- Both tour leaders (Narji (North) and Tinu Abraham (South) were excellent and very knowledgeable. Varanasi, Udaipur, Kerala and Hampi were highlights for me. The things I didn't enjoy were the time spent travelling to each area (5-8hrs bus/coach journeys), maybe internal flights would be more beneficial as local flights are very affordable so shouldn't raise the price too much.
I was disappointed over the fact that pretty much everything we did was counted as an 'optional' so additional costs, but the costings included in the tour notes were extremely off (some x 4) and need to be updated annually. It would be preferrably to include these optionals as part of the tour and the price reflected in the overall cost. Optional should only be things such as if there are more than one choice for that day etc.
One last thing - the tour pace should be changed to Full On as we had a few older people that couldn't keep up with the pace...
