An excellent trip! It was tiring but very interesting. The tour guides were excellent and very knowledgable about the history of India.
Our taxi driver was brilliant. He turned up every day at the time arranged and drove us long distances in heavy traffic, always with a smile on his face.
I would highly recommend this tour.

This was my first trip to India and I had business in another part of the country but wanted to see the famous sights since I had traveled so far. This was a perfect tour for that. I had a great driver and he traveled with me throughout. In each city, we met a different guide and most of them were also excellent and flexible. There is no quicker and simpler way to see so much and get a good feel for the culture and people in a short time.
