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

How can you answer this with a small response about how wonderful one thing in India is ??? The first car ride (mad), Delhi (wonderful), Agra (astounding), Udaipar (Calm), Chittor (so different and off the beat), Bundi (what a place), Ranthambore (Two tigers and 40 minutes viewing so what can I say), Jaipur (blimey), Jodphur (myths and legends in luxury), Jaisilmer (colour and people so brilliant). What was the best, the people were astounding we met across the whole trip and I think we made some lifelong friends (barring idiots who you get in all countries of course). Go here, be astounded as pictures don do any of it justice.

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

Take it as it comes, don't judge anything and really enjoy all of the street life, food and people.

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

Hopefully as we used local guides, accomodations and restaurants everywhere. Ranthambore is a conservation area for the tigers so hoping fees go into helping hem and the other animals in the parks. Took the train (19 hours), wife loved it in 3AC !!

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

I went with some expectations and it blew away all of my preconceptions and totally wowed me.

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

Visit to Cochin in Kerala. The taj Malabar is a unique one!!! And also Usaipur, the city is great and the Leela palace hotel is a must seen.

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

You need to come to India with a lot patient , and get used to the way of living and the way they communicate. The roads are pretty good , but very crowded lots of horning and the average speed is 50 km/h.

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

Yes, we visited small places, ate and purchased food and services from local producers.

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

The holiday was good , I would do some changes and improvements though. Some accommodations should be improved . It is not enough to choose an hotel, you need also to pick the type of room you like, there are big differences in some hotels. The drivers in Kerala understand basic English only. If you reserve transportation , you must have conformation that it is a relative new one and in good condition. The house boats in Kerala backwater are nice but the accommodation on board was poor and not clean. A Luxury boat - means you get air condition all the time, It is not a Luxury accommodation !!!

We thank Mr Itay for sending his valuable feedback as it helps us to know better our guests requirements. Sometimes it really becomes difficult to understand the need of a guest in terms of selecting accommodation as there is always a scope of improving.We have taken a note on accommodation and will surely do our best to explain the guest in advance. Thanks

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

The Taj Mahal. It's everything it's claimed to be. A remarkable building that shows little sign of age. We visited in the afternoon then went back at dawn. It's well worth two visits

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

We had some confusion when arriving at Delhi airport. I suggest travellers get it clear where to find their driver and what will be on the sign. Also have the mobile number of the company so they can ring if something goes wrong.

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

Yes. We had a different guide for every city. Our driver who was very good came from a foothills village but worked in Delhi to earn cash.

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

We had a tailor made holiday which suited us as we only had 9 days and couldn't fit in with any of the tours. We had a good vehicle and were happy with all the hotels.

We much appreciate the feedback as itís a constant process of improving and delivering the best. We have taken a serious note about the confusion upon arrival and now have started giving a 24 hrs helpline phone number well in advance.
