My wife and I are seasoned travelers. We seldom hire any travel agency for our numerous trips, but with this our second trip to India we thought we better had one to help us arrange domestic transportation, accommodation as well as development of a viable itinerary so as to avoid the much expected uncertainty and surprises. With the help of our travel team our trip turned out to be seamless. Everywhere we went we had the feeling that a whole team consisting of our Travel Specialist, the Team Leader in New Delhi, the Transfer Representative at each location as well as the drivers were there all the time monitoring us to make sure that all our needs were met to our satisfaction. When such bumps as flight and train delays occurred, they went out of their way to constantly check the schedules for us and make arrangements to fill up the time by taking us to visit sights which were not included in our itinerary or taking us to luxury hotels to relax while waiting. Thanks to the superb services of the travel company team we had a wonderful time in India.
We went to two extremes: First, we experienced the energy of spirituality in Sarnath and Varanasi, and then the secular Power and Glory of the rest of our trip - Khajuraho, Orchha, Jaipur, Jodepur and Udaipur - as embodied in their gorgeous palaces and forts. In Mumbai, our last stop, we went to the extremes of having afternoon tea at the Chrystal Room of Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, and then taking a 2-hour walking tour of the Dharavi Slum, made famous by the Oscar-winning movie, Slum Dog Millionaire. On the way to the Slum Tour we stopped to take a picture of the most expensive single-family house ($2 billions USD cost of construction, 5 residents and 600 employees). It was an experience, both memorable and enjoyable.
It had been suggested to us that we should at least stay one night in one of the three hotels (former palaces) when in Rajasthan. We stayed in the one in Udaipur for 3 nights, and found we had overdone it. It was indeed very beautiful, but we could have cut our stay to 1 or 2 nights.
