review 6 Jan 2012

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

Seeing the Taj Mahal and experiencing the Ganges

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

There is a lot of travelling and local amenities are not at the standard we are used to in Britain.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

I think we probably benefitted a few people who may be associated with the trip leaders rather than the communities we encountered more generally.

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

A great experience. Lots of travelling, not easy or relaxing or luxurious but it's India and it is an amazing place, wonderful people and a lot to see. This trip is tiring but worth it.

review 2 Mar 2011

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

Dawn boat trip at Varanasai, the Taj Mahal, a visit to the Sikh temple, the food and the shopping!

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

Think twice if you have a bad back as the roads and very bad and a large proportion of the day is spent travelling either by coach or by train (up to 15 hours by train). Remember to change your rupees back before customs on the way home as it is illegal to take currency out of the country and no-one will help you if you take some through by mistake.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes - trips to local communities, shops and schools, shopping opportunities in local co-operatives.

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

Excellent but you need to be prepared for v long days and lots of travelling.
