First time with Great Rail Journey as my usual single provider could only get me to Shimla as an add on and on my own. Have no interest in going to Rathambore for the tigers as I can see them at Chessington. Taj Mahal has been on a 50 year To Do list. Face timed with an Indian gentleman with his wife and 6 week old son. She was delighted when I came on the phone with a Namaste.

Well organised well informed. Ivan the tour manager was fantastic. Hemms the local guide was full of knowledge and kept us well informed. All tours throughout were fantastic and made the holiday.
Excellent organisation - nothing left to chance. Hectic schedule but some ‘downtime’ allowed. First visit to India and we certainly saw many sights (and sites)
Mr J Moffatt
Outstanding in every way. it was everything that I hoped for. We will be booking for next year for the Grand Tour taking in Nepal and Amritsar.

Enjoyed the itinerary, train travel and accommodations. Tour manager very good. Our luggage didn’t arrive for 6 days. The efforts of the local guide and Taj Palace staff were above and beyond.
