India Mother-Son 1st Time HELP

Jump to last reply

Hello! I am taking my son (who will be 17) to India in March 2017. We have travelled to many places and are hoping for a memorable trip. Could you please look at the itinerary we have and comment on choice of hotels, order of places, any changes you'd make, and - finally - the cost we've got so far. Trying to a have a range of experiences (Jaipur Friendly Villas for a home stay as well as some high end places)...but would love your insights!

We've been working with 3 different travel people, all based in India. This itinerary and cost is the middle price - there's one lower that includes no touring - and one higher which seems too hand-holding/precious for us. THIS ONE BELOW includes interior flights, driver, guides as we want them, and comes in at about $5900 TOTAL. We will use frequent flier miles to come from USA to Delhi.

I wish we could do a train trip in here, but it doesn't seem to fit...?!

We want to do hands-on activities (street tour in Delhi, cooking class, hike, any textile/craft, and WOULD LOVE A CRICKET LESSON). Thanks for your opinions!
