The tour is good value for a comfortable type of travel and accommodation that is provided by G Adventures. It gives you a touch of India in some of the popular areas, and hey it goes to the Taj Mahal and everyone has to see that if they go to India.

This is a great tour as it takes in some really wonderful sights such as Jaipur and the Taj Mahal. It made travelling around easy, as India can be challenging when arranging oneself.

I thought it was a great overview of the major sites in North India. Accommodations exceeded my expectations. Hotel with a pool was great, since there were no activities planned for that day. The tour bus was nice and well maintained. Tour guide was knowledgeable.

I thought that Kush, my tour guide, was extraordinary. He knew the answers to all of our questions and even provided us with interesting and funny stories about Indian history and culture. For the time allotted for this trip, the itinerary was well thought out and covered all of the best sites and attractions.

This was a great introductory tour of India which has left me with some wonderful memories. So much was packed into a single week, with everything from visiting important historical sites to going to a Bollywood movie. Our guide picked out some tasty suggestions for eating places and knew the best markets for buying souvenirs. I feel that in just seven days we really managed to get under the skin of India. And I made some good friends as well.

The tour was amazingly run by our guide Abi, who was an amazing source of information on any subject that we could think of to ask him about. He related his amazing in depth knowledge of the history and culture in a manner that was both fascinating and entertaining. Abi was able to deal with any problems that arose quickly and efficiently. Overall I had an amazing time on this tour and would recommend it to everyone.

I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone. Our tour guide Abhi Chhetri was excellent. Very knowledgeable, full of energy and extremely helpful and kind. We had a fantastic group, really gelled with each other. I wasn't expecting such nice accommodation but I couldn't fault it. I wasn't looking forward to the road trip as I have experienced India's road's before. The driver and his assistant were very safe and I never felt nervous or uncomfortable once. I am planning my next trip with G Adventures for sure.

This was a wonderful excursion full of both beautiful and heart wrenching sites, remarkable history, and eye-opening unforgettable experiences. I believe that traveling with our excellent guide and fellow group members gave this trip a depth and smoothness that would not have been achievable had I been traveling alone. I wholeheartedly enjoyed this tour.
