“Over all the holiday was excellent but felt it was a bit full on with no rest period especially at the beginning of the tour,and was not keen on having to be at the restaurant for evening meals so early after a day of touring,sometimes only an hour left from getting back to the hotel and then rushing down to the restaurant

Grand Tour of India, Nepal and the Himalayas

Mr D Wakeling

“It was a superb trip - India is a fabulous country could never disappoint, Nepal is also a great place to visit. However, a crammed itinerary with long coach journeys, long train journeys and many internal flights - not much time to catch your breath! I think the Itinerary needs to cut down on coach time in Nepal - an internal flight would help. Also, the long dirty train journey into Varanasi was unnecessary when there's a high speed alternative! Travellers to Kathmandu need to be aware how dusty the city is and the need for nose and mouth masks. Loved the extension to Kerala for a much needed rest! All in all a brilliant trip.

Agra Fort

Perched on a hill high above Agra, the Agra Fort was one of India's most important defensive structures. The country was also governed from here and the grounds were home to a state treasury and mint. The foundations of the current complex were laid between 1565 and 1573 on the remains of earlier Rajput fortifications. The fort complex is sometimes referred to as a 'walled city', due to its sheer size, and the number of different buildings within the grounds.

Incredibly, the walls encompass approximately a square mile, and are more than 60 feet (18 metre) high all round. Although not all of the complex is open to visitors, there are still a number of impressive buildings to look around, including the magnificent Jahangiri Mahal. This particular palace was designed for the ladies of the royal family.
