Teri Cline review 18 Feb 2017
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
Meeting the people. They are very warm and inviting. When I got sick, the hotel people were awesome. The architecture is stunning.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
If you are traveling in February, know that Dehli gets fogged in as do other airports. We wasted almost 2 days sitting in airports waiting for late flights - not
happy about that. Have your hotel call the airport before leaving to see what is going on with the flight.
Get a list of tips from whoever books you. For example it would have been nice pre-trip to have a sheet of paper listing tip amount for different excursion
rides such as how much to pay rickshaw, tuk-tuk, all day, someone driving you from place-to-place etc.
Dress appropriately for the culture - you stand out as it is.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Thank you for your review and for your feedback, appreciated. I am pleased everyone assisted when you were not well.
I was sorry to see the review given was 3 star but I do appreciate your comments. Apologies for the foggy weather, something we cannot control. As I had mentioned when the airline decided from Agra to change the timing it was after you had left for the airport.
As for question three, everyone involved are local people and at Panna, your only wildlife destination on your tour - the owners are heavily involved in conservation not just here but also at another wildlife sanctuary Keoladeo National Park. As you flew between destinations of course I understand the environmental impact was not as light.
