“India during Diwali”
Great trip - saw many aspects of Indian culture. Especially interesting at this time of the festive season. Be prepared for very very busy travel on the roads - trucks, buses, cows, camels, rickshaws, motor bikes etc etc. all going in various directions!!! Many women are dressed in their beautiful sarees for this period. The trip was excellent. The tour director did a well managed itinerary and was especially knowledgeable on the history and relevance of each attraction. We saw the Taj Mahal, Red ...read more Fort, Amber Fort to name a few. Of particular interest to us were the safaris at Ranthambore National Park and it did not disappoint. We saw a tigress with her two cubs eating the kill from the previous night and then a tiger at close quarters on the afternoon safari. The hotels were all of the best standard available in each area and we were very pleased with the accommodation and service that we received. The itinerary is full on and is jam packed to ensure that you get as much sightseeing that anyone could wish for. And not to mention the rickshaw ride around the streets of Delhi!!! Make sure that you take your heart pills before you go - but it is something not to be missed. Overall we had a tremendous time and would recommend this trip if you're thinking of travelling to the Golden Triangle.
“Quick visit to Varanasi ”
3 day G Adventures' tour to Varanasi was very well organised. Amit, the tour guide for 3 days, was wonderful and so helpful to me. I had an excellent spot to watch the evening Hindu ceremony on the Ganges. Due to high river levels unfortunately the boats were not going on the river that evening or the next morning. Very disappointing. The Hotel Meadows was of poor standard, rooms dirty, noisy, poor quality linens etc. the food in the dining room was very basic and I had to leave the hotel for ...read more my meals and seek out better restaurants. The Surya Hotel was very close and much better hotel and I ate my meals there mostly. I did not get the rickshaw ride which I see now was meant to be included. Driver was excellent and friendly. Amit the tour guide made my trip with his friendliness and helpfulness. He also arranged extra transport for me and took me to a great archaeological museum which was brilliant.
“The trip was an enormous success.”
The trip was an enormous success on every level and was hugely enjoyable, the memories of which will always stay with me. I loved every second of the journey, and Explore were very efficient in organising a replacement flight home for me after the problems with Jet airways, including booking me into a lounge at Doha airport for an 8 hour layover. Many thanks for that courtesy. (Review provided by Explore Worldwide.)
“Great trip through Northern India”
We experienced a great trip through Northern India, with so many highlights it is too hard to mention any one as a standout. The Taj Mahal was a wonderful sight at sunrise followed by the Agra Fort. The forts were amazing and the Palaces were an insight as to how the rich lived years ago. The Ancient Agrasen Ki Baoli as well was a real surprise along with the jeep ride to the desert tribe. We loved Udaipur, it was our favourite city with all the lakes.
