It's big, it's bold, it's busy - and there is nowhere in the world quite like it. Delhi's sights and sounds are sure to engage and intrigue.
Like a city risen from the desert sands, Jaisalmer's sand-coloured buildings, busting bazaars and fascinating living fort all help give the city a wonderful old-world feel.

With dusty hills in the background and tranquil lakes its centrepiece, Udaipur is a truly beautiful city with fabulous heritage buildings, restaurants and narrow laneways.

North India Unplugged, March 2014
Good tour, good tour leader but felt like a very rushed trip. Excellent and friendly tour guide. My only advice to him would be to limit how much information he gives the group at one time. Because of all the different accents with in the group and our different levels of attention, giving too much information for activities and plans in the future only leads to confusion. Have people rely more on the paper given to us at the start of the tour to see what will come in the future in general. I know he was just trying to be helpful but people tended to be confused and then had to rely too much on him for questions and understanding what was happening that day, which quickly becomes a burden to the guide.
