Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Most of the accommodation was fantastic. I did not enjoy the glossy five star hotels in Delhi and Agra - It's just not a style I choose. I'd rather be somewhere a bit more cheap and cheerful if gorgeous historic hotels aren't on offer, although I appreciate there will be complications with that, especially in India, and I also know that the American clients in particular are unlikely to share my views!

Do you have any other feedback for us?

An incredible adventure. I would have like more time exploring on foot - there was an awful lot of time on the bus. A lot of the shops were also very touristy. One lunch restaurant was dire - we did feed back at the time. We all suffered a bit from the lack of downtime: building in a half day (second half of the day) as free time would be very welcome. We could have done with a lot more time at the bird sanctuary.

Finally, on our last day we had to make the trip to Delhi without a guide. Our transport was changed and it all got extremely chaotic. It worked out fine in the end but we didn't know what was happening and one person was convinced we were being kidnapped or scammed - not very relaxing! Nothing was fundamentally an issue except lack of communication.
