- I would suggest taking a break between the two halves of this tour if time allows . The first half is full on and the second half not much more relaxed.
It is a very good tour and the Tour Leaders were excellent. It's a good way to get an introduction to India but the tour pace allows little time to get under the skin of India.
I wanted to do a tour before branching out on my own in India. I was glad I did, though India was not as difficult as I had been led to believe. In hindsight I would have picked a more relaxed tour, but these are not so easy to find.
Do read the trip notes carefully, especially about the extra costs for entrances and tips. And also please note the sums quoted, especially for entrances, are several years out of date. Entrance fees for foreigners are higher than quoted.
If starting in January note that the fog in the north will delay train journeys a lot. It can also affect flights.
