My husband and I are planning a DIY trip (with driver and periodic guides/ walking tours) to northern India at the end of February. We are well traveled but have never been to India. Quite honestly, we have reservations about doing so, especially after reading the Bloomberg article "Indian Travel Boom Is Sending Tourists Home With Superbugs." In any case, here's the plan. I think it is a little too rushed, however I don't know where to add an extra day – Jaipur? We could possible add two extra days and do Ranthambore Tiger Preserve. I've read mixed reviews; it doesn't seem worth it to me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
