- This is the best holiday I've ever had. The hotels were all fantastic (some people got worse rooms than me though) all had kettles, hairdryers and were perfectly clean.
The guide Anil was friendly, helpful and full of knowledge. The tour bus was spacious and comfortable although seat belts didn't work or were absent on many seats. The tour covered a vast array of sights although I'd have happily missed out the carpet and marble shops that are massively overpriced and quite boring in comparison to the rest of the trip. The highlight for me was staying in the palace and meeting the prince, king and queen.
Half of our group got to see wild tigers but my jeep had a poor guide and driver. You need a very warm coat and gloves for the game drive early morning.
Mosquitoes were a problem so take plenty of repellent. Even though I was fully covered 2 men on the metro groped me, not sure how you can avoid this totally but sitting rather than standing helps protect yourself if possible.
Changing money was a real issue so make sure you take cards as well as cash.
