Memorable parts? Experiencing the rich variety and beauty of Kerala Tips? Give yourself enough time in each place to really experience it and do some walking - don't travel too quickly! Local benefits? Yes - by staying in homestays we felt the money went into the hands of local people rather than big coimpanies Overall rating? It was great - smoothly organised, relaxed and enjoyable but we experienced much of the rich variety and beauty of Kerala (more)Lonica Vanclay

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

Amazing, we would love to go back! (more)Vaughn Lewis
Rajasthan and Taj Mahal tour
From
£900
excluding flights
There were many memorable moments - the scale and grandeur of the various palaces and forts with the Taj Mahal, Fatehpur Sikri, and Jaipur standing out... The marble carvings at the Jainist temple at Rankapore were quite extraordinary. We really enjoyed Bhindar, not just staying in the Palace, but the waking around the town without a tourist shop in sight! (more)Tim Johnston
Finding ourselves in India at Holi - and being involved! We were prepared, by our guide, for what would happen - the showering of colours onto friends and strangers alike - and so dressed accordingly, and joined in! As a result, we had great fun! (more)David Lynn
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
Tadoba National park tiger safari, India
From
£950
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

Seeing a herd of wild elephants up close and the tea plantations was the most memorable. (more)Trish Butler
We enjoyed it as a whole experience. We loved the countryside, the vistas, and particularly the variety of birds we saw. Fort Kochi was a contrast -bustling, colourful and quirky with the peace and tranquillity of Munnar and then the backwaters. (more)Sue Rice

From

The most exciting part of the holiday was seeing the tigers in Kanha National Park. We were lucky enough to see a tiger kill only 20m from our jeep which is very rare to see so the most memorable part. (more)Margaret and Georges Norah
The most memorable was seeing three tigers on two separate sightings. Unforgettable! An amazing experience - wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone! (more)Kevin Mulcahy
The most memorable moment was the first wild tiger we saw, just peeping through the bamboo. (more)Amanda Diggins
History, culture & wildlife of India holiday
From
£1,336

Probably the most exciting thing was seeing two tigers (on separate visits - one on the boat safari and one on a land safari) in Nagarhole National Park - astonishing. But equally memorable was the temple tour in Madurai - it felt a privilege to visit when so many pilgrims were also worshipping at the temple. (more)Lynn Crowe
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

Awesome organic farm in Kerala was fantastic for kids- swimming in river, milking cows, home grown foods, fantastic service (dewakolam). A splurge yet incredibly memorable. (more)Rebecca Rosenberg
The whole holiday was amazing - it would be difficult to select one bit. However the food was excellent. It was excellent! Our original plans were to book on a small group holiday but we found travelling on our own with a driver was a good experience that we would like to repeat. (more)Caroline Cobbing
Spotting so many exotic and sometimes rare, birds. The journey through the Western Ghats. Meeting so many friendly Indian people. (more)Chris Bush

Remarkable - This was a wonderful holiday - The itinerary put together by Shanane gave us everything we wanted and more!! (more)Scott Paget
We had the most marvellous holiday ever, as everything had been superbly and seamlessly put in place by our tour organiser.

Of course, the Taj Mahal was a highlight, but so were the Aravelli hills, the city of Bikaner... (more)Annette Jones

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

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
India family holiday

£1,050

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

The early morning ceremony at Varanasi, followed by the boat on the Ganges was the highlight of the trip for both of us. Excellent. (more)Jenny Martin
The whole 2 weeks in Rajasthan, Delhi and Amritsar were magical. The Taj Mahal and Golden Temple more than exceeded my expectations. The memories of the wonderful people, noises, colours and smells will be with me for many years. (more)Sarah Day

From
£1,858

Memorable parts? There were several memorable parts to our holiday, 24 hours on the boat in the Kerala backwaters, a couple of days in the hills surrounded by beautiful tea fields, a cycle rickshaw tour of a city and two days in a bungalow on the shore of the Arabian Sea to name a few. Tips? Local benefits? Local drivers, guides and cycle rickshaw drivers were used, giving employment to local people. Overall rating? It was a great holiday. (more)Sheila Thomas
India wildlife and culture tour, Rajasthan
From
£1,270

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

So much to praise about this wonderful trip! - Sleeping at night listening to the sounds of the jungle at Shergarh – a most extraordinary and luxurious tented safari camp near Kanah. - Visit to Phen Wildlife Sanctuary, so lovely that there were no other jeeps, like safaris were fifty years ago. So peaceful to stop the jeep and listen to the sounds of the animals and the jungle. (more)Lesley Fairbairn
Every day of my trip was exciting and memorable. It was a truly wonderful experience to explore rural Chattisgargh with a seamlessly tailored holiday. I felt I made friends every step of the way and a part of me has stayed with a wish to return. (more)Gwyneth Wright

From

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

Memorable parts? There are so many very special moments, but we feel that this holiday enabled us to become involved with local people and their culture that we couldn't have achieved independently. We also enjoyed the combination of nature, wildlife and city attractions. Tips? This tour offered so much more in reality than can be described in a brochure. Local benefits? Certainly we interacted and used local people as much as possible. Overall rating? Excellent, all... (more)Amanda Eley
