The diversity between the different hotels/resorts/homestays. We were excited over a lot of things, cultural, historical places and the people we met. The mix between interesting places and relaxing places. (more)Gustav Jagner
We very much enjoyed this holiday, completely met and often exceeded our expectations. (more)Carole Noble
An amazing way to get an insight into the many sides of India. Trains are a brilliant way to see the countryside and talk to Indian people. The tour company was the most helpful travel company I have ever dealt with and I highly recommend using them. (more)David Jelley

The most memorable was Ranthambore where we saw a tiger and a leopard as well as a host of deer and birds. (more)Catherine Hogan

Kerala budget holiday, tailor made
From
1,170
excluding flights
Spotting so many exotic and sometimes rare, birds. The journey through the Western Ghats. Meeting so many friendly Indian people. (more)Chris Bush
The variety of Kerala, the bird and wildlife, the friendly people, the wonderful fresh spices and delicious cooking, the houseboat, staying in homestays etc. One of the best holidays we have been on. Everything was very well organised. (more)Quentin Sharp
The most memorable moment was Dewalokom hotel & farm beautiful gardens, lovely family running it and fabulous food. Scenery and friendly people also memorable. Breath of fresh air. Wanted my children to appreciate how lucky they are to travel and to do this in a positive way for other people. (more)Sarah Pengilly

From
1,200

The highlight was having a huge range of experiences- some planned, some not. Talking with different Indians. (more)Nicola Dick-Cleland
There were so many memorable moments it was brilliant. Seeing tigers and leopards, staying in the most amazing room at Nadine's Haveli, travelling on the sleeper train visiting the elephants at Jaipur, the holi festival in Jaipur, the living fort at Jaisalmer, the camel ride, meeting so many lovely friendly and helpful people. (more)Graham Meadows
Very hard to choose from so many truly wonderful and diverse experiences. Generally, we'd say the unexpected opportunity to meet - and to spend some real quality time getting to know and learning from - a variety of local individuals was especially gratifying. Truly outstanding and quite unusual. Stimulating, challenging, and fun. Extensive opportunities to explore an incredible variety of stunning historical and cultural sites. (more)Janice McGuire
Rajasthan tours, India
From
918
excluding flights
Seeing tigers in Ranthambore National Park- yes two less than twenty feet away. I had no expectations of seeing so to come across one resting beside the track who was then joined by another was amazing. (more)Charmian Hobbs
Don't hesitate to book. Just go! It was amazing. The operator uses local transport, including trains. The hotels were small businesses and not part of large world wide chains. Our group was a mix of ages from 20 year olds to over 60's so it is suitable for all wanting to experience India. (more)Kathryn Heirons
Most memorable - the amazing places we stayed and the wonderful people we met most exciting - being driven through the streets of Delhi, it got the adrenaline pumping anyway! (more)Beki Williams

1,336
excluding flights
My stay at the Wild Mahseer in Assam was very special. Great hospitality, beautiful lodgings and interesting environmental projects. (more)Liz Mcmanus
I have told the holiday provider that they do a great job . (more)Joel Montague
The most exciting part was not on the original programme. We asked Rajat to give us somewhat more nature and less culture. He arranged for us to spend a day and two nights in a resort on the Kabini Lake, across from the Nagarhole National Park. On a boat safari at dusk, amidst myriad birds and beasts, we saw a male tiger emerging muddily from the river, slinking into the jungle. (more)Robin Fox
Tiger watching holiday in India
From
725
excluding flights
The most memorable moment was the first wild tiger we saw, just peeping through the bamboo. (more)Amanda Diggins

