My foremost concern was the feasibility - especially safety - of traveling to India as a solo woman. The travel agent, an American woman who travels frequently to India on her own, assured me that I would travel just as she does, and she followed through on every promise. The travel company in India coordinated everything to perfection - between the drivers, the guides, and the transfer agents who met me and saw me off at every hotel/airport/train station, someone was always ready to get me where i wanted to be. The itinerary was great, with experiences tailored to my specific interests (i.e. meetings with a classical musician and a contemporary artist/gallery owner) that allowed me to get beyond the standard tourist sites. When i asked to see a Bollywood movie at the Raj Mandir cinema in Jaipur, they arranged to have the local guide take me, which ended up being a really fun girls' night out.
Driving through rural Rajasthan conversations with people i met provided a view onto real life. In the same vein, Shapura Bagh, a stop near a small town that offered a glimpse into village life was a surprise favorite.
I'm not a big shopper, and I should have been more rigorous in editing out activities billed as art demonstrations (that is, opportunities to buy local crafts).
