This trip was a wonderful taster of all that Rajasthan had to offer. Travelling long distances, although tiring, meant that experiencing all of Rajasthan was possible. From the bustling of Delhi to the calm of Ranthambore, this trip will have something for everyone.
A fantastic introduction to this amazing country. The food, the people, the history, the sights, the sounds....my senses were constantly bombarded with new experiences at every turn. India had been on my travel bucket list for a long time and it did not disappoint...I'm already planning to go back!
A complete assault on the senses! As an ex-travel agent and very much an independent traveller, I was a little hesitant about an organised tour. However, for first timers to India, a small group tour is a brilliant way to fit everything in. Yes, it was a whistle stop tour, but was a wonderful introduction to India. I loved the way Indian people kept asking for photographs with us, and struck up conversations. Only one issue..... where do we go next?
This was our first trip to India and it provided a fascinating introduction. It is aptly named. The colours are truly amazing. Even though some of the journeys were long, there was almost always something interesting to observe from the window.The itinerary was full and the local guides very informative, as was our tour leader. We had a very friendly group, a great tour leader, lots of good food and are already thinking of planning our next holiday in India!
I thought this was an excellent trip, designed to the highest standards I have come to expect from Exodus. It has a fantastic itinerary of fascinating places, forts and temples, supported by good accommodation. It is rightly designated 'Leisurely' as very little walking is involved, and personally I would have liked a bit more exercise, but there are some long journeys which may be a consideration for some travellers.
While some days on this trip were truly exceptional, there are days that could be removed and the trip would not suffer. The sightseeing around Delhi was disappointing as most of it was viewed from the bus. Pushkar may be a good place to visit during the camel fair, but the fair was not on during my visit and I found Pushkar to be a waste of a day. The extra day would be better spent in either Udaipur or Jaipur.
This was our first visit to India and it couldn't have gone better.The sights, smells and colours of Rajasthan will live long in the memory. we travelled long hours on the coach but this only added to the experience as there is so much to see while on the road. We had plenty of stops along the way to visit the forts and palaces that adorn this area.
