Is anyone else booked up on this trip? Have my deposit paid.
I live in Dublin so I plan to get the group flight from Heathrow.
I've never travelled with Exodus before but they look very organised, I've done group trips in Canada and Mexico. I'm looking forward to this one!
You're right, it is the 22nd October we fly out, Exodus have the trip start date as the 23rd for people starting in India I guess?
Haven't sorted my Visa yet, leaving it until August.
Reckon its going to be a pretty full on trip!
Glad to hear someone else is booked up as well!
Talk to you again I'm sure,
I'm also booked on this trip and flying from Heathrow! There were 8 other people booked on when I booked a couple of weeks ago. It does sound pretty full on - but very good! I originally intended to book a relaxing holiday but changed my mind when I read about this one! I've travelled with Explore before but this will be my first trip with Exodus. I've heard lots of good things about Exodus - and the website is good! Look forward to hearing from you - and meeting you in October!
Thanks for your reply. No, I haven't got my visa yet - not sure whether to get it myself or go through Travcour. I had lots of vaccinations for a trip last year to Eritrea so I'm hoping a lot of them are still valid! I know absolutely no Hindi at the moment so will need to put some effort into that!
Although I am down as Louise, my real name is Tracey (somebody already has this username so had to use middle name)!! Graham and I are looking forward to the trip and sorted our visas last week. Posted them off on Monday and received them back on Friday!! Emily - we didn't bother going through Travcour (too expensive and you had to complete the on-lline application form anyway).
We travelled with Exodus a couple of years ago to Jordan and had a great time, the guide was really knowledgeable and a really friendly group.
Hi Andrew, Emily, and Anne-Marie
We went direct to http://in.vfsglobal.co.uk/ (India Visa Application Centre). You have to complete the on-line application form, print it, sign and date it and then send it along with your passport and payment (£38 p.p) to an address in Hayes. The form was a bit fiddly as you have to complete it in one go (you can't save it and then finish it later), but I was very impressed at how quick they processed the passports.
I checked at my GP practice yesterday for injections and all mine are up to date, and the areas we are travelling to don't require Malaria tablets, so that's made me a happy person!!

Just in case you're wondering why my posts have disappeared. I had some technical issues with my account and it has since been deleted and recreated, hence the removal of my posts on here.
Speak to you all soon.
Hi there everyone ...
Really looking forward to the trip and meeting up with everyone.
I've used Exodus a couple of times and both trips have been brilliant !
I'm meeting everyone in India as I'm booked on a different fligth so will see everyone at the airport in the morning when they're feeling sparkling after the night flight ! :)
Another fellow traveller! Really looking forward to the trip, and the departure date is approaching fast. I just received my visa yesterday, and I've paid the balance, so it's all on.
I'm sure we'll all have questions nearer the time, but good to hear from an Exodus veteran.
See you in India!
I am also going on this trip. Great to see so many folks already on-line. I am joinng the group in India - so look forward to meeting everyone in Delhi after your flight. I am from San Francisco - but lived in the UK for 2 1/2 years (so I do speak English - don't worry). I will be traveling in India with friends who live in Bombay for ~three weeks before this tour.
I haven't ever been on an Exodus tour either - but excited to meet the group. See you in India!
Hi Courtney and everyone else going to Northern India!
Are you all set? The departure date is approaching fast. I'm sure we'll all have more questions to ask soon, but my first one is anyone else taking a large rucksack as their main luggage? I've got a 70 (+20 litre day rucksack). I think that will be enough as I guess I will be travelling fairly light.
I've also had my jabs and got my visa. I'm also gathering a list of commonly used hindi which should prove to be useful.
Anyone else got any questions or concerns they would like to share?
Courtney, you'll be used to India life and culture by the time you meet up with the rest of the group. :)
Looking forward to meeting you all either at Heathrow or in India. See you there!
Better late than never, for those of you on here last minute, hello, I'm joining you on this trip so I'll see you very soon.
Just checked in for the Heathrow flight so all ready to go now, can't wait!
Safe journey everyone, see you in Terminal 4 or Delhi.
