- This tour does need a lot of stamina but is good for anyone visiting India for the first time and/or wanting a general insight and whistle-stop experience of India. (Forget Marigold Hotel).
I extended my trip at both ends and wish that I had allowed longer.
Highlights were the Lotus Temple in Delhi which was organised for me by the tour leader, sailing down the Ganges and overnight camping on the banks of the River Ganges, the camel safari was better than anticipated. We also had an opportunity to join a Hindu Wedding Party.The Ganges Aarti Ceremony was beautiful and also discovering the SHEROES CAFE in Varanasi was very special.
The school visits and children were delightful.
I am usually an independent traveler but felt that I wanted extra support and security in India. I am glad that I did and by the end of the tour was confident enough to go on to Mumbai alone.