The most exciting part was spotting tigers and the hospitality of the wonderful staff at the Courtyard house. Excellent absolutely fantastic. (more)Andrew Reeve
Kerala luxury holiday
From
2,382
excluding flights
This was definitely a 4-star holiday!...By far the most memorable part for us was the houseboat cruise on the back waters. Two nights on a barge - we loved the leisurely pace as we moved slowly along the rivers, giving plenty of time for watching birds and also watching life as lived alongside the river. (more)Aldyth Rowe
Excellent...The backwaters trip and the stay at Serenity were the most memorable parts. (more)john still
It was a 100% enjoyable experience. We got really far off the beaten track & to the real Southern India (Kerala & Tamil Nadu). Seeing lots of wild fauna & flora, including elephant three times. (more)John Tams-Gray
Tadoba National park tiger safari, India
From
900
excluding flights
The most memorable moment was staying at the lodge, in the buffer zone, listening to the night around a bonfire with wonderful snacks and a gin and tonic, then visiting the local villages on a walk the following day. The jungle safaris were amazing particularly the elephant back experience and of course seeing the tigers. (more)Julia Killick
The most memorable was having the most amazing Tiger sightings. Superb, we had a great time and enjoyed both Tadoba and Kanha national parks, the lodges we stayed at and saw some amazing wildlife and birds too. (more)Jo Gaunt
I feel that I was looked after very well, Neelesh who organised my itinerary was most attentive. Where I stayed was beautiful and relaxing. Staff were excellent and very attentive (more)Kerrie Griffin
India family holiday
From
1,050
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were many memorable experiences - our rickshaw ride through the Dehli markets was definitely a highlight....what a culture shock! The noise, smells, heat and totally manic traffic dodging around cows in the streets is imprinted on the memory. Seeing the rural life in Rajasthan was amazing - how the locals live in their mud houses, working on the land by hand, and how friendly the people were to us. Staying in a Maharaja's palace was an experience. Seeing the Taj... (more)Janine Jackson
Rajasthan and Taj Mahal tour
From
900
excluding flights
The most memorable moments were Ranakpur Temple, wandering the streets of Bundi and visiting the Hindu temples there with the guide. It was a fantastic and rewarding experience which I will not soon forget. It really opened my eyes to a lot I didn't know about Indian culture and history... (more)Barton Colmerauer
The most important contributor to this was of course an excellent and friendly guide, who I would thoroughly recommend to others. (more)Gerry Scott
Kerala homestay tour, India
From
1,440

We really enjoyed the spice farm tour, snake boat race in backwaters and houseboat. Also had a lovely yoga lesson at Marari beach and particularly enjoyed visiting a village school in backwaters village. So many memorable parts! (more)Jane Bay
The houseboat on the 'backwaters' was the most memorable. Excellent. (more)John Ray
It is hard to pick out just one memorable monet but we loved the tea plantations - the rolling hills, the vast sea of green, the windy roads, the spices nearby and the history of the sector. (more)Anthony Blin-Stoyle
Delhi to Goa overland tour
From
622
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing was believing when it came to the Taj Mahal, not many places live up to be better than you anticipate as this place did. My wife and I have done some travelling, but this has to be the most impressive building we have ever witnessed. The Taj Mahal was almost worth the tour fee alone. Tips? Do not be put off by such a cheap price for the package, if we had paid treble we still would have been getting value for money! Don't be put off by such high attention from... (more)Jonathan Kenyon
Family holiday to India, sightseeing and safari
From
1,420
including UK flights
Memorable parts? It was all such a memorable trip! I guess the biggest pleasure I had this time was sharing my love of India with my 11 year old granddaughter. Jaipur was wonderful, as were the frescos in Nawalgarh and the amazing hotel in Surajgarh and I haven't mentioned Agra and Fatepur Sikri! Tips? Check the weather, it's cold overnight and early starts mean you need warm clothing as well as lighter cottons for the day time. My granddaughter had a problem with spicy food and...

