Need help choosing a tour company.

Jump to last reply

At the end of last year, we toured of northern India on the Maharaja's Express, and had a wonderful trip. We would like to return to India to see a different area of the country (still to be determined which area). We loved the train journey, but after a review of itineraries for the Indian luxury trains, I find nothing that's exactly right for us, in terms of length of the trip (prefer about 2 weeks) and itinerary that avoids revisiting the places we've already seen, so I would like to plan an individual or small group tour that's tailored to our needs.

I am not necessarily asking for recommendations of what to see at this time, but rather, recommendations for a company that will help us put together a personalized tour. We're in our 70's, and normally make our own way in the world (no tours, just go wherever on our own), but at this time of life, doing that in India seemed like more trouble than it's worth (according to my son and his wife, who found it difficult and unpleasant to tour India on their own). Hence our first trip on the Maharaja's Express. We loved that trip (and the level of luxury and comfort it provided),and the country, and would like to return again, provided we can find a suitable company to help us with the arrangements. We could obviously arrange this trip on our own, but knowledgeable help with itinerary, travel arrangements, and hotels seems like a better idea (judging from other posts in this forum).

Looking forward to your recommendations.
