  • India is a big country and there are some long travel days on this departure. Use these as an opportunity to relax, witness everyday life from the window of your vehicle and get to know your fellow travellers.
  • This trip travels by overnight train from Udaipur to Mumbai. While the overnight train can seem a little daunting, it is a very efficient way to travel long distances and maximising time in each place. Long distance and overnight trains can often be delayed and occasionally cancelled due to heavy fog between December and February.
  • This trip stays in a mix of accommodation to experience a variety of Indian life. Standards can vary though – there will be hot water in most but not all hotels.
  • The climate in India can vary in the different states – be prepared for hot sticky days and cooler evenings. Layered clothing is the best way to tackle this disparity in weather.
  • Old Delhi can be very busy and crowded. While it’s an exciting place to see local life moving around you, be aware that on the walking tour you’ll need to navigate through people, tight spaces and walkways.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • Is Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

     

  • What are some of the most popular tourist destinations in India?

    India is a veritable treasure trove of incredible places, but the most popular tourist destinations include the Taj Mahal in Agra, the Holy City of Varanasi, and Harmandir Sahib: the Golden City in Jaisalmer, the Red fort in New Delhi, and the Mecca Masjid in Hyderbad.

  • How many days are sufficient for an India tour?

    There are so many things to see and experience in India. You could spend six months exploring India and still feel like you have not seen it all. To experience India and its culture in a practical amount of time, you would need at least three weeks.

  • What are some of the tourist scams that I need to know about before visiting India?

    Unfortunately, India is known for having some unscrupulous people who scam tourists. Some common swindles include the 'fake' tourist office, the hotel switch, inflated taxi fares, and switching money for counterfeit notes. Keep your wits about yourself, and you should be fine.

  • Is India a safe place for tourists?

    India is generally safe for tourists. However, petty crimes, such as pickpocketing and purse snatching, are common. Tourists tend to be targeted in busy tourist areas, and petty crime frequently occurs on public transportation and overnight trains. Be aware of your surroundings and take care to avoid potentially risky situations.
