Jantien van der Meer review 27 Apr 2019
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?
Visiting the Taj Mahal
2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?
If you experience motion sickness and/or claustrofobia do not get on the overnight train to Mumbai, instead choose to fly, probably you have to pay extra, but 16 hours in the overnight train was for most of our group members a horrible experience. You should also know that the train is very dirty, cockroaches are walking everywhere, toilets are dirty, and there are no waste bins so how lower in the train, the more waste gets on the floor of the train (food waste, disposables, diapers etc).
3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
Part of the tour is lots of shopping in stores where the guide takes you. So these salesman make benefits. Further more we did nothing to save conservation,
the only thing is that we got a bag in the beginning of the vacation in order to reduce our plastic waste.
4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
For vegan travelers India is very difficult and the food trip is not suitable for vegans. I would advise vegans to look for a vegan food tour.
