How was your Explore Tour Leader?
"Our Tour Leader was Raj. He was most helpful and enthusiastic, always looking out for the group and taking care of our needs. He always had a cheerful disposition and was full of information, that he was bursting to tell.
He would always sort out the best possible room arrangements for us, and check our levels of satisfaction. He would check out the cleanliness and hygiene of eating facilities, provide us with guidelines on costs and keep us posted each day with arrangements."
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
"Beware Taj Mahal security check means no liquids, creams, pens or straws as I discovered (leave these at the hotel or with your tour guide)
Be prepared in some places to be hassled to buy, take your tour guides advice, ignore completely if you are not interested, any reaction yes or no means they will persist. If you do get hassled just be patient, no one can force you to buy. Always agree upfront before proceeding with a transaction and make sure parties a clear. If you don't get the best deals just put in down to experience, I'm sure at time it was a good deal until someone else betters it.
Take along handwipes/bacterial gel and medication like immodium/diaralyte for just in case. Keep some mosquito repellant handy.
Pushkar ladies and young girls will need to cover their legs."
Do you have anything else to add?
A fantastic tour, full of the highlights of Rajastahan. Be prepared for some early mornings, but they are well worth it.
