12 riders were too many as most canters were in single file resulting in bunching as too many horses
Canters were not particularly fast or long

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Hotels were excellent. Bonnie's relatives fort was dreadful. Bed was old, dirty mattress. Bathroom dirty. Rooms varying
Camping facilities for toilet and washing were ancient rusty, dangerous, dark, not working. Poor considering the cost of the holiday.
Drink prices with Bonnie higher than hotel?

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

Weather information was incorrect, warmer. Brochure written as January
Transport bus so bad, broken down I and another guest paid for private transfer on last leg. Felt ripped off considering cost of holiday.
[In The Saddle - the evenings when camping can be very cold, even in October/November, and so we always recommend bringing warm clothes but I was glad to read that you had warmer than expected weather. We have followed up the problems with the bus and will not be using this company again. We arranged an alternative vehicle, but we understand that you and another guest preferred to have longer in Agra and to make your own way to Delhi. As compensation, our agent in Delhi upgraded you to a Club room in Delhi and also arranged for complementary wine, fruit and cookies. We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused to you by the transport problems.]
