A great trip and thanks to Pema for his friendship and knowledge. He was very good at ensuring that my choice of food was gluten-free. Very much appreciated. Thank you

This was an absolute whirlwind of a trip! Every day the itinerary was packed and included everything from historic sites, busy cities and wildlife. We travelled on coaches, trains, rickshaws, autorickshaws, boats, cable cars (and did a bit of walking too)! There are too many highlights to mention but I particularly loved Chitwan, Delhi, Taj Mahal and Jaipur. The standard of the hotels was very high overall and included a good selection of hotels and lodges (particularly loved the lodge at Chitwan)! The overnight train was an experience - was comfortable enough but be prepared to share a compartment with total strangers without even a curtain to separate you (an interesting experience if one of your fellow passengers stays up half of the night eating pasties)! I hadn't been quite prepared for this.

Pema was an absolutely excellent tour leader - fun, personable, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and organised.

Sometimes the travel time between places took a bit longer than indicated on the itinerary, and the free time mentioned on the itinerary was sometimes less than expected - but I think this is more down to the fact that the itinerary was not always very realistic in what could be fitted in and in terms of the condition of the roads. The tour is graded as 'full-on' and this is no exaggeration! Nearly everyday is a fully packed itinerary with some early starts and some long days, and there are a number of one night stops which makes for quite a tiring trip. But the flip side of this is seeing an amazing amount in a short space of time. Would definitely recommend this trip!

This is an absolutely full on trip which is an attack on all of your senses.

Our tour leader "Sanjeev" was brilliant - we were there at the start of the currency "situation" and he did everything he possibly could to ease the worry and help us out, as well as the more normal aspects of the tour leader's job like keeping us all together and making sure we packed in as many of the optional activities that we could.

We were lucky enough to see a tiger (ok it was from a distance) in Ranthambore and saw a one horned Rhino up close in Chitwan - but every destination on this intinerary was full of amazing things to see - from the spectacle of Varanasi to the spectacular views of the Annapurna Range from Pokhara.

My only niggle would be the tour notes should be updated with more realistic travel times between some of the destinations. The journey from Pokhara to Kathmandu was quoted as 5 hours on the notes - it was nearer 10 which is due to the road currently being under construction, (and has been for the last 2 years and is unlikely to be finished in the next 2)

All in all, a great holiday - highly recommended.

Well, as Im just returned from the trip and still buzzing somewhat, Id say the highlights were seeing the markets in Delhi, the observatory in Jaipur (and later driving the tuktuk back to the hotel at night with the driver as passenger) then the trains which are a crate to India, rowing the boat on the Ganges and, after crossing the border, everything in Nepal. The stupas, Buddhas sites, paddling on Pokara lake and the last day in Kathmandu spent chilling watching the volunteers paint the post-earthquake Boudhanath stupa prior to its finishing ceremony next week.

The itinerary is indeed 'full-on' and only viewing my photos once all dowloaded next week, will illustrate just how extraordinary this adventure was.

Amil Kumar, our tour leader was a credit to you.

Fast and furious, non stop and full on. You get to experience India and Nepal at all levels from tuktuks, overnight trains to floating down the Ganges in a small boat. Five star hotels,lakeside retreats to Eco lodges. Rising before the sun in order to capture amazing sights, travelling hours in order to witness beautiful landscapes, all of this is well worth the tiredness you will inevitably have to fight through. What an absolutely fantastic holiday.

Taj Mahal and Ganges sailing and camping were the highlights for me. The range of accommodation and transport was brilliant, to cover so many across the tour was a great experience. The success of the tour however lay in the hands of our guide Anil Kumar who was absolutely amazing. So knowledgeable and passionate about his culture and heritage and understanding of the needs of both the group and the individuals within it. It was a truly memorable trip.

It is an amazing trip, everything was awesome can't say in specific what was the best since it is a fascinating place.
In regards with Kathmandu it is not like the news make it out to be , yes there are some small issues but all is all workable , I would had miss this beautiful place if I would had listen to the media.
My guide Indhira became my Hindu mother , we had a blast !!!
Just bring lots of money if you are a shopper !! Many beautiful things to buy !!

Take warm clothing for the evenings.
Indira made it special with her proffessionalism very accomodating and helpful.
Efficient no complaints.
I loved the boat trip was so relaxing and peaceful watching life go by on Ganges needed it as quite a shock on streets & camp.

This trip cannot be beaten for sheer excitement and variety.My highlights turned out to be the days that I was most worried about or least interested in doing! The two days sailing down the Ganges were sublime and the Taj Mahal really is beyond words in real life. No picture or words can do it justice. My number one though has to be Bodnath in Kathmandu. I spent the whole of the final afternoon there on my own, monk and Tibetan woman watching! Sitting in a rooftop cafe admiring the stupa from on high and soaking up the relaxing spiritual atmosphere will stay with me for a long time. Incredibly well organized, patient and full of funny anecdotes. Any money problems and we knew we could go to the bank of Sorab!

We have booked three different holidays with Explore all on-line. We have found them always helpful when needed to clarify information. This year the information given before we travelled was much more in-depth and helpful.
Thank you Explore from two very happy travellers.
