If travelling in India...ask for Tarang Chandola ....a brilliant guide ! Articulate....informative......ALWAYS accessible.....knowledgeable...ALWAYS willing to explain everything----- with understanding & humour. He candidly spoke of his life, family and aspirations. Our group felt Terang became a friend travelling with us ----- as well as guiding.
