Highlights of Northern India

Northern India

This tour is worth consideration as you see and experience the wonderful sites of Northern India. After time both in Nepal, Goa and southern India this must be a must. Visiting major important sites under expert leadership both enhances and develops individual knowledge of India and its past.

The trip was most enjoyable. India is amazing.It was great to visit Jaipur, Rathambhore National Park, Fatephur Sikri, Agra - Taj Mahal and Varanasi -all in the space of a week and to do so comprehensively. The guides were great. I would have liked to see New Delhi but unfortunately the train delay meant we couldn't do a tour.It would be worth factoring in an extra day to do this.

A fantastic trip from start to finish. Intense and pretty non-stop but an excellent overview of northern India from the sights of the capital city Delhi and Jaipur through to tiger searching in Ranthambhore, from the magnificence of the Taj Mahal and Fatehpur Siki to the chaos and deep spirituality of Varanasi on the Ganges

An excellent choice for those aiming to see some of the best sights of Northern India in a relatively short space of time. The trip would most certainly have delivered if it had not been for adverse weather conditions (fog) that resulted in the cancellation of the journey to Varanasi. Six of us decided to make our own way to Varanasi by plane. The local Exodus office kindly assisted us with organising transfers to the airports, hotel and sightseeing in Varanasi. Everything turned out all right in the end but we had to cover all the extra costs.

New Year around Northern India

This is a fast paced tour around some of the popular tourist sites of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh states. There's a good variety to see, but fog was something of a hindrance on most mornings at this time of year (late December) and resulted in an itinerary change that meant we missed out on Varanasi, but saw the less frequently visited sites of Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur and Mathura instead.

unexpected let down

3
Booked the Golden Triangle trip that went Boxing day and returned January. Knew it was going to be fast paced trip ( had 'done' Egypt some years ago) However, after an overnight flight ( 8 hours - plus the 3 hr before at airport and the hour or so when landed ) found the 5+ hours straight off on 'coach' very tiring. Jaipur - pink city was good. loved the elephants with their decorations. Taj was good and worth a visit- be prepared for it to be shrouded in mist at this time of year. Then all went wrong- overnight train cancelled -therefore not go to Varanansi, no trip on Ganges etc. Got put up in disgraceful hotel in Agra on New Years Eve. What a let down - cancelling Varanansi bad enough but better accommodation should have been sought. Alternative itinerary followed.Visit to Bharatpur and Mathura - another game park ( mainly birds ) and various temples. What made it worse was the trip before this one had experienced the same problem and yet no e mail was sent warning us of possibility of change.

This was a whirlwind of a tour around some of the best sights that northern India has to offer, which was excellent despite our having to forgo the train journeys to and from Varanasi (these were either cancelled due to fog or severely delayed). Instead of visiting Varanasi we spent an afternoon at the bird sanctuary in the Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur, and the following day went to Mathura, a sacred city rarely visited by foreign tourists where the deity Lord Krishna is said to have been born on the site of Sri Krishna Janma Bhoomi, a Hindu temple. The city lies next to the Yamuna river and features 25 ghats (flights of steps down to the water) where every evening an aarti ceremony is held, similar to but of smaller scale as that which takes place in Varanasi. In the circumstances, I thought the alternative itinerary was a worthy replacement, although it was naturally very disappointing to have missed out on the Indian train experience and Varanasi.

This is a fairly fast paced tour. The main 'downtime' is when travelling so relax, enjoy the bumpy Indian roads and be ready for the amazing sights and experiences that greet you each day....starting early most days......It is worth it though!

A tour de force through some of the legendary parts of Northern India. Fast paced with not much time to sleep or breath but lots of authentic experiences. From exhilarating tuk tuk rides racing through Jaipur and Varanasi either on the wrong side of the road narrowly escaping head-on collisions (sometimes driving them ourselves), or weaving in and out of the traffic at breakneck speed, to tasting some of the best (safe) street food ever.
