Journey to India, Just Returned

Jump to last reply

What a wonderful journey! My husband and I have just returned from a 2 week visit to northern India. Many thanks to all of you who helped us in planning our trip. We appreciate all your input and helpful advice, as we worked for many months in developing our itinerary. Castle and King was our agent in India, and Arvind (the owner) was a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend C & K. Our guide was top-notch and very knowledgeable, and our driver was excellent - very important components of the trip.

My TR will follow, hopefully within the week, as soon as I recuperate from jet lag, etc.
Here though are some preliminary comments. We were very happy with the mix/variety of hotels: large chain hotel, palace, heritage property, Oberoi. For us, the length of stay at each location worked out well. The vehicle (Innova) was comfortable and safe for the various road trips, some of which were long distances. The flexibility of a private tour allowed us of course to set our own pace, make changes, stop for shopping where desired (or not), have our personal preferences and care met graciously, etc. C & K provided us with a cell phone for our use in India, which was indeed a reassuring convenience. We had a fantastic journey, filled with many special memories which we will always treasure.
