- This was a full-on tour that took in the major tourist towns and pilgrimage sites across North India. I saw wonderful buildings and experienced India at its noisiest and busiest. The Taj Mahal was incredible and so was the Red Fort and Amber Fort, the City Palace of Jaipur and the Ghats of Varanasi. Our tour leader was exceptional in his care for the group and made sure that we were safe; that we ate and drank safely and always had an experience to enjoy.
The hotel accommodation was good or very good but I do not enjoy sleeping on trains. The trains do not run to time and can be hours late. Camping was good and the food wonderful. Sailing on the Ganges was a personal highlight.
I spent £450 on food, drink, optional excursions and tips.
