Our trip to India was carefully planned and we really had a wonderful time. We found our travel agent on Zicasso and she was enormously helpful in guiding us to our final itinerary. Although the four of us are very seasoned travelers (especially in developing countries), we were somewhat apprehensive about traveling to India. We wanted to see different parts of India and its culture, but did not want the majority of our trip just navigating the challenges of driving on the crowded "roads". Another key objective was to visit the tiger preserves and hopefully, see the elusive tiger. Our travel agent spent much time talking to us, so that she really understood what we (four individuals) wanted to experience and learn. Her recommendations and advice ranged from general areas to visit and transportation alternatives to specific sights and things to do. Once the challenge of the actual itinerary was finalized, she quickly arranged all the logistics of the trip so that in additon to the luxury train for the first week, the rest of the trip included the other sights that we wanted to see.
Our 18 day trip to India was wonderful! Our travel agent's advice and recommendations were excellent and everything was so well organized. Our guides, drivers etc were extremely knowledgeable and friendly (and always on time). We had an amazing trip - luxury train through Rajasthan, Khajuraho, Varanasi and Agra, followed by the incredible Ellora and Ajanta Caves, finishing up at two Taj safari lodges (and an incredible tiger sighting)! We will definitely use the same travel agent again when we go to the countries that she creates trips for.
The magnificent tiger sighting at Bandhavgarh National Park
The spectacular Ellora and Ajanta Caves - we have seen many of the Buddhist caves in China. These caves are different and as wonderfully created and executed.
The unique sculptured walls of the temples at Khajuraho.
The spirit and "holiness" of Varanase
The magnificent Taj Mahal
I could go on about the palaces and forts of Rajasthan ...........
I would not change anything.