From
2,650
including UK flights
Seeing tigers and leopards (an unexpected bonus) at really close quarters was the most memorable part. (more)Dave Torr
Actually seeing the tigers that we went to see was memorable - and very much more besides. A porcupine was a special unplanned and unexpected bonus. Faultless. A complex programme which was perfectly choreographed - and enjoyable to excess. (more)Ted Jackson
It was a fantastic trip. I saw some amazing wildlife and met some lovely people. The food was pretty darn good too. (more)Susan Hunter
Kerala luxury holiday, India
From
1,788
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The homestays were particularly enjoyable, allowing us some insight into everyday life in a way that can be difficult to experience as a tourist. Our hosts were warm, genuine, entertaining and thoughtful people who put a great deal of effort into ensuring that we got the best from our trip. It felt very sad each time we had to move on! Also, Keralan food is wonderful, though 3 home cooked meals a day can have a serious impact on your waistline (perhaps we should have refused... (more)Liz Livingstone

From
2,449

The most memorable moment was seeing a Wild Tiger for the first time and witnessing a Tiger stalk and live kill a cow from about 40 yards away, an amazing one in a life time moment!!! This was a great holiday, enjoying a group holiday for the first time, meeting folks from different walks of life, mixing with the local people... (more)Ian Harrison
Definitely a benefit for the local people with the money and jobs and investment in the school. (more)Linda Hall

Rajasthan tailor made tours, India
From
3,390
including UK flights
Memorable parts? The Taj Mahal has to be the most iconic visit. Having to get in the queue for the 6 o'clock opening was "different", but really worth it. Back to the hotel in time for breakfast AFTER visiting the Taj is something I shall be slipping into most conversations I have in the near future! Next was the 3 days in Jaipur where I felt like a princess being waited on hand and foot. Bed tea was lovely and sipping gin and tonic while watching a charming puppet show could have been part...

From
US $850
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We just returned from our customized cycling tour of Kerala India. We have been on a few good cycling tours in Europe but they could not compare to this extraordinary vacation. We were treated like royalty and so respectfully from the minute we were picked up at the airport until we departed. We wanted an active adventure and that's exactly what we had. We were enchanted by Kerala. The people we met while cycling on the roads as well as those we met in the accomandations... (more)Debby Zweibach
North Kerala tailor made holidays
From
1,400
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We traveled as a family and moved every couple of days so ever day brought something new and was memorable. What was exciting about this holiday was learning about other cultures and meeting people living in a variety of different ways. But as a family, the favorite experience was riding an elephant. Tips? Take plenty of hand sanitiser for when you are out and about and some toilet rolls too. Food is very cheap, eat out! Don't eat at the Sandesh Prince hotel in... (more)Gentian Bolt

Memorable parts? Varanasi was amazing and provided a great stay. Tips? Just go for it, you will love it, whether you are used to travelling or not, everyone on our trip enjoyed it and wanted more. Local benefits? On the trip we used local guides, driver etc which supported jobs in the various towns and cities. Using public transport ie the trains helped us get to various places easily and economically. Overall rating? Amazing, a must do for everyone. The guide was... (more)Joanne Rogers

India wildlife and culture tour, Rajasthan
From
1,270
excluding flights
Memorable parts? In our 3 weeks we had so many highlights -Delhi a very intense city - a person in our group called it --compressed humanity---walk through the spice markets, the kitchen at a Sikh Temple where they feed the poor -you can help out. All the forts, temples & mosques are so very different because there are so many different gods. A village lady who, as the goats were being brought in made us a cup of hot tea as soon as they were milked -very nice. Village children --all want... (more)Chris Hunt

From
Rupee85,000
excluding flights
Memorable parts? My wife and I went on this trip with our 17 year-old son. Even as seasoned travellers to India, we would never have been able to do this trip on our own because this part of central India really doesn't have much tourist/traveller infrastructure. Cycling from village to village was absolutely fantastic. Our wonderful guide, Saurabh, based in Raipur, was not only brilliantly organised and wonderfully knowledgeable about wildlife, architure, people, plants, birds, customs etc.... (more)Jonathan Drori

We had really memorable moments and sights in each place we visited, but our side trip to Bharatpur Wildlife Sancturary, and the birdwatching was a wonderful experience. The ancient forts and palaces and tombs and temples were amazing to see... (more)Judy Ainger
