1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Because the constantly changing landscape and places visited are so varied, and so stunning, no day stood out more than the others. I completely enjoyed every one.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Take into account the seasonal variations and level of accommodation when packing. I went in winter and on reflection decided to take clothes for an English autumn plus a pair of shorts, lightweight down jacket, baseball cap and beanie. Given that the lodges and hotels used on the comfort trip are truly excellent, and have battery charging sockets and laundry services at reasonable prices, there is no need to overpack. During the two night stays, you'll get what laundry you need, sorted out. Also I decided (for the first time!) not to do a lot of guide book reading beforehand. As was pointed out to me, this can be a good thing! Because of the traveling there is plenty of time to sit back, absorb and learn as the journey unfolds. There really were numerous occasions when we all just looked and shook our heads in wonder.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, but to what extent is hard to say. Certainly we're there and contributing to the local economies. And since we're sharing transport, it's an efficient way to travel. Also by being there we are showing interest in the local places of interest, parks and landscapes that has to raise their profile and hopefully be seen as an asset by those positively affected by tourism. However the needs of tourism, should not hold back local economies to the detriment of the majority.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Brilliant! Beautiful, interesting and educational.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Each day was packed with memorable moments, but if I had to pick one day it would be when we went to a very small town to stay in a fort/castle overnight. We went walking through the small village in the afternoon and the people were so lovely and friendly, very excited to see us. It was a really fantastic afternoon. Then in the evening we could hear and watch as two wedding happened in the village, so we asked many questions and learned a lot about Indian weddings from our guide.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

It does get very hot during the summer months, but you still need to stay more covered up. So I would suggest people bring really thin light clothes.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, definitely.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was fantastic. I can't wait to go back one day.
