We started working with this travel company on an itinerary for a trip to India in February 2018. Many conversations about our interests, types of tours, food, hotels followed. After we had finalized an itinerary it was thrown for a loop when a deal on air tickets allowed us to stay an extra five days - back to the drawing board. We finally ended with a 33 day trip which surpassed all our expectations. The travel company had chosen excellent hotels and all our guides were excellent, save one. This travel company has partnered with a local agency in India who met us at every transfer location, airports, and so on. The trip was meticulously organized and effected, despite a lost suitcase, and two cancelled internal flights (both rebooked and sorted). A detailed itinerary was prepared for us and we were provided with local Indian phones to use. A valuable touch. The trip went off like clockwork and was thrilling - we could not have organized this on our own. This travel company is superb.
The many wonderful people we met who were interested and concerned that we were having a good time. Some of the hotels were among the best I have ever stayed at. The food was overall delicious.
Driving or rather being driven, is a wild experience and certainly memorable!
The scenery was always fascinating and the multitude of occupations of locals was always fascinating to see.
I had not been aware of the advanced levels of sculpting and temple and fort building that preceded European developments in these areas - there's a vast history and evidence of artistic accomplishment to be witnessed.
I would like to take this trip after the monsoons have turned the country green - it was in dire need of rain when we visited in February.
I would omit Delhi and Mumbai on a second trip. I would spend two days in Khajuraho and a full day in Occra. I would add a hill station stay in the north.
I would like to take another train journey on a small gauge up to the hills of n. India.
I would add Sri Lanka.
