- This is a full on 3 weeks and not a trip I would consider managing on my own. A lot of wonderful places and experiences are included and it exceeded my expectations. It was my first visit to India and I just loved it. Particularly all the Indian people we meet on our travels. Friendly, happy, welcoming and helpful. The Taj Mahal was a place I have wanted to go all my life. It didn't disappointed. Better than I ever imagined. The Golden Temple at Amristar was the first WOW of the trip and seeing a tiger in the wonderful tranquil Bandipur National Park another highlight. Train travel allowed us to experience real travel in India and interact with many fellow Indian travellers. The food was good throughout. No problems at all and a chance to enjoy many new flavours. Storage of luggage on the trains can be a bit tight so it is important to try and travel as light as possible. There are laundry opportunities on the trip. Getting currency along the way is easy so no need to carry huge amounts at any one time. Our guide did a great job keeping us on track and informed about options and relevant information on places visited.
