Great experience but very tiring. We could have flown direct to |Amritsar and then taken a train back to New Delhi. We could in each city have stayed somewhere close to the sights so that we would not have needed to spend hours extra stuck in traffic jams as we tried to cross the cities.
Excellent itinerary and choice of hotels
The flights with Jet Airways were not comfortable and the food was not great. This is separate from the issues with the airlines impending insolvency, it was to do with the lack of comfortable seating and legroom on the plane- and I’m a short person.

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.
The trip was well organised with everything running smoothly. The whole trip gave a good overall view of the diversity of Indian and Nepalese culture and life. The hotels were excellent with great food. The tour manager and guides were knowledgeable and accessible.
