- A good tour for an introduction to India with a varied itinerary including cities, big sites, smaller towns and some wildlife spotting. It packs a lot into just over a week so it feels like a longer break. We visited in mid November and the weather was perfect - warm but not too hot. There is quite a bit of bus travel but there is always plenty to see as you travel. The Taj Mahal at sunrise is an obvious highlight and it didn't disappoint and the other forts and palaces were also impressive. Personally I really enjoyed the time spent at Karauli - wandering through the town and then visiting the faded glory of the old palace and the arti ceremony at the temple. I was surprised by how much curious and friendly attention we received including people wanted to take photos with us. Lots of good memories of smiles and waves in so many of the places.
