; it was absolutely awe-inspiring.
[Least enjoyed] The amount of travelling between venues. Lengthy bus journeys (7 hours or more) between cities was just too much (and a waste of valuable time) - surely train would have been an option. Our overnight train journey, the worst feature of our holiday and one experience that I never wish to repeat, was followed immediately by a long car journey. For those of us unfortunate enough to sit in the very back it was extremely uncomfortable(no leg room, very bumpy), and resulted in several members of the group being ill.
Apart from the amount of travelling time involved (particularly in the first few days of the trip) the itinary was generally well thought out, however most members of our group agreed that there were too many palace visits during our time in the cities. Personally I would have liked a little more free time to relax, also we were disappointed that there were very few shopping opportunities. Having said that the mix of culture, mountains, animals and religious centres was a good combination. It was not actually necessary to go to Rishikesh, it would have been better to stay in Haridwar.
Our first night in The Southgate Hotel was not particularly pleasant (the room was very stuffy and smelt very strongly of varnish), however when we returned there at the end of the holiday we were in a much better room. The second hotel (Jaipur) was stunning - thank you. Agra was lovely but we had no time to enjoy the hotel due to having spent so long on the road getting there.
Narendra was first class.

Safari and visiting the school
Narendra always went the extra mile to make sure we got the most out of our trip

Great hotel in Jaipur in former Palace - just like the Marigold Hotel but restored! Especially eating outside on the the roof-top restaurant.
Seeing a tiger on safari at Corbett National Park was very special.
[Least enjoyed] The long trip from Agra to the Himalayan Foothills.
Overall very well balanced, and expertly managed by our guide. Could have done with a bit more 'down-time' on occasions.
You had chosen some very distinctive properties for our stays. They were varied in style, but all locally run. Great.
Outstanding leader, who really made the holiday in many ways.

Having an elephant ride, visitng the Taj Mahal.
The itinerary needs updating as there were a few discrepencies regarding not only optional extras but the fact it was too dangerous to camp at Rishikesh wasn't mentioned in the itinerary. The car journey over the himalayan hills should be highlighted as not for the faint hearted...
Our leader Avdhesh Avasthi was incredible! He was extremely polite, enthusiastic about his subjects, knowledgeable (we threw lots of question at him and he always knew the answer). He also cared about our safety and well being, whilst managing such a small group well. He really helped make this trip memorable.

The whole trip to India was a highlight although the best was sitting at a festival on the Ganges in the evening something you see on TV but never think you will be there in person!Our guide Adesh (may have mispelt his name!) was wonderful and in my opinion went the extra mile to look after us and ensure we enjoyed the holiday to the max.
As I have aready said he was excellent. Knowledgeable and friendly. Looked after us if we were not feeling too well ie jet lag

Loved the trip my first solo experience thought the taj mahol wouldbe the star but actually there were so many great highlights one comment would be to reverse the itenary
Mrs M - travelled in November 2011
Before I went I thought seeing the Taj Mahal would be the highlight but actually the quality of the trip/sights meant that it was just one of the many hightlights.
Avdhesh is a great tour leader; friendly, knowlegable and organised. His knowledge of wildlife/birds and ability to spot them greatly enhanced the trip. His cooking lesson was also brilliant.

Difficult to choose between the sight of the Taj Mahal and the two tigers we saw.
Always good to have a local guide and he was a real character as well as being extremely knowledgeable
