Moghuls and Mystics
What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour
The highlight of my tour was bonding with a group of 12 complete strangers and finishing the trip the best of friends. We've all been in touch via Facebook and email since our return and I hope we continue to share our memories, stories and pictures. Other highlights? Where to start?! Visiting the beautiful Taj Mahal, a camel ride through the desert, a elephant ride to a fort, tuk tuk races in Delhi, shopping at bazaars, an unexpected game of cricket on the lawn at one hotel, playing charades on a seven hour train journey and visiting a family home and trying on saris.
Tour Leader Name
How Was Your Explore Tour Leader
Our tour leader Gordhon was fab! He was bundles of fun from the first moment we met him - and on our first night in India he took us to a Punjabi nightclub where he impressed us with his disco dance moves. We also loved his late night philosophical chats and the fact he took such good care of us all throughout the holiday making sure we all felt safe and happy. He amazed us during a visit to a bird park, where we found out he was able to name something like 2,000 different species, he was our very own Indian David Attenborough! We loved his enthusiasm, his local knowledge, his bartering to ensure we always got the best deals and his honesty, sharing with us details of his own life, including his arranged marriage at the age of 14.
What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour
Only pack casual clothes and travel light! Backpacks are a good idea, but small suitcases on wheels also worked well. Be prepared for quite a lot of travelling around and for some early starts - but also for lots of fun and many laughs. Be careful what you eat and drink to avoid Delhi Belly - we found that a vegetarian diet worked quite well!
Do You Have Anything Else To Add
Absolutely fantastic tour, with an exceptionally lovely and wonderful guide - and such a a friendly and lots of fun group of fellow travellers. Be prepared to laugh and to cry on this trip, as the poverty you will see can be upsetting, but also it's a great trip to see the real India and really get a feel for the country and the people. A life changing and unforgettable experience.
