First trip to India in November

Jump to last reply

I am planning my first trip to India and have been reading trip reports and threads here about India. My husband and I will fly from Boston to London November 1, spend three days in London, then fly to Delhi. We will spend three nights in Delhi, then I have arranged for a car and driver to go to Agra Friday, November 9. We will spend one night in Agra, seeing the Taj Mahal Saturday, November 10, then drive back to Delhi and spend the night near the airport.

November 11 we fly to Goa, where we are meeting my husband's cousin from London, who will be attending a high school reunion in Goa (she grew up in Bombay, as did my husband's mother). We will be staying with her reunion group at a hotel in Goa for two nights, then we will fly to Mumbai with her and spend five nights in Mumbai. We will then travel with her for two days to a nearby hill station, as yet to be determined. We return to Mumbai for one night, then fly out from Mumbai to London Wednesday, November 21.

I would love to hear advice about places to eat in Delhi, Agra, and Mumbai. Also about attending musical, dance, cultural, or theater programs in any of these locations.

I would like to make stops between Delhi and Agra, to see Fatehpur Sikri, perhaps Mathura and/or Vrindavan.

I am interested in suggestions for interesting sights and activities in any of these areas.

I am sure I will have more questions as I go along.

One thing is that my husband's cousin has sent us a list of things to do and not to do, such as being careful about food and drink. On this list she says not to sleep with air conditioning, as this might make us ill. Has anybody experienced this? Do those of you who have traveled to India use air conditioning at night?
