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

The whole three week and four day trip was memorable and to define just one instance is difficult, the places we visited will be with us for a long time and the people couldn't have been more helpful. If I were pressed then I would have to say the tiger sightings at Bandhavgarh, the photographs are stunning, then the Taj Mahal, the ghats at Varanasi all, all absolutely stunning. Incredible India..

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

I think the most important thing to remember is not to take your European head with you, go with the sights and sounds and enjoy the culture, enjoy the vibrancy ,the spectacular colours and the wonderfull and exciting cusine .. Our Varanasi hotel didn't serve alchohol due the closeness of the ghats and religeous culture there ..

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

Tourism will always benefit the people of any country .... India is an "up and coming" country with projects such as the Metro being built and should be in place and working in the near future. I visited India twelve or so years ago for the second time then and to see the upgrading that has taken place is truly amazing, especially the roads, just a pity about the amount of traffic in th cities...

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

We did loose a day due to the fog, all of the trains were held up and no one could define a time for our train to be released such was the backlog.. Apart from that it was a memorable and stunning adventure, memories that will stay with us for a long time to come. Helen is already talking of a return trip ..

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

Cycling in Delhi. Flying kites on the rooftops in Jaipur.

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

Homestays are wonderful, one gets a proper flavour of the area and the history that would be impossible in a hotel.

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

Yes, see below.

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

Really would highly recommend Sanjay from Bespoke Travel when booking a trip to India, his knowledge was in depth and he also understood clearly what we wanted out of our trip. My only criticism would be that spending 3 nights in Delhi over Republic Day was not clever as many of the sites were closed and our itinerary had to be adapted accordingly. On the plus side our cycling tour in Delhi was one of my highlights. Having booked through Uneasy no settle I would question the option offered of the elephant ride to the fort in Jaipur but that remained a choice for us. The trip to the textile village in Bagru was wholly responsible and very interesting. The Homestay way of traveling in India was enlightening, every place was individual and they all had a 'story'.

Hi Caroline , We have investigated with our team in Jaipur and you both should have only been offered the Electric Jeep up to the Amber Fort as per our Responsible Policy - there was a mis-communication which of course we hope did not spoil the experience for you. The team on the ground does apologise for this and we have re-iterated that our policies are followed. Thanks Sanjay
