NORTH INDIA EXPLORED
As a whole I liked this trip: complete, well organised but there were a few things that made it not excellent as I had hoped and looked forward to. This was the poor cleanliness of the hotels: I can say they were acceptable but you do not have to look to much (corners, bathroom, armchairs, paint, switches where your fingers could stick, etc.). Great halls but the rooms did not match the outside appareance! Also, I was shocked by the huge amount of litter and dirt on the streets: never seen that anywhere else in the word and... I have travelled a lot... Other people in my group shared the same idea. The rest I knew = the poorness and the noice. I could cope with the poorness but the noice was sometimes unbereable! They blow their hoorns non-stop: it is they way of driving...! And the drive like mad! Crossing the road and arriving at the other end save is a real challenge!The palaces, forts and temples were a real pleasure for the eyes and senses but I find we visited them to quickly. Visiting such huge places in just 1 or 1,30 hours is too quick: I had the impression to be a Japanese rushing to visit as much as possible and just having time to take picture to be able to finally enjoy the trip at home... But it is true that I am not used to organized trips and maybe they are all like that... A pity because I had no time to really feel the place and fix it to my memory and senses and God knows that these places are worth visiting in a more relaxed manner so beautiful they are!
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Taj Mahal, Udaipur, Jaisalmer, Varanasi
What did you think of your group leader?
He was great! Knew a lot about India and shared all he knew with us. Never tired to answer all our questions and very proud about his country and cultures, what helps to make us like it even more
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
We do not need a rucksack for this trip. I had been told I needed one and this was not the case! Expect to find a lot of dirt and ugly smells on the streets as well as noice but the monuments are a compensation for that sacrifice
This was a lovely introduction to northern India. Our guide was knowledgeable and always had time to answer questions or take us to restaurants or even the cinema (a must do experience in India). We were if course disappointed not to see tigers on our trip to the national park. I would in the end have preferred to skip this entirely in exchange for more guaranteed experiences. On the whole a really god trip that I we remember fondly.
