- An exceptional tour with plenty of variety. The distances traveled are long and you need to enjoy sleeping on Indian trains but it is a great way to experience being in India. The contrast between North and South is huge; not just the scenery but also the culture and cuisine (and temperature!). Overall I was very impressed with the standard of the hotels. The majority were better than I have stayed at on similar trips. The tour leader was excellent and my only criticism is that Explore need to update their information about currency. Use ATMs and cards; taking cash is a bad idea and you are offered very poor exchange rates.
