Overall, our travel company did a great job helping us plan our first adventure to India. We gave them an idea of all the places we wanted to visit based on our research and they helped us put it together seamlessly. They were very responsive in planning, provided us thorough pre-trip instructions and booked us in great hotels. All the guides in each city and our drivers were exceptional and our main contact was available for anything we needed while on our trip. They were also incredibly flexible in accommodating a change in plans when one of travelers fell ill and we need to change our itinerary. The only thing we would caution travelers planning trips to India is that it's hard to find straightforward honest advice about what to see and what to skip. Culturally, Indians want to please and they will always positively recommend places and sites as they don't know each traveller's preferences. We recommend reading blogs and researching online for some of this harder to find advice about what to skip and where to spend your time as you may not get the tough answer from your agency, but this company is a great choice for a flawless trip and exceptional service.
We absolutely loved many things about our trip, but our time spent in the country-side at Chhatra Sagar was probably most memorable. Spending time in remote areas is a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of many India cities and sites. The owners at Chhatra Sagar are incredibly knowledgeable, the accommodations are delightfully luxurious and the entire area and learning about rural agriculture was fascinating. We loved relaxing in the country-side most of all on our trip next to seeing the Taj Mahal!
We would have skipped visiting Delhi and Varanasi because of the heavy pollution and focused more on the other locations we travelled to, particularly slowing down our two action packed days in Agra and Jaipur with more time in each. We stayed in one of our favorite hotels in Agra and would have enjoyed another night. The sights in these two cities, just warranted a more leisurely pace than we had planned for.
