Reviews for Rajasthan Educational vacation on Art and Craft


review 1 Mar 2016

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

There were two big parts of our vacation: the culture and the nature. From a cultural perspective, we learned so much about the history of various cultures within Rajasthan. The forts we visited (Mehrangarh, Roopangarh, Amber) were amazing, but the highlight was definitely staying at Jog Niwas, where our host/organizer Shanane Davis lives. She taught us so much about patronage and connoisseurship, sharing with our whole family a remarkably vast knowledge about textiles, art, crafts, writings, perfumes, and so much more.

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

Don't expect to race from sight to sight over the course of each day. The pace is more gracious, focusing on experiencing important sights deeply rather than cramming in every possible experience. This is not a cookie-cutter tour that larger agencies will arrange for you, but rather a personalized experience.

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

Yes. We avoided chain hotels/restaurants and focused on sustainable and socially/ecologically conscious endeavors. I was most impressed when I asked about an elephant experience for our kids and Shanane said that she couldn't in good conscience arrange that because there weren't any operations in the region that treated elephants humanely.

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

It was an amazing, amazing experience. However many stars I'm allowed to give it, I wish I could give it even more. Thank you, Shanane!
