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.

This was a fantastic tour, but an extremely demanding one. Every day was crammed with seeing fantastic sights or travelling to or from them. Therefore, there was no time to relax or even shop, apart from the 3 upmarket stores chosen by GRJ! We stayed in 10 different hotels, all of which were of a very high standard. Our group of 31 got on so well, very supportive and caring for those of us who had 'the runs'
