1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Where to start? ..... The vibrant colours; friendly people; interesting sights wherever we looked; visiting the village & meeting the local people at Shahpura Bagh; the incredible workmanship in the various palaces & forts.... I can see how India gets under the skin & can be addictive! Shahpura Bagh is a wonderful place to stay - good opportunity to switch off from the chaos & noise (car horns!) for a while.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared for long wait on arrival in Delhi (airport) for finger prints etc (took us 2.5hrs to get through which is difficult after a long flight). If you have a guide, try to avoid being taken into their "friends" various gem / carpet / textile stores - time consuming & irritating! Take time out without a guide to wander through the markets, go to cinema (Raj Mandir in Jaipur is well worth visiting) etc

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Employment for the guides / local agents / drivers. Drinking lassi from disposable clay cups in Jaipur - so much better than plastic / polystyrene. Shahpura Bagh - Waste paper bins with bags made from old newspaper. Support to local community through encouraging visitor support for various health, environmental & educational initiatives. Use of local produce. Employment of local people. Encouraged visits to the local village to meet people & see their houses so increased understanding.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

A wonderful holiday - stimulating, relaxing, exciting. Sanjay and his team were helpful throughout & made good recommendations.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

So many highlights and memories. We had an amazing 2 weeks. The vibrancy of India is stunning. The sights, smells, sounds and tastes surrounding us. When booking the trip we particularly hoped to see a tiger and we actually saw 2. So that was obviously a highlight, the range of hotels was stunning from palaces to game lodges - All equally welcoming. The organisation of the trip was great. The driver was very safe and the guides really knowledgeable.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

If planning a game drive buffs/dust masks are useful. Though if you don't bring one they can usually be bought at the gate.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Local guides were used throughout. Most of the hotels were locally owned and staffed. Visiting the reserves hopefully helps with animal conservation.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Fabulous.
