As expected, visiting hectic India was a cultural adjustment and an eye opener. Sri Lanka was beautiful and so peaceful with amazing scenery. The Maldives is excellent for diving, snorkeling and relaxing.

We really enjoyed all aspects of the trip. Our favourite parts included the tour of Old Delhi, the bike tour in Jaipur, the sunset walk at the Taj Mahal, staying at a palace in India. The safaris were incredible (seeing tigers, elephants and leopards) and the fish market, hikes and train ride in Sri Lanka were stunning. Our driver, Deena in India, was wonderful, looked after all of our needs and even made a special thoughtful stop for sweets on my birthday. The recommended lunch restaurants were all very good. Our local agency and Antiquity were both very responsive and looked after all of our special requests before and during the trip. Staying in a water bungalow in the Maldives, was the perfect ending to our trip.
The only disappointment was the quality of the initial hotel we stayed at in Delhi, and often the nicer hotels were single nights only and the lesser hotels for two nights. Some of the temple and fort history and detail provided by the guides was a bit overwhelming. We did not really need local reps at each of the hotels in India , when we already had a guide and driver at our disposal.
