Trip review
India

loved their trip to India

Our trip involved travel to Delhi, Jodhpur, Narlai, Udaipur, Pushkar, Jaipur, Agra, and back to Delhi – the golden triangle with some extra gems. It was a fantastic trip and we will have many wonderful memories for years to come. Narlai is where we were fortunate enough to see two leopards in the early morning, the female high up in the rocks, on a perfect spot for us to see her clearly. The other was her nearly adult cub who was nestled in the rocks much further down. The Taj Mahal was unbelievably beautiful. We planned our trip to visit the Taj Mahal at sun rise at the end of the holiday before flying back to UK and it was truly spectacular. Luckily it wasn’t crowded and was worth getting up at 4.30am to see it in all its glory.

Best parts:
The quality of the hotels.
Worst parts:
1. Elephant Ride in Jaipur was ruined by the hawkers attempting to sell cheap trinkets. From the moment one got out of the car at the car park one was surrounded by groups of them and their constant efforts to sell did not stop even when on top of the elephant travelling around the paths. Hawkers would still follow the person on the elephant shouting out prices and continually attempting to pressure a sale. As it is a private site with security on the gate why do the management of the site allow this activity? I believe that you must use a different site for providing guests with elephant rides. 2. The hotel in Udaipur has a significant problem with its hot water heating system. We only had hot water in our room on one occasion in 3 days, even after raising the issue on a number of occasions with reception.

I have taken note of your comments about the hotel we will surely bring this to their attention. Unfortunately there is little that we can do about the issue in amer fort. We look forward to organize your trip to South India in the near future. Best Regards, PeterSee more
